The Buffet at the Golden Nugget Restaurant Review

: Golden Nugget’s buffet room features etched-glass booth dividers and a view of the resort’s pool area and its palm trees. It also has orange and yellow drapes, and chandeliers that emit a romantic golden glow. Omelets are cooked to order; the Sunday brunch includes Champagne. The salad bar displays mesclun greens with couscous, soups such as cream of tomato and chicken noodle, and traditional fare. At the seafood station are shrimp cocktails, sushi and herb-crusted tilapia with spinach. Among Asian specialties are spring rolls, and beef and broccoli. At the Italian booth you'll find sausage and peppers and chicken Marsala. Mexican selections include pork tamales and link sausages. We like the American station’s carved-to-order turkey. Chocolate éclairs and carrot cake are among dessert favorites. Breakfast & Lunch Wed.-Fri. $16.99; Dinner Wed.-Thurs. $23.99, Sat.-Sun. $25.99 and Friday Seafood Buffet $28.99; Brunch $22.99.
