Great new summer menu. Everything was prepared well and the service is outstanding. The deserts this time are wonderful (even more so than than usual). If you go be sure to leave room for the Key Lime Cheesecake and the Peanut butter S'mores cake. Just like a little girl that was walking by our table as they were leaving. She told her Mom it was "crazy good."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
