    Hands down it is the Beau Rivage. We had it tonight and it was $23 and it was absolutely incredible. By far the best in Biloxi, and it would give most of the hotels in Vegas a serious run for their money.

    Was the line long? Last time I went I couldn't (well actually wouldn't) wait in line it looked like at leat an hour wait. However I do love The BR Steakhouse.

    Agreed! It's a Good Buffet! The trick is to anticipate when the crowds are going to go and get there earlier than everyone else.
    I also like The Terrace Cafe but the service was lacking the last time I was there in 2010. I figured it was due to the economy.
    The Beau is the only way I roll in Biloxi! It's been a few years so I guess I'm due to get my Beau on again!

    Trivia: Apparently Steve Wynn almost named Bellagio - The Beau Rivage.

    I got in line a few minutes before it opened at 4:00 PM and the line was about very short. Keep in mind this was a Monday.

    Yes The Beau buffet is the best in Biloxi. Yes the lines can be long. At 9:30 in the AM there was no line for breakfast, probably the best meal at the Beau. For dinner there were two lines and at 7;30 they were both long but moved really fast, 10 minute wait. The hold up is the hostess trying to seat people, rather than taking a lot of people with her she would do one small group at a time. She was the holdup as there was a lot of room. On a wed night the buffet was mediocre, shrimp overcooked, small selection at the carvers station, ours wa scomped so can't complain but glad we didn't pay the cost in $$$$$.

    interesting. I've been to that buffet several times and never found it even remotely palatable. but I don't really like buffets anyway, so maybe that's why. one time I got 2 buffet passes in a promo bag for an event, so I walked up to the long line (yes, as others have said, the line is always extremely long. hell, even the invited guest line is usually packed) and handed the passes to a nice looking couple standing in line. thinking about it now I should have pulled them out of line and taken them through the Noir entrance also, so they didn't have to wait, but I was kind of in a hurry and didn't think about it then. but I'm sure they were still happy to save the $50 or so and I wasn't going to use them anyway.

    close, but actually, the Beau was originally slated to be named Bellagio. the Beau was under construction and he decided when Bellagio broke ground that the name was a better fit for the Vegas property with the Italian theme. so then he came up with the name Beau Rivage, which fits the beach theme better anyway.

    I'm with shifter and am not a fan of the Beau buffet. My favorite buffet in Biloxi is actually boomtown when they have Dungenous crab.. Between the crab and the milk shakes I'm in heaven! I literally will spend well over an hour just eating the crab. The major drawback there is the line though. It can get LONG.

    Krispy Kreme donuts on the buffet.
    All you can eat for $12.95 or whatever? Bargain!! lol
    This has always impressed me.

    I think it's a good buffet. Not huge, but there is plenty to choose from. The Cajun/creole selections are good.

    I am with shifter and mitkraft, I have eaten at the Beau a couple of times and I was not impressed. Not terrible but not great.

    We were just in Biloxi all last week for a little vacation. We sampled several buffets although we never made it to eat at the Beau Rivage. Next time!

    We ate at our hotel, the Grand Biloxi, several times when it was 1/2 price days (Monday/Tuesday). Nice, standard buffet and the shrimp were the biggest I've ever seen (and tasty). The first night we were there they had Snow Crab -- it was pretty standard but also tasty.

    We ate at Boomtown a few times because we had comps and discounts. Also pretty standard buffet but really nice for the price. We enjoyed it.

    We ate at Treasure Bay one night because they have Dungeness Crab every night (also snow crab). There wasn't a whole lot on their buffet other than the crab but the crab was absolutely delicious. I've never eaten so much crab, in fact. I'd like to go back right now ...

    Just be aware the rest of the buffet isn't much ... but the crab was delicious! So we pigged out on the crab. That's what we went for, anyway.
