Deer Park Tavern
waitstaff was not good. We had no spoons for coffee/tea and had to ask and then wait a long time. Food was slow to come out. Water for the tea was tepid. I had to ask for hot water. Plates were not cleared. I saw the waitress taking care of other tables but not ours. I had my sisters and my mom and a family friend and we were sitting for at least 15 minutes with dishes piled everywhere. I had to leave the table and ask her to come over. She cleared TWO of the 5 places and never came back. I had to ask a second staff member to help me. And we had a reservation! Not ok.
Great Sunday brunch and Bloody Mary bar!
We had a family member who uses a walker with us. We were seated at a table near the door, which was very helpful. The host was tactful and kind.
Our waiter did a fantastic job—friendly, helpful, and attentive. The food and drinks were delicious.
Our server Kelly was outstanding. The food however was mediocre Mahi tacos very bland, they were served with NO salsa or avocado as stated in the menu. My wife had the shrimp risotto. Risotto was not creamy at all
Our waitress wait great, she was doing the best should could. The hostess (another waitress) was low energy and rude (there were 5 of us, she gave us 8 menu's and at least 12 sets of silverware because she couldn't be bothered to count.....) The kitchen was very slow. Food was decent, drinks were cheap. So it was "ok". Also the tables are VERY small.
Always a great place to eat! I had the tuna sashimi salad and, as a sushi-lover, I would rate it as excellent! I love the ambiance and the staff is friendly and efficient. Both lunch and dinner is superb!
Great waitstaff, and plentiful food - not gourmet but a solid brunch and a fun atmosphere
Good brunch near UD!!
Historic tavern setting. Food was tasty, and great prices for basic rail drinks. The tables and chairs were a bit wobbly...really is an easy fix that should be tended to. The waitress was attentive and responsive. Food was slow to come out, but was a busy weekend for the town. We will try the restuarant again.
Waitress was very accommodating with special requests and answering questions. Food and bill were brought quickly even though it was a busy friday night. Tuna sashimi and salads are very good here, and free popcorn is a favorite.
$4 Bloody Mary bar is always a good way to start a Saturday. The omelettes were delicious. My husband had the Fajita omelette and I had the mushroom and cheese omelette. They were both cooked perfectly and came with a choice of toast and Tater Tots!
Just wondering why after using OT to reserve a table I was not awarded points.What's up with that?Our experience at Deerpark was very good,always a go to restaurant for us!
Had the roast beef sandwich and the jambalaya. The beef in the sandwich was very good, but the slice of unmelted cheese sitting on top was beyond tacky and I just took it off. Instead of fries, I opted for the baked beans. They came out in one of those little condiment cups - and it was only half full. Please - they were baked beans - what a disappointment. The jambalaya was good, but once again - didn't get much especially considering the price. The food was just way overpriced. The service was acceptable. The décor needs an update. Yes, it's an old building, but the tables still need a refresh - all worn out.
Great place to grab drinks and burgers while on campus at UDel.
Great service. Waiter was very attentive.
I am very pleased with their breakfast menu and plan to visit again. I am less impressed with their lunch menu.
The food was great, we had a great time, we did have a bit of a wait before our order was taken, but overall, we will be back again. The atmosphere was lively!
Great outdoor seating. Great food. Good prices. Popular spot for college kids and area locals.
Fun college town atmosphere and good food...that's all you need!
Have been eating at Deer Park for the past 4 years while visiting my daughter at UD. Have always enjoyed our meals here, especially The burgers and quesadillas. The drinks are good too! The service has always been good, and we enjoy the pub-like atmosphere. It’s nice to be able to make reservations.
Great food and friendly service. The burger was cooked perfectly. The brisket sandwich was stuffed with meat. Every one enjoyed their meal. We will definitely be back.
First time there and will be back!! What a great place and food was great!!
Great to have a live band there for Brunch, food just so-so as well as service.
I didn't have to wait to be seated and the service was awesome. The food and drinks were great and the prices were excellent. I will definitely return soon!
Had the French Toast it was very good .
Maybe .. have something else with it for the price .
Like ..fried potatoes or tater tots .
Went for Sunday brunch. Simple menu and food was great.
We stopped in for brunch on a Saturday afternoon. The Bloody Mary Bar was fabulous! I had the Tuna Sashimi salad. The tuna was fresh and cooked perfectly. The greens were fresh as well. My husband had the Frittata which he said was excellent. Would highly recommend.
Delicious free buttered popcorn. Very greasy fried mozzarella that tasted like they fried it with the fish. Tuna melt on cucumber and rye was good but also very greasy with lots of herbed mayo. Overall, about what you expect at a college bar, i guess.
Campus hangout near university of Delaware. Good burgers and salads. Very slow service. Best to go at time when students are on break. Good beer selection.
Had a great family brunch. Nice blloody Mary bar. Good service.
Family get together
Me and a few colleagues met there for lunch. The food and atmosphere were superb, but the speed of service was slower than expected, considering it was not crowded.
We were doing a 'second chance' because the food is good but the attitude is lousy. Last time they claimed not to have our Open Table reservation. This time we were stuck in the bar at 'pub' table despite another Open Table reservation. It appeared there was plenty of room but we were given no choice. Our server appeared to be particularly busy but other servers were standing around and gabbing.
I would recommend to Open Table to discontinue your relationship with Deer Park Tavern. They are apparently busy enough to not need the reservations
Great atmosphere! Went for the first time for brunch and truly enjoyed the food and customer service.
Great! Cheap drinks good food.
First time at this establishment and I loved it. Nice beer list, great atmosphere and service. Building is classic.
tHE EXPERIENCE WAS VERY PLEASING WITH A COMFORTABLE SETTING. THE RESERVATIONS LEFT US WITH THE COMFORT OF NOT HAVING TO WAIT FOR SEATING. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD, TASTY AND HOT. BLOODY MARY'S PREPARED BY THE STAFF WERE EXCELLENT. REASONABLY PRICED AND GREAT SERVICE THE WAITRESS WAS THERE BUT NOT IN A RUSHING WAY. WE WERE ABLE TO HOLD A CONVERSATION WHICH IS DIFFICULT IN MANY PLACES . LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR NEXT VISIT.
Breakfast on Sunday - always a nice brunch with good choices of food and live entertainment too. The wait staff is friendly and the service is good. I like coming to this Newark establishment.
Someone recommended this restaurant to me. We didn't go during brunch and ordered off of the regular menu. The food was good. The place had a bad odor. They also had a popcorn machine, and the popcorn was actually great. The service was okay.
It's not the Deer Park I remember.....nachos were totally BLAH - no lettuce or olives. Soups were pretty good.
