    Went here for my friend’s birthday. Tupelo accommodated 7 people with ease and Abby (Abbie/Abi/Abbey/??) was one of the best servers I have ever had. She was so sweet and fun to talk to, and she helped us celebrate our friend :) 10/10!!

    We loved the food & beverages; however, I specifically highlighted & commented on OpenTable that we were celebrating our 12th anniversary. Nothing special was done which was disappointing.

    We visited Tupelo Honey for our anniversary. The fried chicken was dry but the biscuits were very tasty. It was so loud in the restaurant that it was hard to hear each other and our waitress. The music was very loud and it just killed the experience for us.

    Great menu and food, although my Old Skool Breakfast Bowl was a little on the lukewarm side, but still warm enough to enjoy. The poached eggs were perfect. It’s hard enough to even find poached eggs, let alone have them well prepared. Hubby’s Meatloaf Patty Melt was perfect temp. 25 minute wait between ordering and eating, but chalked that up to how hard it is for restaurants to find cooks these days. Server was friendly and attentive, beautiful space, and worth making the reservation so we could get right in.

    Decent food. Outdoor eating had a longer wait than inside, for a nice summer brunch. Music was too loud for conversations. Good restaurant visit though

    It was a lovely evening so we decided to eat outdoors which was very pleasant because the music outside was a less intrusive out there. The service was very good but I felt that the waitress was not a very good guide about some elements of the menu...particularly the brussels sprouts...dry and tasteless. The highlight were the biscuits...very good. Fried chicken was only average but good.

    Fried pickles, fried cauliflower, chicken & waffles, cocktail and agua fresca were great. Fried green tomato sandwich was a letdown. Tomato was ripe (well past green and no longer firm) and overall effect was like a mustardy/pickly grilled cheese vs. fried green tomato sandwich. The mac & cheese side lacked salt. Service was friendly, but they could’ve sold a couple additional beverages had they been more attentive. Ambience was cute and lively.

    Some of the best drinks you'll have (our favorites were the "bees knees" and the "peach dont kill my vibe"). This was my boyfriend and I first meal in Grand Rapids and it set the standards up high. Stefan was our sever and he was very friendly and attentive to us - you'd be lucky to have him as your server. A must get is the biscuits, but be careful cause they fill you up very quickly!

    Great as usual. Did get shorted a piece of chicken with my waffles tho. My daughter had one more piece than I had. No big deal tho cause I knew I was getting the pie which is my favorite part of dinner.

    I went here after seeing numerous posts on tiktok about it being amazing. The decor was great, very instagrammable. However, the food was quite mediocre. We started with the biscuits, which were large and flakey, had a great crust, and were generously buttery. The butter came room temp, and the blueberry jam was the star of the show. We then ordered the shrimp and grits, which were pretty but pleading for some salt. Classic Chicken and Waffles were next, and it look 30-40 minutes to come out. When it did, the waffles were soggy and were on par with a hotel breakfast. On top of that the chicken was battered with an offensive amount of thyme or rosemary making the chicken perfumey- would not recommend.
