    We dined at Cedric’s during our visit to the Biltmore. Chris was our server both times. He is an excellent server, fun, personable and very professional! Food was good. At lunch we had the pub burger which was very good. At dinner, we had the Chef’s steak special, flat iron steak which was tender and very flavorful. Garlic mash were good also. We sat outside in the enclosed patio. The patio is nice but would like cushions on the wooden slat chairs! 😄 We will definitely return to Cedric’s and ask for Chris!!

    Beware, although Shepherds Pie is what pops up immediately when looking at Cedric’s menu, it is NOT served after lunch. Why not?! This was the whole reason we chose Cedric’s. We went for my fiancé’s birthday, noted that in our reservation, even mentioned it at least twice to our server, yet his birthday went in acknowledged. Why bother asking when making the reservation??? As Shepherd’s Pie was not an option, we had the fish & chips…which was horrible!! Morton’s frozen fish & Ore Ida fries would have been an upgrade. Could taste freezer burn…yuk!! Definitely not a good reflection of the Vanderbilt name on Biltmore property.

    Absolutely beautiful Tavern that didn't come anywhwee close to meeting expectations. I chose the restaurant, the only one we had time to visit during our brief overnight stay based on the unique menu items. In particular, we were excited to try the pork pie. The concept is wonderful but the execution led to a series of letdowns while visiting. We expected chunks of pork, bacon and ham in a fresh pretzel emcasement baaed kn the description. Instead we got a tiny muffin appearance appetizer (for $16) of inedible dry ground meat with an awful aftertaste, in an almost as dry bread shell. Honestly, the worst thing I've ordered in a restaurant in many years. I wish I could say that the fish and chips and burger were better, but unfortunately not. The fish was a high quality cut that can only be described as tasteless and no amount of salt or tarter sauce (which resemembles homemade thousand sland dressing) would help. The burger was also dry with no flavor. There was one shining light, the Bangers and Mash was spot on, "perfect" best sums up the dish. It was a though it came from a different restaurant than all of the other food. The ambiance George Vanderbilt's dog, Cedric, as its main focus is worth the visit but it would take a lot for our family to try it again.

    Cedric's is always a hit with my friends and I. If you have a choice to eat anywhere at Biltmore, this is the place to eat. We've eaten at every restaurant at Biltmore and are most impressed with Cedric's. And I think their menu also changes with the seasons, so they'll always have something new!

    The service was good. However, they had an overpriced menu with no appealing options. The ambiance is that of an Irish pub but they had very limited casual “pub fare” options.

    We are annual pass holders at Biltmore and have been to Cedrics many times and always come back because the food is usually excellent. Last night we ate there again before the candlelight tour. The food was really disappointing for me and my husband. We both ordered the same special, the stack burger. The thin double patties were overdone (not at all tender) and the fries were wet with garlic and we couldn’t eat them because there was only garlic taste, no potato to be tasted. Very disappointing for a special meal before a special evening. And the price was unreasonable for a burger special. On the other hand, our friends had the fish and chips and they couldn’t stop raving how good it was. We have had the fish and chips before and it is excellent.

    Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and service at Cedric’s. The signature hot toddy was a perfect warm up after coming in from the cold. My Biltmore sourced NY strip was tender, accurately cooked and with a bernaise sauce that complimented the steak perfectly. My son had perfectly cooked fish and chips which he loved. Our dessert of mousse layered brownie was plenty for us to share and for a modest up charge they added a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the scoop of peppermint that came with the dessert. The peppermint ice cream was so delicious I was happy to have it for myself! Our server was lovely and was able to make good suggestions to my son to help him pick out his beer flight! We were also impressed that two different managers came by to see the if we needed anything and asked how our evening was going. We left feeling completely satisfied and in a great mood to tour the “big house” in its Christmas splendor! We were thankful for the experience and definitely plan a return.

    We had not eaten at Cedric's since prior to 2020 and were anxious to get back there to enjoy one of our favorite restaurants. It was as good as we remembered. The staff were all super nice and helpful. Our server Olivia was excellent. We both had the fish and chips which is our favorite dish on the menu. We literally felt that we were in the UK having these fish and chips. We were even given Heinz malt vinegar for the chips. When we requested a vegetable on one of the plates instead of french fries, our server was happy to offer several alternatives to us. We enjoyed a glass of Biltmore Cabernet which was delicious. At the end of the meal we split the pumpkin spice creme brulee which was lovely. Highly recommend.

We had the Cream of Mushroom soup (wow!!), I had the Wagu burger special and crispy fries (delicious!!), and my hubby had the Chefs cut steak (so savory!!). We went all out, so for desert I had the pumpkin spice Creme brûlée and hubby had the Chocolate Triple mousse… oh my!!! Definitely make this a visit if you go to the Village at Biltmore Estate!
