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!

Quick lunch service and we were happy with all parts of our experience at this location. We have visited this location several times and have always had a good meal.

- my girlfriend and I went to this restaurant for a fast dinner - we are not big fond of meat... And we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meat we ate and the way the food was cooked - the staff was friendly and the location very central - very typical ambiance

The hostess never said a word to us....this after waiting about 5 minutes for her return to the host station. Emotionless expression should not be the face of the restaurant. Our server however, was pleasant and attentive. Our appetizers were average at best (wings and stuffed potato skins)

We were told the wait would be 25 minutes and we were seated 3 minutes later so I guess time moves quicker in the hard rock world! We were put upstairs by ourselves which was fine and we were waited on and received our drinks and meals in a timely manner.Everything was fine and the restauarants condition was satisfactory.All in...

Thank you for taking the time to write us a positive review. I think the upstairs is some of the best seating we have available. The "Wedding" theme of the memorabilia is something that shouldn’t be missed. The next time you are in town please stop by again. More

We went to the hard rock cafe to celebrate my daughter's 15th birthday. We are a family of four with kids of 9 and 15. We reviewed some of the comments and thought it would be a good fancy place to go to. When we came in, the waiter told us that they had a birthday Sunday special, which we... More

As typical as Hard Rock has become lately the one in Key West is no different. We waited 15 minutes for a waitress after being seated in a 50% empty restaurant. After our drink orders were taken we didn't see our drinks for 25 minutes, then our meal. The food was cold and bland. We decided to get a desert.... More
