    All went well & server was excellent and accommodating to give us another table so we weren’t so crammed together. Food was good but not great considering the prices. Parking was also not described correctly online.

    Very good food (esp. the appetizers). VERY VERY noisy restaurant, however. Glad we could go outside on their covered patio area, where the sound went from deafening to almost manageable. Perhaps it was a special night, as the crowd was very energetic. Music was too loud, and focused on a certain demographic (not ours).

    My friend and I arrived. The server was really nice. We ordered. My friend had the original chicken with Mac and Cheese. I ordered the smothered chicken with collards and Mac and Cheese. We also ordered biscuits as an appetizer. The food came before the biscuits. We decided not to get them. The server brought complimentary biscuits as she said the manager stated we HAD to try them. My smothered chicken wasn’t really smothered. It was more like country fried with white gravy drizzled on top. My collards were cold. The Mac and cheese was ok. My friend’s chicken was dry. We asked the server for some sort of sauce to help it out. It didn’t. The biscuits weren’t edible. They were hard as bricks. We saw the family next to us pull theirs to a part and butter it. No chance with the two we had. After acknowledgment of the horrible food by the manager and the server, no one tried to rectify the food concerns, just $5 off of the bill. It was disappointing as my first food experience in Charlotte.

    We came to Tupelo Honey for a Bachelorette Brunch following a night out. Everything was spectacular! Our server, Amira, made our experience even better! She was fun, attentive, and knowledgeable of the menu. The food and drinks were outstanding! Management even gave the bride a Tupelo Honey cookbook as a surprise gift! They seriously went above and beyond and made the brunch perfect!

    This is one of the best southern food restaurants in the South. Honestly, some of the best fried chicken you will ever have. Please don’t pass on the homemade biscuits as one bite leads to angels dancing on your taste buds. They may even be so good that you forget about your pending entree. Also, in a rapidly changing economic climate where service seems to be declining rapidly this place has figured it out. The service was incredible! If your planning to go please do yourself a favor and request a seat in Tajanae’s section. You will be greeted by on of the funniest, kindest, and frankly best servers in all of Charlotte! Overall, this was an excellent dining experience and I highly recommend Tupelo Honey and am thankful for hard working, kind people like Tajanae who ensure that every customer experience is perfect.

    I have loved every other location I have visited, especially Myrtle Beach. But the Charlotte location has disappointed every time. Always out of signature items. Drinks took forever to come out. I spent what felt like an eternity with empty beer mugs waiting for another. Wife's cocktail never came out...plus please replace your wobbly, broken duck tape repaired tables...I promise no one wants to sit at them.

    Overrated place. Food was cold and did not meet expectations. The only things that was flavorful were the sides. Everyone in the party agreed that there were two flavor profiles to the restaurant when it came to specialty cocktails, starters, mains and sides. Those were tart/sour and sweet. There was no depth of flavor and the Asheville Hot chicken had no heat and was overwhelmed by the amount of honey. I would not recommend this place.

    Although the staff was pleasant, the food wasn't. I had to send my Shrimp and grits back twice because the shrimp was not fully cooked as I had asked. The chicken with the chicken and waffles was over cooked and tasted as if it was cooked in old grease.

    The music was very loud. Drinks were ordered and weren’t served until the waitress was reminded and even then, the wine that was ordered was not available. Mind you, this was not told to us until the waitress was reminded that it had been ordered and not received. The biscuit appetizer was dry and tough, like the dough had been overworked. The white meat fried chicken was over cooked and dry. The grits were dry as well. The gravy on the meatloaf as gelatinous. I won’t return and will not recommend.

    The menu items looked great, but were underwhelming after we received it. The country fried chicken could have used a little more seasoning. We expected the man n cheese waffles to have the mac n cheese, but instead it was under the waffle. The Mac n cheese overpowered the waffles. The ambiance was good... I think I'm more partial to the look of the South Blvd location.

    Had out of town guests that we wanted to show around town, so we chose Tupelo because it’s been a favorite of ours. We were seated quickly because we had reservations but we were seated in a spot where the waitress had just been seated 4 other tables. Service started off slow but things picked up about midway of our visit. The food was good & our waitress did as much as she could to recover & our guests were pleased.
