“Very nice”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

During our travels we have visited many Hard Rock Cafes and they are always consistently impressive. This one was exactly the same and there was a great atmosphere. Nice central location easy to get to,easy to find. One of the smallest ones we've been in,small amount of memorabilia however what was there was from famous local bands which added to the experience.

“Not Impressed with this one.”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Wanted a light supper after a busy day during our recent Seaatle vacation. I've always enjoyed HDCs in the past so was confident this would be no different. We chose to sit in the lounge since we weren't having meals and there wasn't a wait to go in there. We waited close to 10 minutes before a server appeared. He wasn't chatty like the servers usually are even when they are busy. Our beer was cold (good) but the nachos soggy(not so good). The server seemed far more interested in having a good time with the people at he bar ( and no he wasn't bar tending or even helping the bartender) than checking on how things were at our table. Didn't see much for memorabilia although we didn't wander through like we have in past.
Worst HRC experience I've had but will assume this is the exception. My experience at other HRC has been fun, friendly and every attempt to be attentive in what can be a very hectic environment. Skip Hard Rock Cafe Seattle.

Hello Drydenite,

I was sorry to hear that your recent experience was less than what you expected from the nachos to the attentiveness of your server. Please know we've taken those issues up with our staff and should you find yourself in the area, we'd love to have you back to prove that the Hard Rock Cafe experience you've come to expect is certainly available here. Thank you for taking the time to let us know. Have a great day.

“Price, but that's the Hard Rock for ya!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Food was pretty good and high priced, but that is normal for the Hard Rock. Was a little scarey to see that my grilled chicken salad was 1200 calories! Yikes.... Our waitress was nice and the music was good. Didn't see a whole lot of memoribila though, but it is a smaller Hard Rock. Coudn't afford to eat there all the time, but nice for something special.

“Happy Hour Half-Off Appetizers!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Ate here twice during a recent vacation. It's conveniently located just up the street from Pike Market and they have a nice long happy hour which makes the meal very reasonably priced if you eat appetizers. Only one or two of the appetizers are not available for half-off and the wait staff told us which ones they were each time. The nachos are big enough for sharing, burgers are nice-sized and cooked to your specifications, and all of us really enjoyed our food and service. The memorabilia in this cafe is focused on local artists, so don't expect to see things from your favorite band or singer unless they are from Seattle. I am a Hard Rock fan, but even if you're not, you will enjoy the food if you like typical American fare.
