Always yummy

My husband and I are annual pass holders and love stopping at the Stable Cafe. The menu is full of comfort foods as well as some lighter options. They are usually busy but it seems like we never have to wait at all or very long for a table. We have always had great service and the servers are... read more

Ate here while visiting Biltmore. Food was very good. We came at lunch time and it was completely packed so we left and wondered around a bit and came back after the lunch rush was almost over. Glad we came back because the food was very good. During lunch rush the noise of everyone talking inside was almost overwhelming but... More

A little close quarters, but the ambiance is fantastic. Food was worth the wait. Wait staff are good as well. Will return many more times:)

The Stable Restaurant has a wonderful farm fresh taste. I figured out quickly that having the right seating was crucial. The actual stable table that is secluded from other tables is prime. Good luck.

We enjoyed the Christmas buffet at the Stable Cafe before our entrance to the Biltmore Estate. The three-course meal was amazingly good, and the service was exceptional. Highly recommended!

Yet another perfect experience!! Each time we visit Biltmore we always enjoy lunch here. The Pimento Cheese appetizer is the perfect choice to start out your meal. This time I had the sampler that includes, ribs, pulled pork and the chicken. It was delicious!! While visiting Biltmore make sure you enjoy a meal here.

The Stable Cafe is located in the converted stables on the Biltmore Estates property. The decor gives you a sense of when it was part of the stables. Their menu selections made it difficult to choose, but everything we tried as delicious and substantial. Make sure to try the homemade pickles. Our server was friendly and interested in if we'd...

I went there in December and had their special Candlelight meal which is salad, entree and desert. I did not know that when I went. It was ok but over priced. The reason it was over priced was that it is part of the Biltmore Estates restaurants. What made me go is that this place use to be the horse... More

We ate here during our trip to Biltmore. Around 11:45 our wait was about 25 minutes so that wasn't bad given the large crowd of people at that time. It was a bit cold outside or else we would have considered the light fare options outside. The food was very good and reasonably priced for being at an attraction. Service... More
