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!

Phenomenal experience. Ryan the manager was great. Our waitress Jewels was amazing. The food was to die for! We even met the chef who was really nice. From the time we walked in, to the time we left, we were well taken care of. 5 stars all the way around.

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.

This is my second place to this restaurant. The food, service, and ambience was great. The fillet was unbelievable. The fried green tomatoes are to die for. We had a wonderful time eating and socializing on Valentine’s Day. Our waiter was great, and the food was spectacular.

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 food was meh. The basics weren’t executed well. The service was slow. I feel like there’s a lot of potential here but they’re not paying attention to the details that make food and service enjoyable.

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.

It was a second date. The server, Alexis was lovely. I think I would have enjoyed my breakfast bowl a bit more had the white of the eggs been cooked. It was much more loose than I usually like. The rest of the bowl was delicious. I do wish that the biscuits provided to the table also came with butter, even without they were very good. All in all I will be going back to try their shrimp and grits.

The staff was all very pleasant and friendly but they were clearly short staffed as everything was in disarray. We waited 20 minutes past our reservation time to be seated and couldn’t get a drink at the bar because we were told they were out of glassware. When we did get our table it took the waiter 10 minutes to show and then they ended up being out of 3 different beers, the house sangria and two different wines we tried ordering which meant our drinks came after appetizers. The food is tasty but the rest was a mess - I felt bad for the staff who kept having to apologize for everything.

We came on a Tuesday before seeing a movie. Got in for HH and 50% off salads. We tried a bunch of the snacks off the menu, and while they were ranging from okay to awesome, for the price, this was well worth the visit. 4 snacks, 2 beers each, and a salad all under 50 dollars with tip! And service was really friendly and kind. We will be back soon.
