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.

The food wasn’t the level of quality we expected. My French toast was cold and hard on the edges, had to dig to the middle of the bread to be able to eat it. My husbands chicken was super dry looking and tasting. Spent over $50 and immediately placed a to go order somewhere else when we left.

I had no idea what to expect with this being my first time venturing to this restaurant or dining out after COVID-19 period. My friend and I wanted brunch with mimosas and that's it but the food, drinks, and atmosphere surpassed both our expectations. I'm glad we made reservations. Our waiter, Taylor, was the most kind and very funny. The banana pudding pancakes were so delicious. Also, the crackling potato appetizer was amazing. I usually try not to go to chain restaurants because they stop putting the love in the food but not Tupelo. I will definitely be back to try more.

Service could have been better. He didn't know our questions. Music was too loud. Servicer didn't remove dirty dishes. Asked how hot chicken was with macaroni waffles. He said not hot. It was too spicy for me

Jermika, Thank you for your feedback! We prepare all our menu items from scratch and strive to make everything to order for our customers. We know ticket times were a bit longer on Sunday due to a combination of a very busy restaurant and strong takeout sales. Sunday was our busiest day since we have reopened for dining room service. We are excited to see such a strong repose for our food and are making the necessary adjustment to make sure food comes out in a timely manner.

Tupelo Honey was an unplanned gem of a brunch location! My party visited Virginia Beach originally wanting to go to another spot for brunch, but upon being told the 1.5 hour wait time, we quickly went online to find a new destination. Tupelo Honey was one of the first results, and we’re so glad it was. We easily made a reservation for 4 with OpenTable, and our time slot was 20 minutes from the time we made it. We were seated as soon as we arrived, with a better table than we expected. Our server was lovely, although I don’t remember her name. The drinks were amazing and the food was divine. Definitely go for the “Pink Is The New” Mimosa, the potato cracklins, and the chicken & biscuits. 10/10, will most definitely be back.

One of the best servers ever! The greens were WAY too sweet, tasted like they had been cooked with candied bacon. Also, the green beans were greasy. Not buttered, but with some other kind of oil. Unlike the greens, which we sent back, they were edible.

The food was ok. We had the blackened catfish serving was very small for a $20 entree. The fried chicken was good, especially with sweet spicy sauce. Collards were amazing, very accurate southern taste. Mac & cheese was bland & thrown on plate. The presentation of the food could have been a lot more neater and put together. 3.5/5 rating. Will be returning to try brunch options.

Food was amazing!!!! The music in the restaurant was a little loud. Also, not sure what was happening with the tables, but they were very sticky--almost as if the varnish on them was coming off--could be from cleaning products. Overall excellent experience. Our waiter was fantastic.

Was excited to try this place for the first time!!! Have heard great things about it, but it definitely under delivered. Our appetizers were down right cold, not even luke warm. The food overall just left something to be desired. We sat really close to the bar where people kept coming to pick up their food for to go orders or even grub hub type orders. He was rude to more than one of the people picking them up, not very pleasant when you are sitting there trying to enjoy your meal. Not sure we will come back.

The food was not what we expected as far as the flavor. Foods that are meant to be salty, for us, tasted more sweat and the drinks were extremely sweet like candy. Would have been nice to taste some alcohol. Our waitress was fantastic. Great ambiance.

My Guy & I decided 2 try this place 4 Restaurant week. The food was nothing less than stellar. From the tenderness & flavoring of the Pork all the way 2 the scrumptiousness of the Pecan pie. He wants 2 order greens 4 Thanksgiving from them
& he is a Chef lol. The waiter was informative & funny. The 1 thing I would say they could improve is the Sangria. The taste was more like a mimosa, however it was happy hour thus I still gave them 5 stars.

I went to Tupelo Honey with my parents and fiancé to enjoy a brunch catching up. Our waiter had a wonderful personality, reading the energy of our crowed immediately, such a kind, hilarious gentleman named Jake. He even survived my dads horrible jokes! We ordered Fried Green Tomatoes as an appetizer, phenomenal. I love friend green tomatoes. My fiancé got the chicken and biscuits, which I tasted, so amazing. Definitely made from scratch everything on that dish. I had split two dishes with my mom, so we could sample. We got the avo toast with sriracha honey , and the eggs Benedict with Avocado. So great! The menu was refreshing and diverse. My dad got the meatloaf , with the fries. He thought it was wonderful. I tried everyone’s food and loved it all. Will be coming again , soon !
