Vegas is synonymous with many things such as glitzy shows, rowdy bachelor parties, and arguably the best casino gambling in the world. Intertwined with all those, however, is the all-you-can-eat, gourmet food that accompanies it.

With their endless (and bottomless) options crisscrossing countless culinary styles, Las Vegas casino buffets have taken on notoriety and a cult following of their own. It’s now to the point where it can be overwhelming trying to decide just which of many options you want to enjoy endless crab legs, in-house smoked meats, and build-your-own Bloody Marys.

Our Las Vegas casino buffet guide will help you navigate the seemingly limitless amount of places where you can enjoy an actual limitless amount of food and drink.

The Buffet at Bellagio

It’s also particularly renowned for its seafood, widely regarded as some of the best in Vegas, buffet or otherwise.

Reservations are required and the experience is offered daily from 4:00 PM-10:00 PM.
