Great food and friendly service. It's a little loud with a pretty full dining room to speak with friends though.

We love to stop in Franklin at Tupelo Honey on our way to Nashville Airport to drop family off. Family favorite are the spicy cauliflower bites, the Benny, and the Avocado Toast Points. Great service and great food!

First visit to this location - have been to TH in Chattanooga and Asheville. Great menu - especially brunch. My only thing that needed improvement was temperature of food. Biscuits didn’t melt butter. Potatoes were lukewarm. Even coffee was just warm. Otherwise great experience!

Worst ever TH experience. Server obviously did not want to be at work and apparently neither did kitchen staff. Food was not good.

We absolutely LOVED this place! We wanted something unique for our New Years dinner and this did not disappoint! Everything was delicious, service was great and the atmosphere was perfect! The shrimp and greats were amazing but the skillet pork chop was unexpectedly the hit at our table!

We wanted to have dinner for new year eve and choose Tupelo honey. The food was good. Not as hot as we wanted when it came out but still really good. The drinks were ok. Not a fan of the house margarita but overall we enjoyed the evening! Thank you

Reservation was for party of 7 at 6:15 on New Year’s Eve. Although our table was ready we were told we could not be seated until precisely 6:15. We were seated at 6:20. Our server, Riley, was promptly at our table to take our drink and appetizer order. His service remained impeccable throughout the evening. We ordered a variety of entrees and sides. General consensus was that the Mac n cheese and collard greens were the best things on the table. Prices were reasonable and food was better than average.

Food was just okay, wasn’t anything special. Presentation was immaculate, however the taste was subpar. Fried chicken was amazing! I would definitely go again, just probably get something different.

We’ve come here for years…..haven’t been in some time. The deterioration of the place is sad and distressing. The bathrooms looked like they hadn’t had a deep clean in months.

The service was fast, friendly and efficient!

The food was OK but not the level we’ve been used to…the harvest bowl salad was a mushy mess of ingredients. The fried chicken (only had white meat…out of dark) consisted of a nearly meatless wing and a breast…quality was good but $15 for one breast and no side? (Side was extra) The Mac and cheese had been sitting for hours and had that warmed up grainy taste. Probably not returning until they have their stuff together.

I decided to dine here to celebrate my 25th birthday. I’m so glad that I did! My server was extremely kind and attentive. He and management went above and beyond to make my experience special!! The food was amazing! I had the shrimp and grits with cracklings on the side. I also tried the brussel sprouts as an appetizer, highly recommend!!!

I’ve dined at Tupelo Honey in Charlotte, NC & Atlanta, GA and I must say that Tupelo Honey Franklin exceeded the experiences at both of those locations!! The food was spectacular and the staff was inviting and kind. Doesn’t get better than that!! Thank you all again for my making my birthday special.
