Deerpark Restaurant-Biltmore Estate
Large crowd, so expected less. Can understand staff stressed, but did well.
Only real problem for us was being seated next to outside door that was really cold air blowing in when ever someone in or out which was often. Food got cold.
Extremely disappointed with food quality. Also as a season passholder who visits multiple times per month, I extremely unhappy to learn you do not honor passholder discounts on holidays. I will seriously take this into consideration when renewing my season pass. Also considering discontinuing my wine club membership.
We had a fabulous Easter Brunch. The service was exceptional and the food sensational. I highly recommend it!
The atmosphere is rustic classy which I loved. Service was very good.
As an avid home cook, I had high expectations of this meal. Unfortunately I was mostly disappointed. The pork was dry and lacked flavor, the roasted carrots lacked proper seasoning, and the lentil mixture was flavorful but was dry. The shrimp cocktail still had legs and a thin shell attached which was unpleasant since I had to spend my meal cleaning my daughter’s meal. The humus was tasty and the crab bisque was delicious. My husband said the prime rib was tasty and well cooked.
The dessert table had a beautiful presentation and a lovely attendant. The actual food, aside from the ice cream and macaroons, left a lot to be desired. It was Easter Sunday “Holiday Menu”. Two adults and 4 kids over 10 years of age cost $222.00 plus tip not including the $70 per person it cost to get on the Biltmore campus. I would not likely eat here again.
A different food experience, that a first time visit would
enjoy! Definitely, the visit must be at a special holiday time!
We attended the Easter Brunch and it was simply fabulous!! Lots of choices, fresh, creative and tasteful.
We went for Easter Brunch and the food was delicious. The best prime rib I ever had. Great omlette station. It us setup well so it doesn't seem crowded and no waiting in line. Tables were set very pretty, and almost all of them by a window. Our server was, prompt, friendly and informative. I was disappointed in the dessert table. If your not a fan of cake and ice cream, then their is not much for you. It would have been nice to have cheesecake, creme brulee, mouse or brownies and Easter cookies.
I go to deerpark’s brunch several times a year and the Easter brunch just didn’t live up to previous expectations. Had a reservation and they sat a walk in that was in line right in front of us with the same number of people in their party first... They then sat the 4 of us at a massive 6 top which didn’t make for good conversation. Then the food this year was lukewarm and mediocre at best. While I’ve had many good experiences here this one just didn’t live up to expectations and at $56 a person I expect more.
One of my favorite places to go to when I am not cooking for the holidays
Many mistakes were made and I talked to a manager about them. The carving stations were stocked at least 40 minutes before opening and the heat lamps were not lowered to keep the beautiful cuts of meat properly warm = result was cold meat from cold air from the front door passing through the buffet area.
Sausages were cooked on one side resulting in raw finished product.
We are annual pass holders and will continue to be, only at the Inn on Biltmore and not Deerpark.
Celebrated in March and April birthdays along with Easter.
Beautiful restaurant with an amazing spread of salads, meats, breads, butters, jams, pies, cakes, tarts and more. Kids under 9 eat free. Great lunch buffet. We were seated fairly late in the meal time 1:30p. Only complaint was that the server was a bit scarce.
We have been to Deerpark many times, but the buffet was not as well done as it has been in the past. There were not as many options as there usually are. There were not many kid friendly options. There were multiple dishes that were empty and not refilled on the buffet. There were also numerous times when there were no clean plates up at the buffet. Our server mixed up our check and seemed confused as she was trying to handle 10 checks at one time. We waited a very long time to get our check and pay. Overall it was just not worth the money. We have been numerous times and felt very differently. I hope this is not the new standard.
What a nice surprise! Food was outstanding. Facility is gorgeous. Area around buffet gets a little congested.... could be laid out a little better- but worth every penny
The food was really not good at all. We were so disappointed in the overall experience of Deerpark Restaurant. It is a beautiful place but the service was terrible and the food was not good at all. Please try to improve it because we would love to come back to this lovely place.
Only complaint is that it took 25 minutes to pay my bill because they had a new computer system and had difficulty processing my discount.
The food was not good. Deserts bland. Taste like poor quality cafeteria food.
although the Deer Park experience has always just been a treat for us, we are so enthralled by the Beauty and the nature of the food that it's going to be a much more regular event. I always enjoy eating things that I wouldn't be able to make it my home and believe me the Deer Park menu fulfills that. I recommend it to everybody. There was also a very pleasant singer at the front as you walked in. He was quiet, and on tune. Biltmore anytime of the year is a great pleasure and the National Treasure.
Excellent service, great service from wait staff, food prep and service was outstanding!
From the time we walked into the restaurants foyer until we left, we were pleased with our experience. The food, the staff and music were very nice. This was our daughters 21st birthday and she really enjoyed going there for her birthday brunch. We want to try the lunch sometime.
We absolutely loved our Sunday brunch. We will be back.
Brunch was delicious an enjoyable experience with friends. Atmosphere was relaxing. We will certainly be back to the Deerpark
We arrived early and they sat us right away. The buffet was excellent and service as well.
The Southern buffet lunch was excellent! Nothing fried, just great food. The brisket was from Biltmore raised cows. You won’t be disappointed. Will be returning again .
Wonderful food, atmosphere and acoustic music, for a great value.
This was an absolute fabulous experience! Us and our family of 10 will certainly be back again!
Nice lunch with great food and service. Never been disappointed.
Food stations were NOT replenished. The beef was just the ends leftover and they refused to bring out fresh portions to carve. The warming areas were cold...food was cold. The seafood chowder was good, but folks had to wait 10 minutes for staff to replenish the serving area. My water glass was dirty inside and out...sad.
We are annual passholders, and will not be returning to Deerpark...vastly overrated and underserved.
Best SUNDAY BRUNCH EVER!!
Exquisite!!!! The food is scrumptious and the employees are so wonderful!!!
Always amazing, Deerpark delivers a magnificent buffet with the elegance and ambience worthy of the Vanderbilt name.
The tranquil setting, the melodies of the guitarist, and the abundant feast invite guests to relax, unwind, and soak up every soothing luxurious moment. And yet, these are exceeded only by the attentive and courteous staff, in particular, Mr. Maurice Skanes, Banquet Supervisor, and our wonderful server, Icylin. My parents' 57th anniversary was remarkable thanks to everyone at Deerpark and Biltmore Estate. Even the greeters st the entrance gate are pleasant and welcoming. Thank you!
The service was great and food was outstanding. We enjoyed the guitar background music -- it was pleasant and not overbearing.
Always love eating at Deerpark! One of the highlights of going to the Biltmore Estate!
It is worth going just because it is on Biltmore Estate. Beautiful location. Food was above average but not great. Service was mediocre.
This was our first time there and they seemed to be off schedule. We had a 11am reservation and didn’t get seated till 11:40. Then the buffet line was so crowded we could get to the food.
Hoping this was just a bad day for them but not the typical experience I would expect for the price.
Always a huge assortment and fresh food. You'll never leave hungry!
We partake in the Sunday Brunch 3 or 4 times a year and are never disappointed. Exceptional service. Exceptional food with a menu that exceeds our expectations. The food presentations are part of the experience.
Excellent food, atmosphere, and service. I left weighing ten pounds more than when I arrived and will be back soon to make it an even 20 pounds!
One of the best buffets we have ever eaten. Plenty of choices and all of them prepared very well. The desserts are as good as it gets and the main courses offer variety for everyone. If you go, be sure to make a reservation. I am pretty sure they use the reservations in order to prepare not only the food but the number of servers etc they need to have on hand. The busier Biltmore gets, the busier Deerpark will get as it has been "discovered."
It’s really I nice buffet for lunch. The selections are great and they have a lot of gluten free options.
