Last night my son and I decided to eat at the buffet, it's has been snowing nonstop so we couldn't see the view that much but I can't imagine on a sunny day it has to be beautiful, we paid $ 47 for both of us which I thought it was a rip off considering the selection was limited and... More

I was shocked by how well this buffet was run. Puts the Bellagio and Mirage Las Vegas to shame. If you aren't Total Rewards Platinum or higher (with a buffet line pass) you have to wait in a very long line. What is smart is that they take your info and call you when your turn comes up so you...

Harrah's has really got it's act together. The change from a few years ago is incredible. It's worth coming here just for the view alone, but the food was pretty good too. We came for the Champagne Brunch and there was plenty to eat for all of us - including those of us with dietary restrictions. The staff was helpful.... More

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

My wife and I stayed at Harrahs for our anniversary and decided to eat at the Forest Buffet. It was not an inexpensive buffet. They did have a large menu to choose from and the night we went the special was mexican. Most of the meal was okay but I had prime rib and pork loin. Both were dry and... 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
