The price was average for a buffet--around $12. Drinks were included, so that was good. The food was fine...nothing to write home about, nothing to really complain about. My son stocked up on desserts--something I hadn't seen him do before. They did look great. But their appeal was in the appearance--they weren't very tasty. The selection was okay. Breakfast, chinese,... More

Ate here every morning - had the buffet one morning and it was good. The menu has a nice selection of items and service was always very good.

Other than a line to be seated, because you pay before you are seated, i had no complaints. The range of food choices was excellent. There is a carving station and omelets are made fresh . They have a wonderful pastry chef and one cannot go away hungry. Too bad it is only open on weekends.

There is almost too much of a selection. Everything was very good and it was very clean and inviting.

Not only was the quality of the food mediocre, but the staff were rude. Our experience started bad and stayed that way. My husband and I visited the Courtyard Buffet on January 9th. We presented our signed and valid Visa card for payment, but when I handed the card to the cashier, she demanded to see my ID. I refused... More

This buffet used to charge much less. These days it is getting more expensive. The only reason we go there is the cook to order noodles. The chef work efficiently and serves good noodles. However, the rest of the food is so-so. I would say it is not worth the price at all. I might consider going somewhere else in... More

It was only $10 for adults, and there was a decent selection of food, although the quality was pretty average, but better than other casino buffets I've been to. One thing in particular that did get me excited was churros! I'd definitely say check it out for yourself.

Quite as big choice for breakfast and fortunately enough so as to be able to choose a small breakfast.

Looking for a nice buffet, then do not miss this one. There is a lot of selection. Take your time, and look at all the selections first. Eat as much as you want. The food is yummi.

We went here for dinner. We just moved here and wanted to start trying the different buffets, so we started at the north end of the strip with Circus Circus. The selection on the buffet was limited. Not much in the way of salad ingredients at all. Unfortunately, none of the food was warm that was supposed to be warm.... More
