This place is always busy, which is a good sign, I guess. My boys like to go because they can all get something different and service is fast because it's a buffet. There really is a lot of variety - I usually get the salmon, while my kids eat steak or chicken. Plenty of sides and a large salad bar,... More

There were more choices here than the buffets have near my hometown. Most all of the dishes were hot and tasty. Our waitress was very welcoming and helpful.

I couldn't believe all the items and choices we had. The meats, the vegetables, the sides, the salad bar, and the desserts were outstanding. The variation of many presentations, many different meats, and the freshness of everything was impressive. The place was packed during the hours of 12 to 3 pm (when we were there). The staff handled every thing... More

This place has a fantastic buffet, great tasting salmon, steaks, blackened fish, baked potatoes, ham, burgers, dogs, the list could go on forever. But the best part is that it tastes great, not your regular buffet food. Go try it!

While I live in VA Beach, the majority of my family lives in Charlottesville. Whenever I pay my family a visit, there are two places that are a must- #1 being Grandma's house of course and #2 being Wood Grill Buffet. This place deserves 5 stars year-round. There's almost not a single food that you can imagine that is not... More

It's not as big as other buffets like Golden Corral but it size does get the job done. it was a line on the weekend but they seat you fast. The food was great it remind me of a cookout but indoors like a family... More

This is our go to place when we are in town. Easy on the pockets if you have four or more people in your party. Servers are nice. Management should focus a little more on buffet cleanliness and presentation (food piled up so high it falls in other food areas and kitchen help picks it out and puts it back... More

Great buffet with tons of choices! If you leave hungry, that's your fault 😆 The staff are extremely courteous and always smiling.

We have enjoyed the dinner buffet as well as the breakfast buffet (offered on weekends). The food is tasty and of high quality (I'm very picky on buffet foods). The weekend breakfast buffet offers made-to-order omlettes with a nice variety of choices. The wait staff is great keeping the water glass, coffee cup, etc. full and the used plates removed.

I'm not really big on eating buffet's, but this is the exception. Any time we travel through Charlottesville, we have to stop here. I love the carving stations, and the have the best country sides too. Great mash potatoes!!
