    Good, but the dinner I got was just okay. Waffle was kind of dry. Love this place, so will try again, just ordering something different.

    First visit. Came for an early dinner. Restaurant not crowded at all, so very low noise level. Very friendly and helpful server. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with collard greens for the side. Best greens I have ever tasted! Seasoned with bacon. My wife had a roast beef sandwich with grits for the side. She loved it as well. Only complaint is that coffee was not hot. Would definitely return.

    The place is nice and not crowded. It is not downtown Ashville but it is a quiet restaurant to go with the family. The service was a little slow and with little dedication.

    Loud,very open compared to what it used to be..Food good,price reasonably high.Major complaint,bordering on gouging as the cost of drinks.$15-$16 for a cocktail is out of line with the area.This alone precludes me from returning.I do not the idea that I’m being gouged.

    We had family from Atlanta here who can be a pretty tough crowd. By the time we left, they declared they hadn't ever been anywhere in Atlanta that had better food. Our waitress and the staff were all excellent, and we had a great time.

    Nice restaurant. Great staff. Biscuits were dense, but paired well with the honey. Chicken was okay. Something seemed to be missing in the depth of the favor profile. Food was okay, not enough to make a return trip.

    I always enjoy my meal at Tupelo. I had the fried chicken eggs Benedict and my companion enjoyed the bacon and sausage breakfast bowl. Due to the recent water outage they had to close for a few days. I wanted to support them when they opened.

    The food was very average. The biscuits were probably the best thing. The chicken and waffle were ok- very dense and the chicken was scraps of chicken friend and smothered on top of waffles.

    It was a place I can say I went to but probably wouldn’t go back. The waffle was amazing but I didn’t care for the chicken. My husband said the collards were the best he’s ever had but his pork was so spicy he couldn’t even eat it. It was supposed to have sriracha honey glaze but they forgot the honey. The biscuits with honey were good. The honey margarita was horrible and the amaretto sour I ordered was missing the $11 shot of amaretto. Overall I didn’t think the food we ordered was worth the $115 bill we received. The waitress was great and the glasses and dishes they served the food in were pretty neat. If you’re looking for unique food And want extremely spicy food this is the place for you. Tiktok really was a little deceiving lol my daughter has been here twice and recommended it so I know most people like it. It’s just not a hit for us.

    I had Biscuits for a cause that were very average - not light and flaky like they used to be. Smaller in size. Chicken BLT was dry. Bacon was overcooked. No sauce on sandwich Very busy and very noisy. Host and wait staff were great Recommend with reservation.

    The cat head biscuits were delicious, the best part of our meal. My husband and I both ordered meals that were grit centric. The grits were nearly the worst I had, just barely beating Waffle House grits. Someone forgot to add the salt or flavor and it threw off the entire dish. Considering my dish was $20+ , it made for a really disappointing experience.

    Another fabulous dining experience! We live an hour away and a trip to Asheville always try to include Tupelo Honey! The menu is so creative, and the food is amazing! Service is impeccable, our waiter was engaging, attentive and professional. We had brunch today so tried the Eggs Benedict served over slow cooked pork on a biscuit! A MUST try! A gem of a place, put it on your list!

    Fabulous dinner! Our waiter, Sam, was professional and friendly. Our food was fresh and nicely plated. Must order: biscuits and fried green tomatoes. Spicy chicken & waffles nicely prepared but unbalanced- chicken was lost in all that heat. We had no room for the nice dessert list; took one to go! We will absolutely return.

    Ambiance was nice and host was as sweet as could be! However- our server had zero personality, no social cues, and made us feel uncomfortable. She also forgot to put in one of our orders and still wasn’t any more welcoming or nice. Just felt very passive aggressive. Wish the menu had more variety!

    very noisy dining inside (too cold outside). everything we ate was quite good, but just a limited selection. I realize that this isn’t a “fine dining” establishment, but the wine selection was extremely limited. Fried green tomatoes were the hit of the evening, but the meat loaf was a close second.
