Couldn't get the check! Waited for over 30 minutes to pay and ended up getting a manager involved so that we and the table next to ours could leave. Absurd. This irritated me way more than finding shell in my lobster alfredo.
Honesty, not being able to locate my server and get the check is a low-end franchise restaurant issue, absolutely not what I expected at a Celebrity restaurant.

Best meal of our 5 day stay. We haven't done brunch in awhile and this was very, very good. We will definitely come back.

Best brunch buffet ever! Great variety. Nice balance of sweet and savory. Love the bottomless drink option. Desserts are amazing and perfectly bite sized so you can try a variety. Delicious meats. The only thing I can think of to improve is to have good coffee and offer non-dairy milk such as almond milk. Pasta dishes were wonderful.

Service was over the top. Food was prepared wonderfully. Lively atmosphere.
wish they had the same dessert selection that they have across the hall at their bakery.

Daughter is a huge fan of Buddy’s (and she wants to go to culinary school) so we surprised her and brought her here for her 15th birthday.

Food was outstanding! Band playing was great, but a little loud and made it hard to converse. Wish they sold their sauce by the jar. Overall made us feel special and great experience.

Food was delicious! Serving sizes were huge! No room for dessert. My husbands veal Parmesan was something out of the Flintstones. It was so huge! Would definitely come back

Came here on recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint. Joana C was our server and she was excellent. Very attentive and gave great recommendations. The food was excellent, filled me up with leftovers, so excited to eat those too!! The food was perfectly seasoned, didn’t need anything else added. Everything was brought out in a timely matter. We will 100% visit Buddy V’s each time we are in Vegas. 10/10 would recommend.

The food was fairly priced for being located on a Strip property. The food and service was above par. This will be a place that we will definitely repeat.

The food was scrumptious and server was very attentive. I would recommend a narrative that explains the television show, family, etc. The lunch menu did not share these interesting facts.

The variety is limited and the flavor profiles are above average....the service is normally high caliber, as is the wine selection.

Buddy V's is one of my favorite restaurants. My favorite is the Sunday Gravy. I bought his cookbook so I can make it at home. Everything my family has ever ordered has been wonderful.

Both hostesses were rude and we spoke to the manager who was receptive to our complaints . Pasta was Luke warm and hot as good as the past. We won’t go back next year .
