Really enjoyed our brunch meal! It was great to go out and eat great food I did not make at home. Felt good about being outside.

I do think some of the servers might want to get masks that fit better.

The food was really great! It's not a cheap date but very tasty.

We will be back to try other amazing things on the menu.
Thanks!

One of my favorite restaurants!! The staff was so nice and so helpful. Our waitress was unbelievably nice and amazing, she would check up on us and genuinely seemed like she cared for our well being. The food came out PERFECT! We had a table of 6 and no complaints came out of anyone’s mouth. We are also all 21+ year olds and had been drinking so we were maybe a little obnoxious but the staff was still so friendly towards us. 10/10 experience.

The staff and food were awesome. Everyone operated within the COVID-19 guidelines, that is feel at ease. I was also taken back by the fact that they have a fund for the staff that may be in need. I don’t live near the restaurant but I will patronize it again for that simple fact.

I felt very safe having my six month inside the restaurant during COVID. Clean and spaced out with quick food service. We’ve continued to leave DC to eat here as it is taking the restrictions seriously without impacting our dining experience.

Delicious...a consistent favorite. Service is quick and attentive. Love the brunch all day. My favorite items are probably the catfish and the Shoo Mercy griddle. Cocktails are also on point. Definitely recommend.

Overall good experience. The food was on point as always! Service wasn’t great but it’s also COVID-19, so I am sure it’s a weird time. Solid dinner for sure- the Mac and cheese and greens are amazing!

I have been here twice - one for happy hour and second for brunch and enjoyed them. I was definitely amazed by their selection of skillet shareables! They are a bomb and worth all your calories. Of all the skillets, I particularly enjoyed their cheesy Mac and cheese balls and couldn’t stop at one. For the brunch, we ordered a wide selection of plates such as sweet potatoes pancakes, garden veggie burgers, eggs, and side plates. They were all very delicious and filling. If you are on the lookout for happy hour or causal brunch spot, definitely visit Tupelo Honey ;) I know would go there again to try their Pecan pie French toast.

To start, I have had exceptional service here in the past and ordered takeout multiple times during COVID. We made a mid-afternoon reservation as a late lunch bon voyage to friends. I put in the notes that we would have people coming and going and asked to be seated close to the edge of the patio. This was done but upon arrival, the feted fans were greeted with gruffness to the point that when I arrived they joked not to expect kindness. We ordered cocktails and appetizers and then entrees. Upon ordering dessert, we were told our two hours were up, and we needed to finish quickly as another reservation would be arriving. I understand the business of this, but NOTHING was said as we placed order after order during our less than two hour time frame until the waitress forced us out. (We actually just thought that she wanted to close out the check and were utterly shocked.) I know there is a pandemic, but we were clear on our purpose for lunch and felt quite unappreciated and shocked at the abruptness especially given that we stood on the corner saying good-bye for almost a half hour and then drove by and no one was seated at the table. I don’t mind timed sittings, but be up front if we need to rush.

Everything about Tupelo was great except for the fact that they messed up my reservation that I made a week prior. I went for my birthday, so I wanted everyone to be seated closer than we were. Other than that, everything down to the mimosas were great.

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.

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.
