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

Save your money, even when others push you to attend. This is an overpriced tourist attraction serving average food. You may not even get what you order. When the kitchen was out of one of the appetizers on our sampler platter, they just made a less expensive substitution and delivered it without asking.

Thanks for your review. I'm sorry that the kitchen didn't have the item you ordered as promised. Next time, please ask to speak to a manager so we can make the situation right and get you the exact items you ordered. Hope you'll give us another try sometime soon. More

When we travel I always enjoy going to a Gard Rock Cafe and Denver is no exception. Had outdoor seating. Wait staff was extremely pleasant and service was prompt. The only disappointing part was that we were warned to watch our stuff as people have been known to grab and run. So I was a little apprehensive while we were... More

We went here before a business reception. I had a very short time to eat and be ready for the reception. The service was fast and the food was great. This is a can't miss in Denver.

Was part of a group of about forty in the private room upstairs and choices of food were very good. The food itself was well prepared and for a large group, fairly well presented. The company made the meal but overall the cafe did very well.

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.
