Blue Ridge Ratings and Reviews

The food is varied & delicious. The view is breathtaking. It is very pricey & for the price the mimosas should be refilled throughout the meal, as at other hotel brunches. But only one small one per customer is allowed. This was startling & disappointing. Another shock was having to pay $15 for hotel parking. We were not told this when our car was parked. This was our first experience under the new Omni management. While delicious, we won't be back. The Grove Park Inn has just got too greedy.

Fantastic property and incredible views! The buffet was one of the nicest we've had outside of Vegas and a pretty good value. We still don't love buffets, but this one was better than most with high quality items and really good service. We'd love to come back and stay at the Grove Park Inn and visit the spa! I'd definitely put it on your list for Sunday brunch.

So the food was AHhhhhhmazing!! This is the closest thing we've found to the Sterling Brunch in Las Vegas and Atlantic City(RIP ) The Bloody Mary bar was an unexpected surprise and tasted great! The shrimp/grits station and the eggs Benny station were awesome as well. Great assortment of food and the quality was stellar. The only thing keeping me from awarding 5 stars was the service. The manager checked on us twice and was super nice. Our server Leonardo was very pleasant however also was taking care of an extremely needy 12 top who clearly thought he was only one waiting on them. I felt bad as every time he would attempt to break away and check on us, the large party would call him over for more stuff. The view and ambiance were amazing and again the wait staff was extremely pleasant. I felt Leonardo perhaps needed back up as every time he attempted to come to us, he got reeled back in. The food quality/price and drinks were a great value! People had previously reviewed that it was over priced and I disagree. Premium food and cocktails cost a little more. We will definitely be back!!

We attended the Seafood Buffet in the Blue Ridge Room at The Grove Park Inn. The food on the buffet was excellent--a great variety of well-prepared dishes. The service was excellent as well. I would highly recommend the Friday evening Seafood Buffet!

When we made the reservation, we mentioned that it was our anniversary. They had a great table by the window with a magnificent view. They wished us a Happy Anniversary. At the end they brought us a plate with chocolates and Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. The perfect ending to the dining experience.

Not really a romantic place as the tables are jammed together for as many as they can seat!!! .... I looks like the interior/exterior windows have not been cleaned in years!!!! .... Window sills nasty!!
Decent food, but hard to justify $50.00/person for a meal in a very crowded environment!

We have dined at the BR multiple times and the last time was this past Feb and the food and selection was disappointing. It as like there was another chef preparing the food. This past Friday night everything was excellent from the salads, appetizer of scallops, fresh seafood, smoked fish, roasted vegetables, hot vegetables to the entrees. The crab cakes were the best they have been in about a year. Everything was prepared and presented well. Our waitress, Molly was just attentive enough and very cheerful. I was very pleasantly surprised because of the last experience - so whoever was in charge of the food, menu, etc on Friday night - WELL DONE!!!!

We love the Blue Ridge at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville for Sunday Brunch. The selection of brunch foods is terrific along with great mimosas. The Eggs Benedict station is my favorite with a selection of standard bennies, lox bennies, crab cake bennies and a choice of Hollandaise or Bernaise sauce. This is just one of numerous brunch food stations. The wait staff are perfectly trained and whisk used plates away immediately. The view of the mountains from the restaurant and hotel is breath taking.

Have been a few times for your Friday night seafood buffet and left extremely pleased. First time trying Saturday night buffet for prime rib and two of our party that tried the prime rib commented they were not impressed. The service was exceptional and had a nice visit with family, but embarrassed that we had bragged on your buffet and then felt it wasn't up to what we had experienced on past visits.

My wife and I came for our 27th wedding anniversary. She enjoyed the seafood buffet, I would have liked a few other options for those who don't just want seafood. Flank steak wasn't very palatable. However as always the service staff was excellent.
EXCELLENT SEAFOOD AND PRIME RIB BUFFET DINNERS!
WE WENT TWICE, ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT FOR SEAFOOD THEN PRIME RIB BUFFET DINNERS. THE HOST MICHAEL, WAS ABLE TO GET MASHED POTATOES AND GRAVY FOR OUR DAUGHTER SPECIALLY REQUESTED WHICH WAS VERY NICE. THE CRAB LEGS WERE AWESOME, VERY SWEET AND FRESH, DIDN'T NEED ANY BUTTER. THE OYSTERS WERE FRESH AS WELL. THE PRIME RIB AND RISOTTO STATION WERE DELICIOUS AND MADE TO ORDER BANANAS FOSTER WAS A PERFECT DESSERT AT THE END OF THE MEAL. THE SERVICE WAS FANTASTIC AND VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS WAS VERY NICE. THIS IS IN THE OMNI GROVE PARK INN HOTEL, WHICH IS AN AWESOME PLACE TO STAY AT AND EXPLORE AS WELL.
Friday Seafood Buffet No Longer a Wow!
Overall mediocre -- inedible oysters and mussels (sparse leftovers never refreshed); some prepared food in chafing dishes (example: roasted potatoes) were seriously over salted; menu less bountiful than usual. Would no longer recommend this buffet and hope that it does not
indicate a quality loss with other dining traditions at the Grove Park Inn (now Omni).
Mother's day lunch
Food was good. Some was great , some was ok . Service from our waitress Ashley was great . There was no orientation/overview of buffet by our hosted which would have been helpful. We were seated in dark corner and were disappointed with that. Overall we had nice lunch but the price should have been perfect
Best (and most expensive) brunch I've ever eaten.
The Mother's Day Brunch at the Blue Ridge at Grove Park Inn is utterly overwhelming. The quantity of items, most of the very highest quality, is far greater that one person could ever sample in a single meal. The Inn and the restaurant provide fantastic views and the ambience is sophisticated but friendly.
The price is extremely high, but if you go to a special-occasion place like this expecting a bargain, you haven't thought it through. This is for when you want to splurge on the best. With that in mind, spend a few extra dollars on the Bloody Mary bar, with half a dozen different mixes, assorted vodkas, and garnishes from bacon to pickled jalapenos.
Good food but ...
While the food was good and the service was better than good, it was a buffet and it cost $53 per person - including our children. It was for Mother's Day Brunch and yes I expected a higher than average cost, being that it's one of the Grove Park restaurants, but $53 per person is ridiculously high. Plus they auto grat 20%. Again, buffet. For 4 people the bill was a few dollars short of $300.
