“Nice local place”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is one of those place we can all go to. Whether I am with my family or a friend night out, the food and bar menu has something to make us all happy. Nice atmosphere though it is busy and gets noisy especially near the bar. Good choices: pub fries, kale salad, tuna tartare sandwich (my fav), fried chicken & waffles, and the burger. Frozen hot chocolate mousse is a nice ending to your meal. Try what's on the menu board especially the drinks.

“Can't go wrong here”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Great fried chicken and waffles. I always want to order something lighter but can never pass this up when I am at the Biltmore. Really good fish and chips too. We have been to the Biltmore many times, and never had a bad meal. Good beer selection as well, more than the typical craft beer selection. The bar area can be loud but main room has a comfortable noise level.

“Typical Bar”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Nothing spectacular here. Pretty average atmosphere, pretty average drinks, pretty average food, pretty average prices. The service is the one thing I'll give an above average rating to. They're extremely nice and approach the table immediately after sitting down.

“Always a solid experience”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

The Biltmore is always a great experience. Anytime we want a nice dinner out, The Biltmore does not disappoint. The menu is very good, the ambience is friendly and relaxed, and the beer selection is solid. This is solid food and a nice evening, without a lot of hassle. If you are interested in an active bar scene, they have that. Or, if you would rather sit down and have a nice conversation with dinner, you can do that too. I prefer the dining room. The Biltmore is popular, but even on a weekend, dinner for two is usually a 20-30 minute wait at the most, and that's a perfect time to have a beer and relax before dinner. The Biltmore is worth it.
