Good good good service

Went here for a 40th bday dinner for a friend On a Saturday night. Drink service took a little long so we ordered at bar, had cocktails that seemed to taste like they had no alcohol in them. Everyone really enjoyed their food, I had the chicken arugula salad and it was fantastic, very tasty. Gets... read more

Have been here a few times with groups and just as a couple. Service is fantastic all staff are super friendly and the meals are huge. The prices of some things may seem a little step but the servings are true American size so it's great value. I love looking at all the rock memorabilia.

We chose to eat here because we got into town quite late and a few other places were already closed. If you want to eat large American style meals, this is perfect for you. Friday night has live music and there was a really annoying MC yelling through a microphone while we were trying to eat. The waitress saw me... More

We'd just been travelling for 8 hours with two small childrren so popped in here for a quick dinner! WOW! The staff are a credit to this place! We had some issues with our little one falling asleep and needing his pram so the staff quickly cleared us a new table (in a very busy restaurant) and helped us move... More

We had the spicy chicken wings...it was pretty damn good. The drinks were pretty over prized but the atmosphere and customer service was spot on. Very awesome staff and food.

Having been to many hard rocks, including London, Paris and back home in Spain I didn't have much hope for eating here as other venues have been particularly disappointing. Very happy to say though surfers paradise seem to have it nailed. Being smack bang in the middle of Surfers you'd expect it to be pretty expensive. However we were pleasantly... More

I came here on my first night i have set foot in Australia. I have heard about the hard rock cafe so I really wanted to go to one. I loved it. The experience, the atmosphere, the food and drinks were great. I even got a free cocktail glass which was cool to take home

Come here if your looking for great food cooked exceptionally well and service that never lets you down. Simple food done the way it should be. A special mention must go to lucey. She is a very talented and beautiful person who is a asset to that business. Can't go past the all you can eat ribs on Tuesday nights.... More
