Daughters 18th birthday
Bartender was extremely nice, beers at $7.50 for a 16oz domestic is very overpriced.....server was excellent, we got a BBQ burger and fries and the 2 for $25 guacamole and chips and the pulled pork nachos (because that’s the only way to get them, you can’t just order “pulled pork nachos”). Burger was just a burger, nothing special, worth no more than $6-$8, it was topped with onion straws that were very cold and chewy, the fries were good and very hot. As for the other two dishes, the guac was good, the chips were very stale, I thought so what I have the chips from the nachos (notice I didn’t say pulled pork nachos, more on that in a bit). The pulled pork nacho chips were not as stale, but they were baked with items on top of them so it was hard to tell. They were covered with lots of “rancho beans” I mean lots, onions and jalapeños. There was a scant amount of pulled pork. What little bit of pulled pork was on it was very good.
Most people, us included don’t go to HRC for the food, you do go for the atmosphere, which was great, as was the service. I suggest going into the gift shop soaking up the atmosphere and eating fast food. For the price I did expect semi tasty food, not expecting much but for $65 I did expect more.
Didn't end up going-but plan to dine there again!
The food I had last week was pretty good! A rare but FuN date night w/the old lady!
It’s was great
My group and I were all first timers and I’m quite impressed. Cool decor all around. Service was great! Constantly checking on us and really friendly. Cocktails are ok. Not my favorite. The bartender was awesome though, so I guess it was worth it. Steak was a little salty, but the baby back ribs?! Delicious! Pulled pork, burgers/sliders, and onion rings were all a winner too. I would definitely come back again and try the other stuff on the menu :)
Some slips and slides, but I will return at some point. Our party of 5 (with two kids) had a good time. Our 7-year-old (granddaughter) enjoyed a Cookies & Cream Milk Shake before our regular meal arrived. (Go figure!)
I made a reservation for 8 p.m and the restaurant closes at 8. I think they should allow reservations until 7:30 p.m (maximum). I had to eat in a hurry because they were closing
Great food and amazing service! Will be back :)
Keep it up
We appreciate the nice review Angel!--CW
Nice atmosphere, food was good but a bit overpriced.
Service was good.
Sub par food, horribly slow service, watered down drinks. Gift shop tiny.. Will not recommend
Perfect, great food. Beautiful location. Very friendly wait staff.
The food was over priced and under cooked.
Amazing experience! Well run restaurant! We will definitely be back. Food, ambiance and excellent service:)
Thank you for the amazing review! The team works really hard and takes great pride in their work, so one of the highest compliments we can hear is that the operation is well run. We appreciate the high praise and hope to see you again soon!--CW
There wasn't anything special about our meal - it was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Wait staff was very friendly and made sure we were able to qualify for a free desert.
Always nice at Hard Rock. We enjoy how various HR restaurants pick up the local vibe, e.g. New York, London, Venice....The Hawaii vibe is definitely present at the Honolulu restaurant.
Hi TimR, thanks for being a Hard Rocker! We love our unique island cafe and are thrilled that you felt our special vibe and hope to see you again soon!--CW
Service was great our waiter was very nice. Limited menu was sad we were expecting a lot more then just the choice of either a burger, salad, or chicken.
Delicious! The slice of salmon my daughter ordered was a little small, but delicious. Our burgers were perfection!
Hi JenniferS, we are happy that the food was delicious and I have shared your concern on the size of the salmon with our chef. We hope to see you again soon!--CW
Food wasn’t so good for its price.
Hi, we are so sorry that the the food was so disappointing. When you have the chance, we would like to get your full feedback. I have sent you a private message and we hope to hear from you soon.--CW
The birthday cake was only a thin slice. It tasted great, but was way to little for two people. Other than that, everything was tip-top.
Hi SkipB, thank you for the great review! We apologize for the size of the cheesecake and will share this concern with senior management, but we are happy that everything else was tip top. Cheers to next time!--CW
unfortunatly not worth the price. Very nice staff, cool location, but too expensive for food which was “OK”
Food was warm, not hot. I would say that the server was less than observant…could be because she had too many tables.
Service was slow, she kept forgetting to bring some sauces when I asked politely
Absolutely wonderful...no complaints
Hi, thank you so much for the excellent review and kind words! We are happy to hear that you had such a nice time with us last night and we hope to see you again soon.--CW
We loved it! It truly is the best barbecue sauce I've ever had in my life. Big portions taste great!
KellyS, we really appreciate the awesome review and you taking the time to share your experience. I agree, our barbecue sauce is excellent! I highly recommend doing a double dip with the barbecue sauce and the honey mustard together on the tupelo tenders. It is bomb! We hope to see you again soon.--CW
The service was exceptional at this location. Even at the end of the night, the servers were still so energetic and helpful.
Hi KristinaC, thank you for the lovely review and excellent rating. I will make sure to share with Sarah, who was your server that evening as well as with the rest of the team. We love to have fun and are thrilled that you enjoyed the vibe and had a great experience!--CW
The food was good and the music was bomb. 10/10 recommend the onion rings
Hi, we are thrilled that you enjoyed the food and found the music to be bomb, but are disappointed that we only delivered a 3 star experience on your overall visit. I sent you a message and hope to hear from you soon.--CW
I must say this place offers excellent service! After visiting another local favorite this place was a breath of fresh air. Even with the challenges of Covid-19 the staff did their utmost best under the circumstances. The manager and staff were friendly & accommodating. I do recommend making reservations because as the world continues to ramp up places can book fasts. The drinks and desserts did not disappoint!
Hi, we agree, reservations are definitely recommended these days, especially with the limited capacity. We are so happy that you had a great time with us and found both the manager and staff to be friendly. Thank you for your kind words and excellent review. We genuinely appreciate you taking the time to leave a review, but especially appreciate the kudos for making the best of the circumstances; we just want everyone who comes in to have an awesome time :) We hope to see you again soon!--CW
The food was very bland, the appetizers had a lot of flavor but the entrees were lacking. I had the Norwegian salmon and they served string beans on the side, they were very bland with little to no flavor. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich, it didn’t have a wow factor and the portions were very minimal.
Based off this experience I do not see myself returning.
Hi KirstenM, we are sorry to hear that the food was so disappointing. I have shared your feedback with our Executive Chef so that he can ensure that recipes and standards are being adhered to. I have sent you a private message and hope to hear from you soon.--CW
We appreciate the great rating!--CW
Nice ambiance. Observed health protocols like social distancing. Food was good. Friendly server.
Mahalo for the excellent review. We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed service and ambiance and thank you for the shout out on the health protocols that we have put in to place and are following. We hope to have the chance to serve you again soon!--CW
Food was NOT on point, they hardly have anything to chose from where as to before they had so many selections
Hi Lizzier, we are really sorry that the limited menu that we are currently offering was not on point. I have shared your feedback with our senior management team.--CW
Thank you for the excellent review. I will share your kudos on food with the team in the kitchen!--CW
Bacon burger could’ve been better.
Steak salad did not look like the picture. Huge bland pieces of steak vs thinly savory “looking” pieces of steak.
Kids food was great.
The pasta was deliciously cheesy.
Great service, friendly, prompt. Awful cocktail, run of the mill thrown together spirits, nothing more, no ‘love’ no speciality. My salmon meal was ‘okay’ at best. My wife didn’t tell me till afterwards her steak vinaigrette salad was inedible, just smothered in vinegar.
HRC should invest in a new menu and class mixologists.
Hi, we are thrilled that you enjoyed service and appreciate the 5 star rating on that metric. We are really sorry that the food and drinks were so disappointing. I have shared your feedback on the salmon, and more specifically the salad, with our Executive Chef and will follow up with the bartender that worked on the day that you dined as well. I have sent you a private message and hope to hear from you soon so that we can make this right.--CW
Hard Rock changed their menu and it was the best dinner I’ve had there in forever!! Recommend 10/10
Hi, thank you for the review and 5 stars! We are so happy that you enjoyed our updated menu. I will make sure to share your feedback with senior management. Cheers to the next time!--CW
Great place to eat and have fun
Hi, we are happy that you had a great time with us! Thank you for the excellent review!--CW
The food was amazing and our server was awesome!!!
Hi AshleyW, we really appreciate the kind words and fantastic review. I will make sure to share this with Andy, who was your server that night, he will be stoked that y'all had such a great time with him!--CW
The food was good. Prices were reasonable our waiter was prompt. We were outside. We were cold.
Hi NinaB, thanks for the lovely review. I will make sure to share your comments with Rod, who was your waiter, he will appreciate the recognition. I'm with you, it has been cold in Hawaii these last few weeks! Hope to see you again soon and hopefully we will be back to warm and balmy in no time.--CW
The staff is so friendly and professional. The ladies in the shop downstairs are a treasure! So helpful, kind and overall good people.
Thank you for your 5 star rating. We will pass your comments on to our awesome staff! --MB
