Only went to two when I went last summer. Caesar's and Bellagio. I can say without hesitation AVOID Caesar's, it's pathetic. You can't see the food from the entrance but when you walk in the only thing to cross your mind is "that's it"? It's really slim picking. Me and my wife were wondering where the other lines were, there just wasnt anything to eat.
I've tried Mandalay Bay, Bellagio and Mirage. Value for the money, the Mirage took it away. Same King Crablegs and more stations than Bellagio, for $24.95 ,versus $37 at bellagio and $32 at MB. I really felt that the B was over priced. I expected to be blown away for that price, but it did not have as much variety as the Mirage. If you play 4 hours of poker at Mirage and advise you'll come back tomorrow, they'll write you a full dinner comp for the buffet. Highest value comp per hour out of any Vegas poker room I've played at out of Mandalay Bay, MGM, Paris, Bellagio, Caesars or Planet Hollywood

I've only eaten at 1 buffet in Vegas, Planet Hollywood's Spice buffet about 1 year ago. I thought it was a good value for the money (went there for lunch, ate heavy and was able to just snack for dinner). Also, it had a very nice selection of different cuisines, so that makes it easier to find something for just about anyone. Based on that, I'd recommend it.
The Wynn and Bellagio both sound really nice (not so big on seafood so Rio is a bit less appealing).

but seafood in Vegas isn't my bag, as I live 10 feet from the most productive estuary on the planet.
I have to agree with this. Coming from Alaska it's difficult to find what I consider quality seafood. Not only good quality but it isn't always prepared properly. Having said that, I have been to the Rio seafood buffet and I wasn't really impressed. It was ok, but not what I was expecting for the money.
yes, the seafood buffet at the rio is not worth the time or money ($38 +tax),i was just there Oct 24,2009, and let me tell u that they don't have everything that swims on this buffet,they only had two kinds of fish,one with batter and one without........pretty weak for a all seafood buffet if u ask me.....
just pick one and hope u like it,u can read a hundred good reviews and end up not liking it......and for me i find breakfast buffets to be the best,then dinner buffets,never ever eat lunch buffets......
