The Biltmore is a great local scene which is perfect for brunch, lunch, dinner, or drinks. Very kid friendly as well with a good selection of options for them. The burgers are excellent as is the pulled pork! Nice selection of beers that has some great standards and a variety rotating through.

In December 2013 I wrote a positive review after having lunch at the Biltmore with my wife, our son& spouse & 2 grandchildren. In 2015 spouse and I and a visiting cousin (3 adults this time) went here for lunch. We were not disappointed – seating and ordering was quick and efficient. For food Margherita flatbread was had by all... More

This is one place where ordering the burger is the best idea you can have. The Biltmore is a great place for drinks, but even better for some great bar chow. Have some pub fries or their awesome mac & cheese fritters while drinking one of the over dozen IPAs, lagers or ales they have on draught. But make sure... More

Loved the vibe of this place! (The tables and walls are painted with chalkboard paint so you can write all over them). The selection of beer was very good as well and they had some really cheap $3 drafts! Waitstaff was a bit scattered and awkward. Food was ok...typical pub food. Would come again for drinks only.

Drinks are expensive, wait staff is slow, food is "ok" - two things we wanted they were already out off and it was only 4:30 in the afternoon. My husband ordered a burger medium well and it was raw. I will give them credit for the fish and chips - it was good. It's not a place I would return... More

In general think pub food - primarily fried and not very healthy. Tastes delicious but you regret it later. Fortunately for us, there were some healthy options including some very good salads and a fish taco dish that was also very good. Our waitress was great. There is music on Saturday nights.

We always enjoy dinner at The Biltmore. Pub fries are a must for an app. My husband loves the Biltmore burger with bistro sauce. Fried chicken and waffle is delicious and a side of Mac and cheese with any dish is amazing! They have a little patio on the side for outdoor seating which is nice in the summer time.... More
