Food at Planet Hollywood, LV?

I'm doing a stopover at PH in Las Vegas on my drive down from Utah to So. CA. I'm going to be pretty tired from the drive - 6 hours in the heat - so I'd just like to grab something to eat at the hotel, rather than heading out somewhere. Does anyone have any opinions for the eateries in that facility?
Oh, is there anyplace that you'd recommend for breakfast on the way out of town? I've been to Hash House, but I don't want to drive that far out of my way. Thanks!

    Koi is fantastic. We went with a group and really enjoyed sharing many plates and some sushi. I've also eaten at Strip House, and it was very good, as well. I don't think it is the best steak place in Vegas, but if you want to stay in the hotel you won't be dissapointed. If you're looking for something more casual, they have a sandwich stand there that's decent (I think it's called the Earl of Sandwich or something like that). Not bad for a quick lunch. Also, the Spice Market buffet there has received pretty good reviews on here, although I haven't tried it myself. Good luck.

      I second Koi, Grab a few sushi rolls at the bar....relax! Some of the best sushi and Japanese inspired cuisine I have had in Vegas...and you don't have to leave the hotel.

        I know I won't be stuck, but after all day and getting to Vegas in the evening, I don't think I'll be up for anything but walking downstairs and getting something to eat and going back upstairs and vegging out. If I feel better than I think, I will consider walking across the street or next door. Koi may fit the bill - a little something to eat and then back upstairs. I haven't had sushi in awhile, so that would be fun.
        On the way back from L.A, I'm stopping for 2 days in Vegas, staying at my usual Mandalay Bay. Breakfast at the Verandah is already on the return schedule, as is breakfast at Bouchon. I was thinking of something along Las Vegas Blvd heading south or something off of I-15.

            Actually, a chain will be fine for a quick breakfast. I have never been south of Mandalay Bay, so I didn't know things had been built up. I won't worry about breakfast, then.

              If you keep heading south on the strip you will hit the South Point Hotel. They have a great Value on their breakfast buffet...$5.95.
              It's nothing out of the ordinary....but a large selection,,,,,omeletes made to order, carving station, scrambled eggs w/ smoked salmon.....etc.
              I stay there frequently for business......it's big, bright, clean..and new!
              You can hop right on I-15 @ Silverado Ranch....next to the hotel.

              You will also find and IHOP on the South strip and Bootlegger Bistro serves breakfast as well

              ....all south of Mandalay Bay.

                Now I know that I can just drive South and get breakfast! I just didn't want to back track up the Strip or over to HH. A little breakfast and a HUGE coffee, and I'm good to go until I hit Barstow - gotta make the traditional McDonald's stop there :-)

                  You know there's a drive thru Starbucks in Baker - that's become a traditional stop for us, but we usually go in.

                  On our last trip we went to the South Pointe for the first time (to play cards) and it seemed pretty nice - I might try the buffet there, if I were you.

                    The Huevos Rancheros @ the Verandah in the Four Seasons. Right by the highway entrance so you'll be good. Great last meal in Vegas.

                    I'm a fan of Big Sur Oyster Bar at South Point, too.

                      It's been years and years since I've done this drive. I didn't know there was a Starbucks in Baker. All that used to be there was Bun Boy. I think we did Barstow because it was the last good place to get gas for the car going from L.A.. out to Lake Mead. As for McDs, well, it was there and it was a "known" quantity.

          Can't help you with the PH restaurants, but can suggest Verandah at Four Seasons (attached to Mandalay Bay) for breakfast on your way out of town. Alternatively you can easily walk to Paris or Bellagio - seriously, only a five-minute walk to either, so you're not really stuck in PH. In Paris, you could eat dinner at Mon Ami Gabi or the Burger Brasserie, or have breakfast at their buffet which is considered one of the better buffets in town, or grab a pastry and coffee at Lenotre. At Bellagio, you could have breakfast at their buffet or coffee shop which has decent food. For dinner, there are lots of places at Bellagio. FIX, Michael Mina, etc.
