We had a very good lunch with fast, friendly service and surprisingly reasonable (compared to prices elsewhere at Biltmore.) Our server, Tom, was pleasant and efficient and informative. He was able to answer our questions about the building, history and grounds. Very well informed and a great server.

Nice restaurant. Staff was friendly and food good. We were served promptly without a wait. There seemed to be plenty of seating.

We thought we could just drop in and stopped by while visiting Biltmore to check the space out. It was crowded and noisy and the wait was long. Although the place looked interesting to me, my husband was not very enthusiastic about the crowds and the long wait. Call ahead if you want to eat in the Stable ...

The food was good and location right on the Biltmore grounds. The service was also very good as everyone we ran into was super friendly and helpful.

We had lunch at the Stable Cafe around 2 pm today. We have eaten there before and it is always fresh and well prepared. The service was excellent and the server (Paula) was knowledgeable and personable. We will return.

My daughter and I each had the roast chicken. So succulent, juicy, flavorful! It was served atop mashed potatoes, surrounded by fresh broccoli and cauliflower. Every bite was delicious! Love this place.

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant with some friends. It is conveniently located right near Biltmore House so you don't have to travel anywhere to eat. The food was good and the restaurant was clean. The one issue we had was that the restaurant was super packed and for some reason they didn't open the second level. The fries... More

We had a lunch meal after touring the house. After doing all that walking we were ready to sit for awhile and have a bite to eat.
