The Rez Grill is an exciting new culinary destination at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, part of our recent expansion. With a chef-driven menu and down-to-earth vibe, this upscale but accessible American grill epitomizes fine dining done casually.
The Food and Beverage
A thoughtful curated menu offers diners a wide variety of elevated comfort food favorites ranging from a selection of items straight from the kitchen's Jade wood burning grill to hand-made pastas, and dishes meant for sharing that are playfully categorized as "table participation."
From a classic Lobster Roll to The Rez Burger, the menu is simple in its approach with locally-sourced and sustainably farmed ingredients acting as the star.
Equal dedication will be shown to the beverage program founded on craft cocktails and a 100-bottle wine list as well as four micro-breweries on tap, three of which are local to Tampa. A dynamic bar is outfitted with skilled mixologists who create made-to-order drinks using house-made syrups and juices.
The 5,000-square-foot interior combines a creative collaboration between designer Laurence Lee Associates and architect Klai Juba Wald. Modern and rustic details are juxtaposed with design features including patterned floors, sleek leather bar fronts, old weathered beams and rich walnut woods, giving customers a contemporary, yet old-fashioned pub feel. The painted crème colored moldings and woodwork elevate the room with lighter accents.
Long and tall glass windows surround the walls of the restaurant, allowing a passerby to get a glimpse of the bar scene. Bentwood and cane chairs, Pullman-style banquettes and long mingling dining tables seat 120 and invite a casual dining concept. For a glimpse of the action, a communal table gives way to an open kitchen featuring a Jade wood-burning grill with burning cherry wood coming directly from Florida.
The Rez Grill is for people who know good food and want to enjoy it in a sophisticated but comfortable atmosphere.
