The food and service were mediocre at best. All of the food was served lukewarm and the grits were cold.

Tupelo Honey was delicious! It is always hard for me to find a Southern comfort style restaurant that has vegetarian options that aren't just creating a meal from sides or macaroni and cheese. I had their southern veg bowl and my husband had fried chicken and we both loved it!

Everything great except the mac n cheese, which was a key desire, that tasted “ fishy” to the diner in our group who ordered it.

We are sorry to hear the Mac n Cheese wasn't what you hoped for! Thank you for the honest feedback and we will be meeting with our kitchen team to discuss this.

We love the location near Union Station. Even mid-October we were able to eat outside and people watch. Our server was friendly and helpful with suggestions. The option to pick your own protein plus 2 sides was a great deal. Vegetables were perfectly cooked, still crunchy, not soggy. We will go back!

The honey dusted fried chicken didn't have a hint of honey flavor, the collards were sweeter tasting. The mac & cheese had so many bread crumbs I couldn't taste the mac or cheese. Only the shrimp & grits meal had by one of the four of us was enjoyed. Needless to say, the experience wasn't the best and we have no intention of returning.

The food is delicious, especially the fried chicken. We sat in a huge round booth, which was great; however, we noticed it was quite dirty. The edge around the booth had a layer of dust so thick you could pick it up. The service was also very disappointing - the waitress dropped off water, then someone asked for a drink, but she left before asking if anyone else if they wanted drinks, so we got one and had to wait to order more. She didn't come back often, so when my husband received his hamburger and it was incorrect and he needed condiments, it was 10 - 15 minutes before anyone came to check on us and his food was cold. We would have ordered additional drinks, but there wasn't an opportunity. The quality of the food, however, will keep us coming back and hope the service was just a one-off instance.

Great experience at Tupelo Honey with a couple girlfriends. I’m only sort of a fan of southern food but really enjoyed it!!! I got a beet salad with fried chicken because you can’t go to a southern place without getting a little something southern style. Also got a great sour beer. The whole experience and service was great. My friends were happy with their meals too! (Chopped salad and sandwich)

Ever since I spent a few months at Ft. Jackson SC, I’ve been hooked on shrimp and grits so I gave them a try here. They were delicious! I didn’t know if I would like the goat cheese but it wasn’t too strong and there was a bit of hot spice as well. I would definitely have again!

From Tennessee we were surprised at the true southern soul food. Amazing crispy fried chicken and okra! Big fluffy cat head biscuits. Great salads and all the sides from mashed taters to Mac and cheese brought us back for three lunches during our week stay in Colorado.
Located at the train station made it convenient for us and worth it. Sooo good!!

The tables and outside area were not very clean/attractive and the service took forever (they waited on other tables that arrived after we did) so we had to ask and then still waited a long time considering we arrived at 11:30 and the place was not busy at all. The food, however, was very good and the prices were reasonable in comparison to the ski town we live in. We will return and hope it was a fluke that the service took so long and hopefully they'll clean the tables better and spruce up the outside patio to make it more inviting.

Visiting Denver for the first time and found this wonderful brunch place. The hostess and our waitress were both cordial and delightful.
Ordering was easy since we just had to scan a QR code to access the menu.
Food came extremely fast and staggered well. We had the Biscuits for a cause, the Shoo Mercy Griddle and Traditional breakfast. Biscuits are huge, so definitely share and take the rest home. The fried chicken tasted yummy and fresh and did not have a thick batter on it. Heirloom grits had a nice hint of thyme. I definitely want to come back and try their other dishes.

Our waiter (whose name I forget, but he was from AL) was so sweet and the perfect balance of talkative and attentive. He also split our checks in the way we requested with no hesitation, which was appreciated. The food was excellent and the portion sizes were fairly standard. We went out on a limb and ordered a mixed drink that was $13, and though it was pretty good, that's the only thing I think was a little overpriced. Ambience was lovely, everything felt clean and orderly. I will definitely be back!
