This buffet was OK. People moved in and out quickly, so we didn’t have to wait long. Maybe that should have been a hint. The food was edible but certainly not up to par with a typical buffet. The food wasn’t fresh and while there was a lot of variety, there wasn’t much of any one thing available. Many of... More

We went on a Friday night. The line was long at 6:45 but the food turnover was quick. We had hot crab legs, shrimp, and oysters which were all good. I had my heart set on creme brule but the desserts were good too. Nothing was extremely WOW but I had a great meal and not an expensive price. We... More

We ate breakfast and the price is right! Very good food, good selection of breakfast items, and the omelet bar was very busy. Very friendly and attentive waitress. The buffet area is kept clean and food is replenished often.

Just wasn't impressed. Seems poorly stocked. Food wasn't fresh. Selection was just ok. The best part was the friendly service.

We were staying at Sam's and enjoyed a few dinners at the buffet. Make sure to sign up for one of the players cards to get a great discount. Food was reasonably fresh, hot and a great variety. Especially enjoyed the Asian and Mexican selections. A lot of the buffet changed nightly. Totally missed the dessert selection the first time... More

We were last here 8/2015. We enjoyed the attention to detail and the price. Stated at Sam's Town for 6 days and were frequent visitors to the buffet. It is fresh and constantly replenished. Not as large as other buffets but the price is great, there is frozen yogurt, ice-cream by the scoop, a very nice selection of desserts, including... More

We went on Friday night, which is Seafood night, the crab legs were wonderful, I like the idea that they plated them for you. I don't think I even looked at all the food, there was so much. The only thing I would have liked is to have the steak knives, crab tools available without having to wait for wait... More

Didn't know about this before visiting but once experiencing it my reaction was like wow. Tell all your friends & neighbors to check it while while visiting Vegas.
