A little Southern charm is coming to the Columbus area.

Tupelo Honey Southern Kitchen & Bar, the popular Asheville, North Carolina-based restaurant chain, is slated to open its first-ever Ohio location in October, although an exact date was not announced.

The eatery will be located at 1678 Lane Ave. in Upper Arlington.


The 5,500 square-foot restaurant will serve all day breakfast, lunch and dinner. Diners will also be able to grab chicken and waffles, po’ boys, a sweet and spicy chicken sandwich and more.

“Since 2000, Tupelo Honey continues to inspire a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home,” a statement on the eatery’s Upper Arlington expansion reads. “We use fresh, responsibly-sourced and “forever free” ingredients to bring the scratch-made taste of the South to every new community.”
