“one out of four of liked it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

our son was the only one who liked it. my wife ordered a Caesar salad, and got a salad...the Caesar part was questionable. Daughter ordered a Caesar wrap ... again she got a wrap but definitely not Caesar. I played it safe and got the appetizer sampler which was ok. son got a burger, which no one else tasted because he ate it so fast. only had one waitress on staff for lunch?

“FAKE!!! Should be shut down and removed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is not a real Hard Rock Cafe. Stumbled across this when in Heidelberg and knew right away that this was not for real. Even the logo out front is fake. I feel bad for the staff. Some might actually think they are working at a real Hard Rock. The uniforms are not quite right either. I took some friends here and they were shocked and didnt want to go to any other Hard Rock. This is actually hurting their brand. There is a souvenir stand in the back but they only sell shirts and key chains. They are of poor quality as well. The menus are completely different as well. Hard Rocks basically all have the same menu and this one is completely different. The memorabilia on the wall is all horrible as well. Its as if someone took their record collection and just glued them on the wall. No signed pieces either. And the guitars are all cheap replicas. Please at all cost, stay away. Dont give them your money. They are trying to fool you!

“Average Hard Rock Cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We walked in here to see what it looked like, but wasn't really impressed. It just looked like a tiny bar that had been bought by Hard Rock and the name thrown on it. The "store" was literally a few shirts that were put up on a bar in the back. You have to pay to use the restroom if you are not eating there. Shirts are approximately 30 euros a piece or so if you want a good one.

“Beware - Bogus Hard Rock Cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

As a HRC pin collector, I was aware that the official HRC website DID NOT indicate a location in Heidelberg. I did not dine in but I did go to the small shop in the back. The shirts they sell have different tags and the pins do not have the official stamp on the back.

The young lady at the counter was extremely helpful though. And I still picked up a t-shirt. The restaurant is very small. Apparently looking at some of the other comments on tripadvisor, it is surprising to me that HRC allows this restuarant to continue deceiving tourists. As a lawyer, it is shocking that the HRC tradmark is being openly usurped.

“My suggestion? Not worthwhile”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Forced to get the dinner here by my son, the place is small with tables very close each other. The staff was nice but to get a big plate of fingerfood it took more than half an hour (and the place was not so crowded).
I don't care if it looks similar to the tipical hard rock restaraunt to me it's not worthwhile eating there.
