    Tupelo Honey never disappoints! There menu is up to date with seasonal items, and it was a perfect girls luncheon! I had fried green tomato sandwich with chicken tortilla soup, both good, with crisp tomatoes, and warm chunky soup….both better than average……! Thanks!

    Chicken was over cooked or reheated. Returned to kitchen. We were a table of 8. Chile lime sauce was horrible. I was hoping for an excellent dinner and was surprised as the rating of this restaurant has been excellent for years. For a Sunday night there were few people in the restaurant. Maybe the neighborhood knew something I did not. I live in North Asheville.

    Good food....slow service...the pork in a skillet was the star. Chicken smothered in gravy, and avacado toast were excellent too. Blueberry Lavender Mimosas to wash it all down!!! Must visit breakfast/brunch when in Ashville

    Location: good, easy to find, ample parking. Atmosphere: very eclectic. Service: Okay, Servers are identified by their aprons. Our Server was nice but didn’t stop by to check on us until we were almost finished with our meal, and he didn’t actually stop at our table. We were seated close to the Server p/u at the Bar which he was standing at when he turned to ask how we were doing. Food: Okay, we ordered their Honey dusted fried chicken which had no taste of Honey at all. One of our sides was their Parmesan and rosemary potatoes, they were overcooked and oily, and didn’t have any taste of Parmesan. We made our reservations for this restaurant based on some of the reviews on Google and Open Table before we left for our vacation to Asheville. This restaurant does Not measure up to the reviews. This is a One and Done for us!!! Do Not Recommend!!!

    The food was okay. I had a Cobb salad and mine was really good. But I couldn’t get the servers attention to bring me more salad dressing. My husband had the half chicken and grits. He did like the chicken but not the grits. It is okay food. Nothing to go back for. The service was not good and that definitely affected how we felt.

    The server was working the whole bar area alone, the wrong food came out, the food wasn’t prepared well, the macaroni and cheese was noodles with loads of shredded cheese that looked like it was microwaved together.

    We were there on a Thursday morning…very few people in restaurant. Because there were so few customers, we thought we might get food quickly and get excellent service. Instead, we got luke-warm food and basically apathetic service. Not Tupelo’s best, for sure.

    I have eaten at Tupelo many times and am always impressed with the food and service. However, I was even more impressed by our most recent experience. We made a last minute reservation for a big party and Tupelo Honey did such a good job accommodating our large party. The restaurant was quiet at the time but the ambiance was very bright and welcoming. The food was delicious. Most of us ordered the breakfast bowl or the shrimp and grits and all of us could have licked the bowl! Thanks so much for a great experience!

    Living in the Baltimore-DC corridor, I’ve often been disappointed in a lot of the pricey, highly rated dining options in either of those two cities. Neither seemed to compare to the top-rated places I’ve been to in the Philly area, where many of our relatives live. All that is an intro to state that Tupelo Honey is the first place we ate at in the Asheville area, and if other options are as good then Asheville will be much closer to the Philly area than the Baltimore-Washington area. Everything I had there, including the leftovers from my daughter’s mac-and-cheese, were among the best things I’ve ever tasted. We had the cauliflower as an appetizer, and I had the smothered chicken with crispy Brussels sprouts and a bowl of tortilla soup as sides, and they were all exceptional. My daughter and I also both had the banana pudding for desert. I’ve never had a banana pudding I didn’t like, but this too was exceptional. We will definitely be returning during our stay in the Asheville area.

I know quite a few of us remember talking to you, and you were an absolute joy to serve. We know it may be awhile, but we can't wait to see ya'll again! Drive safely. See you on your next vacation!

    Food is very good at reasonable prices. Drinks are expensive - $8.50 for local draft and 9.50 for small glass of wine. Food is served quickly which can be a good thing but maybe too fast. In and out in an hour. Usually able to get reservations on short notice.

    They should fry shellfish in another fryer. For people with shellfish allergies they are unable to eat half the menu there. Not even Brussels sprouts or potato’s because they use the same oil.
