    Anyone know if there is a list somewhere of what kinds of restaurants/buffets are having special menus/pricing for Christmas eve and Christmas day?

    Can anyone share their experience on traveling over the holiday?

    Thanks!

    I don't have a list source, but we go to Vegas quite a bit for Christmas. Most buffets have special items that they might not normally have and of course they jack up the price.

    Some, not all, of the sit down restaurants have a special menu on Christmas Day with limited choices and of course raised prices.

    Wynn has Christmas menus but I'm not sure when they post them. They also have the 12 cocktails of Christmas!

    Last year I almost went to the buffet at Wynn but the line was absurd.

    Not sure if you like Prime Rib like I do, but on every trip we have a nice dinner at the Prime Rib Loft at The Orleans. Best Prime Rib I've ever had.

    You do have to make a reservation a few hours in advance, otherwise, the wait is long. They only serve dinner and the prices are very reasonable.

    When you ask about "special" are you looking for deals/discounts? Because the opposite is what will happen: just about every buffet will jack their price up $5-25 due to a "holiday menu"

    Grab a copy of the American Casino Guide (ACG) and there is a coupon for a B1G1 free buffet at Silverton. On Christmas day they are going to have a Christmas day special selection buffet. It will be $25.99 + tx for two people with the coupon.

    Our first trip was over Xmas and New Year's, long time ago. Anyhow, we had big ideas about where we would eat our special Xmas meals (Xmas Eve is just as important to French Canadians as Xmas Day). We were staying at the Orleans. The line ups made us re-think our plan. We were OK at the coffee shop Xmas Eve. But, by Xmas morning the coffee shop and buffet were jammed with long lineups. The Prime Rib Loft had been booked up for quite a while but they offered to put us on a no show list, we didn't bother. We ended up at the Mexican restaurant at Orleans for Xmas Dinner. They were running a special which was a good price and we had the place to ourselves. The waiter and bartender were bored out their minds so they hung out with us while we ate. It was fun.

    My point is, consider zigging while everybody else is zagging. Look at other restaurants that people wouldn't consider Xmas-y enough. I think buffets would be insane that day. I'm sure locals hit the buffets hard that day too. I mean, why bother cooking when you've got a good option there?
