Great Service!

Thanks to Stace, the hard working hostess, we got a table without a reservation. We could tell she didn't want to lose us as customers! I would recommend a res if you don't want to miss this experience. Mitch took good care of us, including a little wine tasting to help us decide on a bottle... read more

Based on the reviews, we thought we'd check this place out. It has a dark, contemporary, modern feel if that's what you are looking for. I went to the area for hiking, so personally, I wasn't there for the atmosphere. I was disappointed that this restaurant had little bang for the buck. Granted, the food is good, but portions are...

Tupelo Grille offered surprising good New Orleans style dishes. The dishes were very flavorful and tasted as good as they looked on the plate. Save room to try to break pudding for dessert.

Great matire d who helped us when our reservation was messed up. Loud but really good band playing- they usually have music and it makes for a festive air. We had a great table as far away from the music in a nitch near the street which helped us be able to hear each other. We loved the food. Great... More

Lively, happening place with great friendly service.Fish of the day was halibut with a cajun twist, ambrosial. I had the Zydeco combo to taste several flavors. Loved the fish cakes (very unusual spicy) and the etoufe, did not love the heavy fried strips.Want to go back and try more things, they all look interesting.

The Shrimp and Grits are like none anywhere else! I have a hard time ordering anything else, they are so good. They also have great fish specials that never disappoint. Price is in the upper 3rd for Whitefish, but the value is there. Service is always friendly, but this is not a quick dinner spot, it takes some time. You... More

We enjoyed our dinner here very much, the Cajun shrimp & grits were very delicious. We were seated promptly with our reservation and the service was prompt & attentive. We would go back again

My husband had an excellent steak au poivre prepared to perfection and the rest of our party enjoyed their meal. Definitely try the summer salad. It took quite some time to be offered menus, drinks and to take our order. Eventually things did speed up. Although we all ate well, this was not one of our more memorable meals in... More

We arrived late after the restaurant was closed, but were still able to get tapas in the bar and wine. The waiter knew the wine list well and was able to make a good recommendation. The tapas were great; we had elk meatloaf sliders and mac & cheese that were both tasty.

Didn't have a reservation and it was a busy night at Tupelo Grille--the manager graciously found us a place and we enjoyed a luscious meal.
