Formerly where my father was a country club member of the du Pont Company and would play golf with my mother and their friends. The grounds are now available to the public and the restaurant is open to all.

We enjoyed our meal while there. It is pricey but the selection is wide ranging. I made sure not to eat too much to allow myself to visit each and ever table. Between the lamb, steak, salads, breakfast items, omlette stations, pastries and deserts, we got our fill for sure. The service was good and our waiter did a good... More

Attended a funeral luncheon that was... underwhelming! Three times family members had to ask staff to bring out more food. The food was not hot and the coffee was barely drinkable . The cash bar was outrageously overpriced. The service was unfriendly. I think all they have going for them is a decent view. I would recommend that you think... More

Was here for a Holiday party mid-week. The banquet room we were in was perfect. Great food, great service and the very beautiful location for any event!

Played golf here several times and it's become one of my favorite courses. Lots of hills and the greens are perfect. The layout is beautiful and the service is wonderful. I always love coming here to play golf. I don't mind the 45 min ride from NJ one bit!!

It's understandable how it was voted the Best Brunch! The grounds, service, and food were excellent. The selections included a Seafood bar, Omelet station, Carving station, Chopped Salad station, muffins, and can't forget the desserts! It was a great treat for the family after UD Parents Weekend. I would suggest to make reservations.

I recently attended a funeral luncheon at Deerfield. When we arrived, we immediately noticed that there were no reserved tables even though we were told that the family requested two reserved tables with place cards. Someone failed to handle that simple request. I was seated at the last table to be called to the buffet and found empty chafing dishes.... More

We reserved in advance and were seated without much of a wait, although due to Father's Day, the place was extremely crowded. Even though this was a buffet-style brunch, the staff / servers brought beverages and anything else we requested. All the staff was extremely attentive and responsive. The food offerings were well prepared and plentiful. Omelets were made to... More

I recently attended the luncheons that followed two funeral services. The service was excellent and respectful and the food very good in both cases.

Deerfield used to have a Pub & Restaurant. But some time ago they closed the restaurant (except for special events). The newly focused Pub has great food and improving service. Rob, the server / bartender tried very hard to do a good job. But sometimes he is alone, up front, during the day. Keep in mind he is also trying... More
