From the setting, to the open door dining, to the neat guitars all over the roof and walls this place is great for a casual dinner. Food is top class tasty, service is great and it definitely worth a try. Only downside would be the...More

This being our second time in Waikiki, we have previously eaten at the Hard Rock Café and our impression then did somewhat decrease with our recent experience. The restaurant itself is lovely and large with indoor and outdoor seating options and is located in a...More

Had dinner with my wife & daughter(vegetarian) at hard rock, shared a brilliant starter that we all could share. Then we ordered our own mains and the most amazing desert. They had an amazing band playing a range of covers who were terrific.

All those glittering guitars displayed at the ceiling really caught my eye. They look like guitar shaped stars. Prices for drinks and tacos were slashed during the happy hour. Listening to the live band playing while we spend the night away is just fine. Everything...More

The restaurant and staff were professional. The restaurant has a nice collection of memorabilia and there is a nice patio. Overall rather corporate but the food was good to very good. Would not go again, but okay for a lunch once.

Just standard middle of the road food and service - nothing special about, but nothing awful either. It's one of the few mid range places in Waikiki - most restaurants are significantly more expensive. We were seated near the stage - unfortunately once the live...More

Went to Hard rock for dinner on a visit to Hawaii. Food was good and the live band on a Thursday night was good. Kelly our waitress was excellent.

Hi H-Woman-in-hawaii! I know there is live music, rock as the name suggests but I am unsure of the dancing on weekdays. It is very casual dress code; we just wore t shirts and shorts.

Description
"A must do in Waikiki!" is one of our most occurring descriptions in Trip Advisor reviews! We've got live music 2x a day that vibes amongst authentic music memorabilia and a guitar wave spanning two floors. Our open-aired Hawaiian design includes a stage for the best bands on the island performing classic and current pop and rock hits from 5-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Enjoy happy hour specials from 3pm-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Our island specialites include fresh fish tacos, Legendary Hawaiian cheeseburgers, and award winning tropical cocktails. And don't forget to pick up one of our Honolulu classic Hard Rock T-shirt or sweatshirt. We are located at the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Beach Walk Avenue in the heart of Waikiki.
