We visit Cedrics every time we come to Biltmore! Very good food and great friendly service. The pretzel rolls with butter are delicious. My mom and I both had the ribeye and they were both cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful!

Food was just ok. Over salted and generally not the same standard of the other places we tried on the Biltmore estate. The waitress was ok also, but gave us the check without asking if we’d like anything else and/or dessert. Wish I’d read the reviews before we tried it.

Nothing special about this place. Some people were nice some were not. Food is okay but way overpriced. You'd be better to go to downtown Asheville. Much better food, ambiance, drinks and value.

We return to Cedric's almost every time we go to the Biltmore Estate. The food is excellent and it is a little more laid-back than other dining options. Although it was raining we sat outside on the covered patio. Try the ham and cheese fondue, you won't be disappointed!

Cedric's is my favorite place to eat at Biltmore Estate. It is casual, but elegant. The food is always originally created to taste great and it is served with finesse. The selection of wines is excellent, too. I enjoyed Biltmore's Reisling which was delectable with the roast chicken, rice, sauce, carrots, and greens The meal was excellent.

Red snapper fish was excellent. Granddaughter tried bus in burger for first time and loved it. We ate on patio because it was cooler outside than inside. Our waitress was awesome! Service perfect. My granddaughter and I enjoyed a two hour dinner. We had a large family across from us which was fine but their barking dog was annoying! Highly recommend Cedric's!

We enjoyed dinner at Cedrics Saturday night with family, including young grandchildren. Our waiter, Chris, was fabulous. He took the children's orders first while they colored and did word search in the several page booklet that Cedrics gave them upon arrival. They were occupied our entire dinner. And, speaking of dinner - it was excellent. I had the chicken and it was the best chicken that I have eaten. Other family members had the fish and chips - which was about the entire fish, pork chops and fish. The pretzel rolls and mustard butter were delicious! We'll be back. Cedrics is one of our many favorite restaurants at the Biltmore.

The service is the best thing about the evening - the service and the Scotch Egg! Despite the fact we had asked for seating on the patio in our reservation and the fact that there were empty tables there, we were denied seating there. That was very disappointing as the inside was quite loud. We were therefore disappointed.

I honestly expected more while dining at Biltmore. The food was good, but not as good as it should have been for the price. I appreciate good food and fine dining, but this was trying to be something that it wasn't. We actually did not dine on the premises again after this first night. Again, it wasn't bad! The food was actually very good, just left something to be desired.

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last week at Cedric’s Tavern. With a reservation, we were seated immediately and given a complimentary glass of champagne. It was fairly crowded, but not slammed. The service was a little slow, however our server was pleasant, and made good recommendations.
The place was quite warm, and uncomfortable.
The food was good. The fish was cooked well, but I did not care for the sauce. There is nothing wrong with a good tartar sauce, when you try to make it fancy sometimes you make it worse.
My husband loved his meal of ribeye, potatoes and creamed broccoli casserole.
Prices are quite high ($24 for a big fish fillet, fries & slaw), but it was not unexpected. And it’s Biltmore for Pete’s sake.

My daughter treated me to a birthday lunch at Cedric's. We had the heirloom tomato sandwich and the faro salad. WONDERFUL and fresh....just an amazing presentation and taste. At the end, the staff brought me complimentary truffles to celebrate my day...which was such a nice touch. Very personable staff, nice atmosphere and a good place to rest up to go over to the wine tasting area which is only about two buildings away.

We just got married on May 25. Spent a well planned honeymoon at the Biltmore Estate.

Husband: Never in my life have I enjoyed such five star royalty treatment at a resort as that provided by The Biltmore. God has blessed my Family to even be a part of such exemplary stewardship.
However, I would be remiss if I failed to share the few ideas and questions I have from the experience.

1) What if you had someone lead a well trained St. Bernard around and promote Cedrick's Brown Ale?
2) Why is there not a restroom stop on the Legacy tour? 90 minutes? 24 seniors on a bus...?
3) You need more lawn chairs on the sunset view veranda at The Inn. Guests compete for them at sunset.
4) Where are the cats?
5) You need a walkie talkie policy. Several of your employees and contractors use commonly sold walkie talkies on public frequencies. I brought my walkie talkies to keep up with my family, and the cross transmissions made that difficult.

Wife: This was our second time coming, because of the magnificence of The Biltmore House, this is where we chose to spend our honeymoon. Such a wonderful place! However some things to disappoint...
1) There were no lion gifts to be found! I was excited to shop after visiting the first time and it seemed like there was something lost. Being the estate that it was, how about some miniature castle sculptures, lions please, and cool chess sets for example. We ended up buying wine (which your wine is fabulous!) but would have spent a bunch more if there were more conversational pieces to purchase rather than soaps and flowered dishware I can get anywhere. I understand that but add some flavor of your selections. Lastly, a nightly tour of all the nooks and crannies in the castle, (that's what it is to me, a castle that I cant get enough of!) This may be asking too much but the castle at night by lantern light would be an amazing experience. Thankyou for your horses being so well loved. It showed! We will be back.

We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time. The hostess abruptly advised us that it would be a 45 minute wait to eat on the patio and we could be seated immediately inside. The interaction was hurried and not friendly. Our waitress was OK but it seemed that all interactions took exceptionally long from ordering and receiving drinks, then food, and finally the bill. The noise was much to bar like.

We have eaten here with out of town guests many times and have enjoyed the experience despite the inflated prices. This time the $25 deep fried fish was just too much!

Our food took a long time to arrive and it wasn't very good. I had a burger for my lunch which was supposed to be medium and was like shoe leather. The fries were soggy and all that for a mere $18.00. My companion did not better with a tomato sandwich which was unappetizing. Disappointing all around

Wonderful food and great service. We were entertaining out of town family with severe food allergies and the menu was very helpful with gluten and dairy items clearly marked, and the server was knowledgeable about the offerings. This made our meal so much more relaxed and pleasant than it might have been. The tomato sandwiches got rave reviews and the fish and chips were delicious. The surprise of the meal, however, was the Flat Rock semi-tart blackberry cider. Terrific!

I expected higher quality entrees from Cedric's Tavern, even if it was lunch. Perhaps we all should have ordered the shepherd's pie, which one member of our party said was excellent. But on a hot May afternoon, not many want shepherd's pie. Although the Cedric's pickles and deviled eggs were delicious, I ordered the special of the day--a Cuban sandwich--which was dry.

Music was so loud couldn’t carry conversation. The food options are so unrelatable and unidentifiable. For the price, there needs to be better options. That salad was not very good at all. Who eats that’s stuff?

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Cedric’s on the Biltmore Estate for our anniversary. Our server was impeccable the entire evening. She began by offering both of us a complimentary glass of champagne. She continued through the evening by knowing just when we needed something and didn’t bother us when we were enjoying our meal and each other. The meal could not have been better. The menu has changed somewhat since our last visit. We both had the sea bass and it was done to perfection. We finished the evening with Creme Brûlée which was beautifully presented including “Happy Anniversary” written in chocolate. What a wonderful evening!

My husband and I always love eating here. Our first visit we both got the Bison Burger and it’s is delicious! On our second visit I got the ribeye and my husband got the lobster roll. Both meals were hardy and delicious. The ribeye was super tender and his lobster roll was stuffed to the brim. We enjoy the atmosphere and the decor as well.
