We were sat at a table that was bolted to the wall. Over time the table has started to sag. It's kinda lame to have to point this out as our previous visit to Tupelo was great. We were reseated at a new table but it had the same problem. If I'm going to spend $40-$70 on food and drinks for two people I want a better experience than having to worry if the table is going to fall off the wall. As nice as Tupelo is it's weird they would allow two of their tables to fall into disrepair. Will definitely rethink future reservations if there's a chance of sitting at broken tables.

First time. Enjoyed it, but we were seated in a high traffic area near the kitchen which proved to be a little disruptive.

We had a wonderful meal at TH last weekend. It was a pleasant evening so elected to sit outside. (Inside can be a little loud). Wait staff was attentive and our meals were perfect. I had the ribs with crispy Brussels sprouts and collards. Could not have been better. Would highly recommend.

Sat outside which was good but it is street side so a little noisy. Food was great. We did not get biscuits and we received the wrong appetizer but all in all it was a good dinner.

We came for brunch and were seated promptly for our noon Sunday reservation. Everyone was friendly and the service was prompt. It was packed and noisy! I have been to the original in Asheville. I think my disappointment is that this just isnt that. I mean its bougie Southern - kale and grits- but, it feels more like a chain restaurant than the farm to table feel of the original. Good experience, just not as great as the original.

Love the atmosphere, but my steak and eggs were both over cooked. Medium rare was more like medium well and over easy eggs were medium. Chicken was as good as always and I enjoyed time with friends.

Anniversary meal at Tupelo: couldn’t have had a better experience! Hannah was our server and she was fantastic; she was attentive and super kind to us. When she brought us the pancake with a lit candle “because she heard it was our anniversary,” she made our day. Hannah seemed excited to help us celebrate and she made sure we were taken care of exceptionally well the entire time. I would go back because the food was great - *and* even more so because Hannah gave us a great experience. 12 out of 10!

I really enjoyed this place. There were many interesting interpretations of traditional southern dishes. In fact, there were too many for me to try!! I wish I had the meatloaf or the fried chicken. I did try my son’s ribs, which were excellent. My steak was pretty good, the flavor was there, but a bit too tough.

The decor was very nice with some very nice themes that made it feel warm but chic.

Service was good. Our server was Jayla (spelling?) and she was a sweetheart and very helpful.

Everything that I have tried at this location does not disappoint. Add Salmon to the Beet Goat Cheese Salad to kick it up a notch...YUM! Love the complimentary biscuits with homemade blueberry compote. I recommend spreading the pimento cheese on to a biscuit for a good, savory flavor. Kudos to my server, Tiffany. :)

Visiting from MA for Parents Weekend, went Friday for a quick cocktail and appetizers. The Tequila Bloody Mary and the Fried Okra were amazing. So good in fact that we returned on Sunday for Lunch. The Shrimp and Grits were perfectly prepared and Delicious. The Chicken dip appetizer with homemade chips, Yum!
Would highly recommend Tupelo Honey

Celebrated my best friends birthday for brunch and boy was it not a celebration. Our waitress seemed like she not only hated her job, but hated us. I told the waitress it was my friends birthday as well as having it in the reservation because typical they give a dessert to the birthday person. She didn’t receive anything. Also, all of our orders were wrong and we were overcharged. I ordered the avocado Benedict with no hollandaise and on gluten free bread after telling the waitress I have an allergy to gluten and dairy and I wasn’t given any avocado and realized later that afternoon that it was regular bread. Not gluten free. I have celiac disease and severe lactose intolerance she made zero effort to make note of that.

I had friends from out of town visiting, and we were all very pleased with our visit. Friendly, helpful service. All the food was terrific. For appetizers we had Mac & Cheese Bites, and the Crispy Brussels. We had the Salt-Roasted Beet Salad with salmon, the Honey-Dusted Fried Chicken, with white meat and dark meat, with the root vegetables side. And then Banana Pudding for desert.

Looking forward to my next visit.

Although we had a reservation we were sat 30 minutes late. Requested outside, was sat inside. Food was OK but service was slow. Drinks came after the appetizers. It was slow but OK.

I've never been disappointed at any of Tupelo Honey's other locations and Raleigh's was no different. We both got the breakfast special (eggs, sweet potato pancakes, and sausage) which was delicious. The coffee was superb, and the Bloody Mary was exquisite. Tupelo Honey is a can't miss establishment.

Food was great! Manager made up for slow service- we appreciated the extra attention-everybody came to eat at 6:30p. We dined outdoors. Restaurant is super pet friendly. If you don’t mind someone else’s dog at your feet while you’re eating then this outdoor dining experience is for you. My husband said fried chicken amongst the best he’s eaten. Worth a second try!

If you have eaten at any of the other Tupelo Honey locations, the one in Raleigh offers the same taste and quality you have come to expect. The only drawback to this location is its location. Parking is a challenge to say the least! Thankfully, the restaurant wasn't crowded (something I've never experienced at any other Tupelo Honey location). Was sad to see such a nice location have such seating in disrepair. The booth we were seated in had black tape over the distressed areas of the seats. Hopefully, those will be replaced soon -- or at least show customers in your not-very-crowded restaurant to a booth that isn't so sketchy (if you slid over, you hardly noticed the tape rubbing against your backside). We enjoyed our meals!

We had a large group meeting for dinner the night before our wedding. The day of the reservation we had some last minute additions. I called the restaurant to modify and had no problems; they were very understanding and efficient. Our dining experience was very much of the same. We were seated promptly and greeted by our waitress. Our waitress did a great job with our large party. Everyone was very pleased with the service and their food selections.
