It was good and some of it really hit the spot, but having lived in the south the food really didn't come close to being near as good as some other 'southern' food options around.
We made it in time for Happy Hour - which lasts until 6p everyday of the week and provides some solid values. Fried green tomatoes and the fried pickles were great.
Shrimp and grits were good, but did not live up to some of the better reviews.
Fried chicken was solid.
Mac and Cheese fried bites - pretty good.
Collard greens with bacon - yum if you like such.
Good service, good ambience, great location. The food was just not near as good as we were hoping and craving.

We never ate there. Had a 7pm reservation. We were a couple minutes late and I asked the hostess if it would be a long wait, and she said no, they were just cleaning off a few tables and we'd be seated shortly. 20 minutes later we walked out to find another restaurant, after standing around twiddling our thumbs and no further communication from the hostess. We were a little sketchy on the southern fare menu, which also contributed to our decision to abort. So ignore our rating on the food, we have no idea. Good news is that I'm trying to lose a few, and not such a bad thing to miss a meal (which we ended up doing). Oh well. Reservations for Ocean Prime next weekend - I'm sure that will be a different story.

We didn't receive our appetizers that we ordered. The shrimp and grits were delicious but the rest of the food was average. The food came out really late. I think they were having trouble in the kitchen. Not the experience we were anticipating.

Carter was awesome in every way. Very personable and made great suggestions. Food was good. I like that I could taste that the chicken has been bribed. Initially Couldn’t really decide what to get. Husband had French toast. Great thick cuts. But I can say that I had some of the best coffee I’ve had in a while. Fresh and not burned.

Thanks for a great experience!

It was a nice change of pace, but I was really looking for great Southern food. We paid over $77 for fried chicken and pork roast. Not to insult your chef but my mom's fried chicken and pork roast is much, much, better. She grew up in the South and I know good Southern food; i.e., collard greens, black-eyed peas, corn bread, friend/boiled okra, etc. Your fried green tomatoes were on par though, and the pecan pie was great.

Tupelo is our go to for any special occasion or just when we want to have a great meal and are up to splurging a bit! The food is ALWAYS very good, not cheap but not outrageous and definitely worth every penny. Service is good and ambiance nice, they always take good care of us, most difficult part (parking a bit of an effort) is which great meal to order!!!!

We had a reservation, but part of our party was running late due to bad weather. So, I'll give them that excuse to some degree. We made the hostess aware of our situation and she was very accommodating. Once our complete party was there, we were seated. While the wait staff was very nice, they were incredibly slow. She was slow to even come to our table at the beginning. Then, slow to take our order and drink order. Three of the 4 plates were delivered together. I understand that we were late for our reservation, but I don't think that completely excuses the bad service.

This is one of my go-to restaurants for southern comfort food. They really do a lot to make sure their food is high quality. Their drinks are on the high side though, so be aware of that. I would suggest their fried green tomatoes, as they are worth writing home about. Plus, they have their own honey which is really great.

My chicken arrived cold. The host who greeted me did not say anything to me, like “hi welcome”. Or even “enjoy your meal. “.

The Brussels Sprouts were deep fried. At least tell me that. Don’t make that a surprise. Overall, fair.

We dined on a Saturday night. Both the hostess and server acknowledged my date's birthday, thank you for that. We were early for our reservation so we sat at the bar and had a drink. We had the BBQ chicken eggrolls, trout (I wanted a bit more creole flavor, good side salad and cauliflower/carrots) and catfish (yummy grits!). They bought us a dessert, brown butter pecan pie. We liked all the food! Great variety of dishes, especially appetizers, on the menu. We really want to go for brunch one of these days!
