The Stable Café was a welcomed break after a morning of touring at the Biltmore.....not that we were through, of course - just a welcomed break! The staff were friendly and fast. The food was even better. We chose appetizers for lunch. Our favorite was the pimento cheese dip. Oh My!!!! Such goodness has to be sinful! We've asked the... More

We had a nice lunch while touring the property. Good overall lunch. Just remember that the property can be busy and since the Stable Cafe is right next to the main house it can get very busy which of course will have the trickle down effect on wait times, food and service.

We had a catered group dinner here so the menu was limited but every single thing we had was wonderful, the staff was AMAZING! The restaurant itself is very charming, it used to be a horse stable and you can see some of the evidence of the stable when visiting. As everything else at the Biltmore it was BEAUTIFUL.

Quaint and air conditioned. I got the herb roasted rotisserie chicken and it was very good. The staff was nice and the prices were about what you would expect to pay at a tourist attraction. I would eat there again.

Have reservations so that when you tire from a day of exploring this wonderful treasure, you will have a great lunch waiting for you!!! The salads are wonderful and plentiful. Love the use of local grown produce!

Our waitress, Paula, was fantastic. We chose the Stable just to get into the air conditioning and did not regret our choice. Generous helpings and great service.

Food was delicious, atmosphere was perfect. Our waiter was very gracious. Just a very enjoyable place to sit down, relax and cool off after a tour of Biltmore Estate. Enjoyed very much.
