I came here on Wednesday April 7th for my birthday and it was awesome. They were so kind and treated me like a princess, which was nice. Having my second quarantine birthday wasn't that great but they made it so memorable. I felt bad for the servers who were working because they were the only servers in the whole restaurant. Overall, it was so wonderful. We will definitely be back.

Easter Brunch reservation for 3. Sat outside. Enjoyed bloody mary while waiting for our appetizers. Restaurant is following all Covid Protocols. Great service and delicious food. The buscuits and fried pickles are amazing! The Shrimp and grits was our favorite entree!

Had a great time at Tupelo Honey! The service was excellent, as well as the food! They also do a great job sanitizing each table afterwards so I felt very safe overall.

My French tasted absolutely awful. Bathrooms were horrendous, it was literally like no one looked after it. Waiter took forever to come and ask for our orders. My bacon for some reason tasted like bananas. I tasted one piece and almost gagged in my mouth. This is very disappointing because I love the Tupelo Homey in Virginia Beach but this one on Arlington was so bad. I don’t recommend anyone coming here. Just pick another restaurant to eat at.

Date night in the time of COVID-19. Love the THC; My husband and decided to go out. Everyone respected the social distancing guidelines and they all seem to be enjoying themselves. Friendly and kind staff. We ordered the “biscuits for a cause”, because it helps to give back in the smallest way – pay it forward people. My husband tried the shrimp and grits and love them! I had a BBQ burger and fries. Delicious! I had a mini banana pudding and my husband had the mini chocolatey pecan pie, both were excellent. We will be back for more date nights.

Dined outside for brunch — it was chilly but, for my first time out to a restaurant in nearly a year, worth it. The food was great but the highlight was our server, Alexis. On point recommendations, attentive and friendly.

I think it’s great that Tulepo is wonderful for allowing us to safely enjoy dinner and celebrate the special occasion with a cake! The only thing is to be aware that the restaurant closes at 9:30pm, last call is at 9pm. So plan your evening accordingly.

Southern biscuits are one of a kind and blueberry sauce is delightful. Service is prefect, martini for lunch is a wonderful idea, friend chicken with grits were very nicely done. I always enjoy going there its a warm place with great food and service. Highly recommend. I plan to be back yet again and soon.

The ambiance and music was excellent, the food was bomb EXCEPT for the mac and cheese. I gave it another go but it was not hot and cheesy/melty but firm and a bit dry. All the other sides I've tried have been excellent. There's great people watching if you sit by a window and if not, it is always a very diverse crowd that comes in so you can people watch if your window view is none. The staff is pretty friendly with the attentiveness ranging from fair to great. We keep this restaurant in heavy rotation and recommend it to anyone we know or who plans to be in the area. This is a MUST try--everything is good! (The mac and cheese comment is just my personal opinion as all palates are not created equal :)

I've been wanting to check this place out and it was worth the wait. A delicious brunch to check out with friends. Yes to the biscuits to start and ughh definitely get the fried chicken to try. The potato cracklin is a must too! I'm amazed how crispy they were. Also a good cocktail list too. Our server, Shineeta was absolutely phenomenal! She went above and beyond and if we return I hope we'll be able to be seated with her again. Pro tip-download their app! You can get 5 dollars off or get a free cute pint glass but they also have other awesome benefits!
