Waterfront Buffet at Harrah's Resort

Waterfront Buffet - Harrah's Resort Foodie Experience

We enjoy staying at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City, NJ. It is a beautiful casino overlooking the marina with plenty of excellent dining options. The food selection at the Waterfront Buffet at Harrah's Resort is great featuring 9 stations such as Italian, Asian and American. Each time, we ate different things and the service was excellent and everything yummy. What follows is the food we tasted (many times in small bites to try as much as possible) in three visits, twice for dinner and once for lunch during our three-day stay.

Sophia's plate - pizza, Italian meatball, mashed potatoes, chicken leg, salad...
The salad bar is divine and features many types of salad greens, a raw vegetable bar with broccoli, mushrooms, beets, carrots, radish, cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, and much more. The Jersey tomatoes with balsamic vinegar were sweet, juicy and the balsamic vinegar really brought out the flavor. You can custom order a salad as well.

Allen's plate - Lobster mac and cheese, chicken legs, steak, mashed potatoes and gravy
Allen's Pizza and Pasta Shells
I did not try any seafood but Allen enjoyed the freshness of the raw oysters and clams on the half shell with a squeeze of lemon and cocktail sauce, and some chilled shrimp too. At the sushi station, a chef makes sushi right at the station and works fast. We both had California rolls and vegetable rolls with fresh wasabi and soy sauce and they were so good.

The collard greens had a Smokey taste and paired great with the brisket chili. We both had a fried chicken leg and the seasoning and batter were perfection. The mashed potatoes were rich and creamy and went great with the roasted prime rib topped with horseradish. The flame-broiled steak is made to order and had great flavor. The rich and creamy lobster mac and cheese was so good and had just the right amount of lobster meat.

Asian Station
Quesadillas and Soft Fish Tacos
The Italian station offers a nice selection of artisan pizza. The chef makes the dough and pizza right at the station and it was cool to watch. The pizza with (no bean) chili and cheese was so tasty, as well as the basil with red onions and white cheese pizza. The stuffed shells were oozing with cheesy goodness and the Italian meatballs were tender and bursting with flavor. I tried the garlic bread and it was crispy yet buttery and so good!

Making Doughnuts

The guacamole was fresh, and the yummy quesadilla was filled with sautéed onions, peppers and cheese. The steamed Chicken dumplings with scallions and soy sauce were great. The Chinese broccoli with garlic tasted so good and the fried rice, Mongolian beef with red peppers and green beans were excellent.

Chocolate cake, red velvet cake, tiramisu tart and cherry tart
When we went for lunch, Allen had an omelet made to order with ham, bacon, mushrooms, bell peppers, freshly diced tomatoes and Swiss cheese. The sliders were flame-broiled beef with melted cheese, caramelized onions and held together with a spicy pickled pepper on a stick. A slider lovers dream!

Red velvet cake
Each night, we enjoyed several desserts. The doughnuts are made at the dessert station. Allen had a powdered one and his favorite was the cinnamon sugar. Both were light and fluffy. The fresh, warm and soft white chocolate cookie was fabulous. The chocolate cake, cherry tart, tiramisu tart, chocolate tart, rich brownie and moist red velvet cake were all delightful.
