The Excalibur’s buffet reopened on July 1st after a lengthy suspension. It’s currently open for brunch on a few days a week, but that’s expected to change shortly.
The demand is there, as seen by the frantic activity at this resort and the rest of the Strip. With slightly under 4,000 hotel rooms, Excalibur is Las Vegas’ 6th largest resort. It is located at the world’s busiest crossroads.
This Las Vegas hotel and casino’s buffet is well-known for its speedy service and low prices, making it a popular dining destination for locals and tourists alike.
It used to be known as the Round Table Buffet, but it was renamed “the Buffet” in late 2014 after a $6.2 million renovation.
Seating for up to 610 people is available in the almost 35,000-square-foot restaurant. Red carpet, dark seats, and booths in red and black dot the dining room’s high ceilings, which are also adorned with modern art deco flourishes.
It’s situated on the Castle Walk Level, above the casino floor, and accessible through the elevator.
Compared to other of Vegas’ most renowned buffets, the lineups here are said to be very short.
The low price and convenient location of the Excalibur make this a popular choice for the thousands of visitors that stay and play there. After getting it free as part of a hotel room package or via M-Life card points, people often come to the buffet.
However, this buffet is still more like an “old school” buffet in that most of the menu dishes are served in giant pans rather than individual servings as at the more upmarket buffets that have been refurbished.
Hours and Costs for the Excalibur Buffet
The current buffet pricing is shown here. Labor Day weekend and other major events, such as the Super Bowl, increase prices.
|Monday & Tuesday (8 AM – 3 PM)||$26.99||$14.99|
|Wednesday & Thursday||Closed|
|Friday, Saturday & Sunday (8-3)||$29.99||$15.99|
There is no charge for children aged 5 and under; however, children ages 12 and above must pay adult pricing.
In addition, the 8.38 percent Clark County sales tax is not included in these costs. The buffet is now self-service, so you don’t have to leave a gratuity. You’d have to pay $65.06 after-tax for a weekend buffet for two individuals.
You should also remember that MGM Grand Buffet and other MGM Resorts buffets have higher costs on holidays.
Holiday buffet costs normally rise by roughly $4 per person. However, this may fluctuate.
Breakfast items include the usual suspects, such as chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy, and, of course, eggs, as well as a station for custom omelets. Also, there is a crepes-to-order section.
Huevos rancheros, eggs benedict, caramelized plantains, sausage, turkey sausage, and applewood smoked bacon are just a few ready-to-eat items available.
Strawberry pancakes and cinnamon French toast, and a selection of doughnuts and other pastries are among the most decadent options.
Two meals a day
For lunch and supper, there are six major stations.
Menu items are subject to change at the executive chef’s discretion, so here’s a brief peek at what’s offered. Also, consider that the weekend night buffet is more costly since it offers a greater selection of seafood than the weeknight buffet.
Latin Station: Chicken tamales, cheese and Chile Rellenos, seafood paella, and a baked basa fish dish with pineapple salsa.
Make your burritos with seasoned beef and guacamole, shredded cheese, olives, sour cream, lettuce, green salsa, red salsa, and pico de gallo in the make-your-own-burrito section.
Asian Station: sushi (spicy tuna and California roll), ginger chicken wontons and leek shrimp dim sum fried rice stir fry veggies potstickers, and Mongolian beef steamed rice fried rice
Carvery” station: Roast beef, turkey, and Italian sausages are served at the “Carvery” station, including fresh-cut meats.
American Station: you’ll find bourbon molasses pork ribs, fish and chips, fried chicken, roasted chicken, meatloaf, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, and sweet potatoes with a plate of marshmallows on top since no one would eat sweet potatoes without marshmallows on top.
Italian Station: Pizza, baked ratatouille, spaghetti with either tomato sauce and/or meatballs, pasta primavera, and marsala mushroom stuffed chicken is available at the Italian Station.
The Pantry: seafood and salad bar is located in the Pantry.
Saffron-and-black-mussel-infused prawns and oysters are among the seafood dishes on the menu.
Crab legs were still an upgrade option at the Luxor Buffet as of this writing in 2020. (on weekends only, I believe). Snow crab legs are available for an extra $9.99.
There are no pre-made salads on the salad side. Just your regular condiments and toppings are there for you to select from. Cold salads include a quinoa salad and chicken and crab salad. Chicken noodle soup and minestrone were the two soups served on a recent visit.
A crawfish boil, a veal & artichoke spinach dish, and chicken cordon blue are among the weekend buffet additions that aren’t available at the lower-priced evening buffet.
Excalibur’s dessert buffet is located on its island, a little distance from the main area. This might be an attempt to get you to walk around a little more before you dive in.
The highlight of this desert island is the opportunity to try a variety of sweets, including crepes made to order.
As the chef prepares the ingredients in front of you, you may pick from various options like caramel apple pieces or blueberries, pineapples, or strawberries before the chocolate sauce is added (if you choose).
There are pies and cakes with no added sugar in other parts of the desert island, such as the banana cream pie, chocolate cream pie, carrot cake, and others. Gluten-free treats may also be found in a small part of the store.
There’s also a popular chocolate lava cake and bread pudding to choose from and the typical soft-serve ice cream flavors of chocolate and vanilla.
Cookies, cupcakes, little individual dishes of caramel flan with fresh fruit, eclairs, chocolate fudge moose, cannoli in a cup, and crème puffs are presented in individual servings.
Pepsi drinks, iced tea, and coffee are available at the self-serve drink stations and various juices.
You may also purchase a to-go box for $19.99 at the buffet for a one-time fill-up. Every buffet has the same pricing. At this time of year, the to-go package costs $21.99.
Excalibur Buffet offers unlimited alcoholic beverages.
For the time being, this option is unavailable.) When it returns, we’ll update this.
Unlimited mimosas and champagne are included in the weekend brunch on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
An unlimited alcoholic beverage permit may also be purchased at the buffet. As a general rule, prices are as follows:
From 7 AM to 11 AM: $14.99.
From 11 AM to 6 PM: $9.99
From 6 PM to 10 PM: $14.99
A two-hour time limit applies. Draft beer and house wine are included in this package’s beverage selections.
Optional All-Day Wristband
Please be aware that this is an option that is still accessible. This section will be updated as soon as it returns.
You may buy a wristband that gives you all-day access to both the Excalibur Buffet and the Luxor Buffet as part of the “Take 2” option.
In essence, these are the prices for a day of unlimited eating:
Monday – Thursday: $41.99 for adults ($26.99 for children)
Friday – Sunday: $48.99 ($26.99 for children)
Since three meals at Excalibur cost $67.97 before tax when purchased individually during the week (vs. $41.99 before tax for the wristband), this is an incredible deal that allows you to enjoy Sin City’s culinary scene for less.
On the other hand, the low average price of $13.99 for each meal should be a consolation if you become tired of eating buffets throughout the day.
The all-day pass jumps up to $49.99 on holiday weekends.
