They were very busy the night we chose to have dinner there - but took care of us well. I am appreciative of good service. This is a great place for kids, they are very accommodating. Also, the place is filled with kids.
Our food was underwhelming, but the children's chicken was good. We ordered chicken sandwiches (meh), crispy Brussel sprouts (mushy) and fried Okra (flavorless, but not greasy).
I would not make this a regular dining place for our family.
Great food & service! Love the complimentary biscuits with blueberry jam...so good. I always order the goat cheese grits as a side dish too. Great atmosphere but always busy...I go early when they open and I make reservations, otherwise your chances of getting seated quickly are very slim.
The grilled okra is the best I’ve ever tasted.
Good southern food menu.
Food was alright. Our waiter was good. Probably a little overpriced for the quality. I guess it’s hard when you’ve been to the original!
Nice atmosphere. Great staff. I went there twice in 2 weeks. Breakfast is tasty- pancake meal with bacon, chicken, eggs...yummy. Met a friend one and went on a rainy day alone. I enjoyed both occasions.
So— I was excited to celebrate a mom and son gathering as well as my friend's birthday with another mom and her son for brunch. Despite us having a reservation— we still had to wait over forty five minutes for our table. The person at the front did not attempt to apologize but instead gave me attitude each time I checked in to see when we would be seated. Unfortunately—- that attitude soured my attitude towards the experience. Yes- they offered a “complimentary” order of cold fried okra as a gesture of good faith that was NOT ok.
Our waitress was wonderful— attentive, accurate and accommodating q
As far as the food we ordered—- for the most part— good. Avocado toast, fried green tomatoes with grits, burger with pork, fried chicken sandwich— all delicious. The egg omelet—meh.
Would I go back? Maybe.
We have been here once for dinner and three times for brunch. We were slightly disappointed by dinner, but always wowed by brunch. The bloody Marys are good, shakshuka was amazing, and the biscuits are always a treat. They had options for my kids. I was just disappointed that our reservation was for 6 people, and even though 5 of us came and I noted that we needed a high chair, they put us at a 4 top. My youngest is big enough to eat at the table. So it was terribly crowded, especially when having to move plates and drinks away from the young one. My older child kept complaining that it was too loud, but the noise is always a blessing to drown out the young ones. It did border on being to difficult to hear each other, but brunch is an incredibly popular time here. Book a table at least 2 days in advance or be prepared to wait and hour or 2.
Had great expectations based on Open Table and Yelp reviews, made reservations in advance for my next trip to VA and was looking forward to enjoying their southern style brunch.
Place has quite a nice ambiance - although with extremely 'energetic' noise level - which is the best that can be said for our experience.
Service was abysmal. Starting with server who kept pouring coffee in cup even though it was spilling from themos spout and creating a mess and then handed us three cocktail napkins to clean it with ourselves. Tea delivered without teaspoon, and once requested - soup spoon provided and dipped into the blueberry jam before being handed to us, with an oops. Beverages were warm at best, food arrived cold, without much flavor - and with item missing. Supervisor said he would have missing dish expedited - it never showed, neither did he or our server...
Finally flagged the supervisor down and asked for bill + pointed out side dish never did arrive and no we would not take the rest of food home - as not worth it... just bill pls.
Then he was concerned - spoke to manager and said they would comp the meal. We advised that does not really solve issue of erase the poor experience. Mgr came+apologized+offered to comp next meal, etc . Advised we were totally underwhelmed by the experience and would not return.
Think will stick with Liberty Tavern - where we ended up the last time after an unsuccessful attempt to get table at Tupelo w/o reservation.
Seems like it should be delicious, but
Nice restaurant but the options are not simple...lots of gravies and toppings...different cuisine...dessert was banana pudding...loved it...service was great and manager was awesome...
Amazing southern food! Salmon for dinner and chicken and biscuits for brunch!
Amazing neighborhood find. Very friendly hostess, wait staff and floor manager awesome. Food stellar. Mega mimosa. Just go.
I brought my family to Tupelo Honey for a birthday celebration and our food and our service was outstanding!
Delicious southern comfort food. Our waiter made great recommendations and we enjoyed every bite !
Good chain restaurant. You don't feel like you're eating in a chain while you are there. Good southern style food
Overall, a great experience. Rob, our waiter, was very attentive and gave great food recommendations. We enjoyed everything we ate and drank. Highly recommend and will definitely try to return!
Food and Service was excellent!!
Had a great meal with my sisters. Enjoyed the chicken and pancakes entree. Also, the banana pudding dessert was Delicious! Would recommend reservations for Brunch, because the restaurant is crowded at that time.
We always love coming to Tupelo for brunch. Service is always quick and friendly. Bring back the French Toast!!! :'(
Food was great, but it was quite loud. First time there for brunch and friends’s first time there. Since we were catching up, we did stay a little longer despite it being a bit busy but weren’t hassled to free up the table (though we were sure they wanted to). Overall excellent experience
Loved the Southern food. We were late due to parking but they sat us anyways.
Came for brunch. Nice mix of breakfast and lunch. We got the fried tomatoes with goat cheese grits as an app. 4 large slices but I really couldn’t taste the goat cheese. I had the Appalachian breakfast - homemade sausage, black eyed peas made with sourghum, fried potatoes they call “cracklins” - whatever you order, get these!! The best hash browns ever. It also came with 2 sunny side eggs - the whites were a bit runny but otherwise very good. Hubby had the Betty Benedict- over homemade biscuit. Biscuit will certainly fill you up. Can’t wait to go back!
So-so food with poor service on the night that I visited. The server brought the check even though I was still eating and then started sweeping the floor around us even though it was only 9pm.
I've had two fairly mediocre experiences at Tupelo Honey recently. The food is pretty tasty, but the service is poor. Both times we've found ourselves somewhat abandoned by our server (waiting a long time for drinks, finished dishes left on the table, not being asked if we need anything after the food is served, empty water glasses, etc.). The restaurant is really cute and the menu has a lot to offer, but we aren't in a hurry to go back.
Great! Burger was amazing!
Very friendly staff, courteous manager and hostess. Cool decor in a comfortable atmosphere. Appreciated the nice baby changing area in the restroom! Most importantly, the food is outstanding. Enjoyed chicken and biscuits, the charcuterie board, and the gooey cake mini dessert. The honey is an awesome bonus too! Will definitely come back again.
It was fantastic and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Arlington!
The food was delicious. I had the half fried chicken, greens and baked macaroni and cheese.
But the drinks were the most spectacular thing about this place. You must try the Lavender Flip.
Second time here and still impressed! Missed happy hour specials (booo) but still enjoyed an amazing cocktail with lavender syrup. Tried a new appetizer with pork rinds and collard greens - ooooo weeee it was good! Had to go with our favorite breakfast plate of friend chicken, but want to try the short ribs next time.
This place is amazing.. the food is always good and the customer service is awesome.
The hostess was very rude. We were 10 minutes late but there was maybe 4 tables of people in the whole restaurant. The rest of the restaurant was otherwise empty. She said something to the effect of "well, we don't usually seat people who are late". Bizarre. The waitress, however, was very pleasant and funny. However, the restaurant was out of about 30% of their dishes. Not a great experience but the food was decent.
Food was under seasoned and bland. Service was slow and inattentive.
Not my first time here and won’t be my last!
The service was horrible. Ordered the signature “Queen” bloody mary with “golden tomato” juice and was given a normal bloody mary. When I inquired about it, the waitress said she should have asked which color I wanted. I didn’t realize it was a choice considering that’s what was printed on the menu... service was slow throughout, and we were overcharged for the wrong dessert - didn’t bother waiting to change it. At one point the manager asked how our brunch was and we said “good” not having the heart to say anything. Was looking forward to trying this place but I won’t be coming back.
We went during Sunday brunch, so it was packed. We were seated in a meh location, but the appetizer biscuits were amazing! The waitress was very helpful and sweet, even though she was probably very busy. She was a little slow to come over, but understandable. Food was ready pretty quickly and was delicious. Clean bathrooms. Would definitely go back!
A favorite spot for brunch with my friends - great location, great food, great cocktails!
Been here a few times because the food is good, but this time the service was incredibly slow. My friend and I split a meal, but I wish I had ordered myself a full meal for the amount of time we ended up being there for. It didn't seem to overcrowded either. Was unfortunate, but hopefully a one time thing.
A little loud during brunch and the huevos rancheros were lacking. Other than that, everyone else loved their meal and the free pint glasses were so cool. The decor is fantastic too.
Amazing food ! Amazing experience ! Molly was great!!
They need better coffee.
