  • "The food was wonderful. Expansive selection and great variety. Salads as always a treat. Lots of seafood!!! Delicious vegetables. Enjoyed immensely."

  • "We dined at the Blue Ridge Dining Room and had a wonderful experience! The food, the atmosphere and the view of the mountains were outstanding, but the staff was the part of this experience that made it an incredible evening. Jason Tobin, our server was absolutely fantastic! He was attentive, pleasant and informative. We really enjoyed his supportive and friendly approach! Other staff members, including Natalie were also so helpful and available to assist us. We are sharing this experience with family and friends and plan to return to the Blue Ridge Dining Room. Thank you for the wonderful evening!"

  • "We hadn't been to the seafood buffet for quite sometime, but will definitely be back! There were lots of excellent choices. The lobster ravioli was the best. There was also a filet station that looked great, but we focused on seafood and pasta. My husband especially like the clam chowder.The desserts were also fabulous with a nice variety. We had a super nice table with a beautiful view. Service was excellent as well."

  • "Overall, the food at the Friday night Seafood Buffet was good. However, the variety and quality of seafood itself fell short of my expectations for a seafood buffet. In particular, the crab legs were extremely small, and much to my disappointment, I did not even see any scallops. The beef, however, was excellent. Also, the view was great and the service was very good."

  • "A massive display of brunch type foods and a view overlooking Asheville and the beautiful Smoky mountains make this distinction hard to beat. This restaurant is one of my family's favorite destinations when we are in the area."

  • "Ate here in October and it was good. Had dinner this weekend and it was spectacular. The Omni group has decided for quality over quantity! Although an abundance of choices are here the food is excellent and displayed with style. Between my husband, my sister in law and myself we probably tried everything. My husband us a vegan and he was thrilled when the chef made him an extra dish. With one exception being a very watery fondue, the food, the service and the ambiance was a 10!"

  • "Enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner together at the Friday night seafood buffet. The service was great; the scenery perfect. While the salads and main entrees were excellent, I thought for the price they needed a little more variety in sides (vegetables, starches, and breads). Also, although the desserts are lovely in presentation, the taste was mediocre. The cakes and cupcakes were dry and uninteresting, the key lime tart lacked tang, etc. Overall, it was still a lovely experience."

  • "This was a lovely buffet but quite expensive. There was seafood but no fowl of any kind unless you consider the fried chicken at the chicken and waffles as fowl. Next time I will eat at one of the other restaurants at the Grove Park Inn because it was not worth the price when you are someone that does not overeat."

  • "We invited our friends form Knoxville to join us for a dinner at Blue Ridge Dining Room. We all enjoyed the food, especially the crab legs, fille mignon, and grilled vegetables. The wine was excellent. Should I say that we ordered the second bottle? We were also able to watch the fire works in downtown Ashville. It was a spectacular dinner."

  • "We live in FL and have had the buffet 4 other times. One year we drove their from FL just for an anniversary dinner. The menu/food has gone from spectacular to just good. The crab cakes were not very tasty and the salmon was dry. The service on the other hand was excellent."

  • "My boyfriend and I were staying at the Grove Park Inn and ate at the Saturday night Prime Rib Buffet. It was delicious. So many options for cold appetizers, warm soups and entrees buffet, and a delicious dessert buffet. Overlooked the entire inn's property."

  • "The food was very good. I was there for the prime rib buffet. The prime rib was good but it was only 1 of several entries. A good variety of salads, and other entrees to choice from. Everything was good. Food spread out so people were not crowded. Best part it the view from the huge windows overlooking the golf course, and with a view of Asheville and the mountains. A very pleasurable evening."

  • "This is a great place for 'brunch'. It is served from noon until 2:00 p.m., so later than usually found for a brunch. There is a huge selection and several stations of made to order food such as omelets and crepe suzettes. There are 3 rooms of food - cold collections from salad to fruit to peeled shrimp, hot food with everything for breakfast plus things like smoked Gouda mac & cheese and sliced ham, then the third room with a truly outstanding selection of deserts. Everything was wonderful including the service. The dining room is on the back of the hotel several stories up with a very lovely view of the grounds and the mountains in the distance."

  • "When my sister agreed to fly to Asheville for her first visit, my wife and I quickly made a reservation for dinner at the Grove Park Inn in this lovely restaurant. The Friday night seafood buffet featured a fabulous array of hot and cold seafood including a fantastic fish taco station and freshly prepared mussels that were a genuine highlight. Coupled with Asheville's finest views, the Blue Ridge Dining room buffet is a can't-miss choice."

  • "I was surprised by the lack of lunch entrees. With a noon seating not everyone wants breakfast items. The ham was delicious, the chicken was good but that were the only two non breakfast offerings. No beef or seafood. Shame on you GPI."

  • "I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable time than I had at The Blue Ridge Dining Room. The decorations were marvelous, the food superb, and the service fabulous. You have an ideal hotel and staff. I don't think we'll ever forget our dinner since it was our 14th anniversary and my husbands 71st birthday. It is nice to see that The Grove Park Inn is GAY friendly."

  • "This was definitely not your typical buffet with dried out eggs & soggy home fries. There was everything from a gourmet omelet station, to a seafood bar with oysters on the half shell, to a variety of salads, and hot options like pan seared trout & citrus braised pork loin. They even had a mini kids buffet with homemade pizza and chicken fingers. The dessert room was something amazing like it was out of Willy Wonka including jars of old fashioned candy, every pie & mini cake imaginable, and an ice cream bar with any topping you might want. Great job to everyone at Grove Park for making Mother's Day special for all the moms!"

  • "The food, service, view and atmosphere were awesome! We took my Mom for Mother's Day Brunch and it couldn't have been better. We drove from Lexington, SC and it was worth the drive. "

  • "We had family gathered in NC for a graduation from WCU on Saturday and Mother's Day. We came from Florida, Indiana, Eastern North Carolina and Asheville. What a better place to gather to end the weekend than the beautiful Grove Park Inn. The food was fabulous, staff cheerful and attentive, and the view from the Blue Ridge dining room is spectacular. Seating 14 people ( 5 - 72 ) can be a challenge, but Colleen worked with us and found a perfect spot. We enjoyed the grounds following the brunch and said our farewells. We will be back! "

  • "The food for the mother's day brunch was basically luke warm to cold in all the hot serving dishes. The only hot food I found was the omelet bar. There was a very limited amount of cheese available. There was only 1 kind of meat at the carving station. For the money this meal was way over priced."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were concerned that the Mother's Day brunch would be overcrowded, but the Grove Park did a nice job of controlling numbers of diners. Food was fantastic - and extremely plentiful! Servers were attentive, any requests met with prompt responses."

  • "I have been coming to the Saturday night Prime Rib Buffet at least once a year for 3 years. It is a little expensive, but the food has always been amazing and combined with the spectacular views and great service it has been worth it. This year the view and the service were great as always, but the food has changed. Most of the choices on the hot portion of the buffet were either sub-par or just plain bad. The prime rib was mostly fat and gristle, the edible portion was a little tough. The fish was bitter and quite fishy tasting. The lamb was very fatty and tough. The chicken was mushy. The roasted summer vegetables (zucchini, squash and carrots) were almost raw. The rice and couscous dishes were very dry. We probably won't be back."
