Owner description: As artist Billy Swan sang, "Memphis Rocks!" Located in the cotton-trading capital of the Delta, Memphis virtually invented blues, soul and rock 'n' roll. Once well-known for heavy gambling, voodoo, murder and prostitution, Memphis is just a hard-rocking place where you can get great food and hear hot tunes. Home to both Sun Records and Stax Records, this city has always been foremost in finding talent, and the rollicking live music scene is still kicking hard today. Maybe that's why Memphis is mentioned in more songs than just about any other city. So if you're out "Walking In Memphis" on the "Memphis Streets" and you get yourself a mean case of the "Walkin' Blues," just do the electric slide or "Memphis Boogie" right on into the Hard Rock Cafe Memphis and let us ease you into "Memphis Bliss." Our historic building, set on boogie street Beale, has done time as a recording studio and a saloon - the perfect combination for an electrifying menu that'll make you stomp and shout. Memphis was also Elvis's home, and the only place he ever felt he belonged. So come on down, y'all, for a taste of Southern hospitality and "Good Rockin' Tonight," 'cause you're bound to soon feel the exact same way. And while Elvis may have left the building (on a "Memphis Train?"), you can stay as long as you want. It's a "Memphis Thing."

Went there on Monday lunchtime for a snack and drink while visiting various attractions in the area. We were greeted at once and seated and given menus, but after that there was no one to be seen, we waited at least five minutes expecting someone to introduce themselves as our server and to ask if we wanted drinks but no...

The Hard Rock Cafe is amazing in the historic Lansky Bros. building... They have amazing memorabilia throughout and the decor is great. The food was great... especially the potato skins. We truly enjoyed ourselves and will be back the next time we're in town.

My family likes to eat at Hard Rock Cafes when traveling out of town (where available). The main reason why is because we have come to expect / appreciate the consistency of service and quality of food we will receive at HRCs. While in Memphis for a mini-family reunion, we ate lunch at the HRC on Beale St, and the... More

Not a good atmosphere for a hard rock cafe. We weren't greeted when we came in and after standing for 5 minutes seated ourselves. Our nachos were burnt and everything was dry on them. We sent them back but they came back out about the same. The kids meal portion size was small. My friend that was with us vomited... More

pissed-off-bride, I want to begin by sincerely apologizing for the lack of attentiveness of our hosts, and also that you were not met by any of our managers on duty! This is not up to the level of expectation that we ask for our entire staff, from the host to the cooks. I would love to invite you back, on... More
