The same as every other hard rock with one exception, the staff were awesome. They have great banter in this place, taking photos of us with our flag and involving the whole restaurant. Thanks guys.

They definitely have bar seating. The bar is on the right as soon as you walk into the restaurant area. Bar seating does not have the best view of the boardwalk, however. Another option if traveling solo is to go for outdoor... More

Step inside Trump's Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino, which is the setting for the rockin'est joint on the Boardwalk, the Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City. There's plenty of seating on the patio overlooking the Boardwalk or at the Gibson guitar-shaped bar inside. Either way, you'll be at Atlantic City's party central. HRC hosts a number of events, so plan on finding a good seat. Hard Rock Atlantic City is a welcome retreat from the slots and gaming tables. This is the one place in town where you can definitely hit the ROCK 'N' ROLL jackpot and there's no chance of losing money. We guarantee you'll leave with the shirt on your back, but why not visit our merchandise shop and buy a new one?
