We always enjoy going to Tupelo. The food is good and service wonderful. Today's issue is food was not hot. We had to turn back soups and coffee. My dish was lukewarm, but I didn't bother with that.

The food was amazing! I had the sweet potato pancakes with fried chicken. My wife had the fried catfish with Mac and cheese and okra. Everything was great and reasonably priced. We also had the spicy cauliflower for a appetizer. Our tab was under $65 and the service was great!! I will definitely return whenever I’m in downtown Arlington.

I love Tupelo Honey brunch. I had the 'Fit to be Tied' Benedict, and I died and went to heaven. So good!

Our table was ready when we got there. Our server was fantastic. She was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. We ate outside due to covid. The appetizer of avicado toast arrived after our drinks and shortly after we finished our lunch arrived. Perfectly timed. I can't wait to try more menu items.

First Time at TupelWonderful service ... absolutely wonderful and perfectly cooked food. Mimosa's were on point.
Sat outside ... it was absolutely wonderful. Danielle greeted us with a smile and the young man that waited on us was very patient.

Eight of eight satisfied diners. Southern Cobb with fried chicken was the most popular choice with our group, followed by the avocado chicken sandwich.

The Sever was friendly and patient. It is a team environment. The team members chip in seamlessly. I enjoyed my time and the ambiance of the establishment. The coffee and mimosas were flowing and brunch options were bar none.

Went for the $2.50 smash burger special, burgers were raw, they'd probably been seared for 30 seconds, even the waiter was in shock when we showed him. Burgers were poorly assembled, some didn't have pickles, and others didn't have cheese even though we ordered standard ones.
Plates were dirty, eewww
The pecan pie was super sweet, If that's your thing you might like it.
Overall the experience was pretty subpar and a waste or time and money.

I go to Tupelo Honey often. It’s a nice restaurant and a quick walk from my office. The service is ALWAYS great; wonderful wait staff who are friendly and do everything to make you happy. The food tends to be hit and miss. Today, my guest truly enjoyed his cheeseburger and fried okra, said it was delicious. I had the southern Cobb salad with salmon, and it was just OK. It was an average salad I could get at a chain restaurant, really nothing spectacular. In the past, I have had brunch here that was fantastic, fish that was overcooked, chicken that was too dry, delicious collard greens, fabulous mixed drinks. Like I said, hit and miss. I will still go to Tupelo Honey because, as I said, nice place and a quick walk from the office. Menu is varied enough to to have something on it for everyone.

Food was very good. More vegan menu items or at least be able to more easily modify veggie dishes into vegan would be nice. Service was excellent (Jessyca was our server)!

I really enjoyed their food and ambience. I highly recommend their Mac and cheese, and fried okra! For cocktails, I LOVED their eternal spring so much I ordered it twice. I had their speciality chicken and it was also good. As someone who doesn’t like sweet stuff, their honey dust seasoning was alright but I would like to try their spicy version next!

Service started out really good, really like when you feel a server is honest about food and drink suggestions/preferences. Then petered out, perhaps a bit understaffed and bad timing. Apps were really good, then barely warm soup and side of sprouts with no taste and cob salad lacking something. Asked for soup to be warmed, seated outside cold fall night, server said something about microwave and not being able to bring back to the table. Customers don't care about that, just want hot food. She definitely seemed annoyed.

Our server Liz was great. We were there at 10am. Our food was cold when it arrived. Bacon was hard. Pancakes cold. Butter not melted. Eggs were cold but cooked to the way my husband likes them. Eggs was very salty. Potato crackin was salty and cold not even warm. The potatoes were hard like they were prepared the day before. The food did not seem freshly prepared. I was very disappointed in the food.
