I have NEVER had good service here. Not seeing a waitperson for 20 minutes at a time, waiting 15-20 minutes for a beer when the bar is ten feet away. UGH. Only went because of the performances and would never have any reason to go there for any other reason.

No different than eating at an Applebee’s or Ruby Tuesday. Chicken for salad was cold. As if it was cooked that morning. Waiter was good.

We had to wait over 20 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation & then they "cancelled it" on Open Table. We had to contact them in order to receive our 100 points.
While our server was great, the food was so/so & they stuck us in a little narrow alcove by the kitchen & bathrooms...it was like Grand Central Station. I had requested a "quiet booth" & this was the complete opposite! Like a super anxiety attack with nothing on the walls to indicate it was The Hard Rock.
The "Cobb" salad I ordered was totally bizarre & again was nothing like I had ordered. If we weren't going to a concert & didn't have time for a remake, I would have gotten something else. It was basically a nut/seed salad with some baked chicken. No eggs, lettuce or tomatoes or bacon like a "normal Cobb salad" Our server even told us they make things "with a twist"... this was way beyond that...good thing I don't have nut allergies.

I will never go back. We had a reservation but the Hostess had a terrible attitude that said she hated being there and wished you would leave. We could not have conversations due to the noise factor. The food was fair but over priced. The server was very pleasant and a great job.

Great food and service. Was hoping to hear music while eating, but not sure if music was playing in dining area. Restaurant was in the middle of a remodel so I would like to go back after work is complete and try another delicious item on their menu.

Our server came by once to take our order and once for the check. The only other times we saw him were because we had to ask someone to track him down. We ordered drinks and 3 apps. It took over an hour to get our food. Overall, it was not a good experience and I will probably not be back.

Just mediocre food for the price. We are a family of 3 and spent $60 for a BBQ sandwich, a burger and wings. Definitely could have had better elsewhere. Nothing special about it. Our server was good.

Food was not good at all, my family food was cold. It took almost 45 mins before our drinks came out. The waiter was very informative but after he notice we were upset about the food he did not come back to check on us. A manager came over and apologized she comp us for our meal and gave the birthday a free Hard Rock drink glass.

One of the reasons why you'd eat in a chain is because it's predictable, which at times is exactly what you want.
Unfortunately this particular Hard Rock is being worked on and whether that's related to the level of service or not is unclear. Either way the drinks service was unbearably slow.

The restaurant is currently under renovation which would have been nice to know before making the reservation. The area we were seated had bare walls and plastic, definitely not the Hard Rock ambiance we were expecting. The food was good and the server was great though! So all in all it was a good night. It’s just a different atmosphere with the empty walls

Salad wss very nice but there was no crumbled blue cheese so there was no blue cheese taste at all. Reallly just a plate of green leaves in a vinegarette. Air conditioning was too cold. Like sitting in a freezer. We did move tables but was not any better. 10/10 for our waiter. Lovely young guy

Very good for a chain restaurant. Our server was outstanding. Food was pretty good, although I'm pretty sure my "16 oz" cowboy rib-eye was only about 10 oz. couldn't have been more than 1/2 inch thick. Came out overcooked, but they did send out another promptly.

We sat at our table for approx. 15 minutes before a server came to our table. Drink order took 30 minutes to receive (manager came over and ended up comping). Food was average, server was decent, atmosphere was very loud and annoying with the staff yelling and singing loudly for birthdays of other guests which was a huge turn off. Would not return to this or probably another Hard Rock Cafe.

Our waiter was fabulous. A young guy that attends GA Tech.

The two people working at front podium checking people in were awful. It was chaos. We had reservations and she said they were cleaning tables and it would be 10 minutes and then forgot about us. She never checked us in so open table thought we were a no show. She said it was her third day on job. She needs more training.

Please keep in mind that this restaurant is "themed," and that can lead to loud, boisterous crowds. Sometimes, the crowds can include small children. But the food is excellent and the rockin' experience should be experienced once.

It took them 30 minutes past our reservation to actually sit us. It took a long time to get the food after we ordered. The food was bland.

The waitress and manager were doing a good job but I just don’t think they should have given reservations if they couldn’t fulfill them.

The OpenTable reservation system worked great with Hard Rock. The over all value was good but not great. the waiter was very slow with drink refills and the order was not correct. My wife ordered half & half tea and received sweet tea, then it took 10 min to get her a refill when she asked for it. We ordered ranch instead of blue cheese for our order and received blue cheese when the order was delivered. Hope to get better service next time.
