The food was not up to the level we are used to. My ribeye was smaller than the 12oz specified by the server and very thin. For the most expensive item in the menu, I expected a more substantial cut of meat. Outback Steakhouse for less cost would have been a better choice for the same cut of meat. The plating in general was also just messy. My wife’s buffalo burger and fries were bland, and her ketchup for the fries was hot, like it had been under a heating lamp for too long. Our meal came out after that of a table that was both seated after us and ordered after us, and our server was never anywhere to be seen when we needed something.

The fish and chips are always good! The bison burgers were really good. The special shaved ham, spinach, pimento cheese with tomato jam sandwich was really good! We enjoyed our family outing for Valentine's weekend with two grown children and significant others. This restaurant is always a good, crowd pleasing choice for a Biltmore lunch. Thanks again for seating us on upon our late arrival. It was much appreciated by our entire party.

Had trouble getting through the gate. Only season pass holders are allowed in that area however, the security guard took pity on us (thanks Gene) and let us through for our dinner reservation. Meal was outstanding in every way.

The noise was from the table next to us, nothing to do with the restaurant! It was great! The stone ground mustard butter and pretzel bites and the ham and cheese appetizer were fabulous! Our server, Adam Huff was great and personable!

We will definitely be back! Thanks!

Great service and food in an upper-end pub-style setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our Valentine's Day lunch of chicken wings followed by fish and chips here. Both dishes were served with a flair.

Birthday for my daughter, and we had the grandbabies too. We love Cedrics and as passholders we go frequently. Granddaughter Alice says she wants 'Cedric to cook her a hamburger' and she brings her stuffed Cedric puppy to put on the table for the meal. Food is always delicious, I had the risotto with salmon and it is a favorite.

The special was skirt steak. I asked for it to be cooked well done. It came medium. The waitress apologized and offered to take it back to have it cooked to my liking. I declined since everyone in my party was already eating and I didn't want to hold them up. Our waitress was very apologetic and very nice. This will not deter me from coming back to dine at Cedric's.

The atmosphere was nice and the restaurant if very nice and welcoming. We enjoyed our dood however we felt there was not a huge selection and the prices were pretty high. We did enjoy our food but felt that $50 for two people with one being a hamburger and fries was a little pricey.

Cedric's Tavern is becoming more and more our get-a-way for a great day hide-a-way. Both my wife and I enjoy the ambiance, warmth and hospitality we receive when dining at this wonderful place. The service is absolutely the best. The food quality is at its peak and of course, the selections are numerous.

Great meal. Started with the fondue app which was delicious! I had the flat iron steak with roasted root veggies. It was very good. My husband had the ribeye which was not as good as the price suggested. My son had the bison burger and he loved it.

Food was great, our waitress, Pam, was awesome. She was very attentive and gave great advice. I tried the Bison burger. I had never had this type of meat and she described perfectly how it would taste. There was live music, so if you are wanting to talk I would ask to be seated further away from music.

Food is ok for Asheville but not up the quality of other Biltmore food establishments. Our waitress barely knew the menu and couldn’t answer any drink questions. We were there 90 minutes and after our food came out she filled our water glasses once but never asked how the food was.

My husband and I really enjoyed out lunch at Cedric's Tavern in February 2019. The server was very nice and the food was delicious. We both had burgers and they were juicy and flavorful. I had asparagus and it was excellent and my husband had fries and he said they were good. We had the deviled eggs for an appetizer and they were also yummy.

Friend visiting from a far away land.... Maine. She needed some shelter from the cold, cold snow. My husband and I thought she needed a Biltmore fix! Cedric’s Tavern was the best solution. We had wonderful server, Nicole, and Jason Whittaker, the musician, sang every song we loved. The food .....amazing, ........ absolutely best place to go to unwind and enjoy friends. Thanks!

Musician was fabulous and made the night however the waiter was subpar as he forgot a order of soup, was not refilling drinks on time and others had to supplement him. Overall, this was the first issue we experienced that wasn’t superior service. We will return again.

Even though restaurant was almost empty (freezing temps that evening), service was slow. We weren’t in a hurry so it was okay. Waitress offered to trade out portion of meal I found too salty- but took so long we were ready to go. Dinners were good (ribeye and salmon) dessert was okay. (Creme brulee too thick- creamy not custardy.)
Went back for lunch next day and enjoyed food (fish and chips) and great service!

Best atmosphere on the estate. Casual enough for jeans, super easygoing with a great bar menu. Most importantly, the food hits just the right note between everyday casual and out of the box upscale.

We have eaten at Cedric’s several times, on this occasion we brought our Son, wife and granddaughter. We found the unper dinning back room to dark for a family dinner. My chicken was over cooked and the Shepard’s pie was more potato than meat or vegetable. Not the standard we come to expect.

The service was great. The food was okay. The deviled eggs were delicious, though they only give you three (which means you either half an egg or get two orders if two are dining). I got the salmon and was disappointed by the veggies - the carrots and brussel sprouts were pretty firm and seemed to be steamed. Roasted would've been a waaay better way to go. My husband got the bison burger and thought it was good. The fries were tasty.
