My wife and I booked for the thanksgiving experience yesterday and were so excited for it. When we arrived at 8pm they were sold out of the turkey, which we were very bummed about, but the staff and the managers made sure that our experience was still amazing and we ended the night laughing and smiling and having fun! Would highly recommend this location!!!

We paid $90 for the Thanksgiving prefix meal. Once we got there we were seated. Our waiter took forever to come get our drinks. Once we got the drinks we didn't see him again till our food came. I know it's busy but for how long it took our food was cold. Like ridiculously cold. We then didnt see our waiter again. Once we finished eating we found a different waiter to ask if we can leave since we already paid or if there's something we needed to wait for. He didn't know so went to go look for our waiter. We were then told it's okay to leave. It was a terrible experience and even more terrible food. Not worth the price or " EXPERIENCE" we paid for.

Worst experience in a restaurant I have ever had. I understand it’s Thanksgiving and all, and I appreciate the staff that worked but from the beginning the experience was terrible. The woman who sat us was rude and not helpful when we asked questions about the menu, our waitress, while nice kept giving us excuse after excuse as to why we waited 50 mins just to get a drink. We finished our meal before our drinks arrived and then waited 30 more minutes for the rest of our food to go and our dessert because by that time the whole family was ready to leave. So we never received the drinks, they comped our kids meals and this was a Thanksgiving I hope so to forget.

The menu was scaled back a lot still, everyone was seated in one small section, the service was incredibly slow, and the music was barely audible. The only good thing about the experience was the host who greeted us and seated us. I don’t know if Hard Rock is just behind everyone else in post-COVID recovery but this was nothing like a normal Hard Rock experience.

Went to see a drag show that was amazing! The food was awful and way overpriced. If you want to pay $20 for McDonald's quality meat, then this is the place for you! Both myself, my husband and one of our friends was sick for two days. The service was terrible also. I don't think the kid expected us to actually order more because he would never come to the table unless we flagged him down. It was our first time at a Hard Rock and I now know why we've never been!

The atmosphere is wonderful but you need time to eat here. The service was slow and we had to rush eating to get to our event. The staff was very kind.

Give yourself an extra 1/2-1 hour if you have somewhere to be.

Went out for dinner before concert. got seated immediately, server was very personable, but slow with even water, much less beverages we ordered. Only checked on us once but tables next to us, she overdid. Felt a lil like she saw more value in them than us for some reason. She was very nice, just absent. Food was delicious. Loved the fry dipping sauce: yum!!

Place was awesome! Went for my birthday lunch. Ordered a cocktail and 24KT gold cheeseburger. It was really good! Interior is lively, exactly what I'd hoped to experience. Awesome staff! Had a waiter who resembles a Rocker type Johnny Depp and the bartender looks like a Badass Pirate! I absolutely recommend to anyone for any occasion! <3

It took about 45 minutes from the time we ordered our food until the time it arrived at our table. My mother's hamburger was cold upon arrival, but the fries were warm. My chicken fajitas were so dry and lacked flavor. Our drinks were fine. The best part of our visit was the host, William, who was very kind and a pleasure.

After waiting 30 minutes to be seated (which was 25 minutes after our reservation) we had not even been greeted by anyone at our table for an additional 20 minutes.
Needless to say, we left.

Everything was great, but took quite some time to get food and drinks. I think there may have been a large party there, so perhaps that was it. Regardless, we had a nice little family dinner before the concert. Our waiter, Logan, was terrific and friendly.

It may have been the best Thanksgiving meal we’ve had. (We had two of the specials while our son had a double cheeseburger). The turkey was moist, the dressing was perfect, the vegetables grilled, the sweet potatoes were whipped and tasty, the gravy complimented the turkey, and the cranberry sauce had chunks of cranberry and a bit of orange zest. It was moderately priced, which made it even better. My son’s burger was cooked to perfection. Totally worth it.
