Summary

The best meals we've had here are when we order only appetizers or only desserts, and drinks. The entrees - mostly burgers, sandwiches, steaks and ribs are average, and you'd be hard pressed to differentiate them from anything you'd get at, say, NBA City. More remarkable is the extensive collection of music memorabilia, including a pink 1959 Cadillac revolving over the bar. It is the biggest such collection on display anywhere in the Hard Rock chain. Ask at the check-in podium about free guided tours of restaurant; if you're lucky, you may get a glimpse into the VIP-only John Lennon room upstairs.

As of January 2015, Hard Rock Cafe offers a 15% discount off food for Preferred and Premier Annual Passholders only before 5 p.m.; AAA and military discounts apply all day. You can sign up for a Hard Rock Rewards membership to get additional offers and earn points on purchases (including alcohol). Be aware that admission to the adjoining Hard Rock Live concert hall is completely separate from the restaurant, though you can sometimes order food from the venue's bar.

Setting and Atmosphere

This is the biggest HRC in the world (or in the Universe, as they like to say in this part of town). Shaped like the Coliseum, the two-story dining room is a massive museum of rock art memorabilia. The circular center bar features a full-size Cadillac spinning overhead. If you need to be told this is a noisy restaurant, you’ve never been to a Hard Rock Cafe before. Everyone, however, should visit a Hard Rock at least once.
