Our server was excellent, I wish i could remember his name to thank him. The sampler plate was delicious and plenty to share for 2people. They gave us a free dessert to celebrate our anniversary. Great place to get away from the crowd.

The menu was heavy on barbecue meals here, but that is just fine with us - and it was delicious! I couldn’t decide, so I had the sampler... pulled pork, chicken, and beef brisket with all the fixings. Plenty to share! We left full and happy! Next time I will give their burgers or Buffalo chicken sandwich a try - both looked delicious, also!

The historic and charming setting adjacent to the Biltmore mansion make this the most convenient spot for a meal during a visit. Food is good southern fare, heavy on the baked beans which are flavorful but overly sweet. The roast chicken is quite good, nicely seasoned and juicy. The pan pried trout is also very good. Vegetarian options are limited and the BBQ vegetable plate is not very satisfying. Reserve well in advance as it fills up fast.

Love this restaurant! The food is excellent and very unique in the way it is prepared. The wait staff is very friendly and professional and we didn't wait very long for our food to arrive after we ordered.
We also liked the wide selection of drinks available. Especially the Cedric's Ale on draft and the wines.

Food was pretty good. Was hoping for a little more smoke flavor in the bbq but it was ok. Wife’s salad was good and service was great.

We had the black bean and cheddar burger, and it was fabulous! The sweet potato fries weren’t as fresh as I would have liked, but they were still good. Service was great! We made reservations ahead of time, so we were able to walk right up at our designated time and be seated.

I ate at stable cafe with my 4 young children. They had a wonderful booklet for the kids to color in while they waited for their food which was great. Our food was very good. Our service however was amazing. Our server was Curtis (I think) and he was SO good with the kids and he anticipated everything we would need! We also loved the ambience of the restaurant. My kids loved that it felt like they were sitting in a horse stall!

A unique place to eat with the best cake I have ever eaten. Food was so so, but the red velvet cake was spectacular!! Must have a reservation if you want to get in during busy times. Server was friendly. It’s an experience, so expect to pay accordingly.

We always eat at The Stable Cafe when visiting the Biltmore. Our waiter, Carlos, was excellent and very attentive. His recommendations were very good and he made us feel right at home.
My husband got the brisket, which was tender and flavorful. I had the trout which was tasty.

Super fun place to eat for my little horse lover. The food was very good, a little on the pricey side, but very fresh. The kids meal was nicely priced and had great options. We were seated in one of the stalls and the air vent blowing up from the floor was very cold. Our server was sweet as could be, I think her name was Peggy. I had the sampler and a side salad. It was delicious. My son had the kids cheeseburger and chips and he liked both. We didn’t try the desserts, we were too full, but they sounded promising. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to dine here again.

Gate guard misdirected us to actual horse stables, did not provide site map (paper tickets printed due to COVID-19). Therefore, with GPS routing us continuously back to horse stables despite fact search was for Stable Cafe we missed lunch entirely. If guard had simply said go to the big house we would have made it.

Had to wait even though had a reservation. Also told was an anniversary and there was nothing to acknowledge that. Did buy a dessert and no acknowledgement of anniversary in writing like I saw on the website. Was a very special dating anniversary as we have waited 20 years to move to dating and engagement. Almost seemed like a joke when really wasn't. The French fries where over cooked and were not fresh, did not send back because wanted it to be a special event and enjoyable. Not pleased and would not choose this restaurant again. For the two of us we paid $86 for less than quality food and a wait time. Our server was fantastic. Traveled almost three hours for our special day and get-away, this lunch event took away from that.

Love eating there. My only issue is the comfort level dining in a booth The a/c is very uncomfortable. Very cold air under the booth and legs and feet
get very cold. Will always request a table in the future

Nothing special. If going and gluten free make sure the right thing is given to you. Would not go back. Better $17 meals elsewhere.

Our server Patty was awesome as was the iced tea, the Sangria's, Spinach salad and Sweet Potato Fries. Unfortunately, the rest of our food was not. The french fries were cold, the BBQ pulled pork had very little BBQ, the Cheeseburger was only so so and all the buns were not very fresh. Patty did bring us a side of Blackberry BBQ sauce and "hot" fries.

Our suggestion is to stay with the salads & beverages.

We got a burger and BBQ sandwich. The BBQ was awesome. My husband's burger had a very bland bun that fell apart as he was trying to eat it. He said it was like a cheap supermarket bun. We also ordered drinks and they were very good. The atmosphere was great. The booths are the old horse stalls. The waiter was very nice too.
