Best Buffet in AC

There is no way one can taste each and every item this buffet offers for dinner unless you’re into competitive eating. The spread is so vast that it makes it even more imperative that you do a walk-through to see the offerings before making your decisions on how to indulge. And if you’re one of... read more

While staying at Harrah's in A.C. me and my husband visited the waterfront buffet. I thought it would be like the average buffet. I was wrong!! The place was clean, waiter's on point (didn't have to ask for my beverage to be refilled). Food was superb, along with the many choices and there's a cook at every station, so u... More

My fiancé and I ate at the Waterfront Buffet on Wednesday and Thursday, June 17th and 18th. The first night Steven was our server. We could not expect better service anywhere. He was the best server we have had at any restaurant we have patronized in years. Perhaps due to Steven's excellent service we had unrealistic expectations as to what... More

Amazing buffet! There is something for everyone! Our favorites were the crab legs with butter, the made-to-order steaks, the deliciously moist carved meats (turkey and roast beef) with mashed potatoes and gravy (YUM!), and the dessert spread! The stir fry was a little too salty for me (too much teriyaki and soy sauce)...but overall, we felt we got our money's... More

The Waterfront buffet is great, especially if you love seafood. Crab legs, clams, shrimp, oysters. Yum. The overall buffet has something for everyone of every age. From Sushi, to fried chicken. Love it.

We went on a Monday night, if we had not been comped 1 meal, it would have been a very expensive buffet. We were quite hungry when we went, and there were some definite stand outs, but it really lacked in vegetables (other then a small salad bar). The mac'n'cheese was really really good, the corn served by the crab... More
