“Good Food”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Great food, wonderful atmosphere, if you are from the SOUTH remember they don't have the HOUSE WINE of the SOUTH, you have to sweeten your tea when it comes to the table. :)

“Food and Service were Great”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I recently had dinner at the Hard Rock Café in Indianapolis. We were seated promptly after entering the restaurant. We were met with pleasant smiles and wonderful service. There were eleven of us. Our orders for appetizers and drinks were taken and it was not long before we were served. We ordered our main courses and we were served pretty much at the same time. The ribs and chicken were fantastic. The appetizers were also great. The people with me were happy with their food. Dessert was ordered and everyone was happy with their dessert choices. I would go again when I am visiting Indianapolis. Great restaurant, great people, and excellent service.

“Not for blacks”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Me, my uncle, and friend was there 11/9/13 on a lunch break from the christian conference. We ordered 2 burgers and a chicken wing appetizer. The chicken came but the burgers were still on the cow 30 mins later. There was no explanation to us for the unusual wait. The only thing I can think of is "give 'em chicken and the [--] will leave" WARNING....BLACKS AREN'T ALLOWED.

“CJ you're the greatest”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We were in Indy last month for the football classic and our waitress CJ was a real sweetheart. She was not only our waitress but she was very entertaining as well. Thank you CJ for making out trip to Indianapolis a great time.
