This charming restaurant located on Biltmore Estate was originally an historic barn designed by Richard Morris Hunt. Now transformed into a courtyard restaurant with walls of windows, Deerpark Restaurant serves a generous array of Southern style dishes and Appalachian specialties. Our Taste of the South Weekend brunches offers bountiful choices. It's an excellent setting for family dining, with children five and younger dining for free. Paid Estate admission is required.

    This was probably the last weekend they will be open for at least two weeks. It was a great menu with brisket and sliders but when they reopen, it will probably be the the "new" spring menu. I think they are still working on it. Let's hope that the virus can be controlled quickly so that Deerpark opens in about two weeks. I think the restaurants in Antler Village and the hotels are open but be sure to check.

    This is a buffet, however, the food is much better than buffet style. Everything was delicious and the service was outstanding! I highly recommend eating here next time you visit The Biltmore Estate.

    You are eating at Biltmore, not cheap. We pre-purchased lunch with a drink and gratuities, that helped a little. It was buffet style which is great but the food was just so so. Very odd seasoning combinations on many items that we did not appreciate or like, even on the broccoli casserole, sweet potatoes and house made pickles. 😝The service was really very nice, attentive. The atmosphere was quiet and comfortable and relaxing. No rushing anyone that I saw.

    My friend and I were celebrating her becoming an annual pass holder so of course we had to go to Deer Park. I had not been in many years and I will say it was even more delicious than I remembered. The staff, the food, the presentation.... all top notch. Give yourself time to enjoy this awesome buffet. We are not usually buffet folks but this is worth the time to explore.

    Sorry , but my husband and I both agree this was not a good meal. Vegetables overcooked and those with cheese gummy. Chicken had no flavor, beef was tough and this continued to desserts. These were also less than good. Cookies so hard I could hardly bite into them. Cobbler had little fruit and again a gummy texture. Okay ,so it was billed as a southern buffet... I grew up in the south and I am sorry but really not the southern food I know. My yankee husband really hated it.

    We visited Biltmore Estate for the weekend to celebrate mine and my husband’s 49th birthdays. I had tried to get dinner reservations but was unsuccessful. However, I was very much surprised and delighted that there was availability for Sunday brunch. That worked perfectly for us since we were leaving the Estate before dinner and we were able to fit in yet another fabulous meal before heading home to bologna sandwiches and frozen sausage patties. Ha! Our experience at Deer Park was something very unique for us. My husband and I had a meal where our conversation centered solely around the complexity of each bite we took. It was absolutely a pleasure eating there. We will certainly return because Deer Park is the ideal place for a special occasion and any meal with the one you’ve loved for thirty-one years is a special occasion!

    We were disappointed in the food selection. Soups were questionable, fish looked like something from McDonalds and the brisket was loaded with fat. How about some lettuce in the salad bar?Desserts were good~The candlelight dinners were so much better.

    Our family has visited Biltmore Estate numerous time thru the years! Our favorite place to have lunch has traditionally been Cedric's Restaurant. In looking at the website and checking out the menus, we decided to try Deerpark this trip. We were totally satisfied with everything! The food choices, service, and atmosphere were very pleasing! I will recommend to all of my friends to choose Deerpark. We will certainly be back. Thank you!

    Everything was very fresh and delicious. We had a wonderful server who went out of his way to make our lunch special. When we ordered coffee, the sweetener we use wasn’t available at our table. He went over to another venue to get what we asked for. All in all, it was a perfect lunch after enjoying the Downtown Abbey Exhibit.

    My husband and I had visited here many years ago and remembered a great meal. Sunday's lunch WAS NOT the same experience. The buffet was more like a pig pen and they were out of most things. Late being seated despite reservations, server gave credit card to a different table and did not split the check as asked. Overpriced for terrible experience.

    I eaten here at least once a year for the past 10 years or more. This time it was very crowded, which made it difficult to enjoy the buffet selections. The omelette station had only two workers which meant waiting almost 20 - 30 minutes to be served. Would help if they had a "breakfast" section with the traditional breakfast fare --- as it is, you had to go through the omelette station just to get scrambled eggs! Finally, the number of selections has declined except for the very large number of desserts! But at 10:30 on a Sunday morning, I have little taste for a dessert. More breakfast item (oatmeal, waffles, fruit, juices, etc) and les desserts would really make this one of the best Sunday brunches in Asheville. Omni Grove Park Inn still has the best -- but costs over $25 more per person!

    DeerPark buffet does not have foods that appeal to young children. Some food items were good but others disappointed. It is a nice place to relax and eat after lots of walking at Biltmore. It just wasn't as yummy as I thought it would be.
