The food was outstanding. Shrimp and grits are wonderful. The collard greens and mac and cheese are sinfully delicious.

Very good food. I had spicy fried chicken very good. Collard greens and meat loaf were excellent. Cat head biscuit s were the best I have ever had. Reasonable prices. No parking had to walk 5 blocks.

The only outstanding negative is how loud the place is. It is hard to have a conversation and difficult to hear the waitress.

The chicken was warmish, the potatoes room temperature, and there were about 4 slices of cucumber that had been marinated in vinegar (think cukes &onions flavor). They were good but I didn’t want that flavor on my honey dusted chicken, plus the moisture made the otherwise crispy skin soggy. Not the best. Maybe put that on a side plate.

The server kept asking if I was finished, when I clearly had only eaten 1/2 my meal. She then tried to take my plate even though there was an untouched leg and a good bit of my side still on the plate. Ummm…offer a box.

Halfway through my meal, I sat for at least five minutes with no drink, which wasn’t very impressive. She was providing more attentive service to the tables around me.
Having been a waitress, my tips start at 30% since I usually dine alone (to make up for the fact they’re not getting tipped for 2 people) and go up or down based on service. This girl ended up with 22%.

My family had a remarkable experience at Tupelo Honey. My wife and I arrived early, while our three adult boys scootered around the lovely city of Charlotte. After enjoying a wonderful cocktail, relaxing at the bar, then took a stroll through the city, to return in time to be seated with the "boys". The service was excellent as we ordered appetizers, drinks, and our meals. Once the food began to arrive we realized what a special treat we were in for. Everyone raved about their food and tastes of each were shared. I ordered the meatloaf with two sides, the meatloaf and sauce were the best I have ever had! The fresh side salad with pecan vinaigrette was the most enjoyable salad I have had. The only regret of the evening was that no one had room for desert. Rest assured we will be visiting again. Thanks to all! Ron Siemienski and family

Recent supply chain issues have created many challenges for restaurants. Unfortunately, it has become normal for restaurants to not receive all of the product that they order. I hate to hear that these issues earned us a 1 star rating from you. Please know that our staff is always striving to go above and beyond, regardless of any obstacles, to give our guests the best expereince possible.

We went to Tupelo Honey for lunch after receiving a birthday coupon for $20 off our bill. I am a member of their email club and was super excited to receive this offer. We made our reservation online and the only difficulty was finding a parking spot. This location is in Uptown Charlotte and does not have it's own parking lot. Street parking and local garages are the only options- leave extra time to find a spot!
We were greeted and the host sat us immediately. Our server, Isabelle, let us know that the kitchen was out of a few items and gave us time to look over the menu. Drinks and food came out super fast! We ordered the honey dusted fried chicken with a side of fries and biscuits. Everything tasted fresh and delicious! We finished our meal and were able to pay on our phone to reduce contact. We appreciated that everyone was wearing masks and following covid guidelines. We really enjoyed the meal and will definitely be back!

Went here before a Hornets game to get some fried chicken and a few drinks. Two of us had the white meat Honey Dusted chicken which had an underwhelming amount of flavor. One of us had the Sriracha chicken which was much better and would come back for. Our server was great but the restaurant was out of quite a few ingredients (Cauliflower, Shrimp and waffles) which was a bummer because we were looking forward to the chicken and waffles and the shrimp linguine. The sides of Mac and cheese were okay but one of us had the grits and thought they were delicious. Overall not a bad place to grab a drink but the food was mostly average.

The food was okay, nothing that I would have to go back and eat at again, and have to wait over 2 hours for. The air was blowing so strong that our food was cold as soon as was placed our table.

The servers were extremely inattentive to guests. The food was also very lack luster- cold, maybe because it sat in the window for someone to pick it up. The restaurant was not busy as there were several tables open and small parties at the tables that were occupied.

For a place that required a reservation on New Years Eve, it really fell short of my expectations. $60 for an either inexperienced or just terrible waitress, undercooked food, in a setting that was comparable to a truck stop Dennys, all in uptown Charlotte.

We were surprised when we had an 8:15 reservation that we were told the kitchen closes at 9:00 and when we finished eating our main course at 9:05, we were not asked if we'd like dessert but rather, if we'd like our check (as they were cleaning the windows right behind our table. Aside from this oddity, the food was good (not great) and the specialty cocktail didn't seem to have much alcohol. But the value was very good in total, the service was fine, and the ambience okay. Avocado Toast was outstanding. Not sure we'll return but we would recommend to others and suggest to perhaps order differently than we did (we had the Shrimp & Grits and the Blackened Mahi Mahi).

They didn’t have their act together on this trip. Service was severely lacking our coffee cups were never refilled for over 30 minutes. Brought 4 biscuits for 6 people 3 got the wrong food 3 got cold food. Surprising because in Greenville we have always had great food and service.

They were out of a few things that we really wanted. Fried green tomatoes, lemonade and crackling potatoes. Ordered the 1/2 chicken, Mac & cheese and crispy Brussel sprouts. Sides were awesome but the chicken not so much. When the chicken thigh is dry there's a problem. Chicken had no flavor, maybe an off day. I will go again and order the same thing again to see if it's an issue with the food or just an off day.
