Great water. Good social distancing inside restaurant. Great food! Good value!
Must have brunch in Asheville! Loved every moment of it.
Great selection and atmosphere. Salty food and had a difficult time using a gift charge
1St time there. Chicken was great. Cocktails were great. And out Server was awesome. Wish all servers were like him and I'm kicking myself for not remembering his name for this post.
One improvement needed though. Put some cushions on your bench and chairs in your bar area.
Delicious! Excellent service as well. It lives up to the hype!
My husband and I both loved our food. The banana pudding is the best I've had! Our server was kind and helpful. The restaurant was cute. Overall a great experience, and I would highly recommend it!
Delicious sangria, Brussels sprouts appetizer, and banana pudding!
They have decreased space for tables with trying to allow for social distancing so you need a reservation several days ahead of when you want to eat there. They were very hospitable and conscientious. The waitress was also the bar tender and did a good job of tending to our needs. The pork dish was amazing and so tender. The brussel sprouts and okra were a little too salty for our taste but still very good. The fried green tomatoes were excellent. Too much dinner to do dessert but I can imagine they were also top notch. Plan ahead it's a place you want to be able to experience.
Food is great but drinks were a weird size and terribly overpriced for what you actually received.
Great service and best fried chicken and fried green tomatoes!
I was able to reserve a table for our group of 4 outside on the patio. I felt as safe as one can feel while outdoors at a restaurant during the pandemic. Our server was very friendly and efficient. The food was good.
Food was terrific! Best fried pickles in the land! Great service too.
A great restaurant for amazing southern cuisine and drinks. The fried chicken was by far the best I have ever had, I highly recommend it. The house rye ale was also incredibly good.
Great drinks and southern style comfort food. It is a good place for a casual meal.
Our meal was very good! We were seated outside on the patio. The only downside was a bunch of bees were flying around our table at the end, which was not very pleasant.
Very nice dinner - enjoyed the outdoor seating. Was disappointed the meatloaf wasn’t available but had the amazing shrimp and grits instead. Highly recommend - they did a great job with the Covid measures
The service was great as was the food and for a very good price point. Very happy we made reservations! Would definitely go back!
Everything we tried was delicious from the pork and meatloaf to the salt and pepper brussels, potatoes, and collards.
Stopped here on our way back to Florida, gets pretty busy so had to take the 4pm dinner slot. Sat at the bar and Sarah was great! Had fried green tomatoes-nice touch with the grits, honey dusted chicken was moist (got the white meat), and the Mac n cheese was fantastic! I highly recommend if you are into southern comfort food!
The food was average, cold, and overpriced
Had an 1145 reservation, checked on early, table not ready and they forgot about us...20 minutes later I asked again and we were seated after they had seated at least 10 other parties.
Food was good. Wait staff attentive.
This was my first time here and it was awesome!!! The Brussel sprouts were delicious. Loved everything about my meal. Will definitely come back.
Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The biscuits were amazing
Fantastic food selection and quality along with great service. This restaurant will be added to our list of regular Asheville stops.
The sweet & spicy fried chicken was extraordinary. I added baked Mac $ cheese for a truly southern experience and tried the Wildflower Mule which was so light and refreshing. My reservation for 1 was at the bar and the 2 female bartenders that served me were so friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The hostesses were also very kind too, especially when I rushed in a few min late due to a blocked road. The ambience, cleanliness and incredible food was unforgettable and something I will try to repeat as soon as possible!
Tori was amazing!
This was our second time dining here and it was just as good as the first time. Every single item we ordered was outstanding.
Always reliable and fun. The food is delicious. Cheers!
Food and service were good. We sat outside and the nearby construction noise was very unpleasant.
Walking up would have been faster than reservations.
They hold more tables for walk-in than reservations.
At 8:30 the only reservation available was 12:30. No one after 10:30 waited more than 45 minutes .
815 reservation, seated at 830. had to wait outside. then seated outside and it was uncomfortably cool out, we werent prepared for outdoor seating. we had reserved "bar seating" Jessica, the waitress was friendly. the biscuits were dry, the butter was too cold to spread. the brussel sprouts were burnt and the fried okra was old where the breading had hardened and tasted stale. Jessica offered to replace them but I lost my confidence in their skills. The pork shoulder was ok. My husband had fried chicken with gravy, with mashed potatoes and green beans. The gravy was not even warm. The green beans were parcooked. Nothing here was worth the price. Coffee and sodas were never refilled or offered to be refilled. Declined dessert b/c I didnt want to be more disappointed.
We sat at the bar and service was excellent! Our cauliflower appetizer was delicious and spicy as promised. We both had the shrimp and grits. Wow, best we ever had!!
Tupelo Honey was recommended to us and our dinner exceeded our expectations. Best friend chicken ever and the banana pudding was off the charts. Great food, great value and our waitress was warm, friendly and efficient!
Social distancing in the restaurant was not very well done at all. But the food and service were great! If it weren’t in the middle of a pandemic I would definitely return.
Food was good, so was service! We all enjoyed everything.
Great meal while visiting Asheville
Tupelo Honey lived up to the hype! So glad we made reservations! It was fun & delish!!
This is my very first review of anything publicly. My husband and two teenagers went for breakfast on a Tuesday around 11:00 a.m. It was our first time at the establishment. We used OpenTable to reserve in advance (otherwise it's often a 1-2 hour wait). My order was received and was incorrect. No big deal. Waited and waited and waited for server to reappear, but she did not. Approached who appeared to be a manager overseeing the food coming out of the kitchen, and he was clearly irritated at me for bothering him. When I stated my order was incorrect, he snidely remarked that I ordered the french toast plain. I did not and tried to tell him so. He proceeded to show irritation with huffing and puffing, and when the food was returned, it was without butter or powdered sugar, which was asked for again, and those were delivered with another negative comment or sound (I don't remember other than it wasn't nice). When food returned, the french toast was cold; not lukewarm, not cool - cold. I was in no way going to re-approach anyone. On top of it, I do believe the french toast was $15. It was two slices of thin bread, not the thick brioche you'd expect. My husband's omelet was "fair" in his opinion, and both teenagers had fries and fried chicken, which they said was good. $64 not including tip.
The food is AMAZING! The menu is extensive and there is something for everyone. Be ready to eat, the portions are good! Only negative is that we were brought 2 tea cups that were dirty. Our waiter did not apologize or seem concerned, he just replaced them. I would still highly recommend this place, it so worth it!
Overall a great experience all around. Little pricey but for downtown you have to expect that
