Deerfield is comprised of two options. The Pub & Grille caters to golfers & other guests (appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, wings and pub fare.) The Pub is open for the golf season, generally from late March to early November, and can vary based on weather and course availability/status. Please check our website for details and hours of operation. Reservations cannot be made for the Pub & Grille - all is first come first served.

A second set of very different dining options includes Sunday Brunch and Deerfield's holiday events. Holiday events can include Valentine's Brunch, Easter Buffet, Mother's Day Buffet, Father's Day Brunch, Thanksgiving Buffet, and Brunches With Santa. However, currently due to Covid-19 and the restarting of events such as these, just Thanksgiving (11/25/21) and Brunch With Santa Events (December 5th, 12th, 19th of 2021) are planned. Traditional Sunday Brunch events are not happening at this time.

    I took my husband to Deerfield for Father’s Day brunch. The brunch was just okay. The food was lukewarm, it could have been a lot hotter.

    DeerfieldResponded 2 days agoThanks for your note. The temperature is a really important part of the experience, and while we do what we can to keep everything hot and fresh, perhaps some items were not as warm as we would have liked. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any further information. You can use the Contact Us form on our Deerfield website.... Thank you!

    It wasn't like the old days wasn't the hot.But ok. No pasta. It was ok for just opening back up . Alittle over priced. But we did enjoy haven't been there for awhile.

    DeerfieldResponded 2 days agoDear DLCM: Thanks for your thoughts. We too were very happy to welcome you back after such a long absence. We want it to be a great value and a very memorable day for all. We usualy include some sort of pasta item on our Buffets (and we offered Cavatappi Alfredo with Pesto on Father's Day 2022, sorry you missed it). We hope to see you and your family again soon!

    My daughter and I attended Mother’s Day Brunch at Deerfield, and we had a thoroughly great time. The buffet had a good variety of breakfast, lunch and desert selections, including a carving station, and the food was hot and delicious. We had a lovely table by a window, and even though the day outside was overcast, the view of the grounds was very pretty. The service was attentive but not annoying; beverages were refilled as needed, plates were cleared quickly and everyone was friendly and helpful. We have decided to make this an annual mother-daughter tradition.

    DeerfieldResponded on May 10, 2022Thank you for your lovely note! We love being a part of traditions like the one you're just beginning. We're very happy you found everything hot and delicious. You're right - the weather was not stellar but glad the event was everything you had hoped....

    Food and service for the Easter buffet was wonderful. Everyone very pleasant and helpful, from check-in desk to food station servers to our friendly and efficient table server Ardeena. We had some of almost everything and especially liked the seafood and carving station offerings. There was a breakfast bread that I think was cranberry with a cinnamon streusel coating that became dessert for me. So, so delicious. Great buffet all around.

    DeerfieldResponded on April 18, 2022Kibbum - you are making me hungry with that description! Thanks for your thoughtful review and the nice comments about Ardeena. She's been an important part of our team for a while and glad she took great care of you!

    It was Easter Sunday, it was about 35 of us. The venue was very nice, however, I thought the brunch was overpriced. The menu was not that great. Would I go back, NO!!

    DeerfieldResponded on April 18, 2022Thank you for your note. We did not have one party of 35 yesterday, but perhaps it was under multiple reservations.

    The food presentation & seating were lovely. We prefer the food stations more separated. However, refills were done quickly & all the food was tasty. The dessert table was a real hit. All the staff were friendly & quick to address all our requests. We will do this again.

    DeerfieldResponded on April 18, 2022Thanks, Connie! This particular buffet was a bit of a unique setup due to the plastic shields and the served buffet. We expect a more traditional buffet set up - perhaps back to more stations - in the future. Glad you loved dessert and the service as well! Did you try a waffle sundae?!

    Went here for Easter Brunch with UD students. A beautiful atmosphere and great selection of foods. Satisfied the vegetarian, pescatarian, and meat lovers in our group. Service was attentive and friendly. The only negative would be that room was chilly so bring a sweater/jacket.

    DeerfieldResponded on April 18, 2022Thanks, Don. We are glad to hear all palates were welcome! We do have to plan on some temperature fluctuation - depending on how full the room is. Sorry it was a bit brisk for you but thanks for the feedback and glad you all had fun!

    Food was excellent and service good considering the number of people the waiters had to serve. There really needs to be a dress code as people don’t seem to have good judgement as to what constitutes appropriate dress. Ripped jeans and reveling clothing have no place at a family oriented holiday brunch.

    DeerfieldResponded on December 21, 2021Thanks for rating the food/service so highly. The concern on attire is challenging. I agree that a more polished look is what I would choose for a special occasion, but others prefer to be more comfortable. As a public venue, it's difficult to enforce. Imagine the potential ramifications of turning a guest away who's out of compliance. We connect with who made a reservation, but rarely connect with all guests in a party. We hope you find an appropriate and inviting environment on you next visit.
