    We came here hoping for some really good fried chicken. The regular fired chicken lacked some flavor . It would of been nice to include 2 sides and a biscuit with the order and either gravy or a hot honey sauce. We weren’t offered any if they had it . It was good because we were starving, but not great.

    I love Tupelo Honey! I first visited this place with my Sister in 2021 for Thanksgiving. I loved the ambiance and the food especially the Fried Okra (they had it then on their menu). I later came back to Asheville with my boyfriend and he loved the restaurant too. This became our go to place in Asheville. So now when we plan to go Asheville, all our plans are centered around Tupelo Honey 😀

    We sat next to the kitchen, so we had front row seats to watch each order filled - Wow! Everything looked & smelled amazing. The biscuits with blueberry jam … yum. The pimento cheese sandwich with fried green tomatoes … double yum. Before our food arrived, we decided we will be back.

    Service was great, cool atmosphere! It was highly recommended to my wife and I and we both think it was just average. Definitely thought it was going to blow us away.

    Food was great, service at the Bar seemed a bit rushed at first. Noise level was refreshingly low. The wine selection was limited but good. A good choice and one I’d make again.

    Service was good, we were even a little early and they sat us right away. We’ve eaten there before but made bad food choices this go round. Spicy chicken was just ok, disappointed in the fried cauliflower entree and chicken tortilla soup was poor. We will, however, try again.

    We really enjoyed dining at the bar! Beautiful faux three dimensional artwork of Blue Ridge Mountain behind the bar. Service from bartender was excellent. She was friendly and helpful. Shrimp and Grits & Fried Chicken were our entrées. Both were delicious as were the blood orange margaritas. Would definitely return and recommend.

    Overall a good experience. One side order was forgotten and one drink wasn’t as it was supposed to be but we were compensated with a complimentary dessert to share when we brought it to our servers attention. A great place for brunch and we will definitely be patronizing it again when in the region. It is a very popular place so a prior reservation is definitely required.
