Our 2nd Hard Rock visit (1st was London) so the vibe here was more chilled, staff were courteous and food was delicious (so much more to offer than burgers) The setting on Duval St is perfect and watching the world go by while eating on the terrace was memorable.

Enjoyed the usual standard of food and service here - the portions were enormous and better than we were expecting. Not a fantastic selection for vegetarians but apart from that, it was good.

My fiancé and I went for breakfast. The sign said this is where locals go. B-s--t. Our service was horrible. I WILL never go back!! There was only one other family there that we could see. We both ordered our eggs over medium and over light. They both came out scrambled 😕. The waitress could not get it right. She... More

Went with the family during our visit to the Keys. We were there at around 12:30pm on Thursday and the place was a mess. Tables not cleared, floor was a mess. We sat for 15 minutes before anyone came to the table. We finally ordered and the food came out within a reasonable timeframe. No one was very happy with... More

Stopped in to the Hard Rock in Key West for some appetizers and a couple of drinks at the bar. The bartender was very pleasant. Appetizers which consisted of chicken tenders were just okay.

I made the mistake of taking bratty picky teen age step kids on my vacation to key west. Nobody could agree on anything- except the hard rock. They had cool A/C for me and good wine! & burgers for picky kids. Thank you Hard rock Cafe for making my visit to key west a little better.

Decided a little later than usual to grab a bite and stopped in at Hard Rock. Scott was behind the bar and was awesome. Just an appetizer and a drink and we were good to go. Decided a couple nights later to do the exact same thing and Scott remembered us, even what we liked to drink. That's service!

One of the few places open by 8 a.m. Portions were huge and food very good. A bit pricey but everything is at Keys. Not a view near the water

We had visited on Sunday for the first time and had a wonderful time. Rebecca was our waitress and she was great. I love that the Hard Rock has options for people who are gluten free.
