The food is unique and quite good, but they are struggling with the kitchen, according to our server. We had a few waits that we thought were longer than they should be and they served soup without a spoon. We had to wait for the server to reappear so we could ask for a spoon. Meanwhile, we saw several staff just standing around talking with each other, so we really don't know what the problem is.
Food was delicious and service was excellent! No complaints. I will be back
Great food, great service. Definitely need reservations though, it is popular
Great food and great server. Will be back for sure. Thanks.
10/10 recommend making a reservation I have been with out making one and it was a 2 hour wait but this time we made a reservation and it was so smooth! Ricole (sp?) was amazing!!!
The service was great however the food wasn’t as good as I expected
The food at Tupelo Honey is always delicious. Good vibe.
I have eaten here several times and have always been pleased; however this time I ordered just the waffles without the chicken. I received three 4 inch waffles, and a syrup bottle with a loose top. The top spilled all over the table, my phone and my purse. My 3 friends and I were not put at another table and 3 of us had to squeeze together on one side since the other side was not completely cleaned up. Last thing - Was charged $15.95 for the waffles!
We enjoyed our dining experience and catching up.
We will definitely be doing repeats.
Great food and customer service
Good service. Never felt rushed. Quiet enough to hold a conversation without yelling or straining to hear. Food was hot and tasty.
This place is so delicious! The atmosphere is homey yet modern and the service is wonderful. The food is amazing. Will come often!
Loved my server!!
We came to celebrate my Sister birthday. The food was great especially the Fried Green Tomatoes and Brussels Sprouts. The only thing I would say is I put on the reservation that it was her birthday but no type of acknowledgment was done. My waitress Dinah was amazing, her honest review and critique was spot on.
Great ambience, our server was great but, I asked for my eggs to be scrambled soft and they were hard; my grits were cold. My pancake was good and we tried the biscuits which were good. However, my son’s shrimp and grits were amazing. I was visiting from out of town so I would return again but, next time I would send my food back if it comes out not prepared as desired.
Fabulous service and even better food!! Can’t wait to go back!
Great food not great service! They sat us in the very back and we had to listen to the bartenders and waitresses complain about their job very loudly.
Nice set up for our party of seven and there were other larger parties near us without feeling crowded. The spicy cauliflower and crispy brussels were a perfect start to our meal.
Another fantastic meal! Great service, great food, great drink despite their being short handed with tight reservations. A perfect brunch experience!
Everything was amazing!! I ordered chicken and waffles with a side order of potatoes. So so delicious!!
Delicious Southwest Omlete, and sides were delicious as well. Will be back! Only drawback was parking. Available parking in the garage was full and street parking taken close to Tupelo was taken. Was still able to park 3Blocks away, but would have gone elsewhere in inclement weather. Glad it was a beautiful morning!!!
Decent outdoor dining for friends getting together.
Great food, excellent service, beautiful outdoor seating
Friday fall lunch date outside in the patio. Enjoyable afternoon lunch experience. Good food and drinks.
First time visiting - it was AMAZING! Will be back - it was worth the 2 hr drive!!!
Great time had by all
My family took me for my birthday and we had a lovely experience. The food was wonderful and the outside seating on a beautiful fall day was perfect.
Had a wonderful lunch. Staff was very friendly and the food was delicious!
The food was amazing. Service was fast and easy. Outdoor dining was clean and quiet. Good portion sizes and many different options. Tuesday evening so not really busy but everything was great.
This was my first time eating here at Tupelo Honey and I absolutely loved it. The food was amazing, the music was great and customer service was awesome! I’m a real estate agent and I bought some clients of mine who are from Illinois to eat here and they loved it as well. Our server Whitney was nothing short of amazing! She was very attentive, gave us our space when needed and never forgot to check on us at the same time. We will be back!
As always, my latest experience at Tupelo Honey was wonderful! I have always had a good experience with this wonderful restaurant/gathering place. They have handled COVID restrictions admirably, and their staff, even when swamped, is consistently welcoming. The food is ALWAYS delicious. This is truly one of my favorite restaurants in Raleigh!
The food was delicious and the service was quick and responsive
As a frequent diner with Tupelo, the food was excellent as always but the Hostess working the front was Terrible. We had a reservation, showed up a little early with a smaller group and asked if an earlier seating may be available. We were told in a rude manner that that wasn’t possible so we went to an open two top by the bar where she followed us to explain rudely that “We were welcome to wait outside”... we then went to the bar (about 6 ft from the two top) where the bartender told us we were certainly welcome to wait there. Not sure whom is training the hostess but she definitely needs to work on her demeanor... (You may want the bartender to train her as she certainly saved the situation and couldn’t have been nicer to our group).
Food was fantastic with everyone for our table of 5 people. Service struggled but where has this not been an issue? Our waiter had fast backup help which made a big difference for the better. Cocktails were terrific.
Portions are small compared to other similar places. Example was the chicken and Waffles. The chicken was very small and two pieces of Waffles. It's not a hungry man's place. It is a tasty dish but price and portion are not ideal.
Food and Service was great! Fried chicken you can't beat. I know its hard to find workers now, however, the restaurant furnishings were dusty and dirty. Need to do some housecleaning!
The food was delicious. The mimosas are out of this world
This was our 1st time. We ordered the fried Green tomatoes, Brussel sprouts and Chicken & waffle. The fried green tomatoes & Brussel sprouts were delicious. They were HOT and Fresh. However the chicken & waffle was cold it wasn't even lukewarm. But we didn't complain we still tipped our waitress $20. It wasn't her fault.
Other than that it was delicious
Laura our Server was incredible! Took great care of us, refills and check backs. Very friendly and helpful with the menu.
Holy waffles Batman the Ash ills mac and cheese waffle…out of this world, sriracha waffles fantastic.
Can’t wait to return next week!
Parking is awful at this place, but the food is worth it.
