Southern
Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home. 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.

Great food, enjoyed the Rainbow Bowl, Fried Green Tomatoes, Chicken and Waffles with Gravy and topped it off with Banana Pudding! We waddled away satisfied and looking forward to our next visit!

We're midwesterners so southern is a rare treat. Perfectly succulent shrimp in a spicy sausage flavored sauce over creamy grits was just what I needed. The crispy cauliflower hit the flavor burst spot we were craving. The classic bloody mary is practically a food course and my husbands mahii taco was perfectly grilled not fried. A trip to Louisiana while we were in Denver, we loved it!

We came for breakfast and boy did Tupelo Honey not disappoint. We had 8 ladies, most of whom had dietary restrictions, some quite severe, and the waiter did not bat an eyelash. He was awesome, confirmed every food allergy and restriction, and got every order spot on! We ordered a lot of food and every dish was incredible. Special shout out to the potato cracklings and the fried green tomatoes - but truly everything was awesome!

Our server was delightful. The peach slaw was good.

Otherwise a totally disappointing experience. Food was bland, and the famous chicken was dry. They were out of their signature dessert, and the cocktails were weak. Even the restroom needed attention with no toilet paper by 8 pm. Did not live up to its marketing in any way.

Also they did nothing to acknowledge the special occasion I had included in the reservation.

So their speciality is fried chicken. Let’s start with they use poor quality scrawny chickens, over cook them until they are totally dry and tasteless. Served with reheated Luke warm Mac & Cheese. Won’t be back.

We were excited to try Tupelo Honey out and were really looking forward to it. Made a same-day reservation on OpenTable with ease. Hostess greeted us promptly and politely and it is a beautiful space, but it went downhill from there. No matter how good the ambiance or food is, service makes the overall impression and in this case, it was lacking. Our waitress took more than 7 minutes to greet us, and by that I mean she asked if we were ready to order - no hello, no asking for drinks or questions about the menu. After that we saw her one other time, to deliver the bill.
Food was pretty good, but this visit left a bad taste in our mouths. Disappointed.

It was our first time dinning here and everything was amazing! Going to a new place can be a little stressful and ordering can be intimidating. However, our server was Jamie and he was fabulous! He made recommendations from drinks, apps, entrees, and dessert. Jamie was charming, funny, and very attentive but not overly intrusive. We will definitely go back and take our family. My husband hates to change his routine and try new places that can seem trendy. Jamie won him over and he has already told several people about this place in the last 24hrs.

Waiter tried to convince me that my order was correct after I brought it to his attention. When the bill came, it showed that what I had wasn't what I ordered. What I had was OK so I didn't bother to debate it. Outside of that, it was an OK place.

I cannot comment on the food because we were never actually served. We were seated right away and then were never greeted. No one ever came to our table (it was not busy at all). We finally walked out after 20 minutes.

It’s been a while since I last visited this location and it seems it’s gone a bit downhill. Not sure if that’s due to lack of staff from covid but our poor waiter had a huge area and no bus boy or staff to help him clean tables in between guests or help with food delivery. He was great though however the food was underwhelming. Most everything we ordered tasted bland and under seasoned which was not my lady experience. Hopefully the kitchen and staff can turn it around soon

They were a bit confused about the reservation. We had a baby in a carrier with us and it seemed to throw them off a bit. It was quite peculiar. The food was good, but I do not know if we will return because of the way we were treated. It was also like they had never seen Black people before. You would think a restaurant that serves "southern cuisine" would be more welcoming and create a better atmosphere for diverse communities.
