The best time to visit the Omni Blue Ridge buffet is during breakfast, served daily from 6:30am-10:30am. The price is high at $30+, although offerings really are extensive.

In addition to all the typical breakfast fare, you will get to enjoy fresh made-to-order omelets, fresh squeezed juiced drinks, an oatmeal and chia seed pudding bar, and a donut bar. All the food is fresh and delicious. The presentation is attractive as well. Everything is kept clean and stocked.

A decadent weekend brunch is offered from 11:30am-2:30pm, Saturday and Sundays. The price is a bit higher, however, you can expect a more extravagant display. Lunch buffets are offered Monday-Friday, from Noon-2:30pm. Also, a special dinner buffet is served on Friday & Saturday nights from 5pm-9:30pm.

Also, the holiday buffets are worth looking into if you will be in the region at this time. Quite pricey, although worthy of consideration for the extravagant spread, gorgeous décor, and fantastic scenery. The Thanksgiving and Christmas buffets are especially decadent, although the wait can be long on busy weekends.


Servers are always courteous, prompt, and professional. Plates are consistently cleared and coffee is refilled in a timely manner. As a bonus, coffee to go is always offered. After your meal, enjoy another cup of joe by the beautiful lobby fireplace!


Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the gorgeous Blue Ridge mountains. This is the top place in town if a fantastic view is your prime objective. Every seat in the buffet offers a grand view, however, you can request a window seat for an even better viewpoint.

The buffet itself is well-maintained and constantly restocked. All the offerings are fresh. The room is meticulously clean. The decor is beautiful, especially around the Christmas season.

Be sure to take a walk around the resort after breakfast. Numerous shops, scenic overlooks outside the property, and an enormous lobby fireplace will keep you busy for a while.
