Forget SLS, Excalibur Will Host a $6 Million Buffet

MGM Resorts International is investing more than $6 million to revamp The Excalibur Roundtable Buffet.

After shuttering this Sunday, when, or rather if, the SLS Buffet at SLS Las Vegas reopens early next year, it will face fresh competition on the Strip from a totally revamped, all-you-can-eat, dining rival. And surprisingly, a very serious amount of cash is being invested in the project.

The Excalibur Roundtable Buffet shuttered back in September, a weak link in the gradual upgrades to the Medieval-themed resort. Set to debut in January, new paperwork shows owners MGM Resorts International are well underway in fixing up the buffet and the adjacent employee dining rooms to the tune of $6,219,017 in estimated construction costs.

The beefy 34,940-square-foot project will be large enough to hold 1,375 people between the two dining areas and back of house areas.

As the resort hacks away at slowly removing the old-timey theming, the buffet will join the recent modern decor changes to the new food court, the new Johnny Rockets, upgrades to Dick's Last Resort and sections of the casino floor. The fake medieval dining hall ambiance of the buffet is not expected to return.

Between now and January, very hungry guests are pointed to the resort's Camelot Steakhouse for a breakfast buffet available from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. priced at $16.99 for adults, or head to neighboring resort Luxor for their MORE The Buffet with breakfast, lunch and dinner service available from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., daily.
