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.

The Grand Cafe inside the Grand Geneva Hotel and Spa is the main lobby restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. I have eaten there several times and the service is always good as is the food. As with any upscale fine hotel, the prices are enough to stop the heart, but the food is better than average and the staff really... More

We ate at the Grand Cafe for both the prime rib , seafood buffet and the breakfast buffet. Loved them both. Just enough choices without being overwhelming. Food was delicious!

This hotel is clearly under new incompetent management. This is one of the worst dinning experiences I have ever had. We were a party of 12, asked for the buffet and noticed we had no spoons for the soup. I asked the waitress for a spoon and she said if I needed one to go ask the dishwasher. Since we... More

I'm not a fan of buffets, but the main dinner buffet was pretty good. However the desserts were dried out. The café is located just off the main lobby/lounge. Add kids running around the café, and climbing under tables, and it was pretty loud. We've been here for lunch before and ate off the menu and it was a much... More

Great little restaurant right off the lobby to grab breakfast or lunch. Gourmet food, yet they have kid friendly choices.

We ran in here before the auction that was at the convention we attended was starting hoping to finish and get there in time. Service took quite a while but they were very busy as there were two conventions going on that weekend. They had the best asparagus mushroom soup! Sweet potato fries were good too! We didn't eat there... More

Lunch. We got a table with a great view of the pool and outdoor area. The club sandwich which was very large and tasty. I liked the fruit and cottage cheese side dish options. Downside was that the service was slow. It took a while for our server to get to our table and had a longer than average wait... More

We ate here for a breakfast and supper buffet. Not enough help for number of patrons. Food was average to less than average especially for supper. If it is a couples trip, do not even show up here on a three day holiday weekend.

My wife and I ate at the Grand Cafe with a large business group. It was a Friday night and we all ate at the bufffet, which had many seafood options, as well as your typical fare of salad, sides, and select cuts of meat. It was a very good buffet and everything was very fresh. I am not one... More
