I already sent a note to the restaurant after my experience. But I’m a vegan and was told that the only option for me was dry lettuce. Seems they should have AT LEAST 1 vegan option on the menu or a vegan dressing. So I just had to watch my friends eat. With so many people now with allergies and all of the research being done about plant based living, not having an option seems like a huge oversight. Hope they can make improvements. In their defense, my meat eating friends enjoyed their meals and the service was good.

I love Tupelo Honey. My food is always good. I was a little bummed that they didn't have the mountain trout on the menu, that is what I drove all the way to Raleigh for, but my burger was still great and my potato cracklings were hot and fresh. Our waitress had just the right amount of attentiveness. She was not over bearing, but we also did not go without.

I felt comfortable with the socially distanced tables when we entered, as I was a little nervous to be back in a restaurant. They required masks while walking which helped as well.

I got the $7 French toast deal and two of the $3 mimosas. They were all great. We also enjoyed the biscuits with homemade blueberry jam and the cheese grits. We loved that the profits from the biscuit helps the employees affected by COVID as well.

First time here post pandemic - we have always had a great experience but this time was different. The food was mediocre and service was okay. I got the shrimp and grits and my husband, the dish with pancakes and fried chicken. My shrimp were not cooked and all I could taste was butter in the grits. My husbands was good but he's not one to complain about food. I am sure they have some adjusting as we all get back to normal but this time wasn't great.

I was definitely blown away by Tupelo's food. I feel like it's often hard to find good, authentically prepared food and not just something generic. We started with the fried pickle appetizer, which was amazing. The thin-sliced pickle chips were fried to perfect and the ranch dipping sauce was equally tasty. I ordered the buttermilk fried chicken breast with gravy, mac and cheese, and fries. (Skip the fries, weren't that great) but everything else was very well done. I will definitely be back!

We love the energy and good vibes on Sundays at the Raleigh location
Everyone was so upbeat- from checking in to waiting for our table. The service was spectacular- the manager stopped by our table and thanked us for coming in. The restaurant was constantly busy- and we felt healthy and safe with all the measures they have in place to keep it germ-free and an enjoyable "careful dining" experience. We love our waiter Nate (Nathan) who tended to our every need in a timely manner. The COFFEE is spectacular and we love all the brunch items. This is a must-visit for us at least once a month- brunch thru dinner- we love every menu item.
