The 8 Best Seafood Buffets in Las Vegas 2022

If you love seafood, heading to one of Vegas’ renowned all-you-can-eat buffets is a great option. You’ll find all your favorite seafood items, and you can pile your plate as high as you like with as much as you think you can manage.

Due to the effects of the covid pandemic, there aren’t as many buffets in Vegas as there once were. However, plenty have already managed to bounce back, so here are the top picks to look out for while you’re there.

Not Dedicated Seafood Buffets – But Still a Good Selection

None of the buffets on our list – with the possible exception of Friday seafood nights at South Point’s Garden buffet – are dedicated seafood buffets.

Rather, we have chosen seven of the best Vegas buffets that have made a comeback post-covid where you will find the best selection of seafood – as well as a whole range of other food items that are sure to make your mouth water.

Among the most recent to reopen its doors, as of April 2022, the A.Y.C.E. Buffet at Palms Casino Resort is finally back.

Thanks to the combination of a wide range of high-quality food and surprisingly reasonable prices, A.Y.C.E. is known as one of Vegas’ best value buffets.

However, for seafood lovers who want something a little bit special – and don’t mind paying a bit extra – there are two options that will satisfy all your seafood cravings.

Friday nights are snow crab and prime rib nights while Wednesday dinners are lobster nights – and although both options cost more than the regular dinner, like everything else at this buffet, they still represent great value for money.

Seafood highlights

On Wednesday nights, fans of lobster will love the opportunity to gorge themselves on unlimited whole lobsters and lobster tails, while on Fridays, the lobsters are replaced by succulent chilled snow crab legs – as well as prime rib.

Along with these stars of the show, you can look forward to other seafood delights such as chilled or steamed shrimp, seafood ceviche, octopus salad and garlic butter spiced prawns.

You will also find yourself being tempted by piles of bright red crawfish, shrimp cocktail and dishes such as creamy shrimp and shell pasta. There’s also a good selection of sushi and sashimi along with several seafood dim sum options.

What else do they serve?

At A.Y.C.E, the different areas are organized by the style of cooking rather than country of origin, and there are seven distinct sections: World Pan, Revival, The Greenery, The Roastery, The Hearth, Smoke & Fire and Sweet & Light.

The Roastery and Smoke & Fire provide meat-eaters with all the honey-glazed ham, beef brisket, assorted sausages and roast chicken they can manage while The Hearth specializes in oven-cooked treats like pizza as well as made-to-order pasta dishes.

Revival is a health food enthusiast’s dream, with highlights including jackfruit coconut curry, The Greenery provides a wide range of salads, World Pan offers delectable dishes like Jamaican jerk chicken and Sweet & Light is where to head for desserts like peach cobbler.

Like Excalibur, Luxor is owned by MGM, and the food and overall experience there are also quite similar.

It isn’t a high-end buffet, and it doesn’t have the largest range of food in town, but it’s still a good pick if you want value for money – and there should be enough seafood options to keep most diners happy.
