A good choice for a special event. I had short ribs and my wife a filet- both were excellent, as was attention from serving staff.

Had a hard time choosing what to eat. Chose fish and it was dry and tasteless. Very disappointed has I have been to The Greenbrier many times before it was sold and the food was always wonderful.

Had the buffet breakfast and it was wonderful. It is a bit expensive but worth the money. So many choices and different types of food. Love the Greenbrier and the main dinning room.

The variety and presentation of the food was impeccable, a vast offering, suitable for all. Some of the Main Dining Room servers have remained in their respective positions for many years and their service is simply the very best a guest could find.

Right from the start you must know that the Greenbriar is expensive . Once you are on board with this you can just enjoy the place . We decided to stay in one of their pricey " cottages. " so breakfast was included . Every morning we ate breakfast in the Main Dinningroom . It is a glorious room and the breakfast selections include everything you can imagine including several omelette stations . This is old world Southern style so forget about the calories and if you eat a really full breakfast you might not want lunch . We tried everything during our stay and had fun doing it .

The help at the Greenbriar are either local residents or people brought in to work from let's say Jamaica . They are unfailingly polite and even sweet . This place is in the middle of nowhere so those surly city types are not here .This fact really helps you relax into the ambiance of this great historic hotel which has managed to endure since the 19th century .

We also had dinner here and we thought it was good but not extraordinary . We suggest you have breakfast here and dinner in the other restaurants .

A local man who has made a fortune elsewhere recently bought the Greenbriar , he did a big remodel and installed a casino . We did not try it . Just sitting outside on our porch in balmy October looking at the Autumn folliage was enough for us .
