I decided to pop in here as I was gambling. I thought it might try to compete with Vegas for quality and variety- not so. The food was limited in variety- some asian and of course prime rib- no real seafood. The prime rib was dry and the asian was really under-whelming. Might be a good choice for families with... More

I came here with my mom and sister. It seemed kind of price-y, it came out to about 55 dollars, it was 12 dollars for a 7 year old child which seemed a lot, children don't eat that much. The food was good however, a variety to choose from like sushi and other seafood, dinner and breakfast foods, and a... More

This was the second of two buffet visits for the week. After a slightly above experience at another resort down and across the street from this location, we thought this might present a better result; especially with the Harrahs name attached. Unfortunately, it was worse. The food was average at best and the service even worse. The best thing going... More

We had a super amazing experience at the Forest Buffet. A lot of options to choose from. Multi cuisine varieties of food. Never seen such a large collection of desserts. Great view of the Lake Tahoe. Very crowded during the weekends. Price was just right. We never had such an amazing buffet experience before. Enjoyed our meal thoroughly.

Having read the reviews on TA, we decided to give the buffet a try. The place was busy but not as expected. They have a queue system which indicates along the way how long your wait from that point is! You pay as you enter and get a seperate check for any alcoholic drinks, which were reasonable to be fair.... More

Reading reviews before coming made me reluctant to come. I was pleasantly surprised. PRICE: Other reviews listed different prices. We paid $19.99 per person. The receipt listed that price as the Sunday through Thursday price. I don't know what Friday and Saturday price is. FOOD: We came at 8:05 pm. They close at 8:30. None of the food wowed me... More

We went for an early dinner 5:30PM and waited for 10 minutes to be seated. The line got longer after 6PM. View to the lake was gorgeous. Everyone in our party found something to eat (Grandparents, adults and 3 kids). Good prime rib and bbq rib. Fish was also good. Pasta okay. Asian station edible - there are noodle, string... More

The buffet for New Year's Eve was delicious! Filet Mignon, salmon, sushi, etc. There wasn't a wait. Harrah's was the best casino here as well.
