AYCE Crab Legs (All You Can Eat Vegas Buffet)

gwleong Jul 16, 2012 07:31 PM

Are there any updates to the latest buffets in Las Vegas that feature all you can eat crab legs?

Looking for great tasting crab legs at fairly reasonable prices.

Thanks in advance for posting!

    I was at mandalay over the 4th of July holiday and had the brunch on the 4th. I think it was most likely a special menu, but they had warm crab legs there and they were very good and sweet. Not overly salty or watery. I don't remember the price bc it was comped, but I will guess about $25/p.

    I still think the M resort's buffet is the best. I've been there many times and never am I disappointed. I did not like Planet Hollywood, Wynn, or Bellagio. The Rio (both buffets) have let me down in recent years. I haven't gone back.

      South Point (on the strip but a few miles South) has all-you-can-eat crab legs at its seafood buffet on Friday nights. The cost is $22.95, but with their Club card, it is $18.95. If you are staying at the hotel, you can use the half-price buffet coupon they give you at check-in to reduce your cost to $9+. Crab legs were pretty good and you can get them hot or cold. They also have a number of oyster and shrimp dishes.

        About 10 years ago I wanted to try the Seafood Buffet at the Rio but like this poster I had a 10 year old who ate like a bird and nothing seafood. I called the Rio and the girl told me "if you bring in his food we won't charge you", I said like what and she said "stop at Mc Donald's and get him a happy meal". I didn't do that but got him a slice of pizza at the pizza place in the Rio and sure enough they didn't charge me for him. It worked again about a year later too but then he discovered he loves crab legs so that blew that!
        My recommendation for a buffet with crab legs is the M Resort at the way south end of the strip, call there and see what they can offer you for your girls, it doesn't hurt to ask! They have seafood buffet Friday night and all day Saturday and Sunday, it's not cheap but I think well worth it.

          What do you consider to be a fairly reasonable price?

            I would say approx $25 for adults, maybe half that for kids under 12.
            I noticed some places don't list 'kids' prices for buffets. I have 2 girls, ages 7 and 9, who eat like birds....definitely will not eat $25 worth of food!

              I only know of one buffet that offers a discount for children. It's the Orleans and its $3 off for children who are 4-7 years old. I doubt you're going to find another buffet with a children's discount, especially for the age of your children. The Fremont, it's located downtown, has a seafood buffet on Tuesday and Friday that is $19.99 per person. The Orleans has a Friday seafood buffet that includes crab legs for $18.99 per person. I doubt you're going to find a buffet serving crab legs in your price. Also, you're going to have to pay full price for your children. The buffets only serve crab legs at dinner. The better buffets on the Strip that serve crab legs run in the $35 range.

                And I beg of you...don't do the Fremont seafood buffet! MASSIVE waste of money. I'm not a buffet snob, the SO quite enjoys them and I'm happy if only to enjoy AYCE crab and shrimp. But the seafood at the Fremont was horrible and the atmosphere was down right depressive.
