    Just sampled the delicious pot roast at Village Social! I chose this because of all the great reviews on Trip Advisor! They did not lie! The pot roast was exceptional! We paired it with a nice little Pinot Noir which complemented it perfectly! Alex our server was attentive and pleasant without being intrusive. The vibe is great! Relaxed but upscale!

    Had shrimp with cheese grits. Nice spice but grits not very cheesy almost dry. Also had shrimp with bacon appetizer. It came with 3 extra large shrimp for about $14. We sat outside. It was nice. Definitely need to make a reservation

    Fried Green Tomato appetizer was best we have ever had. Bacon Cheeseburger and BLT were outstanding. My friend ordered a “Roast Beef Panini.” EPIC FAIL. It was on Texas Toast (not panini), gad a minuscule amount of ‘roast beef’ that was old, dry, and tasted like shoe leather. She took one bite and then shared my sandwich. I took one bite and spit it out myself.

    My egg was a little overcooked but that may be because I said "scrambled hard". Everything else was great and my friends' loved the pecan waffles!

    My shrimp tacos were good but the fries were too salty to eat. The excess salt was very visible, but the waitress did not come by before I was finished with my tacos. She came to get my husband's plate and asked if I was finished. I said I was because the fries were way too salty to eat. She didn't apologize or acknowledge in any way that a large portion of my meal was inedible. My husband's burger was good, as was the panini our friend ordered. Their fries were not as salty as mine. I would not return to this restaurant.

    We liked the fact that tables were not “on top of each other” but were spread decently apart. Wait service was attentive and quick but we never felt rushed. I had the shrimp and grits which were very good, hubby had the pot roast (again very good but a little strange in that it was served in a “half bowl” that you might expect a salad. He said it was hard to put down your knife and fork as there was no level surface!) Friends had the shrimp taco and the roast beef panini. We all cleaned our plates!

    We made reservations after the house tour late afternoon and it was the perfect stop. The biscuits, shrimp and grits and salmon were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The restaurant did not look like much more than a bar when we walked in and the meal was a nice surprise.

    We are never disappointed with our meals on the estate but this one stood out as our server, Tonya, was incredibly friendly and so sweet and attentive to our dog, Marla. She provided a water bowl, always had snuggles, kind words, and most importantly (to Marla) pockets of treats. We will be back, likely with Marla in tow, and look forward to our next meal. We know Marla will be on the lookout for Tonya especially.

    Of course you have to be in Biltmore to go to Village Social, but I will go back next time I'm there. The food and service were outstanding. We went for brunch before our tour of the estate and it was a perfect kick-off.

    The food and service was just not good. The food arrived at the table cold and when we spoke to our server they where kinda clueless. They did offer to take it back but after a long wait for our food ( 30 mins) and a disappointing experience so far we just ate what ever wasn’t horrible and got out of there. We did speak to the hostess on the way out and she gave me the deer in the headlights look. One more thing, the table next to us experienced the same issue.

    First, the good stuff. The waitress was great. Sweet and attentive. Now, the not so good stuff. I tried the chicken breast and garlic mashed potatoes. The chicken was dry and overcooked and bland...don't think they used any seasoning at all. The garlic mashed potatoes were good. The other two sides were ones that I don't like - fried green tomatoes and collard greens. So opted out of those. I could have gotten a salad, but they didn't have a wedge or casear and I don't do "weeds" lettuce. SO...I paid $26 for the meal. Absolutely a waste of money. There's not way in any universe that the meal was worth it. I probably will not go back there again for a meal other than breakfast. I had breakfast there twice and it was good and relatively affordable. $15 for 2 slices of bacon, 2 scrambled eggs and 1/2 cup of hashbrown cubes. I love Biltmore and am a season passholder, but the price of food just isn't worth eating there.

    We were seated immediately and the food came out quickly. It was quiet, making it easy to visit with one another. We all enjoyed our food…the shrimp tacos and fried green tomato BLT. The asparagus and pasta salad were also good. It was a little pricey, but that is expected in a touristy place.
