    Hi,

    Seeing Shania on Friday Dec 14th, thought we would visit the buffet before the show. How long a line will we likely face if we show up around 5:30?

    Thanks

    Keep in mind that Shania is a 7.30 showtime

    You will have to go earlier it takes a while to get in bad then a while to get food.
    The way the buffet set up there are numerous bottlenecks a service stations.
    They have great food but really need to adjust the serving stations. I recently dined there and sent a letter to them they say they are working on it but if there is any crowd it takes a long time.

    I'm wondering what the wait time is for breakfast during the middle of the week. Around 9am.

    when a buffet has to post a wait time - like it was Disney - then its never going to be a good use of my Vegas time.

    I don't mind a wait for a table - but to stand in line for 30, 40 minutes - its not happening on my vacation!

    I went last month. Arrived at 5:30, it was about an hour before we were seated. We probably should have gotten the line pass in hindsight.

    I agree, there ain't no meal out there worth a 30 min wait.

    I went for lunch on Friday, November 9 a little before noon. To my surprise there was almost no line. There were about 5 people waiting to pay. There was a line of people waiting to get seated, so they were not letting anyone pay. I waited about 10 minutes for them to start checking people in again. It took maybe two minutes to get checked in, then I had to wait about 10 minutes to get seated. By the time I got checked in, a pretty good line had formed behind me. It seemed like there were not enough hostesses and they were a little unorganized getting people seated. There seemed to be plenty of tables available and the lines to get food were not bad.

    I was there around 7 pm Tuesday on what was a relatively slow night in Vegas and the line looked to be at least on hour long.

    I was there Thanksgiving weekend. I went on Friday night and made mistake of going a little before 7pm. It would have taken me at least 3 hours in the regular line. After thinking it over, I went to the "express line" for $20 and (I timed it) it took me 40 min just to get to the cashier and another 35 min before I was finally seated. I only waited it out because I had a $50 credit for the buffet and the extra $20 was taken care of by comp points. Also, I needed to kill some time because I was losing. :grrr:

    I went back for breakfast on Monday at 9am and there was no line at all--I went right up to the cashier and was seated right away.

    We were there in September, shortly after they opened. We went around 7pm on a Monday and were at the very end of the line. Someone came out and said the line from where we were would be around 2-1/2 hrs. We decided to wait a while to see how it moved. We were in a little under an hour. But like someone said, the wait time at some of the serving stations can be long. I probably waited 15 minutes to get king crabs because people were picking out the crabs they wanted, then the cooks would heat each order individually. They could save lots of time if they just heated all the crabs, and then put them out, instead of putting them out cold.

    My group was just there this past Saturday, at around 4:15 pm. I could not believe it, but THERE WAS NO LINE!!!

    Even when we left, there was a little line, but not as bad as I would imagine. I guess all the stories about the long lines must have scared other people off, as we did not wait long at all.

    Because it was a weekend, I think the price was almost $50.00 per person; but our group thought it was certainly well worth it.

    As for the crap legs, they seem to have had some already heated so when you get there the lady only asked for an empty plate and then she scooped some out of the pots and placed them in the plate.

    The oysters were still awesome, I would say.

    I know at $50.00 per person on a weekend, that may be pricey, but we still really enjoyed our food and hope to go back again really soon.

    Bacchanal Buffet Lines

    How are the line ups on weekdays? We are planning on hitting it around 8pm on Tuesday, but really don't feel like waiting an hour to get in. Are the lineups mainly stupid on weekends or is it a constant thing?

    We waited over 2 hours. Getting 2 drinks (milk and a Coke) took awhile inside as well. That was the only time I will ever go, I wasn't impressed.

    I see you can make a reservation there - does that help? Do they get you right in if you show up for a reservation time?

    Staying at CP in a few days and hoping to try this place if it doesn't kill all the time we have there.

    Bacchanal buffet lines midweek

    Hi,

    I would really like to visit Baccanal but I'm not willing to waste more than 15 min of precious sin city time waiting.
    I'm on east coast time so a 4 in the aft dinner is fine with me.
    Would there still be crazy lines at this place midweek in April at 4?
    Thanks

    I was staying at Caesars yesterday, so ate breakfast at Bacchanal. I seen long lines. I don't know how long it takes to get through the line. I am diamond so I was seated fast. There was lots of empty tables so I don't understand the long lines. I was a little disapointed in the buffet. I have been there since they first opened. The quality seems to be going down as the price goes up. The Hollandaise sauce on the Eggs Benedicts was not edible. It was so sour and had a foul taste. The cute little lox and cream cheese rolls have be replaced with salmon scrapes and gross looking cream cheese in a bowl with a giant oversized spoon. Most of the food looked like it had been sitting out for a long time. I wonder why they think they need 30-40 red velvet pancakes sitting out getting cold. Reminds me of why I don't eat breakfast at Spice Market Buffet. I like my food fresh and hot. I still cant figure out why the Mexican station never has any Mexican food. Only salsa. You you like yogurt and fruit, this is the buffet for you. A hour after we ate my husband was looking for a place to eat. He did not like anything that he had on his plate.
