    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.

    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.

    Sat at the bar. Got a drink fairly quickly. Then took a while to get a menu and place the order. Ordered chicken which came out cold and not crispy. Ordered white meat portion which consisted of small breast and tiny wing. Cold, al dente broccolini as side. Couldn’t eat it. To their credit they took it off the bill. Would not go back.

    Well lit, nice ambiance and spacious with indoor and outdoor options. Convenient location as well by train station. Immediately seated at reservation time and service was prompt and friendly. Fried green tomatoes were perfection, mimosas were excellent and of course the famed chicken and waffles were delicious- Crispy without being greasy. Biscuits were also yummy although they are so big it makes it hard to try all the other things you want to eat here!

    Our brunch was Sunday 10/16 and we elected to sit outside as we had a flight to catch and could not wait for the 2 1/2 hour wait for indoor seating. We made reservation just before our 10:30am reservation time. Service was very good. Good was very good. The Biscuits were fantastic. Only real comment was the possibility of outdoor heaters/covering/etc. I realize this was our choice to sit outdoors but with the great location, the great food and their busy indoor dining, it would seem that the season for outdoor dining could be extended with some attention to the outdoor space. With cloudy weather and temps in the low 50s it was brisk sitting out for the hour plus brunch.
