No TP in women’s bathroom and there were paper towels all over the floor. It was very cold in the restaurant.

Enjoyed lunch with my wife and parents. Had a small mishap with the food and was promptly given a replacement dish with a slice of cheesecake, both on the house. Our server Nicole was outstanding and attentive. It’s certainly hard to beat the 4 for $12 breakfast but the Fried Chicken and Biscuits will definitely be a do over.

Got there first there in the morning. We were the first to arrive. It took too long to get our breakfast which was a disappointment. I had the breakfast bowl which was 80% grits, and tasteless. My wife had the French toast, (only 3 half slices) another 2 were brought 10 minutes after! The sage sausage looked liked a meatball. Very expensive for a terrible meal.

Ever since they got new management or new chefs, the food isn’t nearly as good. The biscuits weren’t fully cooked. My pancake was good until I saw more uncooked portions. It was my mother’s first time and she wasn’t at all enthused. It’s mediocre at best.

I made a reservation and took my Mother for breakfast. We were seated at a small table right next to the kitchen. I asked for a booth away from the kitchen. Although there were several open, I was told those booths were for other guests. At the table we were seated at, it was chaotic and loud the entire time with servers going back and forth from kitchen. Didn’t make for a nice conversation. Food was cold when received and waiters were to busy to check in on us. The entire experience was bad and I won’t being going back!

I are here 2 months ago with colleagues on a business trip and had the shrimp and grits with egg. It was so good I made it a requirement that we return. This time was an utter disappointment. The shrimp were not the meaty gulf shrimp I remember, but rather the cheap, frozen type that tasted like the artificial plumping and preservative compounds; the sauce was watery; the blistered tomatoes were raw and cold; the grits had little flavor; and the bread was rock-hard stale.
Service is alright, but was not very attentive either time I visited.
On the positive side, the fried green tomatoes, fried okra, and banana pudding were all good.

We had a show to attend immediately after dinner. Our waitress did an awesome job ensuring that we got served and checked out in time. The food was excellent and the noise level low so we could have a conversation. I'll be back!

Good service, the only thing is their gluten free bread option, that the only option they have is a sandwich loaf and we were not informed of before ordering it, for a burger, it was a little bit awful.ñ, other than that the experience great as usual at this restaurant

The other reviews were right! This place is cold, and the food came out barely above room temperature. The butter on my trout could barely melt. Perhaps we’ll give this place another shot in the summer- but definitely not again in the fall/winter. We were uncomfortable and made this a quick dinner. BBQ spring rolls were delicious, though!

Food was good, as always, but service was incredibly slow. Never had our waters refilled + had to go to the bar to get our own bottle of wine.

We had a very special waitress named Kimberly. She provided the best service ever. She went over and above what would be expected. I gave a big hug when we left.

Our waiter was nice but he seemed to be spread a bit thin. The food was just okay. I heard good things and decided to try it but it didn’t live up to my expectations. I’ll give it another go before I completely write this place off.

My husband, newborn, and I met friends of ours to celebrate their engagement. I made reservations and was very happy to see we had been sat at a large booth as requested and the hostess brought a sling for us to hold our newborn’s carrier. It was busy (Saturday brunch) but the service was very lacking. It was at least 10 minutes before a server took our drink orders. From there we didn’t get drinks nor biscuits until after the meal arrived. In fact, we had to ask about our drinks (Bloody Mary’s, coffee, and soda). The server who brought the cocktails wasn’t apologetic; she simply made a remark about how there was only one bartender. At this point, our friend said to not even bring his coffee, as it was so late in the meal. Our server came by once and I had to ask for a refill. The food was amazing as usual but this is the second time the service has been terrible at this Tupelo. For a $120 brunch, I’ve had better service at a cheap diner where I spent $25.

The sweet potato pancakes and fried chicken were incredible. The hot chocolate, however, was cold and gross.

We've been to this Tupelo Honey several times and the service always seems slow. We waited almost an hour for our food and some of it was cold by the time it reached our table. The restaurant also seemed cold inside (it was in the 40's outside... and the AC was blasting). The food was ok, other than the temperature... I had one gin and tonic - over $10! Meh...

We sat next to the windows / balcony on a cold night. I think it might have been warmer outside! We complained about the cold but were told that it was an old building and it was what it was. Walking to the restroom, the rest of the building felt much warmer.

The restaurant was cold so we moved to the bar (where it was marginally warmer). Food was just ok. Server was friendly and helpful.
