Hard Rock Cafe is located right on Times Square. We entered HRC on a Thursday evening and were seated promptly right in front of Ringo’s drum set. The restaurant is very large with guitars, jackets, records, and all sorts of memorabilia. We were served quickly and our food came in a timely manner. Juicy cheeseburgers and fries are probably the most popular entrees. However, they also have grilled chicken sandwiches and chef salads. Our food was hot and tasty. The only negative was that once we got our food, our waiter seldom checked in on us for refills, etc, Even after we were done with our meal, it took a long time to get our check. If you have teen-age children or grand-children, the Hard Rock Cafe is a must.

Having visited many Hard Rock Cafes we pretty much knew what to expect in terms of an overall experience and Time Square didn't disappoint even through several items were were looking forward to on the menu weren't there!

We were told it could be a 45min wait, but only waited about 15mins and had great service from our waitress - her advice on the portion sizes was greatly appreciated when we saw the size of our meals!!!!

We were a little disappointed at the memorabilia in the Hard Rock and maybe expected a bit more from this restaurant based on its location. But overall this was a good night out!

My title says it all..."we were pleasantly surprised". The service was excellent and our wait was much shorter than they initially said that it would be. The music was loud, I always wish they could turn it out down just a little but it's fun music. My only complaint is that they have pared down the menu. They only have 3 salads and it doesn't feel as if you have enough choice. The price was pretty reasonable for Times Square. Definitely would go again. I should mention that we went right after the theater plays started so that probably helped the wait.

This place was filled to the rafters but we decided to ask if there was a table for two. The receptionist told us it would be about an hour and gave us a buzzer. 40 minutes later we were at our table enjoying a fantastic environment, music was great, the waiters were excellent and then the meal came. wow!!! The best New York Strip ever and a juicy rack of ribs! To die for! Thanks HRC -NY you made our day!
