Fair amount of selection. There is an omelet bar if you want something freshly prepared. The scrambled eggs are runny and undercooked. There is an ok sized fresh fruit selection. Far overpriced. Staff nice enough. Pretty setting. Wouldn't have paid extra for this. It came with our package.

A little pricey at $35.00 per person but excellent quality. And the only real option for a full breakfast on the property.

A very nice breakfast buffet with anything you might want for breakfast. They had food for both very American eaters to Asian food.

Many choices from make your own omelet to waffles. Great fresh fruit selection. Various meat choices and other choices from pancakes, bread puddings etc... Our kids love going through it and never left hungry, if anything they ended up skipping lunch

Okay the price is obscene but the omelets are actually really good as is the fresh fruit. Skip the breakfast potatos, they are uninspired and bland. Tons of food options. There is always a wait though so this is not a quick breakfast.

No posting of price for buffet, imagine our shock when a so so buffet cost us over $70. Scrambled eggs were awful, bacon bland, only good thing was the pineapple (but it should be) would never eat there again. Drive off resort for breakfast

Great place for breakfast. A large variety of fruits. The fruit was fresh and ripe. A large variety of breakfast breads and they were delicious. There was a large variety of meats to accompany your breakfast.

The buffet at the Big Island Breakfast is the best one I've ever been to, although it is pricey ($33). Our breakfasts were included in our vacation package thru Costco Travel.The selection of food is tremendous and excellent. There is no way you can go away from there hungry.

Vegas buffet food is just that, Vegas buffet food. Ever since the Big Island Breakfast was relocated to the Waters Edge, it became Vegas buffet food. Omelet bar is ok, but very very long wait if you don't arrive shortly after opening. Fruit is ok. And breakfast buffet items are marginal to ok depending on time of day. I would've... More

Unfortunately, this is the only restaurant open for breakfast. The buffet food was so-so and expensive. You can order ala cart, but it ends up being almost as expensive.
