It has three hotel towers, 2,100 hotel rooms, a 64 lane bowling alley, movie theater and even an equestrian center.
It also has a very reasonably-priced buffet that has recently completed some remodeling and refreshing.
With just over 137,000 square feet of casino floor space, The South Point is, surprisingly, one of the ten biggest casinos in Las Vegas.
As such, its popular Garden Buffet does a pretty good job in satisfying the needs of the South Point gamblers with affordable lunch, brunch and dinner buffets.
The Garden Buffet is located on the first level, right off of the casino floor. We found the line to be long at night, but it moved quickly. There is plenty of free parking at the South Point, and the quickest access to the buffet may be the surface parking out front.
The buffet’s layout is very open, and the décor very basic. Noise from the slots just a few feet away combine with the chatter from other hungry patrons to make it sort of noisy here.
However the South Point makes for that with a modestly-priced buffet (by Las Vegas standards) that offers some nice touches, such as free unlimited mimosas during brunch, (more on that below).
South Point Garden Buffet Prices & Hours
We’ll preface this by saying the prices below are for CLUB members.
CLUB is the South Point’s player’s card. It’s free to sign-up for of course, and you don’t even have to have gambled to get the buffet discount. You simply have to show the card when arriving at the buffet.
It’s very important that you arrive with the CLUB card. Without it, you will pay $3 more for than each of the prices listed below, which are before tax and tip.
In June 2022, South Point raised the prices a dollar a buffet, (and $2 for the seafood buffet), however this remains an incredibly affordable buffet. Regular buffet prices for CLUB card holders are listed below:
|Meal||Hours||Club Member Price|
|Breakfast||Monday – Friday: 7 AM – 10 AM||$11.95|
|Lunch||Monday – Friday: 11 AM – 3 PM||$15.95|
|Champagne Brunch||Saturday & Sunday: 8 AM – 3 PM||$23.95|
|Prime Rib Dinner||Saturday – Thursday: 4 PM – 9 PM||$23.95|
|Seafood Night||Friday: 4PM – 10 PM||$41.95|
The weekday breakfast includes unlimited Bloody Marys. During the weekend Champagne brunch, you receive unlimited champagne or mimosas.
This higher-priced Seafood night features seafood dishes not offered during the weekday. Prime Rib is available as well. With the seafood night, you receive two free glasses of wine or draft beer.
Please also note the one hour break between lunch and dinner.
I mention this as it prevents one from utilizing a budget-minded buffet trick in which you show up late to lunch and stick around when they bring out the more expensive dinner items.
South Point Garden Buffet Holiday Pricing
Unlike with some of their casino cousins to the north, the Garden Buffet doesn’t significantly increase buffet prices on holidays like Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
The Mother’s Day Brunch on May 8, 2022 for example, was $24.95 and features an expanded menu.
For Christmas 2022, the Christmas dinner buffet was $23.95 (with Club card), and ran 8 AM to 2 PM.
The 2023 New Year’s Eve and New Years Day Brunch (from 8 AM to 3 PM), is also a reasonable $23.95 (with Club card). Also 8 AM to 3 PM.
The 2023 New Year’s Eve dinner buffet, from 3 PM to 10 PM, cost $43.95 and included unlimited champagne, wine, sangria and draft beer.
You can access the menus for holiday buffets from the South Point’s Garden Buffet webpage here:
Kids from ages 4 to 8 pay half price of the non-card price. Kids 9 and up pay full price and children 3 and under eat for free.

Every night there is also the Mongolian Grill – a cook to order Chinese/Mongolian station where you pick the protein, ingredients and sauces, which are then prepared on the grill in front of you.
South Point buffet’s carving station has prime rib, every night of the week. You’ll also find pork loin and turkey. And next to it are toppings like regular horseradish, creamy horseradish, cranberry (for the turkey), etc.
As for desserts? There’s ice cream of course, and the separate gelato area is staffed by an employee who scoops up your selection from behind the counter. I counted six different gelato flavors.
In addition, there are your standard array of pies, cakes, cookies and pastries.
