This once-hip international chain, famous for its must-have T-shirts in the 1980s, still manages to stay relevant three decades later with a solid lineup of food, mood and music. Featuring live bands four nights a week during the summer months, Hard Rock holds true to its rock ‘n roll roots and continues to draw crowds.
Hard Rock Cafe Food
The menu is about one would expect from a rock-themed restaurant, from Elvis’ favorite Tupelo Chicken “Love Me” Tenders to the Mamas and the Papas-inspired California Dreaming Burger topped with cucumbers, guacamole, lettuce, tomato and Monterey Jack cheese. But the big difference between Hard Rock and some of the other theme restaurants in town is its smokehouse selection, including barbecue ribs, chicken, beef and pork. The steaks are excellent and the Blackened Chicken Pasta is a house specialty. Pizza and a full kids menu are available for those with tamer taste buds, as is a full bar and wine list.
Hard Rock Cafe Atmosphere
The Egyptian-style pyramid building sets the tone for a unique experience. Guests enter on the top floor, so the dining area and bar are in a sunken pit below while a souvenir shop greets you at the door. The décor is a museum of rock ‘n roll music, from guitars played by some of the top acts in history to autographed personal memorabilia. Many guests roam the dining area to tour all the cool collectibles.
The atmosphere was quite unique with a vibrant collection of guitars decorating the building. However, our waitress, Heather, was very attentive as well and made the dinner appeasing. She checked up regularly and made sure we had more than enough to drink/eat and offered her own input towards what the best dishes were in the Hard rock cafe. The most surprising part was that at the end of it all we figured out it was her first day on the job. Very impressive and great location for HRC.
Love this place!!!!
