    Good atmosphere. Food was average. Wish martini was a little more full. They were out of Tito’s, so had Grey Goose. Ordered “dirty,” tasted like straight vodka and wasn’t cold.

    Got dark meat fried chicken. One thigh, 2 legs that were very small. One side and no bread. Usually I take half a meal home for leftovers but ate the whole thing. Tasted good though.

    Everything was 5 star except the hostess at the door. I had made reservations through open table days ahead of time- she took us to a 4 top table but we requested one of the booths (there were 2-3 empty booths). I always ask for a seat that is padded because I have a fractured vertebra which is extremely aggravated by wooden back chairs. The hostess became irritated and said the booths were reserved for people with reservations! When our other guests arrived and asked if we were there, the hostess told them there was no one there by that name! Sad.

    Collard greens way too salty. Braised pork with volcanically hot sriracha was inedibly too spicy (menu said nothing about being HOT). Grits were very lumpy. Noise level was very loud. Need to address with acoustic panels or distancing tables. Service was good.

    We really enjoyed the unique experience that is Tupelo Honey. The cocktails and food were both amazing. Very high-quality ingredients, way too much to eat and such a great balance between heat salt and fat. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The only negatives that I could perceive were that the atmosphere is somewhat cafeteria-like, very noisy and somewhat difficult for servers to get through tables placed close together. And although being a later reservation (8:30) I’m not a big fan of the table/chairs moving, vacuuming and cleaning happening while there are still customers dining.

    Food and service was excellent. The fact that they closed down the restaurant at 8:22 on a Thurs night was annoying. The restaurant says it closes at 9, but bar closed at 8:22 and felt like we were rushed out

    Fish was like small fish sticks, with overly cooked coating. Biscuit was amazing, but by the time I asked for butter, it was cold. 2 at our table enjoyed the chicken with waffles, the siracha was overly hot. Would try again, and go with the chicken.

    Food was just not good. Fried chicken pieces are too small and wereovercooked to the point that the drumstick and wing had no meat left. Waiter and manager provided excellent customer service and comped the chicken even though we asked them not to do so. But this review was about the food.
