We've been here before. This time, the food wasn't as good as previous visits. The biscuit was a little hard/dry and the sweet potato soup had a vinegary taste. In the past, it's been sweet with a little kick of spice. Other than that, the visit was good. My brother in law loved his smothered chicken.

Had a good time at Tupelo Honey on Sunday with my sons. The place was packed and the staff, while very busy was extremely friendly. It did take a good while for the food to arrive, but it was delicious. The only reason I dinged them on value was that the shrimp and grits my son ordered was a little light on quantity for a relatively moderate price.

Food and service were good. However, the family next to us snuck a dog in and refused to leave when mgmt asked them politely to leave as it was a health code violation. One hour later…they left.

Tim was a great server. Never forgot us but did’t hover. Met by pleasant Self-Love greeter that was authentic and cool. Loved the decision to have servers masked up. It showed consideration for both their servers and their customers! Servant Leadership is apparent, great job Lawrence!

It was our first time to Tupelo Honey. Everything on the menu looked amazing. We had a hard time choosing. Hubby got the Divine Swine and I got the Country Fried Chicken. He got the Queen Mary Bloody Mary and I got the Debutante. Everything was absolutely delicious. Service was fantastic. I recommend reservations on the weekend. It seems to get pretty busy. Definitely will be returning every time I want brunch. Absolutely recommend!

Food was amazing! Great service. The host and waitress were so friendly. She came back multiple times to check on us and gave us great recommendations. The Old school breakfast bowl was so good and the Pink mimosa! I’ll definitely be back!

I have been to Tupelo Honey twice now and both times the food has just been so so. A bit disappointing. The cocktails are usually really good but I was disappointed with my mimosa, it seem like more orange juice than anything. I sent it back and didn't feel like the server offered much to make up for it. I don't plan to go back

A friend recommended this location for dinner for our family. We drove from Dumfries and the expectations were high. We were seated quickly as we had reservations. Our server may have been a bit overwhelmed as he kept forgetting items in our order. We had to ask multiple times for our youngest meal which was waffles (should’ve been quick). The cold brew wasn’t to my expectations but we were still charged. We waited for our drinks in to go cups and then had to remind our server what we were waiting for. Given the fact that we drove 30/40 minutes to this location for subpar service we probably won’t be back although the food was good. The service was lacking.

Food came out luke warm, we were halfway through the meal before the server brought out the requested sauces (one of which was hollandaise that was missing on a Benedict), we ordered two sets of biscuits, but only received one. Server never offered to a second round of drinks. Disappointing experience from a place we normally enjoy.

First visit to Tupelo Honey. The Arlington location is short staffed. Cleanliness not up to par- coffee cup had lipstick stains, side plates were stuck together and/or dirty. Food/drink - bar drink was incorrect, main dish was incorrect. Service - had to wait for server or look around to flag him. Having said all that, the food was good and the server corrected each error. But it is not cheap (100.00 for three of us) so I expected better.
