A word from Deerpark Restaurant
This charming restaurant located on Biltmore Estate was originally an historic barn designed by Richard Morris Hunt. Now transformed into a courtyard restaurant with walls of windows, Deerpark Restaurant serves a generous array of Southern style dishes and Appalachian specialties. 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.

    Our last day on Biltmore Estate I scheduled brunch with friends. The menu for the buffet brunch was AMAZING! Our server went over her personal best picks and warned us it was a lot. So we needed to pace ourselves. The location was beautiful-like dining in the woods. Live music tastefully appropriate. The server helpful, polite and engaging. The food, magnificent! I highly recommend it for groups or just for couples.

    My wife and I are not buffet fans. We previewed the menu and took the chance. We were pleasantly surprised. The selection was varied enough to please a wide range of tastes. Only disappointment was no "real" chocolate desert selection or ice cream. The desert selections offered were very good we tried 4 and shared. It was an excellent experience for the cost.

    We have eaten at Deerpark many times over the years. Our most recent visit was very enjoyable. We found the quality of the food to be improved over our last visit. The service was impeccable - all staff were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is always conducive to having a leisurely and excellent meal with family and friends. Highly recommended.

    I have eaten at the deer Park restaurant many times before and always looked forward to returning. I had anticipated Sundays visit with such enthusiasm that my new husband was extremely disappointed. In the past every food item was a treat to the pallet this visit I only ate two items that I would describe as even being Good! The food was such a let down that I will never return to this restaurant! The chef needs choose an entirely different menu. I must add that the service and the staff were as impeccable as always.

    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.

    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.
