    Our only complaint is that the restaurant accepts reservations until 9pm only to stop taking orders for food/drinks at 9:30 which is ridiculous, which is within half hour.

    It was my wife’s birthday, and we had never been there before. It was very busy, considering it was a Tuesday night, so I am glad we had a reservation for our group of five. Food and service were great, we will definitely be back again.

    Loved the freshly baked biscuits with butter and blueberry compote, really enjoyed the fried green tomatoes with cheesy grits, and the fried chicken was great, very tasty. My husband's chicken BLT was rather dry and the green beans were way too peppery, but our server was great and the things I've mentioned above were really good, so we will certainly try to dine there again sometime when we're in Grand Rapids.

    I was pleased to find a place that could not only accommodate our family of eight, but also had enough variety to appeal to everyone in our party from age nine to 85. We were seated in the back away from other tables, which was preferred as we’re fully in flu/cold season with new COVID variants. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was tasty, but not anything I would come back for. I ordered their ‘famous’ chicken and waffle since it’s their specialty. My spicy fried chicken was very good, but the waffle beneath it was a bit bland and not crispy enough. My morning cocktail was a peach vodka concoction that was delicious! The universal crowd pleaser was the biscuit. Overall, no one left unsatisfied.

    Brunch with my young adult niece before the ballet. Slow response when we sat down. We’re ready to order when they came to get our drink order. Fast delivery of meal. Food was excellent. Had the Mac and cheese waffles/chicken and the country fried chicken and waffles with eggs. Outstanding meal. Large portion too. Ordered banana pudding to go. Delicious. Will go again.

    Tupelo Honey offers an appealing variety of Southern style main dishes, with sides and beverages to complement the meal. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Service is quick, and attentive. We noticed couples, groups of friends, and families with children among the other patrons. The ambience is invitingly casual.

    The food is terrific and consistent - the service staff are kind, considerate and hard working. The noise level was quite high for "after the lunch rush" making it difficult to chat with our party. Plan ahead for parking especially if you have a person in your parking with handicap needs, as no handicap spots are nearby.
