Going down this month, do Ocean or Hard Rock have any outdoor dining? If not, is there a place to take your takeout outside? Thanks!
With regards to Hard Rock the Hard Rock Cafe and Sugar Factory has outdoor seating that's right on the Baordwalk. Fish & Co. ,when open, has a few picnic table-type seating right on the Baordwalk right opposite the Steel Pier Entrance. If you want to eat your own food or food bought from the Food Court area from the 2nd floor there's a nice outdoor seating area on the 2nd floor. You walk straight past the Fresh Harvest Buffet through the glass doors and there's a outdoor terrace with tables and chairs.
I can't think of any outdoor eating at Ocean, though you can certainly take your to go food to eat by the firepits on the hotel lobby level.
You can check out Tennessee Ave. Beer Hall and Bourre for outdoor dining, a short walk from Hard Rock. There was a live band outside of Bourre this past Saturday afternoon. Biergarten, a half block north of Tropicana has outdoor dining, as does the restaurant next door, the name escapes me.
The Deck at Golden Nugget was open last weekend according to a social media post, not sure what they offered. Landshark in front of Resorts has been open, but I think they offered inside dining and an outdoor drinking.
You will likely need to make a game day decision and call to confirm what’s open and what’s not.
