In the casino area of the Hard Rock Hotel in Tampa is one of their ubiquitous Cafes. I seems to me that if you have been in one Hard Rock Cafe you have, well, been in all of them. Standardization can work well for restaurant chains but it can also be boring. However, this Tampa location has a different feel and, I believe, that difference comes down to staff. Our reservations were immediately honored. We were greeted with big smiles and genuine care. The decor is about what you would expect - one difference is a feeling of greater openness. The service is quick and attentive. The menu, yes, is standard but the kitchen does a super job with fresh, hot, tasty and nicely presented orders. The price might have been higher than other locations, hard to tell. Nature of being in a casino location? Next visit to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino will include the Cafe. Certainly worth it.
