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 nine and younger dining for free. Paid Estate admission is required.

Shelba was a wonderful host! Very attentive and kind!

She made our stay, and engagement, extremely special.

The food and ambiance was amazing - but Shelba made the experience extraordinary.

Sincerely,

Mr. And Mrs. Grady

The AC was not functioning properly and it was overly hot in the restaurant today.

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.

I think the food and atmosphere was excellent and we live in the area so we definitely go a few times a year! Our server did not seem like she wanted to be there so much so she was not on her A game! Overall good!

Outstanding brunch in every way. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Biltmore and this brunch topped off our food tour of the many wonderful places to eat on the Estate.

This is the fifth time I've had this particular menu, which will be ending this weekend. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed almost everything on this menu: all of the meats (shrimp, steak, smoked turkey, pork loin). The pina colada cake is absolutely marvelous, as well as many of the other desserts. We have enjoyed it so much that this time we brought friends of ours (missionaries from Uganda) to the Deerpark and the Biltmore for their very first visits. They really enjoyed not only the food but also the Biltmore house and whole estate. Way to go, Deerpark Restaurant!

Like all things Biltmore, one is treated as a member of the family at DeerPark! In an unhurried, unrushed outdoor like atmosphere, my guest and I felt as if we were the only guests! It was an awesome experience, bringing the two of us together as only a setting such as this can do! Kudos to all!

The service was impeccable and our server met anticipated our needs and provided exceptional service. The venue was beautiful, the live music soothing, and the experience overall was very positive. The food was nicely presented, and the dishes were inventive, but the overall taste was somewhat lackluster. It wasn't bad, just not on par with other brunches I have had, but overall the ambiance and service made up for it, and more importantly my dying mother in law loved every minute and that is really all we cared about. Thank you for accommodating our last minute reservation.

We chose Deerpark to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary because we have always enjoyed our experiences there in the past. So glad we did! We were greeted warmly and seated right away. Our server, Elaina Markham, welcomed us with a "Happy Anniversary" and a smile. She truly embodies the type of employee Biltmore strives to employ. The food was beautiful and delicious. What a wonderful way to begin our special day! Our thanks to all!

Desserts were a little odd. Typically are excellent, but not so much this time. Not even sure what one dessert was! Seemed like the desserts were “pretty” but not as tasty as usual.

We had a very good experience at Deer Park on Friday, Aug 30. The buffet was kept full and very clean the entire time. Quality of items was good and our server kept our water glasses and coffee cups full. We had a nice table away from the bustle of the main buffet area and away from some noisy children. The food was very good, but not excellent. This is a great place for lunch on the Biltmore estate. We will go back.

I've been a pass holder at Biltmore for years so Deerpark is a restaurant I have been to many times. The Food and service are always outstanding! However, this is the first time I have ever made a reservation (Sunday brunch). The reservation time was 11:15 we were not seated until almost noon!!! That is absolutely ridiculous. At on point I asked the host what the hold up was and she said that the earlier tables had not left yet. I find it shocking that the restaurant had not allowed enough time in the reservation for people to linger a bit after brunch. People always linger at brunch. This is not new. This can't be the first time tables stayed longer than usual. Someone else in line informed me that it was pretty useless to have reservations for Sunday brunch because this always happens!

The buffet was nice with some unique food. Everything tasted good, especially the Green Goddess pasta salad and the smoked turkey. The service was spotty. Some people looked to have an attentive server, we did not. I was told Cedric’s is the better place to go, so wish I would have made reservations there.

While everyone did a fantastic job assuring our dining experience was memorable, I would like to give an extra high rating to Maurice. He went out of his way to supervise our luncheon to the next level. We will certainly return and recommend this establishment to others!

Very nice experience overall. The food was delicious (although the Roquefort cheesecake with fig shouldn’t be on the menu). The sangria was the best I’ve ever had, and the service was top notch. We’ll definitely be back!

It is one of the best restaurants on the Estate. It is a buffet but there is plenty of variety to please everyone. Also, remember that when the Downton Abbey exhibit opens in Amherst, don't forget about Deerpark being next door. I heard this past weekend that they might open up to seven days a week depening on demand. See the Downton Abbey sets and eat at Deerpark. Sounds like a winning combination to me.

Eaten here several times. This time our server was off. Had to ask for water and then had to finally ask her to take our soup bowl, salad plates and luncheon plates away so we had room for coffee and desert. Very unlike Deerpark.
