My husband had the pork chop dinner and says it was the best pork chop he’s ever had...he also really liked the potato and fried green beans. I had the lobster roll which was okay with chips that tasted over fried.

The food was great - I had a cheeseburger and my husband had the bison burger. Both were delicious. The BBQ on the bison burger was a bit too much for our taste but not bad. The BBQ fries were amazing! We would go again.

We started with the amazingly yummy deviled eggs... unusually good! The salad was one of the best I’ve ever had as the greens were super crisp and fresh. We recommended Cedric’s to everyone we saw during our time in the Village!

Just one criticism- I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu. Food was good, and the service very good.

We visited Cedrics a few years ago and the fish and chips were wonderful. The last 2 times we have visited I ordered the fish and chips the fish has been very dry and the fries tasted like they were cooked hours before and maybe sat under a heat lamp. Very disappointed in the food. But every thing else was fantastic.

Environment is what you would expect for a pub on a square. Lively conversations, musicians, kids. The food we had was good, prices reasonable for the location, and service was good. One of our preferred places to eat at the Biltmore Estate for lunch. We made reservations one day to sit inside, walked up and sat on the patio the other day. Recommend reservations on the weekends or peak seasons.

The food was good and the singer outstanding. As for the rest, not so good. The ambience was very loud for most of the time, with a group of six screaming women at the having a fight. Even when they made up, they were still screaming. The musician gave up at one point.
But the worst part was their handling of my wife's soy allergy. This is not a "fun" allergy - if she comes into contact with soy, her face, mouth and tongue swell up. This had been explained on the booking notes and again when we arrived. My wife chose a calamari appetizer which had been pronounced to be soy-free. When it arrived, it had an aioli source that had been made with mayonnaise. Since most commercial mayo contains soy, we asked what type of mayo? The answer was Duke's (NC's favorite). Does it contain soy? we asked. "No" was the definitive reply. I looked up the ingredients online and there it was - the first listed ingredient: soybean oil. The question had be now been asked three times, and three times the kitchen had said no. The chef then came out with a garbled explanation of why this should be that notably did not contain an apology. He then made up a soy-free version.
I should say that the server was mortified and apologized again and again; she also took the appetizer off the final bill.
So, beware: if you have an allergy, do not go there!!!

Right in the heart of Antler VIllage, great live music that was not so loud you couldn't think. Our server was awesome! He did not hover but was there when needed. Great Sangria and wine. Our dessert chocolates came on a plate that read, Happy Anniversary, written in cursive chocolate! Yes, it was our anniversary. The food was also very good!

We had a delightful experience at Cedric's Tavern on our first evening at the Biltmore Estate. Although we were a little early for our reservations we were seated promptly. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and even brought my husband a special dessert since we were celebrating his birthday. It was a fine pub experience.

Our waiter was nice but our food server was completely disinterested in his job. Food was marginal. Over cooked seafood and yesterdays potatoes “at gratin” reheated in the microwave.

Food was fantastic! We had soup of the day - a seafood mixture that was out of this world. I enjoyed the salmon while my husband had the red snapper. Our server was very attentive and made us feel special (we were celebrating our 40 th Anniversary)! Atmosphere was less formal than the Inn at the Biltmore, so we could enjoy checking out all the unique shops in the Village! Definitely would recommend Cedric’s Tavern!

First I am a pass holder at the biltmore and have been for many years now. We decided to eat at cedrics just on a Monday night June 17th, the tavern wasn’t busy at all. So we went in and wanted to sit inside away from the awful music that they had going and also it was hot outside.. and the two hostess were no help and extremely rude.. they definitely didn’t help accommodate us and they didn’t care if we went somewhere else.. just RUDE!! so we left and I got on open table and made a reservation and in 7 mins I walked back in with a reservation. And immediately sat down. So you would rather not fill tables and wait on reservations.. come on it’s a Monday not the weekend. You could have just accommodated us.. instead of upsetting my family and I. We will not return. Thank you

Why do they not accept pass holder discounts on Father’s Day when the creamery next door does.
