Gourmet treat for those looking for something different. I had the Friday lunch buffet-excellent!
I love an amazing brunch buffet, and this one qualifies. Like all things Biltmore, service and quality are taken seriously. It feels elegant. I selected this restaurant specifically because it offered a brunch buffet on Friday when my friend and I attended the Chihuly Glass exhibit, and at $19.95 per person the price is excellent. There was a lovely southern flare to the unique dishes. Lush tables, one each for appetizers, salads, sides, breads, entres, and two tables of desserts filled one wing of the restaurant which surrounds an outdoor patio. Every table has a window view and is set in white linen. Most of the patrons were there for a special occasion, but the dress ranged from casual to Sunday best. Our server was attentive and helpful, accommodating my fussy friend. I did like that the menu online matched what was served, with a few additions. My favorites were the Fried Fish, Corn Pudding, Bread & Butter Pickles, Creme Brulee, and Mango Plum Crisp. The only downside is you must purchase entrance to the Biltmore Estate to get to the Deerpark Restaurant, but it is a lovely drive through the estate and there is ample parking. They brought me a special treat for my birthday.
Awesome we will be back!! Great service awesome music great food!!
Used to love the Sunday brunch. Many of the food options are no longer available. Fried chicken gone. Biscuits & Gravy gone. The omelette station had very limited ingredients. It seems as if they are more concerned about making more profit from the brunch. Blue Ridge at Grove Park Inn costs more, but is much much better. Dessert offerings were not high quality.
I took my family and we were all disappointed here. The server was pleasant. Staff did not go out of their way to be friendly like in the past.
The ambiance is very nice, but I couldn’t even hear the performer. They moved them into the corner.
My advice..don’t bother spending this kind of money. Go elsewhere.
Waitress was very to the point. No warmth and she was not very busy. Never a thank you, just what do you want to drink and do you want a refill
A genuine treat to dine at the Deerpark Restaurant in the Biltmore Estate. Sunday Brunch is a special time in most restaurants but the Deerpark raises the bar to a very high level. The selections are varied but all from local sources. The flavors are authentic to the Biltmore Estate culinary standards. Friendly wait staff and a pleasant, restful ambience makes this a perfect place for a special occasion.
This was my second time but my Mom and daughter’s first. Our waitress was amazing and went out of her way to create a great experience! Everything was wonderful! This is a great way to experience the wonderful food that Biltmore has to offer; you get to try a little bit of everything! Or if you did like us, eat till you’re about to pop! We were also very impressed with the gluten free options! My Mother has gluten allergies and was able to fully enjoy a variety of foods, even chocolate cake! We will return for sure!
My husband and I chose the Deerpark Restaurant to celebrate our 24th anniversary. As annual passholders, we've tried quite a few restaurants on the Biltmore estate, but this was our first visit to this one. It's located in a beautiful setting. There was a nice selection of gluten-free, vegan options, and artisan breads. My husband and I both felt that the tri tip was tender and delicious. Our waitress, Shelba, was very attentive, and brought us a "Happy Anniversary" treat (see picture); the food servers and hostess were very nice as well. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance, but though there were many open tables, we were seated in a hallway next to a storage room, where there was a group of people talking (a bit noisy) and moving furniture around just as we started eating. Next time, we will request a different location in the restaurant. Overall, the buffet is a good value for the money.
Loved the many beautifully prepared dishes. The server was very attentuve and personable. The only drawback was that the area of the restauaunt where we were seating was extrenely warm as opposed to other areas. We were not offered to be moved even after we brought it to their attention. We were told there were no vents in that area.
We will definitely return as it is a great place to dine but we will be more careful about where we sit.
The Deerpark Sunday buffet is our favorite! Wonderful food, ambiance and music. The fresh flowers in the garden and the scenery add to the experience. Service is excellent as always. If you visit the Biltmore you will want to go to Deerpark on a Sunday morning.
Excellent food and experience. Enjoyed the nice ambience and great staff.
Great luncheon dining for a Friday afternoon getaway.
Superb baked trout.
Excellent buffet and staff were great. Only complaint is that I am diabetic and they didn't offer any plain fruit on the desert table. I asked for some, and it was brought to me - thanks!
Another wonderful lunch.
We had a great time. The food, wine, and mimosas were excellent. Our server, Jeanette, was outstanding!!! Even though it was a buffet she was spot on, very caring, and suggested great things when we asked. Thanks Jeanette! One down side was the water dripping onto us near our table from an overhead AC duct which I wouldn't expect at a place like this. But overall, a great experience and we will be back. It's pricey but worth it for a nice occasion.
I would definitely visit again. I loved the setting. The food was amazing and beautifully displayed. The service was excellent! We had Sunday brunch with champagne. This will be a must do on all future Biltmore visits.
The Deerpark offers the very best Saturday buffet of any restaurant in the Asheville area. All of the dishes are beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Their staff is wonderful - outstanding service and truly lovely personnel. You will feel like a guest and enjoy an amazing meal. I highly recommend this wonderful escape on the Biltmore Estate.
What a great way to spend a Friday or Saturday. Go early and see the Chihuly glass around the Estate and have brunch at Deerpark. The current menu only goes for a few more weeks. My favorites are the tri tip roast and carrot cake waffles. Trout, chicken and the salads are also great. One of the best values in Asheville on FrIday and Saturday.
The food and ambiance at this location at the Biltmore were absolutely amazing. The selection for the lunch buffet was extensive, unique and delicious. We will absolutely return.
Deerpark NEVER gets old, the Brunch Buffet is always astounding. Take a chance and go have lunch brunch at Deerpark, you wont be disapointed.
The Staff is always spot on with service, plates cleared fast waters tea drinks refilled quickly also GREAT BUFFET GOOD Quality food !
Love this place. Atmosphere has southern charm. It's open and bright, with floor to ceiling windows. The service and food are great!
We chose this restaurant for the vegetarian options and were not dissappointed. The food was fresh, well presented and included grains, beans, vegetables, nuts and fruits- a vegetarian delight.
Love the farm to table menu! I know the quality will always be tops. And they help by having Gluten Free and Dairy Free. Another highlight of my trip! I might just catch the live band with a special event!!
We really rnjoyed the simple and excellent options provided , there was not an overabundance of choices which we appreciated, the choices you had were cooked to perfection and served with a smile. You had very good choices for tasting and in some cases just pigging out. The children we observed were very happy with the food and the quailty was excellent.
Figure some folks would not appreciate the lack of grease, due to the amazing amount served at most buffets, we found this to be a plus for us and the dessert slection was amazing in both quanity and quality.
The food was outstanding with many, many selections from which to choose. The service was also outstanding as it was at ALL locations on the Biltmore Estate. Very, very happy with everything at the Deerpark restaurant.
Lovely spot for brunch. Great variety of foods including a waffle station, omelet station, variety of salads and deserts, roast beef station and a number of sides.
First visit to the Biltmore and we wanted to try Deerpark. The buffet had a large offering of appetizers, salads and breads that were all delicious. The soup was memorable. The main courses and desserts did NOT disappoint. Lots of choices for vegetarians. Their menu changes a few times a year. Met a CIA (Culinary Institute of America) trained chef who was a regular patron there. He said it was the best value in Asheville. I have to agree.
Regretfully, I called and cancelled my reservation. I apologize that it did not remove my reservation from the system. I understand my purchase is available when i am able to come next year. Thank you.
Most of the food was really good except the “pizza” (vegetables on a pie crust with no sauce). I liked everything else I had very much as well as the people I was with. What set this lunch over the top was the desserts. They had a great selection of delicious items that were all sooo tasty and interesting. Loved it
We have not dined at Deepark for a few years but when visiting last week found the food still very good and well prepared. Choices were ample and creative.
The service was a bit off the day but it was crowded with a bus tour. We plan to visit again when we are there on a weekend.
Beautiful setting but the food was very ordinary. The beef was tasteless and tough. We sampled two desserts . . . A chocolate and cherry brandy cake, the chocolate of which had a really strange consistency, gelatin-like. The lemon poppyseed cake was delicious. The Biltmore Estate Chardonnay was excellent. Our server was just barely acceptable . . .and didn’t
Smile one single time.
Always excellent food and service. Well worth the 3 hour drive it takes us to get there for lunch. Will continue to return to Deerpark at Biltmore.
We had a wonderful Mother’s Day there. Everything was excellent!
This is the only restaurant at the Biltmore Estate I would not recommend. The buffet selection was limited ( only 2 hot vegetables served with potatoes (starch) as a 3rd). They did have an abundance of bread and offered beef, fish, chicken and pork as meats. Still, I am spoiled by the other restaurants on the property and this one just didn't meet my expectation for the price paid.
A lot of good, prime rib was the high point
There was a lot of food that really wasn't my taste. Meal was pricey for lunch, but we were at Biltmore.
I LOVE to come to the Deerpark for any occasion but Mother’s Day is my favorite. I love how it never feels crowded and the we can sit and talk and not feel rushed. The food is delicious and the service is very good. I will come back for Thanksgiving!
After 11 years of celebrating Mother's Day Brunch here, this may be the last. Food selections did not offer child-friendly items, even though there were many children attending. No fresh fruits or vegetables; only waffles and desserts. Main menu items included uncooked, cold shrimp and too many composed dishes. Only redeeming feature was our server, who was great. After spending over $400 for 4 adults and 2 children, not happy.
Will really have to consider attending next year. Very disappointed....
Great food and excellent service in a pleasant environment, great for a family ocassion
We had an 11:00 am reservation there for brunch on Mother's Day (very crowded). We waited 15 minutes to be seated. Ambiance was good but the quality of buffet food was mixed. Interesting salads. Roast beef was OK but fatty. Chicken and vegetables were overcooked. Desserts very sweet. No healthy choices for diabetics. Service was very good under the circumstances. We thought the food was not up to Biltmore standards, but pricey nevertheless. Will not do it again.
We've been to brunch at the Deerpark many times and felt that it was a good value. This time, for Mothers Day, the prices were higher and the food quality and choices were mediocre at best. The seafood selection consisted of peel and eat shrimp and crab dip. The "bottomless" mimosas our server touted cost $6 on top of the $9 price and we didn't find out until the check came and we had an extra charge. Ummm... not sure that's how I would define "bottomless". Any other time I'd say the brunch was well worth it, not for Mothers Day though.
