Waiter was knowledgeable and knew how the foods are prepared so he was able to give us good information. There aren’t enough options. Only 2 entrees, 1 salad and a couple of sides. Can’t even get grilled checken because they marinate it all in Soy sauce.

Very limited gluten free options (2 to be exact), and no bread as their online menu suggests. There is not a dedicated gf menu.

I can't say enough about this place. Last night I had the pork chop with mashed potatoes and green beans with a side of roasted beets. For lunch today I had the roasted beer salad with grilled salmon.

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!

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
