    As resident buffetologist, the Sterling Brunch is something I've always wanted to do. From what I understand, the quality of food is unsurpassed when it comes to the Vegas buffet scene.
    However, as a non-drinker, I've yet to bring myself to pop for the $85 needed to satisfy one's taste buds and gluttonous cravings.
    Maybe someday. After all, it doesn't bother me much to drop a quick $100 at the BJ table. Perhaps that what I should do. Lay at $100 bet at a Ballys BJ table and if I win, the brunch is basically paid for.

    SB review

    Here is a copy of my review from TA:

    Because we usually come in & leave on a Sunday, we have never been to this brunch. Since we arrived on a Thursday, I made res ahead of time. Just for the record, husband does not like seafood.

    Well, $85 a person is alot of money for a buffet. But, it was worth every penny!!! I shouldn't admit this, but I had 3 lobster tails, plus lamb, smoked salmon, filet, truffle potatoes, lobster bisque and a few other things. Other than the lobster, I only had tiny portions of things to taste, so it's not as bad as it sounds (honest). Husband found many things to enjoy. Desserts were in small portions, so although I never tried any, well, OK, one bite of his, he could try a few different ones without feeling wasteful.- or is that waist-full! And it's true, the glass of wonderful champagne was never empty - thanks to our server Jason. He made sure to fill them as we left, so we could take it to the casino.
    I had posted a question about tipping, and got various replies. We'd decided we'd treat it like a restaurant, not a buffet. We thought 20% would be reasonable. In fact, we ended up tipping way more than that. Our glasses were never empty, and plates were removed immediately. Which says alot, since I go up many times for small portions, rather than loading my plate. It did help that we were close to the entrees!
    Besides the things I had, they had crabs legs, chilean sea bass, pasta dishes. The appetizers & desserts were in a separate room, so there really wasn't any crowding around the food. I did not have any caviar, since I don't like it. Just for info, the hot dishes are kept in covered sterling dishes, so nothing was cold.

    Someone asked about 2 rooms. I'm not sure, but we were seated in the steak house, not a side room.
    The food, champagne, & service were wonderful. We would recommend it, and would definitely go back again.
