Bally’s Sterling Silver Brunch
3645 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 862-5138

The most iconic brunch spot in Las Vegas, Bally’s legendary Sterling Silver Brunch is sure to impress all who walk through its doors. Not as much a buffet as it is a steakhouse with a bottomless menu, this venue takes its patrons back through time to a classic ‘Rat Pack’ setting with old-style decor. Guests will be dazzled by selections of bottomless filet mignon, lobster tail and rack of lamb. Custom-made crepes, lobster cognac omelets, caviar, endless fine champagne and top-shelf bloody marys make this meal worth its price and then some.
