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.

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.

Waitress was bad and very slow. Bright lights came on and felt rushed
to leave before finishing our drinks.

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.

This place is incredible. We went for brunch and the food was probably some of the best I’ve ever had, the mimosas were delicious and unique, and the atmosphere was wonderful and adorable!

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.

Allison was beautiful kind wonderful server she was happy for us that we were about to sign papers on our first home my partner’s birthday she was just all around the best server I’ve ever had. And I can’t tell you that I spelled her name correctly but she had long blonde hair in a ponytail I was very professional and very friendly and was like talking to family

WOW!! This was my first time here. Southern style got me interested. The southern style food was excellent; such as Fried Chicken, collard greens, waffle and chicken, biscuits, etc. I have already told my friends about this place. The employees were excellent. They also gave it that "Southern Hospitality" environment. Great place!!

Tupelo Honey had a great ambiance throughout the restaurant. Our server in particular did not have good customer service, or a comforting feeling about her. The other staff I saw seemed to be very nice and please try to be around. The food, was not very consistent as the spicy chicken and Mac n cheese waffles, has 1 noodle in each waffle. Not was I was thinking. The chicken was under flavored but still enjoyed. Overall, if we didn’t have the waitress we did, I would give 4/5. Service is everything to an experience.

Yummy food. Great quality drinks. Cool ambiance. Lackluster but still polite service. I think after COVID, all restaurants are lucky to find waitresses but aren’t as trained.
