Buffets in Las Vegas have been a staple of the culinary landscape for decades, with many properties using them as a loss leader to draw the gambling public in.
Prior to the pandemic, buffets were numerous, with options existing at nearly every major resort in town.
Unfortunately, the “good old days” of plentiful buffet options are now over as many buffets were forced to close during the pandemic and subsequent capacity restrictions. While a handful have since reopened, many have been lost forever.
As many visitors still enjoy the concept of buffet dining, I thought it would be helpful to maintain a list of which buffets are open in Las Vegas. Hopefully, it grows as life continues to normalize.
Ensure you check out my linked buffet reviews for each offering, which will provide an in-depth look at the offering and my (sometimes strong) opinion.
Note: Buffet hours and pricing change frequently. I’ll do my best to keep this rundown updated, but will also link out to each buffet’s website so you can double-check hours of operation and price before making the trip!

Hopefully, I was able to help you identify a buffet open in Las Vegas that will fit your needs, budget, and your appetite. Although every buffet is unlikely to survive, I remain hopeful that a diverse number of options spanning the price/quality spectrum come back online to keep the tradition of buffets in Las Vegas alive.
I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
