My waitress must not be a morning person. Why therefore is she working the morning shift? I don't know. She brought my food, but just kind of disappeared with few tables in the restaurant at this early hour. She seemed a bit hostile, for some unknown reason.

The food... I had the All-American breakfast. Potatoes = good, scrambled eggs = good, toast = alright, and bacon = pathetic, thin and flavorless. And only three slices today, whereas the breakfast came with four earlier in the week. And if you're asking why return if I wasn't satisfied on my first visit, because there aren't many early options in the vicinity.

Chicken and waffles, and blueberry pancakes were delicious. My 5 year son and I ate breakfast for $42. It was reasonably princed, upstairs food places called Burgers n hops priced slightly less. Waleska was a great waitress! I highly recommend the Hard Rock Cafe.

We ordered a Filet Mignon dinner. We asked for bread. They said they had no bread. Spending $40 for an entree and no bread?

They pride themselves in their steaks, but do not know the proper way to cook them (ie: medium-well is not medium-rare).

Fair breakfast this morning. I had bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, and potatoes. The scrambled eggs and potatoes were good. The bacon was paper-thin and scrawny. What a rip-off! I hate when restaurants pull this cost-cutting move. This would have been easier to take if the meal wasn't over-priced to begin with, let alone an especially poor value considering the thrifty quality of the bacon. Service was good. Ambience is a bit too loud, but I guess it is the Hard Rock.

Hard Rock Cafe is a nice place to get a decent meal. I was with a party of 5 and we all had the Cowboy steak and added shrimp. No complaints it was very good. I would definitely recommend this place. They also have awesome Nachos. If you like that. Give it a try.

Dinner, drinks and service was great!

Breakfast the next day was a little challenging. Your breakfast menu was not gluten free friendly as your dinner menu was. Not a big selection of choices.
Some of the food came out cold.

I've had a lot of cheeseburgers in my lifetime, but the one I ate at Hard Rock Cafe, Atlantic City, NJ was the best burger I've ever tasted. It was called the Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger. A+++++!!!!!

The server took forever to even acknowledge we were even there . About 15 minutes after we ordered our drinks a second server came up said did you guys even check in with the host and I said yes order drinks we've been waiting while for them. she said okay we just changed shifts we wanted to make sure that you actually checked in. I would say it probably took at least 25 minutes just to get the drinks. the second server that approached us came back to the table saying I'm going to be your server now. She said we just put your wings and you should be getting them soon. mind you it was already 25 minutes since we had already ordered because we ordered the wings with our drinks. it seemed like the servers were busy with really big table so they didn't really care about the tables literally had two customers. My burger was mediocre. there was a group of young adults screaming really loud about the football game behind us but we were in the regular dining area not the bar. I feel as though the staff should have said something to them being that they were not in the bar where all the other rowdy people were and where is more acceptable. I will never go back there again.

My husband and I visited Hard Rock cafe before attending a concert on Saturday. Although we'd waited for someone to come to our table, when I asked one of the servers who our table's server was, he was very accomodating. He actually took care of our order and was very pleasant. His name may have been Dom but I can't really remember. The managers were apologetic and very pleasant. Overall, great experience. We can't wait to go back to the hotel and restaurant.

I was disappointed, I book the reservation so we would be in the dinning area. Instead we were seated at the back in wooden chairs. When I said we wanted the dinning area, I was told that is where we were assigned. I was not told that I would be sitting there when I made the reservation.
When I went to the ladies room I saw so many empty tables and was surprised that they did not accommodate us. We were dressed nice too. Very disappointed, and I have eaten there many times and this one was bad.

Flat bread appetizer was delicious. Their take on a Cobb salad was different and delicious. Award winning burger...not so much. Have had better. Room was set all the way at the back and thought there would be booths or cool seating. Nope. Room was open and filled with uncomfortable patio style furniture. Kind of pricey too. 1 app, 1 salad, 1 burger, No drinks=Around $60 w/t&t. Meh. Will try another place next time.

Food wasn’t bad, but wasn’t great neither. Appetizer nachos were a little soggy and the Southwest spring rolls were tiny. The main courses were on the level of any restaurant near a mall. The staff was attentive and friendly and the cocktails were delicious. Overall, I wouldn’t eat there again, but I would stop in the bar for a couple drinks instead.

Food was just normal run of the mill...over priced, but most food in a casino is..Southwest egg rolls were pencil then...twisted and Mac cheese had ok flavor, but only about. 1/2 of a small chicken breast in it...not impressed

Food was alright. The chefs messed up both my appetizers and my burger order three times. We were given 50% off which was very nice of them but the whole situation was extremely frustrating. I spoke to a friend who’s been to the restaurant and they said when they came their order was messed up as well. Something in the kitchen is not working and they better figure it out. Burgers are not worth $12 at all. Quite frankly I could make a better one at home.
