The cafe is in a storybook cottage . Visit the gallery,museum and gardens then have lunch or dinner at the cafe. The menu is limited, but what is offered is done well. Service staff are charming. My only critique would be the very plain decor inside , perhaps the craft gallery artisans could display some of their work .

This is a lovely, quiet, neighborhood type cafe on the grounds of The Grove Park Inn. Our food was excellent, but our waitress was not attentive. She brought water without ice, and we had to ask twice for that. She said she did not know how to make a Manhattan on the Rocks, so I instructed her and when it... More

Very hard to find in the dark, but, worth the search. The food was excellent and the staff very polite and nice. I had the trout which was prefect, and the potatoes were done just right. We skipped desert as we had already been there almost 2 hours. From the time we ordered it took almost 45 minutes for the... More

We were so looking forward to having dinner at the Grovewood Cafe. The historic building is wonderfully quaint. As we walked from our car to the entrance, we were excited to see the interior. What a disappointment! There is a complete disconnect between the exterior and the interior of the restaurant. There are interesting prints and memorabilia of the Grove... More

We had a nice early dinner here. Found hostesses to be very friendly and accommodating, servers very personable. Meal was good, priced reasonably. Ambience a bit lacking, as other diners were slobs, frankly. (I guess people figure if they can afford the food, they'll wear what they feel like...) I don't want to return to the days of dress codes,... More

Great spot for lunch. Good selection and very tasty. Classy but not pricey. I would go again if I had the chance.

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!
