“Good food, crowded but good service”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

The food was good, we had a problem with it but they corrected it without a hassle. Most of the time there is a pretty good wait. Our lunch was included in our hotel vacation package. It is a little pricey but going to Biltmore is a special occasion so I wouldn't mind eating there at the regular price.

“Great meal!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

This was the highlight of our trip to the Biltmore estate. We went for lunch, had a fairly long wait, but the hostess was very pleasant and gracious. Because there were so many people, it was crowded and a bit on the noisy side, but that's to be expected when seated in a stable! We both had the roast chicken, mashed potatoes and vegetables. The chicken was incredible. The veggies were done to perfection, but the mashed potatoes were out of this world! It seems silly to rate a restaurant on it's mashed potatoes, but these were the most delicious we have ever tasted! Everything about this meal was great. As a horse person, I really enjoyed eating in the stable, too!

“Good, but dinner prices”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Went for lunch. I had the herb chicken and hubby had the burger. It was good - cannot say anything negative about the food. Lunch prices are much better than dinner prices, but they are still up there. $13 for the burger and $16 for the chicken. Lovely restaurant inside and waitstaff were helpful and friendly. I just believe that $10 for a burger is more than enough. There were a lot of people standing around not doing much. If they lowered their prices on food, I guarantee these individuals would be plenty busy. It's a good place to eat.

“Great Food”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

I liked the fact the the vegetables are grown there and served in the restaurants. I also liked that this place had an open kitchen. The food was excellent. They are generous with the portions for the children as well. We had six adults and four children and out bill was under a hundred bucks. The pulled pork was very good as well as the tomato based soup they had. My husband ordered the open face turkey sandwich and that was very good as well.

“Excellant service & food”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We had reservations for dinner Monday night before Christmas before our evening candlelight tour of the House. Beet salads, salmon, & sausage risotto were all very good. We skipped dessert since we would have some after the house tour. Even though there was a huge crowd waiting, we were seated almost immediately in one of the first floor "stalls". Remember this was once the estate stables. Our server was right there with recommendations and he constantly checked on us thruout the meal.
