"A must do in Waikiki!" is one of our most occurring descriptions in Trip Advisor reviews! We've got live music 2x a day that vibes amongst authentic music memorabilia and a guitar wave spanning two floors. Our open-aired Hawaiian design includes a stage for the best bands on the island performing classic and current pop and rock hits from 5-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Enjoy happy hour specials from 3pm-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Our island specialites include fresh fish tacos, Legendary Hawaiian cheeseburgers, and award winning tropical cocktails. And don't forget to pick up one of our Honolulu classic Hard Rock T-shirt or sweatshirt. We are located at the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Beach Walk Avenue in the heart of Waikiki.

The food was quick in arriving and was very tasty. While we were eating a local live band played and... read more

We wanted a little food and a fun drink around 5:00, and headed here. We've been here before and like the American food, music, and open balcony setting. Our table looked over the sidewalk below and we could see locals walking their dogs in the park across the street. It was happy hour, so we got $5 mixed drinks, an... More

Typical hard rock café with great atmosphere and burger based menu. We were lucky enough to be seated on the balcony so had a view of the passing public. Friendly staff who made us most welcome. Food delicious and generously portioned. No dessert needed !

We were trying all different types of food and wanted a hamburger. Great choice. We were near the upstairs deck and had a wonderful breeze. The food was great and the service was good.

We went to hard rock twice on our trip, just for their wings! Service was friendly and food was massive. Highly recommend you try their wings, be warned though they are very spicy :)

Ate here a few times and food and setting were excellent along with the atmosphere being really good. A few things I noticed though, they are angling big time for the tips and give you OTT service to try and squeeze every last buck out of you which is disappointing. (Literally wait for the money while you are counting it)... More
