This was our first time at Grove Park Inn and it was outstanding! Everything about our experience was wonderful and we highly recommend the Sunday Brunch.
We would love to return again soon!

We have been there many times, and this time we were very disappointed. The selections were just sort of weird, and the desserts were extremely disappointing. the chocolate mousse did not even taste like diet chocolate pudding. Mousse was false advertising. If they are cutting down on sugar content, and cutting down on decent entrees, they should cut the price. The ambiance and service were great as always.

The experience was was good, Jason and Keisha took good care of us. And it was very pleasant until two large tables of people came in and they had left there indoor voices
Elsewhere. Yelling and talking extremely loud. We had a table of 5 and couldn’t hear each other. It made us cut dinner a little short. As it became unpleasant.

Food was good and the view was beautiful. The service is what makes this place five stars! I left my jacket after dinner and they called me and held it until the next day even though I was not a guest at the hotel. Our waiter was also outstanding.

Everything about the experience was positive with particular attention to the service and quality of food served. The restaurant was busy at this time on a Friday evening but the buffet was continuously replenished, the wait staff as well as the kitchen staff saw to every detail. The professionalism at all levels was particularly apparent. An extra special touch was getting to meet one of the chefs who walked through the restaurant and made certain to stop at each table and truly engage each diner. Well done !

Service was very good and very professional. Good as always is excellent with a large variety during the Saturday night prime rib buffet. We enjoyed our visit, however desserts this time feel a tad short on quality of the cake based desserts. Seemed dry compared to prior visits but did not take away from the experience.

Food was amazing. So pleasing to the eye and most scrumptious to the palate. I, or should I say we will be back. Dont necessarily like buffets, but Blue Ridge Dinner Buffet was awesome. I skipped breakfast due to an appointment, but next time I won't miss it. Thank you for such a pleasant experience and delightful food. A taste explosion with every bite.

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!

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.

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.
