This charming restaurant located on Biltmore Estate was originally an historic barn designed by Richard Morris Hunt.

Our Taste of the South Weekend brunches offers bountiful choices. It's an excellent setting for family dining, with children nine and younger dining for free. Paid Estate admission is required.

The venue itself is well worth the price you'll pay for your buffet. The airy open feel with comfortable seating goes a long way. Only items of disappointment were 1) no fresh fruit and 2) no clear indication of allergen information - this is always a challenge, but our daughter forgot to bring her epipen so we needed to be extra careful. Usually high-end restaurants are very good about this, so we were a little disappointed and experienced the same at other restaurants within the property.

First time eating at Deepark. It was a pretty place, but $80 for a small buffet in a small restaurant was really a disappointment. It was a Sunday brunch and mostly breakfast food with some salmon and lunch sides with a dessert table. I don't mind paying for great food, but this wasn't worth the price. Won't be going back.

Everything about the experience was wonderful. The service was really special and the food was great. I will make this an annual treat.

The food was just ok. Nothing was piping hot. Actually all the hot foods were just lukewarm. I think we enjoyed the desserts most of all. It was a good experience overall but we would not return.

This was the best buffet I have ever experienced. Every single item that was offered was top-notch. The corn and black-eyed-pea salad was spectacular, as was the salmon. I usually feel that I don’t get my money’s worth at a buffet because there are dishes I don’t care for, as well as the fact that I have a small appetite. The Deerpark dining was an exception! I highly recommend it.

We were there for Sunday brunch at 1:30. They must close at 2 because we were IGNORED while staff cleaned up. Our waitress literally delivered our check with a broom and dust pan in her hand. The food had totally dried out which made the breakfast casserole uneatable, even the breads were dried out. Very disappointing experience!

This was our first time at Biltmore but I have eaten at the Dinning Room, Bistro, and the Social Lounge at least three times each. This was by far the worst experience. We checked in two minutes after our reservation time, they told us it would be "a moment," then as we were seated across the reception hall they vaguely yelled "5 minutes" in our direction. We were taken to a table that had a neighboring guest . We were not told who our server was, if there was one, if we were free to go to the buffet, where it was (it was not visible from our far seats), etc. We asked the waiter when he appeared 5 minutes later what the deal was and were told that it was a buffet but not offered drinks or coffee until we asked where they were. As I maneuvered throughout the restaurant, staff did not let you pass first if you were already in the aisle when they needed to move, including once with the hostess leading a large group past me and I had to duck in between two seated guests because there wasn't room for us to pass each other. Many small bad things, no good things other than the food. We likely will not return.

The best omelet ever. The other food was good but not outstanding for Deerpark’s reputation. Our server was decent.

There were many food options and all were good. The music was nice but as the crowd grew, it just added too much noise.

We liked the new menu...felt that too much pot roast was served in the little bowls...we saw a lot of people only eating about half of it...loved the new soup!

For the experience I say visit. The location was perfect. The price was good compared to brunches in FL. I did however request a note for my friend having a birthday and did not get one. I had to ask which ruined the surprise. The starters salads desserts and vegetables were fantastic however the carving station and hot foods were very disappointing and dry. The omelette station looked good however we did not eat there since our reservation was at 1:30 PM.

Sunday brunch was overpriced for what was available. The best part was the omelet bar. The rest of the food was plain and bland and the choices limited. For $36.95 per person, I would have expected a better selection and better food

Not likely to return to this brunch

This has become an over-prompted but under-produced buffet brunch. To represent a "carving station' consisting of pot roast, salmon, and fresh marinated ham is underwhelming. The space is very nice, the service is good but - for the price - the experience disappointing.

We believe the Sunday buffet at deer park has been going down hill for some time now. The vegetables were over cooked. The "pot roast" was a small amount of shredded meat in a fatty gravy with over cooked potatoes. I could not eat it.

The service was good but the suggest tips on the tab are insulting starting at 18% and calculated including the sales tax. Mighty high for buffet service.

As frequent diners and passholders we were disappointed with our visit on Sunday. Many items on the buffet were not replenished and we were left waiting for many items, such as salmon, chocolate croissants and biscuits. There were only a couple of spoonfuls of many items. There was a loud group of women who were drinking seated near us and we feel the host should have asked them to lower their voices. Someone's enjoyment should not interfere with others enjoyment of the same dining experience. They were treated an elegant experience as if they were in a bar. Of course we will return, but not soon as we were so disappointed.

Buffett was almost always out of food and we had to consistently wait for new food to be brought out.

The desert selection was good.

Visited on the first day of the new fall menu. It could not have been better. The salmon was the best I have ever eaten. The ham was delicious but not at all what I expected. Instead of slices, it fell off in pieces - no salty at all. The Brussel sprouts and other vegetables and salads were great. This is a short time menu, only though the end of October. If you visit Biltmore Estate and have time to go by for lunch (buffet), definitely try it.

We go to the Deerpark several times a year and this was the best buffet menu so far. It included Salmon, Ham, Chicken & Dumplins, and Pot Roast along with many sides and desserts. Their seasonal menus were becoming predictable and this is a nice change.
