Was invited to have dinner with a friend. Wonderful food a service. My friend had the crab claws, which were in season. Probably the biggest i have seen . Probably 8-10 ounces each. I had one of the best pieces of swordfish I've ever had. Salads were great. Wedge salad was outstanding. The service as great. Wish i could have... More

Was at restaraunt for third time within past 18-24 months on Tuesday evening via OpenTable reservation. Food was as good as always, but our server and the associated service was not as good as it's been in the past. Didn't offer my wife a drink re-order when he asked me and when we did order a second glass for her,... More

If you are in the casino at the Hard Rock, this is a fine repast. But I would not go out of my way to eat here. The steaks are above average. While better than an Outback, they are not even to the level of the chain steak houses like Mortons or Ruth's Chris. That said, I would direct you... More

I was just at the Sunday Brunch last weekend- this was a great experience. The brunch has a wide variety of food stations and the quality of the food was very good. We also enjoyed the unlimited champagne! The sushi bar is a new addition and the severs there are terrific! The lamb chops were the best I have ever... More

Located at Seminole Hard Rock Casino. Kinda upscale restaurant and pricy. Too dark inside, so waiters use flash lights to help you with the menue. Also, the live music is way too loud.The service is not consistent There was no salt or pepper offered with seafood platter arrived, so we had to ask for it. No wash cloths were available,... More

We stopped in for an appetizer while we were gambling away. Well we gambled away our food money too because it was a true loss at our table. We ordered the lobster bisque, crab cakes, and steak Caesar salad. The prices were outrageous for the tiny servings you got. The salad was one of the worse and the crab cakes... More

We decided to try this restaurant followed by trying our luck at the blackjack tables. The Capital Grille and Abe and Louie's are our favorite steak houses, so we didn't expect much at this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with an excellent seating location, and superior and well-paced service from both the waiter and the busboy. Very professional. The meal... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this hotel and went to Council Oak for dinner - Saturday night. We frequent the one in Tampa and have always had a positive experience there, we assumed the same for this place - boy were we wrong! There is a serious lack of consistency in service, décor and food quality from... More
