It doesn't matter if you are a vegan, on a diet, or looking for comfort foods (or all of the above!!!), Chef's Stage Buffet has it all. It's really good food, really fresh and presented in a very appetizing way. If I am going to Harrah's. I am making time for the Chef's Buffet!!!

The service was great all around. All the food looked inviting. The fried shrimp was only ok. The fried oysters were good. The mashed potatoes tasted artificial. It was really not worth the $32.00 paid.

Treated myself to dinner here and was amazed at the variety of foods to choose from. I only wish my stomach could have held a lot more. What I chose was basic home cooking, but it was super delicious. And so many desserts to choose from. A little expensive, but sure was good!!

We had our 7 year old son with us and we loved the pizza, fried chicken and the wide range of dessert choices. Expensive but all you can eat to keep in mind! The sushi was excellent as well!

We ate at Chefs Stage in the casino on Sunday. We enjoyed it a lot more than on our last visit. Service was good and I ate prime rib after a big salad.My husband had fried oysters and shrimp. He said they were ok but he really enjoyed the dessert selections.

Buffet is located upstairs of the Casino, only open for dinner weekdays and at 1pm on sundays. Sunday Seafood Buffet was not worth the extra money, no crablegs, had oysters fried and raw, shrimp both steamed and fried and mussels with different preps. The food is very attractive on display, usually fresh but average on taste. Service is usually very... More

I start with the peel and eat shrimp first. Salad of my choice next and then so many main meal choices! My favorite dessert is hot fudge sundae but I am not past sneaking in a slice of lemon meringue pie,
