They have anything you want with the best quality and unlike desserts I've had elsewhere, these don't look good they also tease great. I generally have trouble deciding which to have.

Busy and had to wait even though it was a Monday at 11:45. A good assortment but not as many choices as I had expected.

If a buffet is done right they will come. If it's managed poorly the operating expenses quickly spiral out of control. This buffet is the former. I bring large groups of 6-15 here several times a year and not once have I had anyone complain. How they manage such a wide variety with across the board consistent quality and above... More

Went to a buffet at the mgm in Vegas years ago disappointed. This buffet was great. We had lunch there and the section was great. Breakfast items, dinner items, sandwiches, a really wide selection of food. And the dessert was worth the price of the meal alone.
