Took my mom for brunch. Food was generally good, but honestly not really worth the price for brunch; I’ve been twice and I don’t think I will go back on Sunday - go on Saturday, save $10; much better deal if your heart isn’t set on an omelet. The line for waffles was 5-10 minutes as they only had one waffle iron in service. I waited for awhile before I gave up and just got chicken strips from that line - they were dry and kind of old; probably because no one was getting them except the people waiting endlessly for waffles. I will say the desserts were rich and wonderful, and all the veggies and fruit were fresh and flavorful. My big complaint is that we were seated at a table that was in the glaring sun. We were there around noon (which surely contributed to the scarcity of waffles, but maybe another iron and attendant could’ve solved that problem!). There is really no reason that they don’t have light control on the windows - blinds of some sort! It was really uncomfortable pretty much the whole time, even tho I moved my chair to try to get out of the direct line. It is true I could’ve asked to be moved, but I didn’t think it would be so bad when we sat down, and also all of the small, 2 person tables seemed to be arranged along the windows anyway, so I didn’t really think there was much they could do and I can’t possibly be the first person to complain about it.

If you’re looking for a great Sunday brunch buffet in Asheville, look no further.. We’ve been to Deer Park a few times and are always amazed at the variety and quality of food items they bring to the table. You also can’t beat the ambience, presentation, and friendly-attentive staff. If you plan to go, I strongly recommend making reservations due to the popularity. We look forward to our return visit and hopefully soon!

So wish I could review this place but never made it there because no website, hostess or even open table advised that the only way to eat here was by purchasing a Biltmore ticket of nearly $100pp. We drove out of our way, excited and hungry for special holiday brunch when had to circle round and hint for another place in the asheville holiday weekend craze! There were several ways restaurant could have advised us but I think purposely did not because why would anyone go to this place if they weren’t already on property!

Way overpriced for what it is. Even if it was $9.95, we still would have had issue. The quality of food was poor. Ryan's buffet is better and we wouldn't eat there either. There are other fine restaurants on the property. We will choose them next time we are at Biltmore.

Our reservation was for 1:30pm. A couple of things were 'picked over' and they ran out of two dishes and could not refill them. We were disappointed to miss them. From the published descriptions, they sounded delicious. If we go again, we will definitely try to go earlier.

The staff was excellent--attentive, gracious service--both servers and managers.

Very pretty venue, food was good for the value, however, the live music was too loud. It was not pleasant or enjoyable as we couldn't have a conversation because the vocalist was so loud. Best part of lunch was when she took a break.

I prepaid for 4 to have lunch for a special occasion. One person wasn’t feeling well and didn’t eat at all. He didn’t make a plate or eat one bite, but I had already prepaid for him. One person complained that the brisket was very fatty and not good. She also complained that the peanut butter s’mores cake was dry. My daughter and I are vegetarian and while there were side choices, there was nothing at all offered as a vegetarian protein. There was the mushroom galette which was vegetarian, but not a protein and the taste and texture were very disappointing. When I told the server at the carving station that I was disappointed that the hush puppies were cooked in a shared fryer because I have an allergy, he kind of rolled his eyes. Our server was very pleasant and was probably the best part of the meal. All in all, I paid around $100 for three people to eat and the food was a bit disappointing. I wasn’t even impressed with the macaroni and cheese. Pretty bland. Not the impression I was trying to make on out of town guests from Delaware. I made the reservation because we have eaten at DeerPark a couple times before and were pleased. I hope the menu changes sometime so we can try it again and I would hope the chef would keep in mind that not everyone paying to dine there eats meat and there should be an entree that is just as appetizing as the ones offered to meat-eaters.

Love the flavor of home cooked food. So much variety everyone will be happy. Petite desserts so you can try one of everything. Plus delicious full size cheesecakes and other wonderful desserts. Great price for so much food!

We visit Deerpark often and like to take out oft owners to bunch. It is worth the cost, answering the questions, What will we do with them?? We also love to walk our Irish Setter around the lagoon. The Biltmore wine continues to improve.

Most of the food at this buffet was very good with a few exceptions - the ham and brisket at the carving station was barely lukewarm; sauces not labeled and when asked what they were - answered as inconvenienced. Lots of bowls around but only one location for plates that was not easy to find. Shelba our server was fine but overheard heard get “snarky” with a nearby table about coffee not being served hot. Not quite the Biltmore standard for food or service.

As part of an overnight stay to see Chihuly at Night, my daughter and I had Sunday Brunch at Deerpark. Beautiful surroundings and a lovely end to our visit.

Food quality and variety was excellent. Fresh ingredients, special recipes.

Server was pleasant, but delayed in getting an answer to an allergy-related question, used plates were not cleared timely.

The Deerpark is our favorite place to dine in western NC. The service staff is friendly but not too personal. The staff at the various food centets (meats and desserts) are very helpful and friendly and exude warmth and class. We have an aversion as well as physical reaction to garlic and onions, and the servers have been so helpful to us by consulting with the chef and then highlighting on the menu items that we might want to avoid. It’s a very special experience to dine at Deerpark when visiting the Biltmore estate as it is in harmony with the entire offering. Thank you.

Deer Park Restaurant is my favorite place at the Biltmore Estate.

I have been to many times, but the food is always fresh, and it is very delicious, and it is like the food that my mother made with care.

It would be great if Deer Park restaurants were open every day.

It is a much better quality and better food than any buffet in Vegas.

The food was very good and large selection. But the staff was fabulous. The hostess and the rest of the staff were top notch. We were there for a concert and were concerned about transportation the hostess did everything possible to make sure our experience was perfect and it was. So the venue is beautiful the food was great and the customer service could not be better anywhere in the world.
