    Service was not great. The coffee was watered down. Our food took forever to get and it did not taste good. Not what we were expecting from Tupelo Honey.

    Our server did a great job! Was our first time so we had questions about menu. So patient, answered every question with enthusiasm! Made us excited about our choices and decisions. We will be back…more good things we want to try. Loved the banana pudding and thank you for offering a mini version. Pecan pie fans should also try this!!!!

    They were out of biscuits at 9am opening, that's the staple of their breakfast menu! Entrees came out at the same time as our appetizer. We tried the hot honey chicken and waffles, the chicken was not juicy and smothered in sauce leaving the waffle soaked in hot sauce, and the waffle was cold. The salad greens were warm. Just overall such a disappointing breakfast.

    Tupelo Honey - Uptown CharlotteResponded on August 29, 2022Hello Tiffany. I am sorry that you had a disappointing experience with us. I want to assure you that this is not our standard.

    I go to this location for lunch quite a bit and am usually pleased. The food is great and we can be in and out in an hour so I chose it for a pre-game dinner. I made a reservation a few days ahead and when the four of us arrived, the hostess brought us to a table for two?? I had to point out that there were four of us standing there and we would need a bigger table. She then brought us to a table in the middle of the room. I asked for a booth as those tables are bigger and more comfortable. She said sorry, they have reservations. I said I have a reservation. She said let me check and then disappeared. Forever. During this time I checked my reservation to see if I messed up but my confirmation said four for sure. We mentioned the booth thing to our waitress and she said it was above her pay grade. We let it go. When we left, there were still several booths open. It was disappointing (not earth shattering) and will likely prevent me from bringing guests again. There is a great new Korean place across the street where you are treated like royalty. The same is true of many other spots in the immediate vicinity. I’ll spend my money elsewhere for a while.

    Tupelo Honey - Uptown CharlotteResponded on August 28, 2022Hello. I am glad to hear that you are usually pleased when you dine with us! I am sorry that we did not accommodate your seating preferences during your last visit. It is our goal to make every guest as comfortable as possible, but it sounds like we fell short of that. I hope that you will return soon.

    Waitress was really short— felt rushed throughout the whole meal, to the point i ordered another drink- to slow her down. Please don’t make paying patrons feel like they’re a bother to your section. Food was great. But the waitress mos def put a bad taste in my mouth, will try another location.

    I rarely leave a written review but Everyone was rude from the hostess to the waitress. It was very off putting. We were not checked on and when we asked for something politely we were met with an attitude. I Would not recommend . I’ve been to the one in Greensville SC and had a much better experience at that location.

    Very good food (esp. the appetizers). VERY VERY noisy restaurant, however. Glad we could go outside on their covered patio area, where the sound went from deafening to almost manageable. Perhaps it was a special night, as the crowd was very energetic. Music was too loud, and focused on a certain demographic (not ours).

    My friend and I arrived. The server was really nice. We ordered. My friend had the original chicken with Mac and Cheese. I ordered the smothered chicken with collards and Mac and Cheese. We also ordered biscuits as an appetizer. The food came before the biscuits. We decided not to get them. The server brought complimentary biscuits as she said the manager stated we HAD to try them. My smothered chicken wasn’t really smothered. It was more like country fried with white gravy drizzled on top. My collards were cold. The Mac and cheese was ok. My friend’s chicken was dry. We asked the server for some sort of sauce to help it out. It didn’t. The biscuits weren’t edible. They were hard as bricks. We saw the family next to us pull theirs to a part and butter it. No chance with the two we had. After acknowledgment of the horrible food by the manager and the server, no one tried to rectify the food concerns, just $5 off of the bill. It was disappointing as my first food experience in Charlotte.

    We came to Tupelo Honey for a Bachelorette Brunch following a night out. Everything was spectacular! Our server, Amira, made our experience even better! She was fun, attentive, and knowledgeable of the menu. The food and drinks were outstanding! Management even gave the bride a Tupelo Honey cookbook as a surprise gift! They seriously went above and beyond and made the brunch perfect!
