    Biscuits were great and breakfast items were wonderful. My wife had the avocado toast on a biscuit and she very much liked the hollandaise sauce. I had the traditional breakfast and loved the country sausage. Restaurant can be loud if full but certainly acceptable for a good breakfast.

    One oops, the hostesses were distributing the dinner menu instead of the brunch menu when seating customers at 9:00 am. We brought that to the attention of Josie, our waitress (or do I have to use the non-gender specific term of server?), and the problem was quickly rectified. Josie was very attentive, friendly, and efficient! I would specifically request her in the future.

    Food was mostly bland, and where it wasn't it was either too salty or too spicy, which overpowered any flavor it might have had. Bloody Mary was just OK, as was the Mimosa.

    Disappointing experience. Want to love this Tupelo Honey again, but hard to recommend dining here to others anymore. Prior visits have been hit or miss, but too many misses this visit, especially during what was explained (and acknowledged) as a special occasion. Despite ordering as soon as asked, long wait for the appetizer (just fried pickles)… which finally came at the same time as our entrees. Wait staff nearly gave us other tables’ food multiple times during and after the wait for our appetizer. Seemed part of a larger lack of coordination as we saw wrong orders brought to other tables as well. Don’t believe we were ever asked if we wanted refills of our beverages (why bother noting on the menu refills are included?) Once our food, appetizer included, finally came, we were asked very soon after if we wanted the check and to go boxes. Given the short amount of time that had passed and the obviously small amount of food we’d eaten so far, being asked if we wanted boxes/the check so quickly felt like being quickly rushed out. The food was fine, not up to the quality I’d had for the same entree and sides in prior visits, but not terrible. At this price definitely not enough to make up for the poor service and experience. Most of the few interactions we did have with staff left me feeling like we were an unwelcome inconvenience. I understand that despite the number of vacant tables they could have been short staffed, but even then there are ways to show care for the customer having a positive, or at least satisfactory, experience.

    Fried chicken is always good, the shrimp and grits is awesome. Service was a bit inattentive and mechanical - from the hostess stand to the table, it felt like we were an imposition.

    Employees were attentive and friendly. Ordered the $23 Mahi Mahi meal and it was very disappointing. It is a shockingly small piece. Probably 4 -5 Oz before cooking and it was tough,dry and flavorless. Such a disappointment. We won't be back as this is our second trip to Tupalo and though the service and staff are great. The food is disappointing.

    Went for lunch on a Wednesday. Place was pretty crowded. We had a reservation and sat indoors. We were having a business conversation and it was a bit noisy inside so be aware of that. Food value was great. Foot prep was good. I had the Asheville hot chicken. Chicken was prepared very good, but I think they left off the actual hot seasoning because my sandwich was just a chicken sandwich. The rosemary potato cracklings were very good too. I would definitely return

    Ordered the biscuits for starters. Had to ask for them a second time. When we picked one up to butter or use a spread, they fell into about 3 or 4 pieces. Dried out, sitting too long ? Couldn't use the butter to spread because it seemed the butter was kept in the freezer until needed. When we tried to spread the jam the biscuit fell apart even more. Also ordered the cheesy grits. Grits had a bland taste and the menu assured us that they were made with goat cheese but neither one of us could get any sense of any cheese. The grits were also thin and watery. A couple years ago we had the chance to eat at Tupelo Honey in Ashville, NC. There is no comparison. Tupelo Honey Ashville is a delightful eating experience. The Milwaukee location needs to work on it. Won't be back for awhile. Thanks.

    Service from waiter and trainee was great. Smothered chicken & perch fish fry, plus cauliflower were great as well as drinks. Pecan pie delicious. Brussel sprouts were a bit bland. We’d go back for sure!

    Food was ok, service could’ve been better. We were not given straws at first, and when one person asked for a straw, the server only brought one straw instead of straws for everyone. It was a little strange.

    We absolutely loved Mary who was our server at the time! This was my third time here but my mother’s first time and she absolutely enjoyed it. Our food was delicious and came out quickly. My mimosa was good however my mom didn’t care for it for which we were comped for. She loved the ambiance of the restaurant and now we are planning to bring my grandmother back for her birthday next month. Also both hostess were so welcoming!
