Very nice place on the grounds of the Village at Biltmore Estate. Very pleasing surroundings, both inside and out. We had drinks inside and dinner outside. Good food and great service.
Our service was outstanding but way overpriced. Food was bar food at fine dining place.
Arrived early for dinner reservation. Went to the bar. Service was excellent. Live music was one guy doing cover tunes of 60's and 70's. Enjoyed by all of us.
Dinner menu is diverse to have small meal or major dinner. I mentioned one of my guests is celebrating a birthday in two days. They brought 6 homemade bon bons on a plate with Happy Birthday written in chocolate. This was very appreciative because my guest doesn't want fuss and would have hated a piece of cake with a candle.
Meal was inovative but average. Restaurant has no soft surfaces and the noise level is bothersome. Waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. Not a bad dining experience; just average.
We enjoyed sitting out on the terrace looking at the landscaping while having pretzels and beer cheese dip, fish and chips, drinking their fine ales. Highly recommend! Split the food and was enough for lunch.
Went their to celebrate my birthday and stay on Biltmore Estate for Chihuly Show!
We decided to go here as one of our family weekend dinners since it’s on Biltmore Estate and because of its food selection. The food was great, as I’ve always found, as well as the server. However, for a Sunday night the noise level was very loud. Understanding it’s a “tavern” is one thing but trying to talk over a guy singing in a small, confined area is another, even if they could have turned the mic down a bit would help. We were thankful when he took his 15 minute break.
Food was beautifully presented, but a little "pricey".
live music was great...my husband and I split fish & chips & had pimento cheese dip for an appetizer. yummy! our server was so friendly & attentive. they even moved our reservation up 30 min!
The food and our server were outstanding, 5 stars. The hostess not so much.
Francisco was terrific . He could not have been more helpful
We always get the same thing. Fish and chips (are the Best!) Salad with a scotch egg and split it all. Enough for two people.
We were looking for good, casual dining and were happy with our choice of Cedric's; would recommend this location for lunch or dinner!
On our vacation to the Biltmore to see the Chihuly Exhibit! Our first night we ate at Cedric’s! The food and ambiance was delightful
Hostess was not very professional. We had a reservation and asked for outside patio seating and was told it was not available and then we were amazed to watch 2 - 3 tables sit idle for 45 minutes. Very rude.
Dining outside at Cedric's Tavern on Saturday night was amazing. The service and food was excellent. The menu has many options to choose from. We'll have to go back again to get something else next time. We sat outside so we could listen to the live music at Antler Hill Village - a stones throw from where we were sitting. We brought friends in after 5 with our passholder status and loved every minute of our evening.
My wife and I were at Biltmore for the Chihuly exhibit. We had lunch at Cedric's. We had the Heirloom Tomato Tart. It is easily the most creative dish I've seen in a long time. We will definitely be back.
Biltmore never disappoints. Took the kids 16 & 14 for a trip to Biltmore and we chose Cedric’s for lunch. We’ve eaten here a few times and it never disappoints. Kids had the bison burger and the turkey sandwich with fries and chips and I had the pork burger which they had no problem accommodating the no bun request. Everything was delicious. One of my favorite things is the appetizer pickles which we all enjoyed. It is pricier than eating off the estate, but to enjoy food that comes from their lands is special.
There are many good restaurants on property at the Biltmore but this is not one. The server didn't write down any of our order, which usually is a sign of good service, however my order was wrong when it arrived, getting it fixed took way too much time considering we were a table of 4 and everyone else was indulging in their appetizers and I was waiting for a correction. Basically told when asked that the server hadn't had time to go back to the kitchen. 3 out of 4 main courses were not cooked as ordered, 2 steaks ordered medium came out well done and 1 salmon ordered med rare came out med. I wonder why you ask how I want my food prepared if you are only going to fix it one way. In the end, drinks were comped and the incorrect appetizer was comped.
Excellent service and food. Guitarist played very nice music. Totally enjoyable experience. It was our anniversary and we were served a special desert.
Overall, the food was good. My husband ordered steak which was very good. I ordered I ordered the pan seared trout. The citrus in the sauce overpowered the dish and made the fish soggy, not crisp. We would return, but would not recommend the trout.
I’m gone To Cedric’s several times over the years, I usually love it. The rolls were not for fresh and the Bison Burger was not great either. Very disappointing.
We were at the Biltmore Inn for an overnight Biltmore experience. I had seen good reviews for Cedric’s. It looked like a cute place too. I made reservations a few days before and when we arrived on time I requested an outdoor table. I was told by the hostess that we’d have to wait 1/2 hr.to 40 minutes more because there was a waiting list. We chose not to wait and we were seated at a nice table by the window. From the window we could see that there were 2 or more empty tables. One was occupied in 1/2 hr but the other was left empty. Hmmmm? The inside of the restaurant was very noisy. It was a beautiful evening outside and lots quieter. Wonder why we couldn’t sit outside.
My shepherd’s pie was too salty! My husband’s burger was fine. And we liked the pickles.
Next time we’ll try The Bistro.

I made a reservation in which I described our post wedding dinner 48 years ago. The staff went out of their way to make a dessert complete with Champagne which was beautiful. The live musician played our song also which was very nice! We would recommend Cedric's Tavern for any special occasion. It was a little noisy as others were celebrating too, even up in the back area.
Cedric's was great from start to finish, excellent staff and service, delicious food and beer. The fish and Chips is my favorite, cooked perfectly crisp. I highly recommend!
Food and service was very good. However, the noise level was extremely high and was very difficult to hear friends at our table!
Very good food
Cedric’s is a great place for upscale pub fare on the beautiful grounds of the Biltmore Estate. Dog friendly on the patio, and exceptional service.
The experience started out top notch right when we walked in the door. The hostess was extremely pleasant and let us know that we could be seated outside with a five minute wait. She also proceeded to tell us a bit about how the restaurant got its name and some of the history. We were then seated on the patio. Our server, Tyler, was a very friendly individual who knew a lot about the menu and was able to share good information.
We ordered the Reuben sandwich and the fish and chips. Both were excellent. The fish and chips rivaled anything I have had in England. We also had their specialty pickles that all diners get at the beginning of the meal. They are excellent. I highly recommend.
While a bit pricey, the food was excellent and the staff was very good. And we got a marvelous tray of chocolate truffles as an anniversary gift. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Biltmore.
I really enjoyed the meals, especially the second day we ate here. Both servers were really nice. I like the pork burger and fish and chips.
Went for a trip with an out of town girlfriend who had never been to Biltmore. Our kids got us a night at the Inn and we chose Cedrics for dinner since it was casual dress and with music. Made reservation over 2 weeks in advance and earliest available was 7:30 which worked out fine. During our short wait, we enjoyed being outside with the music and watching the people on the green. Service inside was extremely attentive. Food was great, we needed something to tide us over until dinner and the pimento cheese is fabulous. We both had trout and ate it all. All full sevice restaurants at Biltmore are expensive so plan ahead! We did figure out we could have eaten the pimento cheese and gotten salads if we wanted to conserve.
Cedric’s is always good for food when visiting Biltmore. Service is great.
Servic was excellent. The cheese and english muffin with the tuna melt were both hard.
The bison burger does not need bacon. The bacon takes away from healthy eating.
Food was just average ., noise level was loud so could not hold a conversation . Paying for the location.
We had dinner reservations and earlier in the day I stopped by the restaurant to ask if we could be seated at an outside table at dinner. I was told the outside tables were for walk ins and were not reserved. I was told I could request an outside table when we arrived and if one was available we could switch to outside. Unfortunately, when we arrived for our reservation, there were no outside tables available and we were told there would be a 30 minute wait. We opted to eat indoors rather than wait that long. The dining room was very busy and noisy. We did not like the atmosphere. We like to be able to talk at dinner and the noise and music made that difficult. Service was slow throughout our meal. The Bison burger and the local trout dish were both good when they finally arrived. While staying at the Inn at Biltmore, we ate also ate in The Dining Room and The Bistro and had far better experiences at both places. Cedric’s may be a better place to have lunch than dinner.
We’ve eaten at Cedric’s many times during our stay in Asheville on vacation. It really is excellent. The food is always really good and expertly prepared. And the staff is generally really friendly! We would recommend this restaurant to our friends, for sure! 👍
Food and service were outstanding! I am GF and they had many delicious options and the server was very knowledgeable.
This was a great place to eat with friends or as a romantic date. The live music was outstanding. The food was delicious. Our waiter was so helpful and attentive. I would absolutely go back again.
We were at Biltmore to see the Chihuly Exhibit and wanted to avoid the heat of the afternoon. We enjoyed looking around and were ready for theAC and luch by 12.30. Cedirc’s was a good choice.
