Not worth it

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... read more

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

I have eaten in The Biltmore many times- always for lunch or brunch. Their brunch menu was a favorite of ours and it is still good, despite the reduced menu. The food is very fresh and the Bloody Mary's are excellent. A few favorites were removed from the menu, but there were still enough options to make everyone happy. Their... More

I've personally never had a bad meal here or service. They have a great selection of salads. My favorite feature beside the menu is the outside patio. There is nothing better than eating outside on a closed in patio enjoying the good weather and food. It's big enough where I don't feel like I'm hearing everyone else's conversation. I highly...

Based on recommendation of local friends we made reservations for dinner at The Biltmore on a Saturday night. Parking lot layout was unusual but we found a spot easily. We were quickly greeted and given a very comfortable booth for 4.Our waitress was friendly and prompt with the drink and appetizer order delivery. Highly recommend the deep fried mac and... More

This is simple, straight-forward pub food of mostly salads and sandwiches. The service was attentive and easy-going. My salad was chock full of tasty vegetables with a delicious green dressing. I also recommend the sweet potato fries. Prices were reasonable. The chairs are of the hard wooden variety, so if you're planning on a longish meal, bring your own pillow.

I visited here with my brother and had a few beers and was really good. A few days later we returned together with my wife and had lunch. The food was OK the water service average and the music to heavy rock and loud I had a great burger but my wife's food was overcooked As I said in the... More

Lunch was attractively presented, and food was tasty. But for me, the ambiance, which I'm sure some would find rustically charming, was off-putting. Shabby wood tables with nicks, scratches, and peeling finish, uncomfortable chairs, all crowded together in a cramped space with dim lighting make it unlikely I'll want to return, It seems to be popular with the bar crowd...

Food is high quality, way beyond what you would expect from what appears to be a bar at first. But in the back where the restaurant is some really great food is served. Brunch on Sunday is also delicious stuffed french toast, yum.

Had this recommend to me by a friend. A little apprehensive as it was not in a busy part of town. That all evaporated when I got inside. A great neighborhood feel was instantaneous. I sat at the bar as their beer menu was highly recommended. Their drink menu looked great, but I was focused on beer. They had an... More
