It was our second time to Tupelo and it did not disappoint. The biscuits are killer so we had to have those again and we tried something new by each getting one of the breakfast bowls which were both delicious and perfectly seasoned. Jamie is by far the best server that I've had it any restaurant in quite some time. It's always nice when your server can make you smile that we will absolutely be back

I was excited to try Tupelo Honey, a chain that tries to upscale traditional southern comfort food. They've definitely succeeded at an upscale atmosphere (with prices to match), but I'm not sure it warrants the premium prices they charge for their food.

The evening started off strong. Not only do they have a good southern-inspired cocktail program, but they also have good local beers and ciders. Major props for having Glider Cider available. We ordered biscuits and friend green tomatoes to start. I'm used to simpler fried green tomatoes when eating in southern kitchens, and these tasted a touch too breaded. The biscuits were giant, but unless piping hot, turned heavy quickly. The blueberry compote and butter was standout.

The main meal was good, not great. My party sampled shrimp and grits, fried chicken sandwich and the meatloaf. It was good but not exceptional. Having tried these dishes elsewhere, they're obviously comfort staples. It's hard to improve on classics, and while presented beautifully, they certainly didn't justify the price.

Don't think twice about ordering the dessert flight. It's the perfect size for a small group to sample. Otherwise, go big and order the lemon custard. I was worried it would taste too tangy, like many lemon curds, but this was perfect.

Tupelo Honey does a great job at atmosphere and desserts. I'd go for after dinner drinks and dessert.

The proximity to Union Station makes Tupelo Honey a perfect place to meet friends and family. The menu selections are interesting and the upscale atmosphere is inviting. The food was very good, although the steak was very rare even though the request was made for "medium rare." And the roasted chicken with jalapenos was tasty but dry. There were 6 of us, and the other 4 meals were perfect. Definitely a great choice for our Mothers' Day celebration with family (including kids).

We made reservations for 12:15pm. for my Birthday lunch. We arrived a few minutes early and we were seated. End of story.

No one came to wait on us. After 15 minutes of waiting and noticing that many other people were arriving, being seated, and served, I let the hostess know that no one had came to wait on us. She said she would send over Jeff because he was our waiter. We waited about 7 -8 more minutes. He never came to our table.

Worst customer service experience I have had at Tupelo Honey-Lodo.

Tupelo Honey has great froze, from there its pretty much all downhill. Overpriced menu for the quality of the food, they have one waiter that is really good the rest of the wait staff leaves a lot to be desired. I was pretty sure my waitress last Sunday was on something strong. This is the second time I had a reservation and after arriving stand at the front and watch tables of equal size that were just walk ins be seated long before me, this time we stood and watched a table sit dirty for 20 minutes ( apparently this was my table for reservation) After inquiring why walk ins that were tables of 3 and 4 were being seated before us with a reservation we were rudely informed that our table was dirty, 20 minutes AFTER our reservation time I asked the hostess if they could clean the table and stop waiting on the busser to do it, and they very vocally and rudely complied, so we got seated at a half clean table and our waitress was even worse, another 20 minutes in we had drinks and appetizers after reminding the waitress we had ordered coffee 15 minutes prior. Honestly this restaurant is a good place to visit if you are staying at a hotel within a block, other than that there are too many other good restaurants in Denver to waste time or effort to get here, they also have no valet parking and no where to park, so this is really made for the traveler who wouldn't go back...( actually their service model mimics that they dont want you back anyways)...

Once we arrived the ambiance and service were fantastic. We had dinner at 5 (slightly earlier than your normal crowd) so it was very quiet but the staff and service were excellent!
