This is a continuation of my review of the restaurant as I did not review the shop in December. Bebett provided great customer service as I added to my pin collection. The number of pin choices was not outstanding, but the service and the overall experience was.

The salmon was very juicy. The sizzling fajitas was perfect and the honey chicken was excellent. Little surprised that they don't have all the beers available during the week they had a very limited supply at such a humongous hard rock. You'll enjoy it. It's attached to the hard rock Casino which by the way does not have life we... More

My husband is an avid HRC pin collector- so we was thrilled that in one day trip he could get both Orlando & Tampa HRC pins! I was pleasantly surprised that the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino had a Cafe, as that hasn't been our West Coast experience. The cafe has a newly renovated feeling and feels very upscale. Great... More

My kids loving going to HRC we have been to them all over the world but what we did not like was having to go through the smoke filled casino to get from the parking garage to the restaurant. That being said the service and food once we got there were very good. We all had burgers that we enjoyed.... More

We ate here last night. Bar area has drink and appetizer specials. We had a few wings to start which we enjoyed. We both had a large dinner salad that we loved. I had the chicken arugula salad and would definitely recommend.

The pulled pork sandwich was delicious but the fries that came with it were hard and tasted awful. Usually HRC does amazing job with their fries. Maybe it was just not my day but I was loving the pulled pork sandwich. Something I truly love when I visit any HRC that served pork as some are Halal that doesn't serve... More

This was a last minute choice to go out. Every other place were so expensive for the night. We paid $20 each for entry which came with 2 drinks. Not too bad... The atmosphere was perfect for the night. We rung in the near and enjoyed the evening...
