Breakfast buffet, lots of good choices. The cooks who do the omelets and eggs do a good job of meeting people in and out. The variety is good and the staff does good job of refilling the dishes and keeping the food fresh.

We ate here one evening when staying at the Hard Rock hotel. The staff and service was excellent and they were very attentive. A special mention is required for the pretzel bread sticks they give you at the start also, they are to die for! We both ordered a main course, mine was the fillet mignon, it was excellent in...

This restaurant in my expectation should have delivered more but was "OK." Average fare for an exorbitant price. Breakfast buffet for $21: average limited items. Order breakfast from the menu and your guest may have completed 3-4 dishes before your $19 egg arrives.

We eat breakfast here every time I stay at the Hard Rock. It is a great buffet with everything you can think of including omelet and waffle stations. It is located down by the pool and close to the boat to take you to the parks. It is pricey for breakfast but very good.

The Kitchen restaurant serves wonderful food, has great staff, and the setting is beyond fun! The restaurant is kind of tucked away under the lobby of the Hard Rock hotel and adjacent to the pool. It's well worth finding! The place is jam-packed with incredible music industry memorabilia and the overall atmosphere is relaxed yet elegant. Our server was excellent... More

$21 per person for Breakfast Buffet. Sure it was good but not worth $21 per person. It's convenient. There was 5 of us, so I paid in total $121 with tip for eggs and toast. I'll eat at the park next time for breakfast

Thank Stewge2014
