Sunday morning delights!

We like to go to Sunday Morning Brunches @ Toucan's. It is always clean, fresh, and has different things with distinct flavors. The seating is intimate so you can carry on a conversation, much better than Las Vegas Buffets! All ethnicities are represented, and of course the champagne is great!

The food is always fresh and flavorful. Love the seafood buffet on Fridays. Price is good for families. You won't leave hungry.

Among the items I liked were crab legs and smoked pork chops. The shrimp were very small and had tails on. The bacon wrapped filet was inedible. Desserts were not that exciting. The waitstaff was good at filling up water and ice tea but horrible at removing plates. I had to move our plates to another table several times.

I've been to a lot of Las Vegas buffets, but this one had much fresher food and was more low key. We did our last conference dinner at the buffet and were able to hang out for a long time with plenty of spare room around our table. Good selection and quality.

I cant say enough but the line to get in will - it is worth the wait. Prime rib, crab, mexican, mongolian grill....basically EVERYthing you could possibly want and the price was 20 bucks. No reason to ramble on - just go.

I have eaten at this buffet many times and I have to say dinner is the meal to go for. They do have a great selection, all the meats, seafood, etc and it never disspoints. Breakfast on the other hand is minimal and for $12.99 not worth it in my opinion. I have been to others that are much better... More

We LOVE this place. We eat here for every birthday, anniversary or other special occasion. The food is the best. So many excellent choices. The quality is fabulous with none of that casino-ey feeling

I know, I know, you have had the glum hotel buffet, but this one is different. It is actually good! Mexican, Asian, American, they have it all. I am a real foody and I was so impressed with the quality, taste and appearance of all of the food that I searched for the manager, Marcus Nichols, to tell him how... More
