Came here on a Saturday night. It was seafood and steak night for $30 something per person (I forgot). Was quite disappointed with the selection. For seafood the options were just shrimp cocktail and snow crab legs (hot or cold). For steak, they had prime rib and made to order steak. The snow crab legs were dry and appeared as... More

Regular price is $22 ... $3 off for premium members. Buy 1, get 1 if you can find a deal. It's a good deal at BOGO. Full price, I would be upset. The carving station is where you get your money's worth. The shrimp was quite excellent as well. The other food I tried was mediocre at best: - ribs... More

On an evening in Stateline, we dined at the Forest Buffet on the 18th floor of Harrah's. The view is amazing, especially as we sat down at sunset. The service was very good, as the staff was on top of everything throughout our meal. But I was disappointed with the buffet. It was Tex-Mex night, so there were a number... More

This is always the best buffet at the Tahoe Casinos. There is a broad selection of food, so you can find something appealing. Stay away from the sushi, but the rest is fine. The deserts are especially good

On the 18th floor. Seafood buffet $10 higher. View Fair. Over the years the selection and Quality seems to have declined. The desert Bar is still in great shape

It was an Italian night. No caprese salad?? We thought it was expensive for what they offer. Many of the hostess have an attitude. Our server, Rafael, was amazing. The food was just average.
