The food, atmosphere and service was excellent! I got the cast iron pork, peach salsa (which was out of this world good!) and collards. We also really enjoyed the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. Loved it and will be back!

We were quite disappointed in the menu changes.
NO BISCUITS?!
NO FRIED OKRA?!
NO TOMATO SOUP?!
The menu looked like I had gone to the wrong restaurant.

Great food. Servers wearing masks inside. We choose to eat on the terrace. Great you can make reservations to sit outside.

Fried green tomatoes excellent. Mac and cheese had been sitting too long and had separated out. Brussel sprouts were amazing. Good table distancing. Excellent wait staff.

Both my wife and I had the fried chicken with a spicy honey covering. It was very good. It was a little sweet and a little spicy. The flavor was very good and the batter used on the fried chicken was very good.

Tupelo Honey has certainly changed. They were out of honey for sale and they have stopped serving biscuits complimentary before the meal. My chicken breast was thin and had very little meat and my wing had no meat on it. Drinks are now $3.50 each which will really boost your bill. I would highly recommend you select another restaurant for dining.

Ambiance and people were great at this location! The food was sub par, chicken disappointed me after hearing all the rave about it. Would rather talk to other locals about better spots to go, recommend Brian with on the gray line trolley service as a great guide!

We chose Tupelo Honey because they had a vegetarian bowl that we could eat. The waiter was very patient and understanding when we asked how it was prepared. He took great care to remove the items we couldn't eat. Trenton is the best. Please ask to sit at his tables if you eat during the lunch shift. Shrimp and grits were really good. Biscuits are to die for. Fried chicken is unique and worth the calories. We will definitely go back to this location. Not touristy. Outdoor seating and open air dining inside. I recommend making a reservation.

Shoo Mercy was impeccable. A lot of food but so good I couldn't leave any of it. Spice on the chicken and in the sweet potato pancakes were both just right. Rosemary and parmesan potatoes were perfect.
l
Mountain Harvest bowl was awesome too (taking my fiance's word ... she's just as particular and discriminating as I am).

The menu was so limited. Fried chicken being the prevalent protein.
Portions were like kids plates. I managed to get blackened catfish the waitress originally said they didn't have it. It was the size of my palm. About 2 fork fulls of greens and a tiny green salad, literally mixed greens, baby tomato and a few pieces of pickled onion. $19.25. Everything had to be salted. I know Covid hurt but you won't get customers back that way.

Delicious and enjoyable lunch. Beautiful restaurant. My only complaint is paying over $12 for an entree that was tiny.

The food was incredible but the service was subpar. The waiter was not friendly and unhelpful with menu questions. The redo wasn’t busy and properly staffed, maybe he was filling in for someone or having a bad day, but he was very unpleasant to deal with. Especially since this was our first time here.

Seating could have been managed better. We arrived for our reservation but were told that we would have to wait until "our table" was ready. But it was well before the dinner rush and there were plenty of tables available. Two couples came in after us without reservations but were seated. Could have used a little common sense and possibly seated us first? Just a suggestion. Will go back but will not use reservation system.
