We have been to the Blue Ridge Buffet before, but I really enjoyed it this time. Everything was delicious and high quality. My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary, so that may have added to our good feelings!!

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.

We had hoped for more variety in the seafood. The two hot fish options were good, the crab cakes were over done. The poached shrimp and BBQ shrimp were excellent, the crab legs were filled with water and not worth the trouble. The flank steak was excellent, but we were there specifically for seafood. Perhaps a Jambalaya or Newburg would have been nice. The smoked trout was very good and I added it to my salad with wonderful roasted veggies. The salad section was excellent overall. We're GF, so as usual the desserts weren't exciting, but we're used to that. We had a nice walk around and took some beautiful pictures. We'll probably come back again some time.

My wife and I were at the Grove Park to celebrate her birthday. Our favorite place to eat is the Blue Ridge because our experience there is always so pleasant. The staff goes out of their way to insure that everyone is having a great time and the food is fantastic. My wife and I had a wonderful evening.

The food was very mediocre. Fish was tough and over cooked. No hot shrimp options only cold. No fresh fruit. Desserts were pretty but not truly flavorful. The chocolate mint cake had no mint flavor only green coloring. My friend agrees. Would not go again.

EASTER BRUNCH - April 21, 2019

The only criticism that I have is the lack of a more selections with the bread station. There was only 1 bowl of rolls and 1 bowl of Sweet Potato Scones and English Muffins. The selections for all the other stations were phenomenal.

Highly recommend our Easter Brunch experience at the Blue Ridge Dining Room. Beautiful views of the mountains and trees; a large variety of selections - seafood; lamb; salads; scrumptious dessert table. The best part of the meal was our server who took excellent care of us. Completely professional and gave us inside tips as well.

Our Asian waiter was pleasant but didn’t take time to listen to us and could not understand our needs. The noise and children and folks not dressed for a dining room affair (even baseball hats and flips flops) made us feel like we were at a 3 ring circus. We won’t go there again on a weekend night. It’s sad the Grove Park doesn’t adhere to the former standards.

Crab very salty
Desserts not up to far
Would not recommend

The Brunch Buffet ends at 2:30, but they allow reservations for 2:30. You guys should cut it off at 2pm. Some of the items had already been put up, all of the signs labelling what was what had been taken down.... The server was FANTASTIC and the staff were, for the most part, friendly
Food was pretty good, I'm sure it would have been better if we'd had an earlier reservation. If the buffet ends at 2:30, you really shouldn't take reservations for that time.... that's really my main complaint.

For the price , I expect better quality food. The oysters and mussels were not edible, fried shrimp were excellent, cold shrimp was a hit and miss( some were fresh, others were somewhat mushy). Excellent salads, catfish, and crablegs. The selection of foods was vast, but I would say do it right or not at all and remove a few items because quality is always better than quantity.
