Deerpark Restaurant-Biltmore Estate Ratings and Reviews
As usual the Biltmore restaurants serve good food. However at this visit to Deerpark, the food was VERY SALTY. We do not eat much salt because on really good food, you don't need salt and it is NOT HEALTHY. If Biltmoe wants to get into healthy, local, estate raised, farm-to-table dining, then they should not add unhealthy ingredients like salt. There is a salt shaker on the table for people who want more salt on their food. Even the roasted turkey was very very salty. We enjoyed our visit otherwise. Final comment: far too expensive.
A lot of the buffet dishes were cold. The food might well have been tasty but with congealed cold sauces, they were frankly unappetizing. Because this was Father's Day, the charge for the meal was more than double the normal price. As far as we could tell, the only difference between the Father's Day brunch and the normal brunch was the roast beef. So we made sure to have some of the beef - since this dish justified a $22 a piece uptick in price. It was tough and we couldn't chew it. Bottom line - cold food and a bill of over $100 - no alcohol - no way would I go here again on a holiday.
Deerpark Restaurant has a new menu for Saturday lunch which is served buffet style and everything that our party of three tried, we loved. Go there hungry as there are lots of excellent dishes to try from several different food stations. The first one had several different types of salads and dressings, potato salad, soup, fresh fruit, several types of pickles and condiments. On another table, they had corn pudding, potato planks, mac & cheese, a table with bloody mary mixings, a table with several types of breads and rolls, croissants, herbed butter and jams (try the tomato jam and interesting mix of sweet and sour), a carving station with prime rib and smoked turkey and 3 dessert tables with home made ice cream and sauces, cheesecake, layer cake, several types of tarts, cookies, chocolate brownies etc. Even with small servings, we couldn't try everything and what we did try, was delicious, had interesting combinations of flavors and was beautifully presented. Of course the Deerpark atmosphere in the old horse stables is really beautiful. And at $19.95 per person it is a bargain. If you're an annual Biltmore pass holder you get a discount so be sure to bring your card. Highly recommended!
We didn't know when we made the reservation that you had to have tickets to get into the estate. It would have been nice if someone would have told us. So we didn't get to Deerpark. We are locals , so we are tired of the biltmore estate, but would like to dine at deerpark. O'well
We had a wonderful Sunday brunch with old friends. Noise level and acoustics allowed for easy conversation. No one hurried us, so we were able linger after our meal for good conversation. Access to Biltmore Estate is awkward on a busy day. People at entrance kept insisting we had to buy ticket to go to Restaurant ($65/head!). Finally found a gate person who radioed the restaurant, confirmed we had a reservation, and waved us through.
Deer park brunch is a long time favorite of ours. The food is always good and there are interesting choices. This time though the service was poor. Our server spent a lot of time chatting at another table and not taking care of basics (fresh coffee, clearing plates). We'll definitely go back though, and assume this was an isolated incident.
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.
Overall, pretty good. Little disappointment with some food items. (P/Rib cold/tough, asparagus cold/tough, potatoes mushy/cold).
Service not up to par.
Love this place and been here so many times. Way more 5 star winners than losers.....
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.
We were anticipating changes to the decor (since it was closed for renovations), but didn't see anything significantly different. Not a problem- food quality and selection was great as usual.
Extra dessert options were a big hit!
The Lunch buffet was incredible. We enjoyed every course from soup, salad, entrees to desserts. The wine and Bloody Mary were also wonderful. Best value on the estate for sure with such variety of food so well prepared. Loved every bite!
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.
