Our visit to this historic building was promising, but we left disappointed. Service was fine and the place is cute, but we ate inside and the patios outside are cuter. After we ordered, three selections of bread came out -- little cinnamon raisin muffins, tiny cheddar biscuits and dill rolls. All were tasty. We both ordered the same entree, a... More

The food at the cafe is the most reasonably priced at the resort and is the best tasting in my opinion. I had the lobster mac n cheese and it was very good! I have never had anything bad at the cafe! Lunch for two people was $32.00 and well worth it!

This cafe is in a lovely setting and the only place you can walk to from the Grove Park Inn. I went there two nights in a row, so I feel that I can give a fair appraisal. On the first night, with a group of 8 with a reservation, we were seated right away. Drinks served promptly, and food... More

Great little spot to eat outside... We decided to go here because we had a groupon and we are glad we did go. The bread options where good as well as the fried green tomatoes but, make sure you have them put a lot of parmesan cheese on them. And the rainbow trout was good if we where near by... More

I have eaten here many times. I went on a Thursday night. It was nice and quiet. The drinks were cold and the food was hot. I ordered Chicken Paillard. Wow, that is moist and spiced perfectly.

Took Grayline tour from visitor center too Grove Park Inn. Stepped over to the cafe for a bite with wife and my parents. Quick seating and service. Excellent recommendations from wait staff. Only slightly pricy considering the location, but a delicious and timely lunch for 4 with drinks for under 70 bucks before tax and tip. Was able to get... More

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner at the Grovewood Cafe and the experience was entirely positive. Larry (the chef owner) was really easy going and cooperative, which is the main reason I chose the Grovewood. He and I went back and forth on the menu and always came to a mutually satisfactory food option. They had a really nice two... More

We had a Groupon so that is the main reason we tried Grovewood Café, and that it was located next door to Grovewood Gallery where we had decided to stop and look around. We were the first patrons there and choose a table outside. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. We started out with the soup special, Seafood Chowder, it... More

They recognize us when we visit. Interesting variety of tasty foods, including bread basket at outset. Service was excellent. Took too long this trip as they had exceptionally large party to serve. 4 of us really enjoyed this place. Comfortable to talk. Eat first, then, take walking tour of Grove Park Inn, showing it off to visitors.
