I had the Honey Dusted fried chicken and it was amazing. It was very moist and not at all greasy.
Everything was done well, I will be back. 👍

We really enjoyed our meal. The fried chicken and mashed potatoes were down home good. The chorizo meatloaf was super, too. Our server was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Nice location between Union Station and light rail and a short block from the Mall ride. A great discovery for us.

Tupelo honey is consistently great. The Bourbon Proper is one of the best whiskey cocktails I've had at a restaurant. Honey Dusted Chicken with collards on the side was amazing. Definitely my go to place for southern food in Downtown Denver.

First time there it was pretty fabulous. The waiter sorry I forgot his name but he he was wonderful. He let us take our time and he explained everything that we asked with a welcoming smile. As far as the food it was outstanding, everyone had a different dish and not one of us had a complaint only great things to say and we all agreed was just so tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant it will not disappoint and yes you’ll want to go back again. As we can’t wait to do.

We made a reservation but got to the restaurant early but they were able to seat us. It took a while for our waiter to come by. Once he did we ordered drinks and an appetizer and it took a while to get our drinks. The food was very good, but did not come out hot. The value of our meal and drinks was great and overall, our waiter was very friendly and personable. We plan to go back!

Food was fantastic as always. I took a friend here for her first time and she was blown away by the food, and she knows brunch! Our server was great even with how busy it was and how obnoxious one of our party was being. It was a great way to ring in the new year.

Food was really good for busy NYE dinner. Service was slow and out biscuits came out somewhat cold and slightly stale but the rest of the food made up for it. The shrimp and grits are amazing (I’m from AL!) and the fried green tomatoes are a must try!

Go there for the chicken... it was great... both fried and roasted chicken was lovely. The ribs were mediocre and would have been much better without the added sauce. Tested like warm catsup the was poured on the dry rubbed ribs. The food was warm, but nothing was served "hot off the skillet." It must have been sitting under heat lamps for some time. Once we alerted our server that we were being neglected on drinks and general attention, the service got better. The place was about 1/3 full at 730 on a Sunday night, so there was no reason for drinks or service to lag.

I had a good experience. Ordered sweet ice tea with free refills and it was really good.
My boyfriend and I got the fried chicken honey dusted, cast iron pork, and banana pudding for dessert. The fried chicken white meat was dry but the flavor was good. I liked the pork and banana pudding.

Our server was so lovely as we waited a half hour or more for a guest to arrive, and had water and coffee while waiting. She didn’t seem irritated, didn’t pressure us to order, and kept refilling as if we had ordered expensive champagne. Once we all ordered the food was prompt and absolutely delicious. We will be back and will recommend wildly.

The worst service I’ve ever had at a restaurant. The hostess was incredibly rude. We were seated at a high top instead of standard seating even though we’d specifically reserved standard seating. When I mentioned this I was snarkily told that we could wait another 45 minutes or take the high top. We had three separate servers before they finally settled on one, one of our sides never arrived, and no one checked on us after the food was delivered so waters were not refilled and we could not order additional drinks. Will never go back.

If you want to enjoy conversation with friends and family and not have to shout, this is not the place to go. The music is kept at a high volume and when I asked about why it had to be so loud, I was told that’s the way it is!

I love this restaurant! Love the cocktails, service, and the food especially! Everything I have ever had here is wonderful. My only suggestion, is when customers request at booking a special occasion like a birthday, and would like an intimate table for the group, seating them at the entrance by the door may not be the best table to celebrate. :) Got a little push back from the hostess when I said that wasn't ideal, and we would wait for a better table...otherwise, it's a perfect downtown spot, vibrant, energetic, and close to so much downtown!

$.75 martinis good, fried chicken great, not impressed with the BBQ ribs, fried pickles were extremely salty, fried green tomatoes were good.
Server was not very personable, very business like.
Music was way to loud, did turn it down on our request, but music choice dreadful for this group of seniors.

Came here with my husband and his parents to meet some friends. Service was great and the food was delicious. I got the white meat honey dusted chicken, my MIL got the sweet potato pancakes and chicken, FIL got the salmon and my husband got the shrimp and grits (can’t remember which one). All of our drinks were tasty and we will definitely come back for brunch next time we are in town! Also the valet at Born were super nice and very reasonable compared to paying to park and having to walk from somewhere else.

Everyone’s meal at my table seemed great, even mouthwatering on a couple, but mine was very clearly under a hot lamp and looked slow dried from that. It was a beef and was to be medium rare but the inside looked more purple from sitting under a light. I like eat the main last so that it could breathe and rest but it flopped when it came before me. Again everyone’s looked great, and would have enjoyed everyone’s if I had ordered it as well, it was really disappointing to see how mine was so sad looking.
