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.

    I was a little upset that my favorite item (cauliflower tacos) has been removed from the menu. It was the only thing that i had on my mind following an outpatient surgery that day. Overall it was still a good outing. Our server was really nice and the weather was perfect for dining outside.

    The Siracha honey chicken and waffles are really good, as is the biscuits and jelly. However, our food came out cold (like refrigeratorcold), we ordered a particular food item, 10 minutes later our server comes over to tell us they were out of that "main" food item (meatloaf). That's really the first food debacle that I've had there, so I'll just chalk it up to "a bad day at the office."

    I hadn’t been in a while. We sat outside and unfortunately the birds were looking for food lol so the ambiance that day wasn’t that great. The service was just ok. I felt like the waitress didn’t have much patience while we were deciding or asking about suggestions. She didn’t check back on us, even for refills. Her facial expressions and body language was clear. It was Fathers Day and brunch so possibly she could have been busy but I felt like I was bothering her. My experiences haven’t been this way in the past though. The food was just ok. The chicken from chicken and waffle didn’t have much seasoning. The pieces were also not a nice portion. the sweet and spicy sandwich was tasty. The fried pickles were good and the waffle was so light and fluffy. Will go again but not in a rush.

    My fiancé and I have been to Tupelo quite a few times and we always love coming for the good vibes and food. We particularly loveee the sweet potato pancakes! They are one of the main reasons that keep us coming back. We have came to Tupelo the past 3 years for Fathers Day and we went yesterday to celebrate as usual and were disappointed to find out there were no sweet potato pancakes being served. I ended up ordering something else on the menu but wasn’t too pleased. Overall we were glad to come to our favorite place but just soo sad to hear our favorite breakfast item wasn’t there for us.

    We went for the brunch and I am the picky eater with vegetarian habits. The fried green tomatoes were excellent, as well as the Brussel sprouts. I heard reports that the bacon is cooked perfectly and they were close to getting eggs over medium perfect. I enjoyed the Ovos benedict and the flavors were outstanding.

    We went for Father’s Day brunch and the food was just okay at best. We could have enjoyed a meal at home just as well. When you pay almost $170 for two adults and two children you expect a little wow factor - the only place we found it was in the $4.00 biscuit appetizer. I’d go back for those but would likely make that appetizer my brunch. Husband/ father said grits were too thick, but he enjoyed the Fathers Day bourbon cocktail.

    First time eating here for Father’s Day. My over medium eggs were hard when they arrived and when they made me another order they were over easy. The food was overpriced for the amount of food received and the taste of everything was just so-so. After my first impression I don’t care to go back.

    We went for Father’s Day. They didn’t have any specials but had a nice menu. We started with the biscuits and the fried green tomatoes and grits-very delicious! I ordered the chicken and waffles and the chicken was very bland and the waffles were cold. I sent it back to the kitchen and the waiter didn’t give me a hard time about it. My husband enjoyed his southwest scramble. We probably won’t return.

    Enjoyed our dinner at Tupelo. Biscuits..huge and amazing! Cauliflower app also delicious! I had the honey dusted fried chicken. It was really good but chicken breasts can get a little dry, suggestion maybe give a ramekin of honey to dip the meat. )Esp since it's like the namesake:)) Unfortunately a very large party got seated next to us and I never got to ask for some. The Mahi Mahi was a hit with my daughter and we shared sides and they were all delicious like the potatoes the best tho:) Southern food is just sooo good and glad we came to Tupelo Honey.

    Good service. Nice and clean. Classic Egg Bennie was just not all the good. One egg was broken and under cooked. The Biscuit under the ham and eggs was to soggy. It was like eating dough. We do like the restaurant and the folks that work there. Brian the manager came by to say Hi. Time is tough for everyone in this Business. We have been going to this Tupelo since the day it opened here in Virginia Beach. We'll be back. Oli Miolla
