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.

I go to Tupelo Honey a lot when I’m going to an Avs game. I haven’t been disappointed yet for their food or service.

Flew in from out of State for Thanksgiving and wanted a brunch with family before more traveling. I can see why this is my family’s favorite eatery downtown. I had the shrimp n grits. 2 others loved their super spicy Bloody Mary’s and sweet potato soup. Hope to go back for another meal.

Our server and food was amazing. Bought my grandma and mom for brunch and there picky eater and even they love the food. The lavender lemonade is wonderful! I recommend this place. The only inconvenience is the parking. But I was able to find parking across the way and it was under ground safe and cheap $10.

Well-prepared food, and we felt comfortable with the spacing between other diners and us. Service was a bit spotty, but it was a busy Sunday morning.

The main dishes were the star- shrimp and grits and chicken and waffles. And honestly the potato cracklins were stellar if you need to choose a side! I would not get desserts there though- the pecan pie was cold and the banana pudding just tasted like vanilla.

First time visiting Tupelo Honey. Was very happy with our meals. I had the fried chicken which was tasty and juicy. My husband had the pork shoulder dish. He said it was tender and flavorful. Our waitress was Angela. She was so pleasant and energetic. Her personality added to the great experience. We will definitely be coming back for another meal.

We had a great brunch! The food was tasty, and the server, Ferra(sp?), was attentive and friendly. The only complaint one of us had was that there was a scant amount of mac he was disappointed, but did say the fried chicken was some of the best he's had in Denver. We'll definitely be back!

Front door was locked / stuck which was unexpected and a bit off-putting. Bathroom doors were locked which felt unnecessary. And floors were slippery. The food was EXCELLENT which is why we will be back.

I ordered the 1/2 Chicken Sandwich with 2 sides (fries and soup). The Butternut Squash Bisque was delicious and the fries have a wonderful crunchy coating. The sandwich itself was nothing special (I would not order it again). However, the service was lousy and because of that, I will not be returning.

This restaurant is oddly designed. When you enter there is very cramped space to stand and wait for the hostess. The music is a little loud and the waitstaff seemed overwhelmed and discombobulated. We were seated and waited a long time for our server to take our order and had nearly finished our appetizers by the time our drinks arrived. The biscuits were delicious, the Brussel sprouts were mediocre and the friend green tomato was just ok. We won’t be back.

Came here for an anniversary brunch and was not in the slightest disappointed in any manner. The server was extremely polite and personable. And the food was wonderful as was the Bloody Mary I had. Going to make a point to come back for the dinner menu next time we’re in town.

Great place for delicious waffles and chicken + brunch. It's right across from Union Station, so you can take the rail if you plan to drink. Service was great, we got a lovely waitress and the place is not too loud so you can have a conversation without having to yell. Reasonably priced as well.

Came here on a whim after a Nuggets game and we were impressed! Our server Jamie was incredible! Friendly, upbeat, and helpful with food recommendations. We had the fried green tomatoes to start and they were yummy! For dinner I had the southern pecan salad and that vinaigrette was absolutely delicious! The hubs had the siracha chicken and it was just ok. Sides were Mac and cheese and the green beans, both great! The banana pudding was excellent, the pecan pie could have come out a little warmer, but that didn’t stop me from eating the whole slice 😳 Excited to go back and try other things, especially brunch! The restaurant itself is nice and welcoming. Perfect for date night or just a casual dinner.

Ok the biscuits were incredible. The chicken (we got a kid menu order and the chicken breast was so tough and overcooked it was inedible by my daughter or myself). Truly terrible. Funny enough, we were told the kids chicken meal came with a thigh not a breast but based on other service issues we did not bother to send it back. He seemed surprised we did not want a box for it when my kiddo left it untouched.

We ordered two different types of fried chicken BUT instead the waiter brought us two of the same type. We had had so many challenges with the waiter (who may have been new) we did not bother to send one back but I guess we tried "Honey Dusted" (not bad) and did not get to try the spicy one because our order was messed up there.

Waiter also did not know the menu and/or any of the beers to recommend when asked. He seemed put-off when we asked for suggestions around that.

We ordered fried green tomatoes but it was missed in the order and never showed up. It's fine because we were thankfully not charged for it.

Going forward, I recommend the biscuits to go. That's it

We were a party of 4 and not your typical fashion of people who come in. So we had to constantly flag our waiter down. After we would watch him serve the tables around us constantly
