    Cool place, outside dining is nice with the market square. Chicken seasoning is excellent. Sunday afternoon was very busy, server and bar were backed up. Glad we tried but probably won’t hurry back.

    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.

    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.

    This place is always busy- because the food is very good. Some interesting menu options that make it not "brunch as usual". Service can be a bit spotty- some servers are better than others, we went two days in a row, first day, service was spot on and the next day, the kid seemed to be in outer space. Biscuits- good! Harvest bowl- outstanding! so much flavor. Avocado melt- masterpiece!! Crispy potatoes- good! Grits- good! Drinks- good!

    The restaurant is really cute but do not expect to hear anyone at your table - it’s a load place. Our waitress seemed pre occupied with another table. The food was “meh” at best.
