If you love vintage music, then you should go. Was much too loud for me. Server was great, but server was very slow. Food was ok, but not great. I would spend my money elsewhere.
This was our first time at Hard Rock Cafe in Chicago. We were celebrating our 7yr. Anniversary. We enjoyed ourselves and the service was great! Thanks waiter Juan! The Reeds.
Could not mix a drink! Mojito with regular ice, no sparkles. They did it twice but no. Irish coffee with way to much liquer and no wipped creme. Suger?
Fun. But schoolclasses? Both on friday 5pm and saturday 6pm. For me, Hard Rock should not be a familyrestaurant.
In town for a few days from Florida. Husband had to work and I wanted to take the kids somewhere close to our hotel to get a quick bite. They had a blast and ended up dancing on the stage!
Always a good time at a Hard Rock! Great food, fun atmosphere, friendly staff and nice manager.
Food was good, but not worth the high price. Also, had to pay to park...$15 for valet.
The hostess barely recognized our reservation for 7 people and refused to sit us together. We got 2 tables and they were back to back so we just turned them and made 1 long table. The waiter was okay but not too attentive. Food was a bit pricey for what we got. I also told someone it was a birthday and they did not do anything!
Very wonderful will return again
It was awful! We sat down and waited 20 minutes before anyone came to get our drink order. Then we ordered and my chicken sandwich came. It was still pink and cold inside. We sent it back. When it came back it was still not warm enough. Then when we got the bill they had charged us twice for the chicken sandwich we had sent back. When we tried to get it fixed we were ignored by a server and then the manager said the waitress noticed. My question is did she know she did that and charged us anyways!? We will never be back there. Ever.
Overall the food and server was GREAT. Your hostess’s were very rude and not knowledgeable at all . I made a reservation and they told me i still had to wait hour and half to be seated . What is the point of a reservation if i still have to wait ?
Mediocre-bad food and terrible service. It took 20 minutes to get a drink and my fajita veggies and meat were barely cooked. I’ve been to several hard rocks, including this one, and have never had a bad experience. I will likely never go back.
Great place to eat and hangout with friends
My partner and I are in town for the auto show with out 3 boys. Decided to eat here tonight and it was a great choice! Our waitress Claudia was fantastic and my kids loved her personality. We Wish every person in the customer service industry was like her. Our food was great and the environment was warm and friendly. We will definitively be coming back soon.
Came for my daughter’s 17th birthday along with 3 of her friends. Carolina was the best server ever. She really made my daughter & her friends feel special. She actually sat down next to them to discuss menu questions. Carolina was so personable & friendly. One of my daughter’s friends asked Carolina if she could have the musician on stage sing happy birthday. Carolina indeed asked the musician & he agreed! Carolina also brought a special birthday dessert even though we didn’t ask. She was always one step ahead to make our experience special. The musician, Brian Allison, was a total hit with our entourage! We are expecting some great success with Brian. Thanks to Chicago Hard Rock Cafe for making my daughter’s day special.
Great food, outstanding service (Jazsie), great value for money. Enjoyed the experience from start to finish.
When we arrived some “manager” guy told us it would be a 45 minute wait. I explained to him that we had open table and i understand if we have to wait a little but not 45 minutes. This guy was a complete JERK! So “the jerk” called over his boss. I think his name was Cliff or Clint?? But what an amazing super over the top nice guy!! Totally accommodated us and went above and beyond! Thanks to him our experience was SUPER! And our server Jazz (?) was great also.
Lindo sitio poca gente para ser un Hard Rock
You don’t go to Hard Rock looking to have your foodie cap blown, or to get the big value meal. However, you do get a great experience with a fun, attentive staff passionate about music, and surrounded by amazing memorabilia.
It was on of our favorite places while we were in Chicago.
We were in Chicago to see Hamilton & wanted to give our kids a fun day in the city, The Hard Rock did NOT disappoint! Food was great, service was outstanding! A fun day in the Windy City
We showed up and it was pretty empty, there was a snow storm so I’m assuming that’s why. Our reservation was for 7 we showed up at 640 and they made us sit and wait until 7 even though there was only about 7 tables being used. Other than that, the service was great!
Our server was friendly, attentive, and knew the menu and drink offerings quite well. After we were finished and walking around, another server picked up that our 5 and 7 year old were looking for any Beatles memorabilia. We walked over to them and asked their favorite Beatles’ songs. After the current song finished playing, their 2 songs started playing through the restaurant. I wish I caught his name because he made these 2 littles are the top happy! Days later, they are still talking about it! Thanks to all for being so welcoming!!
Enjoyed our New Years Day dinner with a very light crowd. I guess most were still hung over.
Warm and friendly service . GM was on floor talking with guests the whole time . Very fun atmosphere in restaurant, stage, bar and gift shop- all are kept very well.
Absolutely amazed by the burgers and cocktails, service was excellent we will definitely be making another trip
The server spilled a whole tray of drinks on me and was slow to return for additional service. Throughout the meal we had 3 different servers and a manager bring out our food. No drink refills as our original waitress was behind the bar. Bill came with no discount for the spilled drinks and slow service. I asked for some kind of discount and one of the waiters reluctantly comped one of the 5 burgers.
Great food and service!
Hunter was an excellent server! The food was good and was served quickly.
Our chicken tenders were cold and hard.
Our server was amazing, she was fast, had a photographic memory, and above all else was pleasant. She was one of few servers in the restaurant working on Christmas Day and was handling our party of 8 as well as a few other large parties without even flinching. First time I tried a burger at Hard Rock in a very long time and I have to admit it was great. I would definitely go back just for the burger because it was very tasty, juicy and the side of chipotle aioli pushed it over the top. We went here because there were not many places open but left very satisfied with the service and especially the food and drinks. I have not had great experiences with chain restaurants but it was so good I would not pass up an opportunity to come back when I am in the area in the near future.
Food was great, service was great and prompt. atmosphere was fun. Highly recommend
Christmas evening. I sent an email to Hard Rock Chicago to confirm we could have dinner. Me, my wife and two kids. Made a reservation for 9pm.
The servers were pressuring us like hell. We asked cocktails and starters. And we got pressured to choose our main plates. As soon as the starters finished, meals arrived (I wanted a new cocktail before that!). Just after the meals arrived (by 9h30pm or so), they asked us to make our last orders as they would close. Terrible experience. Two tables close to us complained about it (one even said (ok, I don’t know if you saw but I’m still eating - when he received the checkout!!). I’ll never come back again (even when I move to Chicago definitely...).
Great food and great service. Ensure you ask for Hunter to be your server. He is a high energy good guy.
We had a great time!
Great band. Beautiful decor. Decent food. Attentive server. Fun place
Hard Rock Cafe sure isn’t what it used to be! We brought our kids here because we remembered a fun atmosphere and good food. The night we went was not busy at all - half the restaurant was empty. We were seated right away, but no one came to the table for at least 25 minutes. A couple seated behind us (after we were seated) had ordered and got their drinks before anyone came to our table. The food was mediocre at best, not a good variety of craft beers for a Chicago joint. Overall, the family had fun looking at the music memorabilia, but food and service were not good.
Always a great experience. Upbeat service, fun vibe with good music. Had the new Baby Back ribs, they were delicious. There is a Christmas Tree lot on their patio. Fun times.
Went to Chicago for a conference and was looking for someplace downtown to eat that wasn't going to break the bank. I've always loved Hard Rock cafe's and found this one to be among the best I've ever been to. Great service, excellent food and not too hard on the pocket book!
Friendly and attentive service staff; convenient on a holiday; awesome chocolate shakes, and atmosphere is fun, but can get a little loud and distracting
Everything was great but Don’t expect to get off chest.
We are fans of Hard Rock Café and have eaten at many in North America, Europe and one in Australia. The food is good, not great, but one goes to HRC to watch music videos and see outfits, musical instruments, posters and photos of famous rock groups young and older. The food selection includes burgers, sandwiches, and a number of main courses. HRC Chicago has essentially the same menu as its counterparts worldwide. Food was tasty and wait staff attentive. Prices are a little higher than similar menus elsewhere downtown, but then this place has lots to view while eating.
