Bargain breakfast

When we checked in to the Golden Nugget, we were given vouchers for a buy one/get one buffet. Our last morning there we decided to give it a try, and we were glad we did. Very good selection and the bacon was very crispy - something we find rare in buffet food.

We paid for a show deal with buffet for $40. Show was brilliant but buffet was average. Not a great variety of fish and vegetables.

I arrived in Vegas early on a Sunday morning and wanted a decent buffet, so I decided to pop in. I have been here about three years ago but stopped going downtown for awhile and read they cleaned FSE up a bit. What a disappointment. The best part of the buffet was the to-order over easy eggs and the coconut... More

The buffet at the Golden Nugget seems to have been designed for people who just want a large quantity of food without being concerned about the quality. I am not trying to stereotype, but this seems to be a favorite of senior citizens with limited mobility. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I have the feeling that they don't try so hard... More

I usually stay at the Golden Nugget and have the buffet, but this time I stayed at The Plaza........and still had the breakfast buffet at the GN. It has everything I like.....and don't like. Its always busy but the queue goes quickly and is worth the wait. too many things to list really.....go and see for yourself....yum!

We enjoyed the food and the service was wonderful. We would go back because we really enjoyed the food. You get the feel of old Hollywood. Deserts are plentiful and wonderful sweet treats. I love seafood. So there was plenty of shrimp

The food was not what I expected on a Vegas buffet. Needed more variety and salad items and nothing very special. No fresh fruit.

Great breakfast, excellent service every day. Had breakfast 2 of the 4 days we were in town. Our servers were amazing. The food was great and it held us until dinner. The entire staff were friendly and accommodating. Fast service, great omlets and excellent selection.

Beside the Fremont's buffet and Main Street Station's buffet, one of the best buffets in Downtown. Breakfast is good and which I had twice, plus lunch once, and the dinner buffet once as well.

Everything was good but the selection was very small compared to all the other buffets that I have been to. They lacked in cooked vegetables which was really disappointing. The brisket and mashed potatoes were extremely good. Their desserts were good.
