Steps from historic Denver Union Station, we craft brunches, lunches and suppers that bring family and friends around the table and allow for conversations and cocktails to linger longer than usual. Always scratch-made, always responsibly-soured, and always Southern.

Reservations are strongly recommended, and we will accommodate walk-ins where possible.

Bad service - cold food and wrong dinners - grits had plastic in them and the server asked "oh what do you want me to do about it"

Ordered an appetizer which came after our dinner was over and they charged us for it !

Stayed fast, attentive server, food quality excellent. Only downside was when the sweet potatoe casserole was too spicy to eat, another option was not suggested. My friend was only given the one side and not two that came with the dinner.

The food was very good. However the service was poor. We waited almost an hour to get our drinks. The server seemed to not quite comprehend when we would ask her something. It seemed to go in one ear and out the other. When re-filling our water cups, she wasn't paying attention and poured water into one of our friends beer cup... Overall unimpressed with the service. Bummed because I have gone there before and never experienced service this terrible.

We were seated and after 20 minutes of waiting for a server to arrive, we left. When we were leaving the restaurant, we noticed at least 5 servers milling around the bar just hanging out.

First time visit to Denver and was extremely happy with Tupelo Honey. We had the Shoo Mercy Sweet Potato Pancakes and were ecstatic with the presentation, flavor, and just enough to fill the tummy for a productive day. A must try restaurant in Denver.

Fried green tomatoes were delicious as were the brussel sprouts, to start. The Oldskool Breakfast Bowl was delicious. I added fried chicken to the bowl and highly recommend it.

The Hostess went out of her way to accommodate our reservation in a timely manner. The bussing was beyond anything we'd ever see at a restaurant. They cleared tables at the speed of a super human, and kept up that momentum throughout our dinner and (I'm sure) into the late hours of the night. Our waitress was friendly, energetic, and attentive. The vegetarian/vegan bowls were unexpected, creative, and delicious! For those that like home cooked fried chicken, bisquits and waffles...everyone there seemed to be devouring their menu choices. With all of the restaurants in Denver, we enjoyed our experience so much that we booked lunch there the next day! Good Job Tupelo Honey!

Yikes! Unsure if this place was understaffed but the waitress was SUPER unfriendly, we didn't get our drinks for 20 minutes (no joke), and had ordered appetizers and got no silverware. We had to approach the bar and ask them for silverware since our waitress didn't come back.

When we got our food, the friend Green tomatoes were cold and the shrimp linguine tasted old :( the chicken was good though, as expected! We didn't get the chance to send anything back because the waitress never came back. We had to ask for ranch for the side of friends that came with the food and didn't get any buuuut surprise, got charged for it.

Overall really disappointed in the service of this restaurant. We spent well over $100 there and left feeling like we should have taken our business elsewhere.

Food was fantastic. Everyone in the party loved everything from appetizer (Fried Cauliflower/Fried Pickles), Entrees (Honey Dusted Fried Chicken / Cast Iron Pork) it was very flavorful and fresh. My only draw back is the service took a while and the servers weren’t very personable. But it didn’t dampen the experience too much. More than willing to come and try brunch or another of their fantastic variety of options.
