First, forgo the buffet at the casino. It is not worth the money and the variety has decreased over the past two years. Go to the Hard Rock Cafe instead. It is a little noisy due to the non stop music (both live and taped), if live music is not your thing while you eat ask to sit far away... More

Ok, it is a HRC restaurant, serving HRC food and beverages, so nobody can be surprised by the food, but: quality of everything is high, place has a soul, is located in the hearth of Hard Rock Casino - what more could be needed?

Overall, I give it a B-. The wait wasn't too horrible for a Saturday night. The food was pretty good and the service was excellent. I would go back!

The food is a little pricey and not exceptional. The alcoholic beverages are very pricey. The music is loud making it difficult to carry on a conversation, but I guess that's typical of the Hard Rock Cafes.

Served me raw salmon... dads burger cold. Sent back. Server returns with 2 burgers for wrong table... advised I ordered salmon. Came back out with burger and salmon.... burger still cold. They say this place is for high rollers what a joke. Will not return to the hard rock.

The open spaces make the restaurant a tad noisy, however the atmosphere and rock memorabilia make up for that. Service was timely and friendly. We shared a steak fajitas platter and it was quite good. Real steak! A bit too chunky though, they should cut it into thin strips for this dish. Prices were moderate.

Overpriced and more of a burger and fries joint, unlike other Hard Rock I've been to. The music is loud, so don't expect much conversation.

This is a continuation of my review of the restaurant as I did not review the shop in December. Bebett provided great customer service as I added to my pin collection. The number of pin choices was not outstanding, but the service and the overall experience was.

The salmon was very juicy. The sizzling fajitas was perfect and the honey chicken was excellent. Little surprised that they don't have all the beers available during the week they had a very limited supply at such a humongous hard rock. You'll enjoy it. It's attached to the hard rock Casino which by the way does not have life we... More
