“A little sub par for a "snack bar"”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We had eaten there before and it was a little better. It appears that they've taken some items off the menu, and raised the prices on others. Not too bad for a quick meal or snack.

“Fun atmosphere, good burgers”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

It's a Hard Rock - pretty much what you'd expect but this one has a nice airy and comfy feel taking you away from the craziness of the casino floor right outside the door. It is LOUD though. Great music, but loud.

Danakate,

Thanks for your feedback, and I'm glad you were able to find some respite within our walls. Our volume will always be a tick above the norm... It is mellower during the daytimes and the weeknights though.

Thanks again!

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This café is located behind the card room at Foxwoods. Bumped into it by accident. Foxwoods is so huge, it'll take forever to see everything. Burgers, fries, soups etc. were just great. Other food dishes just as good. Very friendly. Just wish it was easier to get to. You should find the place for you will be very glad you did.

“Did not live up to the hype”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

I have never been to the Hard Rock Cafe and was looking forward to seeing what the place was all about. My boyfriend and I got seated right away, in an incredibly tight booth, and the waitress came right over. We both ordered burgers medium. Both of them came out rare, which wasn't an issue for us. The burger had zero seasoning. The bacon was actually charred at the end, which I have never seen before. Fries were ok. I had asked for a side of ranch and the waitress forgot, and was only reminded when she saw me after chatting with her co-workers at the bar for a good 10 minutes. Just disappointed all around and will not be back.

Roadtripper,

Sorry to disappoint on your first visit to a Hard Rock Cafe. Our burgers are one of the things we are most proud of, and it sounds like we didnt deliver on our normal experience for you. If you would like to discuss further please feel free to contact me at the cafe. 860-312-7626

Thanks for your feedback,

“Great casual place!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

The food was good, although I don't like the side options that they offer. They could offer better ones, the garlic mashed potatoes were not tasty in my opinion. The staff was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was good, I love all of the TV's everywhere. The bar is awesome and huge, the chairs at the bar are comfortable and high, love them! I love the fact that I can go online and make a table reservation, although I don't love that I can't do it on Saturdays.
