We expected more from Tupelo Honey in Arden than we experienced. Although we had a reservation and many booths were empty, were were first seated in the middle of the room. Food was very average or even below . Fried chicken dark meat was dry, French fries were limp. The staff did their jobs but were indifferent to customers. It was a disappointing dinner. This was on Sun, Sept 20 at 6pm. Maybe your staffers and cooks could notch it up a bit and act as if they care about their jobs! It will be a long time before we return. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to offer what we hope is constructive criticism!

We sat outside with our dog and they brought her a separate doggy menu. She ordered bacon with peanut butter. Our waitress was incredible- top notch service. And you can’t beat the brunch menu.

Great food! We booked an outside table and it was cooler than expected. At this point, they don’t have heaters outside, so bring a jacket!

Not worth the money. A small glass of Sauvignon Blanc $14.00; this is not a five star venue. The pork was dry, the salmon overcooked and smeared in a very poor sauce.

We dined for lunch at the South Asheville location, and highly recommend. We had the lunch special combo, which was perfect. I would have liked to have additional sandwich options, but everything was very tasty, especially the collards! Don’t skip dessert, the pecan pie is outstanding! Our waiter was excellent and very personable and professional. Felt very safe as you could see all the steps the are taking disinfecting. Will definitely be back!

Great food. I was hoping for Eggs Benedict when I came in, but it was a weekday and they only serve them on Saturday/Sunday. Otherwise, my review would have been 5 stars.

They sat us at our reservation time and service was timely. Food was excellent and not too expensive. We were seated right next to the kitchen entrance and the pay station, so there was quite a bit of commotion and noise from the staff very close by. Also, our waitress was just ok.

I was in Asheville for only one day. I found this restaurant online and decided to give it a try.

They did not disappoint!! The food was AMAZING, brought out fast, and the servings were perfect for the price.

I’m so glad we made reservations for Labor Day. When we arrived we were taken to our table immediately and the server promptly arrived. He engaged us with nice conversation as he discovered we were from SC. I did over heard that there was 2 half hour wait to be seated if had no reservation. Every time we go to Asheville we choose the South Location mainly because of its size and always have friendly customer service.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at how delicious the fried chicken and sides were. My husband is very picky about his fried chicken because he can whip up some at home but Tupelo Honey's was a slam dunk. It was crisp yet moist and flavorful. Go hungry and savor their food.

Tupelo Honey is definitely a repeater. I was visiting from out of town and had heard how good the restaurant is. They did a great job with social distancing. Our waitress was attentive and we had great service. The appetizers and entrées lived up to their reputation. Two thumbs up!
