Village Seafood Buffet Las Vegas
The Village Seafood Buffet at the Rio Suites Hotel is one of the most appealing buffets near the Strip (the Rio is set a bit off of the Strip) and arguably the finest primarily seafood spread in the city. The middle range price is completely justified for the amazing selection of gourmet items and the sheer volume of food that you will be treated to at the Village Seafood Buffet at Rio Las Vegas. It is an innovative and ambitious menu that fuses seafood into a beautiful variety of international dishes, including Italian, American, Mexican, and Chinese (which each have their own live action serving stations). So, whereas other destinations like the MGM Grand Buffet or the Circus Circus Buffet or the Treasure Island Buffet may have a station dedicated to Asian dishes, this particular buffet works seafood into each of the Asian offerings.
Also unlike many other buffets around town, this one is only open for dinner. Hours are from 4 until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 3:30 until 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The price is $39.95, with an optional upcharge if you don't want to wait in line.
The Village Seafood Buffet takes an interesting approach to the traditional Vegas buffet spread and the breadth of selection warrants the price completely. You will enjoy a fine meal for a fraction of the cost of what a meal of similar proportions would cost at many restaurants in Las Vegas. The presentation, service, and nautical-themed interior make for a well-rounded and pleasant experience. There are endless pounds of shrimp, giant crab legs, lobster, oysters, and mussels, and that is just the very beginning. Sit back in comfortable leather chairs in a progressively designed environment and feast on the largest selection of seafood in Vegas. The Village Seafood Buffet at Rio Las Vegas certainly ranks among the best Vegas buffets.
Seafood lovers will enjoy delicacies like oysters Rockefeller, gorgeous lobster tails, hand rolled sushi, tempting seafood fajitas, perfectly prepared swordfish and salmon, and a whole host of other seafood inspired, gourmet dishes. The cost of this buffet is higher than others, but not among the highest in town. However, you are not likely to worry about the price as you are feasting on exotic delicacies like squid chow fun and kung pao scallops. Truly, the lobster, sushi, and shrimp are worth the cost of the buffet on their own. The Village Seafood Buffet also offers a selection of traditional buffet favorites including prime rib, BBQ ribs, poultry, an extensive salad bar, breads, cheeses, and plenty of flavorful and tempting deserts.
There are plenty of places to find seafood along the Vegas Strip including the Bellagio and the Todai Sushi Buffet, but the Village Seafood Buffet by far takes the cake. You really can’t go wrong at this casual eatery at the Rio Suites Hotel, especially if you can use a Village Seafood Buffet coupon, which you can many times get from the concierge at your hotel. However, if the price is a bit steep for you, the Rio has another of the most well-known buffets in Vegas—the Carnival World Buffet, which is one of the largest and most varied buffets around.
