Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home. We craft brunches, lunches and suppers that bring family and friends around the table and allow for conversations and cocktails to linger longer than usual. Always scratch-made, always responsibly-soured, and always Southern.

We Have Proudly Served Fresh, Made-from-scratch and "Forever Free" Food for over 20 Years: We started as a scratch-made, farm to table restaurant in Asheville, NC in 2000 because we believed food should be good for our guests and for the planet. Today, forever free means the majority of our proteins were raised without antibiotics or hormones. We thoughtfully source ingredients like sustainably-farmed fish, wild-caught shrimp and regionally-sourced wheat and corn from century-old family mills

So to start we didn’t wait long to be seated that was a plus! However our both Appetizers the Brussels and Fried Tomatoes were cold! My Mac and Cheese had a hair in it and The grits in the shrimp and grits were cold! We enjoyed the drinks so will be returning for those but not the food.. We had no choice but to stay and eat as it was nothing else available for Mother’s Day!

The fried chicken was some of the best we've had. The sides were plentiful and delicious, and we loved the pecan pie and banana pudding (perfect for sharing). Only downside was the service: it took 20 minutes to get our drinks. Our apps arrived before our drinks. Would definitely go back.

The famous biscuits weren't as good and the Shrimp and Grits had a lot more grease. Overall still good but our experience was that it was no where near as good as Asheville.

Were seated in a booth for 4. Table was not wiped clean completely; dry sticky honey 🤷‍♂️ Water glass had a funky smell/taste to it. The waitress did not know that the item we asked about was actually on the menu, but luckily we happened to find it and were able to order. TBF she said she was new. Food arrived in a reasonable amount of time and was good. Forgot a kid's drink, but brought out promptly. Perhaps we just got a little unlucky with a newish employee, so will give it another shot.

My wife’s food (chicken and waffles as better. I think they were just super busy we are definitely going to give it one more try this place has great potential. Also our waitress was the nicest person.

We definitely got it. Everything was excellent from the food to the service. Highly recommend!

My husband and I were in town for a UNC Chapel Hill graduation and this was the closest I could stay to Chapel Hill that was affordable. I knew I was in NC State territory; I am an old school Wolfpack, Jimmy V fan. I loved the decor and ambiance. You can be dressed up, down and/or somewhere in between. The food was delicious and our server, was busy, yet efficient. I still see restaurants short staffed and I try to do my best to take care of servers. We purchased the biscuits which helps the staff, I put some tip on the card and some in cash. I feel with gas prices, everyone can use some pocket cash to pay for gas. If we return to the area, we will visit Tupelo again. Thank you for a nice night out. Best Regards, Mr and Mrs Garden State

This time, not so much. Most of the food tasted as if it had been cooked the day before and we were eating leftovers. The mac and cheese, Brussel sprouts, and fried chicken all were very dry, and some items that we remembered and were looking forward to were no longer on the menu. The grits with feta cheese were very good and the shishito peppers were delicious, but overall the food was disappointing. Our server was excellent - accommodating, conscientious, and he had a welcoming and pleasant personality.

But we had a reservation, we were on time, and still waited an hour to be seated. That was inconvenient and frustrating. I would suggest not allowing the reservation if it can't be accommodated. Also, reservations should obviously be seated before walk-ins but I'm not sure if that was being followed. I will give them another try because the food and ambiance we're really good.

The food was good, mostly tasty. The biscuits for a cause were a bit more crumbly than expected, but paired well the blueberry jam. Unfortunately, the butter was too hard to spread on the biscuit; would have been better if a light whipped butter. They had a unique spin on chicken and waffles, but sadly the waffles with mac n cheese inside were a bit dry. Enhanced with a bit of syrup. The meatloaf was absolutely delicious.
