The Roundtable Buffet at the Excalibur just went through a $6.2 million makeover, and today, it unveils as The Buffet at Excalibur, throwing Google searches into a tizzy with the dizzying array of buffets with a very similar name in Las Vegas.
Those who head to Castle Walk near the Thunder From Down Under Showroom will find a beefy 34,940-square-foot buffet with room for 610 people between the two dining areas and back of house areas. Inside, a contemporary dining room with an interactive dessert station as well as six food stations covering American, Asian, Italian and Latin dishes.
Friday nights bring out the seafood lover for crawfish, blue crab, crab legs, sushi, peel-and-eat shrimp, lobster polenta and more.
Cleo Design created the wood paneling and metal accents at the entrance. That interactive dessert station lets guests watch their made-to-order crepes and ice cream bars as they are prepared.
Graphic illustrations of fresh produce line the walls while pops of pink, purple and white highlight each display. Dewdrop pendant lighting fixtures hang overhead.
