Casino food, but nice little cafe with an outdoor ambiance. Food was quickly prepared, served hot, not necessarily a 4 star, but not as bad as some reviewers have stated. In the basement of the casino, so unfortunately you have to walk through the smoke to get there. For a quick bite not a bad place to try.

We went there for breakfast Sept 28th and can honestly say it was by far the worst breakfast I have had in years (5 plus or more). I had some Bacon Skillet thing except there was no bacon (and I confirmed with the waitress it was meant to be that) and the "egg" thingy was served over heart attach ( greasy) hash browns. My wife started hers but just left it and ate the toast. It was disgusting.

In fairness to them they did refund the $31 they were going to charge us but sadly that did not stop the fact that the vile food they served wanted to escape all day and pretty well spoiled that day for us.

Avoid the place if you can- highly not recommended

The American River looks nice, but the food is not good. If you are staying at Harvey's or Harrah's go to Cabo Wabo instead, or leave the property.

In spending 4 days at Harrahs, we ate at the American Rive cafe 6 times, that means breakfast everyday, lunch twice, and once in e early morning after having gambled way too late.
The food is always clean, and the presentation is always perfect. My wife loves the hot turkey sandwich, and you can't go wrong with their club either. Breakfast favorites are Joes scramble, and steak & eggs.
This place rocks, and we always make a stop here every time we are in South Lake.

We visited here twice in our stay in Lake Tahoe and it is a pleasant atmosphere with friendly wait staff. Very good value for money. Definately more of a cafe than an upmarket restaurant. Would return.
