    The food was incredible, so many great options. I loved the spice in the salmon dish and the whipped butter that came with the biscuit appetizer was fabulous.

    Great eatery in Uptown, especially if you are looking for a casual place with southern style food. That being said, their menu does include some non-southern surprises! The fried chicken (in any of the meal options) is awesome and the biscuits are also a must. Service was perfect. Great experience!

    The restaurant was pretty good. Food came out too fast and the meats for both dinners were cold: meatloaf and chicken. The sides were hot; but it is important that all items, especially the meat is hot.

    We did the prefix menu spend 130$ for 2 people after tip they make you share a salad lol and the salad is Romain and dressing that’s it. The food was on par with a chili’s felt fake inside had their version of an old fashion it was fine. Just underwhelming and expensive this mid range restaurants are in trouble if they can’t offer better food and experience for the price we pry won’t be back here there was nothing special about our dinner and I can just spend less for the same.

    It took an hour for our food to come out, and when it did come out it wasn’t good at all. We had, literally, 5 minutes left to eat before we had to leave. They kept saying the kitchen was backed up, but we noticed several people who came in much after us and got their food long before us. The restaurant also wasn’t very busy, and we made a reservation so they knew we were coming (there was 6 of us). The appetizer came out so late (they did comp it though, thankfully) but we think they didn’t fire our entrees until after the apps dropped, which we told them we didn’t have time for. We didn’t get any refills, and they push you to pay by QR code - which we didn’t have time to do because we were scarfing our meal down as quickly as possible. One lady in our party did use the QR code and it wasn’t disclosed that it would charge an extra 25 cents. It’s a minor fee, but they want you to pay that was as a convenience for their staff and it costs extra? Give me a break. This was a terrible experience and I won’t be back to this location.

    I booked a reservation here on Valentine’s Day because OpenTable said they had an event. Our table was ready 15 minutes early so we had to rush. The service was good but there was no event, they didn’t even have music playing and the lights were all the up at 7 pm. No ambiance.. The chicken was so dry that the Siracha honey couldnt even save it. I was super disappointed honestly. I love honey and the concept of this restaurant but this place just seems like they don’t care about the actual dining experience or the food.

    We had made reservations a few days prior with our family that was visiting from out of state. We were so excited to eat here because of their amazing reviews. We got to the restaurant about 10 mins prior to our reservations at 8 pm with our party of 6. We waited about 25 mins for our table to be ready. They walked us back to our table and it was set for 5 people. They then pulled up a chair and told us it was a table for 6, when it clearly was not. The staff then got super rude with us because we were upset. There was no way 6 of us could even sit comfortably at this round 5 person table in the middle of the restaurant. They were not accommodating at all. We pointed to two open tables that could clearly fit our party but they said they had other reservations. Worst experience ever. We left and went to another restaurant down the street. They lost out on a huge check. Would not recommend this place to anyone. Horrible customer service.

    Our first time there. The food choices were ok. We opted for the Valentine's experience. The shrimp & grits were fine. The half chicken was barely warm and the brussel sprouts had no taste. The collard greens were excellent! I will try again to confirm if it was just an off night or not.

    Outstanding brunch experience in downtown Charlotte. In town for a sports tournament. Tupelo Honey was a 3 minute walk from our hotel (Courtyard). Friendly hosts and waitstaff in a pleasant environment. Food was outstanding. Can highly recommend the Honey Sriracha Chicken and Waffles. Menu has several other very creative options I’d love to come back and try out.

    I made a reservation for 4 at the uptown Tupelo Honey where I have eaten before. We were met at the front desk by a stuck up hostess who proceeded to show us to a very small table with 4 chairs, despite the fact that there were only 2 other tables occupied in the restaurant. When we asked for a larger table she told us to pick out the table we wanted. (thanks for the help). We ordered the fried pickles (delicious) and then placed one order of fried chicken that was dry and flavorless, one order of the harvest bowl which tasted fine but contained carrots that looked old and lifeless, and two orders of the mahi mahi. The fish was red and looked like salmon although it was supposed to be spicy it had no flavor. One person's salad, which was ordered with lemon vinaigrette arrived with a creamy white dressing. When she asked if that was the lemon vinaigrette she was told yes. It was ranch. Such a huge disappointment as we had eaten here previously and had good food and we were bringing friends who had never been here before. We will not be back.

    Our server/bartender was outstanding. Although we arrived at 7 p.m. on a Sunday, the staff was already preparing to close, sweeping the floors, etc. Our first impression was that the music was too loud. I didn't care for the genre, but I understand I am older and may not be the restaurant's target customer. The food, as usual, was excellent, and we were absolutely happy with that part of the experience. Have a great day.

    We placed an order for the fried chicken with brussel sprouts and less than 5 minutes later, the waitress brought our food out. The food was cold and looked like it's been sitting there for a while. We sent the food back for fresher food, and it took over 30 minutes. I don't think I'll be coming back to this location anymore as I drove all the way from South Carolina.

    Queens feast visit. Fried pickles always taste amazing and the homemade ranch is so good. I took 2 cups home. I had the half fried chicken. It was really tasty. Collard greens had a lil kick but good taste. The Mac and cheese was my least favorite. The nana pudding was so goooodt!! My mom ate the fried green tomatoes with grits and it was very good too! Anastasia was a great server.

    The vibe was very open and inviting, our service person Adam I believe was the name, was totally on top of it, and the food was amazing. The siracha honey chicken and waffles are to die for. My wife is a biscuit and gravy snob, and she loved them here. 5 stars all the way.

    Went for restaurant week. Wed. 6:30p. Restaurant was not busy. Server rushed us and wanted to put entire order in when drinks were served. We chose to wait until appetizers were brought out, then proceeded to order our dinners. Once again, tried to take dessert orders, when placing entrées. We chose to wait. She came back saying they close soon and needed our dessert orders and brought our checks with desserts and two out of three checks were rung up incorrectly. Food was delicious!! 😋

    My husband and I spent the day in Uptown Charlotte. We booked reservations at Tupelo Honey for dinner . Never have eaten there before and it was restaurant week and we love trying new restaurants. We were very happily surprised it was absolutely delicious. We both had the fillet that was on a bed of wonderful herby potatoes and spears of broccolini. Was a very delicious meal with great service would definitely go there again.
