Top 10 Buffets in Las Vegas
Get ready to loosen your belt a notch or two. It's buffet time!
If indulgence is the name of the game, then one of the best ways to indulge is dining at a Las Vegas buffet. It seems that every resort has tossed their name into the buffet hat, but some do it better than others. Far, far better.
While prices range from mere pennies (by Vegas standards) to high-priced, there’s truly something for everyone that lets them eat and eat and eat and eat. Well, you get the point. We’ve picked out ten of the best buffets in town based on culinary awesomeness and bang for your buck.
Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan
If you are looking for the ultimate foodie buffet experience, offering everything from sushi to bone marrow, then Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan should be at the top of your list. Its high-end, but accessible and a nice break from the less adventurous buffets in town. Broken into stations, guests can sample Asian, Italian, a grill, comfort food bites (hello, create-your-own mac and cheese), salad and a gorgeous dessert spread. Favorites are the tapas-style plates that let you taste a little bit of everything without overeating. USA Today even named this spot as the best buffet in Vegas in 2012. Go. Eat. You’re welcome. 3708 Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 698-7000 cosmopolitanlasvegas.com
Studio B Show Kitchen Buffet at M Resort
It may be off The Strip, but Studio B Show Kitchen Buffet is a strong contender for the best buffet in town. It’s less pricey than Strip resorts, but the food is on par with what you’d expect from them. Tuck into the seafood buffet (served Friday nights and weekends) to savour some lobster tail with drawn butter, then let your sweet tooth loose with some made-to-order crepes. Unlike other buffets in town, you can actually watch the action, courtesy of a live-feed of the cooking on TV monitors. And then, there’s the booze. A buffet at Studio B also includes unlimited beer and wine. Score! 12300 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 797-1000 themresort.com
The Strip is home to our third choice, the Bellagio Buffet. With items to choose from like curried duck legs and wild game such as ostrich, this is a food-lovers paradise. It’s live-action here, so you can watch as everything is prepared for you. A diverse selection, think Japanese, Chinese, seafood, American and more, the best time to visit the buffet is for the champagne brunch or the gourmet dinner service Fridays and Saturdays which also includes caviar. Even better, for $12.99, you can add unlimited booze to your unlimited eats. 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 693-8111 bellagio.com
Caesars Palace’s Bacchanal Buffet
With an astounding 500 items to choose from, and nine kitchens, the choices at Bacchanal can leave you a bit overwhelmed, but in the oh-so-good way. Choose from prime rib, crab legs, wood-fired pizzas, enchiladas and more — much more! This buffet was recently entirely revamped for $17 million. You can bet with that price tag, this buffet doesn’t cut any corners on the dining experience. 3570 Las Vegas Boulevard South, (702) 731-7928 caesarspalace.com
The Buffet at ARIA
The Buffet at ARIA isn’t as gourmet as Baccanal or Bellagio, but that’s OK. Sometimes you just want something a bit more mainstream with pizza, a carving station and a pasta station. And ARIA does mainstream very well. Besides, this is the only place with a tandoori oven to deliver tasty items like garlic naan bread. The crowning glory of the buffet is the dessert section, created by Chef Jean-Phillipe Maury. 3730 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 590-7111 aria.com
The Buffet at Wynn
Housed in the swanky Wynn, The Buffet features a whopping 15 live-action cooking stations to prepare you for an all-out gorge fest. Considered to be one of the best buffet options on The Strip, Wynn delivers not only with a huge variety of noms, but also serves up dishes for those who are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. The Buffet also offers a champagne brunch every weekend. 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 770-3340 wynnlasvegas.com
Sterling Brunch (Weekends Only)
Located inside BLT Steak, Sterling Brunch runs every weekend and treats guests to bottomless Perrier-Jouet champagne, mimosas and Bloody Marys plus fresh-shucked oysters, truffled mashed potatoes and more delights including a carving station, caviar and lobster tails. While this brunch clocks in at one of the most expensive on The Strip (hey, we did mention bottomless champagne and caviar, right), it is worth the nearly $100 a person to indulge in this treat. Brunch runs weekends from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. 3645 Las Vegas Boulevard South, (702) 967-7258 ballyslasvegas.com
Cravings inside The Mirage is another buffet option to check out in Vegas. With 11 cooking stations and a beverage station offering 150 Coca Cola flavors (yes, that many exist), it isn’t only delivering guests tasty options, it is delivering them a gorgeous spot, too. Touted as one of the most attractive buffet venues in town, thanks to a fresh look from designer Adam D. Tihany, the praise has been coming in for Cravings. Packed with options from Latin to Asian and everything in between, its worth the time and bucks to grab a table here. Don’t forget the booze, either. The spot has seasonal offers on craft beer and wine, too. Plus, you can also snatch up food to go for a mere $16 a pop. 3400 S Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 791-7111 mirage.com
Le Village Buffet
Le Village Buffet at Paris Las Vegas as some stiff competition in the same casino, thanks to the mouth-watering treats over at Mon Ami Gabi, but that doesn’t stop diners from heading to the all-you-can-eat variety. Like the property it is housed in, Le Village is reminiscent of French villages and offers dining options from five different regions in France, as well as create-your-own crepes and macarons for dessert. Enjoy meals with beverages, including an all-you-care-to-drink specials featuring Blue Moon, Miller Lite, house red or white wine or Bloody Marys for an additional $11.99. 3655 South Las Vegas Boulevard, (702) 946-7000 parislasvegas.com
Garden Court Buffet
Our bet for a Downtown buffet is Main Street Station’s Garden Court Buffet. With a super low price point (we’re talking under $10 for breakfast), there’s a reason why this spot wins the “best of” vote. The options are typical for a buffet — think Mexican, American, Asian and pizza and you get the point. But, there are also theme nights like T-Bone Tuesdays, Steak and Scampi Thursdays, Seafood night on Friday and Prime Rib night to end the week on Saturdays. Weekends Garden Court runs a champagne brunch. 200 N Main St, (702) 387-1896 mainstreetcasino.com
