Grove Park Inn, Asheville, NC

A neighbor thought I'd be impressed by the Grove Park Inn so we went and I treated. I will not be going back there again for the food. It was EXTREMELY overpriced. My crab cake sandwich with "remoulade" sauce was really a tiny bit of tarter sauce. The sandwich and a tiny bit of iceberg lettuce and a tasteless looking mealy slice of tomato. It came on a toasted hamburger bun and half of the plate was covered with greasy potato chips. If there wasn't lemon served with the water which I used to squeeze over the crab, the crab would have been completely tasteless. There was no salt on the table and both the crab and the potato chips needed salt. The price tag was $19. The view was gorgeous but NOT worth the price of the lunch. Go for a drink but NOT the food.

I also live an hour and a half away in SC where there are lots of restaurants but extremely few worth writing home about but MANY chains and lots of overpriced mediocre restaurants with bland food. This place in Asheville had equally unimpressive food.
