    Came to the casino for the first time Easter Sunday for the buffet, it was so amazing, my daughter made reservations for The Mother’s Day buffet immediately! Fantastic food and service, can’t wait until we go back!

    The overall experience was awesome. Had a reservation, hostess seated us immediately after paying. Love the entire concept, you don't fix your own plates. It was never a line to get food. Food was delicious and hot.

    One of the best buffets I’ve experienced. That’s pretty high praise considering I’ve been to dozens of them in Las Vegas over the past 20 years. The ownership has obviously placed a lot of emphasis on food presentation, taste and service. Everything I had was fresh, served cheerfully (yes, it was a buffet however, all selections were plated by a server and then handed to you) and all tasted wonderful. The dining and serving area received constant attention by the staff for cleanliness and appearance. The server/wait staff were personable and went the extra mile to enhance the experience. We will definitely be back.

    Probably best to tip after you eat instead when you pay so they have to work for their trip. Waitress didn't refill my drink

    lot of foods had empty containers and help should have got to them before they were totally empty. (I have a catering business) Once I went up for more food and there was no one in 3 stations to help so I left. I will never go back at 5pm on thursdays that has never happened before.

    Understanding the need for employees is taken into consideration. Given that it seemed that it took an awfully long time to get a server for food.

    We did like that you told severs what you wanted and they dished it out and handed it to you. That is one thing I don't like about buffet everyone getting it themself. If you keep it so no one else can touch the food and the price dosen't go any higher the $20 might eat there more

    They were out of Shrimp, fish and burgers, from the night before. no notice of this....$80 later...not satisfied. Contacted Gun Lake to inquire as to why no notice of advertised Shrimp and such...no answer. We are frequent visitors to GLC...and have not had this problem before...jsut wish we would have been notified prior to coming out of pocket.

    This is our second visit to this location. The food wasn't as good as the first visit, however, it was still very good. The food servers, behind the glass, could do a better job of placing the food in the plates. To have food hanging off the plates shows little regard for the customer. The table service was fine. It's a buffet so to ask the customers, at the time of check out, if we want to provide an 18 - 20% tip is somewhat uncomfortable. Overall, a good meal and we look forward to our next visit.

    The buffet was not as I had hoped. The food was not very tasty and it not a lot of selection. This was a celebration dinner for my birthday and to say the least, I was not impressed.

    As a whole our experience was very good. The staff was kind patient and polite. Remember, like in all other business, there is a staff shortage at the Harvest Buffet. Please be patient and understanding when you need something. To us it was very obvious the employees are doing the best they can to serve us. (I don’t not work here. I just enjoy eating the variety of well prepared food)
