Description: "A must do in Waikiki!" is one of our most occurring descriptions in Trip Advisor reviews! We've got live music 2x a day that vibes amongst authentic music memorabilia and a guitar wave spanning two floors. Our open-aired Hawaiian design includes a stage for the best bands on the island performing classic and current pop and rock hits from 5-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Enjoy happy hour specials from 3pm-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Our island specialites include fresh fish tacos, Legendary Hawaiian cheeseburgers, and award winning tropical cocktails. And don't forget to pick up one of our Honolulu classic Hard Rock T-shirt or sweatshirt. We are located at the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Beach Walk Avenue in the heart of Waikiki.

“Best Tuna Steak ever!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We received a VIP treatment although my VIP card had expired, but I was unaware of that..
We were given a nice table, received good service and ate great food!
I had the tuna steak and made a few alterations and it was superb!!
I would go back in a heartbeat, unless I had to fly across the globe..

Love all, Serve all...

“Probably the most beautifully decorated Hard Rock of them all!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

The highlight is the guiter feature covering most of the ceiling. The bar is pretty spectacular too. Nice shop, friendly reception and standard menu and service. Lives up to expectations!

“Almost lives upto the name”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Similar the rest of the world.

Issue with one of the meals that the staff sorted, thanks.

Service was not as good as other locations and not localized ( ie no prices on drinks list, explanation given was prices differered at locations?)

Are better options in Waikiki so shop around. Don't rely upon the brand.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Our burgers were great, the server was knowledgeable and friendly, the manager stopped by to say Aloha. Great vibe, great food, and depending on when you're there, it's a great spot to watch a parade going by if you're out on the balcony.

When our server found out it was our honeymoon, he and a few of the staff came by with a sundae and congratulations for us- it was a nice gesture and put a special touch to our first dinner in Honolulu!
