Great buffet

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.

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

The overall selections of the Waterfront Buffet was amazing. I was looking forward to the sushi which was a huge disappointment. Everything else was excellent. There is something for everyone's taste buds! You won't be disappointed. The desert was very good, get the cookies when they first come out and are warm, and I loved the individual apple pies.

Although we have stayed at Harrah's many times, this was the first time we tried the buffet. Usually the line looks very long and people start getting there early. We usually get buffet coupons (courtesy of the Total Rewards Program), and this time decided to check it out. We stayed at Harrah's right before Christmas, from December 21-23, 2014. Our... More

The line to get into the buffet can be long at times but it is well worth the wait! The General Tsao chicken is out of this world! You can order your stake cooked to your liking. The salad bar is outrageous as is the dessert bar. You will always find something that you will rave about to your friends.... More

Let me start by saying that I've given this high ratings before, not this time. Things have changed for the worst. For starters the price is ridiculous, I paid almost $85 for two people. Even though there are many many choices foods and desserts they were very poor quality. This was my very favorite buffet, . but like Caesars it's... More

Dinner was $35. There was unlimited crab legs to crack and shrimps to peel. Many meat choices, many prepared dishes, a sushi area, and desserts galore. Depending upon the day of the week, if there is also an event happening at the casino, and the time the day/evening, the wait can be excruciating. They do not take reservations, unless it... More
