Diner Reviews
  • "It's been on my bucket list to have brunch @ Deerfield and let me say it was worth the wait. All 110 feet of the brunch was beautifully presented, delicious and fresh. We enjoyed the seating and of course the staff was top notch. We'll be back again for a very special occasion."

  • "Good food, servers forgot us, only one water refill in 90 minute service. Beautiful location. Could be a memorable stop with servers who work as hard as rest of staff."

  • "This was our second time for Sunday brunch and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Too bad they stop serving the brunch in the summer since we have some dates we would love to celebrate there."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Our service was great! Tony was our server and provided excellent service. The manager even stopped by for a small chat too. We really enjoyed brunch at Deerfield and will return again. The millionaire bacon is excellent and you need a few pieces. They have a great selection and provide plenty of options."

  • "Have been to Deerfield several times for their Sunday bruch and a couple of times for a special occasion. Each time the food was wonderful and would recommend to anyone to visit for the food. Personally I have a problem when my beverage runs out & I have to run the waiter or waitress down to fill my drink as well as my wife's drink. If the waiter or waitress would like larger tips keep the drinks filled."

  • "The scene was wonderful and so was the staff. The sushi is honestly mediocre; the rice is pretty dry. Also, as much as I LOVE 80s dance music, I did not find it suitable for the environment... It was very lovely and definitely appealed to me, but I found it quite out of place. Some nice classical music seems more fitting--not ones that will put you to sleep since it is a buffet, though. Other than that, I loved my experience. I will be back again, thank you."

  • "We have hosted three separate groups for Sunday brunch - usually about 10 people each time. Everyone is impressed and is able to find something they liked. We attended a Santa brunch in December with our great nephews. We were in a separate room which was good for the children, and Santa and Santa's helper actually came in the room to meet with our nephews - very thoughtful. We also attended a Thanksgiving buffet a couple years ago. The food was excellent, but the room was quite crowded, so we prefer the Sunday brunch buffets. We have also had lunch several times and are always pleased with selection and quality of the food."

  • "Overall a good brunch. Large selection of breakfast items, some lunch choices, and many desserts. Quality of most items was pretty good. Bar drinks seemed a bit pricey. We would go back for a special day out."

  • "If you want a nice place to gather, great ambience, perfect location then this is a good choice. If you are interested in quality food at a reasonable price then pass on this. They have a big issue trying to keep the food warm to hot, that's a deal breaker for me. Wasn't that it was terrible, but when I am paying $35 per head time x 5, I expect hot food period. Come on this is supposed to be a restaurant, not McDonalds, find a way to keep the food hot. I did enjoy the room and desert, but I wish I enjoyed the breakfast too. Maybe I would be more tolerable if I paid 14.99 and not 34.99. If you are going to charge big numbers you better deliver the good if you want a good review."

  • "This was our second visit here for a family brunch. The food selection is excellent, including lamb riblets, prime beef roast, oysters, salmon, shrimp, etc., and made-to-order waffles and omelets. As others have said, the food temperature ranged from warm to cool. Surely, there should be a reasonable solution to this that would not be costly. Clearly, the serving containers and red light warmers are not sufficient. Our second concern was the difficulty getting beverages. A self-serve beverage counter for cold drinks would be preferable with carafes of hot beverages on the table. Getting wait service was difficult, and several requests went forgotten and required a second request."

  • "Variety of items served during lunch. I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted lunch or breakfast. Everything was delicious and the service was outstanding!!!! Very accommodating and eager to serve."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "It was easy to book and the staff were attentive, courteous and friendly. Unfortunately the quality of the food did not match the description, at $35 a head we expected the food to be warm at least. The temperature of every "hot food" item was tepid except the of letters which were made fresh. We didn't realize that the Mimosa's were an extra cost and @ $7 each thank goodness we only ordered for 3 of us. Overall I have to be honest and say we were disappointed with the food but the service was excellent. Would we go back? I doubt it very much. Would we recommend? No."

  • "Wonderful selection for brunch that displays good price w/ great food. Perfect for Valentine's Day, birthdays or a wonderful way to spend time with your favorite people. Service is always top notch...and yes, I will be going back."

  • "Great food, great atmosphere and kid friendly. My only suggestion would be to have coffee left on each table or the ability to go and refill your cup. We had to ask several times for a refill."

  • "Best Brunch buffet around. Quality food an lots of it. The staff takes pride in what they do, and it shows."

  • "We love Deerfield! We go for Sunday Brunch. We have had several special get-togethers there and have always been pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. Valentine's dinner was nice. The ballroom always looks nice and feels elegant. Some of the food was excellent, some was just OK. And the bananas and ice cream were scrumptious! Service was fair. The server was pleasant. But we had to wave someone down to get coffee and then again to get our check."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The usual Deerfield buffet approach geared to dinner. Two choices at carving and seafood stations and a dessert station making bananas foster. Shrimp and oysters were great. Crabcakes were small be tasty. Lamb could have been a bit warmer and meatier, but not a major issue. Pleasant setting, a buffet so servers just bring drinks. Enjoyed it a great deal and would go again next year."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We went for Valentines Day and were very happy overall with the food and the service was excellent. The meal was done in a brunch style with food stations. The crab cakes, lobster bisque soup, salads, bread, sautéed veggies and beef were excellent. The chicken wellington and scalloped potatoes were not quite as warm or flavorful as they should have been."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Everything was find except for the food selection. After having brunch on Sunday's before, I was not pleased with the limited menu. I was hoping and expecting so much more than what we were offered… not that I was looking to pig out or something like that. They had nearly nothing for the veterinarian… this was noted while waiting at the carving station. One guy realized they only had one each to choose from (vegetables, potatoes and pasta). Had this been my diet, I would have ask not to be served and went to eat somewhere else"

  • "this was our first time at Deerfield and we were looking forward to the brunch. The selection of food was wonderful and was divierse enough to satisfy those who wanted breakfast and those who would rather have lunch/dinner options. Our server brought the coffee but no cream and never brought either water or the requested soda. After a 30 minute wait we hunted him down, again asked for cream and the soda. By this time the coffee was cold. My husband finally found a manager who brought the cream and clean cups for coffee. The soda was still a no show and I think the water came with the check. The food was very good but the inability of our server to bring basic drinks or even check on us to see if we needed anything was very disapponting."

    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Several expected items were missing or in short supply, shrimp, malt balls. The tomato basil soup was not hot and drinks did not arrive in a timely fashion. It was a less "wow" experience than in the past few years."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "We've been to this brunch several times in the past and most often, the food has been very good. But on his particular Sunday we arrived a bit later (about 12:30 PM) and there was not much of a crowd. Because of the latter, I believe the food in the chafing dishes had been sitting there for quite a while. The food was just not up to what I have come to expect at Deerfield. Everything seemed to be warm, but not hot. Many of the dishes were either running low or simply dried out looking, including the carving station. For the cost of this brunch I expect to get the same experience whether I am the first diner or the last, whether it is a slow day or a busy one. This was definitely not the case."

  • "We've gone to Mendenhall for brunches for year, but had never gone there for dinner. What a wonderful find! Excellent service. Excellent ambience--and so different from Sunday mornings. The entrees were even better than we've experienced at brunch. We will definitely to this again."

  • "This was our second family occasion at Deerfield. The first was to celebrate my son Mason's award from the University of Delaware. The second was to take our young boys to have brunch with Santa. Both occasions far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to spending our wedding anniversary there."

  • "Not easy to make reservations if you are not very computer savvy. I did manage to make one, but when I needed to increase number attending from 10 to 12 the system kept sending me to January, 2014. After several unanswered calls I finally drove over to the restaurant and they were very nice and increased the number for me."

  • "I've been to Deerfield many times. Brunch is outstanding... go prepared to be glutenous. Meals outside in nicer weather are delightful on the deck. Live music is often good there with the occasional time where the band was slightly too loud for conversation. Service was good, but since my most frequent visits were for the Brunch buffet, I couldn't rate it higher. However, management does a great job of making you feel welcome."
