"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.

Great service, great atmosphere and super big portions. No need to order entree or starters, main course enough. Fantastic cocktails and great music

This a cool Hard Rock venue. The ceiling and wall of electric guitars is worth the trip to see. The food was lackluster though. I ordered a burger medium and it came out overly well done. Plus I purchased something at the Hard Rock store and got a $5 coupon for taking a survey. There were no restrictions on the... More

The wait was a good thirty minutes, but we lounged at the bar till our table was ready and soaked in the ambience. The service is typically good and while the whole place is crowded and loud this adds to the atmoshere. Meals were prompt and tasty with very generous servings. Overall a very good experience.

You walk into the gift shop first, then go up the stairs of which the ceiling is all hanging guitars! So cool! Once upstairs one end was open and we could feel a cool breeze, and see Waikiki. Once seated, our waiter was phenomenal, he was an islander and wanted to know all about us. He made us feel important... More

Being in a very touristy place, I expected the prices to be high and the quality low. While I won't say this was cheap, it seemed more in line with other Hard Rock Cafes I have visited in the past. Also, the food quality was quite good. Value?..You bet!
