Brunch on Sunday was the final meal of our Galentine's/foodie weekend in Asheville. We arrived right at noon (our reservation time) and checked in, but it was another 20 minutes before we were seated. (Wait time for walk-ins was 1.5 hours). This is the only negative part of the experience.
Our server was fantastic - charming and efficient. We had biscuits, honey and blackberry jam on the table very quickly. My friends ordered avocado toast and soup, which they loved. I did a make-your-own combo of bacon, pancakes, parmesan potatoes and goat cheese grits. The pancakes were probably the best I've ever had - did not instantly turn to mush. The potatoes were fabulous. The bacon that arrived on the plate was unfortunately limp. I told a passing server (not ours) who had a plate of crisp, perfect bacon in front of me in less than a minute!!! We could not finish, and boxes were produced and bills paid (separate checks) with speed and grace. This is my 3rd visit to Tupelo Honey (other 2 were downtown Asheville) and I can't wait to go back!

Unfortunately we started with a hair in our orange juice. The waiter apologized and brought a new orange juice. After we ordered and received our meal, the eggs were left off the breakfast bowl, they forgot an order of grits and the poached eggs were overcooked. Brought to our waiter’s attention and he did apologize. Never saw a manager and received nothing off the bill. I am a chef and I know how these situations are normally handled. We were totally disappointed with the lack of response.

Ordered the dark meat chicken with one side. Total ripoff. 3 small pieces of chicken that had very little meat. The side was a small amount of veggies. $13 for about $2 worth of food. Went home and had dinner as this clearly did nothing to eliminate my hunger. Won't be returning. Waitress was very nice.

My wife and I went there for Valentine’s Day after previously going there with another couple on New Year’s Eve and thoroughly enjoying dinner. This time, it was a huge disappointment. The fried chicken was very dry and the side of potatoes minuscule. Even the biscuits were overdone. Only the Brussel sprouts were good. Finally, the wine pour was perhaps the smallest I have ever experienced. My wife and I eat out 5-6 times per week and this experience certainly makes us hesitant to return.

The ambiance is awesome and the food and service are fantastic. I eat at South Asheville location quite often and it is a great restaurant for any occasion. The staff always go the extra mile and the Manager Alisa and the server also named Alisa are extremely professional.

Our server Jami was AMAZING! Her suggestions were spot on and she was in tune with the flow of our table. My cousin and I hadn’t seen each other in ten years and had a lot to catch up on. Jami stopped by the offering refills and checking on us enough, but too much. She was also fun. She made us feel comfortable staying as long as we did and welcome to stay longer. Would go back again for the food and would request her section!

This was our first trip to Tupelo honey. The food exceeded my expectations. Everything we had was delicious. The service was great but not as fast as we had hoped since we came in hungry. It was a busy evening for them and everyone was very nice. We will definitely be back very soon. It was a great dining experience.

Only because I have been to the downtown location and like the ambiance much better there. Hope they don't change alot with renovation. Also I have only been for brunch and that food is exceptional,
willing to pay a little more. Dinner at South was just OK and bang for your buck was not there.

Surprised of the limit of vegetarian options as well, Asheville is know for supporting this culture and my son had few options for dinner. As well as any substitution was an upcharge.

We had made our reservation at the South Asheville location and had thought it was downtown. As soon as we realized our mistake we called and told them we were on our way. The hostess promptly informed us if we weren't there within 15 minutes of our scheduled reservation time we would have to go to the bottom of the wait list.
We are regular customers of Tuepalo Honey and made an honest mistake! My party and I felt like this was extremely poor customer service and simply rude.
We will not be back, too many other options in the Asheville area!

Mediocre at best. Very bright, very loud and very mediocre. Food was just ok, ambiance was like a Denny’s and the service was forgetful as were all the waitstaff we encountered. Fried green tomatoes weren’t hot, goat cheese grits were watery, Cobb salad was about like Wendy’s just a bit more bacon and the coffee was luke warm. The last time we went here it wasn’t much better. Downtown location is far superior.

Tupelo Honey was recommenced to me by multiple people. We wanted to go to the one in downtown, but it’s closed for renovations. My boyfriend & I loved their complimentary biscuits and chicken dip. Other than that, our food was like a fancy Cracker Barrel. Overall, pretty disappointed.

We had reservations at 7:30 but arrived a little early. We decided to have a drink before dinner at the bar. Our bartender was so great we decided to eat dinner right at the bar. The drinks were amazing and every recommendation he gave for food was spot on. We felt like we were regulars and thoroughly enjoyed every part of our evening.

Service was great. Food was just ok. Appetizers were fried pickles, came out on a large platter but they were dumped out in a pile so the ones on top were good but after that just soggy. Baked chicken tasted like leftover chicken that was reheated with sweet tea poured on top. It was BAD! Sides and salad were good. Felt like a waste of money. Won’t return.

I had been to the Tupelo Honey in Knoxville, and it was simply AMAZING. I was was excited to share this amazing restaurant with my husband during a recent vacation to Asheville. We didn't mind driving out, since the downtown one was under renovation; however, as soon as we pulled up we were like, "Oh, it's in a strip mall."

While well decorated, the ambiance, food and service were just not up to par. In Knoxville, it was the food was so good I had to immediately text friends to say how amazing it was. This location just does not live up to the hype, and overall we were completely underwhelmed.
