Good dinner and service ... Had 30 min wait (we didn't book) but happy to sit out on deck and have a drink, when seated meals came out quickly .... Steak was as we asked and 8yo rated the macaroni cheese .... Busy and noisy but enjoyed the experience anyway

Had dinner last night at Surfers Paradise Hard Rock Cafe. Food as ever of a good standard, service excellent tho due to it's busyness had a 20-30 minute wait for a table. Only complaint was that the cocktails were slightly expensive for what they were. Otherwise a pleasant meal in interesting, noisy surroundings.

Even a lovely gal sat... More

Dined here a fair few times, plus bought things in their downstairs shop, over the years. Last time was in July (later in the evening booking - we arrived on time) with a party of eight. Despite the large inside restaurant looking less than half full - we were informed that the tables were fully booked. Assuming that a party... More

Was on holiday in Gold Coast. Was staying at Hilton Hotel Surfers Paradise. Walked less than 5 minutes to Hard Rock Cafe which is located on the main street. Visited the Hard Rock Shop twice before deciding to buy merchandise. The 2 ladies were very friendly and helpful. Despite testing and trying many pieces of merchandise, they assisted. Finally settled... More

We went there with a bunch of people to celebrate my birthday and I was very disappointed. 1. They had a reggae band playing that night. The sound was quite good, but it was so loud that we couldn't understand each other and almost had to scream on the table. 2. We ordered nachos as appetizers followed by burgers. The... More

We dropped in for hot drinks for adults and cold drinks for those who weren't parents lol. So a tea bag in a tea pot - I have better tea at home. The coffee was probably slightly burnt because it had a funny after taste. The kids liked their cold drinks. I guess this isn't a place for good hot... More
