Contemporary Southern
With its warm service and artistic food presentation, The Asbury at The Dunhill Hotel puts a sophisticated spin on the local food movement and traditional Southern dishes. The Asbury is a tribute to Charlotte’s southern roots and the culturally diverse community of the New South. There is a strong tie to heirloom ingredients native to the area and specialty items grown by small, family farms throughout the local region.

Located on the corner of N. Tryon & 6th Streets at the heart of Uptown Charlotte’s cultural district, it’s only fitting that the restaurant features regional art curated in collaboration with Sozo Gallery.

Open seven days a week and serving the longest weekend brunch in Charlotte.

Our dining experience was awful and definitely not what was expected from The Asbury. The last time we ate there the food and service was outstanding, which is why when we were attending a concert across the street with friends we immediately wanted to dine there. Our reservations were for 5:30 but the wait staff treated us as if they weren't expecting us. The service was extremely slow and lackluster and the food was awful. Our duck was extremely undercooked, and the portion size of the sides were extremely small. We had to request a steak knife as our waiter only provided butter knives. We left extremely disappointed and will not eat her again nor recommend it to others.

Service was terrible. Highly inattentive and forgetful wait staff. Asked 4x for hot water and never received any. Asked 3x for cinnamon and then finally it arrived. Waited 20 mins for someone, anyone, to grab our dirty dishes and bring check. Any table close to the entrance door is treated to an icy blast of air every time someone enters restaurant. Very disappointing as this restaurant used to be really good.

It was so nice to sit in the lobby of the connected quaint hotel and have a cocktail before going next door to dinner. The food quality at the Asbury is amazing. They use fresh, seasonal ingredients. The service is very attentive and we enjoyed the evening!

Great place and great food. Service was out of sorts it seems and not sure if it was because of the panthers home game traffic. That will not keep me from coming back though

Feel as if you have stepped back to the 1940's in decor and feel. The food is first rate and the prices reasonable. Staff was attentive without being intrusive. I recommend this restaurant and will go back.

Cold food, very bland, no salt or pepper available to improve taste. Rushed service, wine brought while still having cocktails, dessert menu provided while still eating main course, bill brought with dessert. We could hear the conversation of the table clear across the restaurant and at every other table. Disinterested wait staff.

Amazing food and small, quaint dining area right in uptown. Friendly service, reasonable portion sizes, and didn’t break the bank. No complaints!

The food was terrific. As odd as this may seem, The devil eggs were so good I actually ordered them for desert. The grit cake served on a bed of corn, okra, and tomatoes was really special! The menus was inventive and every was prepared well!

Food was pretty good but the atmosphere was dull and felt like a hole in the wall with decorations to disguise it. The food was the only thing I enjoyed.

Went here on a whim for brunch. Smallish restaurant located inside of an historic hotel. Had the chicken and waffles and the chicken and biscuit. Both were very good. The waffles and biscuit were airy in the way that makes you think you can eat bread all day. The chicken... Unbelievably tender. The service was absolutely great and I would definitely go back.

This place is okay. We saw it recommended on a few lists and excitedly, thought we'd check it out. After eating at the establishment for brunch, we would not go back. Service was great, food is just meh.

This restaurant had wonderful reviews so we thought it would be a beautiful spot to have dinner with our family visiting. It’s a hotel restaurant. We made that mistake.

The interior needs to be elevated. The menu was limited, a majority of us ordered the same dish which never happens. I don’t see my husband and I going back.

Nice, slow paced restaurant in the uptown Charlotte area. Casual but with the feel of a finer dining room. Older building, nice table setting. We ordered the special (grouper) delicious...peach salad with greens (would have preferred mixed greens to arugula) but very nicely prepared and the delicious cast iron biscuits. Dined before a show and got in and out in an hour and a half. Would recommend.

As always, The Asbury served fantastic food at great value. Truly, one of the top restaurants in Charlotte. Local food, creatively prepared- not trendy. Just GREAT food. The servers and staff are professional and not stuffy. Our go to for a great meal and great fun.

I've been here a couple times before and the food has never disappointed! Highly recommend their Biscuits and Gravy. This time, our service was a little slow, and the ticket got lost in the kitchen so our food didn't come out for a while. The manager came over and told us what happened though, and he was very apologetic and even discounted our meal! Will definitely be back for Brunch again!

Really enjoyed lunch at The Asbury! The fried green tomato and cucumber salad was exceptional, and the deviled egg appetizer was amazing (I could've eaten an entire plateful of just those eggs). Will definitely go back!

My family and I came for Father's Day brunch. My daughter ordered the omelette, and asked that to leave out the mushrooms. Your waitress responded that the "chef gets upset when we ask to make changes" to the menu items. That certainly was the most unusual response we had ever heard. In general, the food was very average, at best. The macaroni and cheese was tasty. When ordering dessert, the waitress said you were out of the one we had chosen. This was our first visit to the Asbury and it was disappointing.

We had a lovely dinner at The Asbury this past Friday. One of the highlights was the duck heart app. What part of the duck isn't delicious? Service was great. Food was great. Place was a bit quiet for a Friday night though... a little surprised there were not more people considering how good it was.

Unique takes on Southern flavors. The chef's whim Deviled Eggs are a great choice for an appetizer and the Skillet Biscuits are not to be missed, especially if they have the bacon jam. The Fried Green Tomatoes were a great appetizer salad, with perfectly cooked fried green tomatoes served with heirloom tomatoes and cucumbers, dressed perfectly. The Fried Catfish was the among the best that I've tasted, breaded, seasoned and fried perfectly and paired with a tasty Tarragon Potato Salad. Dessert was not to be missed, with perfectly sized portions to compliment a great meal. Service was appropriately leisurely so as not to make us feel rushed.

Had a wonderful dinner with 8 other ladies to celebrate multiple birthdays. The restaurant is small, but that was perfect for our larger group. We were able to have conversations with each other! The service was exceptional. The food was delicious, with beautiful and unique presentations. Great cocktails, too! We really enjoyed our dinner. Will definitely return again.
