Hubby always chose the buffet, while I ordered different breakfast items like the frittata and the eggs benedict. Leisurely pace, definitely not "fast food" if you order from the menu.

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.

Had a wonderful breakfast here. Next day we came back for lunch and the buffet deal was economically. Food and service were wonderful

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.

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
