My husband and I had lunch there after the house tour. The food was tasty - I had chicken salad and he had a wedge salad with chicken. We also had the pimiento cheese appetizer and it was very good. However, those three items with tip was over $50. Expensive for a salad, sandwich and appetizer.

This is a wonderful place for lunch. We had reservation for the 2:00 guided tour. This is just outside the main door so we could sit & enjoy the surroundings until it was time for the tour. Any food choice would be great. We had 4 different things & no one was disappointed.

I like the ambiance of the Stable Cafe. It's neat to think horses were in the cafe at one point. In addition, food was great as well.

Had a fantastic late lunch on our visit to the Biltmore Estate. Food was very good and the stable was beautiful. Wait staff was extremely friendly and professional.

After our Estate house tour we ate dinner at the Stable Café. Food was excellent, I had the Bangers and Black Eyed Peas. Peas were field peas and bangers had a much different taste than the smoked sausage I am accustomed too but I would definitely order again. Hamburger and Rotisserie Chicken were excellent! Can't help you with dessert, we... More

This cafe is on the grounds of the Biltmore Estate. It really was the stable house back in the day. We had lunch here while visiting. We had the chicken salad and the french onion soup. Both were very good. Service was good considering the large amount of people visiting that day.

This place was reasonable prices considering it was on Biltmore Estate. The kids chicken fingers and fries were of good quality. The basic cheeseburger was a little on the dry side but still fine. The wedge salad was ok but mostly iceberg lettuce so a bit tasteless. Key lime pie was a highlight as was the impeccable service. The service... More

We enjoyed lunch here after our tour of the Estate. It is very busy. Originally they said about a 40 min wait, but it ended up being about 30 minutes. It is a converted stable. I had a strawberry salad with bacon and blue cheese it was very good. My husband had one of the beers - a Cedric's Nut... More
