Is this the Best buffet in Las Vegas?
Bacchanal Buffet Walk Thru Video
The Caesars Bacchanal Buffet was the latest and greatest buffet to open in 2012. They spent $100 million to create the best buffet in Vegas. USA Today rated it as the top buffet in 2013. Some have called it the next great buffet after Wynn and Bellagio, so we had to give it a visit. Many people have not visited the legendary Bally’s Sterling Brunch Buffet. How would this buffet compare to the local competition?

Remember – There is a two hour limit to the gluttony.
There was an hour wait, when we visited for dinner in June 2014, even though they accommodate 600 people at a time. ($52.99 Mon-Thursday) You can avoid the lines by coming early or late. Lunch has shorter waiting times. ($37.99 Mon-Thurs) We returned for Weekend Champagne Brunch in August 2015. ($49.99, $48.99 for Total Rewards Members)

Service – Caesars Bacchanal Buffet had above average service. The waitress was around to help with drinks and plate changes. Better service than most buffets.
Value – Pricing is reasonable, but on the high side, given the location and quality level. Come for brunch on Saturday or Sunday if you want to save money and get unlimited Champagne.
Verdict – Caesars Bacchanal Buffet is one of the best Vegas buffets. The location and venue are beautiful and modern. Food quality is high but not as high as Bally’s. The food was not as inventive as Wicked Spoon. Their strongest areas are the cooked food section including meat entrees and Italian food.
Buffets in Asia take this concept to another level. Check out our reviews of the Ritz Carlton Singapore Sunday Brunch buffet and the Conrad Hong Kong Sunday Brunch.
