Pretty good food, nice waitress. We went when Boston started requiring vaccination cards so there was no wait and only about three tables full in their all night

Perfect place to take the kids before a Celtics game. Great burgers and crispy fries. Host and waitress were super friendly. Kids loved going into the other room to play drums and games.

For a Hard Rock and I visited many the decor was poor, and ambiance poor. Very quiet in there. As for food. It was ok, not great. My husband says he’s done with the novelty of Hard Rock. Cost a lot for a poor experience. This was my birthday dinner and well “it sucked”.

Harlan, my server, was new but did an excellent job! He was very attentive and helpful, and even recommended places to check out in Boston! I saw the dinosaur in Faneuil Hall!

I thought the menu was very limited, the food was pricey but not noteworthy. The server was very slow. Our drinks came after the app was served. I loved the memorabilia but will not be back for more than a drink..

We came in with 3 small children, so the space we had for them to roam and be loud was excellent and our waitress was great.
The menu is really limited which is the downside

I understand the staff shortage well and felt I left plenty of time for us to eat and make it to our train at Notth Station. Made a reservation for 3 pm (train returned at 520), requesting a high chair. Got there and no high chairs were available, no big deal, we made due. The food took over an hour from when we ordered until it came out. We were not provided any silverware, so I had to ask kitchen staff- they put a handful of forks on the table and left. I then had to go find napkins. Our server was MIA for a good 45 minutes. I then had to flag him down from congregating at the hostess podium to pay our bill and we literally ran to the train station with kids in tow, making it at 5:18 and we were the last to board. Very stressful experience, but the food was good as always….

I absolutely LOVE going to Hard Rock! The food is always amazing. I always order the steak salad and ask for shrimp instead of steak and they are always happy to oblige. I think that is overall THE best salad ever in my opinion. This is the 3rd HR I’ve been to and I look forward to trying another one sometime soon!

This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. So disappointing. Our drinks took a long time to come out considering there was not many people in the restaurant. After being super specific about our food and repeating it 3 times to our waiter, it came out incorrect, therefore waiting even longer for it. The waiter was quick to make a scene and blame it on the kitchen. The food was also cold and had no flavor. I have eaten at plenty of other Hard Rock Cafe’s and this was by far the worst. From the poor atmosphere, to the service, and the food,it was a lousy experience. After waiting for our food to come out incorrect, there was very little apology and nothing was taken off the bill. Will not be recommending this restaurant.

The cafe looks like an abandoned room, dirty windows, no atmosphere!!
The food was terrible, the hamburger was awful, we returned it. The cocktail was awful, no taste , no evidence of basil even though the cocktail was supposed to be strawberry and basil!!
I have had this cocktail many times in New York, it is incomparable, we returned that as well,
Don’t waste your time and money on that awful, depressing restaurant!!

My chicken mac & cheese was served lukewarm at best, sent it back and it had been obviously microwaved. It did taste better hot, but wouldn't recommend it. My husband enjoyed his BBQ bacon cheeseburger. Was a little disappointed in the quality of the food.

I dines her on a Wed night during restaurant wee. The restaurant was pretty empty but I waited and waited for the waiter to come by as he was socially with a group of people at the bar. The manager finally came over and asked if I was being helped. She got me a menu and took my order. Entree & food came out together but she did bring the meal back in and asked them to remake it . I finished my app and had to wave down the waiter as he was still socializing. He brought out my meal and it was stone cold. Again he walked by me many times and I finally had to call to him. Explained the food was cold and he he didn't know what to do.I explained I wanted a hot meal. The manager again came out and apologized . All in all the food was good but the service was horrible.
