The restaurant was practically empty when we arrived, and they made a big deal about us requesting a booth. Seemed pretty unnecessary. We even offered to wait, even though we had a reservation and only one other couple was seated in a booth. Food was excellent and so was the service which redeemed our experience with the hostess.

Food and service were good, however, waiter never cleared away the empty plates after we finished eating - even though we sat at the table for quite a while after finishing our meals…..

Our first time at Tupelo Honey. Fried chicken was tasty. Pieces on the small side. Appreciate the waiter’s suggestion to get the sweet hot sauce on the side. Ordered biscuits off appetizer menu to be served with the meal. Ordered Mac’n Cheese and Cheese grits as sides. Somehow we received Brussels sprouts instead of the grits. After pointing this out to our server, he brought them out. Would have appreciated having Coke slaw or a side salad as an option for a side. One side should be included with the fried chicken meal, not extra!

Food from the kitchen was very slow in being prepared. My meal, which was sweet potato cakes was over cooked and small. It was hard to cut the pancake up even with a knife. Will never order that again. But the chicken and waffles was great that my husband had.

Arrived in time for our reservation and waited 30 minutes until table was ready. Hostess was not very hospitable- seemed unhappy in her job. Wait staff was excellent however.

Went there with 3 of my college friends. We all agree- the food was fair/okay and none of us would return. Our server, LaMonte, was fun, helpful, engaging, and shared in our fun time seeing each other. He was pretty busy, but helped our night go even better. The alcoholic beverages were not good either and overall, just not an impressionable place.

Omg the food was amazing. I had the chicken and waffles with grits, sweet potato casserole and potato cracklings. The duo of pecan pie and banana pudding was amazing.

We enjoyed lunch with some friends on a Saturday. The food and service were very good but a little slow in getting our meal. They were very busy though.

The mahi tacos and brussel sprouts were very good!

Will definitely be back.

I felt the prices were too high for friend chicken then had to pay $3 for each for both sides. At least throw in free biscuits.

Food excellent.

Too bright. Bathrooms were dirty. Server was very kind and food came fast but i wouldn’t consider it a good quality food restaurant. More laid back, country.

With many choices to choose from, the two Bloody Marys were ordered were fantastic. For dinner we had the Tupelo Shrimp & Grits (creamy deliciousness) and the Cast Iron Pork with brussel sprouts and sweet potato casserole which was fabulous. Morgan our server was delightful and accommodating, couldn't ask for a better server.

Me and my husband were expecting a nice brunch like we’ve enjoyed so many times before at Tupelo but this experience was disappointing. We had a 12:15 reservation and we got seated promptly. The booth was nice but there was a large party (20 people at least) right next to us. They were celebrating something and having a good time. But it was pretty loud. I get that that’s not something the restaurant has much control over but maybe give a group that size a little more space? We sat for probably 25 minutes waiting to be greeted and finally the sweet server tending to the large party had to ask if we’d be taken care of yet! We’re not her table. She was taking orders and tending to her huge party and still noticed that we hadn’t been greeted yet. She gets another server’s attention and sends them our way. We were in the middle of giving this girl our order and a different server approaches us and defensively tells the server taking our order that this was HER table. The girl taking our order apologized and said “they’ve just been waiting a while and so and so asked me to greet them.” Anyway, it was tense and awkward. But we finished ordering and then they both walk away and seem to hash things out. The second server comes back with our drinks and apologizes for our wait and explains that she also had a section around by the bar which was why she didn’t see us. Whatever. She was overly nice and I assume trying to make up for everything but then our food all came out at once- appetizer and entrees together- and just felt very rushed after that point. I get it was probably just an off day. They had a large and loud party taking up the restaurant and a lot of servers running food and drinks to this table. But the most awkward part was the tension between the two servers taking our order. 😬 Just gonna chalk this time up to maybe not being prepared for that party and everyone generally being overwhelmed.
