I have eaten there twice, August 2012 and April 2014. I have never known a restaurant go down hill so far, so fast. This trip it was terrible. They are cramming people in with chairs in aisle ways. We had to ask to be moved, which fortunately was possible. The food was terrible. The starters were warm at best, the... More

The Hard Rock at Universal is a huge place with apparently 1,100 seats. Its got a really nice atmosphere and very happy staff who would break into song and dance to the various songs being played. The food is what you expect - not the best but good quality and no complaints from any of us. The service was terrific... More

The Hard Rock franchise is was it is and the Orlando venue is exceptional and huge. The amount of memorabilia is amazing and the pink Cadillac above the bar is outstanding. BUT! Went yesterday evening after a busy day at the Universal Parks (HR is situated between Studios and Adventure Island) hoping for a quick beer and a burger. We... More

We booked a table for 4, 2 adults 2 kids. Seated within 15min but they tried to put us in what can only be described as an old function area at the back 'awful full stop'. Luckily the waiter moved us to the main restaurant. Our waiter was friendly, informative and attentive. Food ordered but unfortunately the 'sizzling' fajitas came... More

My family and I had a good time dining at hard rock. Our server was excellent. The food was very good. Had a great view from the upstairs window seat. Will definitely go back.

We collect magnets so visit any and every hard rock cafe we find. Decided to eat here this time too and we're grabbed right away to pose for a photo. Not very glam both looking hot and bothered. Felt the need to purchase the photo too but I guess that added to the experience. Food same good quality as ever

I ordered the pulled chicken sandwich. Twice it came out cold - I'm guessing they don't use a food probe to ensure their food has reached temperature before sending it out. They did take my meal off the bill and replace it but by the time the third one came out the rest of my party had finished eating, no... More

We arrived after spending the day at Universal. We had a few minutes to wait before being seated. The hostess was extremely pleasant. Our first waiter seemed to love her job but it was time for her to get off so she brought Tracey over to finish taking care of us. She was so much fun. She made the dining... More

After visiting many hard rock cafe's we were looking forward to a family dinner here. The waiting staff were polite but unfortunately a member of staff taking photos was extremely rude to us. We complained but there was no apology and it was ignored. Dinner was ok. My burger was burnt and my husbands undercooked. I would never visit again... More

If you're visiting Universal this is one of the best dining options outside the park. As typical a little pricey but the portions are huge. Consider sharing if you're visiting with the family.
