Blue Ridge Ratings and Reviews
Buffet spread was fabulous with great variety. Well staffed for the Mother's Day crowd and they were all very customer focused to make the dinner extra special (mimosas, rose, ...). Views of the Blue Ridge Mountains were spectacular and the atmosphere of the Grove Park Inn was at it's best on a beautiful day.
Blue Ridge was fabulous ONCE YOU FIND IT. Open table could do a better job with the description - we had no idea this restaurant was inside a huge hotel venue until we arrived at the golf course and were convinced we were lost. We had to walk a long way from parking the car. Luckily, the food and service was worth the wait, but we were honestly quite annoyed that it was so difficult to find it and access it.
Our first visit to Blue Ridge at The Omni Grove Park Inn was a delightful dining experience. Saturday night buffet has both prime rib and seafood galore (shrimp, crab legs, etc.). Stan was our server and we will request him again on our return visit as he did an outstanding job attending to our dining needs. To cap off the evening, there were fireworks in the downtown Asheville area and we had window seats.
There was an abundance of food to choose from. It reminded me of being on a cruise ship salads to desserts with many options. However most of the choices were mediocre. There was plenty of shrimp dishes but not many for fish. Everything was presented very nicely. For $44.00 per person I would probably go to a nice restaurant which would offer a cozier atmosphere with more original selections. After all how much can one really eat?
As a side note, I would also offer small forks and scissors for the snow crab as it was very difficult to eat with just a nut cracker.
This was probably our 15th meal at the Blue Ridge in as many years. The food was outstanding as usual. They added to an already ample dessert section. We will absolutely be back. Due to the renovation of the Sammon's wing of the Grove Park, the Inn was under-booked which meant the Blue Ridge was not crowded at all.
Brought my wife over to eat at the restaurant and knew what the charges were before hand. Food was OK and plentiful to say the least. No diabetic desserts for her, and should have some sugar free items. Baby cried the whole time we were there and was very annoying. I will have to say the atmosphere was good and so was the scenery. We are what we would call in the top 10% of clientele in our net worth, and can go anywhere we want to eat and pay any price we feel is adequate, but the meal for two people with no alcoholic drinks, for a 100.00 bill, we will pick somewhere else next time.
We have been to The Blue Ridge several times for their holiday buffets and Friday night Seafood Buffet and Easter Sunday buffet was disappointing. The service was not up to par and the food assortments were leaning more to breakfast foods. It was not value received. Most disappointing
Well worth it just for the view. Hostess overheard my twin and I talking about our upcoming birthday the next day and mid-meal, our waitress brings out two plates with candles and macarons just for us. It was dazzling. She also helped recommend wines for us to buy afterward. The food was delicious, don't be overwhelmed by the amount offered, just dive right in. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, a little pricey for Sunday brunch, but it's not like you get this sort of service/view every day.
Our first time eating at Grove Parks Sunday brunch and we were 100% impressed with everything!!!!! Not to say the food wasn't good, but for the price you pay you have sooooo much food, just some similar taste, you could eat at Cracker Barrel somewhat. I will say all of ther food was to die for though. The Waiter we had was stunning and super delicate towards his manners and always was at our service if needed. Super sweet. The ladies up front showed us around different food options to give you a feel of what you're looking for before grabbing a plate and looking confused like most places.. I will say this would be the best breakfast date we've ever had for sure.!
