Our waitress was very earnest and helpful, but the service was very slow, coffee lukewarm and the food just so so. I have eaten at the Tupelo in Charlotte NC and had a fantastic experience.

Recognizing that all restaurants all experiencing shortages in labor, I will add that maybe that was the reason for the lackluster experience.

The pork shoulder, collards, mac and cheese and spicy fried chicken were delicious. Service was a little slow due to government policy, but I’ll return.

Service was amazing. Was seated right away, no waiting pass our reservation time. I ordered the country southern style chicken and waffles. That dish was not seasoned at all. It was bland, I should’ve gotten the sriracha honey chicken is waffles instead. I expected more from the food.

I went for breakfast and I think they need better menu. For example you can only get a southwest omelet - no option for regular omelet. You can get waffles and pancakes but not French toast.

Waiter Michael or Maurice seemed to be overwhelmed. I waited over 15 minutes for a water refill after requesting it. I saw my server laughing and joking with a co worker. I finally asked another server. My server stated that they were really busy after I spoke with the manager about my experience and concern. With that response I asked did he not think I was a busy person? This was my first time at this location. I had a wonderful experience at the Myrtle Beach location. The manager did help and offered us dessert.

Enjoyed the service and ambiance—fairly quiet and uncrowded at weekday lunch. Shrimp and grits were tasty, but portion seemed small for the price.

While the staff was very kind, we were a party of 2 and one of our meals were wrong and it took over 30 minutes to get her meal out.

The food was fine enough, but the restaurant was not busy snd it seemed like we had to keep asking where the meal went.

Do not skip the biscuits as a starter! I could have eaten these for a meal. We had brunch reservations and waited a few minutes for our table. I would also recommend having reservations as walk-ins were being told seating would be available 2+ hours out.
Server was so sweet and the food was really good. I had fried chicken and macc/cheese which were both enjoyable. My friend had the chicken sandwich and fries which she said was good but nothing standout. I would definitely return.

Very nice decor. Friendly and Professional staff!

Enjoyed the Bloody Mary, Biscuits, fried green tomatoes, & pancakes. The chicken needs more/ better seasoning . Dipping sauce would have been nice. Most Important Especially for Breakfast/ Brunch...BETTER COFFEE! It was week & lukewarm.

Chicken was tasty but sides lacked any flavor. Mac and cheese was basically cooked pasta baked with cheese and fries/brussel sprouts lacked any salt or pepper. Far from southern comfort.

Overall the experience was not bad at all. The only thing was that service was not A1. When we arrived, the hostess Andrea mentioned that “they were closed for walk-ins” and only taking reservations. I told her we didn’t have a reservation so she said they wouldn’t be able to sit us and to come back another time. That’s it!

Well lucky I have some brain knowledge and when we walked outside, I checked the website, they had open reservations for 2:15, 2:30,2:45pm and so on. Even if reservations are mandatory, advise us that we can online and try to make a reservation instead of making it seem like we SOL.

When I came back in I advised, the 3 parties who also were turnt away and then proceeded to tell Andrea we now had a reservation but as a customer courtesy it would have been nice for her to at least try to guide us in the right direction instead of not caring about what it took to get there or not. Her attitude seemed like she could care less.

Next our waitress was nice but slowwww. She mentioned that she had tables on the inside and we were on the outside so that was the cause for the delay. The issue is that EVERYTHING took forever and just really put a damper on the whole experience.

Food was decent, Mac and cheese was great. Will be back with a premodern reservation and hopefully better customer service from the entire team.
