Cedricks is fantastic ! We have always had good service and great food. The only negative is that they only offer one hard cider choice. I'm not a beer person like my husband, but I do love cider. North Carolina has so many good ciders, it's a shame not to offer more of the local ciders.

Cedric’s Tavern offers a really good shepherd’s pie. It is served very hot, so be careful! My daughter had a daily special - seafood and pasta - which she thoroughly enjoyed. We don’t know how they make their crusty rolls or season their butter, but they are delicious!

We each ordered sandwiches- the daily special, salmon burger and a Reuben. The salmon was soggy with mayonnaise and poorly flavored while the Reuben was better but needed more sauerkraut. The french fries were mediocre- not crisp enough. The chocolate tart and the custard were both very good but did not make up for quality of the sandwiches. Due to Covid restrictions, capacity was restricted making it quiet but the ambiance was cold.

Cedric's never disappoints. We look forward to the pretzel rolls, and one of us usually has the Tavern salad or the pork chop, both excellent. The servers are a mix of genuinely friendly and briskly professional; it's always more enjoyable with a friendly server.

The food was excellent! My husband and I ordered the Bison burger and it was delicious. The tavern salad was perfect and the potato soup was so tasty. We really enjoyed our dinner here after our day touring the Biltmore House and gardens.

Our server (Adam) was fantastic. The appetizers (calamari and pretzel rolls) were great! Our burger was dry and didn’t have much flavor. Fish and chips was good, but could have used more seasoning. Reuben was great.
All in all, it was not a great experience for price we paid.

The food never disappoints; I particularly enjoy the Tavern salad and the pork chop. Servers seem to be either briskly professional or genuinely friendly. Our server was Paige Kimball and she was delightful.

The whole experience was good. My husband enjoyed his steak and potato. The grilled chicken added to the salad was very salty . Other than that, we enjoyed it! Everyone was very nice and accommodating.

Tavern may be in the name, but it’s no Tavern, it’s on the Biltmore Estate, so sounds good? No! Bleak, depressing place, food was poor. I had a bison burger, I was asked about temperature. I was expecting a good thick juicy burger However what arrived can best be described as a piece of warm cardboard. It seemed obvious to me, that this burger must have been cooked sometime ago to well-done and then reheated.
Sorry Cedric, your Tavern was poor.

Nice lunch stop after the Biltmore house before the wine tasting. Fish and chips and the ham sandwich with bourbon tomato jam (ask for extra!) were both great. Awesome local beer selection. Pricey but also expected for Biltmore

My husband and I traveled from Raleigh, NC, to celebrate our 50th anniversary. We had one of our dinners at Cedric's Tavern on the Biltmore properties. We met an old friend there and the tavern was perfect for visiting and celebrating. Two had the Grouper Special and said it was fantastic but a huge serving! I had the pork chop and it was also wonderful- cooked to perfection. The service was great- Paige was very attentive. Cedric's was a great choice.

Highly recommended for lunch. The trout dish was light, yet hearty and was the perfect temperature. Also, make sure to try the pickles, fantastic. Unfortunately, the carrot cake bread pudding was sold out for dessert, but the pear chai cake was amazing. Throughly enjoyed.

While the kitchen was a little slow, Cedric's has good food as expected. We will return in the future. (Note: the restaurant could use a little refurbishment on it wood railings and walls. Something they should have considered in the pandemic downturn of business as an opportunity to clean up.) Still overall a good experience.

Friends came with us and it was there first time to eat at Cedrics. Paige our server was most accommodating and took great care in making our experience wonderful. Also prior to arriving an accident occurred on highway so we called to say that we were running late. The young lady who was taking our call also was understanding and accommodating stating that our table would be waiting for arrival. When we arrived to the estate there were fire trucks coming into the estate which added to our wait time on arriving to Cedrics. We called once again in which the same lovely young lady at Cedrics answered the phone to say the same message that our table was ready and waiting for our arrival. Our guests were so impressed with the Cedric team and how they showed outstanding hospitality. The Joys.
