Most of the food was decent. Prime rib needed a chainsaw to cut. Line too long at crab legs. desserts were good. $75 bucks for two people.....in my opinion.....way way too much. lesson learned. never again.

While on my comped weekend, I visitied the Waterfront Buffet. I had a BOGO free and I am glad I did. Would have cost $70 for 2 people. Food was good and a bit better than Ceasars Buffet. I enjoyed the doughnuts and ribs the most. Thing I disliked was that from beginning to sitting was about an hour which... More

First time at Harrah's so were decided to try the buffet. Dinner time had an outrageous line so we decided to try breakfast buffet instead. Large assortment of breakfast foods. The best is their made to order omelette with any type of filling, delicious. Servers were very pleasant, too. Will definitely return.

Harrah's Buffet used to be an elegant and scrumptious dining experience but then they redesigned it and I feel it has gone downhill ever since. Overpriced for the weekday breakfast (no fish) and dinner (nothing special) They should not even bother to claim to have Sushi since there are 3 varieties that are less than basic.

Every time I am staying at Harrahs, we eat here at least once for dinner. The crab legs are always what draws me in and they are fantastic! Pasta station was phenomenal this time around...my meal was absolutely delicious. ( tortellini in a vodka sauce with sauteed onions peppers and tomatoes with plenty of cheese) Pumpkin spoon bread was the... More

We decided to go to the Buffet to use my comps, since an earlier incident had sold us on never coming to Harrahs again (we are dedicated Harrahs customers). At $73 for 2 persons, this Buffet should be special--it was, but in the wrong direction. The steaks were good, albeit small (I had 2). The rest of their food except... More

I've had better. The buffet was plentiful. But the food was just ok. The buffet is huge, they had all the food spread out, so ur walking around to see what they had. The coffee tasted burt to me. Grits, eggs, cream of wheat, and oatmeal were soupy. Only turkey sausage, no other alternative for non pork eaters. For $38,... More

We ate here while staying at Harrah's. It was restaurant week, so it was a few dollars less than the usual, but still cost $75 for dinner for 2 at a buffet… Service inside wasn't great --- the server didn't come around to ask if we wanted a refill on our drinks or to clear plates that we had stacked...

First night at Harrah's and looking to try as many places as we could on the trip. The Waterfront is a place you need to visit when you are really hungry. The kitchen area is divided into different styles of food and planty of crab legs. I tried to sample as much as I could but got full to quick.... More
