Why did we dine here? – The Bally’s Sterling Brunch Buffet is the one Vegas buffet that has been on our hit list for many years. We had not stayed over on a Sunday in Vegas for years.. Finally we got a chance during Defcon, which happened to be in the same hotel. How convenient.

Since 1981, this high end buffet has been the goto splurge. The Sterling was complimentary to high rollers when it opened! The buffet actually closed when the Bally’s Steakhouse shut. It was resurrected when BLT Steak took over the location. BLT took the idea of a high end buffet and kicked it up a notch. Many of the items in the buffet are in their normal menu.

Summary – Excellent buffet, high quality but expensive.
Insider Tip – Make Reservations

Cuisine – International
Location – Las Vegas, Bally’s Hotel

Decor, Vibe – Bally’s Sterling Brunch is situated inside the BLT Steak restaurant. Modern steakouse decor with a bar area up front. This is a cozy small restaurant, not a massive buffet like other Vegas hotels.

Don’t forget to ask for a coffee or cappuccino.

Service – Bally’s Sterling Brunch had above average service. The waiter was around to help with drinks. We did have to do some flagging to get plates taken and drinks ordered.

Value – Pricing is on the extreme side, but you do get quality.

Alternatives – Nearby buffets of this caliber are lacking. Caesars Bacchanal Buffet is good but not at this level.

Verdict – Bally’s Sterling Brunch is one of the best Vegas buffets. The venue is modern and Food quality is high. Their strongest areas are caviar, lobster tail, steak and desserts.

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.

    Have you tried tsar Nicoli caviar? Or done a taste comparison of austrailian/maine/California lobster tails? If so, you might adjust your enthusiasm and review of these items.
