      It's a bit pricier than $40 per head (closer to $100 per head for adults) but the Ritz-Carlton in Naples has one of the most opulent brunch buffets I've ever seen.

        I have had Thanksgiving and Easter brunch at the Ritz Carlton Beach several times. It is a fabulous affair with excellent food and lots of sparkling wine. It might be too late to reserve.

        I no longer go as buffets gross me out these days but this is a family tradition for many southwest Floridians. Call now, if you are thinking of going. It is served in the ballroom.

        $115 pp is quite steep but you get your money's worth with extravagant and expensive food.

            from that list, I'd do M Waterfront Grille, their chef is excellent. not many buffets on that list.

              The Veranda, normally closed on Sundays, will be open for Easter. Check with them for the Easter menu specials. http://verandarestaurant.com/
