Tupelo Honey - Downtown Asheville
Wow! Highly recommend. We visited on March 16th and our server Michael was great. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and extremely personable. Everyone was accommodating and excited to help is celebrate our honeymoon! The steak and fried chicken tasted amazing!!
Our waitress was awesome. Very busy despite Corvid-19. Food was excellent and my parents enjoyed the experience!
Incredible - our server Darrell was beyond excellent!!
We came to Tupelo for a bachelorette celebration. The service from Darrel was beyond fantastic! There are special southern touches, including biscuits before our meals arrived. We will be definitely be back!
Great food and fast service! I recommend the avocado eggs betty!
Superb food as always. With that said, I miss the ambience of the original restaurant’s decor vs. the updated look it now sports.
For the price, everything was very okay. There's better restaurants in the area.
Food was underwhelming. The signature Fried Chicken appeared to have been prepared earlier in the evening and kept warm. Green bean side lacked any flavor and the biscuits had a similar feel as the fried chicken, not freshly prepared.
The only problem was the bread of the sandwich was a bit burnt, but overall taste was good. And the shrimp and grits was great!
The food & waitress were wonderful! We had 3 fried chicken dinners & 1 trout in our party. We all agreed the food was great! We really liked our waitress. Thank you!
We were all very impressed with the aesthetics, wait staff friendliness, and food quality/taste. The chicken salad, grilled cheese, and chicken/avocado sandwich were all delicious! And I’m still thinking about the tasty biscuits, honey and blue berry preserves. Yum! We will definitely be back!
Was very very good food, the place is a little small inside but it’s worth it
Wonderful meals and extremely welcoming and accommodating service!! I ordered the fried chicken with mac n cheese and they let me adjust my order to include the sweet potato pancakes for a neat take on "chicken and waffles". It was DELICIOUS!! It was a little chilly in the restaurant but other than that, it was a great night out.
LOVE THIS PLACE. Seriously. The food is truly exceptional.. the staff is always friendly and the prices are great. Dear Tupelo Honey, you’ve got this figured out!! Keep it up!!
Food was very good. Great southern contemporary food. A little pricey I thought, especially for something like fried chicken, but ultimately very pleased.
Service at the bar while we waited for our table was great, bartender was friendly and responsive. Food was very good, our waiter was ok, not super helpful when it came to answering questions about a couple items on the menu. Decor and overall ambiance is meh, but again the food was why we went in the first place.
I ordered the shrimp and grits. When it finally got there, my food was cold and just really gross. The shrimp actually tasted like it had gone bad. My husband said he believed he had seen my plate taken to a few different tables before it was realized that it was actually for me. The waiter did take it off our bill, but honestly, the experience was so bad that we won't be back.
We were seated within 5 feet of the front door and hostess stand and we asked for another table. We were told the other tables were for people with reservations (they were just ordinary tables, further away from the door).
Food all over the floor under the table.
Great food and service
Food was excellent! Service was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
My first time back in about 10 years and it was even better than I remembered.
The crunchy brussels are delicious!
Best experience at Tupelo Honey by far. Delicious food!!
Excellent service. Friendly and attentive service. Food was delicious!
Fantastic food! This is a place to eat delicious food. Seating is tight, but you will not notice once you put your dinner in your mouth.
food was mediocre and place noisy and cold. Meatloaf had a nasty glaze on it that was too salty. Cast iron pork was tasteless. $9.00 wine pour was about 4oz. Second glass a little more generous.
Best fried chicken and grits ever. Mac and Cheese was dry not creamy But waiter brought me grits that were excellent. Highly recommend this cafe.
As not big meat eaters, we found the menu rather limited. We also found it hard to find healthy options. We asked for fruit as a side and they didn't have that.
For starters, we were right across from a serving station.. some staff member knocked a sleeve of plastic glasses over onto the tile floor. About half of the sleeve fell out onto the dirty floor. Another staff member helped pick them up- Stuffed the glasses that fell on the floor back into the sleeve and put it back with the other sleeves for future use.
Second...My wife ordered the fried chicken, supposed to be a specialty of the chain- it came dry and over cooked. I had a burger, was supposed to be cooked “light pink center” came well done. We didn’t send the meals back but we made a note/-no more Asheville Tupelo Honey....certainly not the service, food quality, ambiance, etc of other restaurants in the chain.
Third...I overheard a member of the wait staff say this was a training branch for the restaurant chain. Hard to believe, but she was the most “normal looking”person waiting tables.
Asheville is supposed to be an “artsy” town, and this restaurant exemplifies this trait.
Everything was just excellent! Had we stayed longer, we would have gone again.
We are on vacation and really enjoyed the meal
Our dinners were excellent, enhanced further by our server, Owen’s, knowledge and hugely positive and friendly energy.
We love this place! Every time me and my boyfriend are in Asheville, we try to eat here. I loveee the Charleston chicken and he loves the fried chicken. However, everything is excellent!
It was great like it always is. I get the Meatloaf and wife gets the Shrimp and Grits.
Great food and great service. First time trying Tupelo, but will definitely be going back.
Much better places to go for brunch around Asheville
Most amazing food ever! Would highly recommend having a meal here!
The food and service were great.
