After a bad food experience the previous day, we were so relieved to find a place that met expectations. Very tasty food, good presentation and atmosphere and service. A little slow though. More expensive than we usually choose but well in line with the type of restaurant it is.

My wife and I were outside of Tupelo Grill reading the menu one afternoon and a guy from Calgary was drooling over the shrimp and grits on the menu. He said he woke up at night dreaming of this dish. Well, I tried the Tupelo shrimp and grits and it was just average. I have had shrimp and grits in... More

My husband and I always eat at Tupelo when we visit Whitefish. It is one of our favorites from the atmosphere to dessert this place is hard to beat. One of their specialities is the shrimp and grits. Order it. You won't be disappointed!

This is the best place in whitefish. They do a great job and the specials are awesome. I highly recommend any of the Cajun dishes and the duck and waffle appetizer was my favorite

The food was very good. The place is borderline 5 stars to me, but our service went from excellent to mediocre. Our waiter got overly busy and we sat with empty glasses for quite a while and just decided to get our check. I would come back because of the food and the service started out excellent so it's worth... More

Great steaks, also in appropriate sizes, but their starters and desserts are extrordinary. Oysters & Bison meatballs for starters and Key Lime Mousse fot dessert were our favorites. Very good service - really recommended!

We were so pleased with the Grill that we ate here two nights. The food is generally locally sources. The menu reflects its southern origins with touches of Creole and Cajun cooking. Lovely wait staff. Don't miss 'Elvis' blue suede shoe' (one of many I suspect, in the bar area.

While I was eating the elk meatloaf, I really wish I had the shrimp and grits instead . Meatloaf was very good probably above-average, but not great . My dinner companion enjoyed her grouper piece of fish... More
