Wow!

A surprising dining experience centered around a Southern theme. Wish we lived closer to this establishment so we could frequent it a minimum of once a week. Excellent!

I grew up in Mississippi but have spent the last 35 years in Montana. Food is one of the only things I miss about the South, and Tupelo's gets it exactly right. I tend to order the Louisiana specialties -- etouffee, gumbo, catfish, etc. -- but it's all good. The service is uniformly good, and it's a great atmosphere; perhaps... More

great fried catfish..but save room for their bread pudding. The wait service was fantastic,however the young girls at the door need training. Gossiping with each other when customers are in front of you is not ok.

Girls night out. Had a cocktail at the bar first. They did not have Boodles Gin. Then went to the dinning room sat at a booth. Everyone a very nice meal. Nice service. A little over priced. Wish they added a salad with the entry. Great over all dinning in Whitefish.

Tupelo Grille was a great treat on our visit to Whitefish. The servers knew the friends we were visiting and were very friendly. We had a great meal and left stuffed. Some highlights were the pasta with andouille sausage and the shrimp and grits - but really, everything was great! I would definitely go back here on a visit to... More

After being " dissed" by the local sushi bar, (with reservations), we decided to hit up Tupelo for dinner on our one day off. We stood at the door for 5 solid minutes, with absolutely no acknowledgment from anyone. I went to the restroom, and my husband went to the bar for a shot...amazingly, the bartender was able to pour... More

Had an amazing meal here the other night! Unique and flavourful dishes. Service was excellent. Try the shrimp and grits - you won't be disappointed. The catfish strips were also excellent!!

It's the perfect place when you want good food, something a little different but you don't quite know what you want. This menu has all the bases covered and I don't think there was a dull item on the menu. Plenty of Cajun spice although don't be surprised to also see wasabi and Thai curry. We started with shrimp and... More

I'm always amazed at what a great experience we have at Tupelo. But the other night topped them all. We were greeted and treated like Kings as we walked in....and the place was packed with enthusiastic and seemingly happy diners around us, all oohing and aahing out loud. After a collection of wonderful appetizers and a couple of great martinis,... More
