Located on the grounds of the Oak Creek community, the Grove stems from a rich history that began in 1819, where the original eight hundred and fifty acres of land was filled with Oak trees that has now become the foundation for this community. The word Grove serves as a metaphor between the many families who represent our community and a group of oaks which is the symbol of “strength” and “endurance”. The Grove is a casual fine dining experience meant to bring family and friends together. Sleek, inviting, and comfortable design elements makes The Grove the perfect place to Be, Eat, and Celebrate.

    My reservation was at 2:30 on Mother’s Day, however the hostess did not have my table ready. Table for 5. It took about 10 minutes for my party to be seated. The table was awkwardly place and impossible to pass without bumping into the chairs at the table close to us. The cloth napkins at my table smelled horrible! I was not expecting buffet style only, I was not able to order from the menu. The Buffett was horrible!! The food was not good and not worth $40!! The waffles were hard, my kids would not eat them. The salad was not fresh, the cucumbers were soggy and lettuce wilted and black. Lastly, the dessert options were pre-frozen slices of cheesecake and they were cut into mini slivers. I was not pleased with my meal, no one in my party was. The only positive was the live band, the music was excellent!!

    The food was good however, if they serve greens, they need to have cornbread or another bread to go along with the meal. There was also a slight sour odor to so e if glasses when served with drinks.

    The visit was for Mother's Day and the food was horrible. Bacon almost raw. The shrimp and grits were remarkably the worst. The only thing in my party's opinion that was edible was the salad, fruit and fish. The boiled/steamed veggies were 90% salt, you could not even taste the vegetables. We had a very attentive waiter, that was refreshing. The place was clean, and it was nice to hear live entertainment. Needless to say this is 2nd time that we have patronized this facility and had bad food, but this time was certainly worse than the first visit a couple of years ago; we thought we'd give it another try, and just like that almost $200 later we are very unsatisfied and will not return for food again, we ended up calling and picking up take-out from another restaurant, and paid the same amount of money, so it cost us $400 to eat in 1 day. Very disappointing and embarrassing, as we brought guest that were visiting from the West Coast. In the future if there is a specific event that we decide to attend, we will certainly eat before attending.

    I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant since it's in my neighborhood. As mentioned, the food was very good and the service was good also. Perhaps the service was so good because we were the only ones in the restaurant for most of the time. I'm looking forward to going back and seeing how it will be when the restaurant is full. All in all it was not a bad experience.

    They did not honor my OpenTable reservation. Requested a table for 10 on the patio. Almost a week prior to the date.

    We booked this place to celebrate a family member’s birthday. We reviewed the dinner online and was expecting to see the same items online listed on the menu in person. When we got to The Grove that was not the case. They handed us what seemed to be a pool side menu with hotdogs and burgers. This was very disappointing because this was not the menu that we saw online. We then had to find a restaurant at the last minute to go to. I’m not sure if I will be coming back. Our server was really nice but the manager did not seem to care about the inconvenience.

    Young wait staff has to mature and pay attention to the customers. They are too busy talking and don’t multitask. Atmosphere is nice Great place for small parties Very nice place Eggs seem to come from a liquid vs fresh. But for $37 it was just fine for us.
