This was a must see place for me. If your in LA and on Sunset Boulevard then drop in for a beer. Its utterly crammed with rock legends guitars, drums, photos and tonnes more. It makes The Hard Rock Cafe look like a childs drawing, this is the real mcCoy. If you boil it down to what it is, its... More

You can't come here and not be impressed by its rock credentials. The place is covered with photos of famous regulars, both past and present. The drinks are standard, but the food is great and the service has loads of rock n roll attitude. I can't get enough - but I'm a huge fan of all it stands for!

We had a reservation - we had been the day before for both lunch and an interview. It took 40 minutes before anyone came to the table after we were seated. We kept asking if we could order and we kept getting told ok they are coming soon, and no one came. Managed to get an order in an hour... More

Being a rock and roll fanatic it was just a wonderful lunch experience on Sunset Strip. Went for lunch on a Friday, the food was really good, enjoyable and simple fayre but well executed. The pizzas were amazing and portions were ridiculously big for the price! Service was great too and they earned a well deserved tip! US$30 covered lunch... More

Get a drink here a lot of history in the world of RnR. Major hangout of many rockers esp popular in the 80's. It run down like a lot of the greats in LA/Hollywood. If walls could talk!

I'd wanted to visit here for years and years and when the opportunity arose I was thoroughly disappointed. Rude staff, we got served at the bar by the look of death and got charged $12 for a corona. Generally it just wasn't what I was expecting. Would neither return or recommend. It was the only low point of my trip... More

For any hard rocking holiday maker or heavy metal fan, the Rainbow Bar 'N Grill is Valhalla, paradise, the one place where the "gods" converge to hang out. Well, if meeting rock stars is your thing, then you're probably missing out on the real attraction here, and that's the food and the service. I'm serious. Just sit down, grab a... More

We called here for some drinks and if you love rock music like I do you'll have a ball. It was great rubbing shoulders with 'rock stars' and finally get to see what the bands... More
