We decided to drop in this Hard Rock location for lunch and we were thrilled with the experience. Best Club sandwich I have ever eaten, and best service I have seen for a long time. Good atmosphere, food and service ... what more can a person ask for?

We love coming to Hard Rock Cafe for the whole experience. The music is always great no our service was very good. The ribs were tender and nicely charred the fish no the BBQ chicken were good. The strawberry and basil lemonade mocktails were great. Nice selection of non alcoholic drinks.

Always appreciate the live music! We booked a table online, 30 minutes prior to our arrival, shopped at the store and got a 5$ coupon off dinner ! Friendly staff!

Great place to eat! Weather was perfect and we were seated right along the balcony area while the sun was going down, made for perfect views! Menu is about the same as other Hard Rocks, but the food was fresh and delicious. Service was one of the best we had in Hawaii, our waitress went above and beyond when our... More

We had a delicious meal here. The atmosphere was great, with lots of interesting memorabilia for those who are interested. The service was very good and the staff friendly. We enjoyed the fajitas and burger off the evening menu.

We had a group of 22 people in town for the holidays. They took our reservation for 7:45 PM. The only complaint I have is that they didn't seat us until 8:20. But once we were seated, the service was prompt, courteous and efficient. Everyone enjoyed their meals except for the mac 'n cheese. Food came out hot and nearly... More

The usual Hard Rock cafe experience, same menu as all the other restaurants. Drinks were expensive. Not the cheapest dinner we had.

I last visited this place in 1991 it was ok back then, I've largely avoided the 'fries and burger' chain ever since. I can happily report that, some two and a half decades later the Hard Rock Cafe is better than ever. It has moved to a beautiful new building on the corner of Beachwalk and Kalakaua that also houses... More

Staff services excellent. Very attentive. Jumbo Combo getting expensive but it was good. They have not put the potato skins back but they do have the Santa Fe Spring rolls back. They are also presenting it better - similar to the original. Mac and Cheese is excellent. Great appy - too much for a full meal. Prices on drinks are... More

"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.
