Located on one of the major corners in the middle of the 16th St Mall, is a great and convenient location; also near several hotels. The food was good, service was good, the Manager was fantastic!

Good service, drinks are overpriced. Had the southwestern salad and it was surprisingly good, would return, other diners had the flat bread and a burger. Would be 4 stars if it wasn't for the drinks

I went there for have a late lunch after check in in my Hotel, at the time it was basically happy hour. So most of the drinks was $4.00 and the food has some starters and other options which was 50 % OFF. Everything was good and the service was very attentive. After this place I went drunk shopping .... More

We were not in town for business and then Monday night football. Came here for a snack and drinks before the game. We ordered drinks, water and nachos. The nachos came and we still did not have drinks or water! Finally got our drinks, but still no water. We immediately ordered a second round so we might get them before... More

Hi Ray. I'm so sorry to hear about your experience, especially before the Broncos big win over the Texans! If you would be so kind as to drop me a note at Denver_sales@hardrock.com, I'd love to get more info from you (who your server was, what time you were in, etc.) so we can use this as a training tool...

We stopped in to have a few drinks at the bar at around 9:30 on a Saturday night and the place was so empty. The bar was empty but did fill up a bit by the time we left, about 45 minutes later. The restaurant area downstairs had many empty tables and all the tables lining the railing upstairs were... More

Thanks for the review. I'm sorry you stopped by on a slower weekend night here in Denver. We normally only seat our second floor during peak business times, but glad that our bar and retail staff made your visit more enjoyable. Hope to see back again when things are rocking downtown! More

“Really? You want us to eat here?” That was the response to my husband’s suggestion that we try the Hard Rock Café on 16th Street after a fruitless search for a restaurant that didn’t have a ridiculous wait for a table. You see, it was a Saturday night (10-22-16) and 16th street was crawling with Zombies. I understand that it... More

We weren't too hungry when we went here, but couldn't resist visiting a Hard Rock Cafe. We both got drinks that came with a souvenir glass and we got a huge appetizer platter that came with a little bit of every appetizer they offer.

The Hard Rock Café in Denver is located right along the 16th Street Mall. It was an easy walk from the Sheraton Downtown Hotel where we were staying. The wait staff was friendly and helpful and provided good service. The menu was typical of what you would expect at a Hard Rock Café. We had drinks and club sandwiches which... More

Description
Denver was founded in 1858, the first spot where gold was discovered in Colorado during the heyday of the Gold Rush. While still firmly rooted in its Western past, modern-day Denver spotlights sharp skyscrapers, clean streets and literally dozens of parks that give it a much younger and more progressive feel in the new millennium. Although nicknamed the "Mile High City," Denver doesn't lie in the mountains at all. The city itself is completely flat, sitting on high plains with the Rocky Mountains as a majestic backdrop. Stop by the Hard Rock Cafe Denver the next time you're visiting the "Mile High City"! Located in Denver Pavilions, this two-story walking mall on 16th Street was recently rated Denver's #1 tourist attraction, but that doesn't mean locals don't hang out here, too! We're the #1 spot for everyone, and as always, the Hard Rock Cafe is easy for everyone to find. Just look for the 20-foot neon guitar and spread the word that there's still gold to be found inside our doors! (Gold-album recording artist memorabilia, that is.) So if dry mountain air has left you parched, unhitch your wagon and have a seat at our handcrafted oak bar for the tastiest drinks and the best grub this side of the Mississippi. No horses inside though, please, just the occasional pony keg.
