This is the coolest place to eat at when you visit the Biltmore! The stable is beautiful and sitting down to eat in one of the stalls is the coolest feeling. The staff is great and you can't beat the food. The coolest thing about the food is they keep with Biltmore family traditional food but they add the Western... More

We had a very late lunch or a very early dinner! The food was excellent and so was the service. With so many visitors to the Biltmore that day we were expecting a long wait but at 4pm they weren't crowded. I would highly recommend The Stable Cafe.

I had the Bison Burger and it was medium-well and very juicy. Maggie was our server and she was very informative about the menu. Food was served quick and hot. She also was ready to refill our drinks before they were empty. Thanks Maggie!

The Biltmore's Stable Café was a very nice dining experience. They cleverly transformed old stables into a restaurant with booths as well as tables. It was a unique establishment. The food was a bit pricey but excellent--creative and tasty combinations. Our waiter was extraordinary with his service and knowledge, about not only the menu but specific information regarding the Biltmore... More

We walked right in around 1215 on a Saturday with no wait. Husband got a smoked turkey sandwich, really really good. I had barbeque sandwhich, also tasty. One meal would have been enough for us to share, lots of food. Seeing the stable being used was pretty cool too. It was expensive for lunch, but worth it.

I really liked this restaurant. Went for lunch and the service was top notch. Food was very good and atmosphere was fantastic. I had the carrot soup which was very good but very gingery. It doesn't mention that there is any ginger in the soup in the description nor did our waitress mention it so if you are not a... More

When planning our visit to The Biltmore House, I had read about The Stable Cafe-one of several eating options on the Biltmore property. The idea of eating in a stall in the original stables piqued my interest. No reservations are accepted for small parties (not sure about larger parties), so when we arrived that day, we decided to eat first... More

We were seated in what is clearly one of the old (but stunning, the Vanderbilt horses lived very well!) horse stalls. Had the barbecue ribs confit - best ribs ever and so unique. Then had the roast chicken which was delectable as were the desserts. Could hardly walk after! Good thing we did this last!

The Stable Cafe presents a distinct menu for dinner during the Summer Concert Series at the Biltmore. Seared Sea Bass was perfectly prepared. My wife had a filet, and my daughter had goat cheese ravioli. The portions were generous. If you are attending the concert series, plan to dine at the Stable Cafe. Highly recommended.

We stopped in and had lunch between tours of the house. The food was good and affordable. The bison burger was great! The service was quick and helpful.
