Cedric's Tavern - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews

Better than any pub food I had in English pubs! We had a "tomatoes three ways" appetizer that was fabulous. It included a tomato tart that was amazing, a tomato/seltzer drink and another treatment with some goat cheese. Stunning start to our fabulous meal which was followed by fish and chips. The portions were generous and the batter on the fish was very light. The whole meal was quite tasty, and they had lots to choose from for drinks.

Cedric's Tavern was okay. I was hoping for more, but also didn't walk away completely dissatisfied. Part of the initial disappointment was the service. We sat at our table for almost fifteen minutes before anyone approached us and it wasn't busy. I was at the point of returning to the host stand when a waitress from another section asked if anyone had approached us. She found our waitress and we got the ball rolling. We all got the beer flights which was a great value and fantastic way to sample local beers. The house bread is fantastic, in the form of warm and crusty pretzel rolls alongside a serving of mustard butter. These two items were perhaps the highlight of Cedric's. Entrees we experienced were the Bison Burger, the Shepherd's Pie and the Chef's Fish and Chips. All were presented well and looked appealing. Everything was tasty, but nothing was "oh, you've got to try this," good. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the black and white photos of Cedric, the Vanderbilt's beloved Saint Bernard that adorn the walls. So, overall we had a fine time at Cedric's but had higher expectations for a Biltmore Estate restaurant.

We ate here last year and had an excellent meal. Joined another couple for dinner and were all very disappointed. While the service was excellent the food was not. Everything we had, and we tasted most of each others selections, was at best mediocre.
The outdoor patio is nice and comfortable, but this restaurant will no longer be on my list.

Although I had a reservation for a single person and requested to be seated outside, I was passed over by many walk ins with no reservation which were seated outside. I was finally seated inside and told there were no available outside seats. My perception was a single seating was not worth the effort over a group seating. Although I was traveling by myself I felt less welcomed than if I were accompanied by a man or just a single man asking to be seated.

We had a lovely dinner after my dad and brother toured the Biltmore House. Service was lovely. The Farro "risotto" was delicious. Prices are on the level of hotel dining, to be expected. But worth it for a comfortable and enjoyable meal.

We had such a fantastic meal at Cedric's I cannot believe we did not discover it sooner.mwe were looking for good quality food in a upscale but nor snobbish atmosphere and we got all that and more. We had top shelf cocktails, the wings which were excellent and then an amazing Estate raised ribeye and lamb chops......fantastic. Our server Jen was superb too !! We have our annual passes now and plan to be back often, there are so many dishes we want to try. The quality of food it top notch.

Unfortunately, after a perfect day touring the Biltmore, this place was a total downer. The hostesses did not offer a warm welcome. The waitstaff lacked knowledge of the menu, nor motivation and effort to find out answers. The fried fish was good, but fries were soggy and slaw very bland. At least the manager did compt the whole table's meals after a friend found a hair in her lobster roll.
So, they lost our OpenTable reservation. ...
So, they lost our OpenTable reservation.....took some time to find. Seated us in a crowded room. Scratched/dirty glasses were already on the table. When I asked for new glasses, the waitress seemed quite put out and annoyed. Ended up with scratched glasses anyway. Food was fine, but not worth price point (entrees are $28 to $45). Too loud to have a conversation, tables too close together. Would not choose to eat here again. Spend your money elsewhere.
We made reservations in advance and our ...
We made reservations in advance and our table was waiting for us on a very busy evening. The atmosphere was lively but casual. Even though the restaurant was full, we could easily hear the live singer and converse comfortably. We were greeted promptly by our server, Adrian. He made us feel right at home and helped us through the menu and we settled on a lobster roll and a bone-in veal ribeye. Both meals were among the best we'd had in a long time. Adrian's friendly, easy manner and professional attention to every detail made the whole experience wonderful. We will wholeheartedly recommend Cedric's and we hope to visit again.
Quaint Getaway While at Biltmore Estate
This is the second time I have dined at Cedric's, and both visits have been exceptional. The menu has unique items along with some standards. The food is always served at the proper temperature, seasoned perfectly. We sat outside both times and experienced the views, but there was live entertainment available to those sitting inside.
Treating our grandchildren
We have observed in the past that the restaurants on Biltmore Estate either overbook or are understaffed on holidays and busy weekends, and this recent visit on Memorial Day was no exception. what we had planned as a special meal with our grandchildren was disappointing with a too long wait for food and the service just okay.
Always an enjoyable evening
Cedric's Tavern is a great place to have lunch or dinner. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is fun for both young and old, and the location in Antler Village makes it a conducive spot to take a break for lunch or end your day for dinner. I highly recommend this establishment.

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.

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.
