“Lot's of Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

I have been going to Hard Rock since it opened. They have a great selection of table games and slots. They also have some very good restaurants such as Rise and Council Oaks.

“Average at Best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

If your looking for a quick fix to appease your gambling needs then this will suffice but if your a world traveler who has visited numerous casinos then this will be nothing but a disappointment for you. From the lack of big gaming tables to the overall dismal atmosphere, it saddens me to see the grandmas using their social security checks to try and cash in. If your over 65 and have nothing better to do with your retirement money and dont mind smelling like an ashtray when you leave, then this is the place for you.

We're sorry to hear you were disappointed when you visited us. We are a AAA Four Diamond hotel and casino, a distinction we don't take lightly and given sparingly in the Tampa Bay Area. While we appreciate other casinos, we don't necessarily claim to be like them. We have world class beaches nearby, theme parks, some of Florida's most iconic and historic landmarks close by and hope our guests like yourself continue to support our vast growth and development to keep getting better for you. We have come a long way from Seminole Bingo, and look forward to a bright future. Thank you for your comments.

“Was not the class act I was hoping for.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I know what you are thinking. A bad casino review... He lost... This is not about that. This is more geared towards the high minimum bets and lack of comps. After a whole day of play there were no offers for a buffet or anything of the sort. The slots were average and seemed to be last years models. I expected more polish especially compared to Biloxi. I left my players club card on the table when I left.

We're sorry to hear that you were disppointed. We rather enjoy giving offers to our most loyal guests. Was this your first time visting us? Our comps and coupons are based on play, frequency of visits and other factors. Even though you left your card here, be sure to stop by the Player's Club and get another one, every time you swipe earns you entries into our promotions. We hope you visit us again soon.

Thank you for your comments. Fresh Harvest is our seven live action kitchen dining experience. We're so happy you enjoyed it, its truly outstanding.
While we do allow smoking on the casino floor, our poker room, restaurants are smoke free and we also have a smoke free slot room. Be sure to check it out next time you visit us.
