Food is always good, but never great. Prices are higher than I would like, but service is always good.

Besides the Grand Geneva , in town restaurants to go to are Popeye's and Harbo-rside Pub And Grill. Which is located by the shops and near the boats.

Buffet has nice selection, including lox. Even though dining room is often quite busy, trays and items are kept well filled and fresh. Only problem was that menu ordered omelette was very slow in coming out of kitchen.

Dinner buffet didn't have a lot of choices, breakfast buffet was excellent. Ate at the Chophouse on another visit and that was really good, a little expensive though.

Loved the breakfast buffet at the Grand Café. We had breakfast here on Sunday and the price was completely reasonable with lots of options. The omelet I had was great and our server was fantastic, so sweet.

We had a table overlooking the pool. Service was good and all four of us enjoyed our food. I had the spinach salad with tuna and thought it was outstanding. Two our our party had the chicken quesadeas. The portions were so generous that they couldn't even finish them.

The food was good; however because it is near the pool, there were too many flies flying around. I mentioned it to a server who acknowledged this was a problem they are trying to correct. Was very difficult to enjoy the food.
