Stable Cafe -Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
I must say the server was great, but the food was less than par for Biltmore. We went there for a late lunch after the Easter Sunday festivities they provided in front of the estate. The menu was skimpy and the food was OK. There were very few people at the Stable Cafe; I was expecting it to be packed. We had 7 in our party and the food took quite a long time to come out. With two hungry children with us, it made things a little uncomfortable.
Lunch was delightful! Our selections were the chicken salad croissant with homemade kettle chips and the pulled pork plate, both were delicious! I had a Cedric's Pale Ale which complimented the meal and my wife said the blackberry lemonade was very refreshing, just the right combination of tart and sweetness! For desert we shared the Lemon Poppyseed Cake, do not attemp to eat this alone! It is definitely more than two people can eat and it's amazing to say the least! Great food, fantastic wait staff and wonderful historic atmosphere!
The service was wonderful. The food was delicious, filling, and served in a timely manner. My husband and I came to Biltmore for our second wedding anniversary and chose this restaurant to dine at because of the menu selection and the unique design and recreation of the horse stable into a restaurant. Giving 5 stars for everything except ambiance because we were seated right in front of the door and took away from truly enjoying the atmosphere and conversation with people constantly walking right past us and the hostess station being so close even though most tables were empty(we had a reservation at 11am.) that was the only negative thing about the whole experience and I am sure we could have had that changed if we had mentioned it. Worth the money, would recommend planning ahead and making a reservation to skip the wait.
Fun, unique, historic venue located in old stables on the Biltmore Estate Property. Service was slow,(our particular wait person's attitude seemed like we were putting them out, but observed this was not the general attitude). Restaurant was very busy( as it has been both other times I have been there). Previous visit during lunch, we waited approximately 40 minutes for a table. Food was average, and expensive for what it was; but as a tourist destination this is to be expected. (Total bill for 1 lemonade, 1 beer, 1 burger/fries, and 1 dessert plate was $37.00 without gratuity. Dessert sampler was $11.95 for four, silver-dollar sized treats). Burger was average. Dining area is very loud, and tables are very tightly spaced, although booths are available. Would definitely recommend reservations.
We completely enjoyed our lunch at the Stables. My friend and I shared the barbeque plate for two and it was delicious and plentiful. Our third guest had the soup and quiche of the day and declared both tasty and satisfying. The service was excellent. Our waitress was attentive and very engaging. We would certainly recommend the Stables to Biltmore guests.
After touring the Biltmore with a bachelorette party we made a lunch reservation here. It is right next to the mansion. We sat upstairs and loved it.
The fried green tomato grilled cheese was DELICIOUS as was the pimento cheese app! Service was quick and our waitress was friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend for a casual lunch during your visit to the Biltmore estate!
Great place for lunch,-very glad we made reservations-they were very busy. Service was good and food was delivered quickly considering the number of guests in the restaurant. Food was fresh and traditional. Seating is in the original horse stables at Vanderbilt estate,- nicely done!
The food was delicious! The waitress was so friendly, happy and accommodating. I told her that I wasn't feeling very well and she recommended a cup of soup with crackers and buns. I also had the chicken salad. Wow! My husband had salmon with a sauce on it which was fabulous. It was such a pleasure to dine there. Will definitely return.
We had spent four hours on our feet admiring the beauties of the Biltmore Estate when we stopped for lunch at 2 pm. We were seated quickly and greeted warmly by both hostess and our waitress.
She quickly delivered our drinks and then enthusiastically answered questions about items on the menu. Our food came quickly as well, and we found both dishes well-prepared. I highly recommend the bison burger for its tenderness and delicious taste. A huge piece of key lime pie with a towering cover of meringue finished off the meal. The meringue was the best I have ever eaten.
Even when we had finished our meal and paid the bill, our waitress remained attentive. We were never rushed and felt comfortable taking our time at the table as we admired the beautiful repurposing of the stable.
We love having a meal here when we visit Biltmore. The food is excellent and the service was great. We had chicken salad, roasted chicken, and the fresh basil tomato soup. We cleaned our plates. The only thing I would love more is if you could have a meal here without having to buy tickets to visit the house. We would come more frequently then!
This is a nice place to eat after touring Biltmore. We made our reservation for 2 hours after our tour time, which worked out perfectly. It's the only place to eat with indoor seating right by the house. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the converted stables and even the kids liked the food.
Good stop during Biltmore visit. The hostess was unfriendly and condescending and we had a reservation. Ordered soup and had to ask for a piece of bread. Very noisy, food ok, quick delivery and convenient for visit but nothing special and front desk really off putting
Wonderful day at Biltmore with a great lunch! They even gave us a complimentary dessert since it was our anniversary. Very personal touch. Loved the White Sangrias they were delicious. Food was tasty and service was fast. Great restaurant for a lunch while touring Biltmore.
We were told to have BBQ at the Stable Cafe and it was good. The Bison burger was tender, but not much flavor. The pulled pork was juicy, tender and just the right amount of smokey flavor. I actually ate most of it without the sauce which was a little too sweet for my taste.
To eat at the stable cafe, you must first pay to get into the biltmore estate. assuming that is not an issue, then this restaurant is a possible choice, provided you have a reservation.
pricing is on the high side. the hamburger plate was $15.50 and the turkey sandwich with chips was $14.95. The burger was a good size and nicely cooked medium rare. the fries were cold, and were quickly replaced when requested.
the high point of the meal was the three cheesecake sampler. these were excellent.
service was very good.
My husband and I have been Season Passholders for several years. Using our free appreciation tickets we brought friends with us who would not have been able to be there otherwise.
From the moment we arrived at The Stable our friends couldn't stop raving about the restaurant. The ambiance, the historic building, and the food ( the best chicken salad I've ever eaten ), lmy tomato bisque and the guys burgers were also excellent .
We always love eating at the Stable when we bring friends to tour the Biltmore. It's fun to look about and envision what the stable would have been like at the turn of the twentieth century. The food is delicious and there's always something to please everyone.
This is my second visit to the stable. How fun to dine in the old stables from Biltmore! It is a beautiful facility. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. I had a kale and quinoa salad, my husband had a Carolina bar b q, which was pulled pork. The portions were very large. You could consider sharing a meal. Can't wait to return.
My wife and I spent the day at the Biltmore House and decided to have lunch at the Stable Cafe. We arrived a bit early but were seated promptly and ordered a cool glass of ice tea. (They do have wine and beer made on the estate for those so inclined.) The historical setting is certainly part of the experience and we were seated squarely in the middle of what was a huge stable in the early 20th century. I order a smoked turkey sandwich and my wife had the Italian Grilled Cheese. Both were made with fresh and delicious ingredients from the estate. Mine had a side of kettle chips and they were spicy and tasty. My wife's grilled cheese which she said was the best grilled cheese she had ever had came with the blandest pasta salad ever. Substitute the chips for the pasta salad, you won't be sorry. Throughout the service was prompt, attentive, and friendly. If you are going to spend the day at the Biltmore House I strongly suggest making a reservation at the Stable Cafe for lunch. Its seconds from the entrance to the house and you will not be disappointed with the food.
