Buffet at Mandalay Bay

The Mandalay Bay buffet often makes the short list of the best buffets in Las Vegas. It combines an ever-changing selection of sumptuous foods to please just about everyone’s tastes with a nice ambiance as well as professional service. Mandalay Bay is one of the most recognizable destinations in terms of hotels and resort casinos. The Bay Side Buffet Mandalay Bay lives up to the expectations of the pampered guests that stay at this enviable accommodation. Of course, there are also a wide range of other dining options at the hotel, but if you are interested in a great meal with a broad selection of options, the buffet may just be the best option for you. It is also a great resource if you have a large group or a lot of kids who need a range of selections to stay happy. There also are Mandalay Bay buffet coupons available to lighten the blow of what is already a relatively inexpensive buffet on the Strip.

Panoramic views of the eleven-acre tropical lagoon at Mandalay Bay provide the setting for what is a most atypical buffet experience. Although the facility can seat up to 500 people, it is partitioned in such a way that you will certainly not feel as though you are being herded through lines or into cafeteria-style seating. Rather, there is a cozy and comfortable atmosphere at the Mandalay Bay Buffet. There is a quite a bit of foliage in the facility as well, adding to the tropical feel of the outdoor lagoon. And although it is the environment that sets the buffet at Mandalay quite apart from other like establishments, it is likely to be the food that you remember it for the best.


The Bay Side Buffet Mandalay Bay is open for breakfast from 7 a.m. until 10:45 p.m. and costs about $16. Expect fresh, always hot food, including the obligatory omelet station, which is so good that it can have a bit of a wait here. However, it is unusual to have to wait to get into the buffet overall. Other breakfast favorites are also on tap, including everything from pancakes and waffles to sausages and bacon, but also crepes and a carving station. The Sunday Champagne Brunch is one of the best aspects of the Mandalay Bay Buffet, served from 7 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. The Champagne is unlimited and the food is exquisite. Get there early to avoid longer lines.


Lunch is served from 11 a.m. until 2:45 p.m. and includes sushi for any and all sushi lovers. Other favorites include everything from jumbo shrimp and king crab legs to smoked salmon, Denver lox, and an impressive variety of cheeses and artisan breads. You’ll find it all here at the Mandalay Bay Buffet. There is an array of fine meats, soup, fish, as well as more unique treats such as paella, calamari, and potstickers. Lunch is about $19, which is among the more reasonable prices for a buffet lunch of this caliber in town.


Dinner is available between the hours of 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. for the price of about $25. Many international favorites are available for dinner, including Italian, Mexican, and more, but one of the best aspects is the prime rib, which is rumored to be quite excellent here. Other high quality meats are available from salmon to chicken to beef. And, of course, a beautiful selection of desserts caps everything off. You'll find simpler desserts like cookies all the way up to delectable cheesecakes and tarts.

Be sure to consult with your concierge to find out what kinds of Mandalay Bay buffet coupons may be available. You can also get coupons for buffets like this one from the Las Vegas tourism board, and many times from coupon books in your hotel room, or even from a server or host at the restaurant itself.
