“An average buffet and service experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

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 for this location is the view. Located high in the building it has great views of the town and lake.

“Dinner at Forest Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

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.

“overpriced. ....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

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. Then, you just help youself to food at the buffet. They did have prime rib, chicken, salmon, crab legs, pasta's, salads and lots more including a good desert choice. The quality in the main was ok, but for the price, $29.95, I expected better. Afterall, there is only so much one can eat! Would I eat there again...no.
