We came here for brunch. The gluten free options were limited but clearly marked. Our waitress was very helpful in communicating with the kitchen for clarification (the potato dish I wanted to order was not marked gluten free due to CC potential as opposed to actually containing gluten). She even brought me a side of GF toast when she brought my husband a plate of biscuits so that I could enjoy the blueberry jam and Tupelo honey as well). I would definitely come again if I’m ever in the area.

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.

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.

Repeatedly "glutenized" here. One waitress advised me that I should "ration out" my gluten intake. My experience here has been completely unacceptable.

Many red flags that I shouldn’t have ignored. Waiter didn’t write anything down which means he didn’t write down my gluten allergy when I told him. The pork I ordered came on a cast iron pan that may have been contaminated. He brought out macaroni and cheese on my plate instead of grits that I ordered. I’m writing this as I lay here sick :( wouldn’t recommend.

Delicious! I’m a celiac and felt very safe eating their shrimp and grits. Was also a fine environment to bring our toddler; not too fancy.

Not an extensive gluten free menu but they do have gluten free bread and can make many of their sandwiches gluten free.

There were a few gluten free options, but not a whole lot. I would say the restaurant is safe for those with sensitivities or intolerances, but NOT celiac. The green beans are listed as gluten free, but when they were brought out (after ordering and alerting the waiter that I am celiac) I was told there was a chance of cross contamination. I poked through them and found bits of fried chicken batter stuck to them, so definitely shared fryers. Our order also took an exceptionally long time (waiter forgot to put it in) and we were brought biscuits for the meantime with no other options for the gf individuals.

However, I got the cast iron pork which was extremely tasty, and had no chance for cross contamination.
