Diner Reviews
  • "If I would have gotten the table I reserved, it would have been great . We enjoyed the buffalo calamari and our main courses as well."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "We were seated promptly after arriving, our server was friendly and knew the menu. The salads were just so so. I had the fish and chips, which was very good. Large piece of haddock, very mild. My daughter ordered the vegetable risotto and enjoyed it very much. We all ordered a dessert to share, I forget the name of it but it was a peanut butter brownie with ice cream, caramel sauce, peanuts, and caramel corn. It was very tasty! The only complaint of the evening was from the two older members of our party who did not like the entertainment. It was a jazz/rhythm guitarist, very loud, and while good, was just a little too much at times - it would have been more appropriate had the music been a little quieter and calmer."

  • "Over priced for average bar type food. Previous visits fair value and more interesting food"

  • "We love the live acoustic nights. Visit the winery for free tasting prior to dinner for a great overall evening experience. The only downfall was we chose our favorite wine at the tasting and they did not even have it available at the restaurant. But, we love it here for lunch or dinner."

  • "The excellent service was the most notable thing about our visit. The staff made us feel welcomed and spoiled. I had the chicken breast with bread pudding, which was well presented and delicious. The description, in the menu, did say it came with an asparagus salad but mine was missing. I did not mention it to the waiter so I'm not sure how it would have been handled. Anyway, my friend had the shepherd's pie and thoroughly enjoyed it."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here on a glorious sunny Spring day. The food is well prepared and delicious. The service attentive. If you have time and want to experience an upscale English pub while visiting the Estate this is a good choice."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I had the short ribs and they were not as tender as I would have liked but the waiter did warn me that they weren't up to par today before I ordered them. Great beer choices, good food, and excellent service that you see in all of Biltmore. Would definitely recommend."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Cedric's is a cozy little tavern at Antler Hill village on the Biltmore Estate. The service, food, and ambiance were all outstanding. Our server was very attentive. Be sure to try the fish and chips and the Cornish pasty- they're the best I've had outside of England."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We have been to Cedric's numerous times and really enjoyed the food, service. However, this time my steak was very tough and my husbands fish and chips was very greasy. Not in a hurry to go back"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Cedric's pork chops are incredible. Bison burger is tasty. The Lusty Monk's mustard is great. We have bought several jars. The pickles are really good ,too. Be sure to ask for some pickles if your server doesn't bring them to you. You can buy those, too. Cedric's is a must for lunch &/or dinner when visiting Biltmore."

  • "were very disappointed with koi fish food with the price it is We wer disappointed in the quality of food, especially with most dinners costing at least $25 a meal."

  • "A visit to Biltmore Estate is not complete without stopping by Cedric's, even just to stop in and have one of their signature ales. We had a lunch meeting recently and their current menu offers a wide variety of delicious options from Jack and Coke wings to Shepards Pie. You simply cannot go wrong!"

  • "Our family of 6 were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Our server Tony was kind and energetic and accommodating. The food and service were great. We will return."

  • "Food was real good. Service was excellent. Ambiance was nice other than the family of 7 next to us who had a kid screaming and another one rolling around on the floor. The wine @ over $9 a glass was a little pricey for the small amount of wine in the glass. Could have been a little more generous. I would definitely go back again. Good Bison burger."

  • "Cedric's provided a truly delightful eating experience! The food was outstanding, as well as the service. The decor and building is beautiful and provides a magical restaurant experience! This was my second time eating there and I can't wait to go back!!! I loved it so much I bought a t-shirt!"

  • "Enjoyed a New Year's Eve lunch with my husband. We like to split a meal, so we chose the fish and chips. It was plenty of food and they brought it in two separate plates-very hot and delicious! For starters we enjoyed some Ginger wings-pretty good,but not as flavorful as expected. My husband enjoyed Coke with free refills and I had a nice cup of Herbal Ginger tea. If I had wine, I would've enjoyed some Christmas White-every year I love this! I brought some home. The waiter was very kind and attentive, but not overbearing. It was a lovely lunch! Afterward, we toured the poinsettia display in the greenhouse. I will definitely use this reservation service again!"

  • "This restaurant was nothing more than bland theme park food served in a building styled as an English Pub. The food was average at best and a bit greasy. The specialty/seasonal drinks were undrinkable - stay away from the Caramel Moon-tini. Some of staff were unhelpful. When asked for additional information about one of the sandwiches, the waiter repeated the menu word-for-word, offering nothing else."

  • "First time visit to Asheville to celebrate holidays. Decided to plan trip to Biltmore Estate during evening candlelight. Planned to enjoy Cedric 's and the village prior to tour, however we ran out of time. It was a little more pricey than we wanted, the food though was good and ambience was very nice."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "There are some not good food choices. For example... When you are torn between two genres and you ask your waiter... Don't go with the bison burger. Also... The Russian Pumpkin is an almost un drinkable cocktail."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had a 5:45 PM reservation and arrived early. We were seated within a few minutes, but did not care for the choice of tables since it was directly across from the kitchen and quite noisy. We asked to be moved and were. The next table (booth really) was very comfortable. Two of us had the Bison Burger and one had Fish and Chips. All were prepared excellent. Our server, Christoper, was attentive but did not hover. He made good suggestions about the preparation of the burgers. The musician, Eric Congdon, was excellent, and added to a nice atmosphere where you could hear his music (which was extremely enjoyable), but you could still talk over it without having to shout. All in all we had a wonderful time."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Excellent restaurant with excellent food and staff. Mix that with the views of the Biltmore Estate that surround you and you have a guaranteed find that will make you want to come back again. The staff gives you such attention that one feels as if the restaurant is serving only you. Eclectic dishes at reasonable prices add even more to the ambience of the establishment. If you are planning a trip to the area this is a must stop . Outdoor seating in warmer weather will offer an even more relaxed dinning experience. Enjoy!"
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "This was our first visit to Cedric's Tavern and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the fish and chips and my husband enjoyed the salmon. Both dishes were wonderful! Our server Tony was a great waiter, very informative, friendly and fun to be around. We definitely will re-visit in the near future."

  • "Great prime rib and trout. Special bread. Decor is 1900 plain. Decent but not warm atmosphere. Disney like."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "This is a great place to meet and have a meal (I.e., lunch or dinner). Some nights they have live music which tends to be live so the entire restaurant is live so be warned. Shepherds Pie is with Lamb so if you have never had lamb it is a different taste. The burger is absolutely wonderful but make sure you get it medium well because the meat is much more lean than our standard beef. And it is to die for."

  • "Great tavern atmosphere. & fun, unusual menu. Enjoyed Cedric's for lunch during our visit to the Biltmore."

  • "Hostess was snippy, service is slow, server was pleasant. Food is OK. This is more of an entertainment venue than a restaurant, music is very loud so discussion is difficult"

  • "This was our first time to Cedric's. We had a light lunch of soup and their charcuterie board. Both were very good. We would recommend Cedric's to anyone visiting the area."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Four of us had a delightful early dinner at Cedric's before the Candlelight Christmas tour at the Biltmore Estate. Our timing was tight - a 5:15 reservation and a 6:30 tour entry. We were set at ease by our timely seating, prompt service and the reassurance that our entry time merely meant that it was the earliest that we could enter. (So our arrival 15 minutes "late" after parking and taking the shuttle, was just fine.) Dinner was delicious, with three out of four having the trout. One of those trout eaters normally doesn't order fish! Desserts were 2 orders of Apple cranberry cobbler, shared. Wine choice was their Pinot Grigio. Everything was excellent!"

  • "The evening was wonderful at Biltmore, and then to come to such a wonderful restaurant just made the evening complete, The service was superb!! The atmosphere was a little loud, but we were still able to talk and catch up as we had not seen each other in a while. The wine was, of course, very good. I would definitely come back."
