You know what your getting here, it's a burger joint

But the staff are excellent, the service excellent and that's what makes it a great restaurant. The burgers are the pick of the mains, potato skins and wings for entrees.

Great service with friendly staff. We had surf and turf, the steaks were cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. The sauce was flavoursome. The vegetables were cooked to perfection.

Excellent location, both indoor and outdoor seating with a view. Food was brought to the table very quickly, very well cooked, presentation was excellent. Both drinks and food were reasonably priced. Would eat here again.

I'm a local,but my friends I'd lunch with here aern't.The fact that for their nachos being beef there's a surcharge on this was awful,as I've never any other place I've dined in had to pay extra just to add meat to this dish which normally includes beef nachos as the way they come! Also,now being a vegetarian myself hardly any... More

We visited here twice while we were staying in Surfer's Paradise and thoroughly enjoyed both. We were welcomed by friendly and hard working staff who went out their way to make sure we were always happy. The food came out quite quickly and was lovely. Would recommend the Hard Rock Nachos! After our meal we sat at the bar for... More
