Deerpark Restaurant-Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
great lunch buffet for get togethers. Although some stations were empty and not refilled quickly enough. Roast beef was not cooked enough and in eatable. Grilled Vegetables not hot enough and burned. Great variety of fresh vegetables and lentils for vegan/vegetarian or plant based foodies. Still I like to have lunch there in a while.
We went for Mother's Day and they had a buffet. Buffets are not my favorite, but this one was very nice with great food. The meat eaters said the ham and prime rib was delicious. The Vegetarians liked most of the veggies with a few exceptions. The dessert bar was heavenly!. They gave every mom a rose plant which was a lovely touch.
Deerpark Restaurant is absolutely the best! Service, delicious food, atmosphere, fun location, special occasions, you name it! We love it. It is our second Sunday brunch. We came here from Aspen, CO just for Mother's Day!! What a lovely experience. Thank you Biltmore.
I love the Biltmore Estate and I love Deer Park. We feel eating at this fabulous restaurant is like eating at our own private country club with farm to table organic seasonal ingredients and a very innovative tasty menu. This works well for gatherings when diversity is important. My husband and I are vegetarian and there are many choices on the buffet for us. It is also very affordable. Anyone and everyone will have an enjoyable memorable experience at Deer Park the staff is always friendly and helpful.
What a great value! The food at Deerpark is exceptional. Huge varieties of appetizers, salads, The Carving Station, the bread table, the dessert table, and much more!
I always look forward to coming here and having Saturday lunch. No matter what the weather it's always worth while to visit Biltmore. There is always something new to see in the beautiful landscaping, and the cherry on top is eating at Deerpark restaurant.
The buffet was hard to navigate and the flow was a mess with everyone moving in different directions. There were very limited breakfast items and the variety of lunch items was standard. Felt for the price there should have been a lot more options and better organization.
The whole reason we keep our Biltmore passes is to be able to enjoy eating at The Deerpark!The food is delicious and there is always a large variety of dishes to choose from. The setting is beautiful and we enjoy the live music. It is a favorite place to go for special occasions and holidays.
Lovely brunch at Biltmore's Deerpark. We had a great meal and enjoyed every last bite of the plentiful menu. Next time I would leave the kids at home. Didn't hurt as they were free, but our picky eater didn't find anything she liked. The rest of us managed just fine. If available, don't miss the lamb BBQ and cheddar poblano grits. Outstanding. Desserts were phenomenal.
This is Sunday Brunch, not a shrimp boil on the beach. Don't serve shrimp that has to be peeled. I could hardly taste lamb in the BBQ lamb. The roast beef was overdone and tough. Salads were limited. Dessert was best of all. For the few extra dollars, the Grove Park Inn is a much better value considering the need to have a pass just to get on the Biltmore Estate. Also, please don't use the suggested gratuity on the receipts. Who leaves a 22% gratuity on an overpriced buffet where the server only brings you your beverage and the bill.
Went to Deerpark for Easter brunch. At $56/person, plus more for drinks, the buffet of lukewarm, overcooked, mostly tasteless food leaves me wondering how this restaurant stays in business in a foodie town like Asheville. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance with a central courtyard surrounded by glass doors that open to the courtyard. Table service was good, but no one seemed to be staying on top of what was running out at the buffet. The buffet line is in the front of this large space. Items in chafing dishes (grilled vegetables, mac & cheese, roasted potatoes, waffles, soup) were lukewarm to cold. And the long walk back to your table ensured that nothing on your plate would be warm when you got there. The blackened grouper was well past done, the asparagus and carrots uncutable and the mac & cheese gooey. The shrimp (peel & eat?) were good quality and properly cooked. The house cocktail sauce was tasty. The desserts, very attractive and fresh, were lacking in real flavor and uninspiring. The ice cream and sorbet saved the dessert bar. For this kind of money, I expected fresher, more flavorful and proper temperature food. Even the Bloody Mary Bar was short of ingredients to make a decent drink.
The food was fantastic. Particularly for a buffet. We have eaten at Deerpark before, but it has been a few years. Seven of us, including two children, were eating Easter Sunday brunch. I tasted most of what they were serving. No easy task, because many choices were presented. Some of it was estate raised, which is always nice. We were surprised by the cost. Due to it being Easter, the normally high price was much higher. $56 per adult plate. I believe children were $24. I was doubly surprised when my annual pass holder discount did not apply because of the holiday. I have never had it refused, even though we have been on the estate for numerous holidays. All five adults at the table were passholders. We were disappointed, which caused a sour end to an otherwise sweet meal. Regardless, the meal itself was very nice.
We love Biltmore wines (wine club member) and dining at their restaurants. Deerpark is our choice for "Special Days" like Easter and especially Thanksgiving. For us, the only negative for dining at the Deerpark is an extremely limited wine selection. If the Biltmore was a shorter drive (drive time from our house is about 2 hrs. and 15 minutes), we would definitely be more frequent visitors.
Disappointed! We are season pass holders and go the Biltmore every year for Easter Brunch. This year the food was very disappointing and blah - just no flavor at all. We read the menu prior to attending but found the lunch options even more limited this year. Breakfast options were ok (pre made waffles & omlettes) but fake Maple syrup...Yuck.
Dessert table was not properly set as there were no plates available - unless you walked back to the main dinning area. Our server, was great!. Besides the food, there were several guest were in very casual attire such as flip flops and shorts. I understand there is no suggested dress code but when you're paying those prices to dine on an Easter Sunday, well, its disappointing and it's just not what I have come to expect from Easter Brunch at The Biltmore. Lastly, we weren't allowed to use our membership discount for brunch this year - makes me reconsider my membership overall. We love the Biltmore but this time the dining and food were definitely a miss.
The service was good they could be a little more attentive. We asked her straw and she forgot to bring it to us we had asked for it again. Also we all thought that the prime rib was a little fattier than it should've been. The food was good but it wasn't excellent. The desserts were pretty tasteless except for the cobbler and the ice cream. We were not told when we ordered orange juice before we got dinner that it was not included in the buffet price and on the menu it said that coffee was 295 but when we inquired about that I have it with our dessert we were told it was a miss print and that it was free. This was a holiday weekend and very busy. To have a miss print on a menu when you're going to be that busy, it's just unacceptable .
I thought for the variety of food and the quality of food it was a little over priced.
