They do not disappoint. This is the third time I've been. The service is great and the food delicious. I love this restaurant.
Restaurant was nice however the food we ordered was ok at best. I ordered meatloaf and it was overcooked with Luke warm potatoes. My wife ordered fried chicken which was very good but the Mac and cheese was not.
I won’t be going back anytime soon.
The South Asheville location is a bit sterile in ambiance. The contactless on-line menu page is difficult to get to and not the easiest to work from. However like the downtown location, the food was solid including a fried cauliflower bites app a fried green tomato app. The cast iron pork with a sweet siracha sauce was spot on - hot but not too hot, good and not over cooked collard greens and their version of smashed potatoes with rosemary were wonderful. A bbq bacon cheeseburger was good but predictable. All in all a good dining experience and if you are down that way certainly worth a stop.
Shoo Mercy Griddle is to die for!
As always Tupelo was outstanding. 2nd time we were there and it won't be the last. Fried chicken is the best around.
Great food and service!!
Everything we had was delicious! But the sweet pancakes are a must have !
Good food, not a very large menu, the appetizers where very good, both pimento cheese dip and the cauliflower are worth ordering. Service was pretty good, but occasionally inconsistent because it was getting later, though closing at 9 on Friday seems a little early. We didn't realize they closed that early or would've booked for earlier. By the time we wanted to order dessert all the wait staff seemed to be in back doing side work.
Felt very safe in the Covid restricted space. Great food and friendly staff🤗
Just good quality food in a family friendly atmosphere and good service. If you like good southern cuisine, this is an excellent choice.
Consistently good food. Service was distracted, but friendly.
Food - excellent on all cylinders! Service - excellent in every way! Our waiter made sure we felt safe and taken care of esp. in the midst of the worry all around us! He took great care of my family.
This place used to be so much better. Now the chicken is just dry and over cooked and the service is mediocre. Had to wait 20 minutes just to get our drinks and they came out with our food.
The absolute BEST food I have ever eaten. This place’s menu is amazing
Great food! Great service!
Booking was easy. Tupelo's even called me the day of to make sure everything was good. The hostess was nice, our server was competent, our food was delicious. Highly recommend!
great service and food!
Again, Tupelo Honey never fails! Chicken and biscuits are the perfect comfort brunch food!
Everything from the food to the service was amazing. We were visiting from out of town and it made us wish we had a Tupelo Honey local to us. We will DEFINITELY be dining here again on our next visit.
Normally love going to Tupelo but this location was the worst one I’ve been to. The biscuits were dry and hard and my burger was burnt (I mean completely black). Love this restaurant chain so I was unfortunately highly disappointed in this dinning experience.
In our new reality, it's nice to find a place with awesome outdoor dining!
Before this, I tried the Myrtle Beach location. Fried chicken was dry and tasted like it had been out of the fryer for a good hour or so. Friend green tomatoes were flavorless (apart from the toppings).
Then tried this South Asheville location. Cauliflower bites unseasoned (and unsalted), as were the loaded "potato cracklins". The Southern "revival" shrimp and grits had no sausage and the sauce tasted (and smelled) strongly of fish stock; the grilled lemon was the saving grace that made this edible.
Other diner got an avocado eggs benedict that tasted like seafood—fish or crab, depending which taster you asked. Will chalk that one up to an unintended kitchen error.
Cobb salad was lovely; grilled chicken perfectly cooked and seasoned.
Fried pickles unseasoned, but the pickle thickness and breading was excellent.
Cocktails slightly above average; mimosas below.
Very disappointed. The chicken was over cooked. Nothing had much favor also not all of the food was brought out at once. Also ran out of sauce for their honey spicy chicken, don’t know how that happens. The was overall cold just very disappointing!
Before we finished the appetizer they served our entree. I ordered the honey dusted fried chicken which was not hot and the meat was extremely dry and not at all tasty.
Great french toast! Pulled pork grilled cheese was also very delicious.
Honestly the food was unseasoned and disappointing. Everyone was very very nice though
Delicious meal, fantastic attentive service.
Loved it! All four of our meals were amazingly delicious and the service excellent! Gave a four for ambiance because it was a little bright. But just my personal taste🤷♀️😄. Go! Eat there! You won’t be disappointed!😊
The food here is extremely creative and full of flavor. Outstanding! Ask for Jaimie. She’s amazing. We’ll be back next time we’re in Asheville!
Food was very good even though the restaurant was out of catfish. Very clean and well spaced tables. We enjoyed our evening meal and also had a delicious brunch there the day before.
Great food and great people working there!
Great food, wonderful server
Great service and excellent food!
It was fine - not terrible, not great. The pimento cheese appetizer was cold and they cooked my burger wrong twice. I asked for it medium and it came well done. They took it back to fix it and it came well done again. By that time, my fries were cold and I was full from the appetizers. The fried green tomatoes were delicious!
This was my second visit to this Tupelo Honey location and it was great, just like the first one. We travel to Asheville and this is now my go to place. Staff is friendly and helpful. The food is fresh, fresh, fresh and the menu is so interesting. I highly recommend Tupelo Honey South Asheville.
Was ok food, nothing special. Fried Chicken breasts were dry. Mac & Cheese tasted leftover and was also dry. Side salad was good but I prefer smaller pieces. Also plates so small when you try to cut food it comes off, not good.
Husband’s birthday brunch before the Biltmore tour
Didn’t have what I wanted on the menu . Getting rid of the mountain harvest bowl and frie cauliflower was a bad idea . The waitress didn’t even let us know before ordering about me I changed I’m never returning to that Tupelo . Drove to Greenville and they had it for now that is
My husband and I were traveling for the Holiday and wanted a good filling brunch spot to fill up before we went explore. Our meal was delicious and the staff was very nice I definitely recommend this to friends!
Atmosphere, service and food very nice. Definitely will visit again soon.
