You are paying $37 per person, the food is good but not worth that price. Especially for most of us who can't eat alot at one sitting. That being said you are paying for the experience of being at the Grand Hotel. I enjoyed the...More

We had a great lunch. The buffet had everything you would want or expect for lunch. Half my family is vegetarian and we had lots to choose from.
