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.

Keith greeting us and was the best. Helpful with seating, drinks when our table server was occupied. Table server was not familiar with menu and could use further training. Food was mediocre at best. No seasoning, all dishes were bland - homemade dressing, over cooked "smashed" burger and seafood. House ground burgers should be able to be cooked to guests temp - not the case at The Ashbury. Evening ambience was quiet and nice but daytime overhead lighting was not dimmed. It was VERY bright for evening dining. Disappointed.

Delicious food! I ordered the cauliflower bisque and burger, my date ordered the pork chop. We shared the deviled eggs. All the food was delicious!

Our server was very attentive, polite, and witty. Enjoyed having him as a waiter.

We don't go Uptown very often, but are excited to have found this place.

Dining area was noisy and several menu items were not available. Our server was busy and beads of sweat stayed on his forehead. I kept wondering if this might have dropped into our food. Patting his brow before reaching the table might have been a good idea.

The food was delicious, nice selection on the menu but the ambiance would keep me from entertaining friends or clients. I think with minimal cosmetic updates to the dining area would greatly improve the dining experience

Service was extremely pleasant; however, it was slow…understandable as just about every restaurant in the country is understaffed these days. We ate brunch, and it was lovely.

If I could eat just this food every night I would be in heaven. First of all Nick was great! He told us a lot about the restaurant this being our first visit. We had the Pork Belly Appetizer and the steak, burger, and Mac & cheese for our meals. Truly the best meal we have had in Charlotte by far!!

We overall rated this experience 5 stars. Unfortunately, my steak and my husband’s salmon were both a little overcooked but the rest of the experience made up for it. The flavor profiles in the main dishes were spot on and the service was excellent. The dessert was also super. We sat outside at a sidewalk table and enjoyed the wafting live jazz music from down the street and liveliness of the city around us. I’m going to assume the chef had an off night with the temperatures of the proteins because everything else was great.

The Asbury is a great place to have a nice Charlotte brunch. My boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary and this was the perfect spot! Delicious food & very friendly staff. The sticky biscuits and mimosas were my highlight!

During a Saturday brunch with family we found the food selection varied and creative and the service excellent. The dining room itself was non-descript and in need of updating.both from the standpoint of furnishings and lighting.

I requested a bottle of champagne to be at the table when my husband and I arrived. I called and the man confirmed it. There was no bottle. Also, the menu is very different from shown on here, so we decided not to dine in.

I was led by reviews to believe the Asbury was a fairly upscale place, and dressed accordingly. Imagine my surprise when the other patrons in the restaurant were one group of women who were dressed for the beach and another group who honestly looked like they were ladies of the evening. No tablecloths even for dinner, nothing to blunt the considerable noise, and a dinner check that totaled around $140, with tip but without wine. The food was good but not outstanding, so I consider it a poor value and certainly an unpleasant experience.

This restaurant was strange. It took a while to even be greeted since there was no one at the host's stand. Once we sat down, it took even longer to even be able to order or get a glass of water. The food itself was average. I had a warm kale salad with salmon and my boyfriend had the chicken sandwich. It got even weirder when we realized that every other table near us had a different menu than ours. They had a brunch menu while we only had a lunch one. I would have also liked to have had a choice between the two since it was still brunch time.

*note we did come on memorial day, but they weren't even busy
