Maybe eating lunch in old horse stalls seems odd, but it fit the surroundings. We had a late lunch before our Biltmore House tour. The Stable Café is a very convenient location for touring the gardens and house. The staff was friendly and the service was good. The menu reflects the influence of the Western North Carolina area and there... More

Dined at Stable Cafe after touring Candlelight Christmas at Biltmore. It was a 3 course menu. Dinner price ranges from $36-$49 depending on entree. It was a bit expensive but did not disappoint- We had Camembert frisée salad, butternut goat cheese ravioli, and honey walnut cake. Dinner was served and cooked to perfection! Atmosphere was beautiful with all the Holiday... More

The dinner was around 35 each for 3 courses. We had the salad and soup. Small but tasty portions. The goat cheese ravioli was plentiful and delicious, but the salmon was way too salty. They have 3 or 4 other meat choices for meateaters. For dessert we had the chocolate tart and walnut cake, both delicious. Coffee was good and... More

Although the menu was somewhat limited in selection, there is more than likely something for everyone. My particular meal was delicious and was served hot and did not have too long of a wait, despite the large number of patrons.

We had lunch at the Stable Café, adjacent to the house, after finishing our self-guided tour. We were seated immediately, as it was shortly after 11:00 on a weekday, but every table was full by the time we left. We had the Carolina Barbecue. I had the plate and my husband had the sandwich. My husband said he would've ordered... More

I ate here for lunch and it was amazing. The server was very helpful with suggestions. Even though they were very busy, our food came fairly quickly. The best ribs on our trip were from this restaurant, I will be back.

We ate lunch at the Stable when we were visiting the Biltmore Mansion. I had barbeque and my husband had the chile. We both thought our meals were great. The staff is very good at getting you in and out with the crowds, without making you feel rushed.
