    Went for dinner before a show. Always enjoy the food there! Chicken and waffles, shrimp po boy, smothered chicken, cat head biscuits are always outstanding! Had a great server last night too-Charlie was great and very personable! Can’t wait to go back!

    Tupelo Honey was such a fun experience! The lively music welcomed you into an atmosphere of fun and made it feel as though we were in a different city on vacation! Great cocktails and the fried chicken was delicious! Service was very attentive. Also, I’d definitely recommend the fried pickles for an appetizer!

    I'd been here with my husband over Labor Day weekend and ended up stopping in. GR on a work trip this past weekend and made a quick resi for my work team (5 of us total). Everyone said it was a great pick and we especially loved the biscuits for a cause.

    Delicious Labor Day brunch! Great patio, friendly service & amazing waffles! We ordered the Blueberry Waffles, Sriracha Honey Fried Chicken & Waffles and our pup enjoyed scrambled eggs & PB off their Bone Appetit Dog Menu. This was our favorite stop in downtown Grand Rapids!

    Food and drinks were good. Server was great. Meals took over 60 minutes and they comp’ed with no comment from us, which was cool of them. Loud AF, could hardly talk. Fun concept, probably not my ‘thing’ just too bright and too loud for me, but everyone should try it out for sure. You might love it!

    Made a reservation and arrived early. They asked us to wait and we had no problem. But, I believe they forgot about us when I asked the hostess about a table and she immediately seated us. Not sure we would have been seated if I didn’t ask. The service was slow, it was impossible to hear conversation at our table with the loud music, and the food was not hot (just tepid). The flavor was ok but nothing spectacular.

    The staff here was awesome! From hostess to our server, everyone seemed to enjoy being at work during a Sunday brunch. The food was great -- I got the Siracha Chicken and Waffles and it was fantastic. Everyone else in our group of 4 was also happy with what they ordered. Will definitely be back!

    Our dinner at Tupelo Honey Cafe was very good. Our server Rahid was very helpful with recommendations, especially the Spicy Cauliflower Bites starter. The Shrimp and Grits was very good as usual, and the Chicken Tortilla Soup was a hit. This location is a bit louder than the Asheville location, but the food and service were great.
