Located inside the Grand Sierra Resort, the Elements Buffet has underwent a remodel that is almost complete. The new decor is reminiscent of the great outdoors with classy accents. As you enter the food stations, you get a good view of all the available food.
We went in for breakfast since it was the last day of the trip. With coupon in hand, we were seated near the food area. Elements had the standard array of breakfast food including eggs, sausages, bacon, ham, hash browns, pancakes, french toast, biscuits & gravy, rice, and new york steak. They also had cereal and an omelet station. Also, a row of various breakfast pastries and cupcakes were available. I felt that the eggs were a bit watery and tasted like they came from a bottle. The sausages were OK, but a bit soft. The bacon was crispy and tasty. The french toast and biscuits & gravy were pretty good as well. I was not too pleased with the hash browns as they were not crispy and had a weird taste to them.
Overall, Elements buffet provides a nice buffet experience, but their food is a bit lacking. Although this review focuses only on breakfast, I worry that the same food quality would be evident in their lunch and dinner as well. In terms of selection, breakfast generally has fewer choices, but Elements does have all the main ones. I feel that their breakfast would be much better if they had waffle irons as well.
