Particularly after we ordered an item that said it could be modified to be gluten free only to discover that the recipe has changed... read more

We were seated next to a table of drunk guys, and left to sit for 40 minutes. In that time, not one of the five waitresses bothered to ask us... More

Hard rock is one of my all time favorite resturants. The quality of food and service is always fantastic. The Jumbo combo is soooo good. It has potato skins, onion rings, chicken wings, chicken strips, and the most amazing hot spinach and artichoke dip with crispy flatbread. The dipping sauces that come with are delish. This can be a meal... More
