    So where is the best seafood buffet? And not on the weekend. We fly into Vegas this Tues., and we'll be going to the canyon for the weekend. Then back to Vegas next Sunday.

    Fremont seafood nights are now only Tuesdays/Fridays. I would not consider it the best, but probably not bad for the price.

    I agree. Something like Wynn or Bellagio, while not seafood only, will likely give you better seafood than most other options.

    Las Vegas is not a seafood buffet destination. By the nature of how foods are prepped and held, every seafood buffet I've been in Vegas has over-cooked product. For something like a medium-rare prime rib roast or a pan of potatoes, no problem. For more delicate items like seafood - big problem.
    I don't see this problem ever going away either, unless buffets start to looking at seafood differently than other food items.
    Stick with the option espoused by a couple of previous posters - go high end buffet instead.
    Someone else mentioned Makino or Todai - though buffets, they are more sushi places than seafood buffets. In my book, there's a big difference between the two.

    I liked the buffet better at Planet Hollywood than the Wynn for seafood, you can get hot crab where as the Wynn you have to ask for them to heat it up. Guess it depends what type of seafood you are looking for.

    Gold Coast Ports O' Call buffet has a Friday night seafood buffet at $18. If you go to the kiosk and get a coupon there is a promotion for 50% off if you get 10 points (10 points=$10 play through their slot machines) which is a pretty awesome deal.

    The price of the seafood buffet has gone slightly up to about 20 dollars. It is not a great bargain and I would prefer the seafood at Makinos. If you are interested in the buffet only, my choice would be the buffet at MSS. It would be a good bargain using the 2-1 FSE coupon. The coupon cannot be used during Seafood nights at both hotels. The food is okay for me at both locations.

    The Rio has a seafood buffet that is supposedly really good. Also, Aria's buffet gives you a lobster tail (can order as many as you like) with your buffet.

    MGM Buffet was pretty good. It's the only buffet that I've been to in Vegas (first time here). It was resonably priced with what I thought was a good selection of foods, with a good amount of seafood. But again I don't have anything to compare it to. My mistake was the fried chicken, it was really good but fried foods don't agree with me and I paid the price.

    For the money Fremont is worth it for seafood night only
    As a local I have cut my fingers many times breaking crab
    trust me it ruins the appetite and the whole night really
    Thats my main reason for liking Fremont seafood buffet
    You just pull and eat simple stuff :nworthy:

    The Palms has hot & cold crab legs on their buffet every night and they are good. If you have a Palms players card you get a big discount. I think right now the dinner price with players card is $13.99 plus tax. They also have sushi and normal buffet things. The crab legs have a good taste to them. I'm a local who goes there every couple months.
