    My wife and I haven’t eaten here in quite some time. We were there during the first month or so of their opening and it was very good. During Covid we had ordered some family meals to go which were awesome and we appreciated that they were helping us and we were hopefully helping them as well. Last night we took our family of six there for a birthday dinner and I have to say it was outstanding in every way. The menu is even better than I remember, everyone loved their meals whether it was the bacon avocado sandwich or roasted pork loin or the variations on chicken and waffles, they were all outstanding. The food came amazingly fast which was great because we were all very hungry. We could not have hoped for a better waitress than Meier! Very sweet and relaxed, thoughtful and kind. She was very familiar with the menu and had Several favorites. It was a wonderful experience capped by a couple of small but incredibly tasty desserts with a candle for a birthday boy. I cannot wait to go back again and would ask for Maya absolutely. Welcome to Boise Maya we hope our city makes you feel as welcome and as at home as you made us feel at Tupelo Honey last night!

    Extremely nice service - the crew definitely had all hands on deck. Excellent food - we had chicken and waffles, avocado toast and the best creamy scrambled eggs ever! The green salad was light and lovely and the biscuits and blueberry compote were the bomb!

    Been here multiple times. I had the dusted chicken and it was a little dry. I have had better at Tupelo. Was there at 11:30 am on a Sunday. The place was not busy but service was very slow. I understand that there are some resource challenges...she forgot water when we sat down and did not come by too often. I have to stay that the greeter had tremendous energy and was incredibly likeable. It does set the stage for a good experience.

    Sat at the bar. Took them over 10 minutes before anyone even asked me how I was doing. It looked like they were super busy and a couple of huge tables may have recently left. Either way, the bartender never even acknowledged the fact that I sat down for a solid 10 minutes. And I was just one of four people at the long bar table. I ordered a cocktail from their menu which was extremely sweet. I don’t understand why people make cocktails that taste like straight up sugar solutions. I ordered their famous 18 hour brined fried chicken covered in some Sriracha honey sauce. There was barely any sauce on it and it was just a little bit of coating on the outside. It added absolutely nothing to enhance the flavor of that fried chicken, if anything it should’ve been left out. I also got a side order of their biscuits, served with butter and jam, which ended up actually tasting pretty good. I never got a water refill the whole time I was sitting there eating. The service was lackluster to say the least.

    I had dinner with a friend on a Friday night. It was packed and loud which is to be expected but it has cafeteria vibes when there are so many people in there. I liked my drink but my friend did not enjoy hers. The appetizers were good: fried pickles and brussels sprouts. There was an error with our ticket and our food took a very long time. We got our entrees and my friend had ordered a salad. The lettuce was brown so she sent it back. They brought out a "new" salad which was also brown. She sent it back again and got mac n cheese. I barely touched my entree. I ordered the mahi mahi which was so dry. It was awful. The mac n cheese was okay. Overall would not return except maybe for drinks.

    Second recent visit, and was generally pleased with the experience. We sampled a wide variety of items from the menu and everything was flavorful and well prepared. Service was pretty standard - no complaints but also not outstanding. One suggestion for improvement- the server asked very casually if I wanted any ketchup, aioli or fry sauce for some potatoes that I had ordered. I decided on some aioli. She did not make mention of the fact that there was an extra charge for this. It’s a relative nit - less than $1 on a $60+ tab, but it’s annoying, particularly given the portion size, which wasn’t even enough for the entire serving of potatoes.

    Ate outside where it was hot but bearable. Could’ve used fans. Started with the biscuit which was delicious. Should’ve been served with Tupelo Honey. Blueberry compote wasn’t good. Had the fried chicken which was really tasty. Side of collards and Mac n cheese. Sides were just alright but that chicken was sweet and hot at the same time yummy. We did not have dessert.

    Drinks were extremely overpriced. Paid $19.50 for an Old Fashioned (Knob Creek). Rarely ever see those above $15 at high end dining establishments. And this is not anywhere near a high end (fine dining) establishment! Despite being otherwise completely satisfied, I’ll choose to dine elsewhere due to the overpricing on cocktails.

    The Fried Green Tomatoes didn’t have much flavor (needed salt), and the biscuits were incredibly salty. The meats had a little more salt and sugar than I prefer. The baked mac and cheese was just right. Overall, the experience was good, but Tupelo Honey isn’t a place I could eat at often due to the overly salty and sugary food. But we’ll probably return in the future to try some other menu items. One final thing, we got banana pudding and pecan pie to go. They were VERY small portions. For over $7, we expected more. How small are the “mini” portions? They must be more like a sample sizes.

    I love the food at Tupelo Honey but the service has been awful every time i have gone. Servers take forever getting orders i. And the six times I've gone I've been told it’s taking so long for my order because a big order has been put in in-front of mine. Either way i keep coming for the food not the service.
