Southern
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.

Service was a bit slow, especially right at the beginning. But I do NOT recommend the crispy Brussels. They were basically deep-fried Brussel sprouts that were not at all what I was expecting. They tasted overcooked... a bit burned, and they disintegrated in my mouth like ashes (assuming that's what ashes do...). The tea was very weak, so if you like a strongly brewed flavor, order something else. Everything else was pretty good.

Loved the ambiance of the restaurant, the staff is very attentive and friendly there. Our waitress Taylor I believe was awesome. I would highly recommend this place as the food was delicious and hot. It was a place I’ve never experience, and I will be coming back.

We had a reservation at 1:30 and had to wait an extra 20 mins to be seated while others who had the same timeframe was able to sit in. Biscuits were over cooked and food came out cold.

The actual server was great, but the host and hostess were absolutely rude. Inconsiderate. Gave away our reservation, and at that didn’t bother to ask if we needed a high chair or booster seat nor did they bother to help with opening the door. I’m pregnant and had two kids in hand and was clearly struggling to get them out of your crowded waiting area. 2/10 Do not recommend.

The food was fresh and tasty! Our server Jenna was attentive and pleasant. Kept our waters full and checked in on us. We both enjoyed our meals. I got the mountain salad and my husband got the chicken and waffles. They were excellent!!

Took 3 tries to get a hamburger cooked correctly and we ended up taking it with us, but outside of that, everything else was delicious and service from the wait staff was great. We sat on the patio and the ambiance was lovely.

We reserved an indoor table over a month ago. When we got there, we were told we booked an outdoor table. When I tried to show the hostess our confirmation, she said they were all booked up from other reservations and she could not help us. My elderly parents had to sit outside and it was cold! No heaters whatsoever. They apparently did this to more than one family, because everyone around us was complaining too. Will not be back! The hostess was incredibly rude and did not handle the situation well at all. I have booked this restaurant several times and the tables are clear, standard, high top, and outdoor. COME ON!!!!!!

I’ve been to this location last year and had a very good experience. I go to Tupelo in northern Virginia all the time. This location this trip and time was horrible. The food was subpar and front was not the nicest. I was really disappointed in the food, I’ve never had that experience before.

Only reason I gave 4 stars for food was because my roasted potatoes were either preheated and warmed or sitting out all day under a warmer. They were not fresh at all and if they were I know they would have been very good because the seasoning was on point. It was hard to chew and just awful. It was my birthday dinner, so I didn't make a fuss because I just wanted a nice quaint dinner date with my husband.

Amazing atmosphere and staff. Appetizers were very bland and overpriced. Needs seasoning. Fried pickles are to thin and lose all flavor in drying process. However main courses were good and would go again.

Made reservations and the greeter was not at all friendly. It was more as a chore to her that we came to dine as if she did not want to be at work. We asked about sitting outside and we were blown off and not explained that it was booked. We attempted 2 weeks prior without reservations even tho the website said walking are welcomed. After this pass visit it will be a very long time before I dine there again.

We had reservations for 1 p.m. on a Sunday and although we were sat right away, we had to get up and go ask where our waitress was. Then she didn't even bring waters until 1:20 p.m., took our actual drink order & we didn't see those until 1:30 p.m.!!
Kitchen took a while to get us our food (after 2:00 p.m.). Service sucked & the food was subpar. Not going back.

Wonderful fried chicken, but not spicy. Drinks are weaker than on the beach, so stick to water or spritzers. Grits were wonderful, and the banana pudding was amazing. And it’s pet friendly! Make sure to reserve ahead of time.
