Good location on a Beale Street. We decided to eat here on our first night in Memphis. Food was great but our server was very disappointing. She made us feel very uncomfortable in ordering Alcohol, kept stating that she did not drink and then brought over our check with our meal, so no chance for desert or further drinks. Would... More

Good location right on Beale Street. Food is about the same as any Hard Rock. Service was fine. Memorabilia is always fun to look at. Worth stopping in if you are a fan of Hard Rock Cafe in general.

Being on Beale street, I thought we would go in for a drink, and look at the famous Lansky Apparel, should not have bothered unless you like tee-shirts, the cocktails were 90% ice, and the music videos were not what we expected, not blues, but bluedy loud(forgive the pun)

I love Hard Rock Cafes but this wasn't good. Food was ok, nothing special. Anaemic Bloody Mary. But it was the music that was really dire: pop, 80s disco, rap - not the usual good rock music we've come to expect from this chain. Absolutely no reason to come here when you have the Blues City Cafe over the road.

The Hard Rock Café is a staple and definitely cool for live music in most cities however in Memphis, we heard better, more relevant Memphis blues bands on the rest of Beale and the open mic at Hard Rock wasn't that exciting. Worth stopping in to see the memorabilia but I would get food and entertainment elsewhere.

Shelliu, I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience with us. We're excited that we have one of the busiest/best live music programs on the street and also are the only scratch-recipe kitchen on Beale (anyone can do frozen to fried premade food so this is just one way we distinguish ourselves from the other venues along Beale). Thank... More

We didn't eat here however the service and music was outstanding. We heard billy Gibson on his harmonica and he was absolutely sensational. A must for anyone visiting

Server brought the wrong burger as he didn't feel like writing down the order. RIbs were OK. Service was VERY slow and they weren't crowded.

I took my aunt, whom is developmentally delayed, to the restaurant for her birthday while we were in Memphis. Our server, Melvin, was top notch and rolled out the red carpet for her and I. He was caring, considerate and kind. The food was excellent and well worth the money paid.
