About The Honey Pot
Founded in 2014, The Honey Pot has constantly pushed Winston Salem's envelope of food, beverages, service, and the complete dining experience. In our pursuit we've garnered local and national recognition including Wine Spectator's prestigious 'Best of Award of Excellence'.
In July of 2016 Chef Harrison Littell joined The Honey Pot, bringing a wealth of knowledge and culinary perspective to the restaurant and downtown Winston-Salem. Harrison is a dedicated advocate of the Triad's purveyors- at last count we were working with more than 60 farmers, foragers, and producers to showcase what an exciting time it is to dine in WSNC. Chef Littell's dishes nod to a myriad of serious culinary experiences and explore what Southern food looks like through the lens of multiple cultures and local products.

The Honey Pot Ratings and Reviews

Exceptional service combined with outstanding food. Our server gave great drink pairing recommendations and was very knowledgeable about the menu. The entire staff was very friendly and made a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Definitely a place to try in downtown Winston-Salem!

Our meal was fantastic! The presentation was beautiful and it was delicious. However, Suzie, who took our meal orders, was less than attentive and we had to ask the maitre d to send her to our table to take our orders. She was not friendly, never smiled and seemed to care less about our table. The remaining staff were fabulous; the young man who took our drink orders, the servers and the maitre d.
I would highly recommend this restaurant in spite of Suzie.

I fear the Honey Pot seriously disappointed me on my most recent visit, falling to the fate of Winston-Salem restaurants...guaranteed inconsistency. Service was chaotic, confused and clueless. We ordered an appetizer that never ordered (but did receive one "on the house" which was completely not what we wanted), we more than twice almost received food and drinks belonging to another table despite a plethora of servers wandering about in the restaurant. And the food? The chicken, to be fair, was delicious. But it sat next to a pile of white rice, much of it clumped together over two pieces of squash...one well cooked and the other which kept me thinking I ought to remove the rind. I had taken a friend there as a special "treat" and he later told me he found his experience presumptuous, disappointing and not worth repeating. As an aside, if management cut the staff in half and assigned the wait staff tables, I suspect diners would have an infinitely better experience.

I didn't drink, but I started with the poutine - elevated bar nosh. French fries in a sauce of duck bacon and cheese. Too much for one and a little on the sloppy side but very tasty. Would have gone great with beer. My friend began with the charcuterie/cheese plate that we both could have licked clean. Honeycomb balanced the divinely done fatty meat that burst on the tongue. The black grouper special came with truffle risotto. After the duck fries, what was I thinking? Double starch did me in, but it was well worth it. My friend managed to nearly clean her pork chop and red cabbage plate. She's more of a taster than an eater, but had no trouble with these generous servings. I went home with a doggie dish. We were too stuffed to try the honey creme brulee. Next time, when we return for the lobster dish.
It's a small gem that fills fast. It's a little loud at capacity. Reservations are must.

We had a fantastic meal. My guest who is from the San Francisco Bay area was even impressed by the quality and creativity of the meal. The crudo was beautiful, as was the carrot soup and both had beautiful and unique flavor combinations.

This was my third time going to the Honey Pot since its opened, and it has consistently gotten better each time I've gone. This restaurant has definitely turned into one of Winston's best! My parents came into town and we all loved what we had. I had the Farmer's Plate, which is their vegetarian option - it was delicious. They are constantly changing up the menu, which never disappointments. The service was OK, but it won't keep me from going back!

Great concept. Very poor execution on our visit. Sat for 20 mins before being greeted by server. Food was average at best, certainly a let down for the price. Pork chop was severely overcooked, lobster was "me". Cool space, but we would never even think about going back. A real shame.

We had 6pm reservations, came in a few mins early to an empty restaurant. The food was really well prepared. The server was attentive. However, the manager came over and requested is us to leave just after we signed our ticket. Reasoning was to allow other patrons to sit. There was a table of 4 open next to us and a late communal table behind us that was completely empty. Overall it ruined our experience. So disappointing.

Atmosphere was quiet, on the romantic end.Food was fresh and different than most places in Winston. High class, not your adverage place of dinning. Good service, but no sodas. Tap water and adult drinks only option.

Honey Lot is excellent food. I go to most restaurants in the Piedmont triad and leave happy but can pick apart the food or wine list. Honey Pot only gets better and the quality of food is above what NC Fine Dining offers and has an excellent wine list with experts to guide you to the right bottle. This restaurant is my favorite spot in the triad, and up there with dining experiences in the state. Harrison the head chef is only getting better at indulging his clients. Get the Lamb and pair with a high quality, affordable Rioja or Gamay.

Dined at The Honey Pot with my son for Parents' Weekend and it was the beset part of our visit. Great food, atmosphere, service - a real unexpected treat for this tired mom and her stressed out college kid! The experience was phenominal - from craft cocktails to delicious dessert!

The managers and staff all were so helpful and the unique local farm to table choices were amazing! My son had the steak and scalloped potatoes which were scrumptious and I had the scallops in a lite curry sauce that melted in your mouth! We are coming back for their dessert of s'mores when we are not so full! If you are a food and like to be adventrous, then you must try HoneyPot!

Family dinner for 4 - mom, dads bday, 2 adult (in 20's) children - it was an enjoyable evening, sort of different menu, chicken was good but for $26 surprised it was a chicken leg (like dark meat ok but was expecting a breast-menu should have stated it was dark meat), wine list too different but manager found a good enough glass, different beers - the experience was ok, but not sure with such a different menu I would put it on the top of my list to return. realize the menu changes periodically -

My husband and I enjoyed a celebratory dinner with my parents. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed the evening! Service and ambiance made us feel right at home. I'm looking forward to going back to try some more of their creative cocktails. Highly recommended!
