While looking for a place to have breakfast while staying at Harveys Casino, we were told about the American River Cafe. Hidden in the lower level of Harrahs, it serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We arrived at 9:30 and were quickly seated. Very good menu...More

American River Cafe is one of the best options for breakfast near stateline. I've been here numerous times and the service as well as the food are always great. I've never been disappointed by the Chicken Fried Steak and eggs.

Used to count on the Café for grabbing a sit down meal when at Harrah's. The room has plastic sheeting for some planned remodeling of the far side of room. The hours were limited with a 5 p.m. closing time. Very few patrons in early...More

One of the few breakfast options available in Harrah's Casino & Resort. Nice selection, a tad pricey and average service.

The American River Café has always been our choice for our breakfast during our stays in Tahoe. Unfortunately this last visit they were under construction for remodeling which was noisy. The last few years they've also had a very limited menu as well as hours....More
