Our waiter, Jaime, was the absolute best. We came in with four children and he was able to meet the needs of two adults and keep the girls entertained and fed.
He was kind, generous, and even made our salad "grow"! The food was excellent. We are sad that indoor dining in Denver is on hold. I look forward to returning and I hope that Jaimie is there!

Came here while on vacation for dinner on a Saturday night and let me start by saying HOLY CRAP! From the second we stepped in it was very welcoming. The food was so good we ended up making a lunch reservation for the next day, while we were eating! Thanks Jennie, our server, for making it a super great experience!

Southern hospitality at its worst. I was very excited about trying this restaurant. Made my reservation a week in advance. Being raised in the south I was excited to get in for some delicious southern cooking. Was disappointed from the moment we walked in the door. After being sat 45 minutes after our 8:15 reservation my date and I were on the fence but still looking forward to our dinner. The hostess promised a couple of free appetizers on the house which would make up for the late seating. Expecting the pace to change, our disappointment only increased. The waiter took ages to get to our table. We requested only water and even that seemed to exhaust our patience. We placed our food order and made sure to include the couple of appetizers that the hostess had offered. The appetizers arrive. We sat there blankly for minutes before our server came back and realized we didn’t have plates or silverware. I admit that this sounds like I may be reacting a little harsh but this review doesn’t have a happy ending. My date and I both ordered honey fried chicken. The staple dish at Tupelo Honey. This chicken qualified as the worst part of our experience which is saying A LOT because the side of brussel sprouts we ordered were horrid in taste. The chicken was awful. I need to make sure to mention that halfway through our meal the hostess actually began vacuuming the inside of the restaurant directly behind our table. It was loud. This was the icing on the cake. We ate what we could and then waited quite some time before anyone came back to check on us. Dessert was still in question but my date made the executive decision to get the check out of fear of having to sit in this restaurant for another hour. When the check arrived I realized quickly that the “free” appetizers we were promised for our extensive wait were actually not free whatsoever. I waited around to ask about the error but to my surprise our waiter was no where in sight. I cut my losses and we left. Waste of time.

Tupelo Honey was delicious! It is always hard for me to find a Southern comfort style restaurant that has vegetarian options that aren't just creating a meal from sides or macaroni and cheese. I had their southern veg bowl and my husband had fried chicken and we both loved it!

We came in for brunch on my nieces 5th birthday. (she wanted to have a “ladies day”) First, our original reservations were for a patio table but typical Colorado weather had other ideas. I called Tupelo in a panic to find they had already been able to accommodate us inside.

Secondly, Tupelo went out of the way to make my niece feel special. They greeted her specifically when we arrived and our server made a big deal about celebrating her. She was absolutely over the moon. Thank you for making it so special for us all.

We love the location near Union Station. Even mid-October we were able to eat outside and people watch. Our server was friendly and helpful with suggestions. The option to pick your own protein plus 2 sides was a great deal. Vegetables were perfectly cooked, still crunchy, not soggy. We will go back!

The honey dusted fried chicken didn't have a hint of honey flavor, the collards were sweeter tasting. The mac & cheese had so many bread crumbs I couldn't taste the mac or cheese. Only the shrimp & grits meal had by one of the four of us was enjoyed. Needless to say, the experience wasn't the best and we have no intention of returning.

The food is delicious, especially the fried chicken. We sat in a huge round booth, which was great; however, we noticed it was quite dirty. The edge around the booth had a layer of dust so thick you could pick it up. The service was also very disappointing - the waitress dropped off water, then someone asked for a drink, but she left before asking if anyone else if they wanted drinks, so we got one and had to wait to order more. She didn't come back often, so when my husband received his hamburger and it was incorrect and he needed condiments, it was 10 - 15 minutes before anyone came to check on us and his food was cold. We would have ordered additional drinks, but there wasn't an opportunity. The quality of the food, however, will keep us coming back and hope the service was just a one-off instance.

Great experience at Tupelo Honey with a couple girlfriends. I’m only sort of a fan of southern food but really enjoyed it!!! I got a beet salad with fried chicken because you can’t go to a southern place without getting a little something southern style. Also got a great sour beer. The whole experience and service was great. My friends were happy with their meals too! (Chopped salad and sandwich)

Ever since I spent a few months at Ft. Jackson SC, I’ve been hooked on shrimp and grits so I gave them a try here. They were delicious! I didn’t know if I would like the goat cheese but it wasn’t too strong and there was a bit of hot spice as well. I would definitely have again!
