Deerpark is Biltmore dining as you would expect, great southern cuisine and exceptional service.
We did Sunday brunch. It was lovely. The French Toast casserole and the smoked salmon toast were highlights, but every dish was well prepared and delicious. A young woman was playing and singing at the serving area and the atmosphere was casual and elegant at the same time. Please understand that you must have a ticket or pass to enter the Biltmore Estate to dine at Deerpark, or any of the other excellent restaurants.
Cat is a fantastic server! Deerpark is lucky to have her!
My friends and I came to Deerpark on a girlfriends weekend. We toured the Biltmore & made plans to eat at Deerpark. We were greeted when we walked in by Maurice. HE WAS AWESOME! He made sure everything was perfect. Icyline was our waitress and she was excellent as well. We would definitely like to come back again another time and enjoy an event at your restaurant. The best part to me was the AMBIANCE! The weather was perfect and the food was delicious. Thanks so much for allowing us to have a great experience. Mrs Inga Coleman
Very out of the ordinary for us. The fried chicken was burned. No breasts available. Nothing was very fresh. Our guest, who use to come frequently , was disappointed. It still is a beautiful setting. The staff were lovely. Our waitress was very gracious.
We come to the Sunday Brunch six or eight times a year - Mother's Day, birthdays, fathers day and other occasions . Also, we bring guests or people new to the Asheville area for the dining experience. Several families are now pass holders, due to our introducing them to the estate thru the Brunch. Food is always outstanding.
Although we made reservations as instructed by the Deerpark answering machine (which were confirmed) through Open Table for Friday, March 16th, the restaurant was closed when we arrived. You should not be able to make reservations for dates that the restaurant is not even open. We had to find another location for lunch. Very disappointing because we were bringing a guest and we had told her how great the lunch is at Deerpark.
My daughter and I attended brunch on Sunday during her Spring Break from college. She is a vegeterian and was delighted with the many healthy, delicious choices from which she could choose. Each selection was truly a delight. No disappointments here! Reservations are a must!
Very disappointed in the quality and availability of the buffet. Same applies for some of the staff.
It was a 93rd birthday celebration for our mother. She loves Biltmore-that is why we chose Deerpark.
This was not our favorite experience at Biltmore/Deerpark. These are the comments from our table of 9:
*The table service was very good, however many of the buffet station servers were very rude-did not respond positively to questions -rude attitude., especially the server at the beef carving station.
*Many of the to be warm foods were cold.
*The foods were not replenished in a timely manner.
*The flavor of the food was not good-Some had no taste
*For the buffet price, the portions from the carving stations were very small.
Very disappointing experience. We have been to this Brunch previously with a good experience. This time was not the same. Booked 6 weeks in advance - and was given a “lousy” table.
They were terribly crowded. Food stations were running out, and the food quality was not up to the Biltmore Standards. There was virtually no seafood on the buffet, and many dishes were very bland - of mediocre quality to begin with.
Overall, they were clearly understaffed. It took us 40 minutes to get our bill, to check out (meanwhile people were waiting for our table.
The service was wonderful. The bottomless mimosa's is a great deal!The buffet ran out of several items that I was really looking forward to.
Never disappoints! Food was wonderful and service was attentive and personable. Reservation was on time and we didn't have to wait to be seated.
Great Hosting Staff. They took care of Us! Mary Jane took care of us!
The Food was the Greatest!
The atmosphere and food was excellent. Tonya G. waited on our table and she was also excellent.
The best choice when dining on the Biltmore Estate. Only open to the public on weekends and also on Fridays *seasonally". Food is delicious and the brunch/lunch is a great value.
Great food and great place for Saturday Brunch. Be careful on seat location as the place a table-ours- right on the door to outside that everyone uses to get to food. Cold and busy
Spent the day with five dear friends who I hadn't seen in a while. My sister and I have season passes and we invited four friends with the comp passes. What a wonderful day. Everyone from the parking attendants to Elaina our waitress at Deerpark were just the best. Elaina was so personable and sweet. Everyone at our table just loved her.
Took advantage of our passholder deal at the Biltmore to bring a couple with us who'd never been to the Biltmore during the day nor had eaten at the Deerpark. As always, the food was delicious (we'd been there a few weeks before with other friends). We knew just what we wanted this time around! Despite the fact that there was a larger than normal crowd, the noise level was fine and the food fabulous, especially the cola-brined fried chicken, pork roast, little neck clam and shrimp bouillabaisse, along with many other items--including the desserts, of course. The staff is always friendly and helpful, making the dining experience all the more pleasant.
YUM. We love the Deerpark at Biltmore and its only downside is that you have to have tickets to the estate to dine there, but we have Annual Passes and have been known to drive from Charlotte to Biltmore for the day just to eat there. It's great, local, southern cuisine, and we have never had a bad meal. Occasionally there are things we try that our particular tastes don't care for but with such a great buffet, move on and try the next thing. The menu changes with the season, so go more than once! The live music is usually acoustic guitar and voice of a local musician and we always enjoy the background ambiance it provides.
Sat-Sun Brunches = Nice Buffets = Good Time = Reasonable Cost.
The hostess Mary Jane is the best. She seated us in our favorite area. Our server Jennette was was friendly and did an exceptional job. Our favorite restaurant.
The meal was delicious and the service was outstanding. the deserts were top notch. I especially liked the red velvet cupcakes. The atmosphere was quiet and beautiful. It was easy to have a conversation. The musican playing guitar and singing was excellant. She sounded like Nora Jones. I would definitely recommend this dining experience.
We went to Deerpark for brunch on a Sunday with a reservation. There was a bit of delay in seating us but they had space for us to wait indoors. The food overall was very good and we all really enjoyed it. However, the service was definitely not up to Biltmore standards. We were there toward the end of the brunch hours and it seemed that the servers were tired and spread too thin. It took more than 10 minutes for a server to stop at our table for drink orders or even make eye contact for that matter. In addition, there were several items at several of the buffet stations that were empty - I understand you may run out of things but don't just leave empty containers out.
It's such a lovely setting and was such a spectacular day that we didn't let it ruin our time there but I hope that the management will take notice and do some service training!
Best place to eat in Biltmore by far! Love the food music and views. Will return! Clean place, amazing food and staff was very nice!
Love it! We’ve been over a dozen times and the cuisine is great. The collaboration of different foods makes it a hit for the whole family.
We were visiting the Estate today and decided it would be a great idea to have the Sunday brunch at Deerpark. Pretty much everyone at the property recommended it, so, we tough we were in for a treat! It was fairly expensive - $35/person but kids under 9 don't pay. We booked thru OpenTable for 12:30 and we arrived at exactly 12:28. The hostess checked us in and we had to wait until 12:50 to get seated. While we were waiting I took a walk around the restaurant and a lot of tables were empty. The hostess was very rude, and would not inform why the waiting to get seated. People that walked in were seated before us, which is something I am going to take up with OpenTable and the management.
The food: Mediocre at best. Cold steak, cold rubbery chicken, at 1pm most of the stations were empty and no replacements coming back. Honestly... the only good thing on the buffet was the desserts and I am not paying $35 to eat dessert!
The service: Awful. Waiter was gone most of the time, took forever to bring drinks, refills were not done and at the end informed us the credit card system was down and we would have to pay in cash. Why not say that at the entrance? We were able to get thru it, but, I am sure others were inconvenienced by that.
Not coming back and DO NOT RECOMMEND others to go. It is a completely rip-off.
This was not a very good experience compared to previous visits. Our reservation was not taken into consideration as we did not get seated until 2:10 PM. When we did get seated we were in the far corner and we asked to be moved. Finally, we got moved to a somewhat closer table. Much of the food was gone and after asking an attendant, more food was brought out. The chicken was not tasting good and several pieces were not cooked completely. What made this so bad was that we invited guests to eat here based on our previous visits. We explained to them that this was no where near our good previous visits.............Thanks, Bob and Marie Tipton, 7704211663.
I was really disappointed with the entrees. The meat lacked flavor. Desert was awesome! The soup was amazing. Basically, it was great except the main course.
No visit to Biltmore is complete until you dine at Deerpark Inn! They have a fantastic buffet with home cooked food. The dessert buffet is wonderful!! I love that most of the desserts are served in individual servings so you can have one of everything! Homemade ice cream is delicious and everything is made on site. We love to visit the gardens and walk on many of the trails. There is so much to do at Biltmore! Horse back riding, carriage rides, and much much more.
If you decide to visit Biltmore, you MUST make a reservation at Deerpark Restaurant! You will be very happy you did so!
My husband and I began our first visit to the Biltmore at this restaurant, and we were both very pleased that we chose to have lunch here. Besides being an incredible value, the Bloody Mary bar was a nice touch, as was the live singer/guitarist that played softly in the background. The wide variety of food was extremely tasty for a buffet. The best was the bananas flambe served with chocolate peanut butter ice cream! Our server and the wait staff was attentive in clearing our plates and filling our drinks. VERY nice time here!
Great brunch spot, Linda was an excellent server! Light music playing in the background, fun for a friends get together.
Although the food was very good. The service seems they were short staffed and the server for our table seemed to not want to be there.
Although the Saturday lunch crowd was lively, we enjoyed a relaxing meal. Our server was friendly and attentive despite the busy atmosphere. Everything we chose from the abundant buffet was tasty but the desserts were exceptional. The price was a bargain for the quality!
Buffet lunch with relatives at Deerpark on the Biltmore Estate was fabulous - so many out of the ordinary choices, everything tasted wonderful including the bloody mary, and was beautifully presented, in a nice airy area overlooking a plaza. The staff were very attentive and professional. Live music was an added bonus. One of the best meals of our trip. We did not expect such a meal in a tourist spot, especially for the price.
Delightful options on their buffet. Quality of food is very good. Passholders get 10% off, tea and coffee included.
We loved it! Great way to celebrate a Birthday. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service as always, issue is that this restaurant is getting more and more popular....good for them
We have dined at the Deerpark numerous times and always have enjoyed our visit. On this particularly Sunday they were extremely busy and apparently it was unexpected. We had reservations but had to wait almost 30 minutes to be seated. We ordered Bloody Mary's from the BM bar but all garnishes we gone and their containers empty with no sign of a refill. Food line was picked over and mostly scraps with no replenishments apparently in the works.
Needless to say we were VERY DISAPPOINTED. Service and atmosphere was lovely as usual but the FOOD SERVICE was POOR on this day. We plan to write this off as an anomaly and give the Deerpark another chance but George would have been very disappointed if he had been our guest on this day!!!
