Sunset Terrace - Grove Park Inn
Fantastic views!!! Adult mealsFantastic views!!! Adult meals fantastic, but Kids meals were very poor for the price!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy daughter and I were celebratingMy daughter and I were celebrating her college graduation. We sat right at the porch wall, overlooking the beautiful mountain vista on a gorgeous, warm evening and watched the sun set while eating a delicious meal! Our server was professional and friendly. Perfect night!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGeat Expectations - NOT!!!The view is God made therefore it was beautiful and breathtaking.
Menu was ordinary.
Desserts - have had better at lesser frestaurants, were that of cafeteria style.
We were seated under heaters while other tables for 2 were available.
We were charged a 20% service charge as if we would have left without leaving a hefty tip. It is obvious they are not confident that the customers will be satisfied therefore, by adding the sesrvice charge it is guaranteed a tip is left.
We left additional tip for the waitress, it is not her fault she works at the ST of the GPI.
My meal was very hard to cut and chewy.
Parking was an additional $7.
My drink was delicious but expensive. My husband's first drink was great, the second drink was watered down.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur 38th Anniversary WeekendFirst allow me to rave about your staff. Mr. Trevor Allen was absolutely outstanding in his willingness to assist in answering our needs. He took my wife and me in hand and largely due to Mr. Allen our dining experience at the Sunset Terrance was made more memorable. Then there was Sidney our waitress/server. Her personally and friendliness coupled with great professional awareness provided another memorable step on our ladder for a successful evening Grove Park Inn. The food was exceptional. I am a steak person and the rib eye was one of the best I ever had. My wife and I fell in love with your light flakey biscuits. I'm going to try my best to duplicate the recipe. I hope you use the biscuit in a strawberry shortcake offering.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMwait staff & chef not on same pageTo begin, we ordered the Caesar salad to share. I ordered rack of lamb, medium rare and she ordered the lobster tail. We also ordered the fingerling potatoes and spinach with egg to share. To begin, what we each got was a small Caesar salad and a half of a lobster tail. Duh! So the wait staff took it back and we then received the correct Caesars salad. When the entree arrived, rack of lamb was cooked well done not medium rare. Duh! Waiter took my whole plate of meat, potatoes and spinach and sent it back. The manager on duty brought back another plate with the rack of lamb correctly cooked but without any of the side dishes of spinach or potatoes. The waiter noticed this and brought another order of the potatoes and spinach. Not cool!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSunset Terrace just reopenedSunset Terrace just reopened after undergoing a bit of a facelift. Honestly, I didn't notice a big difference, which is a good thing. It is still a wonderful restaurant, with a view that is hard to beat. It's basically a steakhouse, so not exactly a creative menu, but everything I've ever tried has been very good. My only complaint is they have a very high corkage fee, $25. I can't imagine they have many guests that bring their own wine, and given how much the entrees cost, it's not like they are taking a bath if you don't order wine off their list. And since most guests are staying at the hotel, you could just order several things to go, go back to your room, or pick a quiet spot on the grounds to eat and enjoy your own wine.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMhistoric settingLovely evening in a wonderful historic place. However, very pricey drink, food, parking fee. If you can splurge, then save for a special occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience!Everything about our dining experience was great! The service, view, weather, wine and especially the rack of the lamb....OMG!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryMy husband and I went to dinner here for our 10 year anniversary dinner. Service was wonderful, the portions were large-definitely getting your monies worth here. We were very pleased with our choices. Gorgeous views at dinner as well. They made it a very special evening for us as well.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible atmosphereWe really enjoyed the dinner. Definitely higher priced than most but you are paying for an incredible setting at the basin of the mountains. It's a postcard picture while you are eating.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
