We were in town for a customer visit and had heard many good things about THC, but, this was either an off night or the signs of a place that is riding the wave of good word of mouth.
I am hoping it was just an off night....first thing to recommend is that when ALL guests can see the food waiting in the warmer pick it up in a timely manner!!! My husband's food sat and sat and sat until all dishes were place for our table. If you are that off, then discard and remake the earlier dish to be in time with others.
Secondly, if glasses of tea/water are empty, please refill. These are SIMPLE things to make guests feel welcome and honored to be spending money at your establishment.
The food was good, I will write to that, but, after sitting and watching each dish appear on warmer line on very slowly after the next...then finally appear at your table...is not an appealing way to get me back.
Again, hoping that this was just an off night, and, that service will be better next time, should we attempt a 2nd visit.

My husband and I ate at Tupelo Honey for the first time 2 weeks ago. It was a weekend morning and they were busy so we had to wait for a table. We were ushered to the back of the restaurant where there was a sitting area with complimentary coffee. Very nice! Brunch was delicious! I had an appetizer which was too big to finish. It was several slices of fried green tomatoes on top of a bed of the best cheese grits I've ever had. The dish was topped with chiffonaded fresh basil and came with a garnish of pickled okra. I also ordered the biscuits (wow!) and their homemade apple butter. The biscuits came with a tasty raspberry jam as well. My husband had a mug of homemade tomato soup that was creamy and delicious. The coffee was excellent too. Highly recommended.

We were in Asheville on a vacation but a friend who used to live there highly recommended this place. I see why. The food was so good. It was one of the best meals I had in awhile. I guess you can call this restaurant ""Southern with a twist."" I had shrimp in grits but it was pretty spicy. The prices are decent. The only thing is the wait. We went on a Wednesday before 6:00 and we had to sit at the counter. But it was neat being able to watch them prepare the food. I recommend this place but arrive very early if you want to avoid the wait.

I've eaten breakfast/brunch here many many times and have always had a great experience. The large sweet potato pancake topped with flavored butter and toasted pecans is absolutely delicious - it's perfect in texture, moist, and sooo good. Especialy with a side of their thick cut bacon. Eggs Betty - poached eggs with hollandaise and ham on their biscuit is very rich but really good. The pimento cheese dip is a tangy, classic southern appetizer. The breakfast potatoes are crispy on the outside, perfectly cooked, but always in need of a little salt. Their biscuits are moist on the inside with a little crunch on the outside. The service is friendly and pretty good. Unless you come 15 minutes before opening on the weekend, be prepared to wait - However, they are kind enough with an indoor waiting area in the back with newspapers and i think, coffee.

We went around 7 on a Saturday night. They have a quaint seating area in the back, and they offer drinks during the wait time. We were seated after an hour; it was worth the wait. My Italian food aficianado husband had the Penne Bolognese w/sausage, soy sausage, and free range chicken--it ranked with the best he's ever had. I had the grilled salmon with mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus (I found the fish to be a bit dry, but it was a solid, tasty meal nonetheless).
The desserts were incredible--the banana pudding was set in a pie crust and topped with whip creme. It had flavor and soul, yet it was light in feel--very good! Brownie Sundae was topped with a huge hunk of ice creme, drizzled in chocolate sauce and Tupelo Honey. Usually something like that is too rich for me, but this one was not overly saucy and sweet.
The service was very good. They apologized for our long wait and brought extra bread for our trouble. The host comes to the back seating area to cross check those who are on the list with those who are actually present. The food came out quickly after we ordered, and they made sure everything was okay once the food was received at least twice. Excellent experience.

Hidden amidst the beautiful art deco architecture that has remained in the 'American renaissance' town of Asheville,NC since the turn of the last century, Tupelo Honey's tasty menu, weekly music, and large selection of import and micro draft beers draw a hip crowd to enjoy the sounds and the scenery any night of the week.
