Stable Cafe -Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews

we had a reservation but arrived 30 minuets late due to being on the tour of Biltmore House. They honored that and sat us within 5 minuets.
the menu is great, and they serve great food FAST without making you feel hurried.
But they get it that people want great food but need to be in and out because of tours.

We ate at the Stable Cafe prior to attending a Biltmore concert. It was a fixed 3 course menu. The food was good but not great. I had the trout and enjoyed it but you could tell it had been under the lights for a while. My husband had pork chop, which he said was so-so. Service was polite but not personable. We would go back prior to a concert but would not pick just for dinner. I would give lunch a try in the future.

This was our second visit to The Stable Cafe at Biltmore, both visits were during a concert so we do understand it being a special limited menu and being loud and hectic. What we don't understand is how the food can be priced so high while being such substandard quality. At best the food was only fair and certainly not what we expect from chefs at Biltmore. The prices were extremely high for what we received. Next time we come to a concert, and I'm sure we will be back, we'll eat at one of the outside vendors or order one of the picnic baskets.
We LOVED the service, the staff is GREAT and the atmosphere is outstanding. Our server was punctual, friendly, funny and very well experienced. She was a JOY to be around. Just very disappointed in the food.

The service was outstanding and the food was very tasty. A major problem existed with the HVAC system and it was most uncomfortable. We were seated in the up stairs or loft area of the stable and the air conditioning could not take care of the extra bodies in the room and the high temperature on the exterior of the building. It was a memorable experience but for the wrong reasons!

Another enjoyable lunch at The Stable Cafe kicked off a short but great stay at the Inn at Biltmore to attend the Mary Chapin Carpenter Emmy Lou Harris outdoor concert. Enjoyed a refreshing summer wedge salad with delicious strawberries and a cup of thick rich broccoli cheese soup. My husband said the southern chicken salad was top notch - just the right amount of mayo and the chicken was tender and flavorful. His starter was a bowl of broccoli cheese soup. A glass each of Biltmore Sangiovese complimented our lunches very well. Way too full for dessert..maybe next time.

In fairness, it was a very busy day at the estate, but we were seated next to kitchen and very busy server area. Trays were being carried over our heads and constant waiter traffic around us. Service was friendly but slow. It was not a relaxing experience but we liked our lunch just fine. I would not recommend it on a busy day and never accept a table next to kitchen.

Highly recommend the bison burger. It was the gem of our meal...very flavorful and juicy. The chicken salad croissant was just average; lots of mayo and lacking flavor. Can get very busy after noon so reservations are recommended!

We stopped in for a double date, and were seated immediately in a nice cubicle type area. This took the noise levels down some. Our friend was unpleased to find a lemon seed in his sprite, but overall the dining experience was great and our server outstandingly friendly and lovely. I do not recall her name, but I feel she should be given recognition.

Unique dining experience. Food good, service good.
We did have a reservation but had to wait 30 min like all walk ups. We were placed on same list as walk ups and hostess did not care that we had a reservation or give us priority.

Made reservation to avoid waiting for a table. Was escorted directly to a table. Waiter came soon for our drink orders and selection. Waiter was very personable. The chicken dish was a good homecooked meal. My wife and I enjoyed our meal in the stables of the Biltmore.

We were there for lunch and it was very busy. Ordered the bbq plate for 2. It was much more than we expected. You should have a hearty appetite if you order this. The ribs and roasted chicken were done to perfection but we couldn't fit the pulled pork.

Ambiance is very good dining in a restored stall. Dining partner thought the chicken salad was excellent. My turkey reuben was cold and the cheese wasn't melted. Seemed like the marble rye bread was toasted and the turkey pastrami, cheese and arugula placed inside the toasted bread. We also felt like we were rushed even though we ate lunch early when restaurant was nearly empty.

Very nice restaurant for lunch at Biltmore Estate. I had the buffalo burger - it was cooked perfectly and the taste was great. My wife had the chicken salad sandwich which was a bit dry. The taste was fine, but she did not like the overall texture of the sandwich. We were with friends and were seated in a stall which added to the experience. Overall, we were pleased with the restaurant, the food and the wait staff. I recommend the Stable Café for anyone visiting Biltmore Estate.
A good time was had by all
We eat at the Stable Cafe each time we visit Biltmore, telling ourselves we will try another location on the estate... but never do. Now that we are passholders and can return as often as we like, maybe we will but for now, the Cafe still remains a favorite lunch place when visiting Biltmore.
Delicious food in a wonderful atmosphere!
Thankful we had a reservation as the wait was getting longer quickly. We were able to walk right in and get seated. Service was incredible. The food was brought out in a timely manner. Absolutely delicious food plus they had vegetarian options(one of my children) and a children's menu(the other one). I would definitely eat there again!
Try the sampler!
You have to try the sampler! It has rotisserie chicken, bar b-q and ribs. All were absolutely delicious. Even though we were there on Easter Sunday and it was really busy, we were seated right away and the service was exceptional. I would highly recommend The Stables, but from what I experienced at Biltmore...you can't go wrong with anything on the Estate.
Great ambiance. Fast service.
This was a surprise. The venue is the old stables attached to the Biltmore estate. The stalls and still visible and add great ambiance. For a restaurants this large, the service was surprisingly quick and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Not as cheap as the self-serve options close by but worth it.
