On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I took Rapid Travel Chai’s advice and decided to try one of the best buffets in Las Vegas, the Bacchanal buffet at the Caesar’s Palace.

I arrived mid-day into Las Vegas from a First Class seat on one of Delta’s domestically configured Boeing 767 planes.

We decided stay at the Caesar’s Palace over the Palazzo or Encore because of the facilities and of their program’s ability to pre-comp 3 rooms for the members of our party. We ended up selecting a set of rooms in the Palace Tower Suites at check in. We had some time to kill before the rest of our party arrived, so we decided to check out Bacchanal for lunch. It was a great decision.

The Bacchanal is ironically located near the entrance to the pool at Caesar’s Palace. Not sure if this was intended, but I’m not sure most folks feel like checking out the pool after a visit to this buffet. The lunch cost I felt was reasonable for what you get. The cost was about $35 per person excluding drinks. But if you come on Saturday, they run an unlimited mimosa drink promotion. For this cost, you get access to their fast array of items including over 500 items on the menu.

We took a table near the pool entrance and wondered we we had a menu placed in front of us. Of course we would take the buffet, but the menu was for drinks. Ah, the up-sell, of course we took the bait.

For the first course I stopped by the seafood bar. There were mussels, clams, shrimp and grits along with a huge number of other items.

I could have easily made a meal from this bar alone. But why stop there?

For the second course I went all the way back to the Asian food bar. I went relatively light in this area with a selection of Korean BBQ ribs, duck, pork bun and a few other items. I’m not big on raw fish when it comes to buffets.

For the third course I got lost in the many buffet bars and ended up with a mixed plate of meats, cheese, salad, a giant meatball and a basket of chicken fingers and fries. All great tasting items.

For the last course before heading to the desert bar, I headed to the carving station for some succulent prime rib and Kansas City BBQ.

The prime rib was on the rare side and covered with au jus sauce. This was the highlight so far.

And finally, the best part, dessert! This dessert bar had the best presentation by far. They had mini desserts in shot glasses, plates, and ready made items like crepes. Desert Buffet Bacchanal Ceasars

I tried a chocolate crepe, key lime pie and a cheese cake. All were fantastically overfilling and great tasting.

Bottom Line

If you are in Vegas and have an opening for a long lunch, consider checking out Bacchanal at Caesar’s Palace for their buffet. I did and really enjoyed it. Just be sure to give yourself 30 minutes before you go into the water 🙂

  1. Glad you liked it although I’ve had two separate groups of friends who went at two different times be very dissapointed with that buffett. They much prefer Wicked Spoon.

  2. Thanks for photos and write-up. Headed there this summer with 19&20 year olds.

    Surely you had crepes. Wouldn’t want to try a crape.

  3. We used to love the old Palatium buffet which was in the center of the casino near the Sports Book. Waited 2 hours once on a Thanksgiving Day, but it was worth it. Just surprised at how the price has doubled: Vegas used to lure you in with the cost of meals. And now it is far more expensive than just staying at home.

  4. Agreed with Josh. Stayed at Caesars and ate at Bucchanal for 4 days. The buffett is just okay. Before leaving Vegas on the 5th day, we did a lunch buffet at Wicked Spoon. Awesome! Much better than Bucchanal! Much better!!!
