“Great Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Market Square is located in the center of the city and offers excellent choices of places to eat, drink and entertainment on the square. Most restaurants are child friendly and in the summer the fountains are set up for the children to run thru and cool off. Plus, there is often an acting troupe performing Shakespeare in summer and, in winter, ice skating is popular.

“Trip to Tupelo Honey's on Market Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The atmosphere on Market Square was great. Walked around while waiting on our table for dinner. Had coffee at a cute little coffee shop, bought a loaf of fresh baked bread at a small bakery. The ice skating ring was still opened and skaters were having a ball. After a GREAT DINNER at Tupelo Honey's. We walked down to the see a movie at the Theatre on Gay Street.

“So-so area for dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Most of the restaurants are just okay, limited space, high prices. This is more of a hangout for the trendy downtown livers than suburban folk.

“Definitely visit if you're staying in Knoxville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Several unique shops and restaurants in Market Square. Dogs are welcome on patios. Great patios to enjoy drinks with friends. From Thanksgiving through the 1st week in January there is an outdoor ice skating rink set up that is lots of fun for the whole family.

“Went to a new restaurant in Market Square last Sunday. Called Tupelo Honey.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Tupelo Honey has only been open for two months but was already busy. People were lined up and we had a thirty minute wait but it was well worth it. We went for lunch but they also have a brunch menu. Excellent. Highly recommend. Enjoy!!
