Granlibakken Dining

Granlibakken's buffet breakfast is served daily to all resort guests who book direct. Breakfast can be purchased individually at the front desk for non-guests and all guests who do not book direct through Granlibakken.

Conference & resort guests can experience our kitchen's creative flair and skilled culinary cast which is dedicated to pleasing every guest's palate. Everything from a casual outdoor barbecue or theme dinner to a formal gala is within their scope, so let your creativity run wild. The Cedar House Pub is open Thursday - Sunday for dinner during the winter season serving an all new menu for this season.

Our private events have elaborate buffets featuring dishes like Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, Mahi Mahi Sauté, and Top Sirloin with Maitre D'Hotel Butter and a "build your own soup and sandwich" lunch buffet, to theme dinners and elegant banquets with dishes like Petite Filet Mignon and Shrimp Sauté, Granlibakken's staff prepares a variety of savory dishes to suit your group's taste.

In addition to mouth watering hors d'oeuvres, main courses, and deserts, Granlibakken offers a complete wine and beer list, as well as a full bar.

Granlibakken has great food, anyone who has stayed here can tell you that. From our hot buffet breakfast included with all direct reservations and served daily, to our conference meal plans that offer a variety of different options to suit even the most discerning diner, we pride ourselves on serving amazing meals. However, it is not often that we get the opportunity to win awards for our food, and the Autumn Food & Wine Festival is something our staff always looks forward to--as both a challenge and a chance to showcase our amazing food.

Next time that you’re at Granlibakken, we are sure that you will find your own winning pairing of food and wine (or orange juice, if it is breakfast). The kitchen staff are constantly working to create meals that are delicious and exceptional, and there is something for everyone.
