Mayfel's was the surprise restaurant of our trip to Asheville. We strolled in for their brunch, and it was best decision we made the entire weekend. They have a great "Make Your Own Bloody Mary" Bar with all the fixings to make your favorite recipe. I highly suggest the Crab Burger and Collards for the side. One of the best... More

We had no trouble getting a table at 1 PM on a Friday, though were disappointed that the courtyard was not open. New Orleans specialties worth having. The lunch special of red snapper po boy was fresh and tasty, and the fried green tomatoes nicely gussied up with a remoulade and onion garnish. Good service. And a nice homemade cocktail... More

My husband and I had the fried chicken biscuit with sausage gravy. We also had a Bloody Mary that we got to fix ourselves. The waitress asked us what brand vodka we wanted and brought us our glass with it in it. Then we went to the sidebar where we could add the tomato juice (in varying degrees of heat),... More

After walking around downtown, I was tired and hungry. We stopped by to grab coffee and dinner. Our waitress offered me a French press and it was just what I needed! A good few cups to myself and such good coffee as well. We started out with a lobster Mac and cheese. Wow. What a great start. I had the... More

I cannot say enough about the food. Ambience is also fun. Had a large party and everything was great and tasty. Everyone loved their meal--from jambalaya, shrimp and grits, crab cakes to corn bread. The only downside was our waitress could be a bit curt at points but food came out correct as ordered and drinks stayed filled up. Other... More

Had an enjoyable dinner with my wife at Mayfels remembering our last trip to Nawlins. Spicier than I remember so be careful what you order. However don't miss the beignets. Highlight of the dinner.

First time visitor that happened upon this place while looking for a place to get dinner. Atmosphere was inviting & exciting. Our party had the trout dip appetizer, shrimp & grits and the Chicken creole pasta. All excellent! But the carrot cake was to die for 😃If you can't eat dessert there, take it with you!!

It was late afternoon, it was raining, and we were hungry after skipping lunch. What to do? Ahh, pop into Mayfel's, a New Orleans styled restaurant for some very tasty cocktails and a few nibbles. Fried Green Tomatoes and a Pork Shoulder Sandwich. The sandwich puzzled us at first, not very much sauce, but the flavorful pork did not need... More

Very nice restaurant, with a New Orleans style. Beignets are to die for. In the middle of down town. Food was pretty good, the prices are a little high.
