Four of us stopped in around 9:00 on a Saturday night and we're seated outside immediately. Burgers were great. Pulled pork was dry and mediocre at best. The upgraded fries were also very tasty for those who like garlic or spice.

Very nice leisurely breakfast sat watching the world go by on Duval Street. We were leaving that day and needed to leave by a certain time, the service was a little slow but tbh I only noticed it because we were trying to get away. Food was lovely, waitress very kind. I brought some gifts from the store and the... More

Monday night, full outside, not inside, and top floor closed. Arrived around 8:00, waited almost an hour for dinner. Asked for a medium burger, couldn't pick it up because bottom bun was swimming in a pool of blood. My wife ordered an arugula chicken salad that was supposed to come with spiced pecans but didn't have any. Waiter didn't seem... More

Had been on a tour of Key West and did a little shopping, caught a late lunch here. Good service and our food was good as were the drinks. Very clean. Nice outdoor seating allows you to people watch on this busy street. It was a hot day and we appreciated the cooling mist provided in the seating area. Nice... More

I have been to quite a few Hard Rocks. This food at this one was not good. Too greasy and too expensive for what we ordered. The music was bad and too loud to enjoy dinner. Will not go there again.
