    The food was very good. I ordered the shrimp and grits. Although I didn’t love the seasoning it was still excellent flavor. My husband ate it. And I ate his strip, asparagus and mac and cheese. It was all perfect. The waitress offered to replace my shrimp and grits. It was a casual atmosphere. We enjoyed our dinner very much

    The food is low quality for the price point. The only thing we ordered that was delicious was the starter- fried green tomatoes. We ordered our son the kids mac and cheese for lunch and it was boxed Kraft Mac and cheese. After having high tea at the Biltmore Inn this restaurant was a huge let down.

    We ordered a burger, along with shrimp and grits. After waiting 45 minutes, we asked our server to check on our food. Her reply, “ burgers take a long time, there’s nothing I can do.” After another 15 minutes, we approached the hostess for help and received our food 10 minutes later. Although the food was hot and tasty, waiting an hour and 10 minutes for a burger, in a half-empty restaurant, left us with a less than positive experience.

    I have dined at the Village Social at least once when I visit Biltmore and have never been disappointed. My particular favorite dish is salmon, and whether in a salad or grilled, the dish’s flavors always combine perfectly. The service is good, and the atmosphere friendly.

    We had a happy Mother’s Day meal on the patio at Village Social. The food was excellent and the service could not have been better. We could hear the banjo player in the courtyard of the hotel from our table…the perfect accompaniment to our meal

    Upon entering they said it would be a few minutes, to which I replied is that better for us? He said it was better for him. Wrong answer bud. Table was wet when we sat down so they had to wipe it again. Server was fine. $11 kids mac and cheese was Kraft, corn bread was bland, soups were sub par. The salad and cocktails were good. I wouldn't recommend. Do better folks.

    This reservation was for my 16yr old son and his prom date. They had the best time and everyone was so sweet and welcoming to the young couple. Another patron ended up paying for their meal because she said the were just the cutest couple. The prom was on the estate and they had the time of their lives.

    The Fried Green Tomato appetizer was better than I anticipated, and very tasty. The Artisan Green Salad was AMAZING. All the flavors came together perfectly and the whipped goat cheese made my meal! I was nervous about the dandelion vinaigrette, but it was soooo delicious! My boyfriend's Herb-Roasted Chicken was a bit dry, but he loved the three cheese macaroni and collard greens that came with it.

    The food is actually better than the iInn. Had shrimp and grits.. interesting color and look but I was surprised how much I liked it. Wife had great French fries. Our waitress was great. Not food related, but the bathroom was like going to a 5 star golf resort. It was cleaner than the restaurant… My wife was amazed at the cleanliness and design.. me, I was as happy with everything.

    The restaurant is casual, rather loud, close seating, offering a somewhat limited menu. We were never quite sure who our server was since someone different brought each course and checked on us. Positive note - the food was very good! For starters, the fried green tomatoes were excellent as was she crab bisque. Shrimp and grits was delicious. Pot roast was good, but scored lower. We skipped dessert to go to the village dairy bar, only to find it was closed! Big disappointment. Wish we had opted for dessert! We would visit again for a casual evening dinner or afternoon lunch. Four star review.

    Great dining option for antler hill village. Can be somewhat tricky to get to if you’re not good at finding your way. Food was very good and service was good. Quite noisy but I imagine that’s the case for all of the busy restaurants on the Biltmore estate. I recommend reservations, especially for families with kids.
