Best buffet in Las Vegas

  • s

Going to Las Vegas for first time in many years. Any suggestions for a really good buffet?

    1. Best seafood buffet in Vega,s! Easy answer, from a local! Check out the Fremont Hotel on Fremont street, downtown, off the strip. Costs only about $18.00, sports Crab Legs, Oysters, Clams, Mussels, and even Lobster Claws most of the time. Call ahead on that, but everytime I went they had them, about, 5 - 6 times! They have a full bar with italian specialties, desserts, all kinds of things. I was never unhappy, no need to pay $32.00 at Bellagio or Rio for the same thing. This is definately an insiders tip!

        is this the paradise buffet for $15.99 offered on tuesdays, fridays, and saturdays?

        am thinking about checking it out this's the quality of the seafood?

      2. I've been told the one at the Wynn is excellent.

          Wynn used to be good (I went when it recently opened) -- it went WAY downhill upon a revisit a month and a half ago. It's not awful bad (or even bad at all) but definitely overprice for what it is now. :(

          I'd definitely recommend checking out downtown casinos for good, cheap eats. But yea, check the Southwest Boards (surprised LV doesn't get their own), they're sure to have much more insider tips about the ins and outs of chow there ;)

            I had an excellent experience at the Wynn Buffet about a month ago. Perfect meats and seafood and interesting side dishes; nothing was bad, and most was excellent. Worth the HIGH price of admission.

              I was at the Wynn lunch buffet a few weeks ago. I'll agree that it was much better when it first opened. The selections were better and there were more interesting items. Still way ahead of the Bellagio though, especially when it comes to service. When you order hot tea, the hot water comes out and the teabag follows 10 minutes later. Plates aren't cleared. Drinks aren't refilled.

          2. Hate to admit this but I worked at the Wynn last year and I was very disappointed. I though it was overpriced for what you got.

            1. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet in Paris. The atmosphere, the food, and the service were all excellent. We aren't buffet people, and we ate there twice during our stay. If you go, make sure that you try the crepes.
