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.

    Father’s Day buffet was not expected because a Brunch menu was listed on the website. The food was good. I was a little disappointed with the shrimp and grits. It was more grits and gravy with little to no shrimp. The chicken and waffles were very tasty. And there was a good omelette and beef station. The desserts were frozen and kinda bland. $5 mimosas were very good with a variety of juices. I would have preferred to order from brunch menu.

    We selected this restaurant based upon their brunch menu but rather walked into an expensive but very limited buffet. The hostess seemed a bit overwhelmed and the service was slow and at times difficult to track down for assistance. The restaurant is located in a country club on a residential development so you walk in with high expectations only to be underwhelmed with the final product. We weren’t directed to the omelette station that was tucked away into a far corner, the waffles were too dense and sugary to even finish, and the drinks were poorly crafted and to top it off my sister was denied her request to get her bagel toasted. Our server eventually took it to the kitchen just to bring back a warm bagel that obviously was warmed in something other than a toaster or oven. The country club must have other great amenities because this restaurant clearly isn’t the draw.

    This spot is definitely one of my favorites. It’s quiet with great service and awesome scenery. I love that it’s not too far from home but it feels that way. Now that things are slowly getting back to normal, I will go back to being a regular!!!

    Food was set up buffet style. We only used the waitress once to order Omelets and twice for mimosas. My complaint they charged us 18% gratuity per table. When the waitress did nothing to deserve it. We served ourselves 95% with the buffet. Change the gratuity standard when there’s a buffet style setting. Thanks

    Mother’s Day a brunch so happened to be a buffet that was not specified. Last year there was a menu. The potatoes were very hard, the fish was over cooked and burning. The grits were not fully cooked. The waffles were cold, the omelet that veggies were requested was not cooked thoroughly. The server Kim was great and very attentive.

    First I love this spot! My issue is that my reservation has been canceled 3 different times on the day of my reservation. There's a calendar on the website. I use to see private events scheduled on the calendar but lately nothing. All three times my reservation was canceled at the last minute due to a private event, I was bringing new customers and that's not good for business. Please have someone work on the calendar.

    The Grove is a hidden gem Tucktaway in the beautiful community of Oak Creek the restaurant sits on a beautiful Golf course. This made my ladies brunch so inviting. Our server was very attentive and our food was so delicious.. The mimosas were amazing! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    I listed all “Poor” because The Grove didn't have our reservation in their records. I called ahead of time to ask for an outdoor table and they said they had no record of our reservation. They blamed opentable for “not working well.” By the time I called they had no tables so we were out of luck. The first person I spoke with was pretty rude. The second person was nicer but still blamed Opentable and couldn't accommodate us. It would have been nice to try their food.

    I can’t remember the bartender’s name, but she said she was only there on Sunday’s and she was AMAZING! All of her suggestions from food to drinks (including subs because she didn’t have a particular alcohol for a drink my friend wanted) were great. She was attentive but not overbearing and she never made us feel rushed. Everyone there was so friendly and welcoming. My best friend and I agreed that it would be our new regular spot!

    We visited The Grove for my wife’s birthday. We enjoyed it very much. The Honey Old Bay wings were yummy. I ordered the fried catfish it was ok… mine was cooked a bit too much, but still enjoyable. The Mac and cheese could use some work but the greens were great. My wife had the bread pudding and she said it was AMAZING!!! The best part of the night was the amazing staff.. they made us feel very special. Also they have a very nice heated patio which is a vibe all by itself.

    I love the ambiance and vibe at The Grove. I did not enjoy the food and drinks. We were there for Taco Tuesday and ordered the salmon, chicken and carnita tacos. The salmon tasted fishy, much stronger than salmon is expected to taste. The carnita tasted like barbecue pork taken out of a package and chicken had no flavor at all. My lemon drop martini was made with lemon juice from a bottle, not fresh squeezed lemon juice, which is a main component of the recipe. I wish they would have told me they did not have/did not use fresh lemons; I would have ordered something else. All that being said, I had a great time there. I will limit my order to a salad and wine, so the food will not detract from the ambiance and gorgeous view of the venue.

    Menu selection was poor. There was no one at the restaurant and yet our meals arrived at different times, and our server forgot to put in the order for half of our meals. Between waiting and repeatedly following up w our server to ask where our food was, dinner took over 4 hours. It was one of the worst restaurant experiences of my life. To make matters worse, the server didn’t apologize or realize it was a bad experience.
