The food & service at Tupelo Honey are great. The drinks, while tasty, are small and not cheap…. And not much alcohol. One lady had a Bloody Mary which was about the size of a small juice glass.
Met friends there yesterday for early dinner. We started with the fried green tomatoes on grits to share. Very tasty. Two of us had the vegetable plate- everything was delicious especially the collards. I tried the peach cole slaw…but that was disappointing. Desserts- banana pudding was yummy!

Poor waitress service. I had to track her down several times to get drink refills, condiments, and to go boxes.

Food was okay. Service was horrible. This was a 75th Birthday dinner that we reserved in advance. I realize the pandemic has affected the shortage of staff, but we went very long periods of time without any refills or any service. Never was offered dessert (I guess I should have brought my own for the celebration). Waited 45 min for the check.

The fried chicken lacked any seasoning, and the Mac and cheese waffles were bland. The shrimp linguine was good but wish the chicken was good.

I got the cast iron pork with two sides. The pork was delicious, but my side of Brussels sprouts were too crispy and collard greens were too salty. Would not recommend those sides. Also, our server took forever to check on us and give us the bill.

The service was prompt and professional. Food was great though chicken was a little over cooked, the waffle was great. Love the ability to pay virtually and divide checks.

Was very open and loud but very inviting and would definitely return.

Server was very professional, pretty and intelligent. She helped us with our selections and made sure to keep our drinks filled. The location was nice and the size of the restaurant was bigger inside than you expect from looking at the outside.

Food tasted good but we waited over an hour to get it. It was not many people in the restaurant either. No offer or apology. I normally enjoy my visit but if this is a sign to come than I may not be back.

Slow service. Took an hour for food to be ordered. Our meal total took 2 and a half hours. Waiter kept forgetting drinks and waited 20 minutes before getting us waters. We’ve been a few times before but I don’t think we’ll be going back. And the chicken was way to dry to pay nearly $20. Tea was watered down.

Made a reservation and when walking in you immediately saw how understaffed they were. Iced water didn’t have any ice in it. Waitress was clearly overwhelmed. Ordered some appetizers that were good. Ordered drinks that took a long time to come out. Entrees also took forever to come out as well. There was not any pepper sauce for collard greens- weird! Everyone is understaffed right now which I understand, but you have to turn people away so the people who come to support the restaurant, will return.

Great place to hang out, good drink selection and food menu. The wait staff was just so friendly and amazing. We loved our guy, totally forgot his name after the Mimosa went in. But he’s the cool dude with the Diamond nose stud.

They have indoor and outdoor seating. We loved the Avacado toast appetizer!

Food was delicious. It took over an hour for our appetizers to arrive but in the meantime the table that was sat 15 min after us received their order before they were brought out. We did have different servers too so that could have been the difference. We went in knowing it could take awhile due to staff shortages but when another table gets their order before your appetizers are brought out it is ridiculous.

I’m sure this is normally a great place. I know restaurants are short staffed now and hopefully that will change. Our server was knowledgeable about their offerings and was quick to offer thoughts on our proposed orders. However she was alone in the section we were in so she was stretched to keep up. For the menu, I’ve never had chicken thighs used for Chicken and waffles. Wish that was pointed out on the menu. Also the waffle iron was dead so I had pancakes as a substitute. My mistake. The tables need to have the tops refreshed as they are sticky from constant cleaning. This is a open space that can be cool. I like the concept and will try again. Hopefully the managers will take inventory of their operations and view the experience from a customer point of view and fix a few of these issues.

I’ve been to this restaurant several times and the entire experience has alway been amazing so I thought to bring my mom and her colleagues to celebrate her birthday. Unfortunately, it was the WORST experience I’ve ever had in dining. Our food - our orders were wrong & horrible to say the least. I specifically came there for the infamous sweet potato pancakes of which I told our waitress when I ordered a stack for myself and my mom yet she never put my order of them in and when I asked her where they were her response was”I know we spoke about them but I didn’t know you wanted me to order them” then she only brought my mother the regular mix pancakes and instead of admitting that she put the order in wrong she tried to convince us that they were the right pancakes. She never offered us water or silverware to eat with we had to request it. It took 45 minutes for part of our party to receive our first round of drinks & when we got our 2nd I told her that 2 of our party members hadn’t received their first drink yet & her response was “I only have 2 hands”. The only reason as to why I’m giving 2 stars is because the manager is as completely understanding, compassionate & empathetic. He apologized and even discounted our bill graciously. While my mom and her colleagues probably will no longer returns as it was their first time, I certainly hope they change their employees customer service.

The staff is obviously overworked. Management needs to do a better job with limiting customers/reservations to fit their staff's capacity. Hire more staff and THEN fill all the seats. Maybe then all the seats and tables won't be sticky, orders won't take an exorbitant amount of time, and a waiter or host will have enough energy to smile. Also, food was meh for the price.

Good place to get a quick bite to eat. I made reservations and still had to wait for a table. That’s why the 4 stars along with part of my food being mediocre (Rosemary & Parmesan potatoes were not good. Dried out). Server KK was attentive and kind.
