My wife and I decided to try the buffet. First let me say it is reasonably priced to begin with but then they subtract $5. if you have a players card. The food stations are nicely spread out which keeps things moving. Everything I tried...was top notch. Way above buffet style quality. The ribs are a must, the corn bread muffins best ever, raw bar ( oysters), salads to accompany your entre, so many foods you actually want to eat. Desserts...whoa! Save room or just over indulge. Great choices and many unique items. Only the creme brulee was lacking. Our waitress was always near by for drink refills and plate clearing. Even had little towelettes for your hands. My experience here surpasses the best buffet I had been to, Bellagio's, Vegas. When in the Orlando/Tampa area eat here.More

Since we were staying nearby we decided to visit the casino and get a nice dinner. When signing up for a casino card we were given $5.00 off each for the buffet!. There was a long line. We waited probably around 40 minutes to get...in. That's why I deducted one star. But it was very good food. A nice selection. I liked everything I tried. I got a chance to try a raw oyster and Cream Brulee which I have never had before. Pretty good. My husband loved the seafood medley of hot shrimp,mussels, and clams in a delicious sauce. We would come back again.More

My family loves this restaurant! We went here again this week and then we talk about how good it was for days and days. So many choices for everyone. Seating is very comfortable. Service is always great. We usually get in line a few minutes...before they open for lunch, they do tend to get crowded. My husband gives a shout out to the "crepe artist" at the dessert station. He had a made-to-order blueberry, strawberry, banana crepe that has enriched his life!!More

The buffet was huge, and none of the food stations were close to each other. Very difficult for someone with mobility issues. And since the stations weren't close by, we missed many of them. What food we did have was just so-so. Wait staff on...the other hand were excellent. We couldn't have asked for better service. On the weekend we had to pay extra for a 'champagne' buffet - even though we don't drink. That was certainly disappointing - and made the buffet price quite expensive. To us it definitely wasn't worth the price we had to pay. Since my husband didn't realize each of the stations was different and since it's very difficult for him to carry plates without dropping them on the way back to the table, he probably the maximum of about $5 worth of food. I at least had more than he did, but wasn't impressed with what I had. And since I don't do well getting food in a buffet while trying to walk with a cane, I didn't even attempt to go find out what all the stations had. Had they been closer to each other, I could have. As the title of this review said, I was very disappointed.More

Best deal in town. All kind of food you can eat. Not high quality but for $10 comp dollars that is the best deal. variety of desserts including ice cream. You can ask coffee (very good taste). Have oyster, clams, and shrimp. Fried chicken (like...KFC), roast beef, pizza, calzone, pasta, fruits, cole slaw. You can order extra steak and lobster around $12 extra each.More

This was our first visit to Hard Rock Hotel and one of the main things we were looking forward to was a fantastic buffet. The Harvest is a set up nicely and servers are nice...however, the food is just not good. We tried almost everything.....the best area was dessert. The Mongolian station uses pre cooked beef.. which tastes funky. The pasta bar clearly uses pre frozen meatballs.. which were not beef.. im guessing they were a mixture of mystery meats. I will say the the grilled salmon was pretty good. The Brussel sprouts were way under cooked and flavorless. Brocolli was ok. My husband said the fried chicken was ok. I tried the pizza.. and let me just say i love all pizza, but this just wasnt that good.. i took 2 bites and left it. We wasted so much food..which isnt like us.. it just wasnt good.. Do yourselves a favor, and hit up Golden Corral, if you're wanting a buffet..thisnplace just isnt worth the $32 (we paid $64, which included tax and a $10 tip). If Hard rock is trying to replicate the Las Vegas buffets...they have a LOT of work to do!More
