    Tupelo Honey is unbelievably good. From the atmosphere, customer service and their amazing flavors in the food. Our group had the pimento cheese dip, fried green tomatoes, gumbo, shrimp and grits, smothered chicken, fried chicken and Mac and cheese waffles, and a salad with the famous friend chicken. We finished off with the banana pudding that knocked our socks off. Absolutely amazing. We can’t wait for our next trip!!!

    I had the splash burger - it was good, but I wish they had an option to order it with just one beef patty. With 2, it is getting too large to comfortably bite into.

    It has been a long time since we’ve eaten at Tupelo Honey… But the experience was great. The food was great and served warm, the service was warm and friendly, and the ambience was a little noisy, but had a good vibe.

    2nd time at one of these restaurants. This time not great. Fried pickles good. Fried chicken was dry. Meatloaf dinner was okay. Had a side of the crispy potatoes and they were overcooked. Caesar salad was overwhelmed with parmesan cheese and way too much dressing.

    When I booked the reservation online they only had high top tables available but when we arrived they actually seated us at a regular table thankfully. My friend and I were eating here prior to a show at the Tennessee Theater. The biscuits were amazing. I could have eaten those as a meal! My friend got the mahi mahi and I got the salmon with brussel sprouts instead of the quinoa. I was upcharged for the brussel sprouts which was fine. Both dishes were cooked perfectly. This is one of my new favorite places to eat.

    We always love our visits and meals when in town. The service is always outstanding. My only complaint was this time they allowed in a homeless man to just hangout in a booth. He was seated next to us and we sat through an unpleasant odor the entire time we were there.

    We had the absolute best service. That’s been a consistent experience at the Knoxville location, though the Asheville location is banned because of the horrible service. I took my daughter to dinner before a show at the TN Theater. We both enjoyed our meals. The cocktails leave much room for improvement. I’ve never had a good cocktail there and will stick to wine or just water. My only complaint is we paid $100 including tip for two drinks, two salads. That’s all we got! Waaaaay overpriced for what you get.

    Great service once we were seated. We were on time for our reservation but our table was not available. We were seated over 30 minutes late which would normally not be an issue but we had plans. The manager was apologetic and kind but it made our afternoon very hectic. If we were 30 minutes late on a day that there was a one and a half hour wait we would likely not have been seated. We will likely not return.

    I had made the reservation online as this is where my now fiancé wanted to eat. The day was special, and was the day I proposed. That being stated they knew; as I had called the establishment and explained that I was proposing that day, asking about outside heaters. I was informed that it would be tough to accommodate me as even outside was booked. While we were there there was no one else outside eating, and the heaters were not adequate for the 47 degrees F. Not just that but there were at least 2 tables inside that remained Vacant for our dinner that we could have transferred to (if they could have informed us). I had ordered the wild turkey drink and so did my friend as several friends were joining as a surprise. When I say WOW I don't mean it in a good way! My drink amount didn't even cover the single ice cube. And my buddies did but hardly. As the food came out a plate sauce container was dropped and ranch splashed up. We thought no one got hit, but later found out ranch had splashed up under the table, and hit 3 guests. (The one being proposed too, the camera lady and myself). This didn't help WHEN WE FOUND OUT IN OUR PROPOSAL PICTURES after walking around with what looked like white goop on us for a while after. Yea not happy. Once we had food I even had to go myself and ask the kitchen for ketchup. It was funny when the waiter realized I was paying for the whole table, all of a sudden I was getting responsive service. Not once was there a apologetic attitude. Other than at the end when handing the near $400 bill to me. Only rating above a 1 star as the food was tasty. Would not recommend at this time as this was a black mark on an amazing and exceptional day. As I am now to be married I might revisit one day for the nostalgia of the day, as we will look back and laugh to be humbled.

    Food was fine, server was average. Biggest disappointment was that for our 115 appointment we did not get food until after 2pm and we ordered nearly as soon as we sat down. The server never came back to keep us up to date about why it took so long. Food was fine, but lukewarm so probably had been sitting in the window for a few minutes. Better communication is key when the restaurant is running 45 minutes for a meal. Especially when the couple next to us got their food in 15 minutes.
