Great buffet. Endless crab legs included in the price. Amazing desserts. Steak, turkey, sushi, pizza, salad, did I say desserts? Yummy. Could have ate there twice.

I was so disappointed to find out that this buffet is not open on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays. On Tuesday night - the parking deck was almost at capacity -midnight - so I would guess there were still alot of guests there in the morning- that were hungry. Breakfast is my favorite meal.

We had the dinner buffet on a Wednesday for $34.95. It was a good deal because we had a bogo. We arrived at 5:30pm and the line was not very long, although most people arrived earlier because the restaurant was pretty full. We basically went for the crab legs which were nice and juicy and eaten by the plateful. There... More

A buffet is a staple attraction in a good casino. The offerings are often a reflection of the overall value of the property itself. Chicken thighs, rice, and Mac & cheese, at any price, is a lesser buffet than carved meats, grilled steaks and extensive seafoods. The Waterfront at Harrah's delivered beautifully in what you could want from a buffet.... More

Loved the food here. Most of what we ate was very tasty! Especially the crab legs. Pretty long line at 4pm when they opened for dinner. Pretty standard Vegas style buffet :)

We have been going to Harrah's buffet for years. Since it has opened in its current location, it has been going downhill. My wife and daughter insisted we go there last week even though I have been saying it is no longer worth the money. Off we went, mostly because we had buy 1 get one coupons. By the time... More

Has the quantity all buffets have but also has pretty decent quality. Breakfast buffet is pricey but broad selection and good food. Omelette bar does a nice job, carving stations for oven baked ham and turkey dispense some of the best ham I have had. Lots of pastries/baked goods and even breakfast pizza

This used to be one of my favorite places to dine, but they've scaled back quite a bit on the food selections and there are many cheaper options now. Most often the service is slow and some of the servers are just downright unfriendly and unresponsive. Definitely not worth the almost 40 dollar a person charge in my opinion.
