A word from Deerpark Restaurant
This charming restaurant located on Biltmore Estate was originally an historic barn designed by Richard Morris Hunt.

Our Taste of the South Weekend brunches offers bountiful choices. It's an excellent setting for family dining, with children nine and younger dining for free. Paid Estate admission is required.

    I admit I was somewhat disappointed to hear it was a buffet only menu. However everything was very good. The parsnip and apple soup to the desserts. The beef was perfectly cooked and the fried chicken was scrumptious. I was surprised by the lack of vegetable selections but with 5 desserts who really cares?

    The Deer Park is a great place. We have had parties of just me and my wife and a party of 18 for Christmas brunch. The service is excellent. I have never had a problem at all. They go over and above to accommodate their guests. I wish they allowed guests to come and eat without buying the entrance ticket to the Biltmore Estate

    We have eaten here quite a few times and have loved it every time. My eleven year old son said, as I was telling him goodnight, "I had a great day! Brunch was so much fun! I love eating at the Deerpark." Our server was incredibly sweet and efficient. The food is amazing. The pumpkin bread french toast was a huge hit with our family. The only downside is that vegetarians have to been careful about certain items because they use a lot of ham and bacon in vegetables. We do always find quite a bit to eat though. Vegans would have a hard time eating here, but the staff is always willing to accommodate you. Great for a special occasion!

    Deerpark never disappoints. The Sunday brunch features delicious, locally sourced breakfast and lunch options. The buffet is kept well-stocked, hot and staff are available to answer any and all questions. This fall menu has SOOOOO many delicious items that the only problem is figuring out how to still be able to walk when you leave. From appetizers to desserts, EVERYTHING impresses. On Sundays they have live music that adds to a special atmosphere without intruding. I've been going for 20 years---and hope to live long enough to go 20 more.

    As season passholders, we have enjoyed the Sunday Brunch for several years. Our entire family agrees this is the best Brunch menu that they have had for years. The variety of dishes makes it hard to choose. The Kale Salad is fantastic! Kudos to the chef. We highly recommend the Sunday Brunch at Deerpark.

    We've dined at Deerpark for special occasions twice. Once for Saturday lunch (which is more reasonably priced) and once for Sunday Brunch. Both times the food was absolutely delicious! There were a lot more food choices for brunch (which explains the huge price difference). We will definitely dine at Deerpark again!

    I went for the Saturday lunch buffet and, overall, the food was really good. Mountain trout was on the buffet, which I love, and it was very good (not dry or overcooked). I went with a group of 5 family members and opted for the buffet so that everyone would be able to find something they liked. The waitress was great and the hostess and kitchen staff were very friendly. I visit a range of eateries from sketchy food trucks to high-end a la cart spots. Therefore, I believe that I have good sense of what's good and what's not. I'm not sure what others experienced on other trips, but for me and my family, it was a lovely day and meal. Until we have a reason not to go, we'll continue eating there.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the Deerpark Restaurant's lunch buffet upon arriving at the Biltmore Estate midday. Having experienced many worldwide resort restaurants, Deerpark's forest location was enchanting, refreshing and calming after a hectic travel morning and the beautiful buffet offerings were superbly delicious. Waitstaff was pleasant and attentive. Seating presentation with white table clothes and flowers were an exceptional touch. We would not hesitate recommending Deerpark to our friends and family along with the remainder of the Biltmore Estate.

    If in Asheville you must see the Biltmore estate. If it's the weekend, Deer Park for the Sunday brunch is the place to eat. Early 1900's recipes are delightful for the pallet. Superior service with great presentation. The old world atmosphere gives you a a chance to experience a more laid back time and enjoy the feeling that you are truly posh.

    We have tried both the Saturday Lunch and the Sunday Brunch at different times. The food has always been outstanding, the wait staff has performed at a very high level. When they open the doors/walls and you are basically sitting in the court yard, it can be extremely relaxing. Just a great dining experience. The buffet does not have an extensive selection; however, every dish is excellent. The deserts too. We have had several anniversary lunches here and would love to do it again.

    We haven't been to Deerpark for some time, which was one of our favorite after church places to eat. We went on Saturday, our anniversary and was somewhat surprised by the sparceness of the buffet. Serving a trout, fried chicken basket and a brisket slathered in gravy was different, but somewhat meager and since neither of us eat trout and I don't eat fried chicken, only left me with brisket. We used to come on a regular basis to Deerpark and akways came to the Valentines Day dinner and dance, but I don't think we'll be coming back for lunch again.

    Deerpark is a beautiful restaurant for lunch or brunch. The soft live guitar music along with the beautiful lighting made the atmosphere so calm, comfortable and relaxing as we enjoyed our meal. The lunch buffet offered a variety of foods from various cheeses, breads, meats, vegetables and desserts - all presented so picture-perfectly! Wherever you sit, you have an excellent view of the lush courtyard. The windows were so large and open so a gentle breeze was felt. What a perfect dining experience!

    We have been coming here for years. And this was the first time that I was not blown away. The brisket was too overdone...a bit tough. The selection was not as amazing as it has been in the past. And this was the first time that our tea/coffee were NOT included in our buffet price. Really, 33 dollars and you can't include coffee or tea???? Maybe we will try them for something other than the brunch next time. I wish the brunch could be like years past...dessert bar used to be AMAZING. Please try to recreate that again.
