Southern

Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home. Steps from historic Denver Union Station, 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.

Reservations are strongly recommended, and we will accommodate walk-ins where possible.

    To start with the food, it was okay at best. I’ve been here before and everything was good and flavorful which is why I returned. This time, none of my food had the flavor that I expected. Very bland. My waitress started out really nice and attentive. Once my friend arrived and we placed our orders, she literally checked on every single table but ours. She didn’t ask us how the food was, refilled our water once, I literally had to grab her attention so we could order drinks. She walked by us several times with no interaction. I was disappointed and will never dine here again.

    The biscuits appetizer was extremely good. The bone-in fried chicken was fantastic & the 18 hr.s of brining is apparent as the chicken is very moist inside. The Collards with bacon were cooked just right. Kristina provided great service for our meal. The cocktails were very good too. Be sure to walk through the nearby Union Station.

    Myself and my spouse went for our anniversary overall awesome experience except the part where I realized my server never gave my card back and I back tracked my steps and they could not find it either so that lets me know it was probably given to another customer by mistake. No big deal I canceled it and got a new one.

    They were accommodating for our stroller and the food was not your typical brunch! Very good max n cheese waffles (with chicken). And I had an amazing grits bowl. I’m from the south and they did well - delicousness wise. I wish they had latte coffee options though.

    Being from MS, I was skeptical but was pleasantly surprised. I tried the honey dusted fried chicken w/ collards and they were delicious. The chicken is clearly brined because it was juicy and tender. The collards were full of flavor but not southern style. I was pleased. I wished they served cornbread but at this time, they do not. I also tried the banana pudding and it taste fresh and homemade. I will be back !

    We went there for brunch today. There was something on the menu for everyone in our group. The food and the service was excellent. Our server, Nathan S. was attentive without being overbearing and and had fantastic recommendations. The food came out of the kitchen really quick for a packed Sunday brunch. If you need parking the valet service at the Born was convenient.

    I was in Denver for a business trip and decided to try Tupelo Honey. I'm originally from NC, so I've heard of the restaurant, but had never been there. I decided to try the Bourbon Peppercorn Glazed Meatloaf with the Parmesan and Garlic Potatoes and Crispy Brussels Sprouts. I also had a Peach Don't Kill My Vibe (cocktail). OMG, the food was absolutely, positively delicious. I definitely will return again. Loved, loved, loved the food. I was dining alone and sat at the bar, but never felt alone. The other diners were extremely friendly, as was the bartender. It was a great experience.

    We’ve eaten at the Raleigh and Asheville locations and had good experiences so we thought it would be a safe choice, but the Denver location is a bit of a cluster and then the food was meh so wouldn’t recommend this spot. We had a reservation for 8 and had two family friends join last minute so we appreciated the hostess letting us split into two tables to accommodate everyone. When our tables were ready she took one group and then basically forgot about the other table so we waited another 10 minutes and she never came back so we asked another hostess if she could seat us but she didn’t know which table we were supposed to be going to. Finally got seated and the server was really nice it just took a long time to order drinks, then food and then for the food to come out even though probably 1/4 of the tables were empty. For a “scratch” kitchen I was surprised to see them pouring Tropicana (like straight from the grocery store jug) orange juice so don’t recommend unless you aren’t expecting fresh and the chicken portions with the waffles and biscuit were SMALL. Same with the three mini shrimp on the po’boy. The biscuit and ranch dressing are really good though.

    My friend (who had never been there) and I had a lovely brunch time. Wished it had been a smidge warmer to eat outside. There were a lot of new faces serving, so I figure the regulars might have had off for the holiday.

    I guess I was expecting more. The food was okay, the service was decent, just not anything to rave about. I had Eggs Benedict - served on a dry biscuit, eggs a little over done, sauce was okay. My husband had chicken and waffles, he said they were good, not too sweet with just the right amount of heat. Located to the back of the train station, so convenient for a day downtown.
