This was our first time eating at Harrahs. The food on the buffet was very good. Our server was excellent. I can't recall her name but she was from Port St Lucy. We will be back the next time we are in the area.

Kind of expensive, 28$ each. Our server James was top notch!! He was great. There is tons of variety at this buffet and the food was quite good. I do feel like it could have been warmer though. Some of the stations had overcooked food (hamburgers and hotdogs) which made it unappetizing.I do love the fact that they had gelato.... More

Chefs Stage buffet is the biggest buffet I've ever seen. It has individual areas serving Italian, Seafood, Asian, Grilled, Barbecue, Mexican, and Dessert (and probably a couple of areas I haven't found yet) where each individual area is the size of the typical buffet. The quality of the food ranges from good to very good but the really exceptional aspect... More

It was $68 for two people. For this price I am expecting top quality food. Instead we got poor quality food. Everything was over cooked, dried out and cold. This might have been the worst buffet I have ever had in my life. If it was $10 a person it might have been OK but not $34 a person. Steer... More

Food is over cooked, desserts are dry and old, service is horrible. One of the worst buffets we have experienced. If this is food by a chef then I will stick with being a cook. The meats were over cooked, the breads were stale, the desserts were old, the ice cream was guarded like it was gold. After tolerating the... More

Nothing to dislike. If you don't like the way an item is cooked find something else you like sooooooooooooo much to choose from!

Got in the long line that as we came up the elevators and waited almost 30 minutes only to find out that the line was for Diamond status people only. Not clearly marked at all! Would have been nice if there was a sign or a staff member at the start of the line. Customers coming said the restaurant was... More

So...the buffet experience is part of any good Casino weekend. You just have to do it! Chef's Stage has a great atmosphere an lots of variety. Southern, Asian, Italian, Mexican...you name it. The food quality is average...endless shrimp, but they are very small shrimp. Variety of Asian foods, but the sushi bar was closed when we were there. Ample desserts,... More
