We had lots of fun. Our waiter Chris was lots of fun and he was even training a girl at the same time.

The food here is always good. We had the Thanksgiving dinner and we enjoyed everything about it. The service was a little sketchy but all in all I would highly recommend it.

Any time we are at a location that has a Hard Rock Cafe we always go to get a glass to add to our collection, but also to try their local dish that all of them typically offer. This was not the case for the Honolulu Hard Rock. They did not offer a local dish and the menu is seriously lacking. The burgers were so dry and the chicken was dry also. The smokehouse combo was a joke and for almost $30 there should have most certainly been more food on the plate. I wish we would have just bought a souvenir glass and then ate somewhere else. The only plus side to this visit was there amazing blackberry sangria...I ordered two.

Our Thanksgiving dinner away from home was great. Hard Rock offered a full turkey dinner and it was perfect.

I ordered a glass of house Pinot Noir that seemed a little off. The server brought a new bottle over to the table, opened it in front of us, and poured a generous amount into a new glass.
Great service.

I don’t know why Hard Rock Cafes are so popular. It’s just like going Applebee’s. Food is all frozen

Limited menu with no major standouts. Caesar salad dressing lacked flavor. Ribs were good and fell off the bone, baked beans were watery. Attentive service and super friendly.

Nice setup, good food, live music was awesome. But the service was poor. My friends and I waited for nearly 25 minutes before the waitress took our orders. After taking our orders, we waited for almost 30 minutes, then ended up asking another random waitress for water while waiting. The place wasn't even that crowded.

We were a little disappointed in the Music decorations. Pretty much just consisted of a bunch of guitars hanging from the ceiling. However the upstairs open to the outside atmosphere was very nice. Our meals were served hot and tasty. Our waiter was attentive.

Family of 2 adults & 2 teens were seated at a high top table in the bar despite the restaurant tables being available. No one came back to our table for nearly 20 mins to take our order. No one returned to ask if we needed additional drinks. Music was loud but distorted and songs were uncommon - not recognizably popular.
