Visiting from out of town and liked the menu options for this spot. The menu was much reduced due to COVID which is understandable. The food was well prepared but bland. The wine selections were awful. For someone who doesn't drink beer, I wouldn't frequent this place.

Lovely place located right on the plaza downtown. Great southern appetizer especially the biscuits and green fried tomatoes with grits. Delicious entrees with freshnroot veggies. It is highly recommended.

Ordered Shrimp and Grits. For the $18.95 price the portion was very small. Had ordered this same item in the past in which the portion was almost 2x the size for the same price. We asked our server if this was a lunch portion and he said no.

Went for brunch on New Years Day. I had the breakfast bowl-my hubby had the fried chicken sandwich. Both were great, perfectly cooked. The food came out really fast. Service was mediocre- not super friendly but still a good experience.

Awesome food and atmosphere. Only downside is the parking but the garage was free after 6:00.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Tupelo Honey. The service was incredible, the food was delicious, and the restaurant was clean, extremely well kept up after each table left and very inviting. We would absolutely recommend you stop in. Don't forget to order some of their incredible biscuits! The proceeds go into a fund that helps their employees in need!
