Above average for a buffet and very inexpensive

Buffets are not haute cuisine. They are comfort food, lots of it, with rich deserts. Kind of like being on a cruise ship! This is one of the better buffets that we have visited, and the food was above average, good service (drink refills, table bussing). At $6 for breakfast, or $10 for dinner... read more

Really disappointed in what use to be a good standard for las Vegas buffets. Its day has come and gone, yes the price was fair, great layout, but poor food, pass this one by and try somewhere else.

We ate a breakfast and dinner here a couple of days. Breakfast was OK - average fare for this type of place. Nothing special. There were lots of open tables, but they sure kept you waiting to be seated, which didn't make sense, except the servers were slow and seemed overwhelmed, so that may be why they didn't seat all...

Ate at the Firelight Buffet May 11, 2015. Was less than $12.00 with Players card. The beef practically melted in your mouth. There was a huge variety of food to choose from & the deserts were to die for ! This was the last of several buffets we attended this week that were Much more pricey. We'll definitely be back...

The buffet price is reasonable and the offerings are varied. The food was hot and plentiful with very good options, even a large variety of desert.

Went to the buffet twice and had a nice selection for both breakfast and lunch! Staff was nice and very attentive. You can't beat the price of the breakfast buffet, beats out McDonald's if you have the appetite!

I have been here about 5 times. The price is great and the food is awesome ~ so fresh with so many choices. The wait staff are very friendly...not just in the restaurant, but everywhere. This is my favorite buffet in Las Vegas.

Selection was limited at breakfast with very little fruit or yogurt. Omelet station was busy and good. Table service was slow at times, but adequate over all.

I guess it was just another Local's Casino buffet with a nice waitress and good onion rings (something you don't find on most other buffets). They also had a nice Triple layer Chocolate mouse cake.

Not being a buffet lover, this one deserves a good rating nonetheless. We come here every trip for a change from The Strip. Had lunch this time and waitress was very attentive. Atmosphere is quiet like the whole property is. Felt the price beat most Vegas buffets for value. Being a discriminative eater, I still found enough choices to fit... More
