family friendly and delicious

Had the Sat night buffet. Food options were great and of high quality (which does not always happen on a buffet). Service was very attentive and the entire place is very family friendly. They even have a children's buffet complete with mini sliders, jello and mac and cheese.

We concluded our stay at the Grand Geneva with breakfast at the Grand Cafe. Most of our party had the breakfast buffet, which is a great option if you are hungry and want a little of everything. However, if you order off of the menu, expect to wait 30 minutes for your breakfast. The people who had the buffet were... More

4 of us were at the Grand Geneva Resort for a Xmas show. We stopped for something small to eat before the production. We were seated promptly. We all had the French Onion soup. We asked the server how it was, she replied that it is a little salty but very good. We all ordered it. It was a little... More

The ''Prime Rib Buffet'' has changed. We like that it has always been roasted with the Chime bones attached. We like eating "boneless" prime Rib. The chef is instructed to cut the "fat cap" off it leaving only the ''eye'' (they are now serving "eye" roast). I ask "what do they do with that fat cap cut off" ? The... More

food was very good and lots of it...had a nice window view and the prices were not crazy... It did close early so for casual dining you had to eat in the bar (same food) but game one so it can be loud

Menu was very limited for lunch and both of us had French onion soup that was ver sweet. Very strange for the broth to be so sweet. Salad and breads were fantastic along with the flavored tea.

Order from the limited menu, it's much better than the buffet and cheaper too. $20 for all you can eat? $8 pancakes was better. $30 for all you can eat dinner? umm, no. The bar is also over priced, $10 for a pint?

I loved that they served Starbucks right in the hotel! With a day busy with break out sessions it was nice to grab a pick me up!

Good food and a lovely place. Only complaint- the soup was on the gluten-free menu, and I told the waitress I needed gluten-free, but the soup came with croutons on top.
