Used to be one of our favorites, was good to come early with kiddos or later with friends/date. Have not found the updated menu items to be as good and the service absolutely declined. Too close to Dunn Gaherins not be great.

The Biltmore bar and grill is an exciting neighborhood restaurant / bar. Looks very nostalgic inside with their paintings and photos . Great assortment of drinks . Food is excellent.parking a little tight out back.

Good cold brew and a nice selection on draft. The onion soup was a bit different with cheese filled croutons instead of the cheese melted on top. I had the London Broil pile up and it was melt in your mouth delicious. Service was very good

Just had a wonderful al fresco dinner with the kids. They've changed the menu and have added a variety of excellent selections. Had the Arizona burger---delectable! Kids had the breaded---but not fried---chicken tenders. They looked so good I snagged one! We had ms. Jenny as our server. She was superb!!! Really enjoyable evening under the stars. Will definitely be back.

This bar was great for our late evening get together. It was within walking distance from the Biltmore hotel we were staying at. Good service and nice staff.

The place was packed, and yes, the service was painfully slow.. I have to give an excellent rating as I believe their end product proved more valuable than the wait. The food was to die for, prepared with their standard, and a very apologetic waiter put things in perspective. We heard the kitchen was "swamped", yet, under pressure, still delivered... More

Dinner after a walk at the Hemlock Gorge. Yummy burger with Russian dressing and side of delicious green beans with garlic and bacon. I accidentally spilled my water and the waitress was quick to notice and clean up. We were seated quickly and we got our food quickly.

Visited this place for dinner this week on the recommendation of friends. If you like beer then there was a good choice. The cocktails where a little disappointing in range, flavor and volume. Food was fine, but not spectacular. Overall, if you are in the area then pop in my but don't make a special trip.

We have not been there since their recent expansion and renovation. We were pleasantly pleased with our dinner last Friday night. We had dinner on the dining room side – the bar area is a little noisy as expected. My wife and I split a Caesar salad that was big enough for both of us. She had the steak tips... More

The Biltmore won't take bookings over 6 people. Tried to book for a party of 10 - they clearly didn't want the business so my wife and I won't be back, with or without 6 people at any time..
