The family and I dined here on our recent family holiday and I have to say that we all left happy and full. Our waiter (Jesse) was amazing. He was very friendly and interacted well with the kids.

Not often a tourist icon can also provide impressive food, service and atmosphere - the Hard Rock is an exception. The menu caters for everyone, like a good family / social venue should, but it's the quality of the food that impresses. Far and above your best pub feed, the portions are sizable and taste terrific.

So we (5 of us) are staying in Surfers for one night (Saturday) and the towns busy. We end up managing to get a table after a very reasonable 15 min wait, in which we had a drink at the bar.

WOW ! A busy Saturday night and the service was great. Meal (Classic Burger) was ok but the service was entertainment in itself! From the very cute bartender juggling glasses and putting on an awesome show to the attention to detail - this place definitely rocks. Will definitely b back.

Make sure you have the Hickory Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich. Stunning. Great food, service and child friendly. Don't go past this place when in Surfers.

Had a problem with a member of the wait staff whilst being seated & almost left to eat somewhere else. Marc Cooper the general manager bent over backwards to straighten things out. We had the BBQ smoked Trio & The Texas Chili Burger. The food was outstanding & the wait staff were exceptional. Would highly recommend trying them out.
