Deerpark Restaurant-Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
Overall I thought the deer park was very good. Food was amazing and who doesn’t like a great buffet. I really enjoyed the prime rib, mashed potatoes, and stuffing I got. The combo was delicious. Our waitress was very kind and attentive as well. One thing that I noticed while being there is that the room seemed a bit cold like I needed a better sweater in order to be completely comfortable. And the last thing was that they seemed to of run out of 3 different beers my husband had asked to get. Maybe they need to do some more stocking up since we were there earlier in the evening so it’s not like they ran out because it was late at night. Overall was still very happy with the food and service.
We where at Biltmore for the candlelight tour. We have seen the Deerpark on many occasions and decided to try it. It a very nice atmosphere and the food is well prepared. We will come back to try the lunch as well as a brunch very soon.
Been dining at the Deerpark for over 25 years and food is always great and very well prepared. We visited in April after the renovations & although the food was as expected, they were always out of many items & seemed to be I’ll prepared. First time ever in over 25 years experiencing this. We decided to go back on Nov 17th & food great but items out again - not as bad as April but I prefer not to make 3 trips for 3 different items. In addition, not enough wait staff. Waited for 15 minutes for a check but waiter was visibly overloaded and not her fault. Seems that management may have changed in 2017. Service & preparedness not on par for a Biltmore property.
The buffet was not as good as in previous years. The turkey was not as flavorful as the brined turkey served in previous years. Not enough variety of choices of salads, soups, and veggies. I was particularly disappointed in the vegetable choices. Whoever heard of a Southern holiday table without sweet potatoes (the sweet potato dessert was not a good enough substitute)?! We have driven to Biltmore from North GA just to be able to eat at the holiday buffet at Deerpark, but I regret to tell you that I was disappointed this year. The good news is that I will continue to be a Passholder and come there two or three times a year, but I hope the holiday menu will not disappoint me next year!
I have been coming to the Deerpark Restaurant since the 1990s and have never been disappointed. The Sunday brunch buffet and carving bar always have excellent choices. The breakfast bar has made-to-order breakfasts. I especially like the Deerpark because it is a farm to table dining experience. Most of the dishes are created with items raised on the Biltmore Estate. Passholders get a discount, another added bonus to dining on the Estate.
The shrimp and grits and the salmon was quite good, but the desserts and salads were just ok. Our main objection was how cold our table was when there were quite a few tables not being used when we came for our reservation. We both had to wear our coats for the entire meal. We told our waitress, and all she said was she was sorry and never attempted to correct the seating. ( by the way, she needs a good bit of dental work done .) We have been pass holders for years and this was not what we usually experience.
There are Sunday buffets and then there is the Deer Park Sunday Buffet. It is like walking into the Southern Living magazine, all good, all fresh and very representative of southern cuisine.
Our server was a bit inattentive and forgetful, but other servers seemed to be right on top of their customers. All in all, very good food at a reasonable price.
We love this restaurant. The current menu is a little weaker than normal. And the service was average this time, since it was mobbed in the restaurant. Every place is allowed the exception to the normal good service. We are still loyal customers and will be back for more great food and service in the future.
The fall Saturday lunch menu is fabulous. A great selection of salads, breads, and soup to start things off. The prime rib and turkey were perfectly cooked and a great selection of sides. You must save room for dessert. I recommend the apple bread pudding, turtle cake, and red velvet cupcakes to finish the meal. The staff is on-point with never a wait to clear the table or refill beverages
Great location with just the right atmosphere for someone looking for anything from a casual to a semi formal meal setting. The seating is comfortable, not cramped, and with a flowing layout for accessing the buffet. The food is delicious and with a wide variety that suits everyone from a picky eater to a food connoisseur. I just wish the restaurant was open through the week when I'm often visiting instead of just on weekends or for special events.
I've dined at the Deer Park several times and it is always wonderful. The restaurant is large and pleasant. It's never very crowded, noise level is always reasonably low with music playing. It's an excellent place for a family meal after touring the house. The buffet is always a delicious seasonal menu. There is large selection for everyone and it is a really excellent value for the money.
It was a great experience.Our server could have been a little friendlier.
She seems a little distracted, but was efficient. My only complaint about the food is that the crepes were left in the warmer too long and they were hard on the bottom. Also the stuffing was one big glump, all stuck together. Hard to spoon out.
They change menu every season. The menu is very authentic and original for the most part so definitely not for those who only love chicken tenders or pizza! We are tired of same ole stuff at any chain restaurants so we love it.
The place is very nice but casual enough that you can go in with jeans. The servers sometimes not trained on the job very well yet, but always very friendly and we haven't had any bad experience.
