Great Hard rock food

Not much to say other than great food for both adults and children. Huge portions. Ribs were amazing and so were the chicken wings (hot hot!). Our only complaint would be we felt harassed by staff. Could be seen as good customer service but we were approached by 3 wait staff within the first 5... read more

Every country and city I visit, I always check to see if there's an HRC. The food is always delicious and the atmosphere is always fun! The service at this one though was pretty slow and the server wasn't the same fun-loving person you typically get at HRC's. Still worth going though! If you sit outside you get a nice... More

I came down from Brisy to meet a mate who drove up from NSW. We thought we'd grab a pint and some grub while sitting on the balcony watching the tourists. We ordered some nachos to get started and a pint. The waitress came back and said they were out of that one, so we tried two different ones that... More

Upon entering the staff were very welcoming, the place was noisy but I guess that just makes the venue even more alive, also great memorabilia. The food was average, I had fish and chips and the batter on the fish was mushy rather then crunchy, but it wasn't bad. The cocktails were great though and my partner couldn't stop at... More

We really had a great meal here. For starters there was chicken wings and vegetarian there was tortilla with toppings of onions, tomatoes and cheese. Before my fish could come we ate so much of the starters. Also there was an option of wine, beer or cold drink. The food was really good. A lot of people had their birthdays... More

We enjoyed our meal at the Hard Rock Cafe. The burgers were huge and tasty, and the drinks were terrific. We sat on the balcony and were served by the wonderful, helpful staff (special mention to Amy). Would recommend to anyone.

Service was excellent, wonderful wait staff and welcoming. The restaurant was noisy but this compliments the atmosphere of liveliness and excitement. Food was good and satisfying. Would return.

Large feel to this restaurant and probably a good family restaurant but fell short for me when I visited with a friend. I had the fish and chips (Baramundi) but I didn't enjoy them. The fish was bland and the chips weren't tasty either. My friend had a trio of meats and that looked delicious and in fact it tasted... More

If you have never eaten in Hard Rock the food is based around appetisers, burgers. steaks and tex mex. There is a separate kids menu with a better than average choice for kids. The cocktail list is well above par and the desserts - love them but wish I had more room some times. The wait staff go above and... More
