We were a party of 6 for breakfast on a Saturday morning. We were the first group in the restautant that morning. It took over an hour for our food to arrive, which was not acceptable. Our server apologized that the kitchen was short handed and the manager was actually helping with the cooking. The food was just ok, however our server did make sure we had full cups of coffee during our long wait for food. It would have been nice if we had gotten butter for the biscuits that arrived while we waited, but our waiter was trying to accomodate a dining room that was quickly filling up and it was hard to find him for the request. This restaurant is in a prime location in the downtown area, and advertises that it is open for breakfast, but it seemed as though they were totally unprepared for their guests, and, while the food is good, it is not great, not worth an hours's wait, and I imagine that we will go elsewhere for breakfast in the future.

We went during Happy Hour to take advantage of the appetizers. The prices were unbelievably reasonable! We thought they would be smaller in size due to the prices being so cheap. We were quite shocked when they brought them to the table as they were surprisingly full size! They were absolutely amazing! You must try the fried pickles! Yeah, don’t knock them til you try them! All of the happy hour appetizers were so yummy! Also, even though they are not on the happy hour menu - you must try the fried green tomatoes over the bed of goat cheese grits! The best ever! Oh! And you MUST try their super yummy Banana Pudding! Oh so good!!!!! You won’t be sorry here!!! I am looking forward to going back soon!

My first time here was Saturday night with my boyfriend. We made an online reservation and we were seated quickly even though we were a bit early. The food was AMAZING. We had the $1 oysters since it was still happy hour and they were delicious! Our server was Jeff and he was so chill & knew a lot about the menu to make suggestions to us. Our food did take a minute to come, but when it did, we enjoyed every bit of it. Will definitely be returning for a second visit & will also be requesting Jeff as our server!

This was our second visit and it was even better than our first. This time we were joined by our great friends. They wanted to join us after we raved about our first time there. It was fate. The same booth and the same delightful server, Grace. We all ate like we were going to the gas chamber. Fried pickles, Mac n’ cheese balls, happy hour drinks and $5.00 burgers! ! It was terrific!
If you haven’t tried it you are really missing out!

I enjoyed my visit at Tupelo Honey. We were having a bridal shower dinner for my sister. The online reservation system wouldn't let me book for 20 people, so booked two parties of 10 not knowing that this would put us in seperate places in the restaurant. Well Tupelo went above and beyond to put my entire group together. Our server Lehman was outstanding with this crazy group of women and just made this event awesome. Lehman made sure everyone was taken care of. There was another young lady helping our second table. I don't know her name but she was great too. I had the blackened catfish, mac n cheese, and collards which was absolutely delicious. I never finish a whole meal whenever I go out, but this time I ate everything on my plate. It was just so good. The portions were good also, not too little or too much. This was my first time at Tupelo, but definitely not my last. Thanks.

Went there for the Town Center Restaurant Week $25.00 dinner selection; Mac and cheese and collard greens were very tasty; buttermilk chicken was meh - very dry

I will give them another try though - looks like a lively and fun place.

First time here for breakfast brunch and we will most definitely be back. Great southern style food. Our server Andrea was attentive, but not overbearing. Pricing is modest. The homemade bisquits are excellent and served with house made blueberry preserves and Toupelo honey🍯.

Opted for the pick 3 breakfast items for $10, wife had sunny side up eggs, Potato Cracklins with Parmesan I had sweet potato pancake short stack, Adluh goat cheese grits and chorizo sausage patty - all very delicious; didn't use syrup on pancakes - didn't want to mask the sweet potato flavor - yum yum

This was the first time at this restaurant. Service was outstanding. For some reason they were out of not one but two of the appetizers. Management came by to apologize and offered a desert for no charge. In addition they gave us a $15.00 credit off our bill for the trouble. I’m going to give them another chance in the future.

This place never disappoints. I haven't had anything I don't like. The biscuits are incredible. Highly recommend the pimiento cheese nachos, cauliflower bites and crispy brussels. For entrees - fish, fried chicken, and sweet tea chicken have all been hits. For dessert, the honey buttermilk cheesecake was fantastic! This is definitely one of my favorite places.

I selected this place because it was my daughter’s 23rd birthday and many of the reviews stated it was great place for a birthday and they even got a dessert for the birthday person. Well we didn’t get a birthday dessert and the server seemed annoyed that I even mentioned it was her birthday. Really disappointing

Service was a little slow. We waited awhile for menus, then drinks, then dinner. The servers handed both drinks and food over the smallish table for four rather than place them in front of each diner, losing stars for service. Warm biscuits were brought with honey and jam- a ‘signature’ (and welcome) dish at this restaurant. My shrimp and grits were very nice, with just a touch of heat. But the lemon lavender martini was overpriced at $13! Cobb salad with chicken was good and the fish fry dinner was dry. The rustic atmosphere was pleasant. Tupelo Honey was no noisier than other restaurants and we were able to converse easily.

This was our first visit. Some things were great like the lavender martini. Some things had potential - like the pecan pie which is just overkill with the chocolate on top as it is buttery and rich and would stand great with just the whipped cream. And some things were a disappointment - the fried chicken was dry except in the thicker parts. We did the restaurant week menu and when I order the fish I was told they might be out only to have the waiter return and tell me they were out of fried green tomatoes - which was what drew me to them in the first place. Our service was spotty - attentive at times but then at the end we waited a long time to get them to pick up the check. Not sure I would return for the $.
