Very busy for “limited seating due to COVID”. We had a reservation but still had three different hosts/servers working our table. Understaffed and food was over cooked.

Food was good and servers were kind. Very loud and busy! Great fried pickles, 10/10.
The bathroom was as bad as an abandoned highway gas station, very very gross with no toilet paper to be found. Major downfall

Brussel sprouts were amazing! Best anywhere!
French toast and harvest salad were good.
Fried chicken entree with no sides for $12.95 was a little disappointing.
We had a couple of mix-ups with the food being served.
Overall, a good experience and we will return.

I had the honey dusted fried chicken and my husband had the meatloaf. Both were cooked to perfection and delicious. Sides were fresh and hot upon arrival at the table. The biscuits and blueberry compote are a must.

We went to Tupelo Honey for lunch at 1 p.m. It was our first visit. The inside was very nice and not too busy that time of day. The menu had selections that were unusual and interesting for a daytime meal. We each selected a different dish. The sandwiches were delicious and the potatoes delightful - we chose the "other" potato option rather than fries. I would got back to Tupelo Honey just for them! We also had the flight of two desserts - banana pudding and pecan pie tart. Both were very tasty but the pecan pie tart could have been better if it was warm.
The server was very good and friendly. Prices were reasonable.

I love this restaurant for business, lunch with friends and birthday celebrations. The staff is one of the best parts--excellent and very helpful. Easy to social distance--they take care to space you away from others while eating.

Food was good, but took a long time to arrive, service was wonderful, but they need to dim the lights in the evening, it was very bright like you were in a cafeteria.

Service was not great not sure if it's because they were understaff at the time we came or not. Our server/bartender was not attentive, was hard to get his attention to reorder our drinks.

The whole experience was outstanding. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We shared a potato app, pork shoulder meal with cheese grits and brussel sprouts, finished with banana pudding. All were excellent. The waiter was spot on with recommendations and encouraged us to take our time. We will be back soon.

First time coming here and it didn’t disappoint. My wife and I shared the melty pimento cheese dip with added chorizo. Then split a half bird with “bee dust” on it and collard greens. Exceptional chicken. Drinks were on point as well. Signed up for their rewards program and going back ASAP.

Food was excellent. Menu is creative and fresh. Unique dishes and seasonings, etc. Only two complaints:

PRICE: Entrees are $1-$3 too pricey comparably to other places. The banana pudding dessert is WAY overpriced - Nearly $8 for basically a 4 oz serving is just too high. It IS very good, but should be at least twice the size if not more for that money.

SAFETY: This is why I scored the "ambiance" only a 3 - with COVID issues, your tables should be either more spaced OR use only every other one - we were easily within 2-3 feet of nearby table - not good in these times.

Those were the reasons for lower score. Again: food and service was excellent, and we'll be back - we will choose more carefully for price next time. My total bill including tip was $68 for two - just way too high for this kind of place.

We were thankful to be moved to a quieter table. We had made a reservation and still had to wait. We were then placed right behind the hostess stand among several large parties and it was cramped.

Our server was kind enough to move us away from the hostess stand and then it was a much better experience.

We’ve dined there three Sundays in a row and have tried different things from the menu each time. We really really enjoy it. In fact we plan to make it a regular Sunday thing. We’ve even taken our adult children there to enjoy lunch with us. They loved it as well.
Great experience!

The sweet potato pancakes were absolutely delicious. Pancakes are hit or miss for me, and I am picky about my pancakes. They didn't need syrup on them, but i had syrup on the side to dip it into- yummy!!!

Everything was very good and I will definitely dine here again. The reason I rated with 4 stars overall rather than 5 is because my grits were not as warm as I would have liked them to be. I ordered the Southern Breakfast bowl (not sure of the exact name) it was good, I just wish the grits were warmer. It was a cool rainy morning, so warm grits with all the other toppings would have been the perfect bowl!

Great service, great food, as always......but unfortunately the tables were NOT 6 ft apart nor were there tables left open for spacing, and by the time we left at noon it was very crowded. I had expected better attention to COVID prevention until more people get vaccinated.
