When we arrived our table was ready; however, we soon realized that at the height of the dinner hour, it was very noisy. The hostess and wait staff accommodated us right away and we moved to a quieter spot. The service was outstanding with our waiter, Chris, who was punctual with water/drink refills, knew the menu for suggestions and knew when to allow us to enjoy a leisurely dinner. Everyone's entrees were fresh, and well prepared. I would definitely recommend the bison burger! And the martinis were delicious! This new Biltmore venue is as well done as their other restaurants.
The only place at Biltmore we had a little troube
We tried to go for lunch, they said there was a wait, the restaurant was empty. We went back for dinner, the waiter got my order wrong. He corrected it, but charged us for both items.

Always very good pub+ food and drink. Not as reasonably priced as it once was, but very consistent quality and sparkling service. Lovely setting for both inside and outside (live music most evenings) dining. My partner had the bison burger which was fabulous. I had the vegetable & grains risotto which was unique and worth getting again-very flavorful and just rich enough.

The food was excellent, very fresh. We had the buffalo calamari, bison burger, and duck special. We were in the back of the restaurant. Would have preferred forward seating.
Great food and service
Great food with even better service. Ambience is a little noisy, but such a small sacrifice for what you get.

Just an all round enjoyable experience, food, staff, atmosphere. Visiting Biltmore on vacation and decided that dinner on site would be fun, turned out to be the meal we talk to our friends the most.
Great spot in village. Food was very good but a bit pricey for selection. Nightly specials were the best
Good location for food on weekends
Located in Antler Hill Village, Cedric's is a place to go to to enjoy a drink or a meal while enjoying live music.

Everything about Cedric's was really great! The Bison burger and fries was really tasty and cooked to my desired temperature. My wife's salad was also well prepared and tasty.
St. Louis Friends
Two folks from St. Louis came to visit. They were staying at the new hotel. Decided to have dinner at Cedric's. Service was very good. Food was good. Great background music! Wine was very nice. Cedric's is not gourmet dining by any means but the experience was good. We'll be back!
We have been to Cedrics many times for lunch and really enjoyed it. This trip we booked a dinner for my husbands birthday. We were left very disappointed. We started dinner with cold hard rolls. My husband ordered the lobster roll, and I ordered the steak and tots. The lobster roll was dry and tasteless. My steak was cooked perfect, but the sauce on the steak was so salty, it was nearly impossible to eat. Service was good, but overall, although we enjoy the lunch menu, we will not be going back for dinner.

We ate at Cedrick's Tavern for my wife's birthday and our stay in the village. The food was beyond amazing, we were asked for any needs / wants several times by staff and Patrick was one of the best waiters we've ever had. He was able to joke, fulfill our requests with accuracy and even brought up the fact it was my wife's birthday dinner. All around, great spot!
Cedric's was at the top our list to eat for our girl's weekend get away. Did not disappoint.
Will Let you order a take-out!
My name is Tim Mills and my wife and I had a 12:30pm reservation . The Food was Great, our Waiter was Great. We were to Full to do the wine tasting so we asked our waiter if when we come back could we order something to Take-Out? We didn't want it to set in the Car so long. We left and went back to walk the Gardens and do the shopping for the Grandkids. We came back and did the wine tasting and then about 4:30pm we were ready to leave. Went over to Cedric's to Order the Great Appetizer we had eaten earlier to Take -Out. The 3 people at the front desk said "NO" we don't do TAKE-OUTS on the weekends! There were not very nice about it. Date: was 4/1/16 at 4:30pm.
Bar Fare @ Beautiful Biltmore
The spot is less about the food, whose quality was "fine" but incomparable with much of Asheville's cuisine. This spot is all about location & ambience linked to the brand of Biltmore. The people & place are extraordinary.

Food was good, service was excellent, but it was so loud inside with the live music that you couldn't carry on a conversation.
Lots of Salt
Wonderful Reuben and cheese dish. Nice service. seated quickly. Take your blood pressure meds before the meal.
Mediocre food and really bad service.
But really nice people though. I ordered a Trout that it was ok, not terrible. My friend ordered a chicken sandwich that was dry and flat. We wait 35 minutes before we got our food.
Excellent service from Patrick
My first time dining here and I will come back with frienda
I booked our family dinner at Cedric's after perusing menus for all of the restaurant options on the Biltmore property. Cedric's appeared to have several options for particular eaters and our experience found that this was, indeed, the case. Our server was pleasant and attentive (without being hovering) and the food was good. I would not necessarily say it was "fit for foodies" but each dish was well-prepared and plated and we had a very nice dinner. There was live music so conversation was difficult (due to noise) but we liked the music so it added to our dining experience rather than detracting from it. I would recommend Cedric's for families who will be dining with children; adults can get a nice glass of wine and an "adult" entree and children can find things on the menu that will satisfy less sophisticated palates.
Nice respite on Biltmore Estate
Really fun bar-like atmosphere - food and service both good.
Service was excellent. Couldn't be better. Entree was perfect. However, we had the cheeseboard as an appetizer and it was lacking to say the least. This is an $18 appetizer that consists of four cracker size slices of cheese. I initially thought that our server would be back with the rest of it, but that was it. This was the most pretentious appetizer I have ever seen. I was blown away. I would recommend Cedric's to a friend and will go back myself, but I won' be ordering the cheeseboard.
You could not ask for better customer service!
On an extremely busy day, we were late and called to tell them we were on our way. They were very kind and said not to worry. When we arrived 20 minutes late, they greeted us as if we were on time and had caused no inconvenience. They were waiting graciously and we were most appreciative.
Pricey but great food.
Good food but a little overpriced for what it is. For a burger/fries, fish/chip our bill was $63. The burger had no toppings when brought to the table. I guess you have to ask for lettuce, tomato, etc. The wait staff were excellent. Will go back for the atmosphere and of course being on the biltmore estate.
First date in two years
My wife and I went here for our first date without kids on almost 2 years! We didn't know what to expect, but man were we pleased! Great food and atmosphere. It's pricey, but you can't put a price on a great night with your spouse!
This is not the first time I have been disappointed with Cedric's. However, it was a busy weekend and only place we could get a reservation. Incredibly loud, food mediocre, my trout was small serving , slightly "fishy"smelling and so dry I had to ask for some sort of sauce. The hamburger and fish and chips were ok. The ladies room was a mess, soap dispenser laying sideways on the counter. Water all over counter-place just needed a lot of attention. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone
Nice atmosphere but food is not outstanding
I ordered Manhattan clam chowder and was sadly disappointed by its taste and texture as I couldn't find a single clam in the bowl! I think they substituted fish based on the texture. My main entree(the steak and tots) was honestly about the best meat I had had a restaurant in a long time. So the delicious steak made up for the mediocre soup.
A Great Place to Welcome Spring
It doesn't matter if you're visiting from 'Up North' or just have Southern cabin fever. Cedric's Tavern in the Antler Village faces a green open area with spring flowers peeking through the grass. When we arrived, the windbreak was down along the patio seating. Although we ate inside, by mid lunch - the windbreak was rolled up and we enjoyed the view - a gorgeous day and lunch to banish our cabin fever. Cedric's uses housemade rye bread for the Reuben and the Bangers are also housemade. We ended the meal with a 'Nutty Irishman' trifle. After lunch, we walked Antler Village and enjoyed the afternoon. If we hadn't just had dessert, we would have stopped at the Creamery for ice cream cones. We'll save that for next time when the spring flowers are in bloom.
Didn't want to leave the Biltmore ground ...
Didn't want to leave the Biltmore grounds, but had to kill a few hours before our admittance to the Estate Home. Hiked everywhere, but needed to eat. Found the Tavern as an easy and perfect place. Made a reservation which was key as a truck load of visitors came in around the same time we did. They had our table and we had a great meal (My wife thought it was the best steak she'd ever had).
Great food and live music
We often eat at Cedric's tavern. We live in Asheville and get to enjoy eating there often. The service and quality food is top notch. If there is a question concerning the dish you ordered they are very good at making it right. The service is also top notch. We love to go there on a Friday night and listen to live music in the bar have a drink then have a lovely dinner. You can not go wrong eating here. The scottish salmon is our favorite.
Where to take visitors & everyone
Our latest visit was with out of town family visiting us. They stayed at the Village Inn & it was a short walk over for them. They loved everything about Cedric's. We've never been disappointed in the menu, our choice of meal, the service, or anything at all. We love to go for special occasions or just to eat where we know we'll have a great experience with wonderful food & service.
good food slow service
the food was fine. I really try to order something different each time I visit. I felt the like waitress had too many other tables including ours to deal with at the same time. As always, we'll be back.
Always a treat!
My daughter and I have season passes to Biltmore and live an hour and a half away, so every now and then, we just hop in the car and go up the mountain to visit Antler Hill Village. We may make it to the House and we may not ;-) Lunch at Cedric's is always a treat! She thinks of The Village as one of her Special Childhood Finds :-)
Great food at a great location
Excellent food on the menu, nice atmosphere, good music, great place to celebrate friendship or more with others.
Relaxing atmosphere, good food
Had a relaxing Friday night dinner, was seated within a reasonable time even though was late for reservation. Enjoyed the live music !! The pimento cheese appetizer is 5 star, the meal was good with plenty to eat. Received courteous service with a smile !!
Good Food, Great Service
Our meal was very enjoyable, and our waiter Chris was excellent. He was personable, knowledgeable with food recommendations and provided great service for our table of 4.
