Hard Rock Cafe is the casual eatery version of the classic Hard Rock restaurant. These versions of the Hard Rock restaurant are for those who need a quick bite or don't want to have a full sit-down dinner. The idea for the restaurant came when Hard Rock owners were searching for a good fast burger and didn't like their options between current fast-food chains. Hard Rock Cafe's menu is all about classic American fare. There are plenty of great appetizers, but hungry guests should try the Classic Nachos, with the option to add Guacamole, Grilled Chicken or Grilled Steak. The entrées are delicious, but this menu was built around crafting great burgers and Hard Rock has several recipes. One of the most popular is the Original Legendary Burger. This is an in house made burger with Applewood bacon, cheddar cheese, crispy onion rings, leaf lettuce and vine-ripened tomato, served with our signature steak sauce on the side.

    The booking service through the actual restaurant was disappointing. We arrived at approximately 330pm to find that the wait was between 30-45 minutes to be seated as the restaurant was having a “staffing issue”. I put my number down for the wait list and was told I would receive a text message when our table was ready. After nearly a 75 minute wait, I went to check in with the hostess to find that the message was never sent. The issue was “owner declined to receive messages”. I explained to the hostess that i never received a message and asked if there was a table available. As I was waiting for the hostess to return, two other guests advised they were having the same issue and have been waiting much longer than previously told. When the hostess returned, we were seated and told a server would we with us shortly. Approximately 15 minutes after being seated, a server finally came over to take our order and drinks. Nearly 30 minutes later, we received our meal (two cheeseburgers and an onion ring tower). Looking around, there were only 5 other tables seated and all were waiting for their meals. Although the food was fantastic, we will not be returning to this restaurant.

    The reservation was for 7:15 PM, as there was a concert at 8 PM. We went to the host desk and it was mass confusion. Staff didn’t seem to know what was going on and were actively avoiding customers. At 7:20, a server finally acknowledged us and when we gave the name for the reservation, she said not yet. At 7:30 we checked again and reiterated we had a 7:15 reservation, the server said she was looking at the wait list instead of the reservation. We were seated at 7:35. At 7:45, no one had taken out order or come to our table so we left and told the waitstaff we needed to leave to make the concert. One of the worse experiences I have had dining.

    Got seated right away with reservations. Our server, Shelby was friendly and the drink special, expresso martini, was delicious. Service time was good as was the food. Seating was more toward the casino which was fun.

    Three people at our table ordered the filet mignon special and they had told us they ran out 30 mins later, so we all ordered the ribeye and then again they came back 30 minutes later to tell us they ran out. Mind you during this time we still have not seen our drinks which had been well over an hour since we ordered them. When our drinks finally did come they were pretty terrible, and my drink wasn’t even correct. And mind you I ordered the special drink that they made for Valentine’s Day. We ended up getting chicken sandwiches, which were subpar. Honestly McDonald’s chicken sandwiches are better. By the time our food and drinks came out we had already been sitting for an hour and a half. I would not recommend going here unless you want to wait forever for your food and drinks, and it be subpar and overpriced.

    My experience here was an unexpected terrible one . From the bar not having the ingredients to make my drink ( just a day before the Superbowl) to my legendary burger coming over cooked and my onion rings coming tough and rubbery. It was a bad experience over all . The restaurant wasn't busy at all we were treated with passive response until we heard a manager meeting behind us . This was extremely unprofessional. Staffing issues or conversation about work need not take place in front of paying customer. This shows a lack of leadership and can cause moral to drop . Please have your management to focus and staff to focus on the day at band and not worry about what will happen on Superbowl Sunday .

    Listen, it’s a chain restaurant so you go for the experience. I’d say this Hard Rock is lacking in decoration and ambiance compared to others in the franchise. It sits toward the back of a casino floor so you get more of a hotel restaurant vibe. The service was good and quick. Food was average for the restaurant. Menu was pretty limited - burgers and fries. It wasn’t bad by any means, but it’s no different than a Red Robin or a Chili’s.

    It was a little crazy in there with the football game going on. I didn't mind as much as my wife did. But the service was excellent and the food was great. Shelby was our server and she was spot on with the service. The price was comparable to other casinos we have eaten at.

    The sound level was higher than normal because of a 49ers-Green Bay playoff game that delayed a show we were attending that night. But that just contributed to a party atmosphere in which the 49ers' last-minute and game-winning play capped the game well and led well into an upbeat mood for the Kathleen Madigan standup performance. Overall, great food, great service, and a lot of fun at the show.

    We thought this would be a good family stop on our travels. Sadly we had to walk through the cigarette smoked casino with our young children to get to the restaurant only to find out that it’s an open restaurant to the casino with the same cigarette smoke air. Luckily the waitress was good and fast so we could get out fast…Why don’t you have an entrance from the parking lot so young children and us non smokers don’t have to breathe the toxic air… Food was just ok and we’ll never be back

    Since the cafe is attached to a casino, our dining experience involved inhaling cigarette smoke from the casino. This was a major detraction to our dining experience.
