Las Vegas Group Activities – Family Reunions, Work Events, and More (Part I – Food)

If you’ve settled on Vegas for your family reunion, work event, or meet-up spot just because, the next trick is deciding what to do, where to go, and (most importantly) where to eat. Most restaurants on The Strip offer some form of private dining, depending on the size of your group. From semi-private seating to renting out the whole restaurant, the options are endless.  With a variety of cuisines, price levels, and even buffets, group dining in Vegas is a breeze. Whether your party is large or small, here are some ideas for group dining options in Las Vegas.

Private Dining

Private dining can be a great way to get the whole group together, without having to worry about taking up half the restaurant. Many high end and casual restaurants in Las Vegas offer private or semi-private dining areas. The pros, of course, are that you have an entire room to yourself and your group, whether it be a small family gathering or a corporate event. The downside is the menus are usually pre-selected, so you might not have as many options as at a buffet.

For an upscale option, Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace offers pre-selected menus starting at $36 per person for lunch, $78 per person for dinner, and private dining for up to 40 people.

Mr Chow, also at Caesars, has no less than 4 private dining rooms, or you can buy out the entire restaurant for an event with 200 people or less.

For something a little smaller, try Lemongrass at The Aria, where you can sit privately with up to 10 people, or Jean Georges Steakhouse for the 12-seat chef’s table.

Buffet Dining

Gluten free. Vegan. Vegetarian. Paleo. Everyone has a different diet and different likes and dislikes.  If you’ve got a family of picky eaters, don’t stress yourself trying to accommodate the group at a normal restaurant.  Use the opportunity to take in one (or more) of Vegas’ many amazing buffets.

The Wynn even combines the best of both worlds, with a semi-private room at their Buffet that can accommodate up to 35 people.  The main room in the buffet can accommodate groups of 20 or more with advanced notice.

Bacchanal Buffet at Caesar’s does private dining as well, for up to 50 people. Or, you can rent the entire space for special events for up to 200 people. The buffet prices start at $40 per person and go up from there. But from what we hear, Bacchanal is worth every penny.

Group Dining

Many restaurants on The Strip cater to group dining with a little advanced notice. They offer group menus, ranging anywhere from $30 – $200 per person, depending on the restaurant.  At MGM, for example, you can do everything from drinks only at TAP Sports Bar to a 5 course meal at Crush. They accommodate anywhere between 7 and 50 people, and menus range from set lists to pick and choose.

Group dining is less intimate than renting out a private room, but it can also be a bit cheaper.  Depending on your budget, you can crash a more casual restaurant such as Yard House, to the more upscale Le Cirque at The Bellagio.

Regardless of your choice, make sure you plan in advance.  Restaurants and buffets require advanced notice, especially for groups larger than 10.  Some will let you make a reservation in the main dining area, some will advise you of their private or semi-private dining options, and some will encourage you to buy out the whole place. You may have to fill out a group dining/private dining request form, so make sure you plan ahead!

Small or large, family or friends, Las Vegas has tons of options for your group dining experience!
