Blue Ridge Ratings and Reviews

This was our third time visiting the Blue Ridge. We had not experienced the Prime Rib Buffet. The food was delicious and I can truly say everything we tasted was well prepared and tasty. The service was outstanding. Server went out of his way to make sure we had what we needed, and was so wonderful about suggesting a wine. We had a table by the window and although it was a cloudy day/evening, the view was spectacular. Will definitely return again.

We went for our 15th anniversary to the Friday night seafood buffet. Unfortunately it was packed. We overheard a waiter tell another couple December is the busiest time to come. I would definitely recommend waiting until a different time of year.

Those desert bars what??!! How can you have that many mouth watering items? The variety on the desert and the food buffet was incredible. We ate Friday/Saturday night there and Sat/Sun mornings for the breakfast buffet. Wonderful ambiance. Our wait staff for our group event Saturday was attentive and right on the job. Our waitress Friday night was wonderful. I believe her name was Laura, she had the best laugh! We had a billing question and she was able to help us with it. We were at the resort as a group for the weekend. It was magical!

We booked a table to celebrate our 12th year Anniversary, we asked for a window table and it did not disappoint. The Hostess gave us a tour of the buffet before we were seated, impressive to say the least. We went on a Friday which means we got the Seafood Buffet. The crab legs were steamed to perfection. Three large rooms of incredible cuisine. Decadent deserts. Troy hand panned a primavera type scampi for us that included mussels and shrimp, fresh garlic, onion, parsley, and seasonings that simply blew our minds. There were several foods my wife and I had never experienced which was really nice. The waitstaff, professional, friendly and always on time. The sunset behind the mountains in the distance setup one incredible evening. Bottom line, you simply can not go wrong here. We cannot wait to return!

As someone who grew up going to the Grove Park Inn's Blue ridge Dining Room, I just had to make a reservation here as part of the itinerary for my first trip back to the Asheville area in nearly 20 years. I can say with absolutely certainty that my most recent experience was extremely special. I wanted to introduce this historic hotel and outstanding restaurant to my husband and mother-in-law. They were highly impressed! The hostess staff was so kind in making sure that we were given a window seat, which allowed us to enjoy the most magnificent sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains. Furthermore, we had an attentive waiter, Jonathan Woody, who deserves the highest of accolades. In so many buffet style dining scenarios, one tends to miss the service aspect of a restaurant. In this case, nothing could be further from the truth. He gave us excellent table service! Just to give one example - upon returning to the table with crab claws, Jonathan had the foresight to immediately provide us with melted butter and claw crackers. As always, the three rooms of buffet offerings exceeded everyone's expectations and had something for every palette. This place fills me with nostalgia yet always provides new and delicious food options. It will always be a part of any trip that I make to the area.

I went there over the Thanksgiving weekend, first time for the Friday night Seafood Buffet, it was outstanding, everything was just spot on. Well worth the money!!! Truly one of the best buffet ever, above and beyond what I thought it might be..
I would highly recommend!!

Visited Blue Ridge for their Friday seafood buffet. We had 3 adults and 2 children under 4. We, including the kids, really enjoyed the snow crabs and the wide assortment of foods. There were one or two stations that I wished had clearer labeling - there was a station with lidded kettle that was a mystery. Overall, we simply had a great time. Each area has 3 servers attending so they were very nice about filling our hot water (for tea) and taking away plates and being accommodating to us with young children. Hope to make it back again when we next visit the area.

Went for the Thanksgiving buffet later in the evening (7:15 seating). The food was very good for being so late in the day (service had started at noon) and the staff, especially our server Denise, were still all very cordial and accommodating.

Arrived and sent to parking deck (or valet) unaware that we would be charged $15 in addition to dinner.
Lined up for Thanksgiving buffet reservations for 6:45, seated after 7pm in long line of reservations.
Excellent options for meal, everything recently restocked and labeled. Wonderful meal, setting and wait staff (20% added for service regardless of size of party).
Enjoyed seeing Grove Park decorated at Christmas, disappointed by $15 parking for dinner.

We went for the Thanksgiving buffet. It was a little pricey but the food was WONDERFUL! From the salads to the dessert it was beautifully displayed and just as yummy when eaten. The carved wild turkey was the best turkey I've ever had.

Our third Thanksgiving dining here but may be last. The $60 pp is very steep, and the automatic 20% gratuity for our party of five made us rethink. It's crowded, the room is very warm and little things like an offer of complimentary beverages (you pay extra for soda, iced tea!?) would be a welcome gift. The food is always delicious and the servers of the buffet food are wonderful. But, it's hard to relax and so we'll prob avoid next time.

As the pricing for the Thanksgiving Buffet was NOT on the site, we wrongly assumed the price would be similar to what it was 4 years ago when we first went to the Thanksgiving Buffet. However we were embarrassed when we receivee the check seeing the price had increased and not listed on the Open Table site. Due to some quick scrambling, we were able to paybout bill. However we shall not make this mistake again by coming to the Blue Ridge room again. Also the handicapped parking was horendous. Very little accommodation for parking, making thr experience for my wife difficult. It was overall NOT a good experience for us.

Excellent selection for the money you spend. Food was well prepared. I went to friday night seafood buffet and was quite pleased. Wait staff are professional and readily present and kind. Atmosphere is very inviting

We went for a Sunday brunch with another couple. There was so much food available that you couldn't even eat one of everything. There was a room full of hot food, another full of seafood, and one for desserts. They also had a well stocked bloody mary bar. Everything was top notch and the service was great. Would highly recommend just for the experience.

Great atmosphere and good service for the Sunday Brunch. However, the some of the dishes served weren't cooked enough. Tough and super firm vegatables, dry and tasteless prime rib to mention a couple of items. Not worth the money for the food quality they provide.

The Blue Ridge has one of the most amazing buffets I've ever seen. The selection was varied, so there was something for everyone. And everything I tried was delicious. I've never had such creamy mashed potatoes before. The beef melted in my mouth. The collard greens were worthy of seconds. And don't even get me started on the desserts! Table after table was full of sugary goodness. I dare you to choose just one! (I couldn't!) If you have a special occasion, or just enjoy fine dining, you need to reserve a table at Blue Ridge now.

Among the vast assortment of foods the standout was the stone ground grits alone and with the shrimp--perfectly cooked! All the seafood was a treat. The desserts were beautiful to behold. Some of breakfast type foods were not as hot as they perhaps could have been at the moment we ate them otherwise everything was great. Jason T. provided "beyond outstanding" service.

For the price you pay I thought the food would be out of this world! Yes it was good but the only dish that stood out was the Mac n cheese. The desserts look wonderful but taste was so so. Our waitress was excellent. Definitely glad we experienced but it will be a one time thing for us.

Took my wife there for her birthday. Had a very delightful evening. We were there for their seafood buffet. Had a great selection of food and the service was great. Great view from everywhere in the restaurant. Would highly recommend for casual evening out or celebration of special occasion.
