We come to Hard Rock every time we visit the coast, and have been to three others around the world. Atmosphere is great (if a little loud at times #grandpa!), food is tasty, location is super convenient. A must-try.

Went there to purchase the Hard Rock Cafe Surfers Paradise shirt (maroon in colour). As always, it is hard to find small size shirts because they are normally out of stock.

We like the food at the Hard Rock. Bit on the expensive side, but good service & great meals. Will visit again.

Bar staff are friendly and the cocktails are awesome. A must to visit if staying in Surfers. Long Island Iced Teas really pack a punch! If you buy the large they give you a free cocktail glass.

it dropped by on a Sunday evening on our first night at the Gold coast. We were prepared to wait as we knew it would be busy-had great cocktails and the service was good. The food was amazing as was the atmosphere so it made our first night most memorable.

Well, where do I start! We arrived here as a family of six for an evening meal. After being seated, it was a fair bit of time before anyone came over to us, when they did, it was the waitress apologising for keeping us waiting and advising she would be back shortly. Once we had our food order taken, we... More

For our last night on holiday and the eve of Jess's 16th, we visited the Hard Rock Cafe. I've never been to one so it was an experience for me too. Nice to see the old memorabilia and enjoyed some of the vids on continuous view. The service was friendly, quite American in style, as was the menu. The food... More

Just visited. Service was prompt, attentive and helpful. Burgers ordered by two on our table were very good and comparable to other Hard Rock Cafes around the world. New York Strip steak with shrimp was excellent and the child's chicken tenders got the thumbs up. We've eaten at HRC in London, Paris, New York. Washington, Niagara Falls, and LA so... More
