Overall a good experience

We arrived around dinner time so we expected a wait for a table. We were told 20-25 minutes which isn't too bad. We were given a buzzer and went to the upstairs bar to have a drink while we waited. We waited 15 minutes before someone asked us if we wanted anything to drink. We both ordered... read more

Trued to get acknowledged at the bar right inside the door upon arrival. I went over to one bartender and she was doing the service bar and then sat down. Mijo came over but didn't say a word like be right with you. When he came back he only said "has anybody waited on you?"NOT hello and welcome. And when... More

This is a huge Hard Rock in Nashville but I expected it to be better. I ordered pasta and ribs and to be honest it wasn't that tasty at all. This place wasn't even busy for evening which usually there is a wait.

The food was good! The burgers were big, the shrimp was delicious (though they only gave me 8 pieces for $17.95) & the hot fudge brownie was awesome (which it should have been for $9.95). The bill for 4 of us was $84.00. Our server, Elaine, was very friendly. The upstairs has a bar, band & outdoor area that has... More

I've been to the Hard Rock Cafe in Louisville, KY and Baltimore, MD, and this is definitely the better of the three. The other two are extremely crowded which makes it hard for you to look at all the memorabilia. And speaking of memorabilia, this locale had some great stuff! Our server was very entertaining and the food was delicious.... More

The Seminoles have dropped the ball on their cafes. The casinos are awesome, but the core restaurants suffer from underuse of the brand and a weakening menu. Profits over excitement. I get it , but I won't be back.. They are not the same. Nashville is underused and uninspiring of the brand..

This particular Hard Rock Cafe is very underwhelming! I had been to many different locals before and this one was not impressive! The food was horrible! The ambiance was dispointing as there was not much rock and roll pariphonalia to look at as with other Hard Rock locations. Also they only played one Rock and Roll song the whole time... More

I wanted to something special with my son of 18. So I planned a road trip with him. I wanted to give him some memories of him and dad. So I asked him where it was he wanted to eat? First words out of his mouth was the Hard rock. Parking was so easy. I would urge any one who... More
