Started with pimento cheese dip - not bad, but I think there are some of their sweet dill pickles in it and I am not a fan of sweet pickles. Enjoyed a Cedrics IPA. Ordered the Reuben which was very good. Between that and app, it was too much food!

While the food we had at Cedric's Tavern was fantastic (highly recommend the "Tots," fish and chips, and their pretzel rolls with mustard butter), what really stood out was the incredible service. Our server was engaged, enthusiastic, and extremely accommodating. When my partner's steak was served nearly rare when she had asked for medium-medium well, our server, the manager, and a chef all came to speak to us and made the meal from scratch WHILE taking it off the bill! Now that's incredibly thoughtful and diner-centric service. Would absolutely return.

The staff was very accomodating when we came early and had drinks and then moved to a table. We wanted to just have a few drinks before we ordered. The food was delicious and there were enough vegetarian selections on the menu for 2 vegetarians in the group. The ambiance is the best thing about this restaurant. Its so warm and lovely that you can't help feeling good about the meal.

Loved the Lobster Roll! the food was great and the wine was tasty. My husband had the Rib eye steak and he really enjoyed it. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone going to the Biltmore. It was a lot of fun.

We usually dine at Cedric's every time we are in town. This time, our seat location was such that the music, although very good, was VERY loud and made it impossible for my wife and I to have a conversation. The place was crowed and moving to another location was not possible. Also, we both had the bison burger. It seems that this entrée has been changed since we last had it and the addition of the bacon and barbeque sauce was not to our liking and we found the seasoned fries really salty. We always enjoy Cedric's, but next time we will be more careful about our seating location and our menu choices.

I have eaten at Cedric's multiple times and have always had a good meal. This time live music was playing and it was excellent. The menu doesn't change much but there is a nice variety even for a non-red-meat-eater like me. I had the special --scallops--which were cooked to perfection. Jesse served our table and did a great job. I miss the homemade pickles that used to be served.

We got there earlier enough that they were able to seat us outside. Tried their new fall menu. The turkey acorn squash chili needed more flavoring but it was a nice soup. As always loved the Cedric's brown ale. Enjoyed our meal and Adam our server was quite good and knowledgable of the menu.

A very attentive and personable server (Cedric), food that is consistently good across multiple visits, a comfortable ambience, and good dining value make Cedric's one of our favorite dinner locations in the Asheville area.

Our party of 6 included a vegetarian, a person needing gluten free food, and a 14 year old, picky eater. We were seated quickly, listened to carefully and guided appropriately through the menu and specials. Service was good. The only person who was not completely pleased was the picky eater who had to opt for a bison burger instead of a hamburger which would have been their choice. They found the bison a little dry, but ate the left overs the next morning with ketchup and declared it "Great!" We enjoyed our evening there overall. There was live music in the next room but it was never too loud, just a pleasant backdrop.

Typically, we choose the Bistro when on the Biltmore Estate. This time it was Cedric's Tavern. Diners do not get as large a menu selection as the one at the Bistro. Bread served is also better at the Bistro. That said, the food was prepared well at Cedric's--fried items did not have a "greasy taste." Service was as efficient as the Bistro--actually, maybe a little more anticipatory. The menu for kids is more desirable at Cedric's. Observation of kids at other tables supported the assumption that this is a better location for them. Because this was a birthday celebration, a cake was brought in and the server voluntarily arranged for there to be dessert plates and forks for everyone without it being requested. Also, the server brought a chocolate favor for each guest. One appreciates this customer-focused attention. Only negative from this experience occurred elsewhere. The gate attendant would not allow admittance for two guests of passholders until after 5:00 p.m. We arrived at 4:52 p.m. with reservations scheduled for 5:00 p.m. Obviously, this did not wreck our celebration, but it did begin the event with a negative feeling. We'll likely not be doing this again.

We went on a quiet Tuesday evening for my husband's birthday and had a great time! The hostess was very courteous and honored our request to sit outside, though that was not where she was going to originally put us. Then upon seeing the "happy birthday" gift bag I had brought for my husband, she asked if it was one our birthdays and wished him a happy birthday. After an awesome meal, our waitress brought out a delicious free birthday dessert without even being asked. The plate even had "Happy Birthday" written on it in chocolate. We were very impressed with their thoughtful service and will definitely go back!

Cedric's is a lovely restaurant in the Biltmore Estate Antler Hill area. It offers great food both casual and upscale in a relaxed atmosphere. While a bit pricey, the quality of food and service is well worth it.

We had a really bad experience with the kitchen. It took an hour to get our entree while we watched others around us being served. When the food arrived it was cold and of poor quality. The manager comped our entire check which we appreciated. The recognition of the experience we had restored our faith for perhaps another try in the future.

Far too expensive for what is served. $20.00 hamburgers ? $25.00 HADDOCK fish and chips ? Vary fishy taste - could not eat it. For $25.00 it should have been Halibut. The prices here are an insult to ones intelligence.... NEVER again will we have dinner here. Maybe a beer on tap and that's it.

I am a passholder and have been for many years. I am a little disappointed that requests for outdoor seating are not part of the reservation process. If they are not, please indicate that part on your website. This little bit of nit picking, nickel and dime-ing is growing weary and diminishing the level of service Biltmore provides. To make a reservation and find out when my party arrives that outdoor seating is not part of reservations is not impressing guests of passholders.

We had an advance reservation and they wanted to put us in a far back corner of the restaurant. They said that the tables more to the front and on the patio had been taken by walkins. We waited for some time for another table.
The food was very mediocre . The service was slow, it took about 20 minutes to get our check.
I would not go to this restaurant again.

Nice restaurant inside Biltmore Estate. Food was prepared expertly using farm fresh local meat and vegetables. Much better than I had hoped for at this location. A wonderful dining experience with attentive service!

We dined at Cedric's after touring The Biltmore. The servers were very attentive and pleasant. Dining room was very noisy. We were seated next to a very large party (two tables of 10 talking to each other). It appeared other tables further away from the large party were available. We didn't asked to be moved so I don't know if they were actually available. Food was mixed. Most of it was good and the tomato tart from my Summer Tomato Three ways appetizer was excellent. Nice selection of craft beers available and the two I tried were good.
Free live music outside at Antler Village was outstanding (Tuxedo Junction). While we dined indoors, we made a point of listening to the band for a few songs after dinner. There was also a live musician in the indoor bar at Cedric's. Bottom line, while the food was only good, the overall experience was still great. The ambiance of Antler Hill Village on a summer Friday evening with the live music was truly awesome. We would dine here again when visiting the Biltmore. Also note, reservations for dinner are strongly recommended (at least during peak season). We saw a few people come in who didn't have a reservation and they were given the option of eating in the bar or 1.5+ hour wait for a table.
