The food was amazing. Great, friendly and very attentive wait staff. Loved the atmosphere. Plenty of seating. Have to park on the street, but that was not a big deal.

This visit was with friends and just for coffee and a snack ...I ordered the fried green tomatoes and what a disappointment! They were very thick which would have been fine but they were hard and cold...Not my best visit by far.

Tupelo Honey had an appealing brunch menu. The biscuits were great! I got the Fried Chicken BLT it was okay, but I wouldn't order it again. My son got macaroni and cheese which was unique and tasty! Our waiter was great as well as the helpful hostess. Overall, it was a good experience.

There is SO MUCH FOOD! It's crazy. I ate my fill and still had enough food for two more meals! The Staff professional but fun. The tables are pretty close together, but otherwise the night was perfect. Go to try the food- you'll love it!

We tried Tupelo Honey because it was within easy walking distance of our hotel, and it was recommended by friends. Having had some good meals and some awful meals in No.Carolina, we had high expectations since this would be our last dinner before returning home. It was not fancy, but definitely enjoyable with a friendly and efficient waiter and delicious... More

What a great little restaurant in nestled in the heart of downtown Asheville. The cocktail that I began my day with was exquisite and perfectly crafted. The wicked chicken was wicked perfect indeed! The bar setup was a little cramped but accessible and never impeded upon my ability to enjoy the atmosphere and food! They've definitely earned some repeat customers!

Based on all the rave reviews we went to Tupelo Honey for breakfast. We found the menu not at all to our liking. For us, it's "over-engineered" and filled with choices that are just plain unhealthy.

Ok, this was the 3rd time I have eaten here over a few years. First 2 times I was somewhat disappointed in the actual food. It just wasn't up to what I had been told, but we all have different tastes. This last time and I do mean last time ever...the service was beyond horrible. I went with a safe... More

I hate to give this place such a good review but I must be honest! I have anything I did not LOVE at Tupelo Honey restaurant! Of course my very favorite is the sweet potato pancakes. They are to die for. And they're thick-sliced bacon cook to your specifications is just as good and goes so great together. Their lunch... 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.
