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

Brunch is supposed to be both breakfast and lunch, and, accordingly, ought to offer both types of food. They had breakfast covered. But, they were sadly lacking on lunch. There was a salad bar and a carving station and corn on the cob, but NO other sides and no fish option for a pescatarian like me. Oh, but they had... More

The breakfast and the dinner buffet are pricey (at around $42 per person for dinner and for Sunday Breakfast) for an Atlantic City buffet. The food was fresh and was tasty. The areas around the food were kept clean. On Thanksgiving weekend (a Saturday night at 7:00PM) it took about 45 minutes to gain entry to dinner. For the Sunday... More

This is one of the best buffets in AC I.M.O. The menu and prices have changed over the years but the food is still pretty good. Normally we come here for dinner and Sunday brunch. The variety of food is nice from sushi to create your own pasta to carving stations to crab legs, etc. The service at times is... More

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.
