Very limited menu. More the type of place you go to say you’ve been there than for a meal. Service was on point, though.

Service was slow but good. They were very understaffed. Food was okay but husband’s steak was very rare instead of medium rare as ordered. Not worth the money. Very disappointed.

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.

One of my clients was singing and I was there to support her. She did a fabulous job! I thought it would be nice to eat at the Hard Rock before she performed. We hadn’t eaten there in years. It was a very pleasant experience! I’ll be back to try a boozey milk shake someday!

I have eaten at the HRC in London, Paris, Orlando and Helsinki but never here where I live in Denver. We have always loved the food and atmosphere. I went Saturday for an early dinner for my birthday. The restaurant was busy but not crowded. We were seated upstairs and it became apparent quickly that we'd been forgotten. we were the only people seated in the upstairs at that time but within a few minutes several more parties had arrived. You could tell they were uncomfortable with the amount of time they were left unattended as well. When the waitress finally did arrive she took our drink order which was three Waters and one beer. It took a very long time for her to bring back the waters and she explained that she would have to go downstairs to get the beer. not wanting to wait another long stretch to give her our order we asked her to take the order for dinner right then. When the food finally arrived it was cold. two of us ordered the fajita platters and not only were the platters not sizzling as they normally are when we order fajitas at the Hard Rock Cafe, the cast iron portion of the plate was cool to the touch and the remainder the plates were actually cold to the touch. I ordered a combination of chicken and shrimp, but the shrimp had a horrible burnt taste and left an aftertaste. I asked my daughter to eat one of the shrimp and see if she also thought that it tasted really bad or if I just wasn't used to the spice they used. She agreed it was just burnt. we had been there so long I was not going to send anything back and start over so I ate the chicken portion and left the shrimp. My daughter got four tortillas and I got three, not sure which was right. The tortillas were stale and breaking, not soft and warm. We were very disappointed. We have a lot of choices where we eat here in Denver, I will not make this mistake again. It's unfortunate because we've always enjoyed our experience at every other Hard Rock Cafe we've been to. More to say but out of room.
