Southern
We are excited to bring our scratch-made Southern food and libations to Boise, ID in Fall 2019! Since 2000, Tupelo Honey continues to inspire a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home. We use fresh, responsibly-sourced and “forever free” ingredients to bring a scratch-made taste of the South everywhere we go. We are excited to intertwine the independent spirits of our Appalachian with the Sawtooth Mountains in Boise.

Overall good experience, however, the food took about an hour to finally come to our table. When it did arrive, it was somewhat cold, but fairly enjoyable. The service was phenomenal, but providing a biscuit with honey and butter isn’t going to make up for the delay in delivering our meals. Great aesthetic and environment, but relatively overpriced for something I could’ve ordered elsewhere. Not dogging on Tupelo Honey, but as my first time, I was expecting better.

We had a reservation at noon. We stood very uncomfortably in a corner right next to families enjoying their meal. After watching 4 different groups of people (larger than our 4 top) come in after us and get seated before us (mind you we had a reservation) it was unacceptable for a place that is not exactly cheap and offers reservations as an option. Next time, we will skip the reservation since it seems that you get seated faster if you do not have one.

I ordered a table for outside. Ended up having to wait 30 minutes outdooors while standing in heels only to be seated at the back corner of the inside of the restaurant. Not what I expect when putting in a reservation through open table and I’ve never had that experience any other time when booking at other restaurants.

The food is so phenomenal. They're doing a great job at managing pandemic issues while still providing a cool vibe and fantastic service. Our server Caleb was wonderful.
My husband said it's his new favorite restaurant in town.

Been here 6 times since opening and had declining experiences since then and has lost some of its charm.
They are pretty much always very busy and now seem to focus less on the dining experience and more on getting patrons in and out quickly.

Went here for brunch for the first time yesterday. We loved sitting on the balcony in the fresh hair, our server was great, and the mimosas were delicious. Highly recommend.

Food was good, fried green tomatoes did seem to be pre-packaged. Drinks a bit on the more expensive side for quantity but overall very nice restaurant. Will be going back

Wasn't as impressed this time, as our server didn't seem to have much personality. Maybe she was new.

Lots of good food but strange service. We were late in the day with a 7:45 reservation. I felt like the whole time we were getting rushed out. We spent a lot of money (apps, cocktails and dinner) and I expected better, more complete service.

We went to Tupelo Honey for my birthday dinner. I liked being able to choose to sit either indoors our patio. Tupelo was great at following covid safety protocols. All staff was masked up, and we saw tables being sanitized after each use. Customers were masked at all times except when we were eating. The noise level was disturbing because of the inconsiderate drivers on the street below. This was not the fault of TH, but it did affect the experience. Aside from that, food and drinks were amazing, and our server was awesome. I'll be back, but I may sit inside next time.

The food was great but the service was not. Our server took 45 minutes just to bring us drinks. We would’ve ordered more food and drinks but by the time we saw our server again, we all needed to get our checks and leave. We went a good 30 minutes without seeing her at all in the dining area. Love the food but just wish the service was better.

This was the second time going and I remembered the food exactly!!! I am so picky on my chicken sandwiches and these are the best I’ve had at any restaurant. Every side I have tried is delicious as well as every cocktail!

The servers are amazing and friendly! And the environment is so calming and relaxing!

Honestly the worst service we’ve ever had at Tupelo. Food was great, atmosphere was great, but our server was not. Took us an hour to get our food and we had a reservation and arrived before they opened. Our food was arriving at the same time as other patrons who arrived at the same time as us, were getting their bill and checking out. We were introducing a friend to Tupelo and this was not the way we wanted to do it unfortunately.

This visit to Tupelo Honey was fantastic. We went on labor day weekend for $3 mimosas. We ordered Banana Pancakes (the seasonal pumpkin pancakes were amazing) with bacon and eggs. You can't go wrong with a nice brunch at Tupelo Honey. Everything was delicious and with deals like $3 mimosas it's really hard to not come in everytime they run that promotion. The banana pudding on the pancakes keeps me coming back and ordering more. The waitress we had was very nice and was attentive to our table. Definitely one of my favorite breakfast spots in all of Boise. All in all we had an amazing experience this labor day and we'll be coming back for more. Great job to the kitchen staff and the wait staff. Everyone was doing excellent work and it made our visit a 5 star visit. Keep up the great work! You guys rock!

Great food! Sweet potato pancakes were delicious. Service was decent for being busy. $3 mimosas was a steal. We did get seated a bit late for a reservation since they only had one table option for our group and we had to wait until the previous group was done. Waited an extra 20 min probably. Kind of a bummer but food was worth it.

What a great find! We decided to give this place a try for brunch and were pleasantly surprised. Fried chicken & biscuits, All I ‘Avo’ Wanted Benedict, and Mountain Blueberry Pancakes were all delicious! The service was great too! We’ll definitely be back.

Overall experience was nice and food was good. Would definitely go again just not on a weekend evening. Service was very slow, one of two drinks came, we had to ask for the second drink along with our appetizer which should have arrived sooner. We had about 6 different people helping with order, bring food items to taking and returning check. Friday evening traffic is loud with young drivers wanting to hotrod around. I would suggest going on a week night.

Worst experience ever. Wait staff was terrible, just a bunch of college kids who really don't care. Hostess was rude and get this you have to reserve a booth, but they don't tell you that when you place a reservation. But the worst part was the flies, they were everywhere. I will never go back.

I've been there a few times and every time I order something different and the food hasn't disappointed yet. It was so excellent. It was my companions first time and she loved it. There was a little fly buzzing around us and our food but other than that our server was super nice and efficient and the whole experience was wonderful.
