The current electric power system witnesses a significant transition into Smart Grids (SG) as a promising landscape for high grid reliability and efficient energy management. This ongoing transition undergoes rapid changes, requiring a plethora of advanced methodologies to process the big data generated by various units. In this context, SG stands tied very closely to Deep Learning (DL) as an emerging technology for creating a more decentralized and intelligent energy paradigm while integrating high intelligence in supervisory and operational decision-making. Motivated by the outstanding success of DL-based prediction methods, this article attempts to provide a thorough review from a broad perspective on the state-of-the-art advances of DL in SG systems. Firstly, a bibliometric analysis has been conducted to categorize this review's methodology. Further, we taxonomically delve into the mechanism behind some of the trending DL algorithms. We then showcase the DL enabling technologies in SG, such as federated learning, edge intelligence, and distributed computing. Finally, challenges and research frontiers are provided to serve as guidelines for future work in the futuristic power grid domain. This study's core objective is to foster the synergy between these two fields for decision-makers and researchers to accelerate DL's practical deployment for SG systems.
