We had just gone there for a cocktail, but the menu looked great and we had not tried the fried shrimp yet. The cocktails were great and shrimp was delicious, and meal was so big I had a doggy bag for a snack later on. The prices were pretty reasonable and service very friendly.

Had a great meal at this Hard Rock. First time I'd ever been to a HR and was pleasantly surprised. I had ribs which was a meal and a half. Was on my own so I enjoyed the atmosphere at the bar. Great service and fantastic guitar display on the roof.

I have dined here a couple of times & enjoyed both experiences. The new restaurant in Waikiki is in a much better location than the old one, and the open air atmosphere is really nice. I sure wish HRC would bring back the hickory stack salad. It was my favorite!

How can you not visit any Hard Rock Cafe when you're in town and the one in Waikiki is no exception. From the friendly greeting of the staff to the funky guitars littering the walls and ceilings (no they don't belong to anyone famous they were all rejects apparently) and the standard Hard Rock menu - it's easy to see...

Great location. Try to get a seat upstairs and outside. The food is typical Hard Rock fare. As it is a chain, the food is consistent with other Hard Rock cafe's regarding menu and quality.

My husband and I were bar hopping for the night and this was one of our stops. I've been to hard rock cafes all over the world before and this location was just like the others. Good live music, great drinks, delicious food totally worth the money. And the service at the bar was excellent.

Okay, so we're Hard Rock groupies. We visit the Hard Rock Cafe in every major city we travel to (assuming there is one there). The menus are generally very similar/the same each time, so it's usually the atmosphere, service and memorabilia that drive us to always seek these places out. I don't usually review them, because they are pretty much... More

Nine of us all had different meals and I think everyone thought there meal was good. Really liked the open air atmosphere of the restaurant. The service was very good and everyone was quite friendly. Thought the prices were a little high even for Waikiki.
