    Great food and ambience. Our second brunch. First time was 5* all the way. This Sunday, the service was lacking. I had difficulty getting our “server’s” attention and only got a coffee refill when I went up to where the waitresses hung out and chatted to ask for more coffee

    Everything was wonderful but for the exception there was a very long hair in my pecan pie. That was a little gross. Glad it was after my main meal. Otherwise everything was outstanding.

    As always, Blue Ridge doesn’t disappoint. Walking in we were offered a mimosa! How wonderful! The restaurant is welcoming and the views are spectacular. All the food was fresh and presented in a pleasing way. Our server was on top of things as well as the other staff that made our visit carefree and relaxing.

    Mashed potatoes taste like fish, some of the salads served where drenched in dressing. For the price, the food is okay.

The Blue Ridge Room is always a treat for us and we love taking our guests there! Thank you to your warm, friendly staff who create a warm, hospitable atmosphere. You staff defines graciousness.

    Do not like going to a second party and putting in credit card info for reservations !! That’s BS!! The food in the blue ridge room was good and the servers were friendly! The tables were kind of close together you had to squeeze behind peoples chairs I think they make enough money they could take away just a couple tables !! Also my wife just said the glasses and silverware and napkins were dirty !!

    Overall very good, but we liked the Friday seafood buffet better then the prime rib Sat night this time. Loved all the meat options except the prime rib was really overdone and tough. A lot of salad and plenty of side items and desserts were phenomenal. Our server Caliope was very good. We got a seat by window, so had pretty view for few minutes before got dark.

    Have been here several times over the years. It doesn't feel as upscale as it once did, although you're expected to have reservations and can be penalized for any changes. The food was good, but some of the desserts were cold and can be bought in any store. We will always come back to the Grove Park, but may try another experience for dining.

    This was my second time in a month to Blue Ridge! We loved it the first time on a Prime Rib night, but this time things were not as great! It was still good, but I think because we were the last seating the meat was a bit dry, I went back for another piece and asked for lots of pink, and got a medium well piece that was still dry so I gave up. Some things they were out of, and the collard greens were sickly sweet, a shock to the tastebuds! The grits were awesome, the Mac and cheese was as well (I never go for for that, but my friend said I had to)! The seafood salad was different than I've ever had, and I really enjoyed it, the hollandaise sauce for the eggs Benedict was superb! We will be back, I will just make sure not the last seating of the meal!

    Very disappointing experience. We had been there in August and loved it and invited two more couples. It was embarrassing to make them spend $150 per couple on such average food. Charging $25 garage parking was new. Overall, will never go again

    This experience was magical for our family. The hotel is absolutely stunning and the views breathtaking. The buffet was so tasty and fun. Everyone could find what the like... from gummie bears to Eggs Benedict to bananas foster made fresh before your eyes. It was a New Year's Day special memory for sure.

    Have been eating here for several years and this time was disappointing. The selection of hot entrees was much less and the food was not as good as previous visits. It looked like the food area was greatly reduced and seating area increased which made it feel more cramped when getting food. Also in the past a Mimosa was included in the buffet price and this time it was extra. I understand prices have gone up but food selection and quality should not go down!!

    Although there was more than enough to choose from and all the food was beautifully arranged, the eggs benedict were disappointing (English muffin was cold and egg was overcooked), the halibut was dry, and the roast beef was over done. The atmosphere was wonderful but we felt the brunch was over priced considering the few items I mentioned. I would still recommend Blue Ridge as our opinion should not influence others - there were a lot of other items to choose from.
