The name alone draws you in. I think of the Van Morrison song as we are seated. We both ordered the southern tacos. 2 tacos one with bbq pulled pork and one with fried chicken. The pork was the favorite. They also serve you a...More

Great place for brunch, lunch and dinner. Each meal is served with a large biscuit and blueberry jam.

Friendly service can’t overcome the mediocrity of the food at Tupelo Honey. Breakfast is good, but lunch has been unsatisfying each time I’ve been there. The veggie sandwich is AWFUL! The biscuits were better when they first opened. I haven’t had a bad experience here,...More

This place has some great southern cooking. Weather it is Chicken and Waffles or a spin on an old classic, this place is amazing. It stays pretty busy and there may be a short wait but it is definitely worth it.

We make an annual trip to Knoxville and we always go to Tupelo Honey for breakfast. The grits are delicious and the portions are big. The pickled beets in my dish were amazing!

This place is on Market Square and enjoys a strong local following. Part of a group of 5 restaurants in southern cities, you do not get any feel of chain restaurant. The menu is interesting, with Southern takes on well known items. The gumbo was...More

After 4 hour trafficky drive from Cincinnati, we all needed a respite from another hotel dinner or no dinner and I, on a whim, I googled Best local restaurants Knoxville. I chose Tupelo Honey Cafe because of the location (Market Square) and the menu -...More

Tupelo can be a bit loud/crowded for my preference. They have great food but expect to spend around $15 a plate if going for lunch. The biscuits & jam are to die for and I always eat way to many!!

Our Southern dishes & libations are served with a creative twist & a smile. When we play with our food (& we think it's okay), the result is scrumptious. We're rooted in the Mountain South, & our menu is inspired by time-honored traditions: pickling & frying, canning & preserving, & utilizing seasonal produce and ingredients to prepare delicious, scratch-made creations.
