Well, what poor service, and im sorry to say but food was not much better. The music was so loud people were shouting to have conversation over the meals, and the service was really very poor by the waitress serving our table.

Good location just down from our hotel. We always try a hard rock where ever we happen to be. The food is always good, with large portions and relatively reasonable prices. There is always plenty to look at and there was live music. The waitress was bubbly but speed of service was not great. My wife never had her second... More

Based on Times Square at 5 star, I give this Hard Rock 4 star. Limited memorabilia but live music and good atmosphere. Fab good as always and good reasonably priced. Loved Rockstar martini cocktail. Parking a nightmare as this is centre of Surfers Paradise.
