Wonderful location. The outdoor patio had such a great atmosphere to it. We even got to take our dog with us to enjoy the patio and they even had a doggy menu. Brought out water for him, also! Food and drinks for us humans was pretty fabulous, as well. We will definitely come back again.

This is one of our favorite spots for lunch. The restaurant has been completely remodeled with more of an urban feel but , thankfully, they kept some country touches. The food is always good as is the service.

Really enjoyed dinner on Mother's Day. The redesign of the restaurant was fantastic. It seem lighter and more relaxed. The food seemed to have improved from our last visit as well. Great service as well - very attentive but not disruptive of the meal. Thanks to the Tupelo team for a great Mother's Day experience!

We dined here on Mother’s Day, so of course it was busy, but there were still several open tables. I wish they would have honored my request for a booth, but we were seated at a table. The server had a lot of tables, and we seemed to wait a very long time for beverages, the arrival of our food etc. but not so long that it ruined the pace of the meal.

They have remodeled since the last time we dined here, and it doesn’t particularly feel cozy or high end. The previous decor was actually much better. It is very loud in this restaurant because there is absolutely nothing to absorb the sound.

The food was good, although I preferred some of the previous dishes they executed well ... such as sweet potato fries. Overall it is still a nice restaurant, it just looks to me as if as they are growing and expanding into a chain some of the unique “ Ashevilleness” has been lost.

I wish I could remember our servers name (I just remember her white adidas shell tops with black stripes) but, came on Mother’s Day with my family. Our server was super sweet and attentive, paid attention to our special requests and also didn’t make us feel rushed when we stayed a little longer we wanted to all catch up. Food was great too!

Fantastic as usual! This time was Mother’s Day brunch and it was great! The menu has changed a little from our last visit but still amazing enough that deciding what to choose is a good kind of difficult. They have opened up the floor plan with many more tables and less booths. Nicely done!
Delicious and enjoyable, give them a try!

I think because of Mother's Day they took on more than they could handle. I have eaten there before and would rate those times much higher than Mother's Day. We had to wait 30 minutes when we already had a reservation. The food was good and the staff was nice.

It was Mother's Day and quite crowded. I chose to come here as I love Tupelo Honey based on my experiences when I lived in Greenville, SC and now in Myrtle Beach, both of which have the restaurant. We were surprised that this location's brunch did not include any drink specials. The other two locations offer $3 mimosas and $3 bloody marys with brunch. We all were really looking forward to getting the mimosas. We were sadly disappointed that their mimosas were full priced at around $9. I asked why not even on mother's day and they just blankly stared at me.
However, we had excellent service and the food was great. Just wish the offered what the other Tupelo's offered and that they had some kind of special drink at discount for mothers on Mother's day.

Renovations look great. Service very good. New bowls on menu were not well liked and missed the old menu. But - the new burger was much better than the old one! So, some good changes and some not so good. Fried chicken had smaller pieces (maybe not pumped with stuff like other chickens?) but was also overcooked a bit. We didn't complain as it wasn't "bad" just not great! My salmon onto of the roasted beet salad was done perfectly - which is pretty hard to do!

Overall good I think there needs to be more thought in the grilled cheese bbq pork sandwich. More chess and the bread not quite right and the pork was tasty but a little dry. Other than that service and the Mac n cheese bites and the fried chicken all very good. The new decor is very nice, but still very noisy.

The food was excellent and the prices were too. They fell a bit short on the service though. We had to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation time to be seated, our server brought our food but not utensils or napkins, and I didn't even get the second Megamosa that I ordered. It was very busy that day, so maybe on a less busy day it would be better.

We dine often at Tupelo Honey but this visit was a disaster. This visit was Easter and taking our daughter and son in law and his parents to brunch as the kids had been at the hospital for 10 days without leaving since their son was born 7 weeks premature. They had limited time to eat due to having to return to feed baby. I had initially made res for 1:30 but was told by open table we would have to sit at high top table but since my wife was just a few days post back surgery I knew she would have difficulty sitting at high top so I changed to 1:15 as it said regular table would be available. We arrived at 1:03pm in differential vehicles and just as I pulled in I received email advising reservation had been cancelled?? As it turns out that was the exact moment my wife had gone in and checked in for the res. When my wife checked in she was told our table was being cleaned and noticed a 6 top being cleaned. She then watched a different hostess seat some folks that had just walked up and checked in for a 1:30 res. When I entered and advised hostess about cancellation email everyone looked surprised and someone made the comment our res had been cancelled! They assured us we would be seated. We were eventually seated at 1:27. Our waitress eventually took our drink order and did not return to take our meal order until 1:43 (keep in mind about our situation and limited time due to baby in NICU). ON top of all of this we were seated at a high top and when I mentioned changing res for this exact reason and my wife’s surgery the hostess stated that was all that was available since TH was booked (not my problem)Our waitress was VERY unfriendly which is not at all our typical TH experience. Needless to say this entire visit was less than what we are accustomed to at TH and if it had merely been the res issue I would not say a word. We typically receive a visit from management but we could not even spot a manager to discuss! Very disappointed

Yummy food in large portions. Everyone at our table had something different and everyone reported theirs to be delicious. Seems like the menu is one where you can’t go wrong. Service was excellent. Ambiance is 4 out of 5 for this trip because we were placed directly next to the patio door. This wouldn’t have been an issue except we were a party of five, so our party on the end got blasted with cold air every time the door opened. We will definitely be back and hopefully have better seats (or better temperatures!) next time.
