First off - and maybe I'm just an old coot - but our server went way overboard with the "hail fellow well met" routine - you know, when someone meets you for the first time and acts like you're suddenly bosom buddies? To me that kind of service is a bit creepy - just be reasonably polite, efficient, and otherwise... More

If I could give a review below 1 I would. Unexpected charges, food not cooked as requested, and greeted very rudely! Been here many times in years past but will not come back.

After having bad service at Jimmy Buffett's, I was reluctant to go to Hard Rock. The service was wonderful and the food was decent. If you're going to choose between the two big names, go to Hard Rock.

The Good: Quality of food was very good and portions were "handsome". Burgers are huge! Nachos yummy and chicken fingers crunchy with several dipping sauces. The Bad: The menu is 18 pages. Of the 18 pages 9 did not have prices. So when you order you have to ask: And how much is that? When asking the waitress why her... More

Located right off Duval, this is a great, dependable restaurant that offers classic recipes and a fun environment. I would highly recommend dining on the large veranda for some great people watching!

The food at Hard Rocks is nothing out of the ordinary but it is good. We always like to stop at one if there is one in the area. The thing I liked was this one was a converted house. Cool on the inside with the hard wood floors. You can eat on the "porch" if the weather is good.... More

Love Hard Rock but they are beginning to rest on their laurels in Key West. Service was decent and the restaurant is in good shape as we love to watch people on Duval. Problem is the menu is getting worn out and really old. I go to Key West for great chefs and it looks like this place is getting... More

I have visited Hard Rock at many locations around the world and have grown to expect excellent service and good value quality food - and have never been let down, until now. I cannot comment about the quality of the food at this location as we left before ordering due to the atrocious service offered on the evening of Sunday... More
