Cedric's Tavern - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews

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 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.

Perhaps our expectations were too high because the Biltmore House and the Inn at the Biltmore Estate were so splendid, but the food here was highly mediocre. Great service, fun atmosphere, convenient if you're staying on the property, but I would recommend making the effort to get into Asheville.

I was a bit disappointed in the food. While the presentation was good, it lacked in taste. My daughter and her friend liked their kids meals of grilled cheese, but not the chicken fingers. They just didn't have much flavor. The same thing could be said for the fish and chips and the salad I ordered. I don't know how fish has no taste, but it didn't. The salad was also tasteless and dry. I didn't even taste the blue cheese. The chicken wings had a good taste, but were weirdly rubbery giving it an odd texture and making it difficult to eat. My husband gave up eating them, but the waitress very kindly took them off the tab. My husband did enjoy his New England Clam chowder. If you are staying on the grounds, the restaurant has a nice ambiance, but just stick with a safe choice. I just feel for the price, the food should have been better.

We took out of town friends here and were disappointed. A few comments:
1) Open Table lists this as $$ out of $$$$ and though there are entrees that would fit in that price range, most are in the $$$ range.
2) The food was good. At our table we had the Scottish Salmon and the Fish & Chips. Everyone was pretty happy with what they ordered.
3) The service was not up to Biltmore standards. Though our server was pleasant enough and knowledgeable, she never refilled our waters (and 3 out of the 4 of us only had water to drink). In addition, our main course came before we were all finished with our salads. Granted, it was a different server who brought the main course out but I'm sorry, if I am paying $40 per person for a meal, I do not want to have to hand one plate to my server so she can set down another one. We literally didn't see her again until it was time for the check.
Bottom line - if I'm already on the Biltmore Estate I would eat there again but I won't make a special trip to dine there. Too many other fantastic options in Asheville.

Cedric's Tavern was a great spot for late night dining, after a travel day on the road. The atmosphere was relaxing with the live music playing. The best appetizer was the ham and swiss fondue with sourdough bread for dipping. Only wish the dinner menu had more variety to choose from, leaving us to choose from pricier steak and chicken options, to limiting sandwiches and one bison burger option. Still excellent food, and plenty of wine options. As expected the service levels were above and beyond.

Fish and chips were excellent! However, the lobster roll was watery. They need to dry off the lobster before putting on the roll. But overall a nice place to grab a bite. A bit pricey for what they offer. Nice live music for dinner!

The meal was what we expected. We had a reservation and got our table within 5 minutes. Ordered the calamari as an appetizer--would not recommend as it was nothing special at all. Our table had the pork chop and steak & tots as the entrees. The pork chop was plump and juicy. The steak was just 4 pieces of some kind of beef that were over cooked from the medium that was requested. Overall, a nice dinner but would have liked all aspects of dinner to have been the same quality.

When at the Biltmore Estate, this is our favorite place to have a leisurely lunch. The staff is always accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu items. Ask for the home-made chips (not listed on the menu) instead of the french fries. The fries are pretty much typical, but the chips are worth the calories.

We had a wonderful time at Cedric's Tavern to celebrate my husband's birthday. He had the salmon, which I tried, and it was excellent. I had the fish and chips, again excellent. I had made a reservation on Open Table, noting a special dessert with a candle for my husband and they delivered. We had a really great time and will definitely dine there again.

Cedric's is a town gem! What a wonderful atmosphere with live music, great food, and delicious drinks! There were people of all ages dancing to the music as we enjoyed dinner. Our server was so nice and friendly, and we definitely will be going back ASAP!
