Saturday night crab and seafood buffet. Good selection of meat and seafood. They open at 5 so we arrived at 4:45. Waited in line for one hour. We had two free tickets otherwise we would not have come. $37.99 per person seems a little bit high. Still a long line when we left at 7

We have been going to The Forest Buffet at Harrahs for years. Many years ago it was great. Over the years it has steadily declined. We recently were there after not going for a couple of years. We paid $53 including tax for 2 buffet dinners. There is quite a large selection to choose from, however, the quality is so... More

Fish was tasteless, rost was stringy and fatty. The sushi looked awful. This was the worst meal I have ever had here. I will give them another try but this was a big disappointment. The table staff were nice and dining room was clean.

This buffet was pretty tasty, but beware the long lines if you do not have a platinum or higher harrahs player card. The food was good, but the buffet was pretty messy, not tended all that well. They were out of plates at one point too. The servers were great.We went on seafood Friday and steak and seafood Saturday. The... More

This buffet used to be better. The carving station beef was dry and tough. The selection seems limited for such a big buffet. I liked the Asian chicken wings and pork ribs.

It's not the best food, but it's decent. The service was pretty good. They refilled drinks quickly. There is a variety of food. Kids liked the pizza. If you have a diamond or higher card, I'd be more prone to eat here because there was a $6 discount, and we had a shorter line. Big difference. I wouldn't wait 30+... More

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
