We love going to the Park Grove. You can’t beat the views and service.

The food was great. Very well prepared and on point .

One suggestion would be to add some additional in-house recipes. A lot of what is on the brunch is eggs and stuff which was great , but some more in-depth cooking would be a plus .

We have been there on several occasions and the crablegs were horrible, soked in water for too long and made shell so soft you couldn't crack them .. its not the same from over a year ago ,,now there is half the stuff to eat and half the treats afterwards and now the price is ridiculous..definitely too high for the quality of food

CDC guidance recommends restaurants require wearing mask anytime leaving your table. The buffet at Blue Ridge had no sneeze shields to protect the food and 95% of people were picking up food without masks. There should be advisory signs and enforcement of common sense precautions.

The server said they had rare prime rib. The beef was not prime, tasted like a tenderized tougher piece of beef and was grey, not red.

The Blue Ridge Dining Room was everything you would like in a great dining experience. The food was clearly thoughtfully and artfully prepared and presented. Each dish, even sides, was delicious, often the best we have had of that particular item. The service was prompt, polished, kind and welcoming- thank you Jose! The food was placed in a large enough area that there was never a line or too many people in one place. Fine dining, beautiful setting, relaxed atmosphere, skilled chefs, and gracious service. It just could not get any better than this.

Overall although a buffet, crab legs, prime Rib, oysters half shell and ice shoot cold shrimp, not your typical buffet. The Terrace would be much nicer at Gorve Pak Inn but when you can’t get reservations anywhere in town this was a pleasant surprise and totally enjoyed.

The overall restaurant is a nice buffet style dinner. The quality of the food was above average in taste for a buffet. The host staff needs training to meet the expectation level of service at a fine resort. They are not accommodating and came across rude and unprofessional.

Looked online to check about parking cost for the Grove Park Inn. First three hours per website are free in the parking garage. So you can imagine it was a huge surprise when we arrived and for the fall and holiday season, unannounced on their website, they have a flat $25 self-parking in parking garage and $35 valet parking. Price gouging!

The Grove Park Inn overall is a very nice place. My husband had reserved the Prime rib buffet for my birthday. The staff was very nice and professional.

The food served was a disappointment to say the least. The prime rib was fatty and had no flavor. (Did not even think that was possible). The other meat options were decent at best, with beef stew being the best. I've had a better meal at the Golden Corall, for a fraction of the cost.

I ordered an alcoholic beverage with dinner, and it definitely wasnt anything special as well. For $15.00, I was expecting a little more.

Total bill $148.00 including a couple of drinks. Total disappointment!

Unfortunately we were seated next to tables with young children. When one family left they sat another in their place. Got quite loud with young ones getting restless and wanting to leave. Otherwise we had a great meal.

Beautiful restaurant. Some of the food was really good and some of it was very poor. My entire family felt the same way, which was amazing we actually agreed on the food…
The desert section was great. I could have ate sweets all evening and been much happier.

Food sometimes would get cold, I think it’s just cause other people would forget to close the lids to keep the food warm. Was a great experience otherwise and will be back.

Ok, we were there for my wife’s 70th birthday. The options were a plenty. I expected a brunch menu NOT a buffet!
The breakfast hot food was good. Shrimp & grits, scrambled eggs and bacon etc. 👍
oysters were cool, mussels were cold (should have been in a warm broth). 👎
Pastries 👍 so mixed review I guess.
