    We hadn't been to Tupelo Honey in a while, but thanks to OpenTable we got in for Sunday Brunck. They have renovated a bit, and the restaurant seems more open. The server was very helpful, and we took her suggestions. My wife found her new favorite in the 'ol skool' bowl, and me the Bacon & Sausage Scramble. We will be looking forward to a return to Market Square soon.

    We arrived 20 minutes before our reservation time but were seated immediately. Coffee & water arrived in minutes - cute Southern glasses! We ordered biscuits, which arrived as an appetizer (10:00 AM Saturday). Our brunch items came as we were ready & tasted chef-prepared. Ticket& box came right on time. Restrooms are private & functional. The location on the Square puts you right out into the middle of all that’s going on.

    Made reservation days in advance. Seated next to bathroom in back. Yikes! Next time I will reserve a table out front. Food was great. Service was great. Seating us way in the back by bathrooms (when entire back section was open) was a negative for me.

    We were about 5 minutes late for our reservation on a busy Friday night. Staff was so kind and we were seated immediately. It was a bit warm inside but it was extremely warm outside! Service was outstanding and food was great.

    We enjoyed our meal prior to going to a concert. Service was very fast. My husband had the pork roast in skillet and was delicious. I’d definitely order again. I would have given 5 stars but I ordered the smothered chicken and it was over cooked and dry. The gravy wasn’t great either so I asked for honey siracha which helped. The sides of Brussels and grits were very good.

    We took our granddaughter for her 15th birthday. She loved it and we did too. It was 93 degrees, we sat outside under the awning and fans and it was very comfortable. Waiter was pleasant and good food mix for teenager and grandparents.

    We sat outside on a Saturday while the Farmer’s Market was taking place in Market Square. The food was good but the service was a little slow. Lots of loud talkers outside so it was hard to hear each other. We will go back, though.

    I hadn't been to Tupelo Honey for a few years. We were the only table for our server and she smothered us in checking in. Always needed to talk, not just fill water glasses, etc. Food was disappointing. Out of dark meat chicken and the sweetness of the all the sauces was simply over the top -- even when the sauce was to be spicy. I think I can take this option off of my list -- at least for a few more years.

    I didn’t like the new bench seating. This is the first time I’ve been dissatisfied with the food. The chicken breast in my sandwich was dry like it had been sitting under a warmer for a long time. The cauliflower bites were good. The crispy Brussels sprouts were bakes to a pulp. I think I’ll avoid it for awhile. My guests had Cobb salads, which they liked, but complained about the small amount of chicken they paid extra to add.

    Our server was excellent. It was only her second day and there were 8 of us. She was quick on drink refills and got everyone’s order correct. That is impressive even if it wasn’t her second day! Food was out quick and was delicious as always. I typically come here for breakfast/lunch, but the sweet and spicy chicken was great and Brussels sprouts were on point!
