In recent times because of the pandemic it looked like the classic Las Vegas buffets would be gone for a long time. Well starting today The Buffet at Wynn Las Vegas is reopening although of course with some changes such as it being a serviced buffet.

The difference between a normal all you can eat buffet and this serviced buffet means you pick the items from the buffet then an employee goes to the buffet and adds the items to your plate; The wait staff are supposed to bring you well portioned dishes to your tables.

To visit the Buffet at Wynn you will need a reservation and you can order unlimited portions of food for a two hour time limit.

Buffet Hours

The announced hours which are subject to change are Monday to Thursdays from 11:30 am to 9 pm and Fridays 11:30 am to 9:30 pm with Saturdays 8 am to 9:30 pm and Sundays 8 am to 9:30 pm.

Pricing Information

Weekday prices are $36.99 brunch and $59.99 for dinner with the weekend brunch prices at $48.99 and $65.99 for dinner. The additional all you can drink program is $24.99 during the week and $29.99 on the weekends.

My Thoughts

i’m a big fan of buffets in Las Vegas with the huge selection of food options and being able to pick just what you want. Buffets also let you try items that you may not order on a normal menu and widen your food horizon.

I have eaten at the Wynn Buffet in the past and its a beautiful room and the selection and quality of food is amazing; That being said i usually eat at one expensive buffet per trip and the rest of the time eat at less expensive options the rest of the time.

They are going with a reservation system so they can control the number of people and spacing but also so their wait staff can keep up when the customers request items. I can see times even with this system you would have to wait a while for your food at if you are a larger table some people will get there food before the rest.

As i mentioned i’m a fan of buffets but i think for the moment i will see if the Wynn can work out the kinks and make it an enjoyable experience before i spend $40 or $50 on a meal.
