Couldn't give us the advertised promotion for 35$ family meal because they had no dark meat chicken. Server said because of this we couldn't receive a whole chicken that would've had came with the dinner. The server said the substitute would be 1 breast and 1 wing for a family meal. That was definitely not close to an equivalent substitute. We ended up getting 2 orders of chicken dinners which came with our own serving of a breast and wing, plus 4 sides total for less than 35$ family promotion. Aside from chicken which was very good, food was on the bland side

I had lunch with my mom and friends following my bridal appointment and I couldn't have been more pleased. I had noted on the reservation when I made it that it was a bridal lunch and our super sweet waitress, Whitney, went to the trouble of not only creating an adorable personalized card, but having other people in the restaurant sign it with their own little messages. She then presented it to me with a glass and made me cry haha! The food was great, the drinks were fabulous, and the service could not have possibly been better! Thank you everyone for such a fantastic day!!

Interesting menu - Appalachian salad was really good, and half price on Tuesday was a nice surprise. Ordered chicken salad as a topper, and asked for it on the side, which was wise becuase it wasn't a good combination with the salad - my mistake. The salad was fine without any meat added. I'd definitely order it again. It was an oddly flavored chicken salad, which was good the next day on a sandwich at home, but I added celery and relish, salt the dip itself was unremarkable, but pleasant. Biscuits are nice touch on the table - small, just a few bites, one for each of us was nice... especially since hubs left his, and I had it for breakfast the next morning. :) I find a lot of the flavor combos a little odd for my own taste, but I enjoy the ambiance - just try to get a booth in a corner to avoid noise - maybe it's all the hard surfaces echoing. It's a little noisy - makes conversation a little challenging without elevating your voice. Server was OUTSTANDING. Would be nice to have heaters on the patio for evening dining in the 60's. They have cute cocktails, and the menu wording is quite clever, and I like the southern ambiance, so I'll go back, and keep trying to find a favorite. They also do fundraisers for arts or charity organizations, and I like that support of the local community. Location in Town Center is great. There's a parking garage behind and you walk out not far from the restaurant entrance. Street parking nearby is a lucky chance to catch, and there's a 2 hour limit. It's all free parking in Town Center, though!

Great service, but the food wasn't great. You get plenty, but it's fair at best. Most of what we ordered was over cooked. Great ambiance, but definitely not worth the price. We were there for brunch. We might try it again in the summer to see if lunch is any better.

The food was great, the noise was fine, but the seating really took away from the experience. First of all, the high seating that was delegated in this reservation, was not provided. My wife & I, on Valentines Day, was seated in a corner, at a small table, directly by the kitchen with heavy traffic of waiters & waitresses carrying out food. I was worried the entire night that food would be spilled on me.
Worst than that, I also noticed that 95% of all black people were seated away from the storefront windows, and in the same section area where I was seated, against the wall, in the far corner, next to the kitchen. I watched the rotation of 4 black couples being escorted to this same area, and this experience did not sit well with me. I mean, it was unusually obvious. This little section, full of black people, and the rest of the restaurant, all white people, with a sprinkle here and there of black people?? This really ruined my first experience dining there. I spoke with the manager, & he showed me other seating arrangements that were worse than where I was currently seated. I asked about other empty tables I saw in view, with the response, “It’s already reserved”. Reserved for who? White people? I watched 2 white couples who came in after my wife & I, get better seating than we did. I was offered 2 free appetizers. Really??!! The process for that night, or on busier occasions toward black or minority customers just seemed planned. I was hurt & humiliated that as a black man with a Masters degree, a good job, & 2 companies, still has to experience such obvious racism. I don’t know if this was the doing of the night’s table escorts, the local management, or Executive leadership, regardless, Tupelo Honey has some explaining to do.

Anonymous, On busy days when bookings are complete full we have open table assign all the tables. As reservations are made they system automatically assigns a location. It is very hard for us to adjust or move people once the tables are plotted by the system without bumping another customers reservation. Reservations assignments are never based on race, gender, or creed. We are sorry to feel you felt this way and would love to discuss your experience more with you.

Service is outstanding. Made a reservation so no wait for Valentines Day. Food was under seasoned- specifically the shrimp and grits, and the green beans and potatoes that came with the Hanger Steak. The steak was absolutely delicious. Saving graces for the entire meal was the waiter, the La Vie en Rose drink for Valentines Day, and the Banana Pudding that you simply could not get enough of. Will repeat visit, but perhaps for the brunch or fried chicken instead.

There for Valentine’s Day. Reservation was for 5:45 so maybe too early. Appetizers came out less than 5 minutes after we ordered. They were cold and had to return. My meal came out and the Mac n cheese was cold to touch. Had to return to get something warm. Chicken was also just warm. Waitress was great and very apologetic. They did take the appetizers off the bill as well as my meal which was great not to pay but made a special night not very special. Won’t be back.
