The Garden Court is a nice, less expensive diversion from the Strip buffets. The food is very good, and they have a decent selection of dishes for brunch along with a variety of desserts. It was great that it wasn't super crowded on a weekday...mid-morning. Service is friendly and the vintage interior is really cool.More

This was by far the worst buffet I’ve ever had. The only thing I could eat was chicken and bacon. Even the pancake had a strange taste

We really enjoyed the buffet. This is a few blocks off of Fremont st so it's a little bit more laid back and quieter. Very ornate dining area. Food and service was good. Would definitely eat here again next time in Vegas.

This buffet is absolutely AMAZING (especially when compared a day after the MGM buffet which was a nightmare). The food is great. The selection is great. They have salmon, locomoco, pastas, pizzas, desert, everything! And separate stations with plenty of room so no horrid lines...and jams and absolute nightmarish struggles like we just had at MGM. Eat here if you want a buffet.More

For me, the great "factor" is 'would I go again?' to determine the overall quality of nearly anything, compared to the price paid. The food was fine, nothing was unpleasant, and I tried multiple dishes in small amounts. The service was really good, the people...nice, and the food was pleasant to look at. But, for the price paid, I would pay a little more to go to another buffet (although at this time, this is the only Downtown buffet) and take my chances with better fare. No regrets, but for all the options that exist, I'd not return save for a 2-for-1 deal.More

For decades this has been our favorite combination of flavor, freshness, value and ambience among Vegas buffets. It still feels great to eat there. We're glad the Main Street Station casino reopened this buffet, and we weren't surprised that prices were higher (about $25 after...tip and tax for the daily brunch) and options were fewer in the wake of covid. But as mentioned in other reviews, quality control isn't at all what it used to be. Examples: Some salad items weren't fresh, and there wasn't much selection. The chicken fried steak was impenetrable. The fried chicken (formerly the star of the line) had skin too to tough to chew with almost no meat inside. We were almost full before our sampling turned up some really tasty items: lox at the salad station and tender shoyu chicken next to the carving station. The carving station meats also looked moist and quite good. The desserts were even better than we remembered. Not great, but satisfying bread pudding, carrot cake, soft serve ice cream and vanilla tapioca. We wanted to try the rhubarb pie, but there was no room. Our server did a great job.More

The breakfast and dinner buffets have been combined into one Brunch Buffet which is pretty much the same as the Weekend Brunch use to be. Price is higher, but that's no surprise these days. We were there at 10:00 AM; good presentation; nothing looked 'old'....The only change seemed to be the elimination of both caramel and butterscotch for the ice cream. Good FeedMore

This is in my top 3 of worst buffets ever. And I go to a lot of buffets. I came for breakfast and it is so over priced for the few items offered. I think it was $22. Honestly, $7.99 would have been appropriate, if...not still a bit over priced. There was about 4 desserts offered and none of them were good. I don't eat salad at a buffet usually, but I needed something edible, so salad it was. It was by far the best thing on the buffet, and it was quite a lackluster salad bar. Please do some major improvements to this buffet, or drastically reduce the price. I will not be backMore

The restaurant is beautiful. The staff is friendly and works hard. The food is average at best. Not quite Golden Corral quality. It wasn’t bad but not the pre-Covid buffets we were used to. The price was very reasonable and the hotel and casino were...cool to see so it was worth the trip.More

Used to be our go to breakfast buffet place before the pandemic. After pandemic my how things have changed. We went for the Sunday brunch. Price has gone up. No more discounts for BConnect members or first responders. Selection also reduced. Kalua cabbage, Portuguese sausage,...breakfast sausage were tasty as usual. Eggs Benedict, bacon, French toast were average. Fruits were fresh and sweet. Perhaps it’s the sign of the times we are in. It will take me some time to accept this as the case. That being said, I will go back and eat hereMore

I found this place on line by searching a local TV station website I found on an Internet search. Compared to those on the strip, this seemed like a bargain. I checked TripAdvisor and saw decent reviews. For less than half and even more than...some places, this was $31 a person for a buffet that included not only turkey but prime rib and more. Their sides were a little limited but otherwise, no issues with the food. We arrived about 11:20 (opened at 11) and found a line stretching around the casino floor and wondered if we would be seated by 3 o'clock. It took 80 minutes altogether to be seated. (about an hour to get to the cash register and another 20 minutes to be seated). I was annoyed with the high status people who walked in and straight to the pay point and then expected to be seated immediately. They were told they could skip the line but still had to wait with us peons to be seated but just stood there and got seated anyway! I didn't tip when paying because I wanted to wait and see how the service was. We had a great lady taking care of us so I gave her a cash tip near the end of our meal. She brought us tea and water and checked on us often. There was a lot of food. I had 2 pieces of prime rib, medium to medium rare, although I prefer mine still mooing. The turkey was so moist and tender. I had lots of turkey on my 2 plates. I love turkey skin and timed it just right on each trip so I got some good, tasty, yummy skin. The carver said he was saving it for me!!! I had mashed potatoes and some delicious rosemary stuffing. Vegetables were limited (the only shortfall) but I had some corn from the Mexican section. They had several ethnic areas including Mexican, Chinese, etc. I didn't see the peel and eat shrimp until we were leaving, but that is so messy anyway. The turkey gravy was great over the potatoes, turkey, and dressing. Yummy! For dessert, they had many "no sugar added" choices. I had 4 desserts: cream pie, cherry pie, a berry pie, and carrot cake. Again, yummy!!! Despite the 80 minutes to be seated, I think we made the best choice in Vegas for Thanksgiving lunch. The character of Main Street Station with its history only added to the experience. If I return to Vegas, I would try the lunch buffet here. We made the right choice for Thanksgiving 2021!!!More
