Overall, it was a great first time. Izzy was the best. Before we could think to ask for anything, either it was suggested or brought over. Izzy was the best server that I’ve experienced in a long time. Very attentive and made my whole party feel welcomed. We will be visiting Tupelo Honey- Arlington again and recommending Izzy if we can and even if we have to maybe wait to be seated.

Excellent food. Shrimp and grits best I’ve had. Smothered chicken was also excellent. Mini banana pudding was just right. Husband ordered the pecan pie, and although it’s never my first choice, took a fewbites and it was quite good. Sweetness didn’t hit until third bite🙂

I had the Mac and Cheese Waffle and Chicken and my guest had the Shoo Mercy. Both dishes were seasoned to perfection. The service was impeccable. We arrived, when the restaurant first opened. We had to wait for a few minutes to be seated while the staff found the keys to unlock the front door. Otherwise, everything else was fine. Pro-tip: Book an early reservation. This place is heavily frequented.

Everything was great - though the music was loud and forced everyone in the restaurant to shout all the time. More appropriate for late night bars, not Sunday brunch.

Service was prompt and food was delivered in a timely manor. We had the eggs Benedict and the mega mimosas (fair warning it’s only about 12 oz 16oz Max!) Sweet potato pancakes are a must try.
Things to know: they won’t seat your party unless everyone is there and there is a 90 minute table limit!

Will definitely come back.

We arrived at a time that was between lunch and dinner so there was not a lot of people there at first. The service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious.

Unfortunately, the quality of the food was poor and our server while very kind made multiple mistakes with our order. We also ended up waiting roughly 40 minutes for even our drinks after we placed our order. Sadly, despite a really enticing menu, will not be returning.

Our server was absolutely fantastic and the food was good but the whole dining experience was ruined at the end when someone, perhaps a host or a manager, came over interrupted our conversation by clapping his hands together to inform us the time had come we needed to leave cause the restaurant needed the table. This was before our server had offered our table coffee/dessert or had even dropped dropped our check for us to pay the bill.

It's great that the business is doing so well they feel this is appropriate behavior because despite the good food and service I won't be back.

Visited when my husband and I were Celebrating our anniversary along with brother and sister in-law Saturday 5/29 for brunch. Amazing food and the staff made us feel special with complimentary toast (Brown Derby cocktail) and sample banana pudding and pecan pie. Delicious blueberry pancakes, fried chicken and scrambled eggs for me, others in my party had the shrimp and grits and pancakes with sausage and eggs. Great spot with attentive staff, great location in the heart of Arlington and amazing food!
