Southern
Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home. We craft brunches, lunches and suppers that bring family and friends around the table and allow for conversations and cocktails to linger longer than usual. Always scratch-made, always responsibly-soured, and always Southern.
Reservations recommended for weekends.

We had guest from out of state come in to celebrate an 87th birthday and everyone praised their food selections, which was really good. But our waitress was even better,.
You would have thought we were VIPs - We're definitely going back and soon.

Just went for some drinks and apps on a Tuesday evening. The staff were EXCELLENT and I want to give them a shout out. I'll be honest, though, given the reviews I had much higher expectations for the food and drinks. They were fine but nothing to write home about. Could use some better lighting or something to set the patio apart.

Great service and great food! My son and I went to Tupelo Honey in Raleigh after Easter Services, and it did not disappoint. I have been to this location for work lunches but never casually. Our server was friendly, the food came out quickly and was just what we wanted. We had the very large and delicious buttermilk biscuits to start. My son had the pancakes and bacon and I had the avocado toast and eggs. We finished with the mini desserts...we would recommend all the dishes!

Good dining experience; just a bit of a wait for main entree. Everything was very tasty, but on one caveat -the fried chicken was a bit dry; although very tasty.

Always good, although this was our least favorite trip to Tupelo so far. Service was fine; however, the coffee is usually amazing and today it was a bit lackluster. Basically dinner coffee with better presentation. We were asked if we wanted to start with bread but not made aware we’d be paying extra for it. $50 + tip is a lot for breakfast but that’s the brand I guess. Still a good spot for a special occasion.

There was no wait as we booked ahead! The food took a long time to come out. Their friend chicken was amazing as usual! The biscuits were cold and hard. They bought us out 2 new ones when we were waiting. They were out of collard greens at 6:30 pm! We were bummed about that. The staff was very nice and friendly. If you are looking for a twist on your fried chicken and do not mind paying a higher price point eat here.

Social distancing / covid protocol was mostly observed, but there were obvious areas in the restaurant where there were no barriers between parties of guests. We were able to easily switch from the first table proposed by the hostess to a different one which felt safer, but assume if we hadn’t made reservations for a very early dinner that would not have been possible as they were packing guests in table by table when we finished. The food was, at all Tupelo’s, great!

Took 45 minutes to sit us with a reservation, both hostesses were rude and chicken was bland but at least the manager gave us a complimentary appetizer for the wait.

It’s unfortunate to say this, but I don’t understand how this place has so many high ratings. Although the customer service was very good, and our waitress was kind and attentive, the food is sub par at best. The atmosphere feels more like a dining hall cafeteria.

Food was good. Service was very bad. Took forever for someone to even stop by the table, then he was slow during the entire visit. We had to ask for every single drink refill and waiter seemed bothered to have to provide service. Not friendly at all. We sat in a booth and the ledge between the two booth sections was covered in dust. No way they were cleaned in at least a week.

Hoping this was just an “off” day as we usually have a pleasant experience.
