    Now I know there are tons of threads on this, but I can not stand seafood. Period. I will not be able to indulge in a buffet after the end of October. I want to get the best that I can before then.

    Without seafood being a factor, which buffet reigns supreme?

    You will get many opinions on this one...lol. Everyone seems to have their favorites. Caesars is considered to be one of the best along with Wynn.

    I don't eat seafood (I know, blasphemous) but I really enjoyed Bacchanal (Caesars) over Wicked Spoon (Cosmo).

    There isn't a best place, only one's favorite.

    1. I'd suggest only go to buffet for breakfast or lunch, go go at 10ish when you get breakfast items and some lunch items. Dinner costs more but anything more imo. One buffet a day is more than enough, at least for me.
    2. Bucchanal (Caesars) is most expensive ($55-60) and has the varieties. But it's pricy, long line, and most important of all I don't like the food. The only thing I like is their fresh made crepe.
    3. Aria is my favorite breakfast/lunch buffet. They have what I like, which are the BBQ ribs, pork belly, variety of salads and fruits, croissant, and my favorite coffee, Douwe Egbert commercial grade.

    Sterling Bunch (Bally's) is OK. Don't go if you don't eat seafood. It's not worth the $110-115 ($90 + tip).

    I concur with Caesars being up there. Even without seafood it has a lot to offer for your money. Come very hungry. You won't be disappointed.

    Ceasars (Bachanal) Bellagio ( the buffet at Bellagio) Cosmos (wicked spoon) Planet Hollywood (spice market), Wynn ( the Buffet), Mirage (Cravings) and Rio (Carnival World) would be my ranking.

    Wynn, Spice Market @ PH, then Bellagio Buffet for me. In that order.

    Caesars was great, but I couldn't get over the price after seeing the mountains of shellfish and realizing that was what I was paying for even though I had no desire to eat any of it.

    Everything else was great and of high quality, but I no longer feel like subsidizing other people gorging themselves on shellfish so I can eat non-shellfish food that's only slightly higher quality than Spice Market Buffet.

    Not to mention the ridiculous line, even with the reservation system.

    Edit: To add a bit more constructive content..I'd go with Wynn if you want high end and don't place a priority on seafood. If you want good quality at a reasonable price then PH's Spice Market. I haven't tried Wicked Spoon yet.

    To each their own of course, I think Spice Market is a good buffet but nowhere near the high end ones like Bachannal or Wicked Spoon, even taking seafood out of the equation.

    I agree Caesars is better quality, but I don't think it's an additional $21/pp better, along with the crazy lines and crowded seating area (at least where we were seated). But I can't speak for Wicked Spoon yet, which is just a few bucks more than PH.

    wicked spoon fell off and is garbage now. I went recently, have been there many times since the cosmo opened and I will never go back there again. i had $500 food/resort credit so technically my buffet was "free" but i will never go back again. free or not. i feed my dog better quality meat and food than the rubber that was served there.

    I really enjoyed wicked spoon both times I've been there. Also liked planet Hollywood but my go to buffet that I do every trip is the m, I know it's not on the strip but worth the trip.

    Wynn is the best one I've been to, not the largest but everything was really good quality. Bachannal was really good but I haven't been there in about 18 months or so.
