We have experienced this restaurant in the past 2 years but were very surprised to see such a decline in service and food quality. Family of five expecting excellent service and much better food quality. First, What in the world is Chef Brian thinking with biscuits covered with black pepper. What happened to the wonderful biscuit recipe in your cookbook... More

The restaurant does not take reservations but does let you call ahead to be placed on the waiting list. We were meeting family from the area and they called ahead so our wait was not as long as it could have been. We sat outside to take advantage of the cooler weather that evening and the lovely décor. We also... More

I live close by this place & love to come here. Food is good & they have healthy selections. It does get busy at lunch time so if you are in a hurry I would not come here then. Unfortunately, the last time I was there with a friend the waitress we had seemed to be at every table, but... More

What a fantastic restaurant! While we didn't get the most commonly ordered dishes according to our server (note: we got the Sheer Bliss Burger and Southern Fried Chicken Saltimbocca), everything was delicious and reasonably priced. The place also has a lovely atmosphere - the architecture and decorations make you feel right at home - and they are also very family... More

A group of 10 ladies had lunch there Friday. From the minute we walked in the door until we left it was great. The wait staff were friendly and very patient. The food was GOOOOOD! I had the Veggie melt and it was so tasty. What a great combination for an open face sandwich. Some of the ladies were surprised... More

Wife and I met a couple of friends for conversation and dinner last evening and everything was very good. The hostess and server were both VERY pleasant and nice. The food was served in a timely manner and at the right temperature. We never felt pressured or rushed to leave even though we did spend some time just visiting. Prices... More

I like both Tupelo Honeys, but it is a nice to have this alternative to not be in the thick of downtown, and it opens later in the day and therefore doesn't have that rush of a line. Their menu is great, and the quality of food great. Over time their signature biscuits have gotten significantly smaller...boo.

On our recent trip to the Asheville area, my husband and I ate at Tupulo Honey Cafe South twice. The decor is great -- think front porch -- and the wait staff was excellent. We both loved the Appalachian egg rolls (pulled pork), and the complementary biscuits with blueberry preserves. I thought the "Shoo Grill Cheese Have Mercy" was yummy,... More

We went to Tupelo Honey Café on the south side of Asheville after a recommendation from our waiter at another restaurant in Asheville. I had the chicken piccata with jumbo shrimp....WOW!!! Delish!! Highly recommend this place!

While visiting Asheville, we wanted to try TH. It was lunchtime and not very crowded. The hostess was seating us at a table, and we asked for a booth, as there were several empty. She acted irritated, but sat us in a booth. We waited about 15 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Once the waiter showed up, he said he... More
