The service at the Mandalay Bay location is above and beyond. We came in for a very fun brunch experience--they make you feel very welcomed and appreciated right away. The service was incredible and food and drinks wonderful. Pricey but worth it, especially if you are willing to be adventurous with trying new foods you don't typically see at brunch.

We typically have lunch here while attending the MAGIC trade show each year. The food is pretty good, although, I swear I'm allergic to the corn taco shells. I need to remember not to get those, although the fish tacos were good and enjoyed by all others at the table as well. I also love that we get to sit... More

We were staying at Mandalay Bay for one night, for the last night of our multi National Park vacation. We came here for Saturday brunch before heading to the airport that afternoon. It wasn't until we were already sat down that we realized that they ONLY do the $40 "all you can eat" brunch, you can't order anything else. Gulp.... More

The turkey tostada is our favorite lunch at Mandalay Bay. It is a generous portion that could easily be shared by two. The house made chips and a cranberry margarita (special the day we visited) are a great start to a wonderful lunch. Eat outside to avoid the noise! Enjoy!

Sunday brunch was ridiculously pricey, below average food with flustered service. The chips and salsa were good. Disappointing.

Middle of the afternoon, we are wandering around Mandalay Bay, just gawking at all the restaurants and casinos. Fun. The sign for Border Grill caught our eye ans we thought - why not. We went in and sat at the bar. They had a special margarita that day (which was quite good, but not memorable). My husband went for the... More

Nice restaurent in the congres centre of Mandalay Bay. (ladies, it's a long walk on heels from the casino). Nice atmosphere good sevice, creative kitchen. I loved the Peruvian ceviche, but the crab and grapfruit ceviche was not so special. All in all it's a nice place to try for a change

I eat here at least once on each trip to Vegas and everyone at the table always agrees that the food, like the service, is consistently good. Great salsa, too. Prices are a bit high, but reasonable by Strip standards.

We have never been disappointed at the Border Grill! Good food and great service! We had both breakfast and lunch there during our trip.

Excellent service, mediocre food. From entry to exit, the service was unbeatable. The guacamole was great! The Yukatan Pork was an original flavor, but needs something with it. The fish tacos are bland and the fish is scarce in them. I think lunch here would be a better option than dinner.

Thank Jean L

Welcome to Border Grill, Las Vegas' destination restaurant overlooking the Lazy River just off Mandalay Beach, where Chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, Bravo's "Top Chef Masters" and Food Network's "Too Hot Tamales," want nothing more than to spice up your day. With two floors of patio dining, and a beautiful outdoor bar, it's the perfect setting for sipping margaritas and savoring the bold flavors of Mexico while enjoying views of the beach and pool. Border Grill Las Vegas is located in Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. There's so much to do at Mandalay Bay. The Shark Reef, right next door to the restaurant, features sharks of all kinds, as well as a slew of exotic, predatory marine life. Stop by for fish tacos after and have the last word in the food chain.
