Our family has been here before during the winter and wasn't disappointed the first time either. This time we went during the summer and made it a point to bring extended family. Don't forget to apply for the Rewards card in the casino for your $3 discount. Each member of your group gets the discount and only one of you... More

The Forest Buffet at Harrah's Lake Tahoe consistently win the Best of Tahoe award every year for good reason. They put out an excellent buffet meal in the most beautiful view restaurant anywhere in the world. It sits on the eighteenth (and top) floor of Harrah's Lake Tahoe and has a 360 degree view of the entire Lake Tahoe basin... More

You get what you pay for and at $19.99 plus tax I was not expecting gourmet dining. But the food on offer was of a generally good quality (except the prime ribe which was strangely tasteless) and well presented. Soft drinks and coffee were unlimited and included. Coffee was the best I tasted in 3 weeks in the USA. Used... More

Located on the 25th floor in the Harrah's Casino. This buffet offer breathtaking sky views of the Tahoe area seating next to window. Came for breakfast/lunch time. Wait staff is prompt to seating and getting drinks out. Food selections are decent but not stellar. Some items lack the spices found at other buffets. Breakfast choices were okay. Lunch choices were... More

Bountiful dinner buffet for less tag $25 per person, tip included. Prime rib is served nightly. Roast turkey and dressing is served several times per week. Fried chicken and/or rotisserie chicken are available. Pizza and sushi are good. Wide variety of desserts, including a very good chocolate fudge cake. Crepes were available, but we were too full to try them.... More

The crab was spongy and salty, but it was worth the $30 a person. It's so delicious. The most amazing part was the Dessert buffet, EVERY FREAKING THING YOU CAN IMAGINE WAS THERE. Canolis, Italian wedding cookies, Lemon Meringue, etc. SO AMAZING.

Upon our arrival in Tahoe we wanted to have a substantial meal (travelling all day) and did not want to spend a large amount. We decided to try this rooftop buffet and were pleasantly surprised. The variety of the food was excellent-- meats and shrimp were bountiful (they even had osso buco) and the sides and salad options were generous... More

Our visit was disappointing. The food was ok but way overpriced. We paid $103 for three people and it was not worth that price. They do have a wide variety of food and desserts but I think that there are other buffets in Tahoe that offer just as much for less money. We will not go back there again!

I have been to many buffets in the past and usually find them to be either very good or horrible. This one was definitely not in the first category. First of all, there were 3 of us and it cost over $100. Paying that much I expected an awesome dinner. We were all pretty disappointed. The food was average and... More
