Mohegan Sun vs. Foxwoods, which Sunday brunch buffet is better?

I've read positive reviews about both casino's Champagne brunch buffets. Is one superior to another in anyway? Thank you.

  1. I haven't had the buffet brunch at the Mohegan, but comparing the regular buffets, the Mohegan's is horrible. Foxwood's regular buffet is excellent and their Sunday champagne brunch is wonderful. I can't see a brunch being able to be any better it's so good. Freshly put out and everything from sushi to carving stations to breakfast items and everything inbetween.

      you wrote your review in 2007. the new mohegan seasons buffet blows away the foxwoods buffet.

      1. re: marvdm

        Agreed. The only thing Mohegan's breakfast buffet doesn't have is an omelette guy with personality, and I can live without that. Dunno if he's still at Foxwoods, but that guy was a hoot.

        edit: Well, chow seems to have misordered this post. It was in response to marvdm.

      1. My daughter and I ate at the Foxwoods Buffet before seeing the Titanic exhibit. The buffet sucked so bad it should be closed. Here are some details:

        Long wait in the cattle pen (roped off area like the ones at amusement parks, but without the fun ending).

        Cramped, lousy table w/persistent fly tickling my foot the whole time.

        Patrons have very poor buffet manners (touching food w/hands, dumping unwanted food back in the serving dishes, dropping food into other food dishes, missing their plates and leaving food on the buffet sides...and on and on...)

        Meat almost all fat. Foods heavily sauced w/cheese, butter, oil. Salad bar had defrosted veggies, and a limited selection of healthy/fresh veggies (mayo laden "salads" reign).

        You would think the patrons have never eaten, and will never eat again, with the gusto they loaded their plates and returned again and again.

        Yuck. The whole experience sucked. I'll never go back. I hate myself for wasting a culinary experience, but my daughter begged. I should have just told her we would stop at an ice cream store on the way home and she could order whatever she wanted. My bad.

          Thank you for your candid report. It reminds me of a bit by comedian John Pinette about Vegas buffets. If you get a chance, listen to/watch it...hilarious!

            I agree to everything you said. We had the buffert at Foxwoods on 7/12/15. I was so disappointed. We use to go there a lot havn't been since a year ago. The food especially the meat was terrible. The server at it all cut up in chuncks. It was tough salty. I don't what kind of meat it was. They use to serve prime rib but his wasn't even steam ship round. The servers and what they were using to clean the serving stations was discusting. They like just throw the food in front of you. I put a complaint in to the attendent and the answer I got you have to go on line.

            They ought to get another chef and a overall of the place. It will be a long time before I go back.

            Try Mohegan this is a better experience.

        2. I think Stuck in Hartford is referring to the regular Sunday brunch at Foxwoods buffet restaurant in the Cedars Hotel. Burke's Prime at the Pequot Tower Hotel puts out a great champagne brunch, No lines, no cattle pens.... reservations are necessary. It's really very good. Sushi and raw bar, omelet station, carving stations, the usual eggs benedict(which weren't overcooked for a change), several lunch./dinner entrees and sides as well as stuffed french toast, bacon, sausage, etc. There's a large dessert spread with cakes, pies, chocolate fountain, etc. They bring fresh made beignets to the table which are wonderful! The last time we went, we had to ask for them because the server forgot to bring them. The service isn't the best but it's acceptable. It's $39.

            You are correct. It was my first visit and I didn't realize they had another buffet (which sounds much better and is only a few dollars more). Maybe we'll plan ahead, for a change, next visit!

              If you go, check the table next to Burke's that has promo materials on it. Last time we went, there were coupons for $10 off each. We wouldn't have know about it but the people at the table next to us were very nice and told us about them. A real deal for $29.
