This restaurant is close proximity to work so it was perfect for our team. The cost is reasonable and the portions are "lunch" perfect. The noise level was a little high. We had to repeat ourselves so that all could hear. Overall, great experience.

A first timer with 3 guests. Very popular place with SRO. We did have reservations with Open Table. Service was prompt, was given time to look over menu, ordered and food was brought in an acceptable amount of time. Food was well prepared, well seasoned and large portions. It was an enjoyable experience for all customers.

Our group of 4 wouldn't go back. The fried chicken came out NOT hot, and the flavor was super bland. We ordered the bee dust chicken. It was pretty expensive, considering the miniscule pieces. Oh and the cracklin potatoes were half raw, and the serving was way too small. Also, our waiter, Till, wouldn't stop talking to us. I ordered 2 black pepper bloody mary's and they were incredible small and lackluster. Plus, hardly any ice. We did, however, manage to eke out a nice tip, but none of us were at all thrilled. D
efinitely would not go back, plus parking cost $10.

We love southern style cooking and was really looking forward to this experience. Some of the food was great and some very disappointing. They are "known" for their biscuits and chicken which was very disappointing. The chicken dip was pretty good. My husband's catfish was good though not southern fried. The drinks were ok. Our waitress was amazing even though we thought she should have comped the awful biscuits and put in the largest order of chicken because I failed to specify. I thought she should have asked. There was quite a difference in price. But, regardless she was an exceptional waitress. We would not recommend or return. The patrons near us
were extremely loud and invasive on our evening. Overall, not the worse place we've been, but not the best either.

The only negative I experienced was waiting for a hostess. I had a reservation for lunch time and waited at least ten minutes before a hostess appeared. Everything else was great, I took some colleagues out for lunch and everyone enjoyed the food. Our waiter was great, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food is always good, I love the sweet and spicy chicken options. The biscuits are fantastic as well.

Our party of four was generally favorably impressed with Tupelo Honey, but our visit was not without a couple of “issues.” Fortunately, the service was not one of them. Other reviewers have noted that it tends to be slow. We did not find this to be the case. The food arrived from the kitchen in due time after ordering, and our server did her job expertly. She was attentive, helpful, efficient, and quite personable. Big props there because servers have a hard job, and she did hers very well. We also have no issues with the fried chicken, which was my main reason for having dinner at TH. My traditional half bird was well prepared and delicious: moist without being greasy. I also heard no complaint from the person who ordered the spicier version. “Spicy but in a good way,” was his reaction. That description also applied to the catfish ordered by the third member of our party. The fourth found her trout “good but a little oily, - a B+.” I also noted a bit too much oil on her plate. So that would be issue #1. #2 is a bit more serious since it involves the unpleasant discovery of a bad Brussels sprout once consumed. -Completely inedible but perhaps an anomaly. Easy for me to be generous, however, since I did not encounter it. Our take-away? Stick with the chicken and skip the sprouts. Will there be a return visit? Quite possibly. The chicken and the service warrant it. I should also note that the drinks were deemed to be excellent, a fact which may cover a multitude of sins.

I enjoyed my time overall and this was my first time for brunch but I’ve been four times previously for dinner. This was the first time that everything took a while to get going. I felt like they were possibly short staffed or something but then it took a while to order and then a longer wait to get our actual food. Reservation at 1pm and getting our food close to 2pm just seems like a while but i enjoyed what i ordered.

What a fun place to take out of town guests! The food was delicious as were the drinks and was well priced. Being so close to Union Station, we were able to walk around the area with entertainment every way we looked. The parking garages were easily available and not overly priced. Be sure and order the biscuits, even if it’s just to split as an appetizer. Delicious!!!!!

The waiter was the make or break for me on this one. I would like to try Tupelo again but with the price compared to the service we got it may be a while before I try it out again. When we didn't order alcohol the waiter's demeanor changed and I left feeling disappointed in the experience. It was for an anniversary too so that bummed me out a bit. He made some comments too that I felt weren't necessary. I think he thought he was funny but he made me feel a little uncomfortable.

Whilel this is a fun happening place and I know it from Asheville where we loved it, it was not up to par this tonight. I have been to the Denver location before and it was quite good. However this night my ribs were tried out and my husband's filet mignon with should have been medium was on the raw side and just didn't smell fresh. I would try it again but I really was disappointed.

My first visit to Tupelo Honey,I went with High Expectations and they exceeded then.
I had signed up for the Social Club (their loyalty club) and took Advantage of their BOGO Dinner entree offer. Deanna our server was friendly attentive and made our every request happen! I ordered a Mint Julip, it was made just perfectly. Next we ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes for our appetizer, they were excellent! I ordered the Bourbon Peppercorn Meatloaf with Yukon Mash Potatoes and Basil and Butter Green beans which was delicious! My friend ordered the Low Country Catfish with Yukon Mash Potatoes and Basil and Butter Green Beans, which he enjoyed. It was my Birthday Dinner and a Free Dessert of my choice was offered. We ordered the Mini Mason Jars Sampler,Which included banana pudding; peanut butter mousse hummingbird cake with cream cheese frosting and spiced pecans; atlantic beach lemon custard with buttery saltine crumble and whipped cream.
The Service and Food was excellent and the Food was reasonably priced. You even get a Free logo Pint
glass to take home, which is another welcome gift if you sign up for their E Club.
Located on the platform at Union Station, next to track 7. I highly recommend especially for special occasion meals!

Good is always great. Atmosphere is upscale but comfortable and not pretentious. Service can be great or terrible and was very, very slow this visit with almost no attention paid to our table, drinks that were often empty, and about 30 minutes spent just trying to pay the bill. A great place to go if you're not in a hurry.

Quite a disappointing experience. The service was horrible while we dined there for lunch, the beer was incorrect, the lunch special was sparse and we spent more time waiting for service than actually eating. The only redeeming factor of this visit was the sweet tea chicken and Brussel sprouts, although there was part of the stem in the served dish that was inedible and rock hard. We ordered a beer on nitro, and the beer served was definitely not. We even compared it to other photos of the same beer on UnTappd to make sure it wasn't just us, but the beer was clearly different, missing the creaminess and the foam head. We had to ask for more dressing on the "mixed greens" -- which was maybe all of 15 pieces of greens in a small plate. The half side we chose was French fries, and it came with less fries than a typical "small" order. Needless to say, I will not be highly recommending this place. There's other spots with great chicken and awesome service.
