    Look up "meh" in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of it.

    It's not Bellagio or Cosmo but its the best on the far South end, better off making a trip down to Verandah at 4 Seasons cost is about the same but sooooo much better. Verandah has buffet on weekends only but have a great breakfast daily.

    I had the dinner buffet in August and I thought it was one of the better buffets I've had (below Rio/Bellagio but above MGM/Paris...haven't had Wicked Spoon yet). Used a myvegas comp so the price was definitely right.

    They had good seafood and comp beer/wine/champaign. It exceeded my expectations anyway.

    Isn't the selection quite small?

    I thought it was okay, but he selection was small compared to other places. The "Meh" comment was spot on.

    I thought the selection was pretty decent, but otherwise, yeah. I'd probably give it a little bit more than just "meh", but I definitely would not travel to it from other parts of the Strip like I would for Bacchanal or Wynn. However, it's a perfectly cromulent buffet if you're at Mandalay, Luxor, or Excalibur.

    This is my impression as well. Its been almost two years since I last ate here, but it was very boring. The food was average the selection was small. Too many other good places to eat in and around MB to waste time stopping here. if you like buffets, the MGM Grand is not too far away from MB and is much better

    Better than Luxor. But I would venture that for the same cost as the MB buffet, you could eat at Mizuya, Burger Bar, Slice, Tacos & Tequila. All of those are better options for the same cost (I think).

    I happen to really like the Bayside buffet. It's the kind of food I eat-not fancy but well prepared and their desserts are better than most buffets on the strip. The last time we were there (Oct.), they had pumpkin soup that was so good that I asked for (and received) the recipe. By comparison, I've lost interest in the Bellagio buffet and I'm not crazy about PH, Paris or Flamingo buffets.

    I like the Bayside buffet, I prefer it over MGM. Bellagio is better though, and I need to try wicked spoon soon!

    I agree 100%. I went there 3+ years ago & never returned. Very boring.

    Another point for this one. The food tastes edible. It's not delicious but it's not disgusting. I would not pay for it again. But I would eat it for free or discounted. The atmosphere is not too shabby.

    One of our Vegas 'musts' is the Bayside Buffet champagne brunch. Yes the selection is smaller than some of the other buffets, but the quality is better. Haven't been to the Sterling Brunch, etc., but this is a treat for us. There is a nice selection of well prepared food in a beautiful setting. Can't beat the poached eggs with some of their hollandaise sauce! And the shrimp is peeled! Hubby goes wild! Can't wait to go back!
