(Editor’s note: While the Mohegan Sun is open, its Seasons Buffet remains closed. When re-opening plans are announced, we’ll update this article accordingly.)
While there may be 47 different dining options at the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort, the Seasons Buffet stands out as the busiest restaurant, with a spacious, contemporary circular buffet area that seats up to 800 guests.
And with buffets starting at just $10 a person, you can see why it’s so popular among gamblers.
Located in the Casino of the Earth, Seasons Buffet is open for three meals a day, from 7:30 AM to 11 PM (on weekends).
The resort’s Native American décor transitions nicely into Seasons, and the decorative video screens above the serving area, along with a beautiful amber light-filled artistic ceiling add to the experience.

Does the Mohegan Sun Buffet Have Military Discounts?
Recently the Mohegan Sun graciously began offering a 10% discount off of the buffet price for active duty military, veterans and military dependents. I’m unsure however if this discount is still in effect as of the time of this writing.
Mohegan Sun Breakfast Buffet
Thanks to the special breakfast promotion mentioned above, Mohegan Sun breakfast buffet is very popular.
For as little as you’ll pay (with your Momentum card), you wouldn’t expect much, however there’s plenty of breakfast staples to choose from.
You’ll find made-to-order omelet station, scrambled eggs, eggs over easy, biscuits and gravy, regular bacon and turkey bacon along with sausage, roast beef and ham.

Live stations include a carving station, with barbecue St. Louis ribs, steamship roast beef, and rotisserie turkey.
The salad bar area has your typical selection of fruit, such as melon, cantaloupe, and all the usual salad toppings you would expect, with six different salad dressings.
Soups can rotate, but clam chowder seems to be a staple. The lobster bisque gets high marks here.
In the Asian section you’ll find stir fired baby bok choy, egg rolls, and lo mein, among other dishes.
Other dishes and sides included a steak chilli, fried chicken, wild rice, corn on the cob, roasted zucchini, “fresh house made mashed potatoes,” corn on the cob, grilled yellow squash, and a baked salmon with herb vinaigrette.
A seafood area features chipino mussels, oysters on the half shell, breaded white fish, fried butterfly shrimp, and a few sushi varieties.

In addition to ice cream, there’s even hand-scooped New York style cheesecake.
The buffet here has one of those self-service Coca-Cola Freestyle drink machines, which gives you over a hundred different drink combinations. For what it’s worth, Mohegan Sun says Seasons was the first casino in the United States to have one of these machines.
You’ll also find milk, coffee, tea and various fruit juices.
There’s also cash bar service available if you’d like. Specialty cocktails start at a reasonable $9.
