    Had a delightful lunch after touring the Biltmore Estate. We had made a reservation on Open Table for 2:15 (earliest available) but decided to stop in at 1:30 just to see if there was an opening and they seated us right away, which was wonderful. Our server Ariel was so sweet and accommodating. Being a former stable on the Biltmore, the ambiance there was very nice. Would recommend

    We were looking for gluten free options and hit the jackpot with this restaurant! All six of us (one gluten free eater) had amazing meals!! Four in our party enjoyed the Roasted chicken plate, one had the smash burger (huge), and the other person had the bbq sampler platter. Everyone finished their meals completely! Service was great too! Overall a wonderful choice for a late lunch. Highly recommend. As an added note: the strawberry mules was also delicious.

    My husband and I enjoyed our lunch at the Stable Cafe. Our server was very attentive. I ordered the barbecue sandwich with French fries. The portion was large but the barbecue and French fries were delicious. My husband had the meat loaf sandwich special with French fries. He also enjoyed his sandwich. I highly recommend the Stable Cafe if you are doing a tour of the house then the Chihuly exhibit or gardens.

    The ambiance was amazing. The food was mediocre and the prices were steep for what you got.

    Excellent choice for lunch after touring the Biltmore House. Loved sitting in an old horse stall and it was surprisingly quiet for being so busy. Lots of choices on the menu. Burger was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Loved the red sangria. Highly recommend

    It was lovely lunch. Food was very well prepared and very tasty. Service was very well done by Nicole. The equality vs price was excellent. The renovated Stable for a restaurant made for a unique and enjoyable venue.

    We checked in for our 2pm reservation at 1:55 and were told that we'd get a text when our table was ready. At 2:20pm I checked with the hostess again and they were confused about what time it was (thought it was 1pm), and didn't have a table for us. We waited another 5 minutes or so and were finally seated. Waited quite a while for our server (she was great when she finally came over). Placed order for drinks and food immediately and took forever for drinks even come, and food took forever also. Food itself was a 5/10. We ended up in a huge rush trying to make our house tour at 3:30. As mentioned, our server was great and gave us a card in case they gave us any issues for being late to our tour. Next time we come, we'll pack a lunch to avoid on-site dining options.

    The pork barbeque was delicious. Love the venue. It was close to the Biltmore house so we finished the tour and went straight to the restaurant. Great location!

    Lunch choices were varied and balanced. We had the chicken salad sandwich served on a croissant and the pulled pork sandwich on the brioche bun. Both were served with French fries. The portions were large and the flavors were balanced. We had a medium and spicy bloody Mary and I would recommend the spicy one if you like a little spice. We had the lemon blackberry shortcake and the red velvet cake for desert. Both were unique and delicious. The piece of red velvet cake was huge. The stables Cafe was a great venue and won't disappoint. Donna was our waitree and was very attentive and her timing was impeccable. I would recommend reservations, but I do think they sometimes do have room for walk ins. Highly recommend.
