This place is delicious! Our server was very helpful and attentive but also knew when to leave us alone and let us eat. If you're nearby, you should eat here!

They are supposedly well known for their chicken. I wasn't impressed. Very dry. Seemed overcooked.

For appetizers, we had the green fried tomatoes and the fried pickles.
For dinner, we had the Rainbow Bowl, the Mountain Bowl, and the Chicken and Waffels. And they were all spectacular!!!

Totally recommend it!

We started with a side of biscuits and jam which were delicious. My boyfriend had a bloody mary and I had a large mimosa. For our meal we each got different versions of the chicken and waffles which were both amazing. We even ordered several items to go for a friend and our bill was still under $100. We were shocked. Definitely recommend for a true Southern Comfort style meal.

I had the pork shoulder and it was fabulous. The sriracha honey glaze added the perfect amount of spice. I tried the grits, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and green beans. They were all cooked well and delicious. Will be returning again.

Came for happy hour. After ordering drinks and then attempting to order happy hour food, the server then informed us that happy hour was canceled because their fried was down. They offered no substitutions for alternative happy hour options. Would have been nice to know this before we were seated and especially before ordering drinks so we could’ve made it to happy hour elsewhere.

I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant and sadly I was disappointed. I had been staring at pictures of food on line all week trying to figure out what I was going to order, everything looked so good. I have a thing about wanting my food to be hot when it comes out but my shrimp and grits came out cold. I really couldn't get past a few bites and I don't like sending food back especially when it's busy so I just sat and watched my partner eat his meal. Service was pretty lackluster, I don't like feeling like I am putting someone out for asking for more water or for the biscuits that we ordered at the very beginning. It just wasn't the experience I was hoping for. It might have been just an off day and I understand that that could happen. I hope someday to give it another try.

Neither the host or the server noticed when we arrived for our reservation. We waited at the front for nearly
10 minutes before being noticed and then waited at our table for 5 minutes before being noticed. The meal was not fresh nor were the portions fair for the price.

This place is great! I felt bad for the waiter because she had a lot of tables and ended up messing up or forgetting some of our stuff. I don’t feel it’s her fault though because due to covid restrictions I’m sure that’s why there were less waiters. She was super nice though even though she was stressed running around everywhere. Overall, loved my experience here!

Great place to have happy hour, but not for a dinner experience. Food was alright, biscuits were awful for a southern cuisine. Host or busboy guy, whatever he is did not seem welcoming. Our server was nice but seem more like an order taker, she got weeded so fast and couldn't keep up.

I just randomly picked this restaurant off open table for a date night with my man. He is usually very picky his first bite he was in love. I feel it was also very tasty, and reasonably priced. Our server Jamie was absolutely amazing as well. Would recommend this place.

The staff was nice, although it seemed like no one noticed that we were at the host stand for probably 5-7 minutes, along with another couple. The food was tasty but the portions were tiny and not necessarily worth the price. Cute spot, probably better for drinks, but if you’re hungry, it’s probably not a good choice.

I had the veggie plate - two helpings of Brussels sprouts (burnt many layers down), one helping of Mac ‘n cheese (dried from being under a heating lamp) and one helping of green beans (pretty good).

Tupelo Honey has some very tasty treats. The food is comforting and cravable. The service at the Denver location does have something to improve upon. From the hostess being unwelcoming and dismissive to the servicers acting in a similar manner, the restaurant fails to convey Southern charm or hospitality. The experience was okay at best.

Service was great and very attentive !! Food was pretty good, given the limitations of dietary needs. It would be nice to have a vegetarian or gluten free menu written or denote what can be modified so the customer doesn’t fall in love with foods that can’t eat. But what was available for the modifications were good- just took a lot of work to figure out what could be modified. They do carry Udis for sandwiches etc.. which is nice. The drink menu is always creative and lots of options. My southern friend was the test and loved his fried chicken and grits !

The service and staff was very friendly and we got seated in a descent amount of time. The service at the table was a little slower than most restaurants but nothing outrageous. I had ordered a mini pudding to go and was quite disappointed at the serving size. The amount was literally just two tablespoons, really $4 for one bit of pudding. Also of course being downtown you had to pay an arm and a leg for parking but that is to be expected based on the location.

Now the good. The chicken and biscuits were delicious and cooked just right. The brunch drinks were also very tasty. We would definitely come back again for a girls brunch.
