Good food, view a plus!

Went to SLT with family for a few days. First place that we visited to eat dinner. Good selection of food but the view is a plus. Especially that the mountains still have snow. They have desert that's sugar free! For one thing, that's good for those that have DM.

Amazing Seafood buffet! First time ever at this location and the view alone makes it worthwhile! Most times buffets like this are so so but with the amount of options and fresh food makes it differ from all the ones I've been too! The tahoe local card is definitely worth getting because you save about 10 bucks! Service is good... More

Paid almost $40 each for buffet. The only expensive item on the line was snow crab clusters. The tilapia was pretty good and the food was good in general, but it was not worth $40. The sushi was horrible and they only had about 4 choices. I believe their price drops to around $25 per person when they don't include... More

We were disappointed on a Friday night when we expected to have the great selection of fresh seafood that used to be on the buffet years ago. I can remember having all of the baby lobsters you could eat, plus many other fish dishes for the sum of $19.99 each. We paid $68 for two dinners and the food was... More

I love the Forest buffet at Harrah's, and try to eat there at least once per visit. There is always a wide variety, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is usually a wait, so try to arrive early. It's on the 18th floor, so the views are fabulous. If you get there early, you might get a window table. This... More

This buffet was the worst one I have been too. For the pice I expected decent food and A cleaner restaurant. I do not suggest going here unless you would like to throw your money away. We ended up eating somewhere else later in the night. Food was dry and very cheap. Wish I could give it no stars. I... More

I have to say I did enjoy the Harrah's forest buffet, the food was good NOT GREAT. The biggest problem I had was the massive price. When you have 4 small children that together don't eat as much as 1 adult, to pay so much is quite hard on the family budget. We were well over $100.00, I feel that... More

We have dined here many times but were disappointed tonight. Usually we try to arrive when the buffet opens. Tonight we arrived in line at 7:30 PM and were not seated until about 7:50PM. We were not perturbed by the wait since we expected that there would be a long line. Since the buffet closed at 9:00PM, we thought we... More
