Fremont Street’s most premium hotel is also home to the best buffet in downtown Las Vegas.
The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino’s buffet (simply termed “The Buffet”) is not as vast and complex as other Strip buffets, although it’s also more fairly priced.
And because there aren’t a lot of buffets in downtown Las Vegas, the Golden Nugget may be your best choice for you buffet-seekers staying on Fremont.
With Victorian accents and loads of lighter wood paneling ringing the inner food stations, the decor on the second level is simple yet practical.
Some chairs give a nice view of the swimming pool and the sunbathing area below. Please note that the buffet is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

The Buffet at Golden Nugget Las Vegas Menu Items
These are always subject to change, and special evenings (like the Seafood Buffet on Friday), will offer new items. However, you’re likely to discover dishes below for most dinner trips, all of which were present during a recent visit.
Apples, watermelons, cantaloupes, melons, and pineapples are just a few of the fresh fruits and vegetables at this standard buffet.
A total of twelve salad toppings and six salad dressings were available after I narrowed my options down to four lettuce varieties: romaine, mixed greens, spring mix, and spinach.
A tomato and cucumber salad, marinated artichokes, pasta salads with tomatoes and mozzarella, macaroni salad, coleslaw, and potato salad were just a few ready-made salads available. There were nine different condiments to add to these salads as well.
Soup selections were chicken noodles and cream of spinach on this visit.
On an adjacent food island, you’ll discover chicken salad, tuna salad, some cheese plates, and pickles.
This is just adjacent to the Subway-style sandwich prep area, where many mustard and mayo condiments are available.
To the right of the sandwiches, the buffet soon turns into its Asian section.
There are four distinct varieties of sushi here, including hot tuna and spicy crab, and a Philly roll.
Next to the sushi is where you’ll find potstickers, steamed rice, fried rice, lo mein, Mongolian Beef, and General Tao Chicken.
Aside from beef sirloin steak and sausages, you’ll also find honey-glazed ham and roasted turkey in the main meat department to the right of this.
Fried shrimp, mashed potatoes, roasted chicken, grilled steak, steamed carrots, collard greens, baked fish, and potatoes au gratin are other options available for dinner.
Pork chops, baked potatoes, green beans, corn-on-the-cob, beef fajitas mix, fried fish, pinto beans, and Spanish rice.
A seafood tortellini meal, Macaroni and cheese, cioppino, and chicken parmesan are all available here.
Meatballs and garlic bread may be found in the pasta station to the right of these items. In addition, I noticed four distinct varieties of pizza offered.
There’s also chilled peel’n’eat shrimp every night, and the Friday night, more costly seafood buffet offers crab legs (both hot and cold) (both hot and cold).
Sweet choices include apple cobbler, bread pudding, many different sorts of pies and cakes (eleven, I think), and some tarts, brownies, eclairs, flan, and parfaits on individual plates.
As for sweets, a good selection of sugar-free pies and pastries were available.
The selections of eight ice cream flavors included the conventional chocolate and vanilla bean, along with cookies-n-crème, caramel swirl, orange sherbet, raspberry sorbet, and sugar-free butter pecan ice cream.
Nothing truly jumps out here that you won’t find at most other Las Vegas buffets.
The standard made-to-order omelet station has nine different ingredient/topping possibilities, plus all the normal breakfast buffet selections, such as waffles, eggs, and egg dishes, biscuits, and gravy, potatoes (many different sorts), fruit, yogurt, etc.
The buffet is fully non-smoking. There’s also a clothing rule: males have to wear shirts with sleeves on them.
