The buffets in Las Vegas Casinos keep changing. Once inexpensive options, they’ve now become legendary cuisines prepared by 5-star chefs. They prioritize quality over quantity despite catering to the needs of millions of people.
Which is the best casino buffet in Las Vegas? It depends. Do you prefer low priced food? Or would you rather pay more for a high-end meal? Here are some of the options available in the casinos of Las Vegas.
1: Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
The Wicked Spoon buffet at the Cosmopolitan is designed to satisfy all sorts of cravings and to arouse discovery. To expound more, it provides a blend of quality familiar meals with creatively prepared seasonal food. The dishes are arranged into mini stove pots and take out boxes for orderliness. The line pass is $20, including children above ten years. However, the price is a tad high on Sundays and during special occasions. Which meals can you expect at the Wicked Spoon Buffet? The casino prioritizes meat and pasta-based dishes. In fact, some people often complain there’s so little variety for vegans. Drinks are limited too.
2: The Buffet at Aria
The Buffet at Aria caters to everyone, from meat lovers to vegans and people who only eat gluten-free meals. All you need is to talk to a staff member and they’ll help you discover the best cuisines for you. The prices are competitive- $18 for breakfast, $22 for lunch and $33 for supper. On the weekends, you can pay $39.99 for gourmet dinner, which offers high-end meals in large proportions. For clarity, the buffet at Aria provides a comprehensive list of meals, from hot dogs and burgers to international dishes like Vietnamese soup. The beauty of the food at Aria is incredibly high-quality. So, no matter what you want to eat, you’ll probably love it.
3: Sterling Brunch at Bally’s
Some people call it the mother of all brunches. Others say it’s the stuff of dreams. And considering it costs $100, it should be worth it. Bally’s Casino hosts Sterling Brunch every Sunday, allowing patrons to experience exclusive dishes like bottomless lobsters, rib king crab legs and unlimited champagne. There are finer brunch options. You can take mimosa with fresh shucked oysters, smoked salmon or caviar. Food aside, the serving is top-class. Food is served immediately and you get seated. And it’s cleared immediately you’re finished.
Then you get more options for fabulous dishes you could be interested in. For example, you could treat your taste buds a medium-rare steak—pink all through. Another option is sushi, tuna, California rolls and a host of drinks.
4: The Bacchanal at Caesars Palace
The Bacchanal at Caesars Palace is arguably the best casino buffet in Las Vegas. It ranks first on Kevin Hargrove’s top list. It has won numerous awards and most traveling agents recommend it more often than any other buffets in Sin City. In other words, the Bacchanal at Caesars Palace is the place to go if you want to experience exquisite buffet dining in its purest form. A two-hour ticket for the buffet sets you back $54.99 for meals served before 3pm and $64.99 after that. Like Sterling’s Brunch, the Bacchanal buffet is usually packed. It’s easy to see why. The food is legendary, whether you order breakfast, lunch or dinner meals. Juice is freshly squeezed and the meals are prepared by experienced chefs. There’s a full range of American, European and Asian dishes at the casino hotel. Like the Wicked Spoon, meat-based dishes dominate the Bacchanal, from oysters to gourmet soups, to Texas-smoked brisket to pizza. The only concern is that queues can be pretty long.
5: The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas
Wynn Las Vegas is arguably the best-rated casino in Sin City. So, how good is its buffet? Let’s start with the inviting atmosphere—lavish, airy and comfortable. It’s nowhere close to the Bacchanal in style, but it’s an amazing place. Like many buffets in Las Vegas, Wynn Las Vegas has a decent variety of seafood: oysters, Alaskan crab legs, shrimp and smoked salmon. What’s more, it serves plenty of Asian meals, from fried rice to sushi and spicy tofu. You can also sample Mexican, Deli, American and European cuisines. But beware; the food comes in small plates. So, if you find a delicious meal at one of the sections, prepare to take a few trips to the serving line.
6: Studio B Buffet at the M Resort
Food at Studio B leans to the cheaper side of the spectrum–$16.99 for adults and $11.99 for kids. On the weekends, the prices change to $17.99 for children and $23.99 for adults. In addition to being cheap, M Resort claims they have the best buffet in Las Vegas. How true is that? For starters, it’s expansive, welcoming up to 1062 people at a time. It’s beautiful by design and graced by glass ceilings to provide ample natural light. When it comes to breakfast, Studio B has plenty of made to order options, from macadamia nut French toasts to blueberry pancakes. Then there’s food, which range from authentic Asian dishes to American classics. The casino’s seafood carafe is arguably the best in Sin City according to reviews. And that’s because it’s both good in quality and affordable.
7: The Buffet at Bellagio
The Buffet at Bellagio often attracts sharp criticism for one reason—prices. The casino has a tendency of increasing prices. But far too many times, it does not work on increasing menu options and food quality. Don’t get it wrong – the Buffet at Bellagio isn’t a disappointment. The meat-based dishes are delicious. The seafood is good too but often limited in variety. On the flip side, there’s a good selection of pizza, pasta dishes and vegan dishes. The dessert section is far from legendary. But there’s enough variety to please health-conscious patrons. Another good section is the self-serve drinks area. You can help yourself with both hot and cold drinks without having to pay extra. Another benefit is that the casino doesn’t follow time limits. So, you could book for lunch and stay until dinner meals are introduced.
