Description: With its warm service and artistic food presentation, The Asbury puts a sophisticated spin on the local food movement and traditional Southern dishes. Led by rising-star Executive Chef Chris Coleman, 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 Charlotte's cultural district, it's only fitting that the restaurant features local art curated in collaboration with McColl Center for Art + Innovation. Open seven days a week and serving the longest weekend brunch in Charlotte. Complimentary two-hour parking available in the Fifth Third parking garage accessible from 6th and Church Streets.

“Very ordinary.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014 NEW

We stayed at the Dunhill Hotel adjoined to this restaurant and because their breakfasts were very inadequate we decided to treat ourselves to breakfast in The Astbury. That was also a mistake as my order sounded delicious - 'Stack o' pancakes with whipped ricotta, seasonal fruit, and maple syrup'. The two large pancakes were very dry and the whipped ricotta cheese was a very small drizzle on top and between the pancakes. The seasonal fruit was cold semi -cooked apple. The price? $12. We didn't return.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2014

This is an amazing farm-to-table restaurant with a changing seasonal menu. The food is so creative and so delicious. I recommend ordering and sharing several of the small plates so you can taste as much of the menu as possible. The cheese plate was fabulous, the smoked oysters were delicious, and I cannot say enough about the duck confit... The staff was friendly and helpful, and the price is very reasonable for the exceptional quality of the food. It was truly a wonderful dining experience.

“New Southern cuisine....delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2014

A way out of the box culinary destination where old Southern recipes meets modern preparation.

One appetiser, Maw Maws Cast Iron Biscuits, consisted of 4 hand made biscuits reminiscent of grandmas's house, served table side in a cast iron skillet with a bacon jam that begs for more. The Cast Iron Scallops and Pork Belly is so decadent that it must be experienced as words do not provide an adequate description. The Pan Roasted Duck Breast was also excellently prepared and delicious.

The Asbury is a rather nondescript dining room attached to the Dunhill hotel, however, the food and professional wait staff made our experience a great one.

“So glad we found this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

We were looking for a place to get some breakfast and we happened upon The Asbury. We were a little taken aback since it was attached to a hotel, but we are so glad we stayed! We had a delicious breakfast that was very reasonably priced. The staff could not have been nicer and our waitress even gave us coffee to-go since it was such a cold morning. The food was wonderful - locally sourced and very fresh. We truly enjoyed our meal and would definitely return.

“Breakfast at it's best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2014 via mobile

Our family visited Charlotte one weekend in October and one family member recommended this restaurant for breakfast. We were seated quickly with no wait time and the waitress was quick to bring us menu's and take our drink orders. We were glad to see they had many healthy options on the menu and also that the food was from their own farm. I ordered the eggs, bacon, and toast and it was delicious. Everyone else ordered something different and everyone loved their meal. I also thought the cost was reasonable at about $8-$10 a person. We will absolutely visit again next time we are in Charlotte.
