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.

We made reservations which I would say you have to have to eat here. Especially for brunch. It was our anniversary and everyone made sure to say Happy anniversary and at the end of our meal they brought out macaroons on on a plate and it said Happy Anniversary! It was such a nice touch. A mimosa was included in the price, but the spread of food was well worth every penny. We are already planning a trip back to try the seafood buffet!

The dining room staff were very helpful to the point of resolving a problem I had because I could only find parking in a zone for another business. They contacted the other business and received assurances my car would not be towed.

This restaurant is at the Grove Park Omni and has fantastic views of the mountains! We went for the Friday night seafood buffet and were seated at a window with a view of the mountains. The restaurant has three separate "rooms": one is nothing but desserts including a bananas foster table, one room has cold foods including salads, oysters, shrimp, crab legs, etc, and one room for hot foods which has a pasta station, steak, many seafood options, soups and sides. The food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive. Highly recommend this place!

We arrived for Sunday brunch and was given a tour of the THREE rooms of food.....amazing! We were then escorted to our table by the window with beautiful views of the mountains.
The shrimp grits were delicious as well as the oysters.... My husband says the best! Everything we had was superb.....wish we could have tried so much more. Everyone was so nice and accommodating especially Denise. We loved it.

Visited the Blue Ridge while at the Grove Park Inn for our anniversary. The buffet was very good. Plenty of options from prime rib to shrimp to chicken to brisket and fish. Everything was very well prepared and tasty. It is tough to do but save room for the dessert buffet...chocolate nirvana. The price may seem high but it really is reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Highly recommend.

Juan was very attentive and responded to all our needs. However, we were disappointed in the overall quality of the food. There seemed to be more attention to quantity. The ambiance was great and the views spectacular.

We went for Sunday brunch. The service was warm, friendly and attentive. The variety of food was amazing and there was something for everyone. Everything we ate was delicious. The view was outstanding! Can't wait to go back again.

This was our second time going to Blue Ridge and it was just as great as the first time! I wish I had a bigger appetite so I could have ate more of the delicious food! We were here announcing our first child and it was such a nice environment to do so in.

The seafood buffet was sensational! Everything was very fresh and delicious. Outstanding service and friendly staff. And nothing can match the views you get while have a fantastic dinner at sunset either!
I would highly recommend it and we would definitely come back!

The seafood buffet on Friday nights is always a pleasure, with a wonderful selection of cold and hot dishes. Being so far from the coast, I especially love the fresh shrimp and crab legs.
The view is a large part of the experience, and most tables offer a not-to-be-missed scene of downtown Asheville and the mountains.

The seafood buffet at the Blue Ridge Dining Room at the Grove Park Inn is incredible. I drove 3 hours just to enjoy it while I was in the area. I always try to play a Friday night stay in the Asheville area so I can go to this great meal. The views from the dining room are some of the best of the skyline of Asheville as well as the Blue Ridge mountains. The service is wonderful and the food is excellent. It's a truly wonderful experience. I cannot recommend it high enough.

The food was outstanding and the variety unbelievable, no matter what you liked in terms of seafood. The signature dish was the seared scallops and bacon salad. The fried shrimp were lightly breaded and quite tasty, with a unique seasoning. The catfish filets were ok, but a little too much breaking and like most places overcooked. Although we are not dessert eaters we savored the bananas foster. They were good, but not on a par with Brennan's. It was a wonderful dining experience. The only really negative part of our dining was the exhorbitant price of cocktails, compared to anywhere we have ever been, including New York. However, having observed the crowd in the lobby and bar, it is easy to see management takes advantage of the opportunity.

Only negatives: Our server knew she was getting her 20% so she wasn't so quick to care if we needed anything. I also know we were overcharged for how many drinks we ordered. She added items and thought we wouldn't notice. Other than those two points- everything was great! The food was amazing and the view fabulous.
