Out family of 12 visited Hard Rock Cafe during a recent visit to Indianapolis. Our server was very patient and too the time to make sure our order was correct. My pulled pork was delicious and the Oreo dessert was yummy!

The Indianapolis Hard Rock is very clean. Employees are very friendly and accommodating. The store is small. Environment is fun with great music and memorabilia. Steak came back more rare than I wanted asking for medium but they quickly got me another one without complaint....More

went with friends and family while in Indy for an event. Loved the food and atmosphere. The staff could have been more attentive, as we didn't get a refill on our drinks until we were almost finished eating. It was so long that we "paused"...More

The facility is typical smaller size Hard Rock; decent food, lots of memorabilia and high prices. This location (as most), is clean and well maintained. Our server, Megan, was friendly and attentive. We had the Local Legend burger, which is actually a tenderloin sandwich. Since...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We are coming into town for the DCI Championships and need a place for a large group of parents to get together for an early lunch on Friday August 12. Everyone would need to be on separate checks but would probably be a group of anywhere from 25-50 people. This is the first time we have all tried to get together so not sure just how many people will be able to make it. But we need a definite place and then can get a more accurate number. Is this something your restaurant could handle on a Friday?
