Hard Rock Cafe as it should be!

If wanting to have lunch or just a drink! This is the place! Had the strawberry basil lemonade on a very hot July day! And it really hit the spot. Perfect recommend from the barkeeper. The staff is so friendly and do not forget the store outside.

Very average. If I had to sum up the place, I would have to say "Bland". The music was good, but a little too loud for a lunch time crowd. The waiter was a little too hip, but attentive. The atmosphere was sort of like a cafeteria. Bright and clean which not all places are on the strip. The paraphernalia... More

No love was put into cooking our meals, that's for sure. The food was not good. We visited on a Saturday night. We waited an hour for a seat and when we were seated we waited another 40 minutes for our food. There were empty cleaned tables waiting for patrons. And they were empty for ages. The waiters were so... More

Same as most Hard Rock Cafes, once we ordered our food came out pretty quick. We were asked if we wanted another soda, we declined politely. Our server walked away then gave us the bill/check a minute later. We hadn't even asked for it or even finished our meal! Weren't even offered desserts. Very unhappy.

If you've ever been a Hard Rock it's pretty much the same, somewhat smaller, food was OK but prices were very high. Situated on the end of down town Broadway (comparable to time square in NYC tourist trap). Better off looking for good eats outside of this area where prices/service/food is much better.

I don't even want to dwell too much on this because I am still upset by the service we received this weekend, but I do not recommend this restaurant. We had a group of 13 ladies for a bachelorette party and had priority seating "reserved" for 2 months and it was just terrible. We waited over 40 min. to get... More

This location is updated, it didn't have your typical old Hard Rock Cafe feel like you get at the Orlando location. Not sure if they are all updating, but this stood out to me. It was the same good tasty food, friendly employees, and fun drinks but didn't have the same 'rock n roll' feel as much as other locations.... More

Ok this is my 2nd HRC location I have visited since I been back In the states and my 12th one overall. I visited every HRC while I was in Europe. I always order the Southern Rock drink with the Hurricane Glass. My Southern Rock drink at this Nashville Location was over powered by the sweet and sour mix. OMG... More

The food is really good. Bacon Cheeseburger, Cobb Salad and a great blueberry drink made with tropical red Bull ran us $49.00 plus tip. The food was great, but a little overpriced. Fun environment, great place to hang out with friends.
