Had a great meal with the team here. We have 14 of us and we called just before we arrived. They were able to seat us without an issue. The beer selection is good and served cold. The menu is purely good pub food. Nothing on the menu we tried disappointed us. I have to suggest the Chicken and... read more

I was on the hunt for some good fried chicken and had lost the trail of some potential eateries when I came across this place. The serving size was huge and the crispiness was great and not burnt. The added bonus was that it is served on top of a Belgium waffle with maple syrup and sweet butter and hot... More

I live locally and have eaten here several times. It's a real treat. They have items on the menu that please my kids (who sadly, have limited palates) but I'm not forced to eat chicken fingers. They have great food for grown-ups too! The servers have always been friendly and efficient. Love this place.

Nice after work place but wouldn't go our of my way for it. Very congested inside but if you can snag an outdoor table it's more enjoyable. Food was good but service pretty terrible. Make a reservation and ask for outdoor table.

Pleasant atmosphere, varied menu for a drinking establishment. Not noisy or crowded but pleasantly busy.

A+ to the manager of The Biltmore. We live locally and came by for a quick meal on a weekday night. The waiter was nice enough but not totally engaged in the process. Our meals arrived room temperature - a reuben, fries and flatbread. We wanted to eat and get going. But the waiter came by and asked how our... More

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
