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.

We joined a friend from Colorado that was coming in town for DragonCon. We we were seated in a quieter part of the restaurant, which was great. The food was good, thought not spectacular.

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.

We ate here 3 times during DragonCon because we knew we could count on them for good food and service. But their service went way above the call of duty, especially given the crowds. Will continue to return.

The waiter was super slow to bring drink refills 10 min to bring back tea and did not have the correct order for drinks to begin with (sweet tea vs half&half). Did not bring out ranch dressing instead of blue cheese when food was delivered.
Opentable reservation saved us an hour of wait time. A+ on that

Overall we had a great night at HRC. Good food and great service. I can’t remember her name but she was wonderful.
The only thing that bothered us was the noise. We don’t mind some noise but we could barely hear the music. And we love to have burgers while enjoying Hard Rock Music!
But we will certainly be back soon!

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.

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.
