Food was very good, with substantial portions nicely presented. Staff was friendly, but not as attentive. Our water, for instance, was never refilled and toward the end of our meal everyone's drinks were gone and no offer to refill. Other than that, we enjoyed our visit.

We sat outside and it was very nice, and not too busy or loud with traffic. The food was awesome and our server was very friendly. We were able to get there in time for happy hour which was a great deal.

Our server was absolutely amazing! So kind and so helpful with recommendations! Also we had our 7 month old with us, and our server was so kind to her and even asked us if she would like a water.

Service was a bit off; we were a large but respectful crowd and were seated fairly promptly; however, waited over 10 minutes for a waiter to come by and only after I waved down a hostess. A simple, yet easy thing to do is to have your hostess staff recognize the delay and come over to acknowledge the delay. Having worked in the food service industry, it is the simple things that will set you apart and the staff was not up to the task. Although the food was fine, it surely was not a home run, nor unique by any stretch, a step above Applebees at best

We sat at a table that had water dripping right next to it. One of the waitresses fell. I felt like that table should have been out of commission for the day. My order came out wrong and by the time that they fixed the chicken mix up my waffles were now cold. It put a damper on my first experience at Tupelo Honey. We went to Grand Rapids just to have brunch here.

The food and service were fantastic. I liked that there were so many different options on the menu. We had a large group, so I think it would have been a good idea to leave a carafe of coffee at the table. It was a little noisier than I would have preferred. Overall a great experience and I will be back soon!

I’m a huge fan of chicken and waffles. And they have 3 different chicken and waffle options! I went with the Mac n cheese hot option. Best chicken and waffles I’ve had. Wow.

Service was excellent and the food was great. Authentic Southern Cuisine without trying too hard. Spicy but flavorful. Generous serving but not excessive. A nice beer selection as well.

Had dinner on a Sunday evening, first time at this location. Got in ahead of scheduled reservation, wait staff was attentive and stopped by the table often but not disturbing us. Appetizers came out quickly and dinner was spaced out perfectly after the appetizer. Food was hot and delicious. Love our whole experience here.

We had Lisa and Megan as our servers on the patio. The day was beautiful and we enjoyed the fresh air and ambiance. The brunch was delicious. When we visit Grand Rapids again we will definitely return and try more of the menu. Highly recommend :)
