Description: "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.

We visited as a family of four adults. They were the best burgers we had in the nine nights we stayed in Waikiki. The service was outstanding. The ambience was really good. We would recommend to others.

With all the restaurants on the beach strip packed and 40-60 mins wait, we strolled up the street and walked right in to the Hard Rock. Great food, good fun, but a bit on the load side. I suppose it is the Hard Rock though, right? Massive meals, and good stuff for the kids including the coloring.

I've been in loads of Hard Rocks and this one is somewhere in the middle of the pack. Anywhere around here is going to be a bit better just because of where it's located, but these guys weren't really trying very hard. Then again, they didn't have to-the place is jammed all the time just because of what and where... More
