    The service was great, the food was delicious, and the drinks were amazing. They didn't have it on the menu, but if you ask they will bring you a bottle of champagne with 4 bottles of juice if you have several people who want mimosas. I would definitely go back.

    Food was so tasty though it took 45 minutes to get to our table. Our server Alana was excellent and the biscuits were out of this world. This is one of our go to places when we want a good meal.

    The food was amazing. I suggest trying the Ginger Beer. It is non-alcoholic and brewed by them. It was amazing. The crispy Brussels sprouts were some of the best I’ve ever had. If you like goat cheese the polenta is wonderful. I tried the fried cauliflower entree and I would go back for it again. The biscuits were good, but not the best I’ve had, however everything else was top notch. The waitstaff was friendly and informative. They really helped me decide what to order. They even gave me some extra options for dipping sauces. I will definitely go back next time I’m in Raleigh.

    Arrived at their last seating for the evening so it was fairly empty and quiet. Service, food and drinks were all delicious. Especially the biscuits with blueberry jam & the fried chicken. Would definitely recommend for crowd pleasing southern comfort food.

    It's obvious this is a chain restaurant that's not especially well-managed. I probably won't go back. My friend and I had a reservation last night and the hostess greeted us with the question, "Are there still just 2 of you?" I wanted to tell her that no, there are 3 now that I picked up a homeless person off the street. LOL. I've eaten here 5 or 6 times but the last 2 have been particularly disappointing. The last 2 meals I've ordered have been very short on meat. Once I got a single chicken thigh in a chicken dish and the last time, I expected some roast beef that turned out to be roast beef shavings in polenta. The server was very friendly, but she was obviously either new or untrained. Our table was swimming in empty dishes when she brought more food and I had to ask her to clear the empty plates. Not a good deal for the money and the service doesn't make up for the lack of food.

    We normally eat later but were in the are so decided to eat at 6:00. The place was not crowded, food was very tasty and large servings. The restaurant got more busy after 7:00 but seemed to still have room for walk-ins.

    We arrived early after running afternoon errands. It was around 4:30 and of course the place was quiet. We were escorted to a quiet table in the bar area. Our server was also the bartender and she did a terrific job juggling her duties. There were 2 or 3 occupied tables and probably 6 people at the bar. Our server never skipped a beat. We both ordered the biscuits for a cause (always delicious) and the original honey dusted dark meat chicken. I had the Parmesan and rosemary potatoes cracklin and my husband had the same with the brussel sprouts as a side. Everything was outstanding. Our meals arrived hot and delicious, in fact it was so good, I went over and complimented the kitchen staff. You might say it was because the restaurant was quiet but we’ve all had less than meals even in a quiet restaurant. I think they have a dedicated room staff who cares about the product they deliver. Bravo, Tupelo Honey, job well done!

    Tried this place again hoping this time would be better but, the avocado toast is just not worth 15 dollars the pickled onions were gross both times, the salad is weird and the dressing is off and the Saracha honey drizzle is just not it. The eggs were over cooked. Just no. Don’t recommend this dish they should redo the concept.

    I have really enjoyed Tupelo Honey - both the original in Asheville and the newer location in Raleigh - for many, many years - but it feels like the quality of the food has declined at the Raleigh location. The service was still great, but the restaurant was very crowded, very noisy and a bit disappointing. I ordered a salad with grilled shrimp, and I couldn't even eat the shrimp because they were barely cooked at all - certainly not grilled. It looked like they were raw, with some seasoning sprinkled on top. How did the kitchen allow that plate to go out to a customer? I hope they can regain the sparkle that they used to have - it would be a shame to see Tupelo Honey circling the drain.

    Food was good. Restaurant was nice. We got there a bit early and was told we could not wait at the bar. So we just stood there waiting. When we were seated there were no customers even at the bar. Just odd??? As I said the food was good but the proportions were very small. Went back to our hotel and ate again.

    Entrees were very good, Hot chicken and waffles and shrimp & grits. Hot chicken was perfectly spiced and Shrimp & Grits had good portions. Ordered appetizers, but did not receive prior to entrees. Very solid Southern kitchen restaurant.
