Very excited to go for their Presidents Day brunch -- $3 mimosas. The food was very tasty, but a little on the expensive side. The $3 mimosas came in small glasses and was basically orange juice. We ended up ordering their mega mimosa, which was a large wine glass for around $11. Still too much for what you got. The service was also not great. There were two very large parties seated behind us that seemed to occupy our waiters time, but there seemed to be plenty of other staff walking around that didn't help. This was my second time here and while the food is good, I probably wont be back due to the overall experience.

This place is cute and has a great menu selection. The food is decent at best, but nothing great or out of this world. Service was friendly. Their happy hour seems good, so I’m sure we’d come back to try that out.

Love the food and our server Matt was outstanding - attentive, friendly, and relaxed. I wish the music could be a tad softer for older folks who don't want to feel like they are in a bar, and also for families with little kids so they don't hurt their ears too early in life.

I was excited to try the restaurant. When we arrived, it took the bartender 10 minutes to acknowledge us and the same when friends joined. The bar was not busy and only had two other couples sitting at it. When we were seated, the waitress brought us drinks and pronounced to everyone that they were out of cranberry juice and then have me my drink with just a little in it. My friend jokingly said, there is a Safeway across the street. The waitress was surly and when I ordered decaf coffee at the end she told me it would be awhile because she had to brew it. This could be overlooked if the food was good. It was nothing special and underseasoned. Hopefully, they will train the wait staff to be a little more customer friendly and attentive.

Sadly this was one of the worst dining experiences I've had in awhile. The food was....not good. The chicken was bland, the salt and pepper brussels had no salt and pepper. The scalloped potatoes were okay, except for the fact that I ordered mashed potatoes. The service was painfully slow. Won't be back anytime soon!

I enjoyed the food. The ambiance was nice. The high top table reminded me of a patio table, which was cool. However, food gathers in the slots, which isn’t pleasant to look at. Service was professional but slow. There was a guest who screamed nascar sounds, which was annoying. Restaurant checked all the right boxes and will return. The food was good and traditional southern with some minor twists making it fancier.

A hopping place for a great southern dinner. The fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, and biscuits are top notch. My only complaint: the fried were so-so as was the Mac and cheese but otherwise a good meal. The service was excellent. Our server checked in frequently but also was not in our face.

The presentation of the food was nice but that's about all. The chicken of the Southern Taco I ordered was slightly overcooked; the soft taco shell was stale. The side of cheese potato gratin was lukewarm when it arrived at my table.

The Honey Chipotle Wings were flavorful, and the French fries were a great combination of crunchy outside + soft inside, but I wouldn't dine here again. The service was great b/c the server was very attentive.

The restaurant advertises several "southern" dishes to people who don't know any better.

We had another good experience at Tupelo Honey. In the past we had visited the Asheville, NC location and had no issues. Thursday night the service and food were good and our waitress was very attentive. Our only issue was the noise volume, it was a little hard hearing my wife across the table from me.

I had a wonderful brunch at Tupelo Honey! The food was delicious. The atmosphere was chill and had a great vibe. Our waiter was super attentive and very helpful. Brunch is open until 4pm and it was not hard to book at reservation through open table. Overall, this was an amazing experience and I highly recommend this restaurant!

Tupelo Honey was just okay. The ambiance reminds me of "instagram-worthy" stories of what one wishes brunch was like, but really it's nothing special. The service was just okay. We never had our water refilled, we waited about 35 minutes for our brunch entrees to arrive. They served us the appetizers twice (not complaining, but we felt a little awkward about it). We were told that bisquits were coming, so 20 minutes later, the 2 bisquits did actually arrive. The food at least looked and tasted fresh, however it lacked some flavor (their honey sriracha sauce made up for some of it). It was a pretty cute place, but the service and food just didn't wow us enough to want to go back.

The best brunch we have had in a long time ! Started off with drinks and they were delicious....beer on tap and southern mimosa, yummy and thirst quenching. Our waitress was attentive and recommended some amazing dishes that were delicious. Our meals were fresh tasting and perfectly cooked. We also enjoyed the southern biscuits with honey. We will definitely be back and recommend Tupelo Honey to others. Thank you!

Tupelo Honey is a beautiful location both indoor and outdoor for brunch. Everything was great but we went on a very cold morning right when it opened; the restaurant was uncomfortably cold as was the food that was served. While the service was great and the food tasty, it would be better a better experience to eat while warm with warm food.
