After being told that we had to do this restaurant we tried but we could find parking to be able to dine here. The closest parking required you download an app to pay for parking. I ain’t got time for that. If I had it...More

Great restaurant. We have one in Raleigh. Food was great. Server a little pushy but attended to us well. Nice atmosphere.

I've eaten at the Tupelo Honey in Greenville, SC and Charlotte, NC so I knew what to expect and they delivered. The food was on par with the others that I've been to. Everything is always fresh. Their food is the closest thing I've found...More

They had a different kind of menu assortment. It wasn't bad, it was just not what I was expecting. People who aren't afraid to try new things should eat here. It just wasn't my cup of tea.

Had dinner here while in Ashville for a couple of days. Glad we decided to try it. Busy night but only had to wait a few minutes. They do take reservations but by the time we decided to go it was too late for reservation....More

Southern cooking at its down-home best. Grilled cheese/pulled pork sandwich was amazing, complemented by Tupelo Honey ale. Never disappoints. Wish we’d had room for dessert— next time!

Will be back! Little rolls were delicious Downtown is so much fun to wander and to find this local jewel was a special treat. All was good except the gumbo. I don't think the chef is from Louisiana. In fact I would bet on it,...More

I'm not sure but I wasn't all that satisfied with this place I think there are better restaurants in the area, I'd check with some of the locals while you are there in the area.

As an Asheville resident, my biggest complaint is there is no place at all to dress up. not the theater, restaurants, even church. Still some of us do because of habit or we like to. I would encourage everyone to wear a... More

Our Southern dishes and libations are served with a creative twist and a smile, and we serve our guests nothing that we wouldn't want on our own supper table. When we play with our food (and we think it's okay), the result is scrumptious. We're rooted in the Mountain South, and our menu is inspired by time-honored traditions: pickling and frying, canning and preserving, and utilizing seasonal produce and ingredients to prepare delicious, scratch-made creations.
