The Roasted Brussel Sprouts appetizer is Always Excellent, we split the Buttermilk Chicken Breast entree with sides of Parmesean Crusted Cracklin Potatoes & Rosemary Green Beans. Lacee, our server has been OUTSTANDING each and every time we have visited Tupelo Honey Chattanooga TN location!

Stopped in for brunch on a Sunday morning. Made reservation before 10:00am - I'd recommend that on Sunday as the place was packed and quite a long wait when we were leaving. Food was delicious, we had the Old Skool bowl and Avacado toast - OJ was kind of weak but everything else was fantastic including the short stack of sweet potato pancakes!

Omg this was the best. The food was so good, especially being vegetarian. My husband is the opposite and devoured the pork sirloin. The cauliflower tacos were so good. Our waitress was the best. We absolutely loved it and ordered takeout the very next day.

The food and service were both excellent. The only disappointment was in the sriracha on the chicken (thought it would have been spicier). Otherwise, excellent meal!

Great food and service! Our cauliflower app was Amazing! We never had it before or ever eaten at this Tupelo Honey in Chattanooga. Our waiter brought us out a second order of the cauliflower appetizer and it was breaded totally different, he said the order was put in twice but it was actually two different types of breading, maybe a kitchen mistake but Whatever the deal was they were both delicious!

We eat at Tupelo Honey very frequently. It's the best quality food in town. However during this visit in Chattanooga, we were treated very rudely by the server Sydney. Maybe she was having an off day, but she was very snooty every time we'd ask for simple things (coffee refill, to go box, normal stuff..). Hopefully just an off day, but we for sure won't be back for a good while due to this experience.

We were excited to go to Chattanooga Tupelo Honey after visiting the one in Asheville a while back. I made an OpenTable reservation on-line for 2. We arrived about ten minutes before our noon reservation, waited a bit for an acknowledgment (they were pretty busy). Once it was my turn, I did the normal - "we have a reservation for two at noon." They weren't able to find it. The host said he thought he had a place for us, but in the meantime make another reservation to see if that one came through. I did that, by this time it was for 1:00 because it was already afternoon. I received a confirmation and we waited. And waited. And waited. For about 15 more minutes, so we'd been there a total of 25 minutes. And while the host and others walked by us many, many times we were never acknowledged again. Even just a "we haven't forgotten about you!" would have been enough. So we left. Hungry. My note to management of this place - you can really go a long way by just recognizing people exist, ignoring us really left a bad taste in our mouth when what we were looking for would have tasted more like biscuits! It will probably be a long time before we attempt coming there again.

The food was absolutely delicious and our server, Jay, was wonderful! The only qualm I have is that the host/hostess station is hectic and unattended largely. The host/hostess is having to do too much, take orders and tend to things at the tables, when someone should always be available to greet customers and answer questions. We had a 10:30 a.m. reservation and did not get seated til at least 11:15 a.m. As the wait was an hour wait when we got there, we only saved 15 minutes by making a reservation.

What a gem! Nestled in downtown Chattanooga in Warehouse Row, this was one of our favorite spots during our 4 day stay in Tennessee. The food was amazing. I had the Mountain Harvest Bowl and my husband had the Southern Veg Bowl. After a long day of hiking, these dishes hit the spot. We also shared the Yeehaw Dunkel (a dark beer brewed in Nashville) and we splurged on the Flight of Mini Desserts. WOW! The portions were generous and the prices were on point.

We had brunch at Tupelo Honey over the weekend, and it was great! Please note that if you don’t make reservations in advance, you’ll have a 1+ hour wait for a table.
The food was excellent! We enjoyed the apple cider bacon, brioche French toast, and fried chicken with sweet potato pancakes, and we each enjoyed a mimosa. Service was great! The only frustration we had was the noise level. I think we just happened to be seated by a very noisy group of patrons, but it’s probably not that noisy all the time. We highly recommend the restaurant- great food and service!

We went for Sunday brunch and thankfully made a reservation. Our food was wonderful, but our service was absolutely terrible. We asked about a few menu items and our server knew nothing about them, didn’t come by to check on us for over 30 min and never refilled our drinks. For a restaurant with such a great reputation the management should spend more time interviewing servers!

Food (Pork Chop) was not quite as good as the previous time I enjoyed it immensely, probably because they had a different Cooking team in the kitchen. The entree of Shrimp & Grits were prepared perfectly, the shrimp done just right and a smooth and creamy grits pared well. The Snack sized appetizers of Brussel Sprouts & Roasted Jalapeño Cauliflower (First Time Tried) were very good. Sarah-Kate our server was Outstanding attending to our Booth / table as had other servers.

Outstanding food Brussel Sprouts appetizer, Bourbon Peppercorn crusted Meatloaf, Fried Chicken dinner. Superb service from Lacee, Gavin (GM) stopped by the table to say hello and chat briefly. Crusted MAC N’ Cheese and House Salad sides when well with Meatloaf. Sides of Parmagania Potato Cracklin’s & Green Beans with Rosemary rounded out the Fried Chicken entree! Great job and Outstanding food, nice Unique Decor throughout the restaurant!

Top quality food 🥘, Roasted Brussel Sprouts Appetizer was Outstanding with the bacon 🥓, onions 🧅 & seasonings the side of dipping sauce brought itches dish altogether. We had excellent Buttermilk Fried chicken 🐔 with enough to bring home. The marinaded Boneless Pork Chop could be cut with a fork. Great friendly service from server “Mercedes”. Our dining experience was at 4:15pm on Thursday August 20, 2020.

I was in town in business. I chose Tupelo Honey over Hennen’s. The experience was OK. Not what I expected from Tupelo Honey. The service was doable but nothing special. The quality of food was a little beneath the Tupelo Honey pre COVID quality. Finally I got banana pudding to go and when I arrived to hotel the banana pudding was eagerly. Took back to restaurant and they gave me fresh batch.

Food was great, entree, sides, and desert! Service was helpful and attentive. Food came out in a reasonable time and was hot.
Only thing I would improve is the beer list. Wasn’t bad, but could be more extensive.
We love going to this restaurant because of the relaxed atmosphere and the quality of food. It fills an every day dining gap!

I recently picked up the Tupelo Honey Cafe cookbook and read all of the recipes and stories. We decided to take our kids there when dropping my daughter off at college. Every bite was delicious. I had the fried chicken with salt and pepper brussels sprouts and crispy potato cracklins. I don't typically like white gravy but the first bite changed my mind. The flavor added so much depth to the fried chicken. The cathead biscuits really are as big as a cat's head. My daughter ordered fried green tomatoes for her entree. They came on a bed of grits. She was in heaven! My husband got the chicken sandwich. He raved. My son got a burger that he heartily enjoyed. We finished our meal with a dessert flight that included brown butter pecan pie, peanut butter mousse, and banana pudding. I don't like nots in my desserts so I wasn't a fan of the pecan pie. My fave was the banana pudding. My son finished off the mousse. It was a little expensive for the four of us however the food was completely fresh and overwhelmingly delicious. We will gladly go back again in the future!
