We loved everything we had here. We started with fried green tomatoes and the bacon, order it!! My husband had the grilled cheese and tomato soup, yum, I actually ordered the nachos which is a small plate and it was so good. It was definitely more than enough for an actual entree. Drinks were good too. The hoploma is a must have. Views are gorgeous and service was great.

On the advice of a friend we made a reservation at Edison’s. Glad we did! We had chicken lollipops, corn chowder, Cesar salad and shrimp & grits. Chicken, Chowder and salad were perfect! Shrimp & grits came out cold. Saying it was lukewarm was being very generous. Hated to do it, but we had to send it back. Kitchen prepared a new dish for us and it was outstanding! Wait staff apologized profusely & gave us our appetizer gratis. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and view. Would recommend to others.

I know it's a resort hotel, but $15.00 for a grilled cheese sandwich?! Oh, my bad, it had one strip of bacon on it, that must explain the price. For touting craft ales, they have a ridiculously small draught beer selection. Our server, Charlie, tried WAY too hard to be personable and just came off super creepy. The highlight was the view of the Blue Ridge mountains at sunset. That almost was worth the price.

Our meal was fantastic. We were seated right away, and although there’s not a bad seat in the restaurant, we were seated by the end of the restaurant and the views were simply incredible. Our waiter, Charlie, was charming and attentive assuring that our dinner was perfect.

Hostess lied to me about table availability.. I asked to speak to manager... 2 hours later after eating meal and drinking a bottle of wine , I was never approached by management?
This 22 year old thought by blowing me off I would just forget catching her lying to me...
Bottom Line.. after 7 pm. Forget about dealing with anyone over the age of 23 with 1 year of hospitality experience..
What a joke... hope the rest of my stay is better

Had dinner as Sun was going down. Sun was beaming directly on our table. Very uncomfortable with glare and hot temperature. Moved tables. Still hot. No sun blocks or shades on building. Service was poor as waitress appeared annoyed that we moved tables which we did in first two minutes. Food was mediocre. Had oysters which were spongy. Then had salmon caesar and salmon was undercooked. Prices were sky.

The sunset views are amazing!! The service was good. The food was lacking for the price. I ordered the kale salad with watermelon radish, grilled cauliflower, and paid extra to have shrimp added. The salad consisted mostly of a big bowl of kale and four shrimp. Disappointing! The gazpacho was thin and bland. the best part was the pretzel bread appetizer, small but yummy. My husband's bison burger was thin and unimpressive. Would come back for the views and atmosphere!

We requested - and received - outside seating so we could view the sunset and we were rewarded with a beautiful sunset! Our server, Jason, was friendly and helpful. Our food choices were good. Prices were moderate. Very pleasant evening.

The cocktails were delicious ($15 ea.) and the fish special was liked. However, two people in our group ordered the mega-bison burger for $17 ea. and it was a joke. The cooks do not temperature check any of their burgers and those came out extra well-done. It is hidden by additionally toppings that accompany the burger like an over-easy egg, bbq, mozzarella sticks (why?). The bison was more like a breakfast sausage patty at best.

We were staying at the Omni Grove Park with Friends and went celebrate our anniversaries. They sat us outside to take in the magnificent view of the mountains. The food was good from the burger to the Shrimp and Grits. We'd recommend.

The Edison's view is spectacular but the food is certainly not a value. Tiny portions and high prices. The recipes are okay in most cases but the fried green tomatoes were a total disappointment. Hard crusted with a fried covering rather than dusted and fried.

My son and I traveled to Grove Park Inn and were delighted to eat at Edison. We ate out on the terrace- spectacular view, and that's even an understatement. The food was great, uncommon, on trend, and just delicious. My only reason for a 4/5 star on food was that my son's dinner-Brisket Ramen was both extremely hot in temperature and more spicy then the menu would leave you to believe. He did enjoy it, but scalded his mouth pretty good. Would definitely go back, next time with hubby, who is a picky eater but could easily find something on the menu.

Disappointed. Though the young man was friendly, he was obviously not used to the hospitality business of service and attentiveness. We had to constantly be looking for him for one thing after another. The food was only fair but nothing to write home about. Sorry, trying to be honest.

We really enjoyed our visit as the view is spectacular. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was good. We filled up on appetizers - the pretzel fondue and fried green tomatoes. While the portion of fondue was small, we loved the beer cheese dip. The fried green tomatoes was a later portion and were tasty. When the staff found out it was our honeymoon, they gave us a complimentary treat! We will definitely be back.

Kitchen had malfunction. Waited over an hour for our entrees (a hamburger and chicken sandwich). Mgr apologized and said the entrees would be on the house (free) because of the delay. Instead they charged for the entrees but not for the nachos appetizer (which came quickly). Did not bother to find manager to ask about the bill since we had now been at the restaurant for over 2 hrs. Next night we ate at restaurant off the hotel premises.

The food was delicious and the view was gorgeous. We were disappointed by the service however, we came out relatively unscathed, with only a few wine stains on a dress and cardigan from a spilled glass of red wine.
