The Buffet At Wynn Review – Take a Look Inside


Key Points:

  • Wynn easily qualifies as a top-tier buffet in Vegas alongside Wicked Spoon and Bacchanal – It’s that good.
  • Unlike lesser buffets, Wynn still serves premium items like prime rib and crab legs.
  • My personal favorite “hidden gem” items included the Thai chicken wings, California rolls, and dry-rubbed rotisserie chicken.

While fine dining isn’t my jam, mostly due to frugality, high-end buffets in Las Vegas are my weakness. Options like Wicked Spoon at Cosmopolitan, and Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace almost always earn a stop from me when visiting the Strip.

Unlike low or mid-tier buffets, gorging yourself to the point of discomfort to get your money’s worth isn’t necessary (although I frequently do it anyway). Instead, value at top-tier buffets is derived from being able to sample a wide variety of high-quality cuisine from across the culinary landscape.

Surprisingly, I had yet to experience The Buffet at Wynn until recently. Needless to say, I was excited to be turned loose.

Below, I’ll cover everything you need to know about the buffet from pricing, to how to make reservations. Of course, you’ll also gain an understanding of The Buffet at Wynn’s menu with plenty of pictures.

How to Make Reservations at Wynn’s Buffet

A popular buffet, reservations are highly encouraged and will allow for expedited seating. Reservations for Wynn’s buffet can be made here, where you will also be asked to pre-pay.

Wynn’s Buffet Menu

Wynn’s buffet has 16 live-action cooking stations that specialize in items like prime rib and other meats, made-to-order potato latkes, Asian-inspired dishes, traditional American fare like ribs and mac & cheese, pizza & pasta, and a mind-boggling dessert selection.

With over 90 items offered daily, you’re almost guaranteed to find something that tickles your fancy. Even Vegan and Vegetarian options are offered, and the staff is happy to tell you what fits into those categories.

Some of our favorite items (pictured below) offered at Wynn’s buffet were:

Snow Crab Legs: Served both warm and cold, Wynn’s crab legs featured impressive size and plenty of meat to be harvested. The cold crab legs were precut, making it easy to collect the meat from inside.

Thai Chicken Wings: Although messy to eat, I found these wings to be irresistible due to their unique flavor and spicy kick.

Prime Rib: You would be remiss to visit a Las Vegas buffet and skip the Prime Rib. Wynn’s was fantastic.

Dry Rubbed Rotisserie Chicken: Available at the live-action meat station, the rotisserie chicken was juicy and perfectly seasoned.

California and Shrimp Tempura Rolls: I discovered these cold, refreshing gems after I was already stuffed but couldn’t lay off ’em.

Desserts: Taste matched the visual appeal of the desserts at the Buffet. I personally had a brownie with molten fudge erupting from its center, creme brulee, and strawberry cheesecake. All fantastic.

While I could further articulate the menu with words, images do a better job of explaining the experience.

Is The Buffet at Wynn Worth It?

Yes. Wynn’s buffet was worth every penny, and I’ll certainly be back. If you plan to be in Wynn’s neighborhood, we would recommend snagging a reservation in advance as they go quickly. Everything from the crab legs to the wings and the prime rib was exceptional.

If I’m ranking the top 3 buffets in Las Vegas, I’d still put both Wicked Spoon and Bacchanal Buffet ahead of Wynn’s buffet in that order, although it’s close, and you can expect a great experience at all three.

The buffet is enormously overpriced and overhyped. I’m a crab leg expert, and they are “advertised” as KING crab, NOT snow crab. I even called ahead and was told they WERE king. They weren’t. They were only cold snow crab sitting in ice water (the WORST thing for seafood due to the absorption of water into the meat). Mad for the rest……YES there are tons of items, but nothing stood out for what one pays. Unless one is 250+ pounds and An healthy eater that gorges oneself, it’s not worth the after effects of 3000* calories most people will pack down. It’s no wonder 2/3 of Americans are obese. We saw gluttony on desserts and carbs like I’ve never seen before by people I thought might drop dead from a heart attack on the premises. Do what we do…… go to a decent Vegas restaurant and order a nice entree with side. Better food, way healthier and a MUCH better dining experience (especially post-meal)

Just to clarify, at the current moment does this this Buffet have hot crab legs?? I feel like a lot of places have cold crab legs but I don’t want that nonsense.

@Jake, we called…. Specifically asked if they were hot and not f they were KING or snow. We were told “hot, king crab” They were cold, ice water snow crab. Pathetic and false advertising. We asked for a refund and were turned down. Never will go again. Way too much unhealthy food anyways.

@Jake, Can one buy the breakfast buffet and still get the crab legs and everything featured during lunch and dinner? Thank you, Melita

On the day I was there, they had both hot and cold. May be worth a call to ensure that they'll be on the menu the day you want to stop by though.

As someone who lives in Las Vegas, and eats at these places (Bacchanal, Wicked Spoon, and The Buffet at Wynn) with regularity, I can assure anyone reading this that Wicked Spoon is not ranked ahead of Bacchanal by anyone else. Bacchanal is top tier when it comes to buffets. Wicked Spoon is good, but it is not ahead of Bacchanal, and it has certainly gone downhill after its re-opening after being closed during the pandemic. Whereas, Bacchanal is still just as good as it ever was, as is The Buffet at Wynn.
