“Very well appointed, with great atmoshere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We went here during our week in Hollywood and was amazed at the size of the place. It had mezzanine level that made it interesting. The service was excellent and the food was served prompt and was impressive according to all 4 of us.The manager spent about 20 minutes talking to us and was proud to give us a presentation on their new "Computer Pad" menus. The table setting includes one at each place. I didn't require my reading glasses to swipe through all the details accompanied by photos. You simply order what you want and it is sent via WiFi, then delivered without delay. This system eliminates staff wasting time while customers chatter about the menu. While deciding what to eat, you can order a drink with the touch of the finger. The location is great, near/next to the Highland Center and Dolby Theater, Hollywood.

Was a great meal and the atmosphere was superb. We got to see Jim Morrison's pants! The service was excellent. Would go back any time.

“Just another Hard Rock.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Drinks were typical and expensive. Not bad service but not great either. The burger was OK. The musical memorabilia on the walls is the best part. Go for the fun you'll get just looking at the walls.

“Nice, crowded and less clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

A small waiting time is included if there is no reservation... Food was good and service also. I have a small complain about cleanliness. Is pretty busy, I know, but they should give more attention to that.

“Great Buzz - Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This place was buzzing! even though it was amazingly busy we were seated quickly and our servers were really attentive and helpful. We were tight for time as we were going to see a show but the servers took this on board and provided all of our food and drinks quickly. Nachos as a starter are as always amaxing but one portion is enough for 3 people - be warned - they are very moreish! Corrs Light is a great refreshing beer so we all went for that - and got free glasses as souveniers!
Our burgers were tasty and plentiful and came each with a huge stack of fries and dressings. Please make sure you are hungry here as you need a really empty tummy to eat these portions!
Location is great and is about 3 steps form the Dolby Theatre and a 3 min walk to the Chinese Theatre.
Donations to charity were requested but no pressure put on us at all. Sadly charities all need help in these hard times and I am gald to see Hard Rock are at least trying to make life better for others that aren't so fortunate. Tips are also a way of life in the States so I am surprised when reviewers complain about this?
All in all a great place to visit - Hollywood is busy and buzzing just like Hard Rock and if you want fun and pazzazz go here.
