In 1979, the barn was renovated and has housed the Deerpark Restaurant since then. Additional wings were added, creating an open-air courtyard in the center. This restaurant, featuring a taste of regional southern cuisine, is also a popular setting for weddings, rehearsal dinners, and parties.
We enjoyed a lunch buffet while there. Here was the menu:
SOUPS: Pumpkin and Apple Cider Bisque; Potato and Bacon;
SALADS: Baby Romaine and Fresh Field Greens; Roasted Beets and Hearts of Palm; Bulghur wheat with Dried Fruits; Traditional Waldorf Salad
ENTREES: Herb-brined, Roasted Breast of Turkey; Traditional Cornbread Stuffing; Citrus Cranberry Relish; Maple Glazed, Smoked Loin of Pork; Chef's Special Entree du Jour; Buttermilk Whipped Yukon Gold Potatoes; Harvest Vegetable Medley
DESSERTS: Maple Pumpkin Pie; Southern Fruit Cobbler and Fresh Whipped Cream; Pastry Chef's Selection of Assorted Petit Items; Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake; Chocolate Peppermint Tart

Finally, here is a picture of a pretty Christmas tree located in another banquet room. Note the adorable little sleigh on the table beside the tree... I loved it!!!!
You MUST tune in tomorrow to hear what happened to me while at that restaurant....
Have a great day and keep the spirit of Christmas within you.
