This is one of those place we can all go to. Whether I am with my family or a friend night out, the food and bar menu has something to make us all happy. Nice atmosphere though it is busy and gets noisy especially near the bar. Good choices: pub fries, kale salad, tuna tartare sandwich (my fav), fried chicken... More

Great fried chicken and waffles. I always want to order something lighter but can never pass this up when I am at the Biltmore. Really good fish and chips too. We have been to the Biltmore many times, and never had a bad meal. Good beer selection as well, more than the typical craft beer selection. The bar area can... More

Nothing spectacular here. Pretty average atmosphere, pretty average drinks, pretty average food, pretty average prices. The service is the one thing I'll give an above average rating to. They're extremely nice and approach the table immediately after sitting down.

The Biltmore is always a great experience. Anytime we want a nice dinner out, The Biltmore does not disappoint. The menu is very good, the ambience is friendly and relaxed, and the beer selection is solid. This is solid food and a nice evening, without a lot of hassle. If you are interested in an active bar scene, they have... More

.... it was delicious especially with a couple good pale ales. Got the roast beef hash with kale, home fries and a fried egg. Super tasty. My sister got the kale salad in a bacon vinaigrette. It was very tasty but you must really like smoked flavors to truly enjoy it. Bro-in-law hated his meatball sub. It was lacking sauce.... More

We eat at the Biltmore at least monthly, and it's perhaps our favorite pub (in part since it's the closest watering hole from dry Wellesley). They have a huge selection of beers on tap, ranging from PBR to Duvel, plus other standout Belgian / European and American brews. The menu has been 'downsized' a bit over the past few years,... More

The food here has had its ups and downs-- I actually think it's pretty decent these days. What makes it a 4 bubble review is the beer menu-- great selection that rotates pretty frequently. Not bad for the burbs.

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving we grandparents took Newton dwelling son, spouse and 2 grandchildren (4 &7) here for brunch. There was a wide selection of menu items and also a children’s brunch menu. We were all very happy with our food, and the service was quite good. It did seem like it took a long time to get served...

We had a great office party at the Biltmore last Friday for 50 or so super hard working behaviorists. The food was wonderful: gourmet pub, I would say. Special but not too exotic. The service was excellent. Hoping that it will become an holiday tradition!
