The worst for sure was when DH & I both ordered the "beef" option, thinking we would get a steak or filet. What came out was a pile of Arby's style processed sliced "roast beef" with some jar gravy over the top.
Almost every wedding I've ever been to has had fried chicken and beef tips, with sides of mashed potatos, gravy, green beans, and cole slaw. Family style chicken dinner. This may be a WI thing.
I've been to maybe one wedding that had the plated options, but it doesn't stick out in my mind.
Worst were when the plated chicken entrees were flavorless and dry. Also not a fan of fondant cake.
Best include upscale appetizers, a buffet that had butternut squash risotto as a side, a family style italian dinner with really great chicken (either marsala or picatta--I don't remember) and sides, cookie tables, dessert options other than regular cake (grooms cake made out of krispy kreme donuts!).
The ultimate best was my first and only station experience. Pasta station, carving stations, asian station, salmon made to order station (excellent), cheesecake station....I couldn't eat enough at that wedding.
I have never attended a station wedding, but I would love to. I can't quite wrap my head around what it would be like in person, but I've heard great things about those who have chosen to have stations.
Best food: Mexican truck style tacos. They were so good and athentic mexican food. They were made when you get up to the window but the line still moved pretty fast.
Worst: It was an mid-afternoon wedding and lunch was not provided. It was mostly finger fruit and veggies, and some small servings of chicken salad (Yuck!). There wasn't much to eat and it wasn't filling by any means. We went to buffalo wild wings after and got good chicken.
