Date day with my wife. Great food. Only issue was we had to push issue with reservation as initially they would not honor our reservation. With some pushing the issue was resolved.

Very good food and service. Have outstanding gluten free food options. Had the “feast for two” pulled pork, brisket and half a chicken with two sides. Filled us up and got to take half of it home for supper. 👍🏻

Delicious food at reasonable prices, good drinks, friendly server. We were seated in a “stalled” area so noise level was low enough for conversation. We had reservations and were seated within 5 minutes of our appointed time.

Adorable restaurant - worth the visit. Housed in old stables, ask for a booth. Food was healthy and fresh, didn’t love all the spices... might be best to choose more of the authentic North Carolina food rather than the salads. Though the chicken salad was very tasty. Reservations highly recommended gets crowded around lunchtime..

The Stables did not disappoint. We had reservations and we were seated immediately. Our server was very attentive and our food was delivered quickly. Everything was fresh and delicious. Wish we had saved room for dessert The apple cider is awesome!

My experience at the Stable Cafe was wonderful. I got the beef brisket sandwich which was tender and so tasty. I loved the barbeque sauce. Our server was so very attentive. My friend has an allergy to pepper and he went out of his way to assist her in selecting something that would fit her needs. He even got her a sample of something to see if she could eat it. I would highly recommend the Stable Cafe.

We ate upstairs and our experience was awesome! We had a nice quiet corner table and an excellent waiter who took good care of us. The smoked beef brisket sandwich on a Kaiser roll had a great taste and the meat was very tender. This came with fries and coleslaw. My wife had the shaved root vegetable salad and was very satisfied. The tea was good and tasty and our waiter kept our glasses full. Overall this was a very pleasant experience.

I was very pleased with the service and the food at the Stable Café. We made reservations and planned an early lunch. So glad we did, this place was busy. I ordered the baked chicken and it was delicious. So much to see at the Biltmore Estate, I would highly recommend making time to eat here.

You want people to enjoy your venue.
You need a profit....your prices are way out of line for what is delivered.
Your servers and back of house staff should not serve old food.
The bread was cheap and the coleslaw was not fresh.
I work front of house at a 5 star Country Club.
I would not have ever served pre-plated food that looked the way that Coleslaw did.

My son loved his chicken tenders and fries. The greatest thing was sitting inside of a horse stable!
I had the daily special. It was fresh and tasted amazing! Possible the best pickle slices I’ve ever had!
We loved the experience and will definitely eat there again!

Given its large size and the number of patrons we had fairly low expectations. But I am happy to say we were quite wrong. The staff was very friendly and the food was very good. They were very attentive to my husband's gluten free requirement and happily made adjustments. I would definitely go here again.

Arrived with high expectations and my only complaint was that I did not feel the food tasted as good as I expected. As a country boy raised on home grown vegetables, perhaps the choice of spices used were different from what I was accustomed to. Would I come back in the future? Absolutely.

Excellent Service at the cafe! Arrived a few minutes ahead of our reservation a DNA’s seated immediately. Our waitress was pro,pt and helpful, offering suggestions. Food was quick to arrive and very good. I had the corn chowder and my husband had the meaty stable platter. The fall pie sampler for dessert was outstanding!

On the first entree, the shrimp was stale, tasted of iodine. Also, there were only 4 shrimp. The pasta in the dish was cold.

On the second entree, the sampler plate had a lot of food, too much, but none of it very good. Better to have quality and an attractive plating.

Also, I was due a passholder's discount and didn't notice until we were gone that I didn't receive it.
It was an uncrowded time: no excuse for a rushed presentation or forgotten discount.

We have eaten here before with great experience and food. Planned a get-together at Biltmore House between friends from SC, TN, and IA. Our reservation was a bit late for our events of the day. We inquired, and they were most accommodating to move us up almost an hour. Our wait staff, Holly, was super! What fun we had visiting with her. The food and service were 5-star. Tip: order the blackberry iced tea, mixed half & half with unsweetened tea. Perfection! Half the calories, and not too syrupy sweet.

My husband and I walked in exhausted after doing 2-2hr tours of the house in very hot weather. I have many diet restrictions and loved the bison burger with fries, and I believe pickled onions...The Stable worked with my limited diet and the food was great. (The air conditioning was wonderful too.)

My chicken salad sandwich which was very good. Of course it was the most expensive chicken salad I have ever eaten but not surprising since it is on the Biltmore estate. My husbands pulled pork sandwich was not as great. It was on the dry side. Overall, it is a very neat place to visit and conveniently located if you are wanting to dine on the Biltmore estate and not pay a huge fortune .
