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... read 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.

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.
