The brunch buffet spread was incredible. It included typical breakfast fare, seafood, meat carving stations, salad, fruit, and a dessert spread like no other. The only thing that surprised me was the so-called "donut wall" is really more like a "donut posterboard." Other than that, it was excellent!
The buffet food choices and quality were excellent. The service was outstanding.
It’s been quite some time since I’ve been here for brunch everything was wonderful. The service was quick and the buffet was outstanding. I can’t wait to return.
I have had several brunch luncheons at Deerfield that have been very good. This last brunch on super bowl Sunday was the worst experience I have ever had there. I had taken my daughter and all the family there for her birthday. We waited at our table for over half an hour before a waiter showed up to take drink orders which were not delivered to our table until we were almost finished eating. I had asked for coffee and cream which came after I was done eating but I never did get any cream for it. No one picked up our dirty plates the entire time we were there, we actually started stacking them on a table next to us after the people at that table had left. The food was very good as always but I was extremely disappointed with how we were treated. I was actually embarrassed to have taken my daughter there. Certainly not a 300 dollar plus lunch outing.
Just a really nice place for brunch. Food very good. Service very good. Noise level was great, unlile many other restaurants. We could actually hold a conversation. Surrounding area is nice as well
So lots of pros and cons:
Meat station: good selection however no choice on how well the meat was cooked I.e no choice of well, medium etc.
Seafood: I can’t eat shellfish so can’t speak on that, however my friend who came with me LOOVVVED the crab cakes but the crab legs was very salty and she couldn’t finish it.
Breakfast/omelette station: homefries semi cold but tasty. Only scrambled eggs no scrambled egg whites as a choice. Only pork meats I.e. no turkey or sausage. There wasn’t a choice of pancakes only waffles.
Waffle station: only plain and strawberry toppings as a choice. Didn’t see anything else.
Desserts: lots of options but the cakes where dry and a bit stale. The donuts were excellent. Canolis (not sure how to spell that lol) also excellent.
Ambience and staff was excellent. Although they did give me a dirty glass. They apologized profusely for it.
It would’ve been nice to have a bottomless mimosa bar where you can make your own but have the staff pour the champagne of course.
Over all: I wouldn’t run back but I will still keep it as a Sunday brunch choice.
This is the third time to Sunday Brunch at Deerfield in the last year. I believe they are getting better each time we go. The quality and variety of choices are second to none. The service continues to be very good. Give it a shot but make reservations or you may miss out.
Since I have dined at this restaurant before, I cannot compare our experience this time to past experiences. The service was horrible and we waited for over an hour for our bill only to have the computer crash on us. We waited an additional 30 min for the computers to come back up. It would not have been too bad if the waiter would've been more professional. The only complaint with the food was sour waffle batter, which when I bought it to their attention, they promptly corrected.
Only negative, first Mimosa I ever had that I did not like.
We really enjoyed ourselves I would love to go back
Perfect in every way. Food excellent! I would strongly recommend Deerfield.
Great food with an amazing ambience!
We have attended the Brunch with Santa for the past 4 years. It's always been a highlight to our holiday. This year we were very disappointed. The selection of food was not as good as in the past. The desserts were nothing to write home about. The piece of cake my grandson had tasted like wax. The coffee was luke warm. Having Santa in the same room that you ate in added to the excitement & festive nature of the event. Perhaps it was better for Santa to be in a separate room but it took away from the whole idea of having Brunch with Santa. For the price of the meal, it should always be an exceptional meal.
Brunch with Santa was great. Very busy but they were so well organized we barely noticed. Super selection of foods which were all cooked perfectly. Great staff
The brunch is absolutely excellent! The seafood was super fresh and delicious. The rack of lamb just melted in your mouth. They had a wonderful set up for brunch when we went to brunch with Santa!
Went for Santa Brunch and it was delicious although out of all the food on the buffet there was only 1 vegan option and it was fruit. A little disappointing for the price for my daughter. Santa was wonderful with our grandchild and we will definitely do again.
Cheyenne, our attendant was amazing! Added touch was the Banquet manager, Michael, coming over to greet us. Such a memorable Sunday Brunch!!
The food was outstanding, the variety and quality was amazing and everyone in my family had a wonderful time.
Holiday music would have really made this unforgettable. Food was better than I expected, and we will definitely be back.
Great place to dine. The atmosphere is comfortable and the surroundings are pleasant. Attentive wait staff.
Good food, good service. Price for dinner was on the high side. We had a 5pm reservation but didn't get seated until 5:35. The desert table was half empty when we were ready for it. Very poor selection.
Wait staff a little slow but overall, a nice experience
This was our first time for Thanksgiving! The property is beautiful and the service was outstanding! The food was delicious and my family was highly satisfied. So much variety in The entree’s and desserts. It’s a little bit pricey but worth it for sure. Will definitely go back in the future
Thanksgiving dinner food and service were outstanding. This is a special family holiday, and as such, I would like to see Deerfield institute a dress code. Dirty jeans, hoodies, and ball caps should not be allowed.
I'm not talking about jackets or ties, but collared shirts and no jeans would be appreciated.
This is the second time I have attended a holiday buffet at Deerfield, the 1st time was Mothers Day 2018 and we all enjoyed it. The second time was Thanksgiving 2018, the food was good but the service was very slow, and both of my drinks (soda&water) had leftover lipstick on them which was rather nasty. My silverware was rather dirty too, i was less than amused about that it was pretty obvious. Otherwise ill give it another chance in the future.
This was my second year coming for thanksgiving dinner at Deerfield. This is perfect for our small family dynamics. Excellent food and menu and staff. We will see you next year. Thanks
The food was very good!!! However for $60 per person and the amount of food we eat I thought it cost intirely way too much. The service was very bad the waiter came to our table when we first sat down he explained everything to us we went to get our food we sat down to eat we were three quarters way done eating before we could get him to get our drinks to us. It was a buffet there was no ham no green bean casserole we were very disappointed !! Turkey was very good !!
The food was good but the beef was a bit too rare. Service was nice, salads were good but could have had more desserts I think. All around the dishes were very good it was just too expensive.
We tried their Thanksgiving buffet for the first time after seeing rave reviews for their Sunday brunch. The food was plentiful, but
only marginally tasteful. I prefer quality over quantity and this experience was a disappointment. The $59.95 per adult was surely overpriced. This was our first and last experience at Deerfield’s Thanksgiving buffet.
Deerfield is an excellent place to dine. The food is excellent and the servers were great!!! I would recommend it to friends and family. We have been coming to Deerfield for several years and are never disappointed.
Hadn't been to Deerfield in 10 years & secured reservations this year. The staff were fantastic & a few went out of their way to make the visit special. While we were waiting for our table the bartender came by & asked us if we'd like a drink while we waited, even the complimentary ones.
The manager was very present with the guests & sincerely asked if he could do anything to improve our dining experience.
Rated a 4, not a 5, because the buffet needed to be serviced/clean more often. The spoon for mashed potatoes for example was totally covered in potatoes as was the plate. You'd pick up the spoon & the plate came with it.
The food was amazing, we were able to sample many things to see what we liked. The seafood salad, with lobster ^ shrimp, was fantastic. I could've had that as my meal!
FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND TASTY. ENJOYED THE SETTING AND FOOD DISPLAY WAS GOOD WITH LIST OF WHAT WAS AVAILABLE ON THE TABLE SERVERS. DESSERT WAS GOOD, BUT NOT EXCEPTIONAL. THE THANKSGIVING BRUNCH WAS VERY GOOD, BUT IS GETTING PRICEY WITH THE MAIN PRICE AND THEN TO ADD TIP TO BILL
Had a wonderful Thanksgiving day lunch at Deerfield. So glad that we chose the 1pm seating as when we left the line was out the door...and those were the people WITH reservations.
Lots of food choices and EVERYTHING was really good!
I will never again eat at Deerfield
it was the worst thanksgiving dinner i ever experienced
ever since chef Lou left deerfield, the menu has gone way down hill!
they have taken most of the traditional thanksgiving items off the menu
and replaced them with things like candied onions & crabcakes
who comes up with these ideas?
Not only did you way over charge @ 59.95 a plate
we left hungry due to the lack of choices
This is AMERICA
Put ThanksGiving food on our plates!
safe yourself some grief and go to Heartfeld !
Although a bit pricey. The atmosphere and ambiance was great. Very nice for a special day in a person's life.
What a great brunch served in a lovely bright cheerful room! My only complaint was that after each plate was removed, the dirty utensils were layed on the clean white table cloth! I think they should have been replaced each time! That’s a lot of extra utensils to wash but it really!!!
My husband and I and the other couple we were with both loved it and will definitely be back
The Sunday buffet brunch is wonderful! The selection, variety and quantity are terrific. The quality of food is rather good for a buffet. The fresh waffles are my favorite. We feel it's one of the very best buffet brunches we've ever been to and we think it's worth the 1.5 hour drive! Helps that our oldest child is a student at the University of Delaware 10 minutes away. My only criticism was that our waiter was inattentive and allowed our used plates to pile up on the table. We were a group of six so there was quite a pile! He also didn't check to ask if we needed additional beverages or any special orders. We will return.
The food was great. However it seemed the wait staff is spread a bit too thin, always waiting for coffee/drinks, plates to be cleared, the check. The servers did a good job, just not enough of them.
Unbelievably delicious!! Our service was impeccable and the food was nothing short of spectacular. This was beyond the best brunch ever!!!! I mean come on, they have a donut wall...
