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.

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.

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.

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!😊

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.

I’ve been to this restaurant 3 times, but never this location. The service was excellent, but the food I got was mediocre. I ordered a veggie bowl with roasted veggies. The veggies tasted like they were roasted 5 days prior, the cauliflower rice was mush and tasted. It was really not a good dish. I paid extra for grilled shrimp, which smelled very fishy and were tasteless. I I also ordered a fried green tomato appetizer with grits and some kind of bitter tomato sauce. The ONLY good thing was my Bloody Mary. Really disappointed at the overpriced mediocre food at this location.

What happened to the biscuits!?!?!?!! These were not soft, flakely, buttery, Buttermilk biscuits. They were like red lobster biscuits without the cheese. We hadn't been in, in over a year due to military orders but we always go to tupelo when we come back to visit. I'm unsure if this will be the case moving forward. It seems that the main stream has killed this gem.
