Good food, excellent service, nice atmosphere. We stopped for a quick lunch during a trip down Front Street. What you would expect from a Hard Rock.

Ok, I know it's off-season and all...but seriously, the whole "Boardwalk" thing in Phillipsburg was just sad. The ONLY excitement was an outdoor type restaurant/bar that had a huge big projector tv going of the World Cup matches...we wandered around and saw pretty much nothing...but hungry so we hit the Hard Rock Cafe' expecting good food and fun. It wasn't... More

This is right on the Main Street by the beach - it's a busy place and somehow lacks the finesse or other HRCs. We enjoyed the meal just the same but it was hard work to get any real service. I doubt I'll try it again - there are better places around for less money.

The relaxing atmosphere, for my wife and kid, was amazing. We could see friends from above (the 2nd floor view) while at the beach front boardwalk area. The waitress was kind, low key and stressless. One of our friends was 5 months into her pregnancy and half way into the warm waters and enjoying it.

Came here on the way back from Maho beach before heading back to the ship and we were glad we did. We shared a couple of appetizers, had a few beers each and I had a large Pina Colada in a souvenir glass. While the food was priced a bit on the high side which was completely expected in a... More

My sister and I had rented a ride around the island and thought we'd grab a bite before we headed to the ship. It was so hot and I was miserable. Hard Rock was familiar so we agreed on that, especially to get out of the heat. You climb the stairs from inside the store to the restaurant up top.... More
