I recently went to their buffet which opened at 4:00pm. I arrived at 4:00pm and waited and waited and waited. When I asked what the hold up was, I was told the staff really doesn't come in until 4:30. Really? Then why open at 4? I was also treated very rudely but the cashier and tried to tell the manager...

We have been here a few times, once with a coupon. We don't gamble much, sometimes work in the area and this used to be a decent spot to eat. We only went there tonight because the Borgata buffet is closed on Wednesdays in the winter. Not sure if it is because of the winter season, but food quality has... More

If you have been to buffets in Las Vegas (for a LOT LESS money), then you will be disappointed in the variety and quality of food. I've never seen this advertised as a seafood buffet but they take too much space for seafood (which we don't eat). I assume that's why they charge you $39. Thank goodness we had a... More

We had to pay full price, no coupons so it was $86 for two of us without a tip. We waited about 20 minutes to pay and get a table around 4:45 on a Sunday. I was amazed at the people taking huge plates of crab legs...seemed a little greedy to me but I guess they figured they paid for... More

In my opinion, this is the best buffet I have been to in AC. They have everything from Mexican to Asian to Italian. Everything I tried was delicious.

I have visited most of the buffets at the other casinos. I would have to rate The Waterfront as the best in AC. And to receive two buffet passes as part of the room promotion, I will return to Harrahs every time for that offer!

My husband and I went to the Waterfront Buffet this past weekend.. We had a pretty long line to get in ( to be expected) and while the line was long, it was going pretty fast. That was until a Diamond member complained to the host that their line wasn't moving fast enough. They then STOPPED the gold line for... More
