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.

The food is adequate. Basic, sub par. Not worth the trip. Every time the door opens it’s freezing. It opens right into the small space. Service was very good.

Gustavo the bartender was great and he made a wonderful Rye Manhattan. Super nice guy and loved the bar

Our server(unfortunately I can’t remember her name) was also very nice and accommodating.

The food was SOOOOOO good.my wife loved the grilled Kale Salad in particular and the very. Ready mashed potatoes.

I’m sure the ambience is much better when the sanity can run as a restaurant with no restrictions. I am happy they are finding a way to survive.

The pace of the dinner was just what we were looking for. The food was well prepared, good flavor, came to the table in a timely manner, and was hot. Very attentive service, especially by Jenni. Looking forward to our next meal at The Ashury.

Had New Year's Eve dinner with my wife and the meal was delicious--crab soup for appetizers, mussels in curry sauce for dinner, and wonderful desserts from their amazing pastry chef. We highly recommend The Asbury!

Food and service was good. The ambiance was a bit off. I think they needed to dim the lights or something.

My food was amazing. Just wish burgers would come with fries as it does most restaurants. The server took forever to bring our checks and return our cards. Overall, good experience for me.

Went for brunch. We loved the asbury the first time we visited. This past time wasn’t the same. Our food was okay but not as great at the first time. Drinks were okay. Maybe we had too many expectations from the first visit. We were slightly disappointed

Server was just ok, seemed unenthusiastic. The food was just okay, ordered the deviled eggs, Mac and cheese and asbury brunch stack. all the food lacked seasoning, quite bland, no depth to the flavors.

Traveling from nyc came here for brunch.. not sure if it was due to covid place was EMPTY not what
I expected. No music food was ok until half way through my sandwich was a thick black hair fried into the chicken and $13 for a small omelette with no sides. Not worth it

If you come for brunch -- definitely get the banana pudding pancakes and order the side of potato cake (with jalapeno -- not spicy -- and goat feta. I will most CERTAINLY come back!

Very small plates for pretty high prices. Service was mediocre. No complaints but certainly no compliments either. Food was good, not great, but good. Very average as a whole. We would’ve been much happier at the Melting Pot or a Longhorn for more food and less money. If you’re using this place for an expensive date night, choose better or go a somewhere more “normal” and save a buck. We frequently try new places for date night and for us this was a one stop shop.

At first I thought maybe it was closed because no one else was in the restaurant, but they were and we had our pick of seats. The service was quick and friendly, and the food was tasty and beautifully plated. I would definitely come again.

To be fair, it can’t truly provide a review because I ended up not eating here but I needed to provide scores to get to this point.
The menu and photos on this site and theirs are not up to date in the least. The menu reads inventive, seasonal, and contemporary southern but that is not what is happening right now, not at all. The menu has been rendered down to nothing like most hotel restaurants. The disparity between the actual restaurant and its internet “face” is so dramatic, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if I had gone into the bizarro-land Asbury rather than the one where I booked a reservation.

The food was good and service was okay. My coffee had an odd off note which I brought to the waitress's attention. I returned my still full cup which she took away and said nothing further about it. Im unsure is it was reported to the manager on duty but not one person addressed it with me. Aside from that issue, the remainder of the meal was enjoyable; although, that biscuit is enough for two.

The service was nice, out server was sweet but nothing special. It was our first time there so we didn’t know what to expect but upon entering we realized that it was attached to the hotel. It was completely empty which at first was really nice but as we begin to get further in the evening it was almost too quiet? The decor and seating were very outdated in our opinions and definitely scream “ Hotel restaurant“. Our food though fairly priced, wasn’t exciting and the deviled eggs were nothing like either of us expected so that was a little disappointing. I had the burger which wasn’t anything special and my partner had the pork which she thought was pretty tough. The wine that was recommended by our server was pretty good and again we didn’t receive poor service but overall it was not a very exciting dining experience.

Great dinner spot in Uptown attached to the Dunhill Hotel. The restaurant was very quiet and quaint. We got a couple glasses of wine (great pour) and the chicken sandwich and the brisket and egg sandwich with fries and mac and cheese. Both were excellent choices. We'll definitely be back again!

Went to the Asbury for brunch. Started with the sticky buns, they were really dry and we really didn’t enjoy them. Wouldn’t recommend. For entrees we ordered the chicken biscuit and Mac and cheese, which were overall ok. Nothing to rave about. We ordered mimosas and there were basically orange juice.
