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.

Enjoyed our brunch. Will come back again. Our sever was a little inexperienced . Brought the check without asking if we would like anything else. No offer of dessert, drink etc. It was fine because we were finished, but she did not know that!

Asbury is a great brunch spot. The coffee is really good. The biscuits and sticky buns are amazing. Everyone enjoyed the chicken and waffles. Not a large dining area so the service was excellent

We went for brunch after Easter mass. The dining room was well lit and quiet. The menu is farm to plate, so the offerings depend on the local supply of foods. I had a Krenz burger and my daughter had the farm breakfast. The burger was tasty. The patty was thin and the bun overwhelmed it. The fresh eggs made the breakfast very tasty. Overall, a pleasant, relaxing brunch

The Asbury was a great find in our visit to Charlotte. The food was excellent. Star of the show was the fisherman’s stew. Light and delicious broth and perfectly prepared fish. Desert was also amazing. We shared bread pudding and homemade buttermilk and sugar ice cream .

Some items on the menu were a little pedestrian (beets with goat cheese, asparagus with hollandaise). However, the crispy pork cheeks in carrot + ginger bisque entree was inspired! Our server, however, could not have been less attentive. Service was so bad that I can't recommend it.

We came here for brunch before a 1:30 show at the Belk Theater. Our table wasn't ready when we got there so we had to wait about 10 minutes, but the staff was very attentive to the fact that we had a show to make it to and the hostess even informed our server so our server knew before she even came to greet us. We both had mimosas - mine with cranberry juice and my Mom's with grapefruit juice. They were delicious. For the entree I had the Southern Benedict with biscuits, country ham, poached eggs, and pimento cheese gravy. Oh my gosh it was heavenly!! I will come back just to have that gravy. Mom had the vegetable and egg entree with veggies, a poached egg and a light butter cream sauce. She said it was delicious but the description said it was also supposed to have potatoes and she doesn't think hers had any potatoes in it. The service was wonderful and we will definitely come back for the food! So glad we tried it for Sunday brunch!

Able to get in and out in time for a show is the real trick. Make reservations and tell them you are going to a show.

I usually find the food a real treat but on Friday March 16 I had the monk fish and it was not up to the typical standard I expect at the Asbury.
Not sure if it was March Madness fever but that would not be a recipe I suggest you repeat. I will try the Asbury again as I usually enjoy their food.

Absolutely incredible meal. Food was delicious, well thought out and highly executed. Flavors were unique and inspiring.

Wait staff was attentive and thorough. Cocktails were delicious. I would recommend the restaurant not just for a special occasion, but for anytime you want to go out. I often stop in and sit at the bar for a burger before an event downtown.

The food has never disappointed at the Asbury! The wine selection and pairings are also excellent. Chef Mike is always introducing new seasonal farm to fork opportunities, to include excellent fish options as well. My scallops were done to perfection and my husband's pork cheeks were lovely.

Great team effort. One of our very favorite restaurants!

Dinner w/ friends before concert @ Belk Theater..our first visit, and will NOT be our last! It checked all the boxes for us. Warm & cozy space, quiet enough to actually enjoy dinner chat. Outstanding attention to detail service (Justin, if I remember correctly) love that they offer smaller versions of the specials and entrees. Scallops were sweet & delicious, pork cheeks..yummy! Don’t miss MawMaws Biscuits! Well done Asbury, thanks for the excellent dining experience.

It's been far too long since we've been back to Asbury but it won't be as long before our next visit. We had a great experience overall. My warm kale salad with the trout was excellent. My friends enjoyed the swordfish and steamed cabbage roll. My husband tried the burger and liked it but didn't give it five stars. The fried oysters were a bit salty also which is why I rated the food 4 (4.5 if it were an option!). Perhaps a bit more dressing on the cauliflower would be appreciated too. Again, we'll be back though. Such a lovely setting and again, great service!

Stayed at the hotel that evening and dined at the Asbury prior to a show at Belk Theatre. Although the restaurant is small, the food and tastes were large! Tried several small plates with cocktails, the Mac and cheese and pork belly were delicious! Will definitely dine there again! Thanks for making a special occasion top notch!

We especially enjoyed the retro bar menu and will be back to try more. The bean appetizer was tasty although would have like a little more moisture. The fennel sale was lightly dressed, fresh and generous to share but we found few pieces of fennel. The sauage with rigatoni was perfection and the fruits di mare was fresh and sauce delicious. We share a delicious mocha carmel dessert.

So glad we finally made it for brunch!! The Asbury has been on our list for hot spots in Charlotte. My husband ordered the chicken & biscuits - best we've both ever had! I had chicken & waffles and the breading on the chicken was the best savory flavor with the sweet syrup! BYO Bloody Mary Bar and great morning cocktail choices!

Our waiter was in love with himself. The restaurant had only one other (although large) table going that evening, but even so the waiter disappeared for long periods. The food was very appealing and flavorful, although the risotto was not warm when it arrived.

It's too bad. It's a good location, small enough to feel right for good conversation and the menu and food is great (if brought out promptly). But everyone in my party noticed the poor service.

We had difficulty with the menu because there were so many wonderful things to offer. We shared the biscuits with bacon jam, the deviled eggs and a warm kale salad, all delicious. The server gave excellent suggestions and stellar friendly service. Pork Cheeks and Scallops were dreamy. I am a convert and will definitely return for a repeat performance.
