If you are thinking of eating here, don't do it. Go to the Borgata. This place looks really cool from the outside. The decor is appealing and while you wait in line you think you are about to have a fun dining experience. The food is very unappealing and the service is no better. It's more like a glorified food... More

This was the first buffet I have been to in years. I must say the 45 minute wait in line was completely worth it . I ate like a pig everything was on par I will be back again

Okay, so let me start out by saying that I am a high school teacher, which is the only reason I have this much time on my hands in July to write this long-winded review about the buffet at Harrahs in Atlantic City. I have been coming here for many years and I am generally always pleased with the food... More

I usually end up waiting in line 30 - 45 minutes. This time, we were late and we were seated 15 minutes after normal closing time. We were told we would have 45 minutes from the time the last person was seated, and they held to that. I would normally rate this a five, but 45 minutes is not enough... More

Went last weekend and had dinner at the buffet. In my opinion, this is the best buffet in Atlantic City. All of the food was hot, fresh, and tasty. It wasn't the type of buffet that has food laying under heat lamps for an hour. I sampled a lot of the food (tacos, roast beef, turkey, pasta, salad, sushi, shrimp,... More

Well the wait gets a little crazy. But once you are in... you have a dozen different styles of food freshly prepared for you. From chinese, italian, seafood, vegan, and simple pizzas to the freshly made sushi it's fairly complete. The salad bar needs a revamp though, actually it was a little basic and almost pathetic! The staff were excellent... More

Every Harrahs stay includes a trip to the Waterfront Buffet. There are many choices such as the standard carving station but this buffet also a pasta station where you basically choose the type of pasta,sauce,herbs and protein for your custom dish that is prepared for you.

You want something different, this buffet has it all. If you are into seafood you have to try the salmon, grill right in front of your eyes. The crab legs are also one of the main reason I love this buffet. You can have your steak cook the way you like it. The craving station has a variety to choose... More
