Tupelo Honey is one of my favorite restaurants, and I always make it a priority to stop in when I’m in town. I highly recommend visiting Tupelo Honey whenever possible!

Service was fair. Nothing above and beyond. Two food items had to be sent back... over cooked greasy chips and undercooked beans. The chef was defense and nothing was taken off our bill. The wine list wasn’t accurate and the server handed us a post in handwritten note and said to pick something. No specials were shared either and the music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk. I felt bad for the server who was fairy nice but would not return here. It was not worth the quality at all. A shame since the location is great.

Met up with my MIL here for their Shrimp and Grits and we’re never disappointed! The biscuits are amazing along with their homemade jam and avocado bread as an appetizer! Plus, we used the OpenTable app and beat the lunch crowd!

OMG!!!!!!
What a wonderful place for yummiest southern food we ever tried.
The food was delicious and plantifull, the service is warm, friendly and efficient, the ambiance is interesting, cozy and relaxing, and the value is unbelivable.
Highlights: Bloody Mary, Fried pickles and okra, Shukshucka, complimentary bisquits,Seasonal specials.
We dream about coming back ASAP.

Had a lot of fun dining there and the entire group was excited about the menu. However, the dishes fell short of expectations. The food was good, but not as tasty as we had hoped for. We were a group of 10 so we tried almost everything on the menu and each fell short of expectations.

The hot biscuits they serve are wonderful and our waiter was patient with such a large group and separate checks.

We dinned outside which was wonderful.

Although the food is quite good, this is the second time I have gone to the restaurant and the second time the business has been extremely slow. Not sure how long it takes to get a drink from the bar, or food from the kitchen, but two times of waiting means I will likely go elsewhere in the future..

We really enjoyed our experience! Our server was great, and he even had a trainee and he made sure to let his trainee do a lot and learn with him. The food was wonderful. I thought the Bloody Mary's were a little overpriced for the size of the glass, but it was a good Bloody Mary so I cant complain :)

Fun place for our group. The cocktails were delicious and the food was exactly what we were hoping for- a break from the seafood houses typically found around the beach area. Their fried pickles were especially notable.

Service was great... Not impressed with their sangria... I make better. The fried pickles were a pile of grease and the fried green tomatoes came out waaaaay too quickly to be made to order and for 10$, there wasn't even a full tomato on the plate. For the price of an entree, I would have expected a cloth napkin. My friend went the next day with her husband and they sat them under a leak from the ceiling.... She had drips on her plate... Tacky.

Stopped by for a cold drink and snack before visiting the Lego Americana Exhibits. Sat outside, and really enjoyed the ambiance even tho it's on the sidewalk and a busy street. It was late Sunday afternoon, apparently a pretty quiet time if you want to go then. Had a strawberry sangria made w Brandy.... different, creative. Also a cute little Mason jar of pimiento cheese with their potato chips that probably suffered from the humidity a bit. A little less than crisp and a little thick with air pockets between. Menu said tricolor carrots with it for dipping,, but it was one small white carrot cut in thirds lengthwise. Not much flavor. I think celery would compliment the pimiento better in taste and color. Really enjoyed the patio, terrific server, spent $16 and the server brought us 2 complimentary ginormous buttery biscuits. It's a fun place, clever menu, a little pricey with huge portions (share), easy parking on the street if you're lucky (only 2hours), and in the free garage by the restaurant, no time limit. Have to drive into it from the treet behind it the restaurant building, but then you walk out and the restaurant is right there. Nice in bad weather since you're not outdoors long. If you have the staff take photo, do it outdoors or near the waiting area upfront where it's brighter lighting. In front of the Tupelo sign indoors is too dark and shadowy. A photo up front turned out great.

Best fried chicken I’ve ever had, sorry dad, the gravy paired nicely. The side salad was meh, but the baked mac&cheese was wonderful, my wife’s mashed potatoes was tasty as well. Will be visiting again.

I was disappointed after having been to the original location in Asheville- the creole dip was WAY to spicy- bacon “jam” was WAY to spicy and the lavender martini was a little skimpy.
For $40 I expect a more substantial meal....especially when it only included a drink, appetizer (both on special) and a sandwich.

Everything on the menu did not seem appetizing and was extraordinarily expensive. Maybe I'm just a fool, but I had no idea what some of the ingredients even were. I would not recommend if you are not a "sophisticated" individual. or if you don't exactly have money falling out of your pockets.
