Everything you would expect of a hard rock café. I had a local legend burger and two local beers, all of which were extremely fast. Staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. Price also very reasonable.

We had dinner on Sat. night with our high school choir group. Things ran smoothly (we had a small selection of menu items to choose from) and the kids enjoyed the environment. Of course, it is hard to have a conversation but that's part of the Hard Rock experience! Live band started shortly before we left so that was cool.... More

What's the big deal? Wow there's a big guitar out front and a drum set on the bar so what? The food was HORRIBLE! Burger was bland and burnt at the same time and the fries were nothing to write home about. The only reason this place didn't get terrible is because our waitress was so sweet.

Thank you for your feedback on your visit. I am disappointed to hear that your food was underwhelming. We pride ourselves on delivering a great dining experience (food, service, ambience). Clearly, we did not deliver on this promise during your visit. By chance did you mention this to the server or manager on duty? I hope you will give us... More

We took our grandson, who is a senior in high school, here today and had fun talking about when we visited the Hard Rock Barcelona when he was three. Hard Rock Cafes are always fun with lots of conversation items. Plus the food is consistently good.

My daughter is a guitarist and wanted to stop here. Food was good service not so much. The store staff were amazing! My daughter (10) wanted to play one of the guitars. They let her and cheered her on. Told her to come back and visit them when she was famous!
