The buffet is huge and includes A salad bar w/raw oysters, muscles and steamed shrimp. The entree buffet included a Chinese, Thai, American Comfort and Italian food. Huge dessert bar including French crepes made while you waited. Our server was pleasant and kept our drinks full and the table clean of dirty dishes.

Plenty of food options for every taste and desire. The salad and chilled seafood stations and the soups were among the best. The carving station and (often dried out) meat and fish entrees were among the poorest. Italian (lasagna and ravioli and pizza) were commendable. Asian was a mixed bag, be sure to sample before loading up. BBQ pork, rib... More

The Chef's Stage is a full service, Las Vegas style budget with various fresh coupling/carving stations. They have something for everyone and most everything is excellent. The staffed are super and very helpful. The desserts are wonderful. Go easy on the salad - which is great. The entres are exceptional. It is rather pricy if you're not one to pack... More

This buffet appeals to all ethnicities. Salads and toppings are great and the desserts are yummy. Big bang for your bucks. Servers are very friendly.

They have several types of foods offered, seafood, Italian, Japanese, American and others. Start out very hungry you will get enough to eat ! All the food is excellent. The prices are expensive so sit back and enjoy every bite. Very good buffet.

Ok, if you want to pay $25 for a buffet, this is your place. But the food is mediocre at best and most of it was very unhealthy. There was a lot of variety and a lot of it looked good, but from a flavor standpoint, most was disappointing. There are several other restaurants in the casino like Johnny Rockets,... More

Show up early because this place gets packed on Turkey Day. Kind of ironic at an indian casino but it does get packed. We waited in line for over an hour but it was worth it. Not cheap but it was better than cooking at home. Moral to the story is yiu need to make a reservation to have Thanksgiving... More

Everything in the area closes up by 9 pm. When you're hungry your options are limited. Harrah's is the only location we could find dinner at 10 pm after taking in a movie. Glad we found it. One of the best buffets we have experienced. A bit pricey, but we were hungry. Huddle House just doesn't cut it.

Very good, but very expensive. Nice variety. Drinks were very expensive on top of the meal price. Not family oriented for sure.

Chef's Stage has numerous varieties of food - BBQ, Southern, Italian, Oriental, and Dessert, to name a few. The restaurants layout is open and easy to maneuver as you make your way through each different section. Comfortable seating and helpful and attentive staff make for a pleasant meal experience.
