The Feast Buffet at Green Valley Ranch lives up to its name, representing a wide swath of cuisines from around the world that will leave you satisfied.
For the most part, the fairly open layout means you won't be too far off from the buffet line. You'll probably start off at the many fresh veggies and toppings at the central salad bar, just across from the middle of the buffet.
After the salad, comes the hard part: Deciding where to start on the main buffet. International options include Italian, traditional American, Mexican, Chinese and Mongolian, most of which offer at least some option that's either cut for you or cooked on-demand. The Mongolian barbecue station and pasta station are probably the two must-visit stops along the buffet for most. The former lets you put together a mix of meat, vegetables, noodles and sauce, while the latter allows you to pick what pasta, sauce and meat you'd like.
A carving station serves all the roast turkey and prime rib you could ask for, with mashed potatoes, gravy, barbecued ribs, corn bread, mac and cheese and more barbecue classics nearby. Seafood options include cocktail shrimp and sauce and crab legs on select nights.
The dessert station has plenty of cookies, cakes and assorted pastries to satisfy your sweet tooth, with a few sugar-free selections if you're watching that, as well. You can make a sundae for yourself with the soft-serve ice cream machine, or let GVR's staff give you a few scoops of regular ice cream, which is up there with the "premium" stuff you'd find in the grocery store's freezer aisle.
You can also have a milkshake made for you, which is a nice treat.
The Feast offers the typical selection of beverages, which are soda, juice and coffee, but you can also order drinks from your server for an additional cost. A glass of wine is included in the price of the buffet, though.
With this level of variety, it's no surprise that The Feast is one of the most popular off-Strip buffets.
