The nicest people, delicious food, cold beer, and a great cocktail menu! 4 for 4 rates five stars every time. If this isn't one of the best neighborhood bars around, then I don't know neighborhood bars! When you walk in, to quote a familiar refrain,...More

Went here with my partner for a dinner and beer. The din upon entering took me aback but when I said "2 for dinner please" they whisked us off to a dining room that was much quieter. Great pub atmosphere. Friendly, helpful, speedy service. Really...More

Nothing spectacular here. Pretty average atmosphere, pretty average drinks, pretty average food, pretty average prices. The service is the one thing I'll give an above average rating to. They're extremely nice and approach the table immediately after sitting down.

The Biltmore is always a great experience. Anytime we want a nice dinner out, The Biltmore does not disappoint. The menu is very good, the ambience is friendly and relaxed, and the beer selection is solid. This is solid food and a nice evening, without...More
