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.
They have the menu marked GF. They GF bread and serve you toast in place of biscuits. It was delicious.
The havarti veggie sandwich made gluten-free is awesome, I get it every time! Goes great with the smashed sweet potatoes!
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.
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...
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.
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.
Awesome (and huge) g-free menu, awesome service.
Had the omelet and the honey glazed fruit. Delicious.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
I had a great GF breakfast here.
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!
