We went for the seafood buffet. There is a HUGE selection and the food was good, not great. The reason to go - THE VIEW!!!!!! We went at sunset and the view of the sunset and mountains was fantastic! It is also in the Grove Park Inn, which is a really cool hotel away from downtown. We wished that we would've stayed there vs downtown. The service was very good.

It would have been nice if there were more broiled fish items such as shrimp and scallops. At the price I expected more options both fried and broiled. We ate there 2 nights and there just weren’t many vegetables. The desserts were great but at that price you aren’t just paying for fancy desserts.

We bought a vacation home in Asheville several years ago. This was our first trip to see the beautiful Grove Park Inn and to eat there. The Blue Ridge Friday night seafood buffet did not disappoint. We were amazed at the waiter’s attention to detail through the meal. I dropped my spoon and was immediately supplied with a new one without even asking. The food was delicious, as well. We are planning on trying Sunday Brunch during our next trip to Asheville.

Brought the whole family for Easter Brunch. The amount of food on the buffet is massive, but it's just ok food. The view is fantastic. Our waitress was able to clear plates very well, but her personality was lacking. (With 20% added automatically she had no reason to work too hard). Go for the view, but I wouldn't suggest eating here.

We had the Friday night seafood buffet and it was amazing. It’s around $50 per person but so worth the money. The view was spectacular and there are three rooms of food!

As NC residents and occasional visitors to Grove Park, the Sunday brunch has always been one of our favorite things. However our most recent visit did not meet those prior expectations. We were seated immediately at a table right at the windows with it’s outstanding view. Service was meticulous. The disappointment was in the food, especially the hot section. There were no fresh vegetables. Only starch upon starch. The prime rib at the carving station was very dry. The shrimp was good. All in all nothing stood out as special. Something we had come to look forward to at our previous visits. Probably won’t be back back .

We had previously dined here for Christmas Eve buffet, which had a great variety of seafood and was spectacular. So we returned recently for the Friday seafood buffet, which was no less impressive. So hard to be selective and not overdo it, but leave room for made to order dessert. That night it was Bananas Foster in addition to the ice cream station, strawberry shortcake station and many other cakes and pies. Great view. Great service. Great value at $44.
