“Our favorite go-to restaurant for a special night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The food at Tupelo is always good. The service is always friendly and helpful. The wine choices are excellent. Whenever we want to celebrate a special evening, Tupelo is our first choice. Oh, and in case you had not heard, the bread pudding is a must-get dessert.

“Good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Our family of 5 enjoyed dinner here. We loved the atmosphere and the service was great. Our entrees were good, not too spicy. The best part of the dinner was the fresh bread they served.

“Best Cajun Food Since I left the South”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

I left the South about a year ago and had not been able to find good cajun food until I went to Tupelo Grill. Their appetizers are amazing and the entrees are all very good. Service was good as well. Only downside was that the meal felt a bit rushed. Food came much quicker than we would have expected. With that being said, though, I would still highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Whitefish area.

“Like being in NOLA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Best NOLA-inspired food outside of New Orleans. This place is a must-go if you like gumbo, shrimp and grits, and all things New Orleans. Outstanding service. You'll come back for more.

“Incredible meal... Shrimp & grits was out of this world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of other Trip Advisor members. What a great recommendation! My friend and I decided before we even got here that we would try the shrimp and grits dish, since it was so highly reviewed, and was that ever a great decision! The shrimp were large and perfectly cooked, on top of cheese grits with a delicious sauce that we sopped up with every morsel of bread we were given. Delicious! My friend and I firmly believe that this was one of the best shrimp and grits dishes we have ever had. My husband had the mahi mahi special, which was served on cornbread with pineapple, which he really enjoyed, and my friend's husband had the Zydeco special, a variety sampler of catfish and shrimp with different kinds of rice. The plate was plentiful and also quite flavorful. We finished off with bread pudding with incredible rum sauce and chantilly cream, which was huge enough for the four of us to share, and a port dessert wine that was out of this world! A wonderful meal... we highly recommend Tupelo Grille!
