Service was slow, and server was not friendly. We got sat before the tables around us, yet got our drinks and food last. Im assuming she sterotyped us from the beginning. Managers were everywhere but helping their struggling staff. Never touched a table or walked through the dining room. Food was bland and over priced for what it was. It was loud and uninviting. Had to try but will not be going back.

Nice decor, excellent cocktails. Cauliflower taco was excellent! Chicken was dry and over powered by sauce. Probably will not be back

Very noisy, hard to hear. Overpriced too large salads. Ordered salmon with it, skimpy little piece.

The 4 of us were a little disappointed. Waited 20 minutes for our drinks to come. And then my food came out 15 minutes before the rest of the party. After we told the server that I was waiting on the mashed potatoes she apologized and said she can get us 10% off for our troubles. When the bill came, no discount. I didn’t care about that, but don’t offer one and then not follow through.

Buttermilk Chicken was very moist; sweet & spicy chicken had a delicious "bite" and we loved the brussel sprouts too. I can't wait for my next visit. Ask for Skyler for your server.

Excellent experience at Tupelo Honey. Gorgeous interior, service was prompt/friendly and the food was delicious! I felt safe and as socially distanced as I could be, pandemic-wise. I will return for both in person dining and takeout in the future.

I believe I was served chicken that was re- heated. The potatoes were clearly old
The food was cold.
I was extremely disappointed

Had a reservation and was seated immediately.
Apple Cider Mimosas were fantastic but pricey.
On the table was catfish, fried chicken, grits, greens, mac & cheese (tiny portion size), potatoes, banana pudding. Everything was superb. Cannot wait to go back and try more!

We were sat right next to the door which brought an extremely cold breeze into the restaurant. We asked to be moved and was told we couldn’t because the seat and tables had already had been assigned for different reservations. The system seemed a little confusing where customers couldn’t be accommodated but it didn’t stop the food from being great.

Service from all staff was fantastic. The Communication they provide is like no other restaurant, always informing you. Party of 6 and we tried 4 different meals. Shared several and all were tasty. Winner was fried chicken and meatloaf. Banana pudding to end of the meal.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to the next person. I was sending pictures and totally amazed with the food. I will for sure be going back. The food came out hot. It was so flavorful, and did not disappoint at all.

Service could have been better. We waited a while for our drinks, then straws and also for refills.

We also were seated in a weird are. Kinda right in the middle of the entrance and walk way. Several time people bumped our arms walking by.

Overall, it was a well experience and food was exceptional.

The shrimp and grits were awesome! The cauliflower tacos were so good too. Honey chicken was good but maybe a bit over cooked. Staff was also outstanding. Use Opentable for a reservation as many people were turned away. Glad we did!

The food was ok but not great. Noise level was too loud for our group. Drinks were small. I prefer a good pour and charge me accordingly.

The items have very little seasoning or flavor. Fried items are plated in sauces . No two ways around that.

Drinks were good but out of my two visits, we tried 9 items and only 1 was great (fried pickles) and 1 was decent (biscuits).

Chicken batter not flavorful AT ALL, chicken was dry and hard on the INSIDE (overcooked, no juiciness to speak of) and the fried green tomatoes weren't cooked through, panko batter didn't cling to tomato (means cook time is off or application was poor) - either way those were a HUGE miss for this GR girl by way of Yazoo Mississippi. I tried twice in less than a week with great hopes but I won't be back. Sorry Chef.
