Deerfield Ratings and Reviews

I had purchased gift certificates to the Sunday brunch for my family that expired 12/31/16. When we went to use them they would not allow because Santa was at the brunch and they called this a special occasion. If these gifts were good until 12/31/16, and the only available time to use them is Sunday brunch and EVERY Sunday brunch is not allowing the gift cards then shame on you for telling us they were good through the month they cannot be redeemed. Will not be returning.

We attended the Thanksgiving buffet. Staff was very polite & helpful. We had 5:30 reservations but due to crowds, we had to wait about 20 min. When we went to the various buffet tables, we found that they were out of plates. We had to settle for smaller plates just to get any food. They were also out of salad, crab cakes & one of the main desserts. For $50 per person, we think the buffet service should have been better managed & stocked. We will try another place next year.

Thanksgiving dinner was fine, although turkey was a bit dry. Lots of different foods meant we had to sample them all. Wait staff was great. Wait for seating was understandable due to huge crowd. We will return for other events.

Been to Deerfield many times for Thanksgiving & it's been very good, but this time was most disappointing. Selection of items that have been available in the past weren't available on 11/24 & turkey was very dry. A candle or artificial flowers on the table would have been nice. Had a reservation & still waited 1 hour to be seated (for 4 people).

We made a reservation for Thanksgiving. We arrived ontime, yet there were a great many people waiting in the hallway. We waited 20 minutes to be seated. The food was okay, nothing was what I considered great, standard buffet fare. The people carving the turkey and beef were cutting very thin slices, one per guest. I think my son and husband would have appreciated a more substantial serving. Service was good, not outstanding, I think they were not prepared for the number of guests. We were okay with everything, but nothing was a standout.

Thanksgiving treat, all the family enjoyed the meal and eating out on this special day. Although, busy, we did not have to wait long for our table, but we did eat early, at 1.30pm and service was excellent and buffet items regularly replaced. Would return next year.

We attended the Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet at Deerfield. The food was delicious. The service was top notch and the ballroom was perfect for an elegant yet very relaxing dinner. This was our Sixth event at Deerfield and we enjoy it more each time.

We took my husband's father to Deerfield for Thanksgiving Day dinner. The dining area is absolutely breathtaking for views with all the glass. However, we were disappointed with the turkey. It was very dry. The buffet line was not replenished quick enough. Service was excellent. I just wish the food had been better for the price. The ice cream was delicious from Woodside Creamery.

After attending Thanksgiving dinner at Deerfield for several years, this year was a disappointment. Although the price was higher, the menu selections have been pared down. The dressings, both cornbread and bread, were dry and lacked flavor. There is no longer an appetizer station. The selection of desserts was smaller. No bread pudding.
Walking to the buffet was a challenge with all of the tables and chairs that had to be navigated. It seemed more crowded than usual.
The people manning the carving stations seemed inexperienced.
The one bright spot was we had very good servers.

we had a large group (26 of us) go to Deerfield for Sunday brunch for my Mom's birthday. The staff did a great job with our large group and the food was very good. the only down side is that Deerfield brunch is a little pricey

Deerfield was a nice place for Sunday brunch. I was very impressed by the selection and the quality of the food was excellent overall. The price was a bit high, but we were very happy with the food and the service.

We love Deerfield for brunch. Our family has gone to their Christmas and Easter brunch and celebrated birthdays, Mother's Day and other events going to their brunch. The food is tremendous and the staff is friendly and welcoming. It's our only choice!

We had a reservation and we still waited a long time. Also people arriving after us were being seated first. And there were plenty of open tables. And when we start to get our food the kids buffet was all dried out looked like it had been there all morning. Really disappointed because we had been told that it was great. And our first experience was not so great. Was ok but definitely not worth a hundred bucks!

Brunch was fantastic. Great selection and variety. I was very impressed by how fresh the food was. A lot of brunch buffets will leave food sitting out, until it eventually becomes old and stale. Deerfield kept smaller portions out (especially seafood), but had an attendee there restocking fresh food as soon as it became low. I have yet to see any other brunches where someone is shucking oysters right there at the serving location. The only downside was that our 2 waiters were somewhat slow in picking up our dirty plates and refilling our drinks. With 2 servers, I would think that we shouldn't have had that long of a wait. Both server were very pleasant and helpful - just a little slow.
This was our first time visiting Deerfield for brunch. Will definitely return. Not quite sure when - as it's somewhat pricier than it's competitors. But their ad campaign is right - the best brunch in DE that I've found so far.

Very nice selection of freshly prepared food. The food quality was very good and the ambience was very nice. The cost is on the high side for brunch, but it is justified by the food quality and selection. Great for special events or family gatherings.

Deerfield has been my favorite brunch place for several years now. Unfortunately, today's visit was exceptionally disappointing. All of the carved meats were cold. The biscuits could and would be mistaken for hardtack. The belgium waffles were premade, deformed, and cold. When you could get someone to make a fresh one, it looked better, and the temperature was better, but it still wasn't very good.
The one area that the brunch did well was the pastries. The pastry chef was spot on, but the rest were just not up to normal. They have apparently had a lot of changes in staff since last year and while most of the staff was friendly enough, the food execution was simply not worth the money charged. This might have been an off day, but, it will be a while before my family returns.
VERY EXPENSIVE - FOOD AND SERVICE NOT SO GREAT
My husband and son took me for brunch on Mothers Day. The table was far from the buffet tables and it was difficult to walk around chairs with our plates. The food was fair. My husband travels for work internationally and dines out frequently with customers. We thought this might be an option since recently moving to Delaware. 3 brunches and 2 drinks was $200.00 for food that was just ok, we served ourselves by walking through a maze of patrons sitting down weaving our way past chairs. It was awful. The ran out of French toast before we even got to the buffet table. My husband would never use this place for customer visits nor will we recommend to friends or dine there again. This is my first negative review since moving to Delaware. Save your money - dine elsewhere.
Great food! Emily was a fantastic server!!!
Can't say enough about the service! From top to bottom, we were well looked after. Managers, who in some places are hiding in their back office, were on the floor looking for problems. Serving staff was extremely friendly! Cooks...COOKS! My hat is off to them! Everything I tasted was wonderful! Looking in to joining this club immediately!
We went for Sunday brunch. The food was fantastic loved all the seafood ( raw oysters, crab legs, crab cakes and much More) meat - rack of lamb and filet sooooo good not to mention their million dollar bacon yum. Everything else was good but I had my fill of the delicious protein.
I'm not a huge desert person it looked good but not out of this world. Just ok.
A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Worth the money.
So good for a special occasion. This is not your every Sunday brunch it's over the top good.
Excellent Sunday Brunch
Excellent food and atmosphere here. Plenty of options to choose from - carved meats to backed fish and a kids section with Mac and cheese! Like soup and salad? They have that, too! Or if you prefer a hot breakfast with eggs and sausage or waffles, it's all there! More desserts than you could imagine. Service attendants are very nice and helpful. Enjoy!!
Over rated Easter brunch!
This year's brunch was a bit disappointing… there was no omelet to order or any none red meats to offer except for bake grill chicken. In the other times we have visited Deerfield there was turkey and omelet to order. Also, the seafood options wasn't that much better… with bake salmon and cold shrimp/crab legs bar. As for the service… our waitress got loss several times and we had to rely on others in the area. This is my last visit to the Deerfield for brunch.
Holiday Brunch-Not all items advertised available!
Food is good but during a holiday brunch they did not have everything that was advertised. Price for the holiday brunch is 25% higher with fewer options to choose from. Service was weak and at a premium price not worth it overall. I've eaten here during an off holiday brunch and would recommend it for the price. But during a Holiday Sunday brunch at their increased rates I would not recommend!
