Las Vegas is reopening, following suggested public health measures, but what does this mean for your favorite buffets in Las Vegas? It’s time to work up an appetite and put on your comfy pants because many Las Vegas buffets are open and running at full steam, including some of your favorites.
Reopening of Las Vegas Buffets
Buffet dining is one of those things that has taken a bit of a hit over the past couple of years, with all the public health measures that have been put into place. Fortunately, the buffets are reopening and once again welcoming hungry guests through their doors. In a city where buffets are almost as famous as the casinos, this is really a good thing.
We’ve whipped up this list and a handy chart of each Las Vegas buffet that’s currently open. Many are running with only breakfast and lunch buffet hours, but several are also offering dinner buffets on the weekend, if not during the week.

Buffets on the Las Vegas Strip
Casinos and buffets go together almost as well as Elvis and Vegas weddings. The Las Vegas Strip is known for the famous iconic resorts that light up the nights, and many of them have buffets that are just waiting for you to come in and indulge your appetite. Here are the buffets currently open on the Las Vegas Strip.
The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace is considered one of the premier buffets in Las Vegas. The Bacchanal Buffet is not only open, but it’s also newly renovated and features hundreds of delicious potions prepared by specialty chefs.
What makes this buffet stand out is that it’s not just a long line of hot dishes and salads, but it’s also a dining experience. This buffet features open kitchens, and many dishes are prepared right in front of you. This is one of the pricer buffets in Las Vegas, but the selection of worldly cuisine, vegetarian options, high-end cuts of meat, seafood, and endless desserts make it worth it.
The Bacchanal Buffet is open daily for dinner, and brunch is served Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
The Wynn Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas offers an exquisite collection of dishes prepared in sixteen live cooking stations. The Wynn Buffet holds a place among the first generation of high-end Las Vegas buffets. One look at their lineup of more than a hundred entrees and nearly as many side dishes, and you’ll understand why this spot is one of the most popular in Las Vegas.
The Wynn Buffet is open for breakfast and brunch on the weekend and some days during the week. This is when you can enjoy the eggs benedict station (move over waffle and omelet stations, there’s a new player in town!). The dinner buffet serves all of your favorites, from prime rib dinner and seafood to one-of-a-kind dishes prepared in small batch quantities.
The Wynn Las Vegas Buffet also offers cocktails, including Endless Pour cocktails, for an additional charge.
With the Bellagio’s reputation for excellence, you know that this Vegas buffet is going to be filled with delicious options. Buffet lovers will enjoy the international cuisine that features dishes with Italian, Chinese, and Japanese influences. There’s also a nice selection of American fare. There’s one caveat, though. If you want to eat at the Bellagio Buffet, plan on coming a little early because their buffet hours have them closing a little earlier than most.
The Bellagio Buffet is a great place to grab weekday and weekend brunch and breakfast, plus a nice selection of lunch dishes. Be on the lookout for delicious seafood, including snow crab legs, peel & eat shrimp, smoked salmon, and delicate scallop ceviche. If seafood isn’t your thing, make a trip to the carving station, where delicious, perfectly prepared meats await you.
Guests with a sweet tooth will love the selection of desserts, including some sugar-free options, fresh pastries, and a personalized gelato stand.
The Wicked Spoon Buffet in the Cosmopolitan serves up some wicked good food that you won’t find at any ordinary buffet. Let’s start with breakfast, where the selections go far beyond the typical scrambled eggs. For starters, there’s a delicious and fresh breakfast bread station, fresh-pressed juices, an omelet station, and a wonderful selection of salads and savory foods for the non-traditional breakfast person.
The breakfast menu also doubles as the brunch menu and is served until 11 am. After that, the lunch menu hits the well-crafted buffet, with a large Asian station with dim sum, duck wings, crab legs, and a hot pot station. Additional international dishes include samosas, carnitas, and gyros. Yum!
Meat lovers will want to head to the carving station to enjoy slow-roasted prime rib, Wicked fried chicken, bone marrow, top sirloin, and more.
Like some of the other buffets currently open in Vegas, the Wicked Spoon closes before the traditional dinner rush really gets started. So come a little earlier, and bring the family because children ages four and younger eat free!
MGM Grand Buffet
We love that MGM Grand’s Buffet is currently open because this spot embodies everything that Las Vegas buffets are supposed to be. The MGM Grand Buffet is open daily for breakfast and lunch, with all types of selections, including fresh pastries, made-to-order omelets, barbecue ribs, pasta, seafood, soups, and yes, lots of desserts!
While the food at the MGM Grand Buffet is better than what you’ll find at many other buffets, the endless beverages are a major attraction. Champagne brunch at the MGM Grand, anyone?
Fans of the Circus Buffet were greatly disappointed when they began to hear rumors that their favorite family-friendly spot for good eats in Vegas was closing for good. Fortunately, those rumors no longer hold any weight, and the Circus Buffet is open and welcoming you through their doors.
The Circus Buffet is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – with a small break between lunch and dinner when they switch the buffet over. While you’re not going to get a gourmet dinner at the Circus Buffet, what you can count on is some solidly good food that appeals to many different types of tastes. This is one of the reasons that the location is so popular for families with kids. Children eat at a discounted price, and kids three and younger eat free.
Buffet at Luxor
The Buffet at Luxor has some of the best reviews for a buffet in Las Vegas. Known for their massive 30-ft salad bar, this is buffet dining at its best. Bring your appetite and come prepared to feast on culinary specialties from around the world, along with a slice or two from the homemade pizza station, omelet station, carving station, and more.
The Buffet at Luxor is open for breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch. There’s also all you can drink draft beer, house wine, and margaritas for an additional charge – but there is a two-hour time limit (you don’t want to be so tipsy that you call it a day after brunch!). We also like that this buffet does not require reservations and doesn’t typically have long waits. Children under the age of 4 also eat for free.
The Excalibur Buffet offers a fun, casual environment to enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch, or brunch. Their weekend brunch is a Las Vegas favorite, especially among those who are just looking to kick back and enjoy some great food after spending a long night with Sin City.
All of the usual suspects can be found on the Excalibur Buffet, including meat dishes like rotisserie chicken, smoked brisket, and beef birria. There are also dishes with an international flair, including some Latin dishes that are full of personality. Make sure you check out the dessert station to see what type of sweet treats are waiting for you.
Currently, the Excalibur Buffet is open Mondays, then Thursday – Sunday, with buffet hours running until 3pm.
Garden Buffet at South Point
The Garden Buffet at South Point Casino offers great food at a great price. They’re open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner most days, with a weekend brunch being offered on Saturday and Sunday. If you love all things that come from the sea, make sure to plan a visit on Friday evenings for Seafood Night (there’s also a prime rib dinner for the true carnivores in your group).
The chef designs each menu, and all the dishes are prepared fresh. The Garden Buffet is the spot to eat at South Point Casino Las Vegas, whether you’re looking forward to a champagne brunch or to digging into the slow-roasted prime rib.
Off-Strip & Downtown Vegas Buffets
Not everything that happens in Vegas happens on the Las Vegas Strip, including a little buffet action. If your appetite is growing, check out these off-Strip buffets.
Fresh Buffet at Westgate
Fresh Buffet at Westgate is a good, solid buffet that isn’t over the top fancy but also never seems to disappoint. What people love about this Las Vegas buffet is the variety of international flavors, and there seems to be something, no matter what type of mood you’re in. There’s a nice selection of salads and side dishes that are unique to Fresh Buffet, and there are nice touches, like eggs benedict being brought out on nicely warmed plates.
The Fresh Buffet at Westgate has limited hours, ending at 2pm everyday. The Fresh Buffet is also one of the more economical options, plus kids between the ages of 4-12 eat for half price.
Garden Court Buffet at Main Street Station
If you’re in downtown Las Vegas and looking for some solidly good eats at a reasonable price, the Garden Court Buffet is your destination. They’re open daily for breakfast and lunch, and everything they offer is on point. There aren’t any elaborate gourmet dishes at the Garden Court Buffet, but considering the quality and taste of every dish, we promise that you’re not missing anything.
You’ll find most of your favorite buffet foods on this spread. For breakfast, there are all sorts of meats, perfectly cooked eggs, fluffy pancakes and waffles, and crispy hashbrowns. The Sausage biscuits and gravy are better than what you’ll find on many Las Vegas Buffets.
Keep in mind that because of the price point, you are missing some main buffet attractions, like a nice prime rib roast at the carving station, but there’s plenty to make up for it, and it’s economical.
