Biltmore Bar & Grill
The Biltmore Bar & Grille is a modern American restaurant in Newton, MA with a longstanding history. No corporate restaurant chain or Hollywood set designer could ever recreate The Biltmore Vibe.
In 1914, the Biltmore opened and served up breakfast and brew at 7AM for the overnight crews from nearby factories. It came with a 4 lane basement bowling alley that was a local hangout for decades.
There was talk of a speakeasy during prohibition. The Biltmore was across the street from a regional rail stop and often hosted private events for dignitaries, politicians and celebrities.
Much of original brick front and interior has remained the same over the many reincarnations of this legendary bar. The original old growth wood flooring has stood up to many timeless celebrations as well. Celebrating this neighborhood legend while serving up fresh new takes on classic dishes and drinks is what The Biltmore is all about.

There are two patios here. One is with picnic tables built on the parking lot. The other is with tables of 4, inbetween two brick buildings. a little more private, about 8 tables here. Not many chance for people to be walking through. There are overhead heaters in this area.
The food was wonderful! Service was great! Enjoyed being back at such a fun spot!
Food was great! We sat at the bar and bartender was very attentive ! Food was out very quickly!
We weren’t rushed to leave.
A pleasant evening out!
The service was amazing, we felt very safe and seperated from the other tables.
The food was amazing!!!!!
Friendly and efficient service
Hm. Food was extremely disappointing. There was also a spider climbing in the side of the table, ew... the servers were very nice and welcoming. I also noted that they played a Spanish song which was awesome!
Very good pub food. Menu during pandemic more limited. Great friendly service.
Awesome neighborhood pub with great food and a couple great draft beers
COVID perhaps but far from what it used to be.
I was visiting the Newton area and needed to find a place for beer, apps and the Bruins. I could not have found a better place. I'll be back!
Great restaurant, very friendly server. Would go again for sure.
It was a disappointing experience all around. We try support local restaurants as much as possible but I will not be going back anytime soon. I saw my waitress once to take my order and that was it - food was slow to come out, no one checked on us, and I had to ask the host to get me the check. It was also cold in there, and just not enjoyable. The weekends need better staffing levels.
Brunch at the Biltmore was great. We had the first reservation at 11:30am and had a great brunch. We will be back for dinner and drinks sooner rather than later. The Biltmore never disappoints.
We were looking for a local heated outdoor patio for dining, we're not quite comfortable with indoor dining just yet and the Biltmore was fabulous! Good food and drinks. Loved the firepits on the patio. Our server Jenna was the best! We will be back.
Great food great service! Would definitely go again.
Jenna was fantastic. Great drinks, fantastic food. My fiancé and I already booked our next reservation.
showed up on time for reservation, did not want high tops, and when we asked for floor level table the hostess snapped "you have an hour and 15 minutes, we have lots of reservations tonight." LOL, we had a reservation. Thankfully our server Seth made up for her lack of customer service and we enjoyed the rest of our time there thanks to him.
Food was great, can't go wrong with Popcorn Chicken and the fried Pickles. Peppercorn filet was fantastic. The food and people like Seth will bring us back.
Good food, great service and a cozy ambience. Great spot!
Sat “outdoors” in the covered alley. Service and food were good. There are heaters and fire pits that the hostess turned on for us. Enjoyed our time.
Sat in the outdoor heated patio, it was a little cold but I was still able to eat safely outside during winter which was great! The staff was so so nice and really enjoyable
Service was pleasant and food was good.
Waitress was great
Good food and service.
Had brunch at the bar - good food, good convo, good music, great service!
Favorite neighborhood restaurant!
Great experience ! Cool atmosphere , great server and even better food. Can’t wait to return.
Very accommodating! We sat outside in the alley way which was warm with the large outside heaters and the roof they must have added. Our waitress was fantastic, food was excellent and my friends and I felt comfortable and safe! We will be back again for the beef stew and fried pickles yum!
Amazing time, Superb customer service, Outstanding food. Good drinks. The Biltmore Bar & Grill We'll back & We'll definitely recommend it time & time again ...
We had Sunday brunch on the patio. It had heater so it was comfortable enough. The area was enclosed so can't say it felt any safer than indoor dining. They let us spend a lot of time at our table which was nice.
This is a great neighborhood place, everything is good. I had a big plate of standard breakfast fare, very filling and a bloody Mary.
You won't be impressed but you also won't be disappointed.
Always great and the staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the service is great!
Would go again! As long as outdoor seating available
We dined inside for the first time since March. The staff, Jenna and Katie, went out of their way to ensure we felt comfortable and safe. We can highly recommend the fried shrimp dinner, 6 large butterfly shrimp nicely fried served with cole slaw. Also the steak and cheese sandwich. This sandwich will easily compete with the best of a Philly cheesesteak. And of course the Biltmore burger with waffle fries is A+. Nice draft beer list. Restaurant also has nice outdoor seating. We look forward to returning.
Biltmore has two outside dining patios. One, immediately behind, is charming and spacious. The other, next to the restaurant in the alley is small and dim. We were a family of 4 at a table for 2, stuffed into a dark corner. Really disappointing given the different experiences/locations. Food was slow, items were forgotten/missing. We were looking forward to the Biltmore but will likely skip in the future.
Excellent all around.
We would return for the food as that was excellent. Unfortunately, as others have mentioned, the service was slow and it wasn't packed. We saw the other server more than we saw our server. Trivia was fun and helped to pass the very long wait.
Table was ready on time and well-spaced in this time of CoronaCircus. Waitress was very attentive and patient while learning of one diner's acute food allergies. A great place to get together with friends for a meal and some adult beverages.
Service was very friendly and attentive. Kitchen was a little slow due to having only cook on duty, but food was great. Outdoor patio is lovely, but the awning was broken and would not extend, so the sun was quite strong for the shade-lovers.
Food was really good. The service was great. Although our waitress, Jenna, was very busy, she made all efforts to make us as happy and comfortable as possible. Would come back again just to be waited on by her! Great meal, great service, great night!
Always very pleasant and consistently good. Love their al fresco dining.
outdoor dining - warm night so no heater needed. service was friendly. food not so great - veggies overcooked, steak tips tough.
