Felt that we were rushed when we were there. We had just finished our mains and were handed the bill. We did wish to have cocktails and deserts but went elsewhere. This is probably the poorest service I’ve ever had at a hard rock and...I’ve been to manyMore

Reminds me of Chili's. I've had T.V. dinners with better flavor. The place feels like it is managed by a bunch of teenagers. Really loud, obnoxious, teenage girl bubblegum music blasting from a small D.J. setup right inside the door. Hard rock used to be...rock and roll themed. I asked for a margarita, was being pushed for a skinny something or another. I just wanted a good old classic margarita. The drink I got tasted like it had no syrup in it. More like a bitter chilton. The food was terribly overpriced considering the quality. We chose Hard Rock Cafe over Kid Rock's. We had to wait forever for our ticket. I had my card sitting on the edge of the table for more than 10 minutes. When the waitress finally came by, she chose to clear the table before cashing is out. Overall experience was a huge disappointment.More

Not a wonderful experience. No toilet paper in the women’s stall I picked (didn’t think I would have to look first), my cocktail glass is dirty, the wait staff is less than enthusiastic and we got out of here as quickly as possible. Please do...better.More

This was by far the worst meal I have had in Nashville. I took my family last night and the food was not good. The burgers were overcooked and cold. For $20 you'd think you would get something more than a sad burger and a...small handful of fries. The waiter was polite and attentive but did forget the salad we ordered too. I will not be going back to eat here. Plenty of other restaurants with far better food.More

We were looking for a restaurant for dinner that was a little quieter than the rest of the bars around Broadway and this place suited us nicely. They did have someone solo playing there and was a nice change to the full band experience on...Broadway. Good food and service. Catered for all types and ages.More

We arrived 50 minutes before our reservation time. Restaurant was not crowded. Host said wait will be at least 45 minutes, is that alright ? We then mentioned our reservation, and he then said wait will now be about 40 minutes, you will definitely be...seated by your reservation time. Pretty short and rude ! We were buzzed in 10 minutes, before we could pay for our drinks. Waiter was the same, short & curt, not very friendly. Rushed us to order, food was sub-par. Nachos not even Taco Bell quality. Three cocktails were over $50. To sum it up, over priced, bad service, not good food. I’d say don’t waste your time, even if you can get a reservation!More

Disorganised chaos. We booked a table for 8 people this evening for a Birthday. We were met with complete surprise. Overcharged for drinks & our meals were all messed up. Our server, Hunter, was lovely and most apologetic but the overall experience was totally unsatisfactory!...Worst Hard Rock We have ever been in!!More

GROUPON CERT FOR ACOUSTIC MENU ITEMS good for Entree, Dessert and non-Al beverages, Taxes and Gratuity. I think it was $38 for each meal. The burgers, onion rings and fries were good. It took a while but we were happy to receive our meals after...a long day traveling. We also were able to get the dessert to go and enjoyed it later that evening while taking it easy. The issue was when we went to leave we mentioned that the gratuities were included and the waitresses didn't believe us. We ended up leaving without adding a gratuity since it was clearly stated on the certificate, required to be printed and given upon arrival. They left and went to talk to the manager about our claim. I felt bad walking out like that but clearly their staff wasn't informed of the deal made with Groupon. I have checked the coupon many times since and gratuities were indeed included. With all that was included, we would purchase this deal again and would point it out the gratuities situation to the waitress upon seating to clear up any misunderstanding.More

Ordered a fiesta chicken salad. Chicken was not cooked and it was drenched in dressing. Waitress was very nice, I felt bad for her. We weren't charged for our food. We went elsewhere.

While I often steer clear of reviewing Hard Rock Cafe locations - considering their adherence to a consistent standard which usually guarantees an experience ranging from good to exemplary - my recent encounters at their Nashville branch compel me to make an exception. Nestled amidst...the bustling Broadway Street, which boasts a plethora of dining options, this establishment has quickly become our go-to spot. In a landscape where the dining spectrum can range from stellar to subpar, this Hard Rock Cafe has proven itself as a reliable oasis. Every dish we've sampled has not only met but frequently surpassed our culinary expectations. Service-wise, they've been nothing short of prompt and attentive. As for the live music, Nashville's rich tapestry of talent means that it's easy to be discerning. While the performance during our initial visit wasn't quite to my taste, our subsequent experience was redeemed by a remarkably talented young performer. It's refreshing to have a dependable choice amidst the cacophony of Broadway's offerings.More

Check your bill very carefully. The waitress charges us over $12.00 for ea. beer that should be $8.25. We ordered two beers each (4 total) and the waitress charge us over $12.00 for ea. beer. When we got the bill we questioned it and she...said, oh you can keep the glass and pick up the glass at the store. We didn't want the glasses but if we didn't check the bill carefully we would of been over charged. They charge you for the glasses even though you haven't ordered it that way. What a rip off!!!!More

Had never been to a Hard Rock Cafe before, went to this one in Nashville mid week. Got right in, waiter very nice, memorabilia neat and music good. Food very mediocre and pricey. Probably would not eat there again.
