    The worst service I have experienced in years . They brought me the wrong credit card . I had to ask for water , there were 3 people who were waiting on us and no one could get us settled properly . The food was decent . Ambiance was lovely . We wanted to love it but when the service goes from mediocre to bad it’s hard . I didn’t make a big deal about it , I hope the next time I go they are organized .

    We were a party of 4 and the menu choices for 2 people were not available. The waitress recommended a back up meal to my first choice, and after that came back to inform me that my backup choice (her recommendation) was also not available. Three meals were delivered at once, but the fourth meal, a Caesar salad, was delivered 5 minute after everyone else's. Our waitress was nice and the beer was cold but the overall experience was very mediocre. I will not return.

    The restaurant was super cute and our waitress was very nice but that’s about it. The food and drink unfortunately were not very good. Coca Cola was flat. Avocado toast came out with a small smear of avocado that was completely brown.

    Atmosphere was vibrant and fun. Food was good and came out quickly. Service was so-so as they sat us a table where the bartender was our waitress. She was very sweet, but completely overwhelmed as the restaurant and bar was full and she was pulling double duty. Took forever to get refills, condiments, and the bill. They should have waiters assigned to all tables and using the bartender as one. Overall a good experience.

    Waited an hour for food. Did not have the wine I ordered. The other wine I chose was more expensive but tasty, but the smallest pour I have ever seen. We were seated outside because of the noisy interior. Drove to Charlotte for a concert. It was supposed to be a special occasion, but did not get off to a good start at Tupelo Honey.

    We ate at Tupelo Honey last night before the James Taylor concert in Charlotte. The wait staff was fine and attentive. The restaurant is still training its wait staff. Also, they were out of 3 things we ordered. But we adjusted and it was a nice evening.

    This is not the same Tupelo Honey. My daughter and I went there for dinner and the food was terrible. My daughter’s fried chicken was cold and was the blandest piece of chicken I have ever tasted. Fried green tomatoes were burnt. We have been to Tupelo Honey before and were looking forward to a decent meal. Very disappointing. Needless to say, we won’t be back.

    We were quickly seated upon arrival (we had reservations, which I highly recommend). Our server shortly appeared and gave us excellent service throughout our meal, in spite of a reduced staff. My husband and I had different versions of the chicken and waffles. I had the classic, and the waffles were divine, but my chicken was all dark meat, a little stringy and difficult to cut. This was our second visit to this location, and we had a similar experience before, in spite of it being very busy that evening. My menu choice then was the fried green tomato sandwich with a side of crispy Brussels sprouts, and it was delicious, no complaints.

    We took my husband to Tupelo Honey- Uptown Charlotte on 6/19/22 for Father’s Day. This was our first time eating there. We made reservations at least 1 month in advance. When we arrived, I asked if we could eat at the outside patio and I was told “no” with no reason why. I was quite surprised that the patio would be closed on a special day like Father’s Day. One of the big issues that I had was lack of cleanliness. The floors had not been swept so there was still food on the floor under our table. We had to send back our plates because they had food and hair on it. We weren’t given silverware or a drink menu so I had to ask for that. Lastly, when it came to the food, there was no love in it. The shrimp in the shrimp and grits were very pale looking with no flavor at all. The waffles for the chicken and waffles were hard. Would we come back again? I would say, “probably not.” Such a big disappointment when we were all really look forward to enjoying our meal.

    Service was great, but food was fairly bland. It was not the normal Tupelo Honey fare we were used to having. When the food came out, the food for our party of 4 was spaced at about 20 minutes apart. We were told that one of our salads for lunch was delivered to another customer and a new salad had to be made. It would have been nice to have been told that before asking about it. Overall, for the price we paid, the overall experience was lackluster enough to keep us from coming again.

    It’s such a nice looking restaurant! The service was decent but if I’m being honest, the food was really bland. I ordered the chicken and waffles, and the chicken had no seasoning on it. I was really disappointed because it looked amazing but it just didn’t have any flavor. I got some banana pudding and that was amazing though. I would go back but I will definitely order something else.

    Went for brunch on June 12th. The food was bland. I ordered fried green tomatoes. Very bland. Ordered Mac and cheese waffle dish. I thought the Mac and cheese was gonna be cooked into the waffle. It wasn’t. Just a scoop on the bottom of the waffle. I sent it back because I didn’t like it. It was bland. Got the white meat chicken and Mac and cheese instead. The Mac and the chicken was over cooked and dried out. The server was good. Not a good experience. Probably won’t revisit this location

    This was a GREAT experience at this location. I have also been a fan of Tupelo Honey, but this location was wonderful and the food was on point! I enjoyed the Eggs Benny with Avocado and had to take some home for later. The potatoes were the best I have ever had because they were EXTRA crispy.

    Great Southern food. We had meatloaf, fried chicken and shrimp and grits. All were excellent, as were all the sides. And all with reasonable prices. Our server was really friendly. I think they are likely short on support staff like everyone else.

    We have been here several times before, but we did not know that there is a new cook or owner for this location. The menu changed and we came for the sweet potato pancakes only to discover they were no longer being made. Complete change to the menu and we didn’t care for it. You can go anywhere cheaper for what they offer now. The food we had was decent, but now we no longer have a reason to return.

    Food was absolutely amazing. He a great server, and food was delivered in an reasonable amount of time, considering they were really busy. Only possible negative, is they had run out of what I had originally ordered. But I don’t really blame them…that’s just where we are now days with supply chain issues everywhere. And besides that, what I got instead was SO good. So was not disappointed at all that I didn’t get why I first ordered. My wife and daughter’s meals were phenomenal, as well. First time we had been, and an overall great experience.
