A word from The Asbury
The Asbury celebrates the best of what the South has to offer in ingredients, technique, creativity, and, of course, hospitality. The Asbury is a tribute to Executive Chef Chris Coleman's southern roots and the culturally diverse community of the New South. At The Asbury, Chef Coleman creates menus and meals that are uniquely Carolinian: modern but rustic, evolving but still rooted in classics, southern and welcoming. There is a strong tie to heirloom ingredients native to our area, lost to time and modernization, as well as specialty items grown by small, family farms throughout the region. Chef Coleman searches out the best quality he can find—much of it coming from within the local region.

The Asbury serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

Diner Reviews
  • "Had pre-show dinner at The Asbury and was generally pleased. We started with drinks, I highly recommend the Espresso Martini. Followed that with the Sampler starter: BBQ Caramel Popcorn, Deviled Eggs, Butter Bean Hummus, and Icebox pickles: delicious and a beautiful presentation. I then had the Roasted Beet Salad. It was good, just not great. I would prefer a creamier goat cheese on that salad as the whipped Chèvre was almost a dessert consistency. Then I had what was probably the best beef ribs I've ever eaten. Delicious! I highly recommend them. Would I dine at The Asbury again? Ehhh.,,not sure because of the sheer number if delicious restaurants in Charlotte. But, I'm glad we had the experience."

  • "I was impressed with the intimacy of a small restaurant. I had the Short Ribs that were melt in your mouth tender, with beets and sweet potato. Delicious! I hope to try Brunch there next."

  • "The Asbury has an incredible menu! The snack plates are an interesting assortment of foods at low prices. You can just get several of those and some drinks to split between friends before going out for the evening and be satisfied. But don't let that stop you from getting one of the delicious and unique entrees! Nothing ordinary about these dishes, from the types of food to the beautiful presentation on the plate. Finally, the chocolate chess pie is to die for! The wait staff is well-trained, from their friendliness to their knowledge of the menu to their vigilance. All in all, a great dining experience you don't want to miss!"

  • "This was our second visit in less than two months. We were very pleased with our experience (this time, too) - overall FOUR STARS. The most obvious compliment is there are enough service people to assure each diner is well treated. The four of us tried the Butterbean Hummus (snack) and it was good. More different than good but we all ate some of it. We each had a different entrée. Tried the scallops, shrimp, catfish and short ribs among the four of us. All tasty and well presented. The four of us shared a dessert and a bottle of wine. It is a good place - certainly worth trying. You may not be overwhelmed but we bet you will be satisfied. Again, we appreciate the conscientious service!"

  • "Very creative menu. I had the 62 degree egg and cured fish, it was really great. Others had different dishes and all were happy. We also had dessert and it was great as well. High quality cocktails also. Well run high quality establishment. I look forward to returning soon to try another dish."

  • "The snacks alone are worth the trip to this restaurant. I would return for the hummus, the sausage balls, the bacon jam & biscuit - and the most amazing fish and risotto! The ramen, however, left a bit to be desired. The broth was too oily with too much soy sauce. and the noodles were way to thick to be considered ramen. But it was easy to forgive due to the quality of the rest of the meal."

  • "We went in on a fairly uncrowded Sunday. Wait service was fairly slow, our waiter complained that he had 3 tables... They ran out of the guinea and waffles which was what I planned to order so I got the pimento omelet with a side of grits. The grits were great but I didn't like the omelet as much as I wanted to. My companion got the French toast which I tasted and it was delicious. Nice atmosphere, not too crowded but servers could use some training. They seemed overwhelmed by 4 tables."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The biscuits cooked in a cast iron skillet were served with a delicious Benton's bacon jelly that was outstanding. I could have made a meal on the bucuits alone. The buscuits had a crusty, sweet crust from cooking in the cast iron, but were light and fluffy on the inside. Enough for two to split, but you may want to keep it all for yourself."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The restaurant tries to get creative with standard southern fair. Chef quality is very good but the menu options are somewhat limiting in my opinion. However, price-wise the restaurant remains reasonable. Unfortunately, the atmosphere is completely lacking - noisy in an uncomfortable way, romantic atmosphere is absent, and the small dining room fails at creating a cozy environment. Tables are large, dressed down, and organized such that they are uninviting. For a romantic dinner look elsewhere; but, for a 'different' sort of meal that you don't mind paying a little bit more for, it's worth a try."

  • "I've now been to the Asbury twice and I've been very pleased both times. My two favorites are the Oysters as an appetizer and the Trout as my main course. The wine was reasonably priced, the appetizers are all very good-the biscuits and onion jam are out of this world and worth every calorie. The servers are very knowledgable and know the menu well. This place is quickly becoming one of my new favorites in town. The ONLY negative is that it does get a little loud at times...."

  • "Dunhill is a special spot. We have eaten at 2 prior restaurants in that space. The Asbury's predecessor Harvest Moon Grille was a great concept with very good food, but the ambience was dull and never full for such a small space. We hope Asbury makes it. Decor has been jazzed up for sleek, big city feel. Service was top notch with wise recommendations and charming personality. Food was excellent. Definite spot for foodies who view food as art."

  • "Perhaps I had high expectations for The Asbury, or perhaps it's still in its "new" phase and working out the kinks, but this dining experience was good, though not memorable. The meal was well prepared, though the accoutrements lacked originality and creativity. If you want something tasty, go here. If you want something to scintillate your taste buds, go somewhere else."

  • "It was a Friday night and we were 25 minutes late. They had given our table away after 10 minutes and offered for us to sit at tables in the lobby of the hotel... We refused and so they took us into the restaurant. Only 3 tables were full and 10 were empty It stayed empty for 45 minutes. The white bean hummus was awful and they fairly took it off the bill. The bread was cold - straight from the fridge? The cauliflower bisque was wonderful. The pork belly was decent. Maybe give them some time to finesse things? Unfortunately, we will not be going back."

  • "Had a 6PM Friday reservation - only one other table occupied when we arrived but the place filled up quickly in the next 30 minutes. Our server, Donald, was attentive and enthusiastic. It was a good sign when he "didn't bat an eye" when my wife requested a vegan plate even there is no vegetarian option on the menu. The kitchen put together a great plate that left her more than happy. I had the special of the night, red snapper. I'm generally not a fish eater, but it was as good as advertised - moist and flavorful. The only disappointment was that as the restaurant became busier, the service became noticeably slower, to the point where we had to ask several times for and to pay our bill. It's definitely worth a repeat visit."

  • "Enjoyed the experience;however, the entree selected came off as a little dry. Probably should have said something about it the staff , but my party and I were hungry and had business to conduct. Additionally, consider adding just a little more to the portions and try serving bread warm."

  • "Waiter did a great job with wine and offered great wine in my price range."

  • "We needed to eat close to the theater so we wanted to give The Asbury a try. We are very glad we did! We ate their catfish and their scallops - both were very tasty and well presented. Our favorite, though, from the meal was the BBQ Potato Wedges. Ummm! We skipped the ginger ketchup (even sounds unappetizing when typed - uck!), though. We recommend you give the place a try but a word of warning would be: It is rather small. That means book (here!) early. They were FULL the night we ate there."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "by way of The Harvest Moon Grille, I have to say we were a little trepidatious about this new venture now known as The Asbury. We were pleased with our overall dinning experience. There were 6 of us & we thoroughly sampled the dinner menu. Notable mentions go to Maw Maw's Cast Iron Drop Biscuits, Chorizo Sausage Balls, Butterbean Hummus, Blenheim Tempura Oysters, & the Roasted Beets. Uncle Scott's Braised Beef Short Rib & Butter-Poached NC Shrimp were very well recieved. The one & only flop was the Red Wattle Ramen, which used thick Udon noodles rather than the described thin Ramen noodles we were expecting. It's worth a trip Uptown & we'll be back again."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The cast iron drop biscuits were fantastic! My husband wished the pimiento cheese omelet had more cheese, and I wished my pork belly benedict had more pork belly. Would have paid a bit more for it. What sticks out the most? The bread! Both the biscuits and the sourdough were wonderful."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The food at The Asbury was exciting and unique. Our waiter made fantastic recommendations and was obviously quite knowledgeable about all the local ingredients. We had a fantastic meal and will definitely be back next time we are in uptown!"

  • "This was our first visit to Asbury three weeks after opening and overall had a very good experience. Our reservations were for 6 p.m. with a 8 p.m. concert time. All the tables were full and while the appetizers came quickly, the entrees were a little long in arriving. When asked about coffee and dessert the server told us the kitchen was busy preparing for all the tables and they may not be able to serve within 15 minutes to allow us time to eat and make the performance. The waitress checked with the chef regarding gluten-free and dairy-free options which were not noted on the menu. We enjoyed all our items which included seafood and meat entrees and an assortment of appetizers."

  • "and yummy. I had the 62 degree egg and cured trout. It was a truly delicate dish, not boring, not bland, delicate. The oyster appetizer has a wonderful mix of flavors. The chocolate cake was truly dark and the coffee accents top notch. Husband had scallops and enjoyed every bite."
