    Food was cold, order was messed up. We came 2 years ago and had the same experience. Our waiter was very friendly, but the food was not cooked correctly, took a long time. They did try to make it right with a free app. Will not try again.

    Great service as always. The only thing that I notice a couple of times now is that you are understaffed. It took a bit for our server to come. There was plenty of open tables but not enough services to accommodate people who wanted to eat, they kept telling people there was a 35-45 min wait.

    Greeted poorly. Had reservations for 6pm and was told I still have 10 minutes , greeter was abrupt and not pleasant. Was ignored till someone else asked if we got a text. Once I told her we have been waiting with a 6pm reservation she seated us immediately. The bottle of wine we ordered turned out to not be available and were told we could order a higher priced wine instead. Manager would not honor the price for what we ordered on another bottle of wine. We were able to get several glasses of wine for the price of the bottle instead. It should be noted that the bottle was not in stock before we could order as they should have given us another bottle at the same price. Onion rings came out burnt and had to be redone. Food came out cold and had to be redone. This was not a pleasant experience and will NOT be going there again. I really should have not had to pay for such a horrible experience!!

    The food and service was pretty good. The food is not worth the prices established. You do need to figure out a backup system if your seating system goes down. Absolutely atrocious how seating and hosts were with this aspect. People were waiting over an hour and the operations manager running the host stanf seemed out of place and couldn't handle the issues.

    We had the pleasure of having Jessica as our attending waitress for the mornings of October 11, and 12. Jessica is an outstanding credit to your staff. She is attentive, friendly and assertive in her duties. For lunch on October our waitress was Naomi, and she is also an outstanding credit to your staff. She is attentive, friendly and assertive in her duties.

    Celebrated my sister’s 60th birthday. Was very busy for a Wednesday night, waitress was super , unfortunately I can’t recall her name. They announced my sisters birthday and everyone shouted Happy Birthday!! Great experience, the only downside was I was hoping to have my Hurricane in the official Har Rock style Hurricane glass and normally the fries are presented in the cone, however neither of those happened, we’ll chalk it up to the busyness of the Cafe. The original Hard Rock burger was superb!

    Hard Rock Cafe - Atlantic CityResponded on October 12, 2022Thank you for the review Cindy! I'm sorry to hear that you were unable to get a Hurricane glass on your last visit, but I'm glad everything else was to your liking!

    We were on vacation in Atlantic City, New Jersey. We had been to Atlantic City on a prior vacation and had been to the Hard Rock Casino, but not to the Hard Rock Cafe. On this trip we wanted to have a family dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. It took us two days to get a reservation. So needless to say, we were excited on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2022 to dine at the Hard Rock Cafe. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated after a short wait. Our waiter was Larry. This is when our unfortunate experience started. It took a while to order drinks, and Larry told us he would get our drinks and return to take our orders. Our drinks did not arrive, so after a while we called Larry over. He apologized and went to get our drinks. When Larry returned, he only had 2 drink orders. He left, and we assumed he was going to get the other drinks. However, after a while we had to wave down Larry and ask for the other drinks. We still had to wait for him to return to get meal orders. This occurred a second time while we were awaiting our food. 20 minutes later we hadn't received our meals, we had to wave Larry down again. He apologized and left the table. About 10 min later, one in our party received their meal order. Then about 5 minutes later, the second person received theirs, however the food was very dry and cold. Then we had to ask for the other 2 meal orders. The third was brought in about 10 minutes. We never got the fourth meal. It hadn't been ordered although it was on his order pad. We asked for manager. Her resolution was to order his meal. Then after calling her back over. She took the drink order from the bill. She offered to give us a comped meal at another time. What? We never want to go back there again. Who would? What an awful experience, and while on vacation.
