Sweet potato fries, roast beef sandwich, and waldorf salad were all delicious. However, at lunch time, the groups were probably 'blowing off steam' during their lunch hour from work. My husband and I could barely hold a conversation without yelling across our small table for...More

Perfect place for a last minute “where should we eat?” The Biltmore is full of local flavor (oysters!), excellent beer selections, and a cozy fun spot with friends or family.

The Biltmore is a casual pub style restaurant, using high quality ingredients. The atmosphere is very noisy. There is a great selection of beer on tap. The burgers are excellent, as is the steak tips. The fish and chips are pretty good, a big portion...More

Very good breakfast burger! The jazz music set up a fun and happy atmosphere. A pint of Harpoon Stout balance out my meal! My wife enjoyed the Mimosa!

Had the fish’n’chips. It was perfectly cooked: moist fish; crispy, delicate batter. Fries were also good. Recommended.

back in the 1980's and into the 90's and then it became this very popular GASTROPUB! The food got fancy and the prices got expensive and it was good and very crowded. Been a few years since we'd been there so we made a reservation...More

Enter the bar with hightops and move on to the linked storefronts with tables. Tin ceilings increase the noise level when the rooms get busy. Adequate parking in a lot behind the building, but the entrances can be obscure if driving past the wrong way....More
