Excellent food ( try the Pimento Cheese appetizer)...OMG. The food was great, the server gave us tons of information about the history and we loved the food. Do go in and enjoy. We were very glad we had lunch here.

This was really good food, especially when you consider the location. Let me explain that. This restaurant is inside the Biltmore Estate,actually in the old stables. Ordinarily when you are "captive" for food, the establishment will do whatever and many times you get whatever. This is not the case here. Great atmosphere. Wonderful and attentive wait staff. And really good... More

My wife and I visited The Biltmore Mansion today. After a 1-hour horseback ride and a 2-hour tour of the house we chose to eat a late lunch at the Stable Cafe right there at the mansion. Our dinners were very good, the kale and quinoa salad topped with rotisserie chicken and the Stable Sampler of BBQ, rotisserie chicken and... More

My husband and I ate here while visiting the Biltmore. We share the sampler platter for two. It included BBQ ribs, BBQ pulled pork, and 1/2 of a roasted chicken. The sided that were included were collard greens, pimento cheese grits, and coleslaw. The food was amazing and the service was great. I would certainly recommend it!

A group to which I belong had an event partly at the Biltmore Estate over Memorial Day weekend (not speaking for the group, just myself) and in connection with that event we had a dinner upstairs at the Stable Cafe before a private twilight tour of the House (informative but abbreviated and visiting only about a third of the house...

We ordered the BBQ sampler for two - more than enough food for the two of us. We took home the leftovers.

We have snacked here before but we came for lunch this time. We enjoy good pimento cheese and ordered the appetizer. Before we finished our chicken arrived. We ordered the half portion to share, more than enough for two when you have an appetizer. The chicken fell off the bone, the seasoning reminded me of German broasted chicken. The mashed... More

I have been to Biltmore previously and this is my absolute favorite place to eat. This time I had a glass of Sangria that was delicious. Loved all the fruit I got in mine. I had the sausage, cheese and pickle tray with crackers. Awesome. Our waiter was attentive. We did not lack for a thing. When we go again... More

Have eaten there 3 times and has always been delicious. I have had the baked chicken dinner twice and the meat falls off the bone. Also, it is very unique eating in a building that was once horse stables over a hundred years ago.
