We were at the Grey Rock for an outdoor wedding for 200+ plus people. The background view of the lake was simply stunning. Music speakers were great. White chairs for sitting were fine too. Would have been helpful if they would have put wedding signs in the ground with directions saying this way for wedding so and so. Was a... More

Was at the Heidel House for a business meeting for two nights and had dinner at the Grey Rock, starting with Happy Hours in the Grey Rock lounge. Bernie the bartender had a nice, welcoming, low key style and he took very good care of us. For dinner, we were in the glass rooms overlooking the lake. Absolutely gorgeous! Worth... More

The prices and amount of food received are not in line. I ordered the Trio, which is advertised as three appetizers for a meal. I received 1 scallop, 2 medium sized shrimp, and a small bowl of maybe 6 mushrooms. The scallop was delightful, and I am sad I only received one. The shrimp were tough, unflavored, and dry. The...

The site and our table were lovely. Our waitress was great, but unfortunately, the food was not. The scallop appetizer was OK, but nothing on the entree plate seemed to be salted or seasoned at all, and in fact, the salt and pepper on the table were even in the wrong shakers. The included salad was not of the caliber... More

Excellent tasting menu provided by the chef along with drink pairing to complement each course. Affordable ($44/person) and the right amount of food to enjoy but not feel stuffed. Just a short walk from the Heidel House. Definitely recommend at least one meal there if you are staying at the resort.

We were very excited to have gotten a reservation at Grey Rock for the weekend of Valentine's day. The resturant is quite beautiful, and the staff was eager to please.

A very neat atmosphere in a historic former mansion. We had reservations but still had to wait over an hour to be seated due to a rush at 7pm on a Friday night, though the bartender was very friendly and made it a pleasant wait. The food was flavorful and well prepared, though my husband's steak was slightly overcooked. I... More
