    This exceeded my expectations. The salad was wonderful and the staff could not have been more lovely. It was a touch noisy, but, it's an open air stable, so that is to be expected. Would definitely go back!

    Picked this restaurant because it had so many gluten-free options and the menu was labeled GF. Also, liked the fact that items with nuts had a nut symbol. The Trout Almandine was excellent. The sampler was average and a bit overpriced. However, I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

    None of the restaurants on the Biltmore estate disappoint. However, The Stable Cafe happens to be my top choice for estate dining. The menu is big and reasonably priced for Biltmore prices, plus there’s a kids menu and a decent wine list.

    Delicious and refreshing after a tour of the Biltmore! We had reservations for about an hour and a half after the start of our audio tour, and the timing worked great. The menu had great selection for the whole family, and our waitress was exceedingly attentive despite a packed restaurant. We felt so cared for and enjoyed our meal!

    Really neat environment! Service was also great. Menu was good and food was good as well. It was a very good experience overall but not amazing in terms of food. It is also very expensive but you expect that at an attraction like disney.

    The pimento cheese dip appetizer was very good and the service was attentive without being overwhelming. My husband's burger was just okay and my chicken salad sandwich was fine, but didn't have a ton of flavor. It was big enough to share, I thought. 1 appetizer, 2 sodas and two sandwiches came to $70 with tax and tip. The sandwiches were in the $17 ballpark and the entrees were $27+
