Very friendly-it was our first time in a Hard Rock Cafe. Hostess invited us to order, then wander around and look at the displays. Food was tasty, main floor dining with lots of screens showing music videos. Upstairs is more bar style service with live music.

My family ate here on Saturday evening at about 5:30pm... myself, my husband, 2 boys aged 13 and 9, and my 2yr old daughter. We were seated immediately downstairs, and the waitress was very attentive. The music was just right for what I think must be the typical family dining hour :) not too loud... the boys loved the selections,... More

We were in Nashville for my daughter's 14th birthday, and she wanted to eat at Hard Rock. The food and atmosphere was terrific, but our waitress, Elise, was the best part of the experience. She had a great personality and made sure we had everything we needed. By the time our meal was over, we felt like we had made... More

We visit the HRC wherever we see one, so Nashville would be no exception. We were very disappointed in this one. Nashville, you’re the Music City! Where are the guitars on the walls? Where are the photos and other music paraphernalia? Where is the loud music and all the myriad videos? Granted, they had a few bits and pieces here... More

Was in Nashville for business, and figured I would hit up an old standby. Hard rock is always a good stop, and Nashville was no exception. Food was good, service was great and the memorabilia on the walls was significant to Nashville history.

I called ahead letting the Hard Rock know we had a group of 26 (12 basketball players at one table and 14 parents at another). No reservations were possible, because it was 5:02pm and that portion of the company was closed for the day. They reassured me that a group this size was not a problem, as groups of 50... More

Stopped in for early dinner while traveling. Convenient location at end of the main drag of tourist area of Nashville. Food was good as well as friendly staff. Perfect for a bite to eat before trying out the local bars/honkytonks.

Our server, Chris?, was great. He really made us feel welcome and special. The food was good with generous portions. This was one of the quietest Hard Rocks we have been to (6 including this one). In a good location next to the river and handy for all the shops and bars on Broadway. There was a live band on... More

We were in Nashville for two weeks and because of the service from the staff Tisha, Miranda, Faith, John, and Courtney we ended up going here 4 times, even on July 04 2014 for the fireworks. Thanks everyone you truly made us feel welcome.
