I love Hard Rock Cafè Style and when it is possibile I go there, wherever I am. In Atlanta was the first time I experienced a service not good. The servant was not professional and this is not the normal Hard Rock Style.

Just like any other chain. Food is mostly burgers and sandwiches. But average at best. The atmosphere is great but that is about it.

While we were seated quickly, that's where the good service ended. Our waiter had to finish his conversation before even acknowledging us. We waited for approximately 10 minutes before he came to the table. He didn't have much good to say about the menu after we asked for suggestions as we have never been to a Hard Rock. We ordered, but were not asked how we would like the burgers to be cooked then the food took forever to come out and was cold and dry. Waiter never came back to check on the food, only refilled our drinks once and that was after my glass sat empty for 10 or 15 minutes while he stood overlooking the tables, having another conversation. We moved our plates to the vacant places of the table and still sat, obviously done, while he finished that conversation. So much for a birthday celebration, I received a card with the manager's card in it. Yay, happy birthday to me, now I know who to contact. It's not like it was super busy, but it was extremely loud and the waiters from the other tables were being well attended to. Very disappointed, but this was out first and last time at a Hard Rock. We wont be trying another after this 😏

Upon arriving early, we waited briefly to be seated. The host stand wasn’t very friendly. Our server was very nice, it absent a lot. Drinks went empty for long periods before refilling. We ordered the shrimp appetizer which was spicy but good. I ordered the Tupelo honey chicken tenders because I couldn’t decide on anything else. There were 5 small pieces of breaded and overlooked chicken on my plate. Not appropriate for a $17.99 price tag. The drinks were fine. Kids enjoyed their meals. Husband’s burger was tasty, though not prepared according to how he ordered it. It took 2 hours and 15 mins to get through the dinner. Would not recommend.

The food was good but the prices for sandwiches seem high. The wait to get a table was great but the service was very very slow. It took 15 minutes yonorder the food and 40 minutes before we got our food. The staff was very friendly.

Maybe it was because we went at like 9pm , but all tables were dirty staff overly occupied and food very expensive. I've visited one in NY and it was a much better experience.

Had to wait regardless our table was booked for late PM. Server was very nice, but not at all knowledgeable regarding menu items. Food was mediocre at best, overcooked burger, dry fries. Quality somewhat below the average Hard Rock food. The 3-star review average on other sites is more representative.

We were seated about 6-7 minutes after our 8:15 reservations, though we arrived on time for it. It seemed there was a shortage or slowness with the staff member setting up our table. I don’t mean to judge, as it seemed very busy in there. But it also took forever for us to get our drink orders filled (just tea, coke, lemonade, nothing fancy) and I had to basically find another server to get refills.

We always have fun at Hard Rock! They are mid renovation and it still felt clean and worth the trip into the city. The staff was amazing! We were running late for our reservation and they still managed to get us seated quickly and were so nice about it. Our server was also amazing! We’ll be back again soon!’

Sever wasn’t good. Our order was wrong (twice.)
We were there for a surprise 16th Birthday. Just would’ve thought the server would’ve put a little kindness & fun in our experience. Food left a lot to be desired. It was all just ok.

More than the food we visit good restaurants for a good time. The speaks above our table was turned off and the only music we heard was the noise from the kitchen plates and silverware. Horrible.

I’ve always wanted to go since my teenage years and begged my family to go! The service was excellent but the food was just ok. Our ticket was $128.51 and we left a lot of food on the plate. It was large portions but the food wasn’t anything special. We paid 17.50 for chicken fingers and my son eat 1/2 of one. The breading was crunchy and he truly didn’t like them. My husband paid around 18 for a chicken Ceaser salad and he’s the only one who finished his plate. And I ordered a cowboy ribeye for 33.95 and it tasted like a steak I get back home for 9.99. Thank you for the great decor and service but we won’t be back.

Overpriced food and drinks. 9.50 for a hurricane that tasted like syrup and juice. Burger was just ok. For $16.50 I expected way more. Waitress was too busy to really tend to us. Water never refilled. Best part was dessert but for $10 I could have made it myself.

Its summertime in Atlanta, I do understand it's HOT outside, however going from high 80's-90's to what felt like 40 degrees is crazy. It was entirely too cold and made it for an uncomfortable experience. The food, was less than average and overpriced for the quality. I had family in town from another state and thought it would be a neat experience to take them to Hard Rock Atlanta, however it was not. I was unaware it was under construction, which could also have been mentioned during my reservation request.

This is a restaurant where you are paying for the ambience and experience over the quality of the food. It's a fun restaurant to enter and there are many valued pieces to see. Our waiter, Jordan, was fantastic! He blended charisma, communication and efficiency seemlessly. We waited 15-20 minutes for our appetizers and our food came out shortly after finishing those. The food is average and everything was appropriately warm. The prices are a bit steep for what you are getting but the service truly was exemplary. We would go there again.

I was a little disturbed to have a host walk me and my guest to a table and then once I ask if she had a booth sje informed me they had alot of reservations and was going to be busy. I informed her which she already knew that I had made a reservation then she asks if it was ok. We were seated at the booth that frankly is a better option for 2 than the table due to the fact you have more room at the table that sat 4 people. Once seated I asked her about gwtting tickets for the show that they had that night and this young lady who is a host knew nothing about a show was going on later that night then she looked over to where they normally has it and says oh that's why they're probably setting up there do you want me to find out I said sure I wanted to know what space and is it still okay to purchase tickets if we would like to do so and how do we go about doing that she said she would check on that and let me know she never came back to the table. The drink I had which is one of the new I guess a seasonal drink a white peach sangria taste like it had no alcohol in it at all I understand that it's going to have light it wasn't as refreshing as I thought it would be and I had the impossible Burger which I've had many before because I am a vegetarian and it was one of the least favorite that I've had thus far so and I frequent Hard Rock quite often because I am a collector of hard rock shirt so I do go to Hardrock every city that I'm in so I was a little disappointed to have that type of service in the city that I live in.
