Enjoyed it all even though items were your average variety. Dessert was to die for. Pie slices were way too big though. 3 people ate a taste from about 3 different pies. Prime rib was good, rotisserie chicken dry as was the roasted turkey breast. Liked the asian foods.

This is a wonderful restaurant. Great buffet and beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. Completely surrounded by windows, so you get some of the best views of Lake Tahoe! The food is amazing!

Paid over $75.00 for 3. Plates were inconveniently located in one spot so that you had to cut into a line to get one. The plates were almost too hot to touch. Lines were slow and food variety wasn't exciting or so tasty that we wanted seconds any of the choices. The beverage table server was friendly. Not a place... More

The Saturday brunch buffet was good but not great. They do have a build your own omelet station that is pretty nice. I must admit, however, that I resent the cook having a tip jar right out front. The cost of cooking an omelet should not be an "add on" to an already $20 or so brunch buffet. So, overall,... More

The waffles were huge thick and oh so yummy!! French toast and bacon very good. Pancakes ok, eggs ok, sausage ok. Prime rib was very good. Didn't order an omelet but they looked really good. Mimosa was a nice bonus. Desert to die for!! The chocolate cake and the thick cheesecake were amazing!! The location is stunning at the very... More

I kind of don't know what we were thinking. This last Sunday, my husband and I decided to eat at Harrah's Forest Buffet for our last meal in Lake Tahoe. We frequently visit Las Vegas and this buffet is on par with the lower-mid range Vegas Buffets. We arrived on a Sunday at noon and there was about a thirty... More

We thought the prime rib, Korean chicken and salmon were very good. Also liked the crepes made to order for dessert and the Apple pie. The rest of the food was average and prawns were poor but overall liked the buffet and thought it was good value. Getting there at 5.15 on a Monday night gave us the last available... More

It's always enjoyable to dine and enjoy the view from above. This place offer both. The Restaurant is on the 18th floor. Always request a table by the window overlooking the Lake. The Buffet selections is awesome any day but a lot better on Seafood week-ends. A bit pricey but worth it!. Having worked in a Casino environment & Restaurant;... More

Went here for Sunday brunch with the family. This was our first visit to Tahoe and we came to Harrahs on this day specifically for the brunch, chose it because of all the positive reviews and I was looking forward to "the view" that Harrahs touts in their advertising. I kind of thought it would be similar to a Vegas... More

We ate dinner here on Friday ($31.99) and Saturday ($34.99). You get a $3 discount per meal if you show your Total Reward Card (They're free if you don't have one). Friday night is seafood night. All the crab legs, shrimp or salmon you can eat, along with prime rib and dozens of other choices. Saturday's offerings were more crab... More
