We went for brunch on a Saturday morning. The food was absolutely fantastic. The drinks are pricey but we still ordered them. We had plenty of room for our party of 12.

It was a very warm, humid morning and we had a dog with us so we sat outside (bonus you can bring your pup!). It was much too warm but the restaurant has umbrellas which helped.

I’d recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal.

We arrived a bit late in the evening. My wife's chicken breast was dry. My spinach salad ok. Didn't exactly live up to the hype from what we read online, but we *were tired from a long day of moving kids into college. Server was very pleasant.

A cup of coffee took forever to come to the table. It was someone’s birthday and we told the waitress and she didn’t acknowledge it at all. Waitress barely came back to the table once. Food was good, definitely go for brunch instead of dinner.

Visited before and had overall better experience. Wasn’t as busy as normal yesterday and still received poor service. Not sure if I’ll go back anytime soon.

It was fine , ambience was great . Cool vibe . Ice cold eggs for myself son and daughter . Asked the server and he said the avocado makes it cold . But it was really cold manager gladly fixed it upon second request . He was a pleasure. Kinda felt like we were an inconvenience to the server .

Tupelo Honey is a great place (atmosphere and food). We were quite turned off by our waitress. It made us feel as if we were not wanted there or she was ready to go. Either way, it would probably not stop me from coming back, but I would request someone else if it were her.

Service was really good! Food, not so much unfortunately. Eggs were just kinda weird, greenish brown, avocado toast brown and not looking too fresh, biscuits not up to their usual greatness. We went late in the afternoon on a Saturday and our breakfast seemed like it was ready for the switch to lunch. Great staff though.

2nd time here and it was just as nice as the first time. Food was great. Service was the only place I found needed some improvement. Our order came wrong on one plate and instead of just taking it back to fix it the server took on a bit of an attitude and requested that we explain in detail what was wrong with the dish. She wasn't the person who took our order, but acted as if she were and that she had done it right. "What about this plate isn't right??" . She huffed a bit once we explained (3rd time in the convo) and walked away rolling her eyes. She seemed annoyed from the moment she came to our table. She soured our experience for sure.

This was my second time at Tupelo Honey and again it was wonderful :) We celebrated my boyfriends birthday and even though they didn't come out this time with a little pancake and a candle it was still delicious and satisfying. My boyfriend tried the mimosas and I got an Irish Coffee and both were delicious and the Irish coffee had thick whip cream on top with a little mint leaf, the attention to detail stood out to me. Thank you again for a great brunch!

I went here for lunch, and expect it to be able to get an item from their lunch menu quickly. It took approximately 50 minutes to fill the order. News to say by then my time for lunch was over. The only saving grace is they recognized the issue and comp the meal. We just put it in boxes to go. although the food was fine I would not recommend it if you have a limited amount of time, like a lunch hour.

Terrible experience for our brunch reservation. Service was the worst I have had at Tupelo and in Raleigh overall. We felt like an "inconvenience" the entire team and like we had to apologize to our waitress whenever we asked for things...like if our missing food was going to come out, or if we could have more coffee or drinks. The food orders were all messed up and there wasn't any apology or extra effort to make it right. I will not go back again and this was one of my favorite brunch options.

Dinner was delicious although not up to the quality of the Asheville location. Fried green tomatoes and grits were cold but tasty. Our entrees were flavorful and we enjoyed them. We will be back next time we are in town.

Out of menu items at 7PN,
Mispoured cocktails,
Wrong food delivered to the table,
Cold food delivered,
Staff and service severely lacking.
Manager on duty did his best to make things right but the experience was far below expectations.
We won't be going back.

Tupelo Honey was one of my fav restaurants. I loved their grits and goat cheese. However, the dish arrived with no seasoning, it was completely bland, AND it had bacon in it. I don't eat pork. When I told the waitress, she said, "Oh, it must have fallen in there." (HUH?!?!? Really?!?!?) I also had roasted chicken (white meat). The wing attached to the chicken breast was so very hard and dry, it was inedible. We ordered the Apple Cider Mimosas. The Apple Cider used in the drinks was clearly old, as the tasted like apple cider vinegar. I was grossly disappointed. My first visit to Tupelo Honey was in Asheville. I was thrilled when it opened in Raleigh. I have bought the cookbook as gifts to family members. This experience was actually unacceptable. Greatly disappointed!!!

I had a great first experience at the Virginia Beach location so when I found out there was one in Raleigh I was excited. I’m sad to say that the Raleigh location is just “ok”. The service was great but my food was not hot when it arrived. Also, when I first arrived I was told it was a 40 minute wait (mind you other couples were seated after I was told that and there were plenty of tables) so I immediately made a reservation on Open Table THEN I was seated. I felt as if that was ridiculous. It would have been nice if the hostess explained that a reservation was needed or if they were understaffed...something smh I most likely will not be returning to this location.

The food was amazing but a bit overpriced and definitely geared to the millennial population. The is a parking issue, as well.
Is it worth it? Yeah. But I probably wont go back. $22.00 for Shrimp and Grits is a little to much for me...
Our service was a bit on the slow side.

The food (fried chicken) was extremely dry, the meatloaf was over salted. Sadly since we were there for dinner we left hungry as the food was not edible

First time visit, notified them of special wedding anniversary prior to the visit but nothing was done or mentioned. Ordered avocado Benedict which came with no good black mashed avocado- yuck tasteless. Ordered side of eggs which was forgotten and then came out black and cold. French toast was paper thin and hard. Overall the only thing that was good was the coffee, even the mimosas were sadly sucked... which is hard to screw up.

I took my Aunt Shay to Tupelo Honey for her birthday this past Saturday. I made reservations through opentable and mentioned it was her birthday. It was both our first time at Tupelo Honey and I was impressed. From the moment we walked in they greeted us promptly and said Happy Birthday to my aunt :) After we were seated the waitress even said Happy Birthday and after our meal they brought out a cute little pancake with a candle! It was well put together. The staff seemed very confident and well organized. I like the vibe of this place and the warm smiles.

I went with my Bridal party, the food was good the service was not. Our waitress had no energy and moved like a turtle, my 88 year old Grandma could have served us better! It took her FOREVER just to get us things like straws and drinks when asked, and the food took years to come out. We were at the table stating how we should have just ran the bride through Bojangles drive through, you would think they were packed but they weren't. Once the food came out some orders were wrong so we ate what we had, didn't get to eat my meal all together. My french toast was delicious after they replaced it and the ambiance was very nice!
