I believe I posted a video and it showed the casino carpet - which is now an orange/yellow/blue color but the sports book is going to be where THE SOCIAL was and that had hard floors, not carpeting

I didn't really pay attention to where the carpet was located, I just remember it was not as cool as the Revels carpet was, but I won't lose any sleep over it.

I don't even remember what their carpet looks like.

Way too busy and excessively floral.

Ocean Resort Casino has announced their restaurant line up. As with Hard Rock, the announcement is missing a quick serve/grab and go outlet or two. Eater Philly did an awesome write-up here.

Some noteworthy items are: Chef Jose Garces is returning with his Amada and Distrito outposts. Former Revel guests will remember Distrito as the taco truck just off the casino floor that also sold awesome margaritas. The 24/7 sit down option will be Cafe 500. If I had to make a guess, I would assume that is the former Relish space. Also returning is the upscale steakhouse, American Cut from Chef Marc Forgione. It always got great reviews, but for some reason every time I dined there, I always had an issue with something. A rock and roll themed restaurant dubbed Villain & Saint will also be an option. In addition, a barbecue outlet, Pit Boss BBQ & Beers, quicker italian at LaScala Pronto, famed burger joint by no other than Marky Mark and bros, Wahlburgers and dessert at Sweetie Pie Creamery are all coming to the resort. As typical, they will also have a Starbucks and not so typical, Cereal Town, described as a restaurant where you can try cereals from around the world. Hey, I am not going to knock that one until I try it.

I will say, they have a very diverse selection of restaurants. During the opening weekend, I am only spending a night at Ocean, so I plan to review 1 or 2 of the restaurants there initially.

The Ocean Resort Casino website has not been updated to reflect these restaurant announcements, so there is no way on their site to make reservations. They're also not on a third-party site (Open Table) as of yet either. I am sure they will be in the next week or so though.

Now if they could just get their darn gaming license so I believed they were really opening in exactly three weeks...

I never had the burger at Village Whiskey, but I remember having an awesome burger at Muscle Bar. That was an awesome bar/restaurant with a great craft beer list.

Will you be there opening weekend? I am planning on a session or two in the Ultra Lounge (I wonder if they will keep that name or just put up a high limit tables sign?)

Mussel Bar had the absolute worst service of all time - it was so bad I boycotted it

OK just saw the Hard Rock AC posted this on their website:




So I called about getting my two comped nights -- the woman on the phone said I am only entitled to one
I rebuffed her statement by having her check out the website
She said that the two nights are only given once you actually come to the casino and exchange your Diamond Card for a Rock Royalty card

Anyone know if this is correct?

Thanks for posting this! Yes, I believe they want you to upgrade the card first. From their website, right under the chart: "Complimentary room is based on availability and must be used within ninety (90) calendar days of the upgrade."

This tier match is a bit aggressive and dilutes the program for actual higher tier players. Heck, I love a good offer and $150 for walking in the door is awesome, but I don't think they balanced out which cards qualified for that top tier. I'd bet they have a tier above Rock Royalty (similar to the Seminole Casinos X Card).

If anyone would like to see the full details of the tier match including all the competitors, you can do so here.

The thing was, the offer of 2 nights was originally only for Seven Stars (when they first announced the tier matching and you were able to accomplish it online) - now, it includes Diamond -- also, it's weird, when you call, the booking agents say they need the actual casino name (Caesars/Harrah's/Bally's) to enter into the system, not merely Total Rewards -- I wonder for those of us who tier matched in their initial offering on line whether we will be stuck with the one night offer and no free play versus this offer they posted on their website (image above)

Yes, in the world of Total Rewards, the original offer was for one night for Diamond, two for Seven Stars. I am certain this would be in addition to anyone that booked the original room offer. It is very generous of them to offer three complimentary nights with no restrictions before they've dropped a dime in the joint. I think they're exposing themselves to being burned a little too much.
