We arrived at 6:30 and had a great view but the sun was very very hot. We were all uncomfortable and sunburned. Food was average and expensive. Service was excellent. Mixed feelings about ever going back.

The beets and grits were delicious. The kale salad was pretty good. My knuckle sandwich was inedible, there was way too much lobster and it wasn’t fresh. My husband’s crispy buffalo chicken sandwich was soggy. The servers were very kind and helped us move to another table out of the sun. The server did take my knuckle sandwich off our bill, which I appreciated. The ambiance was nice. As this was our first meal of our visit, it kind of put me off the food in the rest of the hotel restaurants.

It was pitched as a craft beer restaurant but there were not many choices. Food was mediocre. Burger didn’t have much flavor. Waiter got orders mixed up. Table was dirty. No silverware. For a place that was so difficult to get a reservation I was disappointed.

Absolutely HORRIBLE, inedible food and DEPLORABLE new management. We are regulars and locals in the area who have frequented Edison for years, and this has declined SIGNIFICANTLY in the past six months. The food was fatty, glutenous, and laden with fat and butter. No flavor and very unhealthy. Stop by The Grove Park Inn for a fabulous view and enjoy a drink in the lobby with the live band, but do not bother to spend a dime on the food.

Thank you for sharing. This is not the guest experience for which we are known. We apologize the food was not to your liking and for any misunderstanding regarding our fireworks; we do our utmost to ensure The Inn's Independence Day celebration is communicated clearly beginning in April, both online and via advertising. The manager of Edison has addressed your concerns with the server, and this will not be an issue moving forward. We hope you will return, to show you our true hospitality.

We ate on the deck, beautiful view, but lots of patrons coming to take pics right behind our table. I’ve eaten at Edison’s many times, and it was always good. This visit I ordered the Angus burger and it was NOT good. Disappointing.

Beautiful setting. Very good service from enthusiastic late teens and early 20’s adults. We did not see anyone over 30 who seemed to be running things. The food was good, not great, but too salty for our liking.

Our party of 3 had a 7:15 reservation on May 31 for “outdoor seating” which is in the open part of Edison, but all under-roof… perfect weather, beautiful sunset. Our server, Nicky, was knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly, but not overbearing. One martini ordered… well made in a chilled glass. We shared the Local Beets appetizer… delicious, served over fabulous grits. All of our entrees were delicious: the lobster sandwich, that day’s fish special, a salad with chicken breast. Wine selection is adequate, tiered by price, with quality selections. No dessert. The décor is beautiful modern Craftsman; lots of large screen TVs in the enclosed areas with oversized sofa seating around large fireplaces and TVs, but not an overly sports-bar vibe. It’s a bit pricey, but this is a special setting with an excellent kitchen, bar and ambiance… worth the price… a very nice dining experience. I'm a local, and this is high on my "top spots" list.

The food at the Edison was outstanding. The service was amazing. Our waiter Lorne was superb. The only issue was that we were seated outside in the sun. There is no relief from the sun ANYWHERE outside as the evening moves on the whole area is sunny and HOT! I would suggest indoor seating. Other than that it's AMAZING!
