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.

The food is great, but be careful while ordering. Most of the additional items that they offer in a misleading tone costs extra. If you want pineapple, be prepared to pay more.
Overall, the food and desserts were delicious.

Our first dinner at this Hard Rock was great. Good food, and great service. Because of that, we went again exactly one week later. When ordering our drinks the young server asked us for ID. I thought she was kidding..we are in our late sixties, well above the legal age. She was not kidding. My husband did not have picture ID with him, but I showed her mine. She left to get our drink order, at least that was what I thought. A few minutes later another young lady came to our table and introduced herself as a supervisor. She proceeded to tell us that it is the law in Hawaii that they ask everyone to show ID to order a drink. She said that she would serve us our drinks this time, but the next time we come we had better have our ID with us, or we wouldn't be served. Again, I thought she was just kidding, trying to be funny, but the tone of voice she used said otherwise. I do not appreciate being scolded in front of other diners, and if this is true, why haven't we ever been asked to show ID anywhere else, including one week ago when we ate at this same place?

We have eaten at the Hard Rock since it first came to Honolulu. It will be a long time before we go back, if at all.

We (2 adults 3 children) went to dinner here during our recent stay in the Waikiki area and I hate to say I was disappointed :(
Food servings were small and overpriced. The "local" section was limited at best. I ordered fish tacos from this locals menu excited about eating their local specialty only to recieve nearly NO fish and mostly cabbage slaw in the tortilla. Thr kids meals were descent and fair though and my Blue Hawaiian cocktail was delicious. Though we have a week left and its within easy walking distance we wont be going back again. They are opening a new one near my home town and I may give it anothet shot then. Also was hoping to buy a tank top but was told they didnt carry them in the winter?!?! Poor Planning Hard Rock, its 90 degrees!!!

We went to Hard Rock for lunch and left very satisfied!
This place might not be a place for special occasion, but perfect for lunch or "normal dinner". The staff were very friendly and helpful good and the food was great!
