    All was fantastic! We chose to sit outdoors so there was little to no noise early on but as the city woke up, the street noise increased some. Not a big deal and was expected. The waffles with blueberry compote we're AMAZING! Avocado toast with siracha honey drizzle, are college child approved. Staff was fantastic and knowledgeable. Definately a must!

    We had fantastic service here during our trip to Knoxville! Our server was very friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious. The Bless Your Heart Mimosa was a huge highlight! The blood orange & lime flavor combination was the perfect mix of sour, sweet, and bitter. Can’t wait for our next visit!

    My wife had the fried (dark) chicken and potato cracklings and it was delicious! We will order that again. I had the roast beef debris poboy and braised green beens. I wish I had ordered the chicken! The poboy needed more of those touted juices and the wilted tomato and pickles did not help much either. The green beans disintegrated in my mouth (i.e. mushy!), note they are not of southern origin!

    We made the mistake of dining outside during a gospel event in market square. The gospel event was extremely loud. Actually, that’s an understatement. It was a lot of loud yelling and screaming over an over aggressive sound system. Totally ruined our dining experience. Not sure why Market Square allows this. I rated 4 stars because I know it wasn’t Tupelo Honey’s fault, but the restaurant needs to complain to event people of Market Square.

    Moving our son into college. The fried chicken & waffles was, I believe the best we’ve ever had- anywhere!! Also enjoyed the Pimento Cheese dip. On a previous trip we had the delicious banana pudding…just didn’t have room for it this time. Portion size is very generous. Location can’t be beat. A must-dine spot in Knoxville!

    Missed lunch so was hungry for an early dinner and arrived at the restaurant around 5. Bronson was my server and he was excellent. Food and drinks arrived promptly- perhaps even a little too promptly, but weren’t many patrons at such an early hour. Quality and presentation and taste of the food was excellent. Definitely recommend!!

    Overall everything was good. We have been here a few times and wanted our friends to enjoy a good meal. Because of traffic we were 15 minutes late. I did let the restaurant know we would be late. The hostess sat us at an unacceptable table. By the food to go and dirty dish rag for the bar. The server had to reach over to get the to-go meal. Asked for another table told curtly by the blonde hostess "There are no other tables you will just have to sit there." told all the tables open were reserved. The server talked to the manager who said it was all right to sit at an open table. The food was very good loved the fried green tomatoes and my chicken and waffles. Spouse got the new menu item Deconstructed beef. He really liked it. Throughout our meal, no one was seated at this table by the to-go food. A few tables were not filled while we were there.
