    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe Exterior Decor

    Foodnut has a thing for high end buffets.. The Forest Buffet at Harrahs Lake Tahoe has been in existence for decades and is practically a Lake Tahoe institution. We remember coming here as kids and have returned to see how this buffet compares to the best around, especially after a long day of biking. Our last visit was in the summer of 2013.

    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe View

    Located on the 18th floor, this restaurant features an amazing view. Try to get seated by the Western facing windows. Former archrival and now a sister property, Harvey’s across the street, no longer has a buffet. Mont Bleu next-door has a small “un-buffet”.

    Decor, Vibe – Forest Buffet at Harrahs Lake Tahoe has upgraded decor with modern looking stations, nice wooden chairs and tables, and colorful accents and sayings. The restaurant was fairly full early on a Saturday night. They do not take reservations, so lines can arise during peak times with all the tourists in town.

    Forest Buffet Picks:

    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe pizza

    Pizza and garlic stick quality was surprisingly strong, as was the roast pork loin.

    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe King crab

    King crab quality was decent with lots of legs available.

    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe sushi rolls

    Sushi roll quality was good.

    Baked potato bar and soup selection, and quality were passable.

    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe desserts

    Desserts are their strong suit with a huge selection of tarts, puffs, cakes, pies, made to order crepes, and soft serve.

    OK:

    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe bacon wrapped filet mignon

    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe prime rib

    Bacon wrapped filet mignon and prime rib was average. On another occasion the turkey was edible.

    Forest Buffet Harrahs Lake Tahoe Asian food

    Salads were average as were most of the Asian dishes. Pork buns were surprisingly solid. Another time the lotus wrapped rice was over steamed.

    Pans:
    Ribs, fajitas, fried chicken, onion rings were forgettable. Ham was too salty.

    Service – Forest Buffet at Harrahs Lake Tahoe is pretty much taking your drink order, refilling drinks, and taking plates away. Service was adequate but not as good as the best buffets.

    Value – Prices are typical for a buffet of this caliber, gone are the days of $9.95 buffets. At $19.95, it is hard to beat. Think of it as a good dessert buffet.

    Verdict РForest Buffet at Harrahs Lake Tahoe is the main buffet in town and surpassed our low expectations. The buffet does get pretty low marks on Yelp. This is an average buffet with good selection, that is outclassed by the big boys in Vegas like the Wynn Buffet. Moonstar in Daly City costs about the same and has better quality food.  Conrad in Hong Kong is currently our ultimate buffet.
