“Strategically located in Darling Harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

If you are walking along Darling Harbour, you will definitely not miss this place. It is a must for me to visit and HRC whenever I travel around the world as I keep their magnets as a collection at home.

“Great food, staff and view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

In time to request a table outside to watch the Vivid display in Darling Harbour. Our for the evening was Tres, who was very attentive and friendly. My husband and I had a bowl of onion rings, and each ordered the S.O.B. Burger. Delicious and filling, the fries were also perfectly cooked. This is the 3rd time we've eaten here and will always recommend it.

We sat outside, nice view of darling harbour. Great burgers and brisket for those missing Texas. Noisy as expected, us style servers that actually get it done.

“Fun night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Had a great time at hard rock, called in for happy hour, staff were fantastic all good humoured, and entertaining. Ended up staying for dinner had a table with a view out over the harbour, food was ok, drinks were two for one, happy hour from 3pm to 7pm is a definite bonus. The décor is amazing, plenty to see and take in. The staff definitely make it a great night out.
