The food there is phenomenal, but we only go once in a while because it is so expensive! It is totally worth the splurge, though. Be sure to get the bread pudding for dessert!

So nice to sit with friends and be waited on by such great people. I can't eat spicy foods, but, I love the opportunity to order something that is delicious without it. I love the chicken and dumplings. The new bar area, greets you with warmnth and a feel of Whitefish. Patrick is the owner and he is such a... More

The catfish is fantastic; the shrimp and grits are fantastic; their specials are always fantastic. It is a bit on the pricey side for some items, but we've yet to be disappointed with the food. Service can be hit and miss, but all around, we keep coming back because this is a wonderful atmosphere with great food and most often... More

Tupelo has expanded and added a bar area. On the weekends they had a jazz band and singer. Best bar scene in Whitefish. Lively.

We went there twice during our vacation in February and it was really great. Both times it was rather busy, and yes, it can be a little loud, but the service was always great and the food delicious.

My Fiance and I went to Tupelo Grill for a special occasion and were greatly disappointed after what we had heard. We ordered a Halibut Special and the Shrimp & Grits. The Halibut was a tiny portion planted above a mix of crap with the Broccolini being undercooked and tough to chew. Yuck! It was terrible. The Shrimp and Grits... More

We regretfully apologize to you for your experience. The menu item you referred to on your review (shrimp & grits) have been in our establishment for the past 19 years and we receive thousands of compliments on. Honestly that dish is one of the reason for our success and the reason why people keep returning to Tupelo. The halibut special... More

We came in last night to have drinks and appetizers. The liquor selection is unbelievable!!! Our cocktail server, Bri, was very friendly and attentive. The bartender, Vickie, was very knowledgeable and quite entertaining. The food is great! The staff is amazing! The music selection is perfect! We will definitely be back! Hands down the best bar in Whitefish!

Tupelo's is always a good choice for a quality meal or a romantic evening. The dishes are innovative and well presented. Prices are a little on the high side, but the quality is good.

Just went to the newly expanded bar area with friends and had appetizers for dinner. We ordered 5 appetizers and all were delicious with a nice presentation. You've got to try the Cauliflower Steak especially. Also, I had a Henrick's gin dirty martini with dry vermouth and olives. I'm not really a martini drinker but that was exquisite.

One of the best eats in Whitefish. Very nice place and excellent food. It's on the high end for the area as far $, but the not outrageous. The Chicken-n-Dumplings was/is excellent. Whatever you order, save room for the Bread Pudding for Desert. probably in the top 5 desserts I have ever eaten.
