“A Bit Spendy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The food was good at this one. With the Hardrock that's hit or miss, but it was good. The prices are high but the atmosphere is really cool. Lots of memorabilia from Seattle musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Heart and a lot more. Our server was super nice and we had a great time.

“Great Staff and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

While we were in Seattle we visited Hard Rock Cafe twice because we had such a great experience. Our first visit involved a great waiter who was a wealth of information for two tourists visiting a new town. He had great recommendations both for drinks and meals at Hard Rock but was helpful with helping us get our bearings. The second visit involved watching some awesome music auditions, happy hour and a great chit chat with the Executive Chef, Jess. Just a great experience overall. If you want a laid back location and unwind, this is the place.

“Two floors, one good, one bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Went upstairs to watch rest of a football game with sound on as I was told it was on and I never did see any server so I watched for a bit and then went back downstairs where at least I got service but they did not have sound on. Food pricey but nice drink specials.

“Great Food, Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

After exploring downtown Seattle for a few hours we realized it was late and time to get dinner for us and the kids. It’s nice to find a restaurant that is nicer looking than your average family restaurant, and still has something for the kids, even at 9pm.

We started with the bruschetta which was one of the best I’ve ever had. Never would have thought that from a Hard Rock, but it was awesome. I ordered the Carolina style pulled pork sandwich with fries. The fries were really good but the sandwich was tasty as anything. I liked the fact that it had a different style of BBQ sauce on it and didn’t taste like all the other pulled pork sandwiches out there.

I thought this was also one of the nicer looking Hard Rocks out there, also could be that I grew up on Seattle grunge music so it was almost like a museum of my youth.

Fun and awesome, couldn’t ask for more

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

During our travels we have visited many Hard Rock Cafes and they are always consistently impressive. This one was exactly the same and there was a great atmosphere. Nice central location easy to get to,easy to find. One of the smallest ones we've been in,small amount of memorabilia however what was there was from famous local bands which added to the experience.
