Southern
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.

    You do a good job, online, of cautioning patrons who elect to dine outside that you cannot guarantee sun or shade. Yesterday, was particularly sunny and it was challenging to even see the menu, much less one another. Perhaps something can be adjusted in terms of the overhead cover to ensure the comfort of diners. I don't mind sun or shade but when it's impossible to see the menu, clearly view the food or the folks you're dining with, well, that is definitely going to impact the overall experience. The food was very good, and the service exceeded expectations. I would absolutely return but would think long and hard before dining outdoors. Actually, we would have elected to dine indoors had there been space when we made our reservation.

    The restaurant was very busy on a Saturday evening but thankfully we had made a reservation for two people. The bathrooms are locked. You have to get a code from a staff member to put into the locking system to use the bathroom. Hopefully, you're not in a hurry! Our server wasn't good. He took our drink order then disappeared for 15 minutes. He brought our drinks, took our food order and disappeared for 20 minutes. He delivered our appetizer biscuits and said he would bring us individual plates (the biscuits are delicious but huge and crumbly). He never brought us individual plates, so we made a huge mess on the table that I cleaned up with handwipes from my purse. We received our entrees about 20 minutes later. The food was good. We had nearly finished the meal before the server returned. We were thirsty, as we received no drink refills, so the server brought us water about 10 minutes later. We ordered dessert, but the server messed up that order. A different server brought the wrong dessert to us. We then had to wait another 10 minutes before our original server returned to take our order for the correct dessert. He never removed the dirty plates from dinner that were stacked up for him to take away. 10 minutes later, we received the correct dessert. I asked for a box to take home leftovers. It took another 10 minutes to get the box, yet another 10 minutes to receive the bill. Just before we were about to leave, the hostess came to finally clear our dinner plates. The food was generally good, but avoid the banana pudding dessert as it was the consistency of soup and had some banana slices in it. Yuck. If I was not a patient person, this would have been a very frustrating experience. I would think twice before returning.

    We love this restaurant but the food was a disappointment this time. We may have come between lunch and dinner turnover but still. The potato cracklins were dry, the chicken was dry and the biscuits were not warm at all. Again usually we rave about the food but our early dinner just wasn’t up to our expectations.

    Oh my! This place is amazing! Cannot say enough good things! We went for brunch. The food was so good, we wanted to order everything on the menu! Have the Divine Swine Benny, highly recommend. The biscuits for a cause are HUGE and delicious. The goat cheese grits were so good too! They were busy, recommend a reservation for sure!

    To start with the food, it was okay at best. I’ve been here before and everything was good and flavorful which is why I returned. This time, none of my food had the flavor that I expected. Very bland. My waitress started out really nice and attentive. Once my friend arrived and we placed our orders, she literally checked on every single table but ours. She didn’t ask us how the food was, refilled our water once, I literally had to grab her attention so we could order drinks. She walked by us several times with no interaction. I was disappointed and will never dine here again.

    The biscuits appetizer was extremely good. The bone-in fried chicken was fantastic & the 18 hr.s of brining is apparent as the chicken is very moist inside. The Collards with bacon were cooked just right. Kristina provided great service for our meal. The cocktails were very good too. Be sure to walk through the nearby Union Station.

    Myself and my spouse went for our anniversary overall awesome experience except the part where I realized my server never gave my card back and I back tracked my steps and they could not find it either so that lets me know it was probably given to another customer by mistake. No big deal I canceled it and got a new one.

    They were accommodating for our stroller and the food was not your typical brunch! Very good max n cheese waffles (with chicken). And I had an amazing grits bowl. I’m from the south and they did well - delicousness wise. I wish they had latte coffee options though.

    Being from MS, I was skeptical but was pleasantly surprised. I tried the honey dusted fried chicken w/ collards and they were delicious. The chicken is clearly brined because it was juicy and tender. The collards were full of flavor but not southern style. I was pleased. I wished they served cornbread but at this time, they do not. I also tried the banana pudding and it taste fresh and homemade. I will be back !

    We went there for brunch today. There was something on the menu for everyone in our group. The food and the service was excellent. Our server, Nathan S. was attentive without being overbearing and and had fantastic recommendations. The food came out of the kitchen really quick for a packed Sunday brunch. If you need parking the valet service at the Born was convenient.
