    Hello, my first post so be gentle please, I have searched and am looking for current info as I leave Monday.

    Who do you feel has the best crab legs available at a buffet, and are they available for lunch, dinner or both, and does anyone offer king crab legs.

    Well every place steam/warm them if they are served cold?

    Thank you,
    WISCODAD

    i don't know if this place is the best, but it's the only place i have had them, and i thought they were yummy (so did a ton of other people as the buffet was packed and there was always a huge line by the crab legs). m resort had a really good buffet that had crab legs. they served them both cold and hot, your choice. oh and we were there on a sunday for brunch.

    We ate at the Mirage buffet last week and they had crab legs that were split and steamed without asking.

    I was at the Mirage for lunch on a Friday last month and warm split crab legs were available. Decent size.
    From my experience, Wynn and Bellagio have the biggest legs for a Vegas buffet. Wynn will broil them on request and Bellagio will boil them.
    I not sure if either place has king crab anymore. Wynn used to.

    When I was at Paris a few years they said they would only steam for diamond level and above....

    Bellagio has Alaskan King crab legs. Mirage, Aria, Planet Hollywood and Bellagio is my favorite. I am sure M life has crab legs during the week too because I was there during the week in July and had crab legs.

    Orleans, in my opinion, has the best snow crab legs. I can't speak for king crab as I'm not a huge fan.

    Orleans is the only place I know that has hot and cold, but the hot isn't drowned in water, thus making it near impossible to get the meat out of. Mandalay Bay used to have the same setup, but I'm unsure if they still do.

    King crab season starts next week, so I suspect that a few places will start offering them if they don't presently.

    I have to agree with that... They're snow crab, but for the price, its hard to beat.
    For KING crab, I'd say Wynn or Bellagio.

    Bring a pair of gloves because those king crab legs can be sharp! Are you on MyVegas? If so, maybe look into buying a reward for the dinner buffet if you have enough chips. It allows you to use the VIP line which was nice because when we went the line was very long.

    We were at Bellagio for lunch and dinner last week. They had both king crab legs and regular crab legs served cold. They are cut in 1/2, so are easy to remove from the shell. They have a steamer there if you like them hot - like I do. Enjoy!

    Paris buffet not only heats them but also has them pre-cut.
