Looking at the crowds lined up an hour or more before the A.Y.C.E. Buffet opens every Wednesday (lobster night), one has to laugh at the so-called “experts” who predicted buffets would never return after COVID. Fortunately, The Palms understands that buffets are parts of Las Vegas’ DNA. Moreover, they’ve packed this beautiful 250-seat venue, renovated shortly before the shutdown, with unlimited helpings of the things buffet-lovers crave.
A.Y.C.E boasts seven distinct food: World Pan, Revival, The Greenery, The Roastery, The Hearth, Smoke & Fire and Sweet & Light. It’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays, with Champagne brunch and dinner on the weekends. The big attractions, however, are the specialty nights – which cost a bit more, but pack in the crowds with premium products some competitors have eliminated.
Every Wednesday they add unlimited lobster to the offerings. Thursday is crab night, with Jonah, Dungeness and snow crab on the menu. And Friday is prime rib night. (Crab legs are on the menu for all three evenings.)
It’s a combination that resonates with our experts, including Las Vegas Advisor’s Anthony Curtis and Scott Roeben of Vital Vegas, both of whom listed this as a favorite.
