Las Vegas buffets continue to show signs of life with the return of The Buffet at Excalibur at the castle-themed resort on Thursday, July 1. The buffet, which closed in March 2020 to prevent the spread of COVID-19, queues up the lines starting at 8 a.m.
The buffet plans to serve a weekday and weekend brunch at its six hot and cold stations covering American, Asian, Italian, and Latin dishes. Diners can pick up made-to-order omelets, rotisserie chicken, iced shellfish, smoked brisket, sushi, and beef birria, or head to the dessert station with bread pudding, crepes, doughnuts, cakes, frozen custard, and more.
The buffet went through a $6.2 million renovation in 2014. The 34,940-square-foot buffet has room for 610 people between the two dining areas and back of house areas.
The buffet plans to be open Thursday through Monday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Diners pay $24.99 per person and $14.99 for children ages 6-11 Monday, Thursday, and Friday; and $29.99 per person and $15.99 for children ages 6-11 on Saturday and Sunday. Children 5 years of age and under eat complimentary at all meal periods.
The reopening on July 1 brings back seven buffets inside casinos. The Buffet at Wynn also reopens on July 1, and joins Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, Garden Buffet at South Point, Wicked Spoon at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Circus Buffet at Circus Circus, and the MGM Grand Buffet.
