This was the original stables for the estate. They kept the stalls and turned them into booths. The place is hugh. The food and service was excellent. We shared a luncheon for two and couldn't do it justice! Must return.

While visiting the Biltmore estate, my husband and I decided to eat at the Stable Cafe which is situated in the former horse stables building. The walls of stable stalls are still standing, so you know you are in a converted stable, very nicely cleaned up though. This is the more expensive lunch choice, but we wanted to sit and... More

The Stables cafe of the Biltmore Estate is a wonderfully "Biltmore style" eatery, located in the actual formal stables adjacent to the residence. The meticulous renovations provide a truly unique and relaxing casual dining experience - the food is quite good. We have eaten there several times and highly recommend it. It is one of the many benefits of the... More

This restaurant was not open the last time we visited Biltmore. What an amazing transformation from stable to dining facility! Glad we came indoors as it poured rain while we were eating and had we eaten in the cafe in the courtyard, we would have been soaked. Although the venue was quite busy, the turnover was pretty quick and we... More

My husband and I ate lunch here after touring the Biltmore. We both ordered the Carolina Bison burger. It was really tasty! It was for a good meal after spending almost four hours walked around the Estate.

We were a bit hesitant to try the Stable Cafe given its proximity to the Biltmore Estate & were very pleasantly surprised with our lunch. My husband had their bison burger which was very good, if slightly overcooked. My chicken salad was amazing - chicken salad perfection. Our server, Maggie, was delightful & fun. We were completely pleased with our... More

You eat in the old converted horse stables. The service was good and the portions are big. We shared a plate and it was filling.

We took the house tour of the beautiful Biltmore Estate today, and finished up at lunch time. There were a couple stands selling hot dogs, baked goods, ice cream, but we chose the Stable Cafe on the lower level of the estate. It was crowded, so we took a pager, and shopped in the little stores on the same level.... More

Although we didn't eat here, we thought this was a beautiful restaurant and would consider eating there in the future. The booths are made from the original horse stables and it's so interesting how it's set up. Loved it and look forward to stopping in for longer next time!
