This is our third visit to the high tea. If I could I would go everyday! The staff and management are very welcoming. We have been served by Natalia each time and she is awesome! You will not find a kinder more caring person. She listens, remembers and supports the needs of the customer. I highly recommend everyone go here once the virus has made it possible to get out again. Make this your first stop, tea is amazing here!

The service is outstanding and the food/teas delicious!! I recently moved my daughter to this area and I make sure we have a date here every time I come to visit! A wonderful time to chat and enjoy a cozy tea. This should be on your list of great family time. My son would enjoy it but it is not for my husband. Keep on mind this is high tea. Best for those who enjoy a relaxing moment for tea and conversation.

This was a nice option for high tea in our area. I appreciated getting to smell the teas before choosing. I do not like that my scones were iced, but realize that is probably a very specific person preference. I plan to come again.

After traveling thirty minutes to the Grand, we were greeted by a very friendly server who then seated us near the entrance. My view was a doorway. I then asked if we could be seated at another table, and she very willingly moved our party of three. However, we were not allowed to sit near a window with a view. It just felt as if we were seated in the entryway. The tea really wasn’t that great, and the savory side of the menu left one asking for more. The server was fantastic, but we will not be back for high tea.

We had a lovely time. Grand Hotel served a very Southern version of high tea appropriate for a location on the bay and near the coast. Namely, rather than salmon finger sandwiches, they served a fantastic open faced smoked salmon concoction, and something akin to crab salad on a tiny romaine lettuce wedge. Rather than a cucumber sandwich, they served a cucumber slice topped with a pickled peach, topped with a tiny dollop of a cream sauce, and that was topped with an edible flower! Lots of detail and delicious. And of course the scones and desserts were great.

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful in explaining the various types of teas and treats/scones. So glad we went, and look forward to going again. Also, a great value for the price--very much worth it for the whole experience.

The food tower was very disappointing. It tasted old and the breads were dried out from sitting out. I certainly know that the Grand Hotel can do better in the food department. Our server was delightful and tried to insure we had a pleasant experience, although she had not control over the kitchen. I think management can monitor this event much better.

I took my daughter and three-year-old granddaughter to the tea. It was a very professionally staged tea. There were delicious choices, sweet and savory, for the adults and little princess. The waitress was child-friendly and gave a good overview of the offerings. I was pleased with our outing.
