“Nice to check out while strolling around”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

I am not sure that this place is THE destination, but the architecture is gorgeous and it is nice to see stores that are not chains. You don't need a lot of time though - it's pretty small. Looks like there would be a lot of fabulous outdoor dining around there as well, though we went early in the day and didn't take advantage of that.

“Interesting building with great story history!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

The architecture is amazing. Mr. Grove left a lot of interesting details. There are good shops inside, some high dollar, but also reasonable stores, like the yarn store and Mountain Made. Check out Page street is restaurant row at the Grove Arcade. Don't forget to check out the local art and crafters on the south side of the building, the Outdoor Portico. All local handmade products, open 7 days a week, but busiest on the weekend. Be sure to visit these 12 outdoor booths.

“Beautiful building, not much else to see”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Glad we went because the building itself is beautiful, interesting, and a concept in shopping long gone. There were a few nice art shops but not really enough to spend a lot of time there. We were there at 10 AM so did not get to experience any of the dining. Seems there are multiple choices and maybe that's where the customers are.

“Delightful, cool shopping experience”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

The Grove Arcade is in a beautiful, restored building. It's air conditioned and skylights let in lots of sunshine. The shops inside are top quality. There are outdoor kiosks for additional shopping. Fresh produce is available as well as a nice selection of plants. Other shops offer nice home furnishings and clothing.
