I've been here several times now and I just don't feel that this is a good value for the money. The food is way over priced and is just okay. I ordered the breakfast brunch and my eggs were cold and tough. You get two whole pieces of bacon and about five small potatoes for around $12.95. I was done in 5 minutes. Drinks are also overly priced. I ordered a Bold Rock cider and you get a "half pour" for $5.50. If you do the math I guess a full 12 oz bottle would run you $11. I suggest improving the quality and portions of your food and bring your prices way down. What you get for the money is just not worth it. Save your money and go somewhere else.

As always the food was amazing! Highly recommend the Avocado Betty...The coffee is some of the best I've had in any restaurant. Cody was our server and was very attentive and even came back before entering our order to make sure I did not want to make a special cook request on my eggs. He encouraged me that it would be no trouble to accommodate my request and the meal was fabulous! Kudos to such an engaging young man. Definitely a favorite restaurant for us.

Four of us went to Tupelo Honey Saturday evening prior to attending the 8p performance of Cinderella at Sandler Center, Virginia Beach. We included that information in our reservation so our server would be aware of our time constraints. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server was attentive and efficient without making us feel rushed at all. We all ordered full entrees which arrived at the table in a very timely manner. My husband, who is very particular about ribs, enjoyed his half-rack so much, he’s ready to go back for more. From the warm biscuits, the honey, the delicious entrees and excellent service, we all agreed it was one of our best dining experiences in some time. Thank you so much. And we have season tickets at Sandler Center, so we have more occasions to dine at Tupelo Honey yet to come.

The food was pretty good, but I did not believe it was worth the cost. The presentation of the food was the best part. I reserved a table via OpenTable and stated my choice of table. Upon arrival, I was informed my preference was not available. Thought it was interesting that a reservation does not ensure any particular type of seating. It took a few minutes to get seated as the staff was determining where we could sit.

The food was really good as always. i think “blackened” is a style of cuisine i don’t enjoy but my date loved his DARK crispy brussels so it’s not a complaint. drinks are stellar and strong so be careful if you think one Orange Whip won’t mess you up (it will) . extra stars for the extra whip cream on the side

The crispy Brussels Sprouts were incinerated. The sauce on the meatloaf was excellent, but the meatloaf more resembles a hamburger. “All day brunch” doesn’t include any Benedict dish because there are no poached eggs after 4 pm.

We like Tupelo Honey, but only for their snacks, Shakshuka and mostly nice service. Unfortunately whenever we've tried to order something else (from sandwiches to entrees) the taste of the food always was disappointing. This time it was their "Famous" Honey dusted chicken, which was dry and hard as a rock with not even a hint of juiciness, and the same gluey tasteless mashed potato in the side.
After this experience we doubt it's worth to come back.

Made a reservation, asked for outside table in comments. Get to the restaurant they tried to sit us at a tiny table inside where the door to the patio was literally 3 inches from my back. I said can we not get outside? The hostess said oh its an 1.5 hour wait for out there its all reserved. I looked out and there was 2-3 tables taken. One was a huge party. I said I made a reservation for outside, she then grabbed two menus and sat us out at a wobbly table. Out waitress came out. Her nails were so incredibly dirty i mean they were black. She was blonde, very skinny id describe as an Olsen twin look alike but her nails were so bad. The wife ordered a happy hour mimosa, when it came out it looked and tasted like pure orange juice. I guess because they’re non happy hour are really expensive so they cheat you on the alcohol for the HH ones. We ordered and i got the build your own combo. I wanted the chorizo, bacon, and 2 orders of eggs. When the food came i looked at my plate and was like wtf, $13 for this? I inquired about the eggs and she said she forgot to put in two sets of eggs and that was only one order. Eggs were dry, so dry and overcooked. Chorizo was the same dry and overcooked small pieces as well and tasted overcooked. Not sure why we go back because the place is trying to hard to be some hipster spot. Seriously last time were going. Oh and the 1.5 hour wait? I think everyone who out there left and they sat 3 more tables so 4 including us and they left the huge party table unbussed for the whole time we were out there.

Just okay. The place itself is adorable. But the food is just okay. I ordered Eggs Benedict and the hollandaise sauce was god awful. My husband didn’t receive his side order and my friend didn’t receive hers either right away. We had to ask the waiter numerous times. The drink selection is nice, and the mimosas are good.

The atmosphere was nice. We had a party of nine, 7 adults and 2 kids. It took longer than expected to get our drinks and then there was an additional longer lag for the waitress to come take our order. No sense of urgency, especially since it was not really busy. The southwestern omelette was not that good. The avocado was not ripe so it was chunky. The sweet potato pancakes were delicious.
