Cedric's Tavern - Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
We stayed at Antler Village and chose Cedric's as our dinner choice. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was great. The scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains and being on the Biltmore Estate Compound in itself is enough to feel special. Cedric's made this even better. First we were served crusty rolls with spicy horseradish mustard spread. So tasty. We then chose starters which included the spicy Calamari and the Special of the evening-Roasted Shrimp and Grits with tomato sauce (Amazing!!). We also chose the Bison Burger with fries and the tavern salad. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. Worth the price tag with tip of $90. Highly recommend Cedric's Tavern if you are close to Asheville or visiting the Biltmore Estate!
It was good but not great. We chose that restaurant on the Biltmore estate because it was taunted as "English Pub" style food but other than fish and chips, nothing was very English. It was all good food and the service was fantastic but not what overall not we were expecting. I think we could have gone to any restaurant on the estate village and had similar food. Beer selection was cool.
We tried Cedric's for the first time as we were staying at the Village Hotel. We really enjoyed the appetizers (Calamari and Vegetables/Ricotta Gnuddi). The salad & Soup were okay and our dinners (Lamb chops and Beef Wellington) were just okay - Beef Wellington was cold inside. The waiter was excellent. If we went again, we would order a sample of appetizers rather than order entrees. The timing in the kitchen also seemed to be a little off. We had just started eating our soup & salad when the entrees were served which was a little disappointing. For the price, I expected a little better value.
The children of my in laws gathered for a reunion and celebration of their 75th wedding anniversary, 2 sibling and 1 in law birthday at Cedric's Tavern after a day of touring the Biltmore estate. Field to table dishes were good but not essentially better than we are able to get elsewhere, nearby, at a lower price. Even acknowledging that we're paying for ambiance and a bit of fantasy, did not make up for the difference. Our waitress poured water for four of the six and forgot to return with more water until our drinks and meals had been served. The musician in the bar area had the speaker volume at max and we asked the hostess to either move us outside or have him turn it down. We could not hear each other across the table to share stories and reminisce because of this. He did turn it down for maybe two songs. When he took a break everyone of us visibly relaxed.
We were staying on property over Memorial Day w/e and had dinner at Cedric's. Ordered the Lobster roll dinner ($35). Asked the server before I ordered, and he said, " I served woman from Maine who said it was great." Well, it had NO lobster flavor at all. My husband tasted it and commented, "If I closed my eyes and took a bite, I would have no idea what I was eating." We sent it back. It was that bland. A head server came over to inquire about it about it, as did the manager. I appreciate that they showed concern. They removed the charge for my meal, and offered a free dessert. I ordered the hummingbird cake which was really dry, had far too much frosting, and bland vanilla ice cream. The roasted pineapple compote was decent, however.
My husband ordered the Fish and Chips, which was exceptionally good.
We enjoyed our dinner at Cedric's Tavern on the Biltmore Estate, named for Cornelia Vanderbilt's St. Bernard, Cedric. This was an appropriate choice because we are at the Blue Ridge Classic of the Carolinas cluster of dog shows (agility, conformation, and obedience). I had the Lobster Roll which was very large and delicious, served with slaw and homemade chips. My husband had Fish and Chips and for dessert, he had the Blondie Brownie Sundae and I had Hummingbird Cake, both with ice cream, made in house.
After a full day of touring the Estate, we wanted an indoor dinner location that was casual with a varied menu to suit our group that included multiple generations. Cedric's was perfect. When we finished touring early (and had heartier appetites than anticipated), I was able to modify the reservation through Open Table for a last minute earlier seating. The fish and chips was served piping hot, and the Hummingbird Cake was unique and delicious. We will definitely return again.
This was our first visit to Cedric's. The food was very good and the service incredibly fast (almost too fast - I still had half my appetizer when the entrees came out). However, since many things on the Estate are timed, it was nice to have that extra time after a fast meal to go do something before our house tour. We had the smoked ham and cheese fondue, Shepherd's Pie, and the vegetable risotto and all three were wonderful.
Great place for dinner while staying at Biltmore, with upscale Pub Grub, and plenty of atmosphere! Ate there with a couple of my friends...I had the Steak And Tots, which was perfectly cooked . They had the Fish and Chips, and the chicken dish, all of which were delicious! Loved that you could choose a wine flight and sample 3 different Biltmore wines with dinner!
We made reservations for the outdoor seating but when we got there they told us that there is no reservations for the outdoor that it is first come first serve. We had 5 and elderly couple so we wanted to sit along the wall. So she said she could sit us indoors. I asked her if they could put 2 tables together and she seemed a little bit annoyed by that and so did the server. She said we would have to wait 10 minutes so that the server had time for us. But there was only 1 other table out there so I was confused by that. But they did, it was a very nice lunch and the food was wonderful. We have enjoyed the atmosphere there and the food is always good!!
Had reservations and checked in early (10 minutes) and given a pager and were told we had to wait for a table to be cleaned. Ten minutes AFTER our reservation time I had to go ask the hostess when we would be seated. They asked again for my name and I told her and showed her the pager. So 20 minutes after arriving and 10 minutes past the reservation time we were finally seated without any concern or apologies for the wait. Plus we observed several two top tables open during our wait which made this even more frustrating. Food was good, server was very attentive and prices were a little high (bison burger and fries $22)...
