An absolute overwhelming brunch experience. They have all the normal brunch services (omelet and carving stations) plus some unique additions such as the build your own eggs Benedict with crab as an option or the made to order shrimp and grits or the crepe station. Other stations include crab legs, jumbo shrimp, oysters on the half shell... Highly recommend this brunch if you are in the area. Reservations recommended and give yourself some time to find a parking spot and walk into the hotel.
Dined on a Friday night for the Seafood buffet. The selection was great and everything tasted wonderful! Definitely ate too much, but who can pass up the bananas foster made in front of you at the buffet to round out the meal?
The food was excellent and the service was great. It was a little pricey but dining at a buffet atthe Grove Park Inn is worth it.
We have been to the Blue Ridge several times. We enjoy the buffet. Good salads, seafood, desserts. Saturday night is prime rib night. We went to try the prime rib and were NOT impressed. It was VERY chewy and bland tasting. Very disappointed. Next time we want prime rib we will save ourselves a trip into Asheville and TEMP_OC_CONTENT_HEREamp;$ and go to our local restaurant The Blue Rooster for Steve’s Friday night prime rib! It is amazing!
Our experience at the Blue Ridge was wonderful. I was disappointed with the Prime Rib it was very tough but the rest of our meal was outstanding and would recommend the Blue Ridge.
Afternoon sun made the window seating nearly unbearable. We were sweating as we ate.
Ceramic floors increased the noise.
Regular food, priced way too high.
Overall was good but disappointed in the Prime Rib. The meat was tough so our group chose to eat other items.
We have visited the Blue Ridge dining room in several occasions and have always had an enjoyable experience. The food is well prepared and enticingly displayed and the service is exceptional. My wife was dismayed to watch a couple seated two tables away from our table with a small dog. We do understand service dogs and their need, however this dog had no service jacket. It is distressing to attend a high end INDOOR restaurant and have to be joined by pets which belong at outdoor restaurants. We hope your facility understands the nature of parasites and pets in a food facility.
We will be making further inquires before making a future reservation.
We make the 2 hour drive to the Blue Ridge Dining Room at Grove Park Inn for the Friday night seafood buffet 2-3 times per year, if possible. It is well worth the cost for the food and atmosphere, for a great evening with friends. Views of the mountains are beautiful.
Poor selection or ordinary foods made to appear "posh". Plain
just went back for the third time since October 2017. it's still better than ever. Our waitress (Keisha) remembered us from last time. They are always friendly and accommodating . This is one of the best places I've ever dined at.
This place was amazing. The food and the service was great.
First time eating here and definitely will return. Great food and excellent service.
Our waitress was Wonderful. She took our photos and when we said we would like additional photos later when we would be leaving, she said she was going off duty but arranged with all of the remaining servers to take the photos, we just needed to ask. Later when we got up to leave another waitress came over and said she understood we wanted additional photos and she would be glad to take them. Outstanding experience. As always the food was wonderful, the view was great and the servers were excellent.
Very salty food but the staff and customer service was excellent
We had a great time celebrating my brother and sister In law’s 25th wedding anniversary. They enjoyed the awesome food and great ambiance.
Excellent food and service! Such a variety of foods and desserts. All was wonderful, including the view! Complimentary mimosas. Thank you!
service was great. I have never had a happier waiter. the food was ok didnt live up to the excited. I thought it would.
It was a buffet setting and the choices were varied and delicious. The staff was pleasant and very attentive
The Buffet is absolutely amazing and the view is as well
We went for the seafood buffet. There is a HUGE selection and the food was good, not great. The reason to go - THE VIEW!!!!!! We went at sunset and the view of the sunset and mountains was fantastic! It is also in the Grove Park Inn, which is a really cool hotel away from downtown. We wished that we would've stayed there vs downtown. The service was very good.
Everything from the food ,view,service to the atmosphere was OUTSTANDING!!!We will definitely be back again.Also Stan our waiter was THE BEST!!!
Great food and wonderful service. Beautiful setting.
The brunch choices were amazing and the food was delicious overall. But many items were on the cold side and definitely detracted from the taste. Service was terrific. Bananas foster was so good.
Food was excellent! Just wish there were a bit more GF/DF selections.
Stan our server was wonderful and the food was great! My friend was disappointed the fried shrimp ran out and wasn’t replenished but I never noticed.
Great buffet! Spectacular view! Lisa was a great server. Looking forward to dining there again.
Jose did a great job and the food was good. Plenty to choose from.
Buffet was even better than we remembered
Fantastic experience as usual. The GPI never disappoints.
It would have been nice if there were more broiled fish items such as shrimp and scallops. At the price I expected more options both fried and broiled. We ate there 2 nights and there just weren’t many vegetables. The desserts were great but at that price you aren’t just paying for fancy desserts.
We bought a vacation home in Asheville several years ago. This was our first trip to see the beautiful Grove Park Inn and to eat there. The Blue Ridge Friday night seafood buffet did not disappoint. We were amazed at the waiter’s attention to detail through the meal. I dropped my spoon and was immediately supplied with a new one without even asking. The food was delicious, as well. We are planning on trying Sunday Brunch during our next trip to Asheville.
Brought the whole family for Easter Brunch. The amount of food on the buffet is massive, but it's just ok food. The view is fantastic. Our waitress was able to clear plates very well, but her personality was lacking. (With 20% added automatically she had no reason to work too hard). Go for the view, but I wouldn't suggest eating here.
Fantastic birthday dinner for father and husband. Everyone enjoyed it including toddler twins!
We had the Friday night seafood buffet and it was amazing. It’s around $50 per person but so worth the money. The view was spectacular and there are three rooms of food!
We went for the Sunday brunch and had a delicious meal. Took the kids and everyone found something they loved. It’s expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.
This brunch was delightful at the Blue Ridge dining room in the Grove Park Inn. Tremendous number of offerings with nice, attentive service.
