    We loved Cedric's Tavern! First time dining here and it surpassed our expectations! Menu had lots of choices. We loved our pretzel bread rolls and herbed butter! My chicken dish was excellent and my husband raved about his fish and chips. Malt vinegar was offered to add to this authentic dish. We will be back!

    Cedric's is a favorite restaurant of ours at the Biltmore Estate. It did not live up to its past performance today. Arrived at 12:30 for a 12:45 reservation. Seated promptly. Nice Server. Order placed, etc. at 1:00 we were told food would be out shortly. At 1:10 still no food. At 1:15 food brought out by a manager who was apologetic. (no explanation). My husband's salmon was perfectly cooked. My roast beef sandwich was overcooked meat, and not as full of a sandwich as I was expecting. (by the way, the pickles are awesome and they were as good as always today). With out asking, we were comped our drinks and our pickles. But still something weird went on with our meal, as a table seated at 1:00 got their food about the same time as us. We will return as we love their menu. Hope next time things go better.

    The special bloody mary drink you featured was way too spicy and overdone. A simple drink would have been more enjoyable. And the oily taste of the fish and chips, although a very popular dish made it it too fishy tasting. The fish and chips at Jettie Rea's, an excellent fish restaurant on Charlotte St is far superior. My friend's meatloaf portion was smaller than the one she had about three months ago when we ate lunch at Cedrick's. Dining options on The Biltmore Estate are diminishing and this is disappointing, but the grounds around Cedrick's are spectacularly planted.

    The food was wonderful, and I loved getting to know about Cedric. Our waitress was so attentive, and when our 3 year old had a brief meltdown after the long drive in, a hostess brought her a mini Cedric stuffed animal to soothe her (for free). We were grateful for such kind service!

    We had a very pleasant dining experience. Lovely host and we were seated quickly as we had a reservation. The Bacon/Beer Almonds appetizer is very good and we would highly recommend. I had the shrimp roll and my husband had the wings. Both were very good. Our server was very intuitive and met all of our needs. We also loved looking at all of the photos and the 33” collar that belonged to Cedric, the beloved St. Bernard of the Vanderbilts. A very pleasant experience.

    Went specifically for the grilled cheese which I saw on the internet. I was told it's only a lunch item. Paid $16 for shrimp toast. A piece of bread with some kind of cheese and a bunch of tiny shrimp. Tasted ok but not worth the price. Also had the jack and coke wings which were good despite being very messy and not being given extra napkins.

    Flavors were good but meal didn’t wow us. Pretzel bites were cold. Bison burger was ordered medium and had no pink inside. They offer to call ok again, which I declined, so they comped a dessert. The blackberry cake (almond cake with blackberry compote filling) with lychee ice was excellent. The only recommendation is to remove the yuzu cream on top, it was too sour.

    Very friendly staff, and the food was amazing. Our waiter Tyler was very knowledgeable of the menu, and the porkchop that he recommended was one of the best pork chop that I have ever had. He also commented on how it was one of the biggest one he has have ever seen plated. My wife got the fish and chips and that very delicious too.. Would defiantly go back!

    We ate outside and had excellent service from “Chris” who even provided a dessert in recognition of our anniversary. As with all of the Biltmore restaurants the prices have increased and some things are now not available-their amazing pickles in jars for purchase, great pretzel rolls that were complimentary with dinner and the Cedric’s beers. My husband had fish & chips and I had Tavern salad with salmon-both were very good.

    Fish and chips were dry and fishy tasting. The French fries were cold and not good. My Bison burger came with the special sauce and that’s it, very plain for a $25 dollar burger. Maybe some Swiss cheese, sautéed onions and a side of pickles would have been good on the burger. However we enjoyed the pretzel bites appetizer.

    Food and service was excellent. Noise level was terrible but I am not sure what the restaurant can do about it. A family with four children were dining and the parents did not supervise them. Allowed them to get up and run around the restaurant and scream while others were dining. It is a family friendly restaurant but these guests took advantage of family friendly in my opinion.

    Cedrics is always a great place to dine but remember patio seating allows pets (dogs). I've never encountered a problem but I choose to be seated away from dogs when dining.

    Cedric’s is a fun tavern with good food. The fish and chips were excellent as were our drinks and dessert Tom was our server and he did an outstanding job taking care of us. Unfortunately other guests made this experience less enjoyable. We were shocked by children yelling and jumping around at neighboring tables. The couple next to us was either very drunk or using some other substance; they knocked glasses off the table and repeatedly harassed their sever.
