Elevated dining at Forest Buffet (Lake Tahoe, Nevada)


SMALL BITE: Of course, you have many dining options in Lake Tahoe. But probably the most iconic place to eat is at the Forest Buffet, located at the very-tippy-top of Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on the 18th floor. People go to the Forest Buffet for its legendary view – the most picturesque, panoramic view of Lake Tahoe anywhere through floor-to-ceiling glass windows that wrap around the dining area – and the incredible selection of freshly prepared food is simply a bonus.

SIGNATURE DISHES: Hand-carved meats, super-fresh sushi, crab legs, pizza hot out of a wood-fired oven, soups, pasta, chili, delectable veggies, an endless salad bar and a section of the restaurant devoted exclusively to desserts too many and too wonderful to count (including crepes made right before your very eyes).

DISH FROM DINERS:  “This is absolutely the best brunch in Lake Tahoe.”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:  Forest Buffet is continuously voted “Best Buffet” in the annual Best of Tahoe Reader’s Poll conducted by the Tahoe Daily Tribune. Be prepared to wait in line to be seated.

Saturday: 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m./4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Sunday: 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m./5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
