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 experience and culinary perspective to the restaurant. Harrison is one of the staunchest advocate for 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 his experiences up to this point and explore what Southern food looks like through the lens of multiple cultures and local products.
Reservations are strongly suggested, although walk-in seating is available at the bar and communal high-top table on a first come first serve basis.

The Honey Pot Ratings and Reviews

We loved finding a popular new (to us) downtown restaurant. The hostess explained that we were to order appetizers and entrees all at the same time. That it was better for the kitchen. We would have liked to order sequentially, being unfamiliar with the portions and dishes at the Honey Pot. The waitress was knowledgeable and professional. She did warn us about the spicy steak tartare! (It was good.)The menu was interesting. And somewhat limited, which was not a problem for us. The food was well prepared. We will go back to try it again. We are still looking for a WOW! from the place.

The food was good especially the meat. But the sides were definitely more foodie friendly. Also we had to wait at least 45 minutes for our food. The portions are small. I don't mind paying a little more, but I don't want to leave hungry

One of the only dining establishments in Winston Salem that delivers a great experience and continues to raise the bar. With a seasonal menu and assorted specials the Chef and his staff showcase their talents in the kitchen. The exceptional food is complemented by a well versed waitstaff who strive to ensure the dining experience is a pleasure from the first course thru dessert. My husband and I regularly opt to share a bottle of red wine and the sommelier is always helpful to recommend a pairing fit for our dish selections. Lastly, I appreciate how the ambiance has evolved as the proprietors have been able to invest in enhancements, including sound panels, making for good conversation for diners without sacrificing the energy of the space.

We were celebrating a friend's birthday. They made her feel special upon arrival. The food was beautifully presented and everything was just as it was described by our attentive waiter. Our guest was given a complimentary dessert which we could all share. Very enjoyable evening dining at the Honey Pot.

Had a wonderful meal at the Honey Pot! My date and I had thought about visiting another downtown local restaurant, but we're so glad we walked through there doors! Our server was great and explained our dishes in great detail. He was not overly "bothersome", which is something we greatly appreciate. Every course was divine! Will definitely be visiting again!!

We loved the ambiance of the The Honey Pot. Our somolier was awesome!! Great wine selection. The food was not awesome. My scallops dish was overly salty and the pasta was just average. Our server was not very friendly at all. Our hostess was wonderful!! A little uneven in some areas but overall good.

This was our second time dining at the Honey Pot, and for the second time we weren't as impressed as we hoped to be. For our first visit, service was subpar. We had dirty, empty dishes sitting on our table for way too long. We were hoping for a better experience for the second try. Service was better, though are server seemed to rush us with the menu. (If you're paying $30 a plate, it's nice to just have some time to enjoy each other's company and the ambience). I ordered the lamb, which I specified to be cooked medium-rare to medium. It arrived fully mid-well, so I sent it back. I didn't want my husband's food to get cold, so he ate and I watched. The re-fired lamb did come out perfectly pink and was delicious. The food was very good, but we're still missing that perfect evening at the honey pot.

Excellent food and cocktails.it is definitely a great restaurant for foodies and those who like farm-to-table style. Service was excellent. It falls in the pricey side of WS. The wine list and perhaps some of the entrees were overpriced.

My wife and I visited the Honey pot for the first time and were blown away with our evening. We both ordered the 4 course Chef's choice tasting menu with wine and beverage pairing and were met with delicious and interesting dishes we had never seen before in our lives, except for the steak. Each course was paired with a delicious beverage and we both agreed that we would not have ever tried any of the choices the Chef came up with but would not have changed a thing. Truly a great meal and a wonderful experience. We will be going back.

One of the top restaurants in area. You forget your in Winston-Salem. Trendy ambiance with consistently good food and friendly service. Bar is great place to get a drink and do an appetizer. Great wine selection. One of my favorite places in this town.
The food was outstanding and the ambiance was perfect for celebrating our anniversary. They have a great cocktail and wine selection. The sweetbreads app was amazing! The portions were perfect. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice dinner out. They do offer indoor and outdoor seating.
Excellent food, but disappointing service
My husband and I have dined at the The Honey Pot twice now and the food has been excellent both times. However, the service seems to be a little lacking. It was rather slow during our first visit, but during this most recent visit, the host finally came by to take our drink order apologizing that the waitress was tied up with a large table. Lucky for us that we had had plenty of time to decide on our food order, so the host was able to take that at the same time. Near the end of the meal, I ordered another drink and after waiting 15 minutes or more, I finally caught the attention of another waitress and cancelled it. At that point we had finished our meal and were feeling ignored. There was no offer of dessert and the waitress had not been by for several minutes. The drinks were very good but over-priced. It was a little disconcerting however, when the same waitress brought a complimentary dessert to the table next to us while we couldn't seem to get a drink we were paying for.

It was wonderful! I noted that it was our wedding anniversary and our table was ready with free champagne. So thoughtful. We also tasted the Schnozzberry mocktail which was my absolute favorite. The food was perfect-tasty, cooked to perfection and displayed beautifully. When it came time for dessert, we almost had no room but ate the chocolate mousse anyway. It was definitely a magical night.

This place was recommended to us from a coworker. I thought the food was ok, but definitely overpriced! Drinks were also overpriced. We ordered the Thai sausage appetizer, I eat these often and theirs tasted nothing like what it's supposed to. The lamb was very mushy. I was expecting a rack of lamb with the bone in, especially with the $28 price tag.
