Wonderful location, great buffet! We had such a good time at the grand hotel luncheon and tour. It was so nice to have it all paid for ahead of time, no fuss, no muss. We were escorted right into the dining room and were seated right by a window overlooking the famous porch. The buffet had many selections: a cheese and bread table, hot entrees, a seafood table, salads and vegetables, and a huge selection of desserts. Afterwords we toured the hotel, grounds and don't miss the 4th floor cupola bar! You have an unbelievable view of the lake.

What a beautiful experience! Having never been to the grand hotel, i was extremely pleased from start to finish. Someone met us in the lobby and informed us as to what we were to expect and guided us on our way. A hotel map was presented to us for our convenience in touring the hotel. I am speechless when it comes to the buffet. An enormous variety of gourmet foods with wait staff that was beyond superb. We sat in the rockers on the front porch and then walked the grounds. Couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience that left so many wonderful memories.Two thumbs up!!
