Wow! By dumb luck I found this place, what a neighborhood gem! I travel A LOT for work and wish I could find this same place in every city I go to. The staff is very knowledgeable about the beers on draft, liquors on the shelf, and the menu; they like their jobs. This place is a must stop anytime... More

The Biltmore is a regular place for friends/co-workers for lunch - and even better now that the weather is nice with their outdoor patio. Their food is great, most recently I tried their steak sandwich and it was delish, and I always get their waffle fries. The downside to The Biltmore, is this is not a place you can usually... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time tonight. We had stopped in one night when it was too crowded, thought it looked fun so had high hopes of a casual dinner and a good beer. first of all the noise level was outrageous. Couldn't hear my friend talking to me across the table. Then I ordered the special -... More

This is the kind of neighborhood spot with interesting but not trendy food, an excellent but not overwhelming craft beer list, interesting cocktails and friendly staff.

Very quaint local bar/pub/restaurant I found the menu to be small and a little limited however the quality of the food more than made up for it. Salmon with seaweed salad and an avacdo wip that scared me it was so good. Great beer wine and drink selections and rock n roll from the 50s to today played while I... More

I have been to The Biltmore a few times over the last year and I went in this past visit expecting the same average bar food that I have experienced before. What I got was ten times better than that. The half pressed chicken and mushroom, feta risotto was so good that it prompted me to ask the bartender (we... More

We called ahead with a reservation for 12 on a Saturday at 6pm. Understandably, that is a busy time and a restaurant like this will fill up quickly. That was the reason we made a reservation. Unfortunately, the table they provided was very cramped even with 5 children under 10 yrs old and the adults are skinny Asians. We compromised... More

Seems like they are trying to get a different crowd than the previous owners. The remodel looks great. Nice bar and atmosphere but prices are way too expensive for basically pub food. I ordered a burger with fries. Burger was just ok and fries came in a fancy basket. You are paying for presentation of the food instead of quality.... More

Friendly, local tavern, good food, more intersting menu than most Pubs. Off street parking is a real plus in this part of town.
