My friends and I came here for dinner one night and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was fantastic, the service was great and the burgers and cocktails hit the spot. I ordered the Fiesta burger - loved it. If you like salsa and jalapeño's, you must try this burger.

Amazing atmosphere. Beautifully designed. Great balcony / outdoor seating area. The bands were fantastic and the food was amazing too! A little pricey but if you're willing to spoil yourself for a night, I highly recommend it!

If you are a regular visitor to HRC when you travel, this location is lovely & won't disappoint. The guitar wall/ceiling along the stairs is gorgeous & the open air dining is lovely. You won't get much 'local feel' here, but if you are going to a HRC then obviously you are going for that brand and not the local... More

Had a great burger here, it was so big that we shared one between two. We had the Hawaiian themed burger and it was delicious. Had starters too.

Good dinner experience , had a balcony table outside so was less noisey and cooler. Food was good, Fajitas yum. Staff efficient and friendly . Defiantly recommend . Tip.... you can actually book a time for dinner at Hardrock using open table reservations, this was useful as many restaurants you have to wait a long time for dinner.

With this many beers to choose from, you can't go wrong but other than that, service not fantastic and the food is okay. Great location and if you love the Hard Rock, this one is typical.

They even have my favorite cocktail - Rumpleminze - along side a cold beer -with hot wings. The band they had the evening we were there - was good - and... More

On a family trip, we skipped out to hard rock for a few drinks without the kids. The wait staff at the bar was nothing short of amazing. The drinks were great, the atmosphere was amazing and this was one of the highlights from our trip. The restaurant was even willing to accommodate a reservation for 13 people for dinner... More

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.
