Great view from the top floor at Harrah's. I have been here a couple of times with a friend who has a cabin in South Lake Tahoe. We get a discount with his "local" card. It still costs about $16 per person. This may be...More

The Forest buffet is at the top of Harrahs. Try to get a table by the window as it gives a nice view. The buffet is sort of standard and not gourmet. It has many choices. Cost was $53 for two people.

Decent buffet, salad bar, chinese food station, crab legs, italian station, ribs, potatoes, pizza, etc. I did enjoy their dessert bar. You can order cocktails for an additional price. Nice view

My previous review, from a year or so ago, indicated the variability at this facility. I had dinner here a few days ago, and it was marginal, at best. The hostess first offered me a window table (highly desirable), but then said none were available....More

At Harrah's Hotel on business and found this nice eatery on the 18th floor of the hotel. A lot to choose from, and while I opted for prime rib my work colleague worked the various selections over pretty well. We were both quite pleased with...More

I believe they have turkey and prime rib almost every night. Fridays are seafood night and the prices change. You can always ask to walk in a see what's being offered before you pay for dinner.
