After reading the reviews, we had mixed feelings about going to this buffet -- but decided to after realizing that we couldn't agree on a type of food to eat. At a buffet, we'd have lots of choices. $25.99 each later, we were seated by...More

After a wonderful time in Minden, Nevada, we stopped at the Harrah's hotel to have lunch at the Forest Buffet at the top of the hotel. There was an enormous amount of yummy food. We were able to enjoy the view while having our brunch.

Really nice buffet with a big variety ranging from Asian, to Italian, to Mediterranean, and American foods. Really appreciated the salad bar as well. Dessert was also amazing with LOTS of choices.

We have been going to this buffet for years! It used to be great but has gone downhill. The buffet was around $35 a person. Alcohol was extra. The view is beautiful, but the food needs improvement. It was seafood night so there was crab...More

I have been to the forest buffet many times in my life and always enjoyed it. It used to have a very romantic and elegant atmosphere. Having not been there in over 12 years, I was really looking forward to it! I really built it...More
