I've been to lots of HRC's but this one was better than most. Nice guitar wall, good food, great waitress, nice and relaxing lunch. Had the appetizer combo between two of us, more than enough great food.

:We ate here for dinner on a Friday night. We didn't have a wait which was great - we expected to have one on a Friday evening. It can get a little loud so its more of a casual atmosphere - not romantic or relaxing. I had the Honey Mustard grilled chicken sandwich, and my husband had a pulled pork... More

What a lovely change to Hard Rock cafe's around the world. We loved the slight differences to this one and the selection of memorabilia was pretty good and the selection of souvenirs was really good also. The service and food was great and the staff are very friendly and engaged. A real nice sight to see and to visit.
