My vegetable plate had nice options but the collard greens were super salty. Desserts were tasty but tiny and server forgot to bring his silverware and I had to ask two people before we finally got spoons. Manager was very professional and discounted the meal cause of the inedible collards. The atmosphere was lovely and friendly.

Shrimp & grits had a good number of shrimp. Avocado bowl was a hit. Summer spritzer was refreshing. Smothered chicken was not smothered — not enough gravy. Collard greens were not cooked long enough nor had enough bacon mixed in.

I haven't been at Tupelo in a while, but my favorite dish was my Cobb salad with fried chicken. The fried chicken look and taste like it was two days old. The avocado toast feel that the avocado wasn't fresh, but they were using one of those containers that have a mushy avocado that are tasteless. Finally, service was not good. Waiter didn't know how to describe a dish plus he wouldn't check back on us

overall, I would give them another chance, but food and service needs to improve or go back to the pre pandemic quality.

Our food and server were amazing! I am obsessed with the fried green tomatoes and get them every time I go. This time I really wanted some fried chicken breast, gravy and eggs - not something on the menu, but my outstanding server was able to make it happen. I couldn't have been happier!

We visit the Tupelo Honey in Myrtle Beach and loved it. When we found out that there was one nearby, we wanted to bring the rest of the family. We had three different people wait & serve us. The timing and attention between drinks, apps & food was very off and the place was empty. The food was good but not as good as Myrtle. We loved the music that was played and that there was a happy hour menu. We will try it again.
