Great food and service. We had never been to a Hard Rock Cafe. Our friends took us there. Food was good and quick. We didn't have to wait long for a table

Arrived for dinner after conference day, only 8 of us, but very poor service right from the start. Couldn't get our drinks order correct, then service staff got in a huff. One of our groups meal didn't even get served...we shared leftovers with him! The quality of the food...well as I have never been in a HRC before was just... More

We had the worst service I have ever experienced on the 15th of October. The waitress was more interested in being ridiculously loud with drunk patrons at another table than serving us at all. We had to ask for drinks repeatedly, her demeanor was absolutely awful, her behavior encouraged the drunk men to scream across the restaurant, thus making all... More

Explained the components of the drink and approx measurements; he managed to pull it all together, with even having to head into the store room to... More

If you just want an easy night out with predictable food, you can't go wrong. Good for teens and those nights when you don't have expectations of grandeur.

Place had rock memorabilia, friendly staff who all looked genuinely happy, I loved the music playing on the many screens everything from nirvana to the doors. Food was the icing on the cake. My teens wanted to eat there every night of our stay :)

We have eaten is many hard rocks around the world. We were very disappointed with our meal and the ridiculous prices we paid for it in this location. The food was below average pub food which we could have paid half the price for down the road. The lift was broken so we had to carry a fast asleep 3... More
