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.

    The traditional breakfast I ordered arrived before I got my coffee and water. I had to ask for it again. Never got the water. The crispy potatoes were crunchy ..not in a good way, so much so I couldn’t cut them and they scraped my throat. It almost seemed to like the bottom scrapes. The bacon was cold and flat and looked like it had been sitting around a while. I was very disappointed. I would have said something but it was so hard to find anyone to help, much less get a glass of water or a coffee refill.

    This is my go-to-spot, especially when I need real, feel-good comfort food. It was cold outside, but I instantly got warm on the inside after eating lunch there. I brought a friend of mine who had never been there before (go figure), and she made a point to most definitely return. Thanks Mike!

    Friends met for a bite before the Stock Show parade. We didn’t realize the restaurant didn’t open until 11:0am, expected it open when we arrived for our 11:00am reservation. The restaurant is well known as a breakfast spot, so the 11:00 opening was a shock. The staff made us stand out in the freezing cold temp until exactly 11 - that is a bit harsh in my opinion! We were first to be seated and there were only 3 other small groups that came in as we were there. Based on the small number of people, the service was VERY slow. As a result of that, we missed the beginning of the parade, the best part! Disappointed.

    My third time dining at Tupelo Honey. We drive all the way from Evergreen because this place is so good! I'm not from the southern part of the US, but if I was, the food would bring back memories of all those good things. Chicken and waffles of course are favorites, but you must try the fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits too. Wonderful place to meet up with friends and just be happy! Our waitress was so nice and attentive too. Of course we'll be back.

    Meh... I made the reservations from the reviews and the 4.6 stars on Open Table and the experience was...well, just okay. I'd heard great things from others and I figued this would be an awesome experiencw. The service was exceptional which bumps this to 3.5 stars. We ate at the bar and the guys behind the bar were outstanding making awesome cocktails and great conversation. The food was good, not exceptional. This is a chain and I guess we should have figured it would be what it was, chain food and chain ambiance.

    Overall a solid visit. All 3 meals ordered were pretty good. Surprised there was canned green beans used on the filet entree, pork shoulder wok dish was good, but needed a little more sear/crust, the chicken/waffle Mac n cheese was the best out of the 3. Appreciate the mythology spirits, but at $20 a cocktail…Denver becoming the NYC/Vegas for drink pricing. Can’t go wrong with the biscuits and fried green tomatoes as a starter. Until next time TH.

    Went here for “family date night” before the Nutcracker ballet performance. Kids and parents alike both loved everything about our experience. My daughter loved getting dressed up for blueberry waffles for dinner! The braised beef with grits meal I had was out of this world. The cocktails were wonderful as well. Hats off to the bartender! Jessica our server was attentive, kind, and great with our kids. Would go here for any occasion. Perfect parts fun and classy.

    The food is great; I had the beef debris. Not fancy. Red wine comes in a white wine glass; margarita was served 3/4 full in a water glass. Wait staff wears flannel shirts. But they were attentive and the food was quite good. My daughter ordered sriracha chicken and waffles which was way too spicy. They made her new plain chicken, which was very nice of them, but the sauce had gotten on her waffle so she couldn't eat that either. My other two kids ordered from kids menu and it said one side was included with each. They charged us though for the sides and said they thought we meant full side orders so that was a bit odd. But overall it is a good restaurant, good for kids, but interesting for grown-ups, good location, accessible re reservation times, etc.

    Tupelo Honey - DenverResponded on December 5, 2022Thanks for the feedback, Boneill! It was a pleasure hosting you, and we hope to see you again soon!

    This was my second time at Tupelo, and I have to say it was a bit of a disappointment. The restaurant was not busy but we had difficulty getting consistent service and orders. The food was just ok this time. I ordered the meatloaf with goat cheese grits and salt and pepper crispy Brussels sprouts. The meatloaf was fine but the grits had no flavor, especially of goat cheese, and almost no seasoning. The brussels sprouts were humungous and not cut up enough to have any crispiness at all. They just were brussels sprouts. I will give it another try but I'm hopeful it's better next time.
