“Surprisingly good food”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I was surprised with the quality of food that was served, in a good way. Typical Hard Rock café setting with memorabilia on the walls. The had a nice food and drink menu and reasonably priced. Good place to eat before a concert across the street.

“The Rise Restaurant & Bakery”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Met a friend here for dinner. Both my husband's dinner and mine were very mediocre. Would not recommend. I had the chicken salad sandwich and my husband had the roast beef sandwich. I think our waiter had a problem as he brought wrong drinks twice and one person got something totally different from their order.

“Rock 'n Roll....more like the Blues!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

No old time rock and roll here! This is in the Hard Rock Casino - so you would THNIK they would know how to do it right - kinda like a flagship opportunity. First it looks like a fast food joint vs. a Cafe - there is very little atmoshere here. Don't try to eat at the bar as we did - each seet has a poker machine that take almost all the space. We had the Nachos - Cheese Whiz pump vs. real cheese - and they were $12.95 for god's sake. Not worth the step in if you ask me! This place is "Bad To The Bone......Baaaa Bad..... Bad To The Bone!"

“Get the burger and get Ryan to wait on you”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Went to the Hard Rock on Monday June 3, 2013. I had not been to a HRC in probably 15 years and my expectations were low. I was very pleasantly surprised. First of all, our waiter, Ryan I think was his name, was VERY friendly, went over the best items on the menu and told us all about how they cook and prepare each item we asked about. A+ for him. He suggested one of the burgers so I got the cheddar, bacon, onion, bbq burger and I am glad that I did. It was delicious. The crazy mac-n-cheese side was awesome too! If you have not been to a HRC in a while, go here and give it a try.
