The best burger ever. Great flavor and cooked perfectly. The pickle was very sour. Everything is made on the grounds.

The server was very nice. The food was good, portions are more on the small side, or maybe just smaller than what most places serve. But very satisfied.

Food was good but not quite up to par for price. To be expected at a tourist spot I suppose. A good option when visiting g Biltmore, however.

The servers were very busy. They tried to get guests in and out as quickly as possible. The food was made in advance and warmed up when served. It was reasonably priced though.

We had never taken the kids to Biltmore Estate, so we decided to include the Stable Cafe as part of their inaugural visit and it did not disappoint. All four of us enjoyed our meals - and shared tastes around the table so that everyone was able to try a little of everything. Our server was outstanding - at the ready whenever we needed anything, but never intrusive. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone visiting the Estate.

This was the perfect place for lunch following the tour of the Biltmore! The Stable Cafe is near the tour exit. Reservations are highly recommended!! We made our reservation several weeks ahead of time and there were only two time slots still available. The place was full when we ate at 11:30am. The service was quick and the staff was great. My peach sangria and barbecue pork sandwich were very tasty.

Our 1st time dining at the Stable since COVID19, one year ago. It was great to be back.
We loved our experience. Whit did a wonderful job serving us. He is professional, polite and attended to our needs without interrupting our meal.

Great place to eat lunch while at the Biltmore. Service was incredibly fast. HIGHLY recommend making reservations beforehand. Also, when you exit the main dining room, take the stairs to the bathrooms upstairs where you can enjoy looking over the open railing to the dining hall below as well as look out the windows.

Food is good and is priced exactly to level of quality, so the value seems pretty spot on. Generous portions in the kids menu—we got a meal each for our 2, 4, and 7 year olds, and probably had a meal and a half leftover between the three of them. I highly recommend the steak salad.

What a hoot to realize the very space where we were eating our lunch was also the same exact stall the horses ate theirs. Food was delicious and if you want a unique place - this is it!!

When spending a day at the Biltmore, the Stable Cafe is our favorite lunch option. The food is delicious, there are lots of gluten free options, the ambiance is unique and it is right next to the house. It is a nice way to sit down and take a break between touring the house and the gardens. We especially love the pimento cheese dip and barbecue sandwich. Their gluten free bread is the best we’ve ever eaten at a restaurant.

We took our daughter and son-in-law for birthday lunches. We love this place. We will, hopefully, go back again and again. This day the inside temperature was so cold that we had to be moved to a table with sun beaming through the window. The food was outstanding, as always, but the service was somewhat slow. The prices were good for such an attraction. We would definitely recommend it if you visit the house and grounds for a tour.
