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.

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.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect of the “southern” style food they serve here. It was very good. The crispy Brussels sprouts were perfectly cooked, the fried chicken was crispy without being greasy, the pork cooked in duck fat was amazing and so tender. All of the side dishes were also very good and we didn’t leave any food on our plates.

Everything was wonderful! We had to change our reservation last minute and they were very accommodating. The only downside was how long it took to get our food, not a good choice for an hour lunch break if you have a full party of six...but definitely worth the wait. Love this place!

The fried chicken was great but the fried okra desperately needed seasoning. Our reservation was for 7:15 and at 7:30 we were told it was last call for drinks....what? That was odd and unfortunate but everything else was great.
