Loved it the 1st night we got there - everything was fantastic. Went there the next day for lunch and it tasted like last nights leftovers.

It's a buffet, nothing special. I've had better buffets, and I've had worse. We ate here a couple times because it was convenient and the price was good, but don't expect to be blown away. The desert bar was my favorite part, really good deserts and a soft serve machine that has interesting flavors besides chocolate and vanilla. Also, I... More

We are a family of 5 including 3 kids and going to a big vegas buffet at $30+ per person just isn't feasable for us. Thankfully Gold Coast has an affordable buffet. We thought the quality was very good. There was Italian, Chinese, Seafood, Mongolian, and Mexican food and American (BBQ) food. We went twice, once for lunch and once... More

Buffets in Vegas are very big and very expensive. If you are looking for an inexpensive restaurant, try this buffet. For around ten dollars, you can get a cup of soup, salad, tender roast beef, I suggest 2 or 3, corn on the cob, potato and a desert,with a soda and coffee. There are plenty of other minor entry's there,... More

If you truly want to enjoy a "Vegas Buffet", be willing to shell out a few extra bucks. We thought we'd get the experience and save a couple of bucks coming here, but we were disappointed. The food reminds me of school cafeteria on a good day. Definitely not worth it. I would not recommend this to my friends and... More

My partner and I ate three times at the Port O'Call Buffet in July 2014 - breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were staying at the nearby Rio All-Suite Hotel, and we just kept going back because the value of this buffet simply couldn't be beat! The food is nothing terribly special, but there is lots of selection and something for... More

This will never qualify as a "superbuffet" but it is reasonably priced, OK variety and quality. Has all the normal stations, salad, Italian, Mexican, BBQ, carving, American, Asian and dessert. I think it is acceptable for lunch but I do not think it works for dinner. Remember your slot card for the discount.

I was staying at the Gold Coast for a 3 night stay and chose the buffet for both a breakfast as well as a lunch on different days. You can simply not beat the price and value for Las Vegas. $5.99 breakfast, $7.99 Lunch and $9.99 for Prime Rib buffet. I would recommend any of them. Service is efficient. Beverage... More

We returned to this buffet knowing full well that you get what you pay for. I forgot that we had to wait for a server to bring us drinks (which included milk for our cereal), so that was pretty annoying. Just put a machine out there and give us small glasses if you're worried about waste! I also forgot that... More
