We made a reservation for our family of 6 at the Stable Cafe. It was awesome. We purchased two of the Stable Cafe samplers for 4 adults. It was more food than all four adults and 2 grandchildren could eat! Delicious and reasonably priced!

The restaurant is right outside of the Biltmore House. We toured part of the house, went to eat and went back to the house to finish the tour.

Great place to eat with small children. We loved the ambience and the kids loved the fact it was originally a stable! The service was excellent. We would definitely eat there again and highly recommend going there!

Another way to experience life at Biltmore is lunch in The Stables. (The horses had great digs) The wait staff accommodates your timing and can get you out quickly or let you linger. Generous portions and noise level was surprisingly low for a large space.

My family visited on Memorial Day. There was no wait, the service was quick, the server was pleasant, and the food was delicious. Our four children loved seeing the old stables of the Biltmore House, and they are every bite of their food. Everything was delightful! We can’t wait to visit again.

Was not allowed to use my Biltmore Annual Pass due to it being a "major holiday" for lunch discount. This was proven untrue after talking to a supervisor later in the day.

The Stable Cafe shines with its convenience to the Biltmore House and the phenomenal service that the staff provides. They sat us early as we arrived 30 minutes before our reservation. The food was really good. I gave it a Fair for value because you are uncharged for the convenience of eating on the estate, but it is worth it not to have to take the time to leave and then have to wait in line to come back in.

We enjoyed our lunch at the Stable Cafe after our self guided tour of the Biltmore. The atmosphere was different(it used to be the horse stables) & the food was excellent. I had the paprika rubbed chicken breast, which was tasty & tender. My husband had the pulled pork, also excellent. Service was good. My only issue was that our seats were over an air conditioning vent do it was cold.

Delicious food and superb service in a very busy restaurant! The setting is fabulous - it is inside what was once the Vanderbilts' mahogany-stalled stables with the carriages stored overhead. Amazing how well it works as a lunch place now. It is noisy though.

Request a booth (although NOT the one next to kitchen) to reduce noise.
Quality/taste of food (burgers and pulled pork very dry and forgettable) has been consistently declining over the last year.
Given the high volume of diners the service is very efficient.

Decent experience. Nice server, and very cool setting. I had a sampler that included ribs, pork, chicken, beans, and corn. The favors of the food was pretty good, but it was very very dry. Loved the smokiness of the ribs, but it was bone dry, like it'd been in a warmer for while. The corn was also extremely overcooked. I didn't bring it up to our server because we were pressed for time. Also, I am an annual pass holder, and would have liked to use my discount, and I forgot it, but the server should have asked. Not a huge deal, but worth noting. Each place I purchased throughout the property asked for it. Overall, I'm not a person who tries a place once. I'll give it another go at some point, and hopefully this can improve.
