    The buffet was a bit of a surprise. We have been to the buffet before and there was always King Crab legs on the buffet. This time, we were not so lucky. While there was some seafood (shimp, mussles, etc.) nothing is as special as King Crab. Also, while they were offering mimosas at the entrace before the buffet, I was not quite ready for a drink, but requested one after being seated. I was suprised to see that I was charged for a drink that was offered gratis in the lobby. Before making another visit to the buffet, next time we will check to see if our favorite is being served.

    Quantities were impressive. Some of the items, however, did not appear freshly prepared. For example, the tuna poke, the tell-tale being that the cucumbers were shriveled, plus, it was over- marinated. Many dishes were very filling, probably too much so, so I did not get to sample everything. I enjoyed the shrimp bisque, which I'm not sure many others discovered, as it was kind of in a corner by itself. The roast beef slices that I got were well done, temperature wise, and full of gristle and fat. I imagine that if I had arrived a bit later, that the center of the roast would have been more to my liking. The shrimp were good, but I had read online that the buffet would include crab legs. There were none, which was a disappointment, as that's actually what enticed me to go through all the trouble of paying an exorbitant fee just for parking, along with the pricey amount for the buffet. I don't feel I really got my money's worth. However, there were several excellent salads, my favorite being the berry salad with pecans. The the main dessert, which was prepared as one watched, was Bananas Foster. It might have been good, but I didn't try it because the bananas were sitting out in a huge stainless pot, already peeled for some time and smelled overripe, which was kind of a turn off. The prepared desserts all looked good, but the only one that I allowed myself to eat was a pecan tart with a cookie type chocolate base. It was quite good. My server was excellent. Overall, I feel that the attempt at exclusivity at this resort in charging day visitors or diners such a high fee for inconvenient parking serves to alienate local clientele. Granted, I'm sure it takes ungodly amounts of cash to run a historic resorts such as this, but it would go a long way with locals to make this place a bit more friendly to restore favorable opinions and referrals for dining and lodging here.

    For the cost of the buffet which is the same at 5:30pm as it is at 7pm, I feel that the GPI should do a better job of replenishing items. Food quality seems fair at best for the price.

    This is not my first time visiting Blue Ridge for brunch. This time was not the best. The food has been better in the past. I very much enjoyed the seafood. It was extremely hot in the restaurant. We were seated by a window and the sun was coming right in on us. They did lower the blind some but it did not help. Also, they only accepted cash. This made it very difficult because the price of brunch for Easter was not posted on their site. I tried to co tact them but nobody responded to my message. Parking was cash only as well. I don’t know how a resort can run like that. The prices are very high, which I knew But my husband and I took $300 in cash and we were almost short. That is a bit ridiculous.

    This is the second time in two years We have eaten brunch at the Blue Ridge room. It is a spectacular restaurant. The food was phenomenal, and the service was outstanding. You cannot beat the views out the window, looking across the valley into the Blue Ridge. The price was incredibly fair for the amount and quality of food at this brunch.

    We just love the Blue Ridge! This was our first time for dinner (we usually do Sunday Brunch) and it def lived up to expectations. I could have been happy with (just the) shrimp, crab legs, and carved to order prime rib…not to mention bananas foster…..but add in 3 ROOMS of additional food choices and it’s more than worth the cost. Think you “don’t eat that much”? Go anyway. The gorgeous view and pleasant, professional service make it an experience to remember at a good price. TIPS: any table in the lower dining room has a nice view, so don’t worry about an actual window table, AND be sure to tell them if it’s a special event.

    Omni park grove is an amazing place to see rich in history. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Expect to valet park ($35). There isn’t any parking. We went to buffet featuring prime rib. Husband said it was very good. I went for the crab legs—which were very disappointing. Too small to even work. Brussels sprouts with blue cheese was amazing. Short ribs were also good, but a little over done. We are way too much! Go to the bars beforehand and get a Smokey Old Fashion. Amazing.

    It is too hard and stressful to park and then to actually find the restaurant. And then we got lost on the way out too. We had to ask multiple people on the way in and out and they all laughed at us and said, "Yes, this happens all the time" or "We hear this a lot." Yet, they do nothing about it. The staff at Blue Ridge itself was friendly and professional but the price of the food was ridiculously high and the stress on both ends was not worth it at all.

    When they were taking us to our table, the introduction to the buffet was not done in a sophisticated manner. We were celebrating our anniversary and expected a little more high-end based on the prices and location. The food was sub-par in quality and was not hot. The server was not very attentive. They knew it was our anniversary and the server brought a dessert plate to our table after we ate dessert and it was a cupcake and macaroons. Seemed really cheesy for a sophisticated restaurant. If the hotel was not so nice I would give this experience 1 star. Definitely would not recommend. The Great Hall bar food was way better.
