The spread takes up 3 rooms, is well curated, suits any dietary regimen...and the prime rib was excellent! The selection of foods and selected dishes is tasty, and we plan to return regularly. Highly recommend

This was our second trip to Grove Park for the Friday night Seafood buffet. There were so many wonderful things about the buffet to write about. The displays are visually pleasing. Take a stroll through the buffet rooms prior to plating up. You need a game plan as to an approach strategy. Being my second time around, I better understood... More

Extremely disappointed with my visit here with family for Easter brunch. The room was extremely dark & uninviting. The view that they tout is visible for only the few tables lining the windows- the rest of y'all are in a cattle-call-type cafeteria that you would expect better for for what you are paying for this experience. (and they had the... More

We ate here last night and really enjoyed it. They have hot and cold crab legs, oysters on the half shell, and many other dishes. There is one room for hot items, one room for cold items and salads, and a room for desserts. We liked it so much we decided we will go back tonight for the Prime Rib... More

My husband and I ate here three mornings. Everything was delicious. My favorite was the egg frittata. It was delicious! We also spend two mornings eating continental only. It's cheaper and mostly bread, cereal and fruit, but they do have smoked salmon (protein) which is nice. Gorgeous view! Dinner was great. It was seafood buffet night and everything was great....
