Amazing buffet! There is something for everyone! Our favorites were the crab legs with butter, the made-to-order steaks, the deliciously moist carved meats (turkey and roast beef) with mashed potatoes and gravy (YUM!), and the dessert spread! The stir fry was a little too salty for me (too much teriyaki and soy sauce)...but overall, we felt we got our money's... More

The Waterfront buffet is great, especially if you love seafood. Crab legs, clams, shrimp, oysters. Yum. The overall buffet has something for everyone of every age. From Sushi, to fried chicken. Love it.

The food and service at the buffet was great and got lucky as the line was very short, only about a 5 minute wait. The waitress did a great job with drinks and napkins as needed and the view of the pool area was awesome. Be ware of cost as it is around $40 person which could be a little... More

We went on a Monday night, if we had not been comped 1 meal, it would have been a very expensive buffet. We were quite hungry when we went, and there were some definite stand outs, but it really lacked in vegetables (other then a small salad bar). The mac'n'cheese was really really good, the corn served by the crab... More

I recently went to their buffet which opened at 4:00pm. I arrived at 4:00pm and waited and waited and waited. When I asked what the hold up was, I was told the staff really doesn't come in until 4:30. Really? Then why open at 4? I was also treated very rudely but the cashier and tried to tell the manager...

We have been here a few times, once with a coupon. We don't gamble much, sometimes work in the area and this used to be a decent spot to eat. We only went there tonight because the Borgata buffet is closed on Wednesdays in the winter. Not sure if it is because of the winter season, but food quality has... More

If you have been to buffets in Las Vegas (for a LOT LESS money), then you will be disappointed in the variety and quality of food. I've never seen this advertised as a seafood buffet but they take too much space for seafood (which we don't eat). I assume that's why they charge you $39. Thank goodness we had a... More

We had to pay full price, no coupons so it was $86 for two of us without a tip. We waited about 20 minutes to pay and get a table around 4:45 on a Sunday. I was amazed at the people taking huge plates of crab legs...seemed a little greedy to me but I guess they figured they paid for... More
