One of the best brunches we have had. The food is imaginative and well presented, with items you don’t see anywhere else. Great service in a lovely location

We had a 10 am reservation and arrived on time. We were put in a line to be seated and waited more than 10 minutes. When we were taken to the table, there were not enough places set or chairs. Once past this, everything was fine except paying the bill. We asked the wait person to put a certain amount on 2 cards which did not happen. We fixed it ourselves.

It is a wee bit pricey, but the variety and quality are superb. Tables are indoors, but are surrounding
a sunny courtyard full of all sorts of flowering shrubs (seasonal) and ground cover.

We really enjoy the laid back atmosphere of Deerpark Restaurant. There is not a jinormous amount of selections, however the quality cannot be better. We enjoy the high quality foods and desserts, we fell off our diet for this buffet and are glad we did.

Our waitress was really nice and wonderful. The guy serving the meat was unpleasant. I asked for the end of the beef where it wasn't really pink. He didn't give me what I asked for. We felt he didn't like our kids. He was very short with us and out kids when we came up to him. The others guest he had a different approach with and seemed to be happy to talk with them. The last time we came the cook was so kind and answered questions and was happy to talk to us and our kids.

We did Sunday brunch Feb 10. We had reservations but it was not crowded at all so we got in early. We were sat next to a window and emergency exit and it was cold! The table was nice and clean. Our servers were nice. But...a staff member knew some of the folks at a nearby table and he was SO LOUD we couldn’t hear one another at our table. It went on for 10+ minutes.
The food was very good and fresh. The arrangement was odd however. There seemed to be no logical flow to the buffet tables and the omelet station created a jam where you had to wait just to get back to your table. The only other suggestion would be a label of some sort AT the table to indicate if gluten free or dairy free. Had to look at menu on table and then search to see if it looked like the description.

Website should have explicit warning pop up message stating that you need Biltmore Estate passes to eat at this restaurant. When I think of ‘Biltmore’, I think of Biltmore Village, not the big house people pay to go look at. This could have saved me a lot of time and a trip ending in disappointment.

We think the Deerpark is the best dining value at the Biltmore! Varied choices with fresh ingredients along with a friendly staff and pleasant surroundings . As annual pass holders we try to visit Biltmore on Fridays and plan on the Deerpark lunch. On our last visit the salad choices were exceptional . Loved the farro and arugula salad and paper thin sweet potato chips with Chipotle dip! The homemade pickles were a treat. The hot entrees always include a meat variety but this time the spicy crab dip on the hot table stood out for me. Of course, the dessert table is always great and my favorite was the grapefruit honey layer cake! Tea and coffee are included. For $22 this is a wonderful way to enhance your visit to Biltmore!

Yes but now with hesitation.... brought 5 people with me for Brunch. I totally bragged about the food and my friends couldn’t wait to enjoy the Biltmore experience. ( they are considering annual passes). The reason for the 2 less stars were because the food was not hot, in fact 2 items were cold and disappointing mainly because they were the eggs Benedict and also the pancakes. I understand the reason for keeping some items in chaffing dishes but the eggs Benedict were just sitting out. Cold eggs are the worst.

We hope next time it will be better.

Although most of the food was good, there was a service problem. Food was not being replaced when it ran out. Not just one thing but several.
No sweet potato chips. No green beans. No chicken. No beef.
We waited 30 min to get it refilled. By then we were not hungry.

I usually reserve my reviews for either very, very good or very, very bad experiences. This was kind of a mixed bag. Our reservation was for 1pm on a Saturday. We arrived about 8 minutes early and were seated within 2-3 minutes. However, it appears we were punished and not rewarded for making a reservation. I am guessing that they wanted to ensure that they had a table ready when the reservation arrived, so they put reservations at the tables that walk-ins would never request. Our table was barely inside the door and quite likely the table furthest from the buffet tables. They seated the 3 of us at a table for 5, but did not remove any of the extra place settings. The extra space would have been helpful since no one picked up any of our empty plates until we were almost finished with the meal. Since it was a buffet and all the server needed to do was keep the water glasses full and remove the dirty plates, I was very disappointed in the lack of service provided by a restaurant at the Biltmore Estate. And to top off the experience, the dining room was very hot, I noticed the thermostat read 81 degrees on one of my trips to the buffet.

The food was very good, but not exceptional. The butternut squash and sweet potato au gratin was very good, but scarce. I had to return to the buffet 3 times to finally get any as they were always waiting for more from the kitchen. Salads and breads were exceptional and maybe the best roasted green beans I have ever eaten. The blackened catfish was also very good.

Food was ok. I enjoy The Bistro restaurant in Biltmore so much better. Also we had my 10 year old granddaughter with us and she got charged the adult price of 21.00 which I thought was ridiculous. She ate one piece of chicken and some vegetables. Should be a children’s price Will not go back

I am repeating the same words I relayed following our Christmas visit. The music was terrible. If you can’t find someone who can play well then don’t offer music. It sounds as if the girl is practicing scales on the cello(poorly).
The food was interesting and most of it was wonderful but my husband ate something(probably the slider or dip) that made him very sick. Apparently something was held at too high a temp or something. I didn’t eat the same things.
Anyway it wasn’t our usual experience at Deerpark. It is usually superb. We recommended it to a friend this week.

This is by far the best menu that they’ve had in a good few seasons. The desert selection in particular is broad and the vegetable selection is extremely well seasoned.

I’m never a huge fan of the meat selections at Deer Park so I’m not a good judge there, but they do have small burger “sliders” this menu that pack quite a surprising level of flavor and my wife commented that the (on the bone) chicken was extremely good.

This is our second visit in as many weeks we enjoyed it so much.

Last season’s menu was lack luster to say the least, so the late winter menu is such a welcome change!!

This is the third time I have had the pleasure of eating at the Deerpark Restaurant. Each time has been absolutely fantastic. My wife and I prefer eating the Sunday Brunch because the menu is so good. There are always nice treats to try and different types of food to explore as well as good food that is just a must to sample. Thanks for a wonderful restaurant.

The Saturday brunch is simply the best restaurant deal around. Food variety is extensive, preparation is on point, and presentation is attractive. Service, from waiters to servers, is first class. With the menu change for each season, there is reason to return on a regular basis.
