Description: In a city with so much to see and do, the main attraction for locals, as well as tourists, is Hard Rock Cafe Orlando. Located at Universal Studios Orlando in the CityWalk entertainment complex, Hard Rock Cafe Orlando is the biggest HRC in the world. With large, statuesque pillars, it stands majestically as a Roman Coliseum of rock, and boasts more pieces of music memorabilia than any other location. The site includes not only a vast, multi-level cafe, but also Hard Rock Live Orlando, a 3,000-person concert/party venue.

“The usual hard rock deal…”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

… in the largest HRC in the world. There is a lot of memorabilia on the walls to see and you are sure to find your favourite from the Beetles to Guns N Roses.

The food is good quality, served well by enthusiastic staff. If you’ve been to a hard rock before or are a first timer then this will not disappoint. The only downside with this and other HRCs is that I feel the price of the food and drink is a little high for what you get and compared to nearby competitors.

I recommend the hot wings with heavy metal sauce (quite hot) and any of their burgers.

“Take the Tour!!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

As Orlando native and rock fan I'd always meant to go to Hard Rock Cafe, but somehow had never gotten around to it. I finally went with my family for my birthday last week and on top of dinner we took to backstage tour. IT. WAS. AMAZING!!! Randy Rock was our tour guide and was fantastic. Obviously loves his job and shows. It was probably my best birthday ever, got to hold one Nikki Sixx's old bass's, Frank Zappa's guitar case, a cymbal played and signed by Vinnie Paul and stand in the booth where Elvis recorded his very 1st record ever! I can't recommend it enough!

“don't go to any activity at Orlando Hard Rock Cafe”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Dear. Mr. Hamish Dodds (CEO) and Mr. John Galloway:




Today I spent since 7:00am to 07:00pm waiting in line under 91 degree hot and humid weather for a Hard Rock Café Orlando concert " Lana del Rey", I'm a 60 years old handicap 300 pound male who was just taking care of my young 15,17, and 18 years old daughters and son who want to see the concert, all was disrupted when we witnessed a total Chaos and a lack of security.

The concert was in your establishment The Hard Rock Café Orlando and besides the concert organism and their security, your "Name" was included as responsible of this Chaos.




After waiting so long in line at the end they decided to let the late on line to get inside first so people who arrived 15 minutes before they open the doors to the concert were gratified with the early entrance over the people who was waiting there for over 12 hours.




That Chaos produced a very angry respond and a very delicate security event where any of my family could be harmed permanently just for a lack of organization, professionalism, common sense and lack of sensitivity for any normal person further more for a handicapped like me.




Obviously I will declined my Rewards VIP card #1893403103 and resigned to the membership and will be voicing my complaint in any way I can to prevent any other family to expose to danger in your facilities in any other activity.




Thanks for let me know the kind of people that both of you are.




Thanks.
