The Stable Café is on the Biltmore Estate so you will have to have a ticket to the Estate to get there. The Stable Café is part of the Estate House and was the original stables. Generally they are open for lunch but during the Candle light Christmas tours and the Summer Concerts they do a wonderful dinner menu. I... More

When in NC I had to try the Barbecue. So while on the Biltmore I decided to have some at the cafe. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Plus I can say I had lunch at the Biltmore.

This was our third visit to the Stable Cafe at Biltmore Estate. My husband loves the barbecue. My favorite is the chickpea burger. This time, a member of our party had a food allergy. The staff was wonderful and extremely attentive. Get there early for a quiet lunch and a great break.

Husband and I thought a little on the pricey side for food being ok. He had the burger and couldn't finish it because it was undercooked. I had the sample platter of ribs, chix etc which was ok. The cheesey grits were good! Service was really good and waitress was nice and attentive. Eating in the stables was cool.

Surprising number of selections for refreshment or a light lunch. Plenty of seating both open air and sheltered. Near wonderful gift shops for browsing.

We were visiting Biltmore Estates and decided to have lunch here. It was wonderful!! I had chicken salad sandwich and hubby had the classic burger. Staff was wonderful and our waiter was great. It was really neat to eat in the former horse stables. We had a great time and food is delicious.

We had to visit due to the fact this was once Biltmore stables. The Stable Cafe was amazing in design, and knowing that this once was an actual stable. The sangria was great and the horse and carriage moonshine was very potent. The food was very good, would recommend the pork barbecue, the sauce was great, fries were perfect and... More

We enjoyed our lunch in "The Stable". Relaxing and fun. Service was great and so was the food. Of all the places we ate at on our vacation, this was our daughters favorite.

We didn't expect to get in for a table but walked right up and got a great table for 4. Loved the booth in the stable stall. Burgers were good and large. Quick service, sweet waitress. Neat environment. Would do again. Glad a friend suggested.

Only had to wait 10 minutes for a table at lunchtime. Server was excellent and made great suggestions. Bison burger was really great and flavorful. Cafe sampler (ribs, pulled pork, chicken) was fantastic. Did not sit in a stall but atmosphere was really cool. Recommend highly for lunch.
