    I enjoyed it. We ate there on a bogo comp from my Wife's Mlife rewards. I think reg. price is twenty something and some change.

    The buffet is not that large compared to others but it had the staples: prime rib, crab legs, Asian dishes, Italian dishes, the usual. All the offerings were quite good.

    The ambiance in the restaurant is nice and relaxed, dim lighting, and relatively quiet. The service was o.k., the usual understaffed waiters/waitresses running around and forgetting to re-fill your drinks until you flag them down for the 3rd time.

    Is it worth the money? Well, we must remember that the $3.99 buffets on the Strip are long gone. I would say yes, even without the bogo. With the bogo it's a great deal.

    At lunch it is an OK value, dinner is overpriced. There is little difference between lunch and dinner, but it is $11 more.

    They bump up the dinner price because alcohol was included. Bud Light or some cheap wine you have to get yourself. I would rather have a lower price and the option to buy the drinks you want.

    The food was OK, but nothing was really memorable. Lots of buffet standards.

    IMHO, it isn't a destination buffet, just a place to feed gamblers and conventioneers in volume. If you're at MB and want a buffet, it's handy, otherwise...

    It is my Fav Vegas Buffet. I haven't been to Wicked Spoon or Caesars new buffet however. The staff is always nice. They have the pasta station which is nice. Prime Rib is some of the best I e had at a buffet. They will even grill it off for you. Only draw back is you have to get your own Bud Light but it's not that big of a deal. Beats waiting for your server for another beer.
