Menu

We Have Proudly Served Fresh, Made-From-Scratch and "Forever Free" Food for Over 20 Years. We started as a scratch-made, farm to table restaurant in Asheville, NC in 2000 because we believed food should be good for our guests and for the planet. Today, forever free means the majority of our proteins were raised without antibiotics or hormones. We thoughtfully source ingredients like sustainably-farmed fish, wild-caught shrimp and regionally-sourced wheat and corn from century-old family mills

Entree’s were served less than five minutes after we got our hors d’oeuvre so we were rushing through the appetizer while the entrees sat getting cold. House “specialty”, honey dusted chicken was essentially fried, then re-heated to a tough consistency. Partner’s dish was equally disappointing. Bar servers were attentive but not a place we would visit again.

The fluffy biscuits, which came with delicious whipped butter and scrumptious blueberry jam, were so good we decided to order another round for breakfast in the morning. We also got the fried pickles which came with a zesty rach dip. Yum! The corn poblano pepper chowder was yummy. Our salads were good but paled in comparison to everything else we got. The dessert duo of banana pudding and pecan pie still has me drooling. We also got some delicious mocktails - lavender lemonade and turmeric ginger tonic. They were fantastic. Our service was remarkable + we will definitely be back to try their brunch.

We were walking by one morning and thought the place looked cool so we decided to stop in for a bite. We were greeted by a rude Gen Z hostess who looked at our infant and toddler as if they had 6 heads and pretty much told us to shove off we are booked. So we looked up Tupelo and saw they were highly rated so we decided, let’s go back despite the hostess so we made a reservation. We wish we hadn’t. The biscuit appetizer was the best part of our meal. My wife got the meatloaf with Mac and cheese. It didn’t look like pictures we’ve seen. There was minimal to no sauce on the meatloaf. The max and cheese side was not great. Was dry and had hard overcooked cheese. I got the original dusted honey fried chicken, with Mac and cheese and Brussel sprouts. The seasoning in the chicken was good, and the dark meat pieces were tasty. The breast however was bone dry and I couldn’t choke down more than two bites. I felt similarly about Mac and cheese. Brussel sprouts were solid. Overall would not go back.

It was flavorless and dry. Not one of our items (mac & cheese, collards, fried green tomatoes, crispy Brussel sprouts, chicken) are worth returning for. The waffle and cocktails might be the exceptions.

This restaurant came up as highly rated and it did not disappoint! We loved everything! Fried Green Tomatoes app, spicy Cauliflower app & Meatloaf Patty Melt. All wonderful and the bloody Mary’s were on point! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

Large tasty biscuits served with cold butter that was hard to spread and lots of blueberry jam. Ordered chicken and waffles…disappointing as the chicken was dark meat (no indication on the menu)which I dislike. Three waffles had that cold butter that was hard to spread. Large portions of food. Not overly impressed.

We had the fried chicken on the bone, one dark meat, one white meat with green beans. Dessert was a small banana pudding and a pecan pie. The two of us sat a long table ourselves- seating for 8 - which i suppose was for physical distancing. The service was outstanding.

I had chicken and waffles and my chicken was way overdone . I like this place and want it to be better but last two dinners were just ok. Pick it back up people

We were seated very promptly. The restaurant was booked all day for reservations, which made me a little nervous about it being overbooked. But, I was pleasantly surprised, they had not over booked. Our server was absolutely fantastic! Our drinks came out timely, and they were wonderful! I highly recommend the Blueberry Lavender Mimosa, it was lovely! We received our food quickly and everything was great! I highly recommend Tupelo Honey!
