Not my first visit to Grove Park's Sunday brunch and it will not be my last. The view of the Western Carolina mountains is surpassed only by the variety and quality of the food offered (an abundance offered in four separate rooms). The service was very good, the staff always attentive and friendly. It is a MUST for people visiting Asheville over a Sunday!

For a fun evening with a nice view, this is a great spot. We had much fun. It's a buffet style with some very enjoyable options. Lots of choices to pick from (it was three large rooms of food options).

The food was excellent. They did not charge my 6 year old for her meal. There is an entire room full of desserts. There was a carving station for prime rib and a risotto station. Both were great. The view is excellent. Would definitely recommend for friends.

The restaurant was extremely crowded the night we were there. The food was just okay - I definitely did not eat $44 worth of food. Twice, a busboy filled his tray too full and dropped wine glasses, shattering them around my feet. On the positive side, the view is lovely, it is handicapped accessible, and there is a large array of food. Also, because my husband at so little, they only charged me for one meal.

Service was decent, certainly not above average. The fire alarm went off for ten solid minutes when we first sat, which did not exactly set the mood. The seafood was the only worthy cuisine out of three rooms full of food. The deserts were awful. The steak, pork, and fish dishes were over cooked to a leather consistency. Out of all the fabulous places to dine in Asheville, this should not be considered. The dining experience should be top of the line for an establishment of this caliber, instead it was the single most disappointing anniversary meal we’ve ever had. Strive better, please.

A little disappointed this time at the seafood buffet. Not as many selections as the other times. No fresh oysters.

Overpriced and overrated. There was a lot of food but the quality was poor. The desserts tasted stale. They added a 20% service charge for a buffet which was cheeky. Overall a poor and impersonal experience.

My husband and I took our mom to celebrate her 87 th birthday. Molly was our server and I must say she was very attentive and friendly. She made our dining experience that much better.
Blue Ridge Tavern has some of the most wonderful staff from everywhere throughout the buffet area and hostess. The team of servers all support each other in clearing the table before you come back with your next plate. What a great example of good customer service training. Cheers to the management here at Blue Ridge for always striving for better.

While this was a very special day for us (celebrating our 57th anniversary), it's a shame that the culture is so desensitized as to attend a lovely Sunday Brunch is such VERY casual clothing. Wonder where they wear the good clothes hanging in their already-full closets?

We attended the seafood buffet on Friday night. We were disappointed in the selections offered. Hardly any sides options. We were seated very far away from the buffet and have a toddler, so it was not easy to make trips to and from the buffet. The food was just not good. The tastes were off. The desserts reminded us of the mass produced desserts found at many Chinese buffets. We will never return.

No visit to Asheville is complete without a visit to the glorious Grove Park Inn. The view, seafood buffet, and every aspect of dinner in the Blue Ridge dining room is a special treat. We especially enjoyed the crab legs, cooked-to- order Bananas Foster, abundant shrimp, and everything in between. We look forward to returning.

This is the second time my husband and I have eaten here. We just love it. The amount of food and the diversity of selections are amazing. We went to the Saturday night prime rib buffet, and it was amazing. I thought it had many of the same selections as the Friday night seafood buffet, so you don't miss out on much seafood by going on Saturday. We had reservations for 7:30pm, and there was plenty of food, and the restaurant was not full at all. Request a seat by the windows for the view! It was our anniversary, and they brought a special white plate out written with Happy Anniversary in chocolate, drizzled with a bit of raspberry sauce and two macaroons. Nice surprise!

We were greeted by a very nice young man and seated by a courteous young lady who took time to explain the buffet area. Jose took care of us at the table and was fantastic. He had a wonderful demeanor and a great sense of humor. We really enjoyed having him at our table. The food was fantastic and we had a beautiful view from our table by the window.

Thank you for reaching out. This is not the guest experience for which we are known; the solar shades had not been drawn between meals, and it is for this reason that the dining room temperature became uncomfortable. Thanks to you, we have notified our Engineering management team and put preventative measures in place to maintain a relaxing atmosphere. We have also shared your comments with the Executive Chef in an effort to improve the menu selection, and we do apologize for the inconvenience.
