Arthur was the only one who could lift the sword Excalibur from the stone, but anyone can enter the Excalibur buffet. The Excalibur hotel started out featuring a medieval theme, and the buffet is part of it.

A Brief History
When the Excalibur hotel opened in 1990, its more than 4,000 rooms and 70 acres of space made it the largest hotel in the world at that time. Of course, since then bigger hotels have been built, but based on the number of rooms it’s still the 7th largest hotel in Las Vegas. Back then the focus was on offering a medieval resort theme, but today that’s been de-emphasized in favor of more subtle and contemporary interior design.
The same goes for the buffet. At first it was called the Round Table buffet to properly fit in with the Arthurian theme. Now it’s just the Excalibur buffet, and when you’re here it’s just the buffet. It was upgraded and modernized in 2014 at a cost of more than $6 million.
However, it does still feature traditional buffet aspects. The more upscale buffets now come in individual serve portions, but here you still find the food items in large pans.
What They’re Famous For
One of the main reasons why this place is so highly regarded is the low cost of enjoying the Excalibur buffet experience. The prices are certainly reasonable, as weekday breakfasts cost just $20 for adults $12 for kids from ages 5 to 11 years old. The lunches cost 50¢ more for adults, while the children pay just $14. Dinners cost $25 for adults and $17 for kids.
For Saturday and Sunday brunch that goes from 7Am to 3PM, the price for adults is set at $23.49 and that also covers all the champagne and mimosas you can drink. The kids pay $17 each, and obviously they don’t get the alcoholic beverages.
Weekend dinners are upgraded, and adults can get them for $28.49 while the kids only pay $19.
Another reason for the fame of this place is the “all you can drink” privileges you can get for 2 hours. This is available for the whole day from 7AM to 10PM, and it only costs $12 per person. If you time it during the Happy Hour from 3PM to 6PM, the cost goes down to just $7. You can enjoy the featured drink of the day, along with servings of summer cooler, rum punch, margarita, draft beer, or house wine.
There’s also an all-day pass, if you tend to come in and out eating while you’re a guest at the Excalibur. In fact, the pass allows you to eat at both the Excalibur and Luxor buffets, so you can sample different dishes. Adults pay $40 for a weekday pass, while on weekends it costs $45. Children can get them for just $27 regardless of what day it is.
Just because the prices are attractive doesn’t mean that the options are in any way substandard. For breakfast you can pick the basic options including chicken fried steak with made-to-order omelets. You can also get applewood smoked bacon along with huevos rancheros. For those with a hankering for sweeter fare, the options also include donuts, cinnamon French toast, and strawberry pancakes.
For lunch and dinner, you can get to choose among 6 main stations. You have plenty of options from the carving station, Asian section, Latin station, Italian, station, American station and the Italian station. There’s also “The Pantry”, which is what they call the combined seafood and salad bar area.
The dessert station is separate from the others, and here you get your usual ice cream, cakes, and pies. However, the made-to-order crepes are fantastic. The more health-conscious will appreciate the gluten-free options and the cakes and pies with no sugar added.
It’s a very relaxed setting, with ample space that’s enough for 610 customers at a time. The high ceilings are great for the claustrophobic, and they’re decorated with artistic flair. The overall setting is warm and relaxing, with red and black booths, dark chairs, and a bright red carpet.
Why Eat Here?
You come here because it’s so relaxed and convenient. You don’t stress out at all, because the food is good and the prices are more than reasonable. What’s more, the all you can drink options and the all-day pass can make things even more relaxing.
It’s also great because somehow the lines aren’t all that long. So you won’t have to endure 2-hour waits or pay for a skip pass. You can just breeze in and enjoy, just like Arthur easily lifted the sword from the stone.
