    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

    After having set a reservation over a month early we were sat at a horable table and when we asked to move they ignored us. I will not be going here for a date again. They have great food but awful service.

    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.

    Great ambience, great food, great drinks! One of our favorites is the savory chicken and waffles made with breast, off menu item but your taste buds will thank you. They also have great happy hour drinks!We come to GR once a year for a conference and this stop has become a staple, the service is always awesome!

    We have been to Tupelo Honey a number of times, and we have reviewed it a number of times. Our assessment remains the same: it is a lively and cheerful restaurant with a distinctive (but not static) menu served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great for lunch, a mid afternoon break, or dinner.

    Always a delicious choice! The sangria is so yummy and I remember the fries being out of this world from previous visits. Sadly this time they fell flat - undercooked and just not special. Hopefully just an off night!

    We had told our server about an allergy before we ordered. Wife ended up having an allergic reaction when we got home. Then I had to head to the store close to mid night to go get what was needed for her to stop the spread. Definitely will not be returning.
