Ok. So maybe I'm being picky but oftentimes we build up a places reputation from what others are saying. In this case we have heard rave reviews over and over about Wood Grill (WG). It's that reason that my wife and I took the drive to Charlottesville to experience the place and honestly...it's mediocre. Lots of food does not necessarily mean good food. The best of the experience would certainly be the salad bar with just about everything there, (and fresh), that you could imagine. Really good. But the rest of the buffet was pretty typical fare: fried chicken, fried fish, fried shrimp, meatloaf, crab cakes which were not crab meat, ribs, etc. A good selection of breads and desserts. WG is great if you want a lot to eat and are not necessarily concerned about eating healthy or trying something new. The intact of salt left us both panting for water for several hours later. Now I admit, I'm comparing the place to several of the other buffets that are more ethnic focused: King Buffet for instance which to us is a great experience with things you'd never get anywhere else. So again, it's a good place to eat a lot cheaply but we left feeling let down by the whole thing.
