We came to the Garden Court Buffet back in October 2019 and we came specifically on a night when they had their oxtail. It was a Monday evening and we were staying on the strip. We had one of those 24 hour bus passes for...The Deuce and typically grabbed the SDX which is their express bus and used it get to Downtown followed by a short walk to the Main Street Station Hotel Casino. I will have to say that the rest of the buffet was not that great nor was I really interested in anything other than the oxtail. When we were there it was located at the far end of the serving area and sometimes a line wraps along the walls for the oxtail. Where we were seated I had a perfect view of the line or when they replenished the oxtail supply. I cook oxtail at home and can say that Garden Court Buffet does a superb job. Now it may not be the preparation style everyone likes but this is one of the ways I do like it. Myself, I had 3 full plates of the oxtail and knew I got my money's worth. The staff here is excellent plus I like it that soda/milk/tea/coffee is included in the buffet price. I look forward to returning for oxtail when they reopen and it is safe to go.More

We thought we would try a little buffet at an older casino. Glad we did. The food is good and our waitress was extremely nice and accomodating for us. It is a bit of a walk from the Freemont Street Experience, but it was worth...the walk.More

I've been here on many previous visits to Las Vegas and it has always been a very good experience and an excellent value, until this trip. The food was not of the same quality as it was in the past. It was still a good...value but not as noteworthy as it once was.More

So you have been to buffet before and for the Main Street Garden Court Buffet is no different than all the others. We were there for the Friday night seafood Buffet. The main event for most is the crab legs. Served hot all you can...eat. But the batch I had were small, Skinny, not much meat. Service was spotty at best, not enough workers so don't expect spot on service. The dessert options were quite limited as they only out out small plates of cake etc.. If you have a coupon, its probably worth a try. Normal admission is $28.00. You get a dollar off if you are a Sam's member. For the money I think there are better options out there.More

The buffet at Main Street used to be one of the best. People would pay the little bit extra to go there even though their meal coupons would fully cover some other buffet. I used to run into pit bosses from the old Las Vegas...Club there who could have dined for free at their own properties but chose to pay to eat there. Then typically the management of Boyd Group began to drop the quality and variety of the offerings, living off the reputation they had earned in the past. Now it is just an average buffet slightly overpriced for the quality of what you get.More

Whether you just want fruits and hot cereal, chef made eggs to order, or chinese, mexican food, the Garden Buffet offers this to you. The hostesses are gracious and the wait crew courteous.

My wife and I dined here for Champagne Brunch. Great omelet station. They really need to change this buffet up a bit. Same food every weekend. Main Street Station does not only cater to tourists, many "locals" visit as well. Switch around the choices. The...food and service was very good on this visit. Surprise me with a few new food options on my next visit. I will return. Photos added.More

I received a free buffet coupon for here & decided to stop by. I was pleasantly surprised by the nostalgic decor & setting. In my continuous search for places like this and for finding hidden gems, I had to comment & add Main Street Casino's...Garden Court Buffet to my list. The food was hot, fresh and had a good variety of Asian, American and Italian dishes. I started with a nice small bowl of Cioppino and thought it a nice touch to the line up. The Lunch buffet is only $11.99, less with a players card. I also had some nice various mixed veggies like squash, green beans and broccoli, to go with some Mahi Mahi to go along with a pork chop. There were also some bbq pork ribs there too, so I added some to my plate. The Kalua pork was good as well as some other Hawaiian favorites like stew and Manapua. So overall lots of good selections to choose from and their desserts weren't too bad either. If you are in or near Downtown Freemont Street, LV. Then stop in for a nice meal in a nice relaxed and quaint atmosphere. Cheers and thanks for your support.More

The champagne brunch at the Main Street Station's Garden Court Buffet has to be one of the best deals in Las Vegas. The service is first-class and the value is, too. There is a wide selection of delicious food and the champagne just keeps flowing...until you decline another serving. Even when we have stayed on the Strip, a visit to the Main Street Station has been worthwhile. Staying on noisy Fremont Street means it's just a few minutes' stroll away. Various ethnic dishes, such as delicious shoyo chicken are available.More
