This is the best buffet offered in S. Lake Tahoe. There are two others in the area but this one offers the best meal.

We have visited twice this past year and the offering is good. Sushi rolls, Prime Rib, soups, salads and great desserts.

It is expensive, but if you are local you can get a discounted price Mon.-Fri. The first visit was great and the second trip lost a little of its luster. We dined here with 2 adults and 2 kids.

I am a local, so I have taken advantage of the "local discount card" (Thank you Harrah's). For starters the manager, Frank, has an outstanding customer service talent. He does NOT sit in an office and punches away stats and works on reports ... no every time I've been up at the Forest Buffet, Frank was there facilitating the seating and welcoming "his" patrons. GREAT customer service Frank! The staff is likewise very attentive and cordial. The buffet offerings from Sushi, to soups and salads, chicken, prime rib, fish and on and on is usually the same with little variety, but at least when you get there you know what you're getting and it is always well presented, freshly made and hot and the staff goes out of their way to accommodate special requests (I like to butterfly my meat). The dessert section is, needless to say a treat for both your eyes and your taste buds. I've been at the Forest buffet at least 10 times in the past year and would not have returned had it not been for the pleasant and repeatedly good experiences.

You might get the same view at the adjacent Friday's Station; for the same money or maybe a bit more. but skip the line, and not feel stuffed. I understand Friday is seafood, Sat is steak/seafood so the line might be longer then.

Dessert is their stronger suit. Soda/coffee included with meal.
