    Of course, you will get wide ranging opinions. We find it to be very middle of the road, but not bad for the price.

    When different magazines, newspapers and websites do surveys of buffets in Las Vegas they usually get a pretty good score/ranking.

    Both my wife and I like it. I find that it has a pretty good overall selection and variety of choices. It can be pretty busy at dinner time, especially on the weekends.

    I will add that this is almost always our choice for Thanksgiving dinner as they do make very solid "American" food. My hubs loves the stuffing.

    I would rate it as FAIR, breakfast is poor.

    If they opened this 15 years ago it would have been the best buffet in town.
    Or if they had it in your town in would be considered fancy.
    But it is in the bottom half of the top ten in Vegas.

    I like it. Pretty good variety.

    Also, there's a fire grill behind the meat station, so if your Prime Rib is a bit too bloody, like it always with with me, tell the cook to put it on the grill for 2minutes each side. Perfect.

    I like it overall but I personally think their Breakfast is the best of the 3 meals...

    Exactly. It's really good, just not the best in town. But I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there, like I would for Wynn, Bellagio, or Wicked Spoon.

    We think it is pretty darn good for what it is. They do not try to be a fancy gourmet place....just standard, well prepared food. We've found ho crab legs put out in the last 1 hour of the lunch time....before dinner begins. I personally LOVE their bread pudding and vanilla sauce. You can also take some packaged cotton candy with you! :)

    I totally agree. It is not a bad value for the money. I also enjoy breakfast better than lunch or dinner. It is worth a try.

    because the picky eaters i know are also the most anti-buffet. they always want to eat at good restaurants. why would a picky eater want to go to a buffet where food is lower quality then good restaurants and is mass produced and sits out in trays under lamps and picked at by lots of people. just sounds funny hearing picky eater and buffet in the same sentence. :rolleyes2:

    I am with those who rank it as FAIR.

    I saw another poster mention the Thanksgiving meal and I agree - they did it pretty well when I was there for turkey day a couple years ago.

    I have not eaten breakfast there but then again, it is pretty damn hard to screw up breakfast.

    A major disappointment for me was Harrahs going from steamed crab legs to cold crab legs.

    I think you are misunderstanding the term "picky eater"... the most notorious picky eaters are children and they surely don't have much interest in good restraunts. Generally "picky" refers to types of foods (of which buffets have many), not the quality.
