    Would like to try a new buffet next trip getting tired of the same places. Which would you recommend? I am looking for one that has warm crab legs and a not to long of a wait in line. Planning on a Sunday around 4:30. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    I favor Bellagio, but Wynn is very good.

    I've eaten both. I don't think you can go wrong with either. You're going on a weekend, so I think you'll have to deal with a line regardless, but it shouldn't be awful.

    Lately I've preferred Wynn over Bellagio, but I've not had a bad meal at either. Price is pretty comparable as well.

    Have a great trip!

    Easy choice. Wynn.

    Much nicer, IMO. Best buffet on the strip. I'd rank the top buffets:

    1.) Wynn
    2.) Wicked Spoon - Cosmo
    3.) Caesars
    4.) Bellagio

    All are amazing though. Bellagio is the most dated though and their dessert bar can't compare to the others.

    I would totally say to go to the Wicked Spoon. I went to the Bellagio and Wicked Spoon on my last trip (two weeks, love long trips). Bellagio was very disappointing. Everything was just 'ok', and didn't have a huge variety.

    I went to the Wynn champagne brunch on my first trip, and it was a lot closer to Wicked Spoon than Bellagio (i.e. very good). The sparkling wine served was low quality though.

    Hoping to check out Caesar's or maybe the new Aria buffet next trip.

    My ratings:
    1) Wicked Spoon (9/10)
    2) Wynn (8.5/10)
    3) Bellagio (7/10)

    In specific response to warm crab legs at either Wynn or Bellagio - one place (Wynn) grills them, while the other (Bellagio) boils them. There is a major difference in taste due to heating method.
    If Wynn still has the king crabs, I've found the quality to be favorable to what Bellagio offers.
    It's unlikely you'll have long crab lines at either places. That is more of a concern at lower-echelon buffets where diners load up on crab at the expense of the other stuff.
    As far as the other components of said buffets, it's somewhat of a toss-up, with a slight edge going to Wynn.

    Flip a coin.
    I'm not kidding.

    The Wynn dining room is prettier.
    Bellagio uses higher cost items. Chilean Sea Bass for example. Yum.
    Not that Wynn skimps on things.

    Both great bargains even at the prices they charge.
    Both fun. Both good.

    Those are the top two buffets in town IMO. I've been to both and eaten so much I thought I would split my sides.

    I prefer Wynn to Bellagio, but both are very nice. I think the ambiance and selection at Wynn just have the edge. Another one that I recently have falling love with, is Aria's buffet.

    This isn't even a contest.

    The Wynn buffet is the best, period.

    Bellagio is poorly run, poorly staffed, and the food has dropped in quality. Getting drink refills is a challenge. The lines are long both inside and out. The selection is unfavorable.

    Wynn every day.
