Description: "A must do in Waikiki!" is one of our most occurring descriptions in Trip Advisor reviews! We've got live music 2x a day that vibes amongst authentic music memorabilia and a guitar wave spanning two floors. Our open-aired Hawaiian design includes a stage for the best bands on the island performing classic and current pop and rock hits from 5-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Enjoy happy hour specials from 3pm-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Our island specialites include fresh fish tacos, Legendary Hawaiian cheeseburgers, and award winning tropical cocktails. And don't forget to pick up one of our Honolulu classic Hard Rock T-shirt or sweatshirt. We are located at the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Beach Walk Avenue in the heart of Waikiki.

This is my favourite location to date and does not fail to please on each visit. Good staff and live music. Local beers are good as well. Easy choice...

My kids say we have to go anytime we see a new Hard Rock and I am glad we went to this one. Much less rock memorabilia than the Hard Rocks in Orlando, Myrtle Beach and Washington D.C. however the open air seating was terrific. Great service and personally I think the fish tacos from the local menu was one of the best meals I have had at any Hard Rock. If you like this type of restaurant, Honolulu Hard Rock will not disappoint.

Aloha disneylover98,

Thank you for taking the time to write this awesome review about our cafe. I'm so glad you had such a good time. Yes, we don't display as much memorabilia as we have in the past, but each piece is framed in much nicer window boxes. The displays are much nicer then before. Plus all of our memorabilia has a tie to Hawaii. Either the artist played or recorded in Hawaii. We even have Jack Lords guitar that Elvis played, how cool is that. We hope you will stop by again the next time your in Waikiki.

The atmosphere was decent, and so was the food. I'd never eaten at one, so that was my birthday dinner. It didn't WOW me at all, but I would try another one.

Lots of stairs lead from the rear of the shop to the restaurant above. I guess there must be a lift for those who can't manage stairs. There is a patio area overlooking the street but we ate inside, though it is all open air. There was live music when we arrived then video music later. Food was surprisingly good and service prompt. We enjoyed the night and would go back again.
