Had a great last meal before quarantine! The spicy fried cauliflower was delicious as were the complimentary biscuits! I got a breakfast combo which was a great deal, and I especially recommend the sweet potato pancakes. The lavender limeade fizz was also a refreshing and non-alcoholic alternative to a mimosa. Our server was pleasant and very clean given the health situation, I'm glad we could provide some business at this time. Will be returning, particularly for happy hour deals!

I appreciate the manager accommodating my seating needs without missing a beat. AND we had THE BEST SERVER EVER! Shay was absolutely a pleasure to have serve us. I was so impressed I remembered her name, that's how excellent she was! We'll be asking for her again when we come back. Tupelo is one of our new favorite places.

Biscuits and jam are amazing! The menu had a variety of different combinations. I was surprised by our service. We had to ask her for many things that should have just been on our table. If we are in the area we would try again.

We were here for brunch. We both had the combo 3 items for $11. Their sweet potato pancakes are outstanding, as are the bacon and eggs. Biscuit with homemade blueberry compote. This place is wonderful. Nicely decorated too.

Service is always poor at TH. Reservation was made with Open Table and I requested a booth but was given a table at the front door by the host. Lots of booths available as were other tables.

After being sat at our table, and waiting 15-20 minutes with no waiter, I got up and asked the hostess if she would ask someone to wait on us. 15-20 minutes later our drinks arrived and another 15-20 minutes the $35 special for 4 arrived. 2 wings with nothing but breading, 2 thighs and 2 breasts. Very little meat. The mashed potatoes, Brussel Sprouts and salad were ok. I suppose for $35 you get what you pay for.

Service was great! My server was Alexis and she was pleasant, very knowledgeable about the menu items and kept us informed when she felt like we had been waiting for awhile. Food was delivered cold but Alexis returned cold plateand had fresh food brought back to the table. Manager and other staff were very lively and fun as they passed our table. I'll be back again ;)

The food was excellent. Service was also very good. The only complaint is that the noise level is much too high. Otherwise myself and my guests enjoyed it very much and will most likely come back again. Thank you.

First of all had to wait 10 minutes and then get up to go ask someone to serve us water and drinks.

Appetizers ok.
Grilled oysters: bland,
fried green tomatoes and grits: MEH,
fried pickles: yummy.

Cocktail, fancy lemon drop:good.

Sweet potato pancakes: yummy, fried chicken on top: very dry ruined the dish.
Beef ribs: over cooked and sauce slapped on top to cover.
Pork shoulder too spicy or not good spicy,even for guest who enjoys spicy
Salmon: fine

They phone in their southern cooking. Not consistent. No care at all or commitment to the ingredients the seem to take care to procure.

Really wanted to like this place. Will never go back.

The restaurant was severely understaffed. Despite making a reservation, we waited nearly thirty minutes past our reservation time. The service was very slow because there simply were not enough servers and were observed how slowly tables were turned over due to lingering guests and the hostesses serving as busters. Our food was room temperature, which was also a disappointment. We live in Arlington and we’re really looking forward to finally making it to Tupelo Honey, but it was a lackluster experience overall.
