Aria is one of the nicest and most upscale resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. So it makes sense that they would have one of the best buffets in town. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as a fabulous weekend brunch the Aria buffet has a reputation for excellence.
In order to make the most of your dining experience, you’ll need to know prices as well as the hours the buffet is available and the menu of food choices available.
Aria Buffet Prices, Hours & Menu? The Aria buffet prices can range from about $30 to $60 depending on the time and day of the week. For an additional charge of $20, each diner can enjoy “All You Can Drink” alcoholic beverages. The Aria Buffet is open from 7 AM to 10 PM, seven days a week. The menu choices run the gamut from fresh seafood and crab legs to Mediterranean, American, Italian and Asian dishes.
The Aria Buffet is often counted as one of the best when it comes to Las Vegas buffets, for both quality and price. Knowing your options ahead of time can help you plan your days and budget accordingly. The aim of most casinos is to make sure you have plenty of money to spend on the games, so their buffets are reasonably priced. The Aria Buffet follows this formula and gives you and your group a great quality meal for a fair price.
Keep reading as I’ll lay out all of the specifics and options below.
