Hostess was mad after telling me it was an hour and 1/2 wait, I booked thru open table 50 min wait. So her plan was to make us wait the full 1 1/2 hrs but we spoke to manager and got seated immediately. Service after that was great.

Recipes are outstanding but the server made no attempt to cover how stressed he was and told us kitchen was running behind...then a manager served us cold food. So this visit wasn't so great but we'll return because we've enjoyed ourselves here plenty of times.

First off the service was great! All I can say about the food is,"the chief needs to taste what he send out." The Cracklin Potatoes were so heavily salted they were inedible. The Southwest omelette I ordered had a very strange pungent sauce that overpowered the eggs, sausage, and avocado I normally love. I was very disappointed in how "heavy handed" the kitchen was in using Tuupelo Honey's normally unique, yet subtle, flavors in their recipes. The star of the food needs to be the items ordered not the salt, spices, and sauces. I will be going somewhere else for my Sunday Brunch in the future.

Always enjoy Tupelo.
Great people, food and ambiance.
Only critique I can make this time is the side was described as “crispy” fries and they were not. Everything thing else was great.

The chicken and waffles were served cold.
The fried chicken in the chicken sandwich’s was dry, not moist.

Compared to other locations, food was subpar. We loved this restaurant in Denver.

In Nashville, the breading was heavy and salty and the honey dust was nonexistent because of it. Potato fritters were salty and overcooked as well and Brussels were bland.

Waitress was great.

Cocktail was not stirred before serving so club soda was the first sip.

Bathrooms were not clean.

Felt like going to KFC, honestly.

I took my boys (ages: 5 & 15) to brunch. There was something on the menu for all of us. I was pleasantly surprised at their gluten free options! Enjoyed everything. We dined outside so my only criticism would be that there aren’t fans to keep flys away.

I enjoyed the dinner much better than the first time. As a single mom, it was a nice break.
The potato cracklins were better last time but overall service was lovely and it was nice experience.

We brought our son, his wife and two children for a birthday dinner last weekend. The food is unique and outstanding! My granddaughter was able to order pancakes and bacon for her birthday dinner. The waitress was kind, helpful and efficient. I highly recommend Tupelo Honey for all occasions.

Amazing atmosphere, food, and service! The staff was one of the friendliest experiences we’ve ever had! We brought our dogs to sit on the patio and everybody was super friendly and brought out water bowls as well. Highly recommend and we will absolutely be back!

Tupelo Honey was a true gem. Food was tasty and portion sizes were perfect. We tried the mac-n-cheese waffle which was delicious. I would highly recommend making a reservation because it can be quite busy but if you don’t I would say the food service is definitely worth the wait 😋. Can’t wait to go back.

While like most restaurants today it was load but as always the food and ambiance was great. My wife and I will definitely be back soon but probably without another couple because it was difficult to have a decent conversation

Mediocre meal, drinks, service ok. Had the fried chicken, Popeyes is better, salad w/grilled chicken $18 Zaxby’s is better. Nice place to have drink, but passing on the food.

Terrible service- brought coffee about 15 minutes before the cream and sugar and had to ask for it. Food was way too salty. I have given up on this place. Other locations are better like in Asheville but this location is consistently bad service and not worth it.

TH either goes really well or it doesn’t. Tonight started out well, the end was challenging. 3 items on check we didn’t order, second drink took 20 mins to arrive. Food was excellent. Sad they charge for biscuits now & not as tasty as they once were. & no honey with them.....Still a good spot generally.

Good service, great outdoor seating; food was mediocre. Ordered the crispy Brussels as an appetizer after the waitress said it was her favorite; Came out looking like it was left out for a few hours. The rest of the meal was nothing to write home about- Maybe because it was a holiday and slow that they didn’t put forward their best.

Picked this restaurant based on the rating- was disappointed. Long wait for drinks and food, entree temperatures were cool and overall very average. The bright spot of the meal were the biscuits.
