Celebrate Mom with a Festive Feast as Grand as Its Location


The weather for this year’s Easter Buffet was amazing, and the staff at The Grand Summit Hotel is very appreciative to all of the guests who chose the Hotel to celebrate this most important holiday on the Christian calendar.

This year’s early Easter means for a longer break in between Easter and mom’s big day, meaning a trip back to the spectacular buffet is in the cards. This year’s new additions of Monkfish Piccata and Chicken Coq Au Vin did not disappoint, and the Mother’s Day Buffet will be sure to improve on an impressive Easter spread.

“The Easter Buffet is always such a great event for the hotel,” says long time Director of Catering Jimmy Thornton. “The look on the kids’ faces when they see the Easter bunny and the balloon artist is priceless.”
