    Where are they served hot during their friday night seafood night or are they served places
    hot other nights of the week. Of course snow crabs hot would even be better. But we can settle for smaller ones as long as they are hot. I know the rio regular buffet refused to warm some up for us.
    Thanks for your help. I have a LVI coupon book and it would be great to find these and have it be a place that accepts Las Vegas advisor.

    I usually soak them in the warm butter and get refills of the butter often to keep it warm.

    Fremont has snow crab legs under the warmer. It is not the best way to cook em, but it is okay. Seafood nites are Tue/Fri. I think MSS does the same on their Friday Seafood night.

    On my last trip I tried the Harrah's buffet, and they had hot snow crab legs. People were clearing them out as fast as they could cook them. No time to let them sit and cool on ice.

    However, I think they go a little heavy on the MSG, so be aware if you are sensitive to that.

    Thanks for the help, I did read somewhere that the Palms had them every night hot, but I never eaten there and have no idea of the quality of the buffet there.

    anyone been there?

    Main Street Station on Friday nights includes hot crab legs in their buffet. I normally stay at MSS and try to include Friday nights on my trips for this very reason.

    Silverton serves them hot and cold. So does Planet Hollywood.
    The line is longer to get them hot.

    Very true. To me it seems the cold legs tend to be sweeter. Maybe the hot ones are dried up under the heat lamps?

    I bypass the hot leg lines and just dip the cold legs in the warm butter. Works for me.

    Gold Coast has them for the Friday seafood buffet. Whole and halved with drawn butter. They were cooked well and were always restocked. Also had raw oysters and clams, fried oysters and oysters rockefeller. It is $18 but you can get a 50% coupon from the kiosk after getting 10 points. Lost $10 but got my discount :p

    Harrah's Buffet has had them hot every trip and not just on Friday. PH has had both hot & cold. If you are Diamond the waiter will have them steamed and deliver to the table.
