Southern
Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home. We craft brunches, lunches and suppers that bring family and friends around the table and allow for conversations and cocktails to linger longer than usual. Always scratch-made, always responsibly-soured, and always Southern.

Our Dog Friendly Patio is available year-round. Ask our host about our special dog menu! The patio is covered from the elements, but does not have heaters.
Reservations recommended.

This was my first time there and picked this place because it had good reviews. I tried the appetizers biscuits for a cause with blueberry jam and it was really good and received two big and so soft biscuits. I also had the shrimp and grits entree and it was delicious. I was happy because I had enough shrimps to go with the portion of grits. Our server was was really nice and we received fast and attentive service. I would like to go back again to try other dishes.

I celebrated my Birthday at this restaurant and they accommodate my large party with no problem. David was so helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. Our hostesses Tazh and Shay had impeccable customer service and made our experience pleasurable. This was my second time visiting and it won’t be the last. My friends and family from New York are already wanting to come back and visit.

We had a lovely evening! Wish there was a mashed potato option and more drizzle choices for the fried chicken. Other than that the food was great! Our server Jonathan was amazing!

Ordered an $11 coffee and by time I got it (waited almost 2.0 min for it) the coffee was cold and my husbands Bloody Mary was not filled all the way and watered down. The food was decent but the portions were so much smaller than past visits. My kids pancakes were bigger than mine. Not worth what we paid.

The food tasted ok but made both of us feel terrible. Set in about 15 min after we left. Didn’t feel right until the next day.

I got the Cobb salad and my daughter got the chicken sandwich.

I won’t likely go back.

Service was a bit slow, could’ve been a bit more attentive. The restaurant was busy as we heard it typically is. The food, was bland, it was definitely missing something as I had ordered the Mac and cheese waffle with hot chicken, wife ordered the fried chicken BLT which again was also bland, food definitely needed some seasoning for sure. The highlight of the meal that saved this review was my daughters Sweet Potato Pancakes from the kids menu, the flavor was amazing, wish I could’ve just ordered that alone! Overall, there is definitely better options out there as this was just a mediocre place with a bunch of hype.

2 families visiting Va Beach for the weekend. We found Tupelo based on the excellent online reviews and were excited to try the modern twist on Southern cuisine. Sadly, we were very disappointed in the food.

The cheeseburger my Son ordered medium was served as a bone overdone plain burger. My BIL chicken sandwich was also over cooked and dry. The creole shrimp pasta tasted metallic like the canned tomatoes. The best part of the meals were the house biscuits that were comped.

The hostesses and our poor server were lovely.

Some of their gluten free options were unavailable and the staff was not educated about their other options. I ended up with the cobb salad which was large but just meh. The bacon on it was gritty and had almost no flavor, just an unappealing texture. Husband's food was standard diner quality.

The ambience was cute and brunch like. The food was delicious but the drinks were mediocre. We waited until happy hour to get some drinks but the prices were a little more expensive than usual and the glasses were tiny. Besides that, it was a good experience.

Tupelo Honey has a great atmosphere and friendly, well trained servers. The drinks are very popular. Mixed feelings about the food which can be heavy and sweet. The grits are very lumpy and funky with the goat cheese. The collards are too sweet. The crackling potatoes are too hard and the mac and cheese was over cooked. Yet, we ate everything and enjoyed ourselves and our server Anna B.
