Stopped in for drinks and was really disappointed, the barman seemed to be interested in everything else but my husband and I, we actually had to ask him to take our order even though there was a total of 6 people there at the time and we were the only ones that hadn't the been served. They do not have... More

I stopped in to HRC for dinner tonight but no tables were available. Lots of seats free at the bar so I chose to sit there. How glad I am that I did. Jon, the bartender, was welcoming, attentive, and mixed an awesome margarita. I had the ribs, which were super-tender and tasty. The food was as good as expected,... More

Jesse our waiter was fantastic. I am a scotch drinker and Jesse introduced me to the 'Black tooth grin' a drink concocted by the... More

I've visited many Hard rocks in my time, all over the world. I'm never disappointed with what it! It's quite a small establishment as far as HR goes but certainly has a great vibe and atmosphere at dinner time. It was packed at 7pm on a Friday so reservations are recommended. Our server was Nik who was just awesome. Friendly... More

The food served are in generous portion and the service staff is always as friendly ever. However, be prepared as it could be a little more pricey compare to the many other restaurant nearby. The retail store is disappointing as many items are out of stock or sizes.

We visited hard rock surfers paradise twice in our 10 day visit and we weren't disappointed! Perfect food and perfect service. On our last night we were looked after by Nik and even my 8 year old commented on how great the service had been. We will definitely visit again soon.

Whilst in the Gold Coast recently I stopped in to the Hard Rock for lunch whilst I was in sight seeing in Surfers. I sincerely miss the Melbourne store and I was almost salivating at the thought of having the potato skins and a sundae again (not in the same dish mind you lol). I was not disappointed. From the...
