I have eaten at this buffet many times, last week may be my final visit. It has steadily gone down hill the last year. The rib roast was so dry and tough I could even cut it to taste it, I tried just about everything...More

We hadn't been back to Forest Buffet in over a year so it was time to give it another try. First tip, get there early, or be prepared to wait in a long line. It was Italian night so lots of pasta dishes were featured....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.

Been coming here for over 60 years. The view, if you get right side by window is fantastic. The prime rib first class as is roast turkey. But the rest is nothing special. Chinese entre average. Dessert same. Selection of items fewer. Didn't seem like...More

For people who frequent Las Vegas casino buffets this is familiar territory. (Basic buffet, not high-end casinos.). You can save a few dollars with your players card. The restaurants at Harrah's were operating on limited schedules at the beginning of June so buffet was dinner...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.
