One of the main attractions of Atlantic City’s casinos are the buffets, places where you can eat almost anything to your heart’s content at a slightly lower cost than in one of the major dining rooms. I recently had the opportunity to eat brunch at Harrah’s Waterfront Buffet as a guest of Harrah’s and Caesars Entertainment and enjoyed lots of great food all in one beautiful place.
The Waterfront Buffet at Harrah’s is a beautiful room. It is located next to the pool and carries on the palm tree/tropical décor. It’s very spacious with comfortable seating and really good coffee, not the kind you usually get in diners or buffets.
The service was superb. From our check-in cashier Robin (“Rockin’ Robin”), who took a few minutes out of her busy morning to explain the layout to us, to our phenomenal waitress Janet, who explained even more and gave recommendations along with quick, friendly service, everyone was delightful and ready to help.
Of course, the thing you come to a buffet for is a large choice of food. The Waterfront Buffet has that covered. The buffet is set up in a large circle. As this was brunch, they had a wonderful variety of both breakfast and lunch options.
There is a breakfast meat station with huge pots of very crisp bacon and a Philly stand-by, pork roll, among other things. There are several omelet stations where you can order your custom-made egg dish. There is even a steak station where you can get your steak grilled just as you like it.
If cereal is your thing, there are complete hot and cold cereal bars with all the trimmings. One of my favorite stops was the “House of Hash.” You fill your bowl with the chipped meat of your choice plus mix-ins and they cook it up for you right there.
If you’re interested in lunch, there are many choices,including a fairly complete Chinese station where you could get everything from fried rice to General Tso’s chicken.
The Waterfront is a sweet lover's dream. It seemed like a quarter of the circle is desserts. What was impressive, to me, was the sugar-free treats bar with five or six selections that actually tasted good.
