“Burgers with Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

If you like rock and roll, and like to listen while you eat, this is the place to dine. Evenings are the best.

“Great place and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Hard Rock's everywhere have always been good in my experience, however, this one was exceptional ONLY because of the magnificent waitress that we had. I'm sorry that I cant remember her name, but she was so personable, chatty, and very very attentive to us as well as our kids. <she had a purple color hair I think> She gave us some great tips on the area to visit, things that her own kids like, and all the while still paying very close attention to our drinks, food, and even her other tables near us. She was just great.

Hard Rock's food typically is on the higher side for price, but that's no secret. Its the atmosphere that you're paying for. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and even took the time to walk around both floors and take pictures and look at all the memorabilia. It was fun.

We walked in off the street and were immediately seated with no wait. Incredible service!

“Don't waste the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Decorated well. Ordered a hurricane..... Wasn't even close to one. Food was less than average for hard rock. Value is terrible. The nachos were the bright spot of the meal.

“Incredible atmosphere and salmon to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We stopped in during spring break since it was getting a little chilly outside. The kids really enjoyed it, especially my oldest who had heard that Avenged Sevenfold's former drummer, "The Reverend's" drum set was in a Hard Rock Cafe, and it turned out to be this one. Everybody enjoyed their food, and since I am watching my calories, I opted to get the salmon. It was incredible! So glad we went, and it will be on our list for the next time we are in the area.
