I'm so done with this concept. All I ever hear is lousy music, that won't come near hard rock music. Overpriced, overrated.

While in Key West we decided to eat at the Hard Rock. For a tourist destination we were worried about the pricing but it was not as expensive. We each had a main course plate, total of 4 different non-alcoholic drinks and the bill plus tip was $60. Not too bad for what is known as a tourist area. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I will look into the AC. Maybe having the doors closed during the summer months would work out well. The next time you are in Key West please stop by and give us another try. More

Visited the Hard Rock Café, Key West on a Friday night (9/5/2014) that was not very busy. Walked up to the hostess, who just stared at us, and we asked for a booth for two inside, to which she replied, "I think I can do that". Wow... sorry to put you out while your at work!.

Visited the hard rock cafe on Duval street this weekend. The hostess was very curt and treated us as if we were just occupying the table and needed to get out of there ASAP. The food took ~45 min to come out. Also, I understand that they need to make money; but $12 for a glass of Budweiser. Thats nuts.... More

You may dine indoor or outdoor here. Vibe is fun, usually busy but service is good. Food was good, menu had good selection. Came in sunburned and hot and the waitress greeted us with "I'm going to get you some water right away". She was really concerned about us suffering from heat stroke! We dined here once and stopped in... More

Located on Duval Street in an old home, Hard Rock Café is a great place to visit and see lots of music memorabilia, have a tasty bite to eat, and visit the Café shop for souvenirs.

It was just ok food for an overpriced menu. Staff was very mechanical in how they served guests but they were not shy by almost demanding you go outside where they sell their wares. Had lunch nothing to write home about.

Location, location, location. This hard rock sits in an old mansion. I make a point to always stop in at a hard rock while traveling so I've seen a few. This was perfect for the area and was all around great. Definitely take a look pretty sit and have a drink at the outside bar.

We've eaten at several HRC's around the world (UK, Egypt, the States) and we think that this is the best one so far! It's not massive, but located in this charming traditional Key West property it's quite possibly one of the friendliest and more unique. The fact that the property may be haunted just adds a little more edge!
