Tampa's Hard Rock Cafe is conveniently located inside the Hard Rock Hotel, which currently claims the title of 6th largest casino in the world. Although there are 7 restaurants to choose from and a variety of food court selections, nothing says a night of entertainment quite like a dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. Hard Rock's vibrant, Rock N'Roll theme goes perfectly with a fun night out at the casino. Start your night out right with good food, good service, and good music at Hard Rock Tampa.
Hard Rock's menu includes a diverse selection of everyday favorites like burgers, comfort foods like macaroni and cheese and quesadillas, and healthy salads. The entree salads are large enough in themselves for a meal, no appetizer required! Although if you do decide on an appetizer, be sure to try out the spring rolls and/or nachos. Both are delicious! The Cobb Salad is a delightful mixture of all sorts of veggies, chicken, and your choice of dressing. Vegetarians don't worry as Hard Rock is fine with any substitutions. Switching out extra avocado and red peppers for the chicken is a great choice as it really helps to make the meal more satisfying and filling. The Grilled Chicken salad has the perfect combo of meats, veggies(carrots, tomatoes, corn, and peppers), and pecans to provide a satisfying meal. The mixture of white balsamic vinaigrette and barbecue sauce as the dressing surprisingly works well together.
Service at this particular location was not the best, just average. Nothing spectacular, but not particularly bad either. Some Hard Rock's have a more touristy feel than others; the Tampa location has more of a casual, local vibe.
Tampa's Hard Rock has an attractive design with a neat lighted dome bar. Around the walls, you will find cool rock inspired quotes, memorabilia, and photographs. The music is great like always. Check the entertainment schedule for live shows taking place throughout the month.
Overall, Hard Rock Cafe Tampa was a great experience, complete with great food and that trademark one of a kind rock star theme that Hard Rock does so well.
