    Sterling Brunch is hard to get reservations. You need to book pretty far out. Its also around $95/pp.

    I looked 3 days ago and it was booked solid in May. Checked again 2 days ago and I got 1:30. Checked yesterday and updated to 11:30. Not the easiest, but check every few hours and you should be able to snag a spot. Reminded me of getting Fast Passes at Disney.

    the booking website sucks, it will tell you sold out for months when it really is not...if you are diamond or 7* you should have no issues...Ive never made a reservation on busy holidays and never turned away with a diamond card

    Doesn't the Rio seafood buffet also include a lobster tail?

    All-you-can-eat lobster? What do you expect to pay?
    Michael Mina's restaurant charges $75 for a (read that one) lobster.

    Not sure how much lobster you're looking for but at the Rio Seafood buffet they have it on there. I'm sure someone can/will talk about the difference in Rio vs other buffets..:whistle:

    Did the OP ask for all you can eat lobster, or just a buffet at which you can also get a (singular) lobster?

    Because yeah, those are two very different things.

    As far as I know the Sterling Brunch is the only one where you can get multiple tails at one price.

    I know nothing about Lobster, let alone on a buffet or cost. I just know the GF said she wants a buffet with Lobster, weather all you can eat or not I guess is no big deal if she can get at least one tail.

    Question about Sterling brunch, could I use the Diamond Celebration credit there? Thinking to try it on my next solo trip. Thanks :)

    Your best bet is probably the Seafood Buffet at Rio.

    Rio has it for a $20 upgrade to the buffet, but I can't recall if it's real lobstah(maine) or the other stuff.

    if she gets tail, i hope you do too.

    Unfortunately, Lobster and Buffet don't usually go well together. I think Rio and Sterling may be your only options there. Personally, I would look at some other options for Lobster. Most steak houses will have a tail option. If she hasn't had one, a lobster roll from Lobster Me or Luke's is a fun lobster treat.

    South Point's Lobster Grilled Cheese ($27) at the Big Sur Oyster Bar is a decadently delicious upgrade of an old favorite.

    I understand that your girlfriend wants a lobster buffet and you might want to do that just to make her happy. But unless your girlfriend has a hollow leg, I am not sure how many lobsters she can consume so that a buffet beats simply ordering a single large lobster in a sit down restaurant.
