Our experience was great it was the way we used our second day pass at the Biltmore.
Always so wonderful. This new fall menu is excellent. Compliments to all the chefs who thought it out.
Another great lunch. Service was exceptional.
This spot is extraordinary for the food, service, ambiance, and friendliness. We will dine there again. This is my favorite Biltmore dining venue.
Excellent experience, great selections, very good food
Top restaurant! It’s our favorite place to dine. Wonderful food, great service and love the atmosphere.
Food and service is always great at Deerpark. And this weekend again was no exception, it was great.
What a cool place to have lunch! Very friendly service with a wide variety of food options. Very elegant, but casual enough to feel comfortable.
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.
Beautiful setting. Could have been a little more variety. No fresh fruit.
Deerpark is my favorite restaurant on the Biltmore Estate. I have eaten here many times over the years and have enjoyed every meal. The Sunday brunch is a must do. Great food, excellent service!
The brunch was excellent with specialty mimosas, live music, and chicken and waffles.
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!
the food was fresh and diverse in offerings, the wait staff was excellent as were the servers
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!
Excellent experience of dining with tasty food and visually appealing presentation
We made the reservation for lunch from long distance, trusting that it would be satisfactory. We were all very pleasantly surprised that a buffet could be so well prepared and presented. The food was delicious and the service was very accommodating . A great dining experience all the way around.
Truly a feast for eyes and stomach. Unique flavors and pairings of food. Enjoyed every bite.
Went to Deer Park expecting that the food would be good for a buffet. Instead, the food was exceptional, especially for a buffet. The fact that this place is only $20 makes it the best valued buffet I've ever been to. It's the second best buffet I've been to by a long shot. All the food was expertly crafted and made fresh. Coffee and tea are included in the price as well. The bruschetta, sweet tea brined chicken and mac and cheese were the highlights for me for the main meal. The desserts were unbelieveable as well, about 8 different selections and I tried every one of them. I am a bit reluctant to write this review honestly as this is the best kept secret at the Biltmore Estates and by far the best value for dining options. When I go back to Biltmore it will definitely be on my list to eat here again. My wife even loved it and she is a very picky eater.
Absolutely wonderful! Beautiful buffet and venue! Phenomenal food. Loved it!
Always a pleasure to be dining at such an excellent place. The staff is amazing so is the food !!! Mark our server this time was outstanding !!
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.
The Deerpark is always a very enjoyable dining experience. We've been coming to Deerpark and the Estate for over 50 years and it never gets old.
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 would have liked to see my server more. I wanted a cup of coffee with my dessert.
Birthday brunch did not disappoint. Plenty of tasty options for all 10 of us!
Beautiful restaurant with great food. We went for the Saturday brunch and enjoyed the environment and pleasant singer. $20 for buffet was a great deal. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Best place to eat on the Biltmore Estate. The brunch is wonderful.
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.
This is my favorite restaurant when visiting Biltmore!
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!
Plan ahead and make reservations. I bet this will become your favorite too
Another great lunch. Food and service were exceptional.
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.
The service was very slow at the beginning then they rushed you to leave.
Remember this was a buffet
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.
We had a wonderful Saturday Brunch meal. There were so many choices and the food was outstanding. Thanks for a great meal.
We throughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food at the buffet. There were a wide variety of delicious food choices. The dessert bar was impressive. We especially enjoyed the guitarist who played throughout the meal.
Want to impress .... this is the spot. Best elegant special occasion lunch.
We enjoyed the live music, amazing food with great options!
The staff helped make our Anniversary lunch extremely enjoyable. Even the other guests were warm and friendly.
If you want to feel special and have a great meal,
Deerpark Restaurant At Biltmore Estate is the place to be.
