~The Beast~

~Obedience Dog Training~

On this particular journey through the narrow corridors of Greenville. We brought along a star pupil of our Barxford University. A pit mix named Ziggy. Ziggy’s primary focus during his stay was his anxiety. Outings like this one helped build his confidence in both his handler (Steph) and himself.

~The Experience~

So…. Tupelo… I had heard many great things about Tupelo Honey so my expectations were high. Perhaps too high. Not to say there was anything ‘bad’ about TH, but there wasn’t much appeal to me for returning. I would rate everything about the establishment as “ok”. I wouldn’t discourage you from trying TH out for yourself and if you love it, I still love you. My beef was small potatoes.

I walked in one of the 3 entrances to the restaurant. I found out quickly that it wasn’t the main entrance since no one greeted me and I got a funky look when I asked if I could be seated in the outdoor patio. The table was wobbly… the normal napkins trick didn’t do it. No paper towels in the men’s room. It took 23 mins to get the food. Not terrible considering there was a decent crowd but having ordered off a lunch menu I hadn’t really planned on the outing lasting an hour+, so a little disappointed.Β Most eateries in Greenville are overly hospitable. Not giving you the opportunity to sit down before making sure you have a high chair and water for your dog simply because they recognize the need. This wasn’t my experience here.


~The Grub~

Solid performance from the plate. Food was very good. Brussel spouts were killer.

~The View~

It is right off main street but tucked away so the sidewalk traffic isn’t too heavy. So if you like to people watch, the scenery isn’t too thrilling. The place was packed and we were just about the only people, and dog :), seated outside.


~Puppy Seating~

The outdoor patio area has a fence around the entire thing, excluding the entrance, so your dog doesn’t have the option of darting after something. But, the fence is entirely see through so the possibility of an exciting distraction catching your puppies eye is still there.

😐 Location – Tucked away and easily missed. Right across from “Aloft”, on the back side of the “ONE City Plaza” downtown Greenville SC.


~The Verdict~

I give a sideways thumb. 😐
Not that this was a bad place to eat, there are just so many other places that have knocked my socks off. Β I would not recommend this place to any out-of-towners.
