Great in Hotel Brunch

We ate here every morning for brunch. The brunch was $15 per person and offered a good selection of food (fruit, cereal, breads, warm dishes). For buffet everything was pretty fresh and tasty don't expect 5 star made to order, but definitely a good deal if your hungry.

My family ate here thinking our dinner would've better quality than the Timber Ridge restaurants because it is located in the Grand Geneva. Very disappointed with the small food portions, taste and quality of the food, and the slow service. Steak was not cooked to order, food was served cold, sandwiches are unimpressive. Prices are high too. You do not... More

I have eaten at the Grand Café several times. I have my favorite item here which is the crab cake sliders. Unfortunately they are not always on the menu- usually only at lunch time. This time I ate dinner at the Café. The staff is always friendly but not always the speediest which I don't understand because most of the... More

Maybe if it hadn't been the height of the summer family tourist season, this place might have been better noise-wise. I came here with my brother as we were staying at the resort. We thought it would be handy and the menu offered variety. We sat down in the main area and were seated next to a family with 3... More

This is well above your standard hotel dining room fare...fresh ingredients, nice menu variety and exceptional service with a great view. Enjoyed both breakfast and lunch here and would highly recommend it!

We're pretty particular about food, so we were skeptical of a buffet in a resort hotel. We ordered both the buffet & 2 meals from the menu. It was great. Buffet gives you lots of great options and so does the menu. We had great service too. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Workers obviously do not like their jobs: unprofessional, complaining, and some odd behaviors. I do not recommend eating here, however, the kitchen has no problem: room service from this restaurant produced top-quality meals.

The breakfast took over an hour to be served and completed. Nothing special, just average bacon and eggs. There must be only one cook on weekdays.

Had a spa day with my daughter in laws, thought we would take in a lunch also. Food was mediocre at best. Service was terrible! Our waitress came to take our order, then we did not get our food for 20+ minutes. She never came back to fill empty water glasses and seemed to avoid us while attending to another... More
