Within the casino/hotel complex. Limited menu....typical bar menu. Visited in Oct and still had Covid procedures in place. Service was ok..could have been better. Food was average. Good place to stop for a quick drink, appetizer, or lunch if you have been to the casino.

Hard Rock Cafe @ Seminole Tampa offers some of THEE best BBQ Ribs in Florida. We'll pick some up after gaming and take them home. The amount they give you for $24 will generally cover dinner and lunch the next day. They throw in fries...and coleslaw. G@@D STUFF!More

Two issues: 1. Waited 25 minutes for order to be delivered. This is not gourmet dinning, food should come out much faster. 2. Order NY Strip Steak, it was strangest looking strip steak I have ever had, All NY streaks are "strip" of steak pretty...consistent in width. This piece of meat (whatever it was) was small at one end and very large at the other. It was not tender and had a considerable amount of fat. I asked to talk to the manager, when he arrived I showed him the amount of fat, his comment instead of an attempt of apology was "so you do not like fat on your steak?". He then said he was going to talk to the kitchen never to be seen again.More

Awesome steak , everything was really good and I was really surprised. Usually tourist places as this, the food usually is not very good for the price. The food here was on point. Everything down to the coleslaw, fries, sweet tea and great service. Husband...had the bbq platter and he said he was good. We would definitely come. back and also hit up other Hard Rock CafesMore

Sat at the (socially distanced) bar, just for a few apps. Best nachos I’ve ever had! Loaded with chicken and generous toppings. Also had the very decadent mac’n’cheese, so worth it. Bartender made me customized martinis exactly to my liking and was super friendly and...attentiveMore

Took a group of friends to the boat show and decided to stop here on the way back to have a look around the casino and have a bite. Everyone's meal was good and the service was great. A bit pricey but I suppose that's...to be expected when there is live music and a big casino outside the door. Enjoyed it.More

Dreadful service on 3/4/20, if you spend $21 for a burger, at least i expect stellar service but it wasn’t the case. No plates, no silverware when food arrived, i had to get mayo/ketchup from the bar myself.

We decided to stop in the Hardrock Casino in Tampa and while there we stepped into the Hardrock cafe for a quick bite. The service was GREAT, the food was OK but what can you expect from a quick appetizer platter. Overall the experience was...a A+.More

We were at the casino Saturday night and decided to eat at Hard Rock Cafe. We were able to get seats at the bar and had a friendly server. We had drinks and the Jumbo Combo which was just enough food for us to share....All the items on the Jumbo Combo were yummy. There was a pretty good band playing while we were there too. I would recommend this place for live music and casual food.More
