Good memorabilia

Firstly the food was tasty but all 5 of us were served meals that were not hot, instead warm. This was disappointing given that they could have delivered the meals sooner and avoided this. We enjoyed looking at all the memorabilia on display.

I've visited a few other Hard Rock Cafes around the world and this one lived up to the standard I've come to expect. The menu offers a filling selection of mouth watering food which is reasonably priced for the portion sizes, the desserts are a little pricey but too good to miss! The staff were really friendly and always on... More

My partner and I frequently visit Hard Rock Cafe Surfers Paradise for one reason only... Their Jumbo Combo Platter. The atmosphere is classic Hard Rock, and is american bar themed. This ambiance combined with the alternative rock music, really gets you in the right mood. The service is always absolutely outstanding, and to this day is the best customer service... More

I went to the Hard Rock Cafe Surfers Paradise today & instead of my normal smokehouse selection, I thought I'd try something new. Enter the Tango Burger. All I can say is wow. It is the best burger I've ever eaten without question. I was actually sad when I finished it because I wouldn't be eating it anymore. And Jesse,... More

One week at the Gold Coast and we ate there twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The food fantastic, stake and chicken perfectly cooked and the taste was to die for. Try the mushroom sauce and the grilled chicken dish. The atmosphere at this hard rock is better then others including the New York. We felt welcomed and... More
