Enjoyed lunch there. I was surprised it wasn't busier. BBQ sampler for one was actually plenty for 2 of us. Actually, Pimento cheese dip was my favorite part of the meal. Glad a friend recommended it and wanted to pass that along.

We had lunch here while visiting the Biltmore. It was busy and our party of five was seated pretty quickly. The service was quick and the food was good and reasonably priced.

I expected the restaurant to be crowded. There was only a short wait. The food was good and it was a nice break to walking around the Estate and Gardens. It fit in nicely with the character and charm of the estate.
