The buffet at Harrahs was really amazing. Sushi was very fresh and was being made in front of us. All the meats were tender and really had no complaints. They also have an incredible desert section

It would be nice to have warm shrimp somewhere on the buffet as an option rather than only the peel and eat cold shrimp. There was a good selection for brunch. This has improved greatly in the last year.

Great adult buffet, but a little expensive for children. But even so the kids enjoyed the deserts with the cotton candy.

I love the buffet. I took my oldest son for the first time and was holding his plate not knowing what he wanted first. So many choices for a good price.

My last visit was great. I love their buffet and I had no issues with service! The last time I spent the night the rooms were great, and the pool/entertainment area outside exceptional complete with a lazy river.
