Much better food than I expected, oustanding live music.

I've avoided Hard Rock Cafes in other cities due to the loud noise and apparently mediocre food listed on the menus. We decided to go to this one because we were too hungry to look further and they had a table beside Duval Street. If this place is typical of other Hard Rock Cafes we'll be going... read more

The service was extremely slow and the place was more than half empty. They are not very enthusiastic, no-reason to be. The food was barely average. We split the "Texan" a pulled pork sandwich that was edible but not memorable, for $16 you would hope to get a tasty bit. Chose a local establishment.

The Hard Rock could have scaled back at this location but was above and beyond most Hard Rock cafes. It was old key west setting located in an old house on Duval. Inside was quiet and nice, the patio was perfect for people watching on Duval.

The HRC Key West's food quality was solid and the whole place has a nice cosy atmosphere with entertaining views on Duval St. and the opposite drinking holes. Quite efficient service lacking slightest bit of enthusiasm, though. I'm really trying to see it positively here as you can tell. Once was okay and enough for this year, that actually goes... More

It's our tradition to always stop at a Hard Rock and have a drink and appetizer (nachos) in whatever city we are visiting. The watermelon margarita is superb! My favorite. The nachos are also a favorite! Bartender very friendly and on top of service

We came in for some appetizers while in town for a few days.. The atmosphere was phenomenal! Although it was on the chilly side while in town, we got to eat inside and enjoy delicious appetizers including the combo plate. My server, Jason, knew exactly what to recommend and was spot on with the drink choice! I was hesitant on... More
