They were severely understaffed. A lot of the tables were dirty. Food was painfully slow getting out and not hot at all when it came to our table. The food was also unseasoned. The fried chicken could’ve been good but no flavor. I wasn’t upset because I worked in the restaurant business before, they just need more staff in FOH and BOH.

We reserved outdoor seating but it started to drizzle so had to be seated indoors. We were one of the first five to arrive when they opened, had this reservation too. They assigned us a not so nice spot right off the main door and when we asked for a booth, we were refused for some lame excuse about other reservations blah blah blah. Very disappointed about that and made me mad. Will stay away from this place. Thee are plenty on their choices around.

We enjoyed our appetizers and entrees. We felt a little neglected by our server though.

Normally, I would recommend this restaurant and give a better review. Food was really good and had great presentation. The server seemed new and not familiar with some of the menu items. Our food and drinks came out slow, Not sure if that was the kitchen or the servers fault. Maybe just needed more training but she was very energetic. The bathroom was very dirty and the urinal in the men's room was out of order. I mentioned it to hostess upfront and she said that she would take care of it but I went in later to use the bathroom again but it never got cleaned. Overall, it was an ok visit.

Great for Mother's Day brunch. Good food, great flavor. I ordered the spicy chicken and waffles as did two others in my party. Their chicken was nice and crisp, while mine looked more like baked chicken. I probably just had an odd thick piece of chicken? Great fried green tomatoes and great unsweetened tea. We will be back.

The waiter was good. We liked the ambience. Great location but after reading the reviews and choosing because of them, we were very disappointed til the point two later we are still talking about our experience. We all had the chicken and waffles. It’s wasn’t good at all. Wasted money for sure. The waffle was lukewarm and very dry. Tasteless. The chicken was so dark and greasy. No taste. Sorry but my truth. Would not recommend.

Our service was not a great experience. After the initial hand out of waters, our waitress didn’t come back until 30 minutes later (when asked up front) to take our drink order. We did not receive the correct drink order until over 60 minutes after we had arrived to the restaurant (wine) - we had to go up to the. desk to ask again. The bill needed to be corrected a few times to reflect my friends purchase. The following day, she found out that they had overcharged her card.

This was our second visit. Returned for the fried Brussels. Food was great. Fried Brussels not quite as crispy. Room temperature a little cool, near the door to the patio. Server was busy, only checked on us maybe twice.

Our server was so great. He made us a fresh pot of coffee and made sure to check on us. Apologized when our food was delayed SLIGHTLY. The food was delish and nicely prepared. Lots of pant-based options on the menu

Our food was excellent. Big enough to satisfy our basketball player after two games but not so much that we were miserable after eating. Our waitress was exceptional.

The best grits I’ve ever had. WOW! My husband and I were so impressed with the food that we went back the next day. I wish we had a Tupelo Honey near us in Tampa, Florida!

We had a lovely brunch at Tupelo Honey. The Mimosas were delicious. We also had fried pickles and everyone enjoyed them. For my entree I had the avocado grain bowl and it was healthy and delicious. There were so many delicious options on the menu; it was hard to choose. Great spot for brunch - I will return!

Ambiance nice, Food was fine, service was lacking, but not all at fault. They were clearly short staffed. Food was cold when it came out, but just ate it because it was well over 10 mins before he checked on us again. Never refilled my tea, but offered to refill my friends mimosa. People that don’t drink, can tip good too, and I did. Glad I tried it, but I won’t go back. I was there for brunch.

Our server was incredible! They had accidentally sent out only one main instead of two, and she went above and beyond rectifying the situation. Food was amazingly delicious, as always, and the coffee was top notch.

The music was too loud. You say "energetic"; I say, "painful." If I can't hear others in my own party, the music is too loud. They no longer offer complimentary biscuits. The host was on his third day and still not quite on his game. This used to be my weekly treat when the Mountain Harvest Bowl was perfect b/f the unnecessary menu change; now the bowl hurts my gut, and there's little else on the menu I'm able to eat. The server named Asia used to be a HUGE reason I went there each week; she's the BEST server ever. I moved, though, and don't know if she still works there. Our server Friday night was OK, but she'll never be Asia.
