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.

There is always a LOT of food at the Blue Ridge especially for the Seafood Buffet. It is generally very tasty and beautifully displayed. Service wasn't especially great this time. My server wasn't very friendly and there were lots of dirty dishes left on the table during the meal. I also had to ask for refills on my beverages and never got a refill, even when asked, for the fresh drawn butter for the crab legs. You would think for the price of the buffet that the service would be better. It's sometime hit or miss at the Blue Ridge but when it hits, it's a great experience. It was just OK this time.

The kids buffet was lacking. Only three items - hot dogs, Mac and cheese, and baked beans. A few more items would’ve been nice as our five year old had little to eat.

Interesting that so many at the Mothers' Day Brunch were planning to wash their cars on Mothers' Day, at least judged on what they were wearing for brunch with Mom on her day. Was surprised to see this at the Grove Park Inn on this special holiday: ball caps, T-shirts, golf shirts, shorts, etc. World has changed so much that fewer and fewer people seem to own church or Sunday clothes any longer. Food was excellent.

We have been to the Mother’s Day brunch a couple of times. The food and service has always been excellent. The only complaint I would voice is I reserved our table two and a half months in advance and was seated in the upper level. I would expect to have better seating with such advanced notice. The more people in a party means the larger the bill. There were 5 of us , we expected better seating.
