The Waterfront Buffet at Harrah's Casino in Atlantic City is amazing if you are a seafood lover. The Alaskan King crab legs are delicious and always plenty readily available. The shrimp are fresh and the Sushi Bar is pretty good as well. Lines are long but that is just a testament of how good it is and is worth waiting... More

Went on Friday night, no wait, but the whole experience was unimpressive. Service was ok but it seemed like everyone was just going through the motions. Check in desk was not very friendly, very little communication. Waitress was ok, but we had to ask for everything that we got from drinks to napkins. Food was good, but stations were slow... More

It is definitely an expensive meal, and the buffet is probably just a little more than an average buffet. They do have several food stations, the place is clean and spacious and the service is nice. But I'm just not sure it's worth this price. Nothing about the food offered really stands out as superb to me. But they do... More

When you're hungry, you don't want to wait for over an hour to be seated. Food was good. The only reason we went there was for the king crab. It's worth it!

We ate at this buffet before seeing a show. The tables were clean and the staff was friendly. We will go back when in town.

The food was excellent. Table service (beverages) was very slow. Cook staff all appeared to have English as a second language and getting answers to questions was impossible. They simply did not understand. Questions regarding gluten, sugar free offerings, and use of nuts or nut oil remain a mystery. The food was varied and everything my wife and I tried... More

I say second best to The Borgata buffet mostly because of the high price. Luckily I had the buy one get one free comp which brought the price down greatly. The buffet itself was excellent. Everything was cooked fresh for you at each station. The hot crab legs were amazing!!

Food was good, host was crabby, they rushed everyone in and then only gave us a short time to eat and cleaned up everything so did not get any good desserts.
