Our company has utilized this property and this restaurant for a few of our conferences. The buffet lunch and dinner has been very good.

The service was very friendly and attentive. They were in recovery mode from a large convention group. Went twice AFTER the group left so we were the only ones there both mornings. The buffet is the way to go as the ala carte menu is priced such that the entree plus the beverage is pretty close to the buffet price... More

Read some reviews about the place and decided to take the family to Mothers Day brunch. Daughter drove up from VCU, we drove down from Northern VA. Fairly basic buffet, the usual dishes. No stand outs. But some items of note: prime rib carving station had dried out pieces being served. They ran out or did not replenish the crab... More

I don't often take time to write reviews but this one must be written to protect the future consumer but more importantly to help the restaurant. We just got back from a Mother's Day brunch that was disappointing on every level. I'm not a food snob and my regular eat out staples are Noodles and Company, Jimmy John's, and other... More

Stayed at the Conferrence Center so the convenience of the breakfast brunch buffet was perfectly convenient. Full service brunch buffet complete with omlet station. Fruit was very fresh and offerings very good. Staff and service very attentive. Highly recommend.

The Glen has a variety of food that one can choose buffet style. Thus, they usually have something that you would like to eat every meal. It is a lot of food, and I cannot complain about the choices at all.

The Glen Restaurant was the perfect place to go to celebrate a birthday. The ambience is that of the Old South including historic wall hangings and artifacts. We were warmly greeted by the hostess and immediately seated with a lovely view of the grounds. The expansive breakfast buffet included juices, fruit, omelets, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, breakfast potatoes, and... More

We opted to order off the menu versus the buffet. We were brought a fruit plate from the buffet, although we ordered a cup of fruit. Eggs were plentiful, with potatoes and 6 slices of bacon. Including beverage, bill was just a little more than a Denny's breakfast.

The food was very good. The salmon and rice was better than the steak I chose. Portions were moderate. Sweet treats were nice which were provided in addition to wedding cake. The wait staff was exceedingly friendly and accommodating.
