always a great experience at Tupelo Honey even if they were 86’d on their fabulous potato cracklins & roasted brussels sprouts- all the more reason for us to come back!

Tupelo Honey had incredible service and food. The thing that stuck out the most to my wife and me was how quickly our food was served to us after we ordered! They have amazing appetizers as well! Will definitely be back.

Very friendly and helpful waitress! My daughter loves the place, but my boyfriend and I still had some questions and she was very patient with us. We loved our food so much! Their goat cheese grits are to die for! I’m still dreaming about them! We can’t wait to come back to visit Knoxville again to go back to Tupelo Honey!

Definitely recommend Tupelo Honey for brunch! It’s a nice atmosphere to meet up with friends. Seems to have a good option for food. Great location in downtown Knoxville, parking garage right around corner of the square had free parking on weekends.

We were in Knoxville 6 years ago for 2 weeks. We were guest at Tupelo Homey Cafe 11 times. The food was great especially the fried okra. The food this time was not good at all.

First time out since March 2020. I had seen reviews that they were doing a great job with protocols to protect their customers and staff. It’s true. I felt safe and comfortable.
Thanks Tupelo Honey for a “normal” date night.

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.

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.

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!
