“Hard Rock and Bad Health”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

There was nothing on the menu under 1000 ml of sodium. Most dishes are over 1000 calories. The burger is less calories than a salad. Do not go if you are trying to loss weight or eat healthy! The chicken wings you can get grilled and have a nice smoky flavor. The mild buffalo sauce left my lips on fire. Corporate bar menu. Good for what it is. But health concience beware.

“Not all it's cracked up to be!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The atmosphere is about all I can say for this place. Ordered appies ... which came with the main meal ... after we waited around for over 1/2 hr before our drink order was taken. Buddy ordered a Chicago rare steak and pretty much had to make it himself.

“It was ok”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I thought the customer service was not great. The waitress seemed to have been annoyed with requests. We were hungry and wanted to eat and wanted a different waitress. In the end the food was ok and we continued on our way.

“Great Service - Fun way to kick off weekend”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Fun seeing all the old video's played. Our server was inviting and made out experience fun. We were killing time until our room was ready at the Lowe's - had a Margarita which was yummy.

“Overpriced food, average service”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Went on a Saturday afternoon downtown, our first choice to eat was closed. Walking around we stumbled on the Hard Rock Cafe. It was about a 20 minute wait, which wasn't bad at all. The sat us in the back by the glass doors that lead to the other section of the restaurant. As it was December, whenever the door opened, a cold draft came in. There really wasn't much of a selection on the menu, the burgers were a little pricey. Food took some time to get to us and it was just an average burger, considering the price. There wasn't much in the line of decor, some larger pictures/memoribilia on the walls. For the money, 5 Guys Burgers blows this place away.
