We were a group of 9 and they automatically added the tip - which they didn't deserve. Service was very slow, we needed to track down the waiter a few times for refilling drinks. The food was cold when it came out. We again needed to track down the waiter to get it re-heated. I ate mine (it was not hot).
Portions were descent, prices (like other Hard Rock Cafes) a bit high for what you get.
On the positive side - like other Hard Rock Cafes - it is pretty neat to walk around and see the different stuff they have on display.

Stick to the food court for value and easy ordering. The café is overpriced and you can walk thru and look at the memorabilia without spending $14 on a burger, we ordered and waited over 40 minutes before we finally went elsewhere. For a splurge the steak house has prime aged beef but bring some extra $ as it is not cheap. They also have a nice buffet with options you can add to your meal for an additional price such as lobster tails, steak, shrimp etc...If your looking for a quick bite and like an open kitchen try the oriental grill next to the high roller room it's good, fast and entrees are $12.Careful with the drinks, this seems to be a high profit area for the casino.

We were seated right in front of the stage, which we did NOT want, but after waiting 30 minutes, were told there were no other tables. I think they were just trying to seat for the poor server who got stuck in that section because nobody wanted to sit there. Beyond the noise, the service was pretty attentive and the food was in line with what you would expect for the place and the price. No real complaints.
