When the weather is nice, nothing quite beats dining poolside in Las Vegas.
Oftentimes offering a more tropical, laid-back vibe, restaurants by the pool can be the perfect spot to kick back, relax, and enjoy a meal and/or drink(s).
As a commonly sought-out experience, I figured it would be helpful to create a guide to poolside dining in Las Vegas.
Note that the menu items and prices referenced below can (and do!) change frequently. I’ll be sure to keep this post updated, but would also recommend double-checking the menu, which I’ll link out to, before making the trip!
Additionally, many poolside dining options are only open during pool season (March – October). Ensure your preferred restaurant will be operational if you’re looking for a bite during the off-season.
Poolside Restaurants On The Strip
Overlook Grill at The Cosmopolitan: A brunch destination serving both breakfast and lunch classics, Overlook Grill offers a view of Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool.
Breakfast items at Overlook include eggs your way, an omelet, chilaquiles, and eggs benedict.
On the lunch side of the menu, you’ll find a gyro, shrimp tacos, buffalo chicken tenders, and a burger among other options.
Whether opting for breakfast or lunch, you can expect to pay around $25 for an entree.
Notably, Overlook Grill offers the opportunity to add bottomless mimosas, bloody marys, and rose to your experience for a nominal upcharge.
Border Grill at Mandalay Bay: Open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, Border Grill specializes in Mexican cuisine created by Chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken.
Most entrees on the menu land in the $25-$40 range and include ceviches, tacos, enchiladas, nachos, and quesadillas, among other options.
In addition to offering bottomless mimosas, bloodies, and micheladas, Border Grill also serves unlimited small plates for $44.99 during “Border Brunch”, which runs from 10 am – 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday – Pretty unique for a non-buffet restaurant!
Agave Bar & Grill at Resorts World: Specializing in “Coastal cuisine and cocktails”, Agave Bar & Grill at Resorts World allows you to dine with a view of one of the best pools in Las Vegas.
Entrees on the menu land in the $20-$30 range and include shrimp tacos, quesabirria, a chicken sandwich, a BLT, and a selection of burgers.
A selection of entrees, salads, and desserts are also available in addition to an abundance of cocktails, beers, wines, and non-alcoholic beverages.
Pool Cafe at Bellagio: An aptly named restaurant, Bellagio’s Pool Cafe & Bar is open daily for breakfast and lunch, serving a selection of sandwiches, burgers, wraps, tacos, fruit, small bites, and breakfast classics. You can expect to pay around $25 for most items, give or take.
Of course, the full gauntlet of cocktails are also available.
Nestled into Bellagio’s stunning Mediterranean-themed pool complex, you’ll feel as though you’re dining on the Italian coast.

Paradise Cafe at The Mirage: It’s tough to find a more laid-back atmosphere than poolside at The Mirage, surrounded by palm trees and the sounds of a waterfall in the background.
Breakfast is served through the mid-afternoon and the menu includes selections like an all-American breakfast, a 3 egg omelet, a breakfast burrito, pancakes, and French toast.
Notably, you’re able to add a short stack of pancakes to any meal for only $6.
Lunch items include a selection of salads, burgers, sandwiches, wraps, and even a foot-long hot dog.
Almost everything on the menu can be yours for a sub $20 price point – Not bad!
Keep in mind, The Mirage was recently purchased by Hard Rock International and will transition to that brand in the coming years. This may be your last chance to dine poolside at the iconic Mirage!
Cabana Grill at MGM Grand: Open daily through lunch, MGM Grand’s Cabana Grill serves a collection of lunch items that include appetizers, sandwiches, a hot dog, a burger, sushi, a quesadilla, salads, and flatbread pizzas.
Breakfast items like a breakfast burrito, a breakfast sandwich, and bagels are also offered.
Impressively, nearly everything on the menu lands at or below a price point of $20.
CAPRI & Spritz at The Venetian & Palazzo: Two poolside dining options offering an identical menu, CAPRI can be found on the Palazzo side of the complex, while Spritz is located on the Venetian side of things.
For those unfamiliar, Venetian & Palazzo’s pools are conjoined by a walkway, making it easy for guests of either hotel to move between the two.
Both restaurants serve a selection of breakfast and lunch fare at a $20-$30 price point.
Breakfast menu items include a breakfast burrito, an applewood smoked bacon egg & cheese sandwich, waffles, and more.
Highlights on the lunch menu include chicken tenders, a double burger, pizzas, tacos, salads, and desserts.
Uniquely, CAPRI and Spritz serve “Sharables” for groups of 4 – 6 people, the highlight of which (in my opinion) is a seafood tower constructed of lobster, shrimp, and crab.
Hopefully, I was able to help you find a poolside restaurant on the Strip that works for you and your group!
Fortunately, there are poolside dining options that span the spectrum from fast-casual to more formal, meaning there’s something for everyone.
Whether you’re on the hunt for a quick bite, sit-down meal, or cocktails, I’m hoping you have a relaxing experience!
One thing’s for sure: There are worse ways to spend a day than eating, drinking, and lounging next to the pool.
