We enjoyed our dinner. The waitress was great, the food was great as is any Hard Rock Cafe. It’s a bit noisy because of the slot machines right next to the seating area but it’s a casino so it’s expected. Only downside is you can’t really hear the music playing in the restaurant.

Definitely advise making reservations if possible because the wait gets long here. We made reservations and there was some confusion at the hostess desk as to whether they accept reservations even though open table had the option. The hostess was very nice and called a manager to sort it out and the manager already knew my name, was apologetic for the confusion, and sat us within 5 minutes. Apparently the reservations are a new thing so if you make reservations I would definitely call to double check you really have them. Otherwise they can put you on a waiting list.

Ordered the ribs and Steak salad both were excellent
Rib order was huge, full rack of baby backs had to take 1/2 home
Steak on the steak salad was tender and cooked perfectly

Cheesecake was delicious

The service was terrible. There was almost no one there at all and it took more that 10 minutes for the waiter to come over for the first time. When they asked if we were ready to order and we indicated we wanted to put a drink order in and look over the menu the waiter replied, "ok ill be right back" and left for another 5 minutes.... at that point we got up and left. felt like we were being punked.

Good Atlantic City Restaurant Week experience. Classic Hard Rock Cheeseburger and rock music! Service was very good. Nice to see that Hard Rock Hotel and Casino has thoroughly rebuilt the old Taj Mahal into a first class Las Vegas style resort. Very stylish and clean! As we were leaving we got a White House sub to go. We’ll come back to the Hard Rock; it’s a bright light in Atlantic City :)

Food was outstanding. I got the tupelo chicken tenders and they were, by far, the best chicken tenders I've ever had in my life. Service was quick and efficient. Employees were kind. I had a great time and will be back!

My wife was attending a conference at the hotel and was told that she would run late. I tried to change the reservation from 6:30 to 7:00pm. I was told that there was nothing available for 2.5 hrs before or after my reservation. Oh well.
My wife left the conference early and we arrived at the desk at 6:20. We were told that we could not be seated until it was closer to our reservation time. So...we stood there staring at each other for 10 min and we were shown to our table. During our dinner, (about 90min) there were no less than four tables empty and unused in our area. Not sure who is responsible for this policy but, it’s ridiculous.

Hard to judge we were in a secondary dining room due to private party in regular cafe feel private party should be in secondary room and keep business as usual in main dining room not fair for regular customers to play second fiddle to one time events

The atmosphere is very fun and visually pleasing; however, the menu reminded me of your average chain restaurant, like Fridays or Applebees. If I hadn't been in a rush, I probably wouldn't have chosen to eat here after seeing the menu options.

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.
