Deerpark Restaurant-Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
We went to Sunday Brunch and had read many good reviews about the food. We were very disappointed. First, we did enjoy these dishes. The corn-squash casserole was well seasoned and very delicious as was the Ginger Melon soup. The small buttermilk biscuits, the sausage links and the smoked salmon deviled eggs were also good. My husband loved the buttermilk ranch dressing on his mixed salad. So much for the positive part of the review. The entire restaurant was too warm. I had read that the restaurant was not cool enough and we had to agree. It was difficult to enjoy a dining experience when the room was too warm. The peel your own shrimp had cocktail sauce that was gelatinous, did not appear to be freshly made. The corned beef eggs benedict had a bland taste - not seasoned. The tomato grits had no taste - I couldn't finish them. The Texas brisket was too fatty - more fat than meat. The desserts were unimpressive - they sounded good but they were too warm. Cheesecake and mousse filling should be served cold and they were not. Our waitress was OK. She did not remove our first plates and we sat there with a table of clutter. She walked by our table several times and didn't seem to care. We had to wait for our bill even after requesting it and then it took 15 minutes to bring our credit card back. Poor service! Some dishes were good but our overall experience was not pleasant. We expected more and they did not deliver. We will not go back nor recommend the Deerpark to others.
Without hesitation, both my wife and I give the Sunday buffet our HIGHEST rating. Simply put, it is THE best buffet we have ever experienced. The food choices are many, varied and extremely high in quality. The staff kept every one of the many items fully and freshly stocked. Every item we had was perfectly prepared. Our server was very attentive, but not obtrusive. We highly recommend this restaurant, especially on Sundays.
Food was ok, but the server and people tending the food tables were very rude! A lot of them just standing around doing nothing but talking to each other, looking lost. Acted like we were bothering them to ask for what we wanted. Waitress was flat out rude. I will not be returning to Deerpark restaurant. I was embarrassed....I had friends from my hometown come down to go to Biltmore...I raved about the place and the food and the people. Boy was this a let down AND embarrassed! Won't happen again!
Sunday Brunch at Deer Park is exceptional with an outstanding menu that is remarkable. There were several items like the Corned Beef Eggs Benedict that was delicious and we were truly surprised with the flavor.
The chef has developed a menu that offers excellent breakfast and lunch choices that are not found on most brunch tables. The meat, fresh vegetables, breads and even the desserts were prepared in ways that were outstanding and made choosing very difficult.
I recommend the Sunday Brunch to all who seek something special in a special setting at a truly special estate.
We wanted a treat before our tour of the Biltmore House, and Deer Park's brunch met all our expectations. From appetizers to main courses to desserts -- especially the desserts -- we had fun trying everything and going back for seconds on our favorites. The remodeling has changed considerably the inner courtyard -- the shady trees are gone, replaced by a concrete surface because of plumbing issues -- but the interior dining area is the same. Food and service are great, and the price can't be beat. Take your friends here, and remember to make reservations early for holiday meals.
This was the best brunch I have experienced. I am 57 years old, visited 27 countries, and I am humbled to have the beautiful experiences I have had. I am blessed to be a member of the Biltmore Estate and this was without a doubt, the best brunch I have ever had. I would be amazed if anyone would be displeased with this brunch. It is expensive, but worth every penny :)
1. Need to get some air conditioning!!! Sat next to open glass door sweating in 90 degree heat.
2. Waiter made a point to tell me that my online purchase included everything but the tip even though it clearly said tip was included. He forgot to bring my drink twice while he brought drinks to other tables that ordered after me.
3. Concerned about cold food sitting out in the heat.
WOULD NOT EAT THERE AGAIN.
Deerpark is our favorite Biltmore Restaurant. The food is fresh with a wide variety of flavors and options available. Mike, at the carve station, always has a fresh made sauce available to compliment his wares! Many desserts to choose from as well. They do need an ice cream freezer as the ice bath they currently use, doesn't keep the ice cream cold enough. The ice cream sandwich station is more like cookies dipped in a milk shake.
A wonderfaul value on Fridays and Saturdays, well worth the short drive from the main house.
I was disappointed to see the court yard had changed and not having the plants, fountains, sitting benches and beautiful ambiance it once had. Now it's like looking at a parking lot. I understand it's been leveled to host weddings. I will more than likely not return because of this. It's lost its special charm.
The food was just ok. The beef was tough and hard to cut with the butter knife..the hush puppies were terrable. Our waitress was never around when we needed her. Water glasses set empty till we were ready to leave. We ask about a military discount and she said she would take it off but when she gave us our bill it had not been deducted. Then we set for another 15 minutes to settle our tab.
My husband and I enjoyed Saturday lunch after visiting Biltmore. Very comfortable restaurant, with a delicious, clean and inviting buffet. The presentation of the different buffet stations was very inviting. All dishes were labeled so there was no guessing when choosing the food. The variety of items was very good and the buffet was maintained at all times. We would highly recommend the Deerpark restaurant.
