Ate here a couple of times. The kitchen burger was wonderful and the staff very friendly. The desserts were amazing and huge. Maybe a littke overpriced though

We had an average meal here - big burgers mainly. The service was OK and it was clean. Quite quiet for such a big hotel

If you are staying at the HardRock and don’t want to eat at the Palm give this place a shot. Pretty full menu of choices, from kids, to seafood, to steaks.

Besides many offerings on the buffet line they also have an omelet station. The pastries were delicious and there is something for everyone. Vegan, vegetarian! And carnivores alike. Everything was hot and well prepared.
