I expected much more then I got. First of all it was way over priced. The variety of food was not there. Not one vegetable was on the American steam tables. Had to get some kind of vegetable on the Asian steam table. Was no table service. Just to pick a dirty dish. We ate at 5:30, and not to... More

Pretty basic buffet but it's also pretty cheap. Good if you have kids. Nothing to brag about so many buffets in Vegas!

We were all excited to try The Buffet. My husband's sister lives in Vegas and usually we go to the Santa Fe and have the buffet there, which never deceives. This buffet cost $28/person (Sunday) and we were expecting much more than what we got. There was no variety, the food did not taste very good. I personally love chicken... More

We went for breakfast and the "new" buffet is no better than the old. Check around for other $17.99 buffets near here. Also the new trend toward kiosk check-in for the buffet is not progress. Why doesn't Excalibur offer a discount here for guests?

Brand new spin on what used to be the worst buffet on the strip. Nice, big, clean, down to earth. Located in a very busy walkway of shops. Look for coupons which are everywhere. .

The worst place to have dinner! The food tastes old and the choices are so limited, even sallad bar. It took us about 30 minutes to be seeted, the staff did not bother to pick up empty plates for awhile. Orange juice is so deluted it barely tasted like juice. $24 per person is wasted, paid $104 for four people... More

This buffet is just average, nice and clean dining area since they have redone it but the buffet is still lacking American choices.I think it is overpriced for what it has to offer, we only go here because of resort credit, otherwise I would choose somewhere else for our money.

For those looking to hit the Vegas buffet scene, this is one you may want to avoid -- food was subpar for Vegas, barely meeting the expectations of an everyday buffet. Budget friendly? Sure -- taste/satisfaction leaves a lot to be desired for this buffet. Definitely recommend getting your grub fix at one of the many other buffet's in Vegas.
