Blue Ridge Ratings and Reviews

The view was breathtaking! The atmosphere was great! The seafood buffet was outstanding!!! There was food to satisfy all palates, including a vegetarian! I was the only vegetarian in our party of six and was worried there wouldn't be much for me to eat, but there was no need to worry as there was such an enormous variety of delicious food to satisfy anyone's appetite. All we can say is WOW, you have great chefs! Our Server was so professional, warm, kind and gracious; she made our evening all the more special. After spending the day touring the Biltmore Estate and shopping at a great antique store, our family couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place than the the Blue Ridge Restaurant in the historic Grove Park Inn to end our evening in such a special way. Thank you for the great food, service, and memories!

Mimosa was room temperature; white napkins were washed out and left a lot of lint; shrimp undercooked with grits; beef at carving table was well over done and dried out...terrible; serving rooms were dark and difficult to visualize the food; the crab cakes were good. Banana foster was good but the rest of the desserts were nothing special; cheese cakes were warm and mushy.

The reservation process in order to change From 3 to 4 was tedious.
The woman at the dining room entrance blocked my path as if I was gate crashing and asked if I had a reservation . It should be done gracefully.
Food and service by Jose was outstanding!

I took my second wife here for dinner at the Friday night seafood buffet. The service was impeccable and the whole experience was top notch. My first wife and I went on our honeymoon here, but my second wife was very impressed with everything, even though she has a discriminating pallet. This was our 10th anniversary, and it far exceeded our expectation, and helped to make her feel wonderfully special. Thank you for making this much needed time extraordinary . Keep doing things with the utmost class.

Had the most delightful Sunday Brunch here recently! The food selections were extensive and delicious and as it is a buffet you can check out as many as you wish. Save room for dessert though, bite size portions of very yummy sweets! The service was excellent and our window seat looking out on the Blueridge Mountains topped off a great experience.

We had a special occasion to celebrate and had heard about the great Sunday brunch at The Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina. We decided to try it and we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic and the service was great! Jason was our waiter and he was the best! He answered all our questions and had great recommendations. We could not have had a better time. Thank you very much! And thank you Jason!!

We always enjoy eating at the Blue Ridge Dining Room when we want to splurge. I was a little put off by how the tables are now arranbed but I do see how staggering two tops allows them to seat more couples. This isn't ideal for a quiet evening as it can be quite noisy. The food was top notch as usual as were the desserts.

We were doing a Mother/Daughter trip with friends to see the Biltmore. A friend recommended the Friday night seafood buffet at Grove Park Inn. It was everything and more that we were told. Every dish was great. It was fun trying dishes that I do not normally get to taste. The food was exquisite (especially desserts), cocktails devine and robust, plus the service was impeccable.
This beautiful buffet for two with a specialty cocktail each and 20% tip was $140. The buffet was $42. One would pay that anywhere for a really good seafood meal without the selection that we had.
I was so impressed with the entire establishment that I plan to schedule a stay at the Grove Park Inn for an anniversary celebration next year.

reservation went smoothly. staff were friendly and all wished my wife a happy birthday and even served a special birthday dessert. Brunch had many choices and even a make your own bloody Marie bar. met local friends and sat outside and inside for cocktails, never feeling rushed.

My significant other and I went to Blue Ridge for our Anniversary/his birthday. We did the Prime Rib buffet. It's the best buffet we've ever been to. The view was AMAZING. We requested a table by the window and went right before sunset; so we were able to watch as the sun went down over the mountains.
The waitstaff was great, constantly taking our plates and refilling our beverages. The food was well worth the price. There's a room of just desserts, one full of seafood and salads (pasta, potato, make your own), and another room of hot foods (there's something for everyone). They even have a kids section. The food was well worth the price and had some of the best food I've ever had.
The atmosphere was pretty quiet despite all of the people that were there. Parking can be quite hard to find outside the Inn, although they do have a parking garage. Once inside it is quite a hike so I recommend giving yourself a bit of time if you have a reservation.

NOT the "fantastic" seafood buffet I heard about in the past. Average selections and average tasting. The desserts were also disappointing. The custard selections all tasted like powder mixes (some were even watery) and the pastries were average tasting, as well. The vanilla ice cream was was ok - again nothing special like a rich bean vanilla - so I stopped trying to find a nice finish to this meal.
