The restaurant is in the old horse stable. Nice place to relax after touring the Biltmore House. I recommend the fried green tomatoes!

My husband, grandson & I enjoyed lunch here while visiting the Biltmore. Service was fantastic. My husband and I shared a burger and fries and my grandson had the chickpea burger. He said it was awesome. We split the grapefruit cake for dessert. No complaints here! Awesome!!

What a delightful treat after touring the Biltmore mansion! Just steps from the finish of the Biltmore house tour! Enter their antique stable, transformed into a unique and wonderful cafe! Blooming potted flowers on each table, added elegance. The food was delicious, and a very generous serving size. A great way to end the tour! Relaxing, delicious, unique!

We were exhausted after touring Biltmore Estate and this place was perfect to stop for a leisurely lunch! The smokey taste of the bbq sauce was a great combination with their ribs and the chicken was cooked perfectly. But the real star of the meal was the Grapefruit Chiffon cake! It was the perfect combination of sour and sweet. Sheer... More

After touring the Biltmore, we opted for lunch in this former stable-turned-café. Our server was very attentive and the food was scrumptious. We selected a perfect wine and even tried dessert which was also delicious. Not the cheapest lunch but worth every penny.

Great atmosphere, delicious food, a little pricey but so worth it! The restaurant is beautiful, and is literally the stables where the Vanderbilt's keep their horses!

Located on the grounds of the Biltmore Estates it is located near the hall of shops. Delicious food, great service. The prime rib French dip sandwich was delicious. My husband loved the rotisserie chicken. A little pricey, but worth it.
