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

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!!

We have stench here numerous times. The buffet is huge, offering everything from steak to seafood and chicken. It has lots of vegetables and large selection of desserts. Our waitress was very attentive. Great place for good price. It's always busy. That should tell you something.

Haven't been here in a long time. They have changed some things and they are not as good as before. Other things are just as tasty and you won't leave hungry. Wait Staff is very friendly and on top of things.

2 seniors, 2 parents, 1 fourteen year old and one eight year old with allergies. We all had plenty to eat and everything was delicious. The eight year old was fascinated with the chocolate fountain. We enjoyed it so much that we went back for lunch.
