Went here when we were visiting Denver. It was right down the street from our hotel. The service and food were average and not worth the price. You aren't really paying that price because of the quality you are paying because of the name on the front of the building. We won't be going back here or to any other... More

I was expecting a huge HRC, but this one was comparable to the one in DC. Service was good and the food was too. I was surprised that there wasn't a wait on Friday night.

The Hard Rock Cafe is a go-to spot for me in Denver when I have a group of clients in town with different dining preferences. Everyone can find something on their menu, the food is usually well prepared, and the service - well - sometimes they get slammed and it gets slow.

For once, this restaurant from that ubuquitous chain had both good food and music.... which was at a volume we could even carry on dinner conversation. The manager dropped by and seemed interested in our visit and impression of the restaurant. Nice job!

We received excellent service there, very clean. We were walking the 16th street mall & decided to pop in for some drinks only, so I can not review the food.

This was an average place to east. If you are in the mood for salad or a burger this is for you. The club sandwich was good with lots of meat. I think the HRC in Dallas is much better.

We came to the Hard Rock for dinner while in Denver for a conference. I'm not sure if they realized a conference of 20,000 people was in town because they were severely understaffed and got slammed with customers. The food was good and our waitress was very apologetic that the food was so slow to come out of the kitchen.... More

Description
Denver was founded in 1858, the first spot where gold was discovered in Colorado during the heyday of the Gold Rush. While still firmly rooted in its Western past, modern-day Denver spotlights sharp skyscrapers, clean streets and literally dozens of parks that give it a much younger and more progressive feel in the new millennium. Although nicknamed the "Mile High City," Denver doesn't lie in the mountains at all. The city itself is completely flat, sitting on high plains with the Rocky Mountains as a majestic backdrop. Stop by the Hard Rock Cafe Denver the next time you're visiting the "Mile High City"! Located in Denver Pavilions, this two-story walking mall on 16th Street was recently rated Denver's #1 tourist attraction, but that doesn't mean locals don't hang out here, too! We're the #1 spot for everyone, and as always, the Hard Rock Cafe is easy for everyone to find. Just look for the 20-foot neon guitar and spread the word that there's still gold to be found inside our doors! (Gold-album recording artist memorabilia, that is.) So if dry mountain air has left you parched, unhitch your wagon and have a seat at our handcrafted oak bar for the tastiest drinks and the best grub this side of the Mississippi. No horses inside though, please, just the occasional pony keg.
