My husband and I ate breakfast at the Waterfront Buffet during our stay in July. Food was amazing and there was plenty of it . They had everything! Omelets, pancakes, fruits, ham carving station, sausage, eggs, bacon, pastries...etc etc. You name it they had it. I definitely recommend this buffet for breakfast and I would love to try the dinner... More

This is hands down the best buffet in Atlantic City. Sometimes the wait is long and there are no handicapped lines but the food is worth the wait. A huge variety of food to pick from. The crab legs are really good. Be prepared to eat too much as everything looks good and one is tempted to try it all!

We dined here twice in the past month. Once for dinner and once for breakfast. I am not much of a breakfast person, but i enjoyed breakfast more than dinner. There is a large selection of item, from soups and salads, to fresh sushi, pasta and seafood. It was all pretty good but nothing extravagant. The crab legs here, even... More

The quality has not wavered over the years. Worth the return stays at the hotel for the comps for the buffet. Great selection of pasta, seafood, Asian food, turkey, beef, soups, salads, desserts and more.

The kids and I decided to take my husband to the Waterfront Buffet for Fathers Day this year. We took him 6 months ago for his birthday and he hasn't shut up about it since so we decided to do it again. The food is varied and plentiful. There is a station for just about every popular genre of food.... More

Located in the Harrap's Resort Casino, this Buffet is very clean with a large choice of foods. Very expensive with a little reduction when you have Total Rewards players card. Service is very fast and furniture is very confortable.

Very bland - crab legs are precooked and reheated. Steaks are tough and usually overcooked. Would be great to have a true "fresh fruit" bar.

We (my wife and I) had a fantastic meal at the buffet with a huge assortment of choices to eat. It took us over 2 hours to eat all that food: Tacos, Sushi, Steak, freshly Grilled Salmon, cooked right in front of you with a Lemon Sauce (which alone was one of the best Salmon I tasted anywhere) Chinese food,...
