We loooovveee Hard Rock Cafes!! This one was no different....awesome music straight out of the 80's. Food is good but bit disappointing when you are a vegetarian. Free re-fill for soft drinks went well with my thirsty teens. To make their experience complete, I bought them a Surfers HRC tee... Great night!

The food, service and drinks were great. The meals are so huge, my daughter and I shared a starter but there was no way we could finish our mains we were given doggy bags to take home our left overs. The take home glasses are really good to. Will be back :)

I had the salmon and it was delicious my son and I popped in for a quick bite whilst on the Gold Coast. The staff were delightful and we both loved our meal thanks

Made the mistake of googling restaurants in Surfers Paradise and then reading out the list to the kids - needless to say we got no further than HRC!! And actually, this was not bad at all. We had a 20 minute wait or so, which is never really a problem in HRC as you have to sit at the bar... More

Not the best quality food but that's not why you go to a Hard Rock Café. Rock memorabilia lines the walls and the music videos playing stay with the rock theme. Pulled pork, hamburgers, ribs, steaks and onion rings. If these items interest you then this is the restaurant for you.

By far the best place to eat at Surfers. The food was exceptional and the service even better. Our host Jarryd was so good and took time to interact with my family and I. Next time I come back to Surfers will definitely be eating there.

Amazing service could not complain about that. We sat in the new surf room, not much to see in there at all. I had steak was good but not great and over priced, my partner had fish and chips and was safe to say very average!

Fantastic service at the bar with the bartender entertaining us with his flare, well done Justin and the Rock who took care of our dinner, superb. Do yourself a favour and get on down there. Birthday shout outs for all. Loved it!!!

Every Meal, Drink or Event at the Hard Rock Surfers Paradise is always something you will remember. My family and friends have had many a night at the HRC... The Staff are awesome and so much fun... You won't regret it..

The room was very noisy eventhough it wasn't even half-full. We had to wait way too long until we were served. The food was definitely lower quality compared to what you get in other Hard Rock Cafés!
