We dined here twice as part of a whole hard rock experience. First night service was very disappointing and made for a very bad experience, however gave it a second go the next night and got a much better experience. Food was fabulous though!! The one thing we didn't like was the smell of cigarette smoke coming from other tables.

While the food is good, you do not want to go here if you don't like loud music. We went on a Friday night and it was extremely loud due to the live music and the casino right outside the entrance. While we did not mind at all, we love good live music, those who aren't found of it would... More

Though the Staff were nice the service is very slow and when we were there they were not busy at all. I was disappointed but at least we got our drinks faster by sitting at the bar.

We ate on a Sunday night. There are no reservations at the Cafe, you just turn up and take your chances but we had no trouble being seated. The staff also space people out so you aren't all bunched up together. It was one of those places where patrons from other tables ended up talking to us, so it felt... More

Always great food at hard rock. Our waiter, Cullen, was wonderful! Very kind and attentive. Food was great, we had the fiesta Burger, Cobb salad, BBQ Burger and the jumbo appetizer. Everything was cooked well, and tasted great! Recommend to anyone!
