The historic home that is the cornerstone of Hard Rock on Duval Street is an absolute gem. The staff are welcoming, but the food is mediocre and the drinks are very overpriced. It’s worth visiting once for the ambiance, but the value isn’t there when compared to the other amazing restaurants and bars that make up the Key West food and beverage scene.

We stopped in for a late bite to eat and were not disappointed at all. We were sitting out on the patio and were able to watch out on the street; it was quiet enough but we could still listen to the music that was playing and still hear the cars driving by. Conversations were easy so I would say perfect noise level. We definitely ordered way too much food but it was all great and so were the drinks!

Sliders were under cooked bloody in the middle, very little cheese on the nachos. We ordered 2 of the strawberry mint lemonades that had way to much sugar the waitress took them off the bill. Bangkok shrimp were very good that was about it.

We were on vacation in Key West. My 8 year old loves visiting Hard Rock neatest us at home (Mall of America in MN). While on vacation, she wanted something familiar and loves the kids meals on the guitar shaped plates. Being from the mid-west, we were not impressed with the general service we received at restaurants while in the Florida Keys...until we went to Hard Rock! Darrel was awesome and took great care of us! We had a great experience and would recommend to everyone. The atmosphere was fun with a live band playing on the patio.

Okay, it is Key West. Nice, old building converted to a restaurant. a Nice touch. The bar was sort of small and popular with the local crowd, especially during happy hour when the locals get a big discount. Us foreigners could did not have such priveleges. As a result, we could not get near the bar while waiting for a table. Eventually we were seated inside. We had to push for inside seating with the temperature being 60 degrees or less. The waitress was okay. She wanted to take our food order before the drinks show up. For me that is a big "NO". Just as suspected, the drinks were quite slow in arriving. The menu was a standard Hard Rock menu with no local flair. The food arrived at a reasonable time and was of reasonable quality. Nothing to rave about. Okay, it is Key West, but I was hoping for a bit more. The highlight of the evening was Key Lime Pie, that was not on the menu. My wife was talking all day about having a piece of Key Lime pie, so I asked. Sure enough, they had it. It was made by the chef, and was great. It is unlikely that we would go to this Hard Rock again. It was okay, but not great. The beer was cold.....

We had just flown In for our anniversary vacation and were already running late for our sunset cruise. The manager (Kelly), our waitress (Becky I think) and the entire staff rallied around us. The service was excellent, food came out fast and was VERY good. They helped us get back on track so we could slow down and enjoy our dinner. They even signed and gave us a card (with chocolate!) to celebrate our anniversary! They went way above and beyond. We’ll definitely be back anytime we’re in Key West.
