If not for the fact that we served ourselves, one could not differentiate the quality and vast choices from those of a multiple course seated dinning experience.

We splurged and ate here for lunch and a tour of the Grand. Our experience far exceeded my expectations. Not only does this hotel take you a step back in time but the food and presentation is like no other. We were able to sample things that we never knew existed and the spread of food was unbelievable. The service... More

If you want to experience the Grand Hotel without the expense of staying on premises, the lunch buffet is a great way to do so. The buffet offers more variety of truly gourmet selections than one could think possible, and it stretches on and on down the middle of the beautiful dining room. It is pricey, but worth the opportunity... More

The luncheon buffet had all kinds of choices - it was hard to chose. But dessert was the highlight, so good...

The food is excellent, the room is lovely and this gives you access to visit the rest of the hotel. Not really a good place to feed small children. The staff is well trained.

Creamy salads, crisp salads, fresh fruit, fresh baked breads with wonderful variety of cheeses, fresh seafood, carving station of slow roasted meats and vegetables so yummy your kids wouldn't believe they are eating veggies. Dessert table is loaded with delicious... More
