    Had the fabulous brunch with 2 friends. Neither had ever been to the Grove Park Inn. They both loved the facility and really enjoyed the views from the Blue Ridge and the food was amazing. The wait staff were excellent and energetic. Even the food handlers were wonderful.

    We took our mother for her birthday. Our table had a panoramic view of the mountains to begin the experience. We were greeted by our server Jason who immediately wished Mom a happy birthday. Soon we met Jonathan who assisted Jason. Both gentlemen made our experience exceptional. The food was outstanding with so many options that there is no way anyone should leave hungry. We all look forward to returning to Asheville and most especially to Blue Ridge. Thank you for making Mom’s special day so memorable.

    Poor quality food for the price. No red meat options at the buffet. Outdated setting. Some servers wearing masks, some not. Masks are now outdated as well and only worn by the sick and infected so it’s not a good look for your waitress to wear one.

    Blue RidgeResponded 4 days agoThank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback based on your experience. We apologize that the buffet did not meet your expectations. Should you choose to dine with us in the future, we recommend trying one of our other three signature restaurants, including Vue 1913, Edison or Sunset Terrace, open seasonally.

    I went online to see what the menu would be and there was no list. I brought my elderly mother to celebrate her birthday. Sadly, it was seafood night and she has an allergy to shellfish. Although we didn’t have a horrible time, I know she did not eat $50 worth of food and I felt bad that I was not able to prepare better. On another note, My kids loved the crab legs.

    We were there for a birthday and it was truly enjoyed. Food was good and hot. Service from Cammy was great. Keisha was my server the previous Sunday and both of those servers were professional yet approachable. I have been there 2 Sundays in a row so probably wont be back anytime soon. There is no way for me to eat the amount I paid but I like the options. Furniture could be updated to give it a more upscale look to match with the price.

    This is a nice place to go for a treat. The brunch is only served from 12:00-2:30 pm which limits times you can make reservations. If your a small party, you can probably get in without one unless it's peak season in the mountains.

    I've been to the Blue Ridge Restaurant twice. First time was for the Sunday Brunch which was delicious! But the second time was for the Seafood Buffet on Fridays and it was phenomenal! It is so worth the $50/person price tag. They have all types of seafood. I tried pretty much a little bit of everything, and it was all delicious. Standouts were definitely king crab legs and freshly shucked oysters, of course! The servers brought melted butter over when they saw you had crab legs and they were very on top of refilling waters and checking in. I went at 545pm and left around 8pm, and I had a window seat so I got to see the sunset! Also, desserts were delicious especially the bananas foster and the chocolate brulee tart. Would highly recommend to everyone - visitors & locals!

    The restaurant is nice and the service was great, however, we had to go through three highchairs in order to find one that was in good condition. The first two were broken. The food was okay. It is a buffet, but they had a nice selection.

    Oysters were the smallest I've ever seen and flavor less. A big disappointment. Mexican corn had globs of cheese. Fried okra was barely warm. Bananas Foster was excellent! Crab legs and shrimp were very good. Overall, not worth the price. We won't be going back. Before Omni took over, it was much, much better.

    If you want a good variety of brunch foods and a great view, this is a great spot to go to. You pay for the location but it is a great way to show folks the Grove Park Inn. Was most impressed with the hospitality of the wait staff and how accommodating they were to our party of 9.

    Purchased Sunday brunch. Food was delicious. It was buffet style with so much variety (meat, seafood, vegetables, breakfast foods, desserts). It was busy with people moving about but everyone was respectful. The mimosa flight was flavorful (except the cran-apple but still good). Enjoyed the view of the mountains during our meal. The staff have a good process to get people checked-in and seated. Will do another brunch when we visit again.

    We do not usually eat at that late of a time but but they ran out of oysters and crab cakes and the food did not seem as fresh as normal. The server got us another dozen Oysters from the kitchen but we didn't get as many as wanted. They were out of other things also.
