Lately, food halls are all the rage, and buffets are getting left behind. However, a few remaining buffets are still worth checking out, including Bacchanal Buffet in Las Vegas.
Let me start by saying that neither of us are buffet people. Although we do the occasional all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ or sushi in Vegas, for the most part, we avoid buffets because the food is underwhelming, and we don’t eat our money’s worth. Quality over quantity, right? But since moving to Vegas, where there’s a buffet around every corner, we kept hearing about how excellent Bacchanal Buffet is, so we had to try it for ourselves!
And I must admit it DID live up to the hype.

Why Bacchanal Buffet is Hands Down the Best Buffet in Las Vegas?
1. Virtual Lines
As you can imagine, Bacchanal lines can get quite backed up, but now they have FreshTxt kiosks that let you check in to the line, so you don’t have to wait there physically. You get a text when it’s your turn.
If you even remotely like seafood, Bacchanal has something for you. Fresh-shucked oysters, mussels, hot and cold crab legs, shrimp, and scallops are just a few options.
3. Fresh and Hot Food
A lot of buffet food feels stale. It feels like it’s been sitting out forever, kept slightly warm from trays and lamps. At Bacchanal, the chefs are constantly working to keep fresh food coming, and the staff does a good job refreshing the plates and pans.
4. The Atmosphere
This isn’t your typical cafeteria-like buffet! They’ve done a fantastic job to make you feel like you’re dining in a nice restaurant. The only difference is that you get your own food… and can stuff your faces in a not-so-fancy manner.
5. Daily Specials
Roughly 15 daily chef’s specials are added to the daily menu! That means there will always be something new and delicious to try.
6. Have it Your Way
Bacchanal gives you an array of stations that let you customize your dish, whether the Mexican bar, baked-to-order soufflés, or crepes made in front of you.
7. The Dessert
Yes! You can find space for their yummy desserts even when you’re stuffed to the brim. An entire island is dedicated to their mouthwatering concoctions that feature everything from chocolate lava cakes to crepes made to order. Don’t forget to check out their gelato too!
8. Beautiful Presentation
You know that you can’t help but photograph your food. Many of their dishes are presented beautifully and will surely give you some likes from friends and your stomach.
We loved the fresh-squeezed juice display.
9. The Classics
I know I’ve been talking about all their unique and creative dishes. But don’t worry, they still make the classics, whether your favorites are pizza, fries, or BBQ.
