This restaurant is not bad, if you set low expectations. If you just need to fill your belly while you're gambling, etc, then it should be fine for you. If you're expecting a fine dining experience, then try something else.

Limited hours and small menu but tasty food within reason pricing. Service is average. Offers weekend and daily menu depending on day-both the same with different pricing.

Pretty unremarkable spot for AM breakfast. Not cheap with limited menu offerings. One morning, the coffee was nothing but brown colored water totally lacking any flavor. Hard to understand what with the buffet serving up one of the best cups on the planet. Wait to get a table can be an issue if your timing isn't ideal. Decent omlettes, though... More

I have noticed a trend in Harrah's increasing their price while not increasing the quality of the food. Add to that the fact the restaurant closed at 5 p.m. - not the best experience

We've found this restaurant several times when staying at other hotels nearby as this one seems to stay open the latest. Recommended when you need a late-night food fix!

3 of us went for breakfast and walked away stuffed. The portions are exceptionally large and the service was great, hot coffee, and constantly being checked on. Give it a try!

It's the Wandering Yank here. On a recent with a couple of old friends, after a show we were looking for dinner at Harrah's, nothing fancy, and we found this. Good choice! Why, you ask? Prompt and friendly service, bright and pleasant surroundings (lots of trees...), pretty good food (ribeye steaks and prime rib for us), and very reasonable prices... More

The service and food has declined over the years, just like the hotel itself. I remember when the place first opened and how nice it use to be, but now it is so different. I felt sorry for the 60 year old woman serving us. It's not her fault, but she had too many tables and it seemed like she... More

The breakfast menu is now only about 6 choices and way overpriced. I wanted some breakfast but only got a sample of breakfast as the menu now is just one page and has all 3 meals on it. I gave an extra star to my rating as the coffee was amazing!
