Gluten free options are limited, but are clearly marked on the menu. It's worth a go - staff is always very friendly.
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.
Delicious GF sandwiches! Staff is Celiac aware.
I've been glutened every time I eat here. Even After explaining I have celiac and I'm very sensitive, it always happens. I think they cook their gf bread on the same surface as the regular bread....
I used to love Tupelo Honeys but the gluten free menu has been severely cut back since it flooded. The staff was nice but I dont ever care to go back again.
Great cheese grits!
Repeatedly "glutenized" here. One waitress advised me that I should "ration out" my gluten intake. My experience here has been completely unacceptable.
Amazing sandwiches. Great tomato soup!!!
I got the veggie melt and cheese grits. Amazing! Can't wait to go back. :)
Separate GF menu
Emma, our server, was very kind and helpful but they're not very accommodating for GF. We went Saturday at lunch and they were serving from their brunch menu. The GF items were all egg breakfast dishes. Not what I was hoping for. I asked and was given a lunch menu but there wasn't much more in GF there. I ate their grilled chicken sandwich with avocado and havarti minus the bun with a side of cheese grits. The chicken was moist and tasty but it was a lot of work to get out of the chef it was GF. I had higher hopes of Tupelo Honey. They proclaim loudly they buy local and serve fresh products. I thought a place like that would be better equipped and understanding of GF.
Very delicious, priced high for what you get however you are paying for ambiance too. Grilled okra with a garlic ranch dipping sauce was outstanding and marked (gf) on menu. Had a modified grilled chicken sandwich (no bread) they do have GF bread to sub but opted to go without. Had perfectly ripe tomatoes, avocado and a pesto- yum. The fried Brussels and French fries were in a shared fryer so it that doesn't bother you- then that will work too. The bring biscuits & jam to the table for the gluten folks too
They don't have a GF menu, however there were like three things marked with GF. They currently do not have Gluten Free breads, etc. However they do have Tito's vodka.
Gogo here! Staff is very helpful. Ask them what their gf options are because there are more items available then makes on the menu. GF bread with honey and jam, and gf sandwiches. Tupelo shrimp grits are, in my opinion, the best option. Hope this was an informative review! "Explore as much as you can in the world, because there is much to be found." _ Gogo
Great place and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The downside is there are really only 2 options for entrees that are gluten free, a chicken and pork option. Both options are great though. They do have some gluten free sides to go along with the two entrees as well, but would be nice if there were more options.
The fish is really good. They also make a burger on gluten free bread for my son. The shrimp and grits are delicious! One of the chefs is gluten free so they get cross contamination. Not a huge variety for those that are dairy free as well.
The menu is marked but you are very limited with your breakfast options (2-3 egg options). I have eaten there twice now for breakfast. First experience was fine, but our second experience was really bad. Slow and apathetic service, confusion about gluten issues... I asked for fresh fruit for our daughter and was told they didn't have any fruit! That seemed very bizarre to me! Our entire table ended up feeling sick after eating, and I was the only one with a gluten issue.
Tupelo Honey used to be one of my favorite gluten-friendly restaurants, but with a change in menu I was sorely disappointed. Since the wait staff seemed willing to to accommodate me without much knowledge.
We have gone twice. Food was average. My wife is allergic to gluten. We ordered gluten free entrees, and she felt awful both times. Not going back.
The staff was wonderful, a young man answered phone when I called, I said my wife is Celiac and I needed to know there was No chance of cross contamination because she will be Very Sick. He said he felt all is well but got his manager to the phone. The manager was GREAT!! She assured me of their diligence to safety for their customers and when I said I was interested in the shrimp & grits again she assured me that there would be NO cross contamination. When I arrived to pick up my carry out, Beth, the manager met me in the rear lobby. I was very impressed with the young man answering the phone and his willingness to Recheck information; Beth, the guest service manager for her help with my concerns and her care & concern to even come and meet me when I arrived & also, by no means meaning to be last, the Food Was Very Good!! Thank you to Tupelo Honey Cafe for GREAT SERVICE, care & concern as well as GREAT FOOD!
Went for dinner. GF options are noted on menu, very little to choose from. I asked if I could get a certain salad and what they would need to omit to remove gluten. Waitress rudely told me that if it didn't say GF on the menu, she couldn't help me. Won't be back. Other Tupelo Honey locations are better.
They have the menu marked GF. They GF bread and serve you toast in place of biscuits. It was delicious.
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!
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.
The havarti veggie sandwich made gluten-free is awesome, I get it every time! Goes great with the smashed sweet potatoes!
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.
