“BIG CASINO --ALWAYS BUSY”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

The biggest of the seminole casinos in Florida. It was expanded last year with tons of slots, more tables, and larger hotel and more parking. It,s quite noisy and crowded every afternoon and evening. There are many rooms to play table games from $10. and up. They have everything but roulette and craps tables--they have machines for them , but they are not the same.It,s easy to get there off route 4 near route 75 which runs north and south. The poker room is very large and usually very busy. The food court is adaquate but has good and bad things. Fish sandwiches, burgers, and philly sandwiches are good. Pizza so so and italian average.They have cuban food too-- but I can,t coment. The chinese food is not that good. The chicken is ok but the the pork is sparce when ordering sweet and sour pork. The fried rice is greasy. The hard rock cafe and green room has good food and the buffet is fine. The high rollers restaurant is over priced , small amounts of food. Their lobster bisque was $9.00 was very small and had one small piece of lobster. I,ll never go back in there. Some say the slots are tough but i can,t mention because i play tables only.

“Visited Seminole Hard Rock!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The place is amazing, it is huge.
We just visited to see the place and ate in the HRC.
We were shocked to find smoking allowed inside
We were shocked to be unable to take photos
The HRC was smaller than I had expected but the food was good.

Hi there, thank you for your comments. Because we are a casino, we do not allow photography inside the casino floor, but we do allow photography in our restaurants. The Hard Rock Cafe bar is the only restaurant that allows smoking inside, but the rest of our restaurants are smoke free. We look forward to see you again real soon.

“Smoky rooms, not loose slots, payoffs minimal”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

You need a gas mask to navigate the room. Very small payout. Rock and Roll memorabilia was cool. Variety of games to choose from.

We pay out millions in jackpots daily, hopefully you can be one of them next time. We understand the smoke can be uncomfortable to some, we do have smoke free restaurants, a smoke free poker oom and a smoke free slot room. Be sure to visit us there for your convenience. Thank you for your comments.

“Great with a few flaws!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We gambled here in march the casino fancy, big, and fun. On the other hand did not like that almost all of the fun slots, touchscreen based were 2 cents and up. There is a lot of games and variety. They did not pay at all, we usually go to Harrah's Cherokee and they pay pretty good compared to this place. The food was good though, and the fun, and entertainment was great. Overall worth a visit to see if you like.

“Slots and Food”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

The slots are noisy, but not with alot of payout. Good time people watching and checking out the rock and roll memorabillia. Not real crazy about the smoking that is permitted. We ate at the buffet which was full of many choices. Great waldorf salad; desserts appealing by the looks, but taste a little flat; fresh shrimp and oysters for those who like them; great steak choices as well. If you are in the Tampa area it is worth the stop just to check it out.
