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.
I got Grilled cheese and a mixed platter with Collard greens and sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts and fruit Very yummy. Need to be specific if u r celiac to avoid cross contamination. Very good food though
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.
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.
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.
Waiter was knowledge on gluten free because his girlfriend is GF. We couldn't have the complimentary biscuits but they offered GF toast with jam for a slight uncharged which I was happy to pay. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff has that southern charm you would expect.
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.
menu has been scaled back a bit from my visit to the Tupelo Honeymoon Chattanooga. wait staff did check to make sure there was no cross contamination. went for the easy to do gluten free option of omelet.
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.
2 gluten free dinner choices fish or pork chop. Waiter put down the corn muffins in front of us and I took a bite by mistake. 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
Not sure why people are saying the GF menu is huge. I wouldn't quite call it huge. Also, the complimentary bread is not complimentary, if you get gf you get charged...
I had a great GF breakfast here.
They have a specific gf menu and brought out gf bread to eat with a delicious honey and blueberry marmalade. I ordered the eggs Betty which came with gf bread and fabulous grits. Food and service were excellent; I would definitely eat here again.
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!
Nice GF menu, although they took their chicken off recently and that has reduced their GF options. Recommend the veggie melt sandwich on GF bread. Make sure to tell them you have an allergy and they will take extra precautions to avoid cross contamination.
I visited this place after reading the reviews on this website, however there was not much available to eat other than their salads and their grilled cheese. There did seem to have options for breakfast, but as far as lunch and diner go, I would avoid this place.
This place is really fabulous! We ordered from the gluten free menu because my daughter has celiac and it far exceeded our expectations. The spring spinach salad was especially delicious. Also the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about celiac.
Awesome (and huge) g-free menu, awesome service.
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.
Had the omelet and the honey glazed fruit. Delicious.
I got the veggie melt and cheese grits. Amazing! Can't wait to go back. :)
Separate GF menu
We had a great experience at this restaurant. We ate there for lunch, short order type environment, however, staff and kitchen are on top of it. Very busy restaurant. Moderate to long wait. Noisy atmosphere. Friendly wait staff. Can't say enough about how safe I felt eating there.
We came here solely for the purpose of having a gluten-free breakfast, especially their version of eggs Benedict. The good news is that the server knew to ask the kitchen before I placed my order. The bad news is that the server came back with a clear, unambiguous message from the kitchen: the restaurant is gluten FRIENDLY, but NOT gluten free. Since flour flies in the air, they cannot provide a gluten free dining experience. Then I asked for a hard boiled egg and the server initially said it was not on the menu and so would not be possible. She managed to find a way to boil eggs when the prospect of our leaving immediately became clear. AVOID THIS PLACE IF YOU HAVE CELIAC DISEASE, especially for breakfast.
The GF menu was extensive and thorough (included GF salad dressing and side sauces available). I had the Charleston Chicken Sandwich on GF bread with Goat Cheese Grits. It was really good. My non-GF family enjoyed everything, too. The kids really liked the home fries. The staff was great. The hostess even let me read the ingredient list on the after dinner mints (not GF, contain wheat flour).
