    This is literally one of my favorite spots to eat! My best friend and I both can't have gluten and this is our go to. Every time I've gone the server has been so accommodating and so patient checking on things for me. The managers are awesome too. Each time I've told my server I was GF I've had a manger visit my table. My servers always ask (for my friends who can have gluten) if it's okay to bring the biscuits to the table for them! I literally can't say enough about this place!

    The food was good as it has always been. Have eaten here before I discovered I had celiac so I am glad that I can come back and eat here again.

    Delicious brunch! Be sure to tell them you have celiac. Wish they had more GF options! Read more: http://glutenfreecarolinagirl.com/2015/06/05/gluten-free-at-tupelo-honey-cafe-charlotte-nc/

    Update: they no longer have a separate GF menu, which is a real shame. Several items that were on the old menu are no longer listed as GF. It used to be easy to eat there, but now it's a lot of work to figure out what I can & can't eat - even with a few items marked GF. And the servers ALWAYS a bring me a biscuit. :( I've eaten here twice now with no issues (grilled cheese & tomato soup, and the shrimp & grits). Try their blueberry iced tea!As soon as I told the servers I have celiac, they immediately took it seriously. Their GF menu is extensive compared to so many restaurants, & their website says they're Great Kitchens Certified by the National Foundation of Celiac Awareness.

    Told server I have a wheat allergy. Ordered shrimp & grits (marked GF on the menu). Server said he wasn't sure if it has wheat. I said it shouldn't if marked GF. When he finished writing down my order he asked if he could bring me a biscuit! Ugh!! Limited GF options, but be careful and ask questions.

    We ate at the one in Asheville and it was great. Now there's one in Charlotte too. Gluten free menu with southern fare, lots of sides. Grilled cheese sandwiches are great with a cup of soup. Celiac and i've had no problems there.

    Very limited GF options. Only thing I could eat was mozzarella bruschetta (which was only 2 pieces of GF bread that was toasted) And expensive for what it was! Staff was rude and inattentive!!!

    i was really dissatisfied. from the reviews I was thinking there was going to be many options and there isnt. About 3-4 things are labeled gf. They do have gf bread but dont have any gf sandwiches. I had the side salad and soup which is small. I think everything was mighty pricey for the items listed. They make their own jam which was good but I wont return unless they were to expand the menu.

    I ordered gluten free duck at Tupelo Honey in Knoxville and it was ok. We sat by the food staging area and saw that my meal was sitting there for 10 minutes before my wife's meal was completed. They served them together, but mine was cold. The wait staff did not serve us all of our sides and the additional side that I ordered was delivered to our table long after we had finished eating. The manager did take the late side off of our bill though.

    They don't have a lot of offer in the way of gluten free options but what we had was good. Their regular menu items sound and look very tasty I wish they would connect with the local Gluten Free Artisan Bakery and purchase their house made gluten free flour blends for use in offering gluten free versions of their friend chicken, etc. They would make an excellent pairing and allow them to add a whole new level of gluten free delicacies to their menu. We will visit here again when we are in town.

    This was amazing. I was able to get a gluten and dairy free breakfast that was delicious. Highly recommended. I'm not sure it would be celiac friendly or if they have dedicated fryers, but they were very easy going and the manager was very knowledgeable.

    Delicious salads and sandwich options make this a great hot spot for lunch. Knowledgeable staff are committed to ensure you have a good experience. My only gripe is not offering a gf option when complimentary muffins and jam are gleefully served to others. Parking is very limited so walking from the Bed Bath & Beyond lot is more convenient.

    We had an awesome meal last night. I was the only GF diner in our party but I was not neglected in any way. While others enjoyed the delicious biscuits, I was offered GF toast so I could sample the Tupelo honey and blueberry jam! The seared scallops were so tender, cooked perfectly! And the risotto with peas! Yum! We had a party of 11 but the service was excellent.

    Gluten free items are marked on the menu which is a plus but I requested the gluten free eggs Benedict and it arrived with the regular biscuit. Unfortunately I didn't realize wasn't gluten free until I took a bite. They replaced my meal with the GF version but their lack of attention to detail concerns me and I doubt I'll return.

Since I had asked for the gluten menu he should have known.Turns out it is right on the main menu. Would have been a nice atmosphere but the staff spoke loudly to each other to hear over the music.Would maybe go there again, maybe

    There are several GF options on a dedicated menu so the variety is sufficient and the waiter was very aware of gluten sensitivity. The food itself was very delicious and we all walked out with no leftovers! I got a breakfast plate for dinner and I thought the portion of goat cheese grits wasn't incredibly generous but they are soooooo good. If you enjoy the tangy flavor of goat cheese, don't walk out without trying them! No gluten free desserts but for us, it's not a big deal as we don't typically do dessert. I'll be revisiting for breakfast in the morning!

    Traveling through to Pigeon Forge with 3 young boys all gluten free. They got gluten free grilled cheese, gluten free cheeseburger. Mom ordered the chefs gluten free shrimp and grits. If your a true celiac you will need to skip fries as they do fry items with gluten in the same fryer.
