Went to Tupelo Honey in Market Commons, Myrtle Beach at “happy hour” and was so surprised! At first glance wasn’t too sure menu was what we had expected. ( not sure what..but seemed a bit odd). It was unique, delicious & quite the taste treat!...More

My husband and I were staying nearby at the Haywood Hotel and we arrived late which was good because otherwise I don’t think we would have gotten in to this restaurant as it’s very popular. We sat at the bar for dinner and enjoyed talking...More

I first ate at Tupelo Honey 15 years ago and loved it. Portions were generous and superbly prepared. It was a very small local spot that was consistently a great meal and an equally great bargain. Based upon my recent experience, it is neither any...More

There is nothing fancy about this place but the wait staff was excellent. We were here with friends on a visit and they suggested it. We were not rushed and the food was quite good. Very interesting menu although not extensive. Eclectic decor...comfortable and cozy....More

We had breakfast and dinner here, and had wonderful food both times. The food is done in the southern style, so portions are large and the food is straightforward, but very well-prepared.

We have been to Tupelo Honey many times and enjoyed it almost all the times we've been there. The food always seems fresh and unique. The only bad thing is is that there's often a long wait.

I would say moderate to high. Pricing isn't outrageous, probably typical for the area based on other restaurants we visited while in Asheville. Food and service were quite excellent so we felt like we got our money's worth.

Our Southern dishes and libations are served with a creative twist and a smile, and we serve our guests nothing that we wouldn't want on our own supper table. When we play with our food (and we think it's okay), the result is scrumptious. We're rooted in the Mountain South, and our menu is inspired by time-honored traditions: pickling and frying, canning and preserving, and utilizing seasonal produce and ingredients to prepare delicious, scratch-made creations.
