Had brunch here with some close friends to celebrate life and catch up and we can't stop talking about our experience. From the appetizers to the desserts, everything was such a treat! The mega-mimosas were on point and kept us giggling like school girls 😊Shouts to Antione the manager for being so attentive & thorough! Charleton & Garrett are phenomenol servers. We'll be back!

My party mistakenly spilled a glass and our server was quick to help! She insisted that she clean it up, and made sure we were satisfied with the clean-up. I couldn’t have asked for better waitstaff and really appreciated her help! Our orders came quickly and were delicious!

I had always enjoyed this restaurant in the past, but quality of menu and food has decreased. I was very disappointed.

I had a great time with my friends celebrating my birthday. I was able to book my reservation easily and the woman who answered the phone was very pleasant when I asked to confirm my time.

I arrived about 10min early and I was seated right away. My party was running a little behind and they were very nice about it! I let the staff know my party included 2 infants and they were very accommodating.

Our sever Noah was amazing and very patient with us. He made some good recommendations and I ended up ordering one of his suggestions and I’m glad I did. The food, staff, and environment makes me want to return!

Chicken appeared seasoned to perfection but did not taste like anything. However, was clean cut juicy chicken. Will go back to try the shrimp and grits.

First time visiting. Food was very good but our service was poor. Poor communications with the waiter. Hot sauce placed on food after verifying it would be on the side. Food had to be sent back and made meal with friends off in eating together. Coffee was allowed to get cold and had to ask for refills and still took a long time to get. Confusion on the order of biscuits being served with honey and butter but came with preserves. Biscuits were very hard. Our entrees were very good. May have just been an off experience for our first visit. Not sure of returning.

This meal was to take my daughter out for her 21st birthday. She is a vegetarian and the rest of us weren't, and she chose Tupelo Honey. It was our first time there and it won't be our last.

The food was Southern Cuisine and very good, my wife and I had the blackened catfish, my oldest daughter had a black bean burger, and the other girls had burgers. We had coctails, appetizers, our meal and dessert and coffee. The service was great and our server was very attentive. Everything was fantastic and we will definitely return, I would also like to try the brunch one weekend.

Once again, the meal was fantastic, and we will be returning. I highly recommend Tupelo Honey.

The benedicts are wonderful. The brussel sprout and fried pickle appetizers were crisp. The specialty drinks were original and tasty. The ginger/turmeric drink wasn't as tasty as expected but the lavender lemonade was delish. Server was prompt and attentive without hovering. Manager checked on tables and was very friendly.

First time there for brunch with my girls . Food was great ! I had the Buttermilk chicken with salt& pepper Brussels and Mac and cheese. I didn’t like the breadcrumbs topping but other than that it was good.

Disappointed because of how things have changed. The hostesses did not acknowledge our presence for 5-10min upon arrival. The Brussels sprout app was almost all shavings as opposed to whole or even halved pieces. The avocado toast was less than half the size it used to be on soggy toast instead of the hearty rustic bread it used to come on and the avocado eggs Benedict was more like someone had put an afterthought of guac on a biscuit than fresh avocados slices. Used to love this place, seems as though there have been so many cutbacks that the food was unrecognizable.

Food was great. The fried chicken was perfect. The drinks were NOT acceptable for the price. There was not even a full shot pour in most drinks they obviously cheap. Very disappointed in that.

I had a blast at this place. I went 2 days in a row. One for brunch and then dinner the next night. The food was out of this world, the drinks blew my mind and the staff was the best part of it all. Nathan and Patrick were great and the managers took it to the next level. Great place to go.

Everything was excellent as always, I was extremely happy that they could accommodate the entire family under the circumstances we are in. Our waitress was awesome and she
was on the ball. Food was delicious. Not our first time and not our last. We will be coming back.

The manager came over, introduced himself & who our waitress would be. Our waitress Yujin, came over with water & small talk. She came back shortly after for orders, when the food was delivered & as we were eating. We never had to ask for anything as she was there with napkins, refills, check - just very attentive.
