My husband and I were there to have dinner before a concert located on 4th Street. We were seated right away. Food was delish. Only thing I’d say is it would be nice to have outdoor seating availability during concerts instead of these huge companies coming in and buying up all the tables...

The service was excellent. The menu seemed small and nothing really stood out, however the food was fantastic! I was surprised. With such a basic menu I expected it to be bland and basically cooked. Whoever the chef was did an excellent job preparing burgers. They were juicy and perfectly cooked; even the sliders!

Terrible experience overall. We got there early and they would not let us sit down prior to our reservation even though the restaurant was empty. We were told those prior reservations to ours would be sitting down first. There was very little communication after that. We showed up at a reservation time and were seated and did not get drinks for 30 minutes and our food for 45 minutes after that. We were told that it was because there was a concert in the area and the restaurant was overbooked. When we left the restaurant was still half full. The food was marginal.

Everything was terrible - line out the door to be seated even with reservations. Rude and slow service (10-15 minutes to show up at our table, 15+ minutes for drinks to show up, long wait for food to show up with congealed cheese and ice cold meat. Over 20 minutes for them to remake the food (just a plate of nachos) for it to come out congealed and cold again. Waitress didn’t apologize - mostly just shrugged and blamed the kitchen.

We arrived for our on time reservation of 330pm on a Saturday. We had requested thru open table as well as told the hostess we wanted a booth. She still sat us at a table with chairs. There were only 5 family's at tables and 1 at a booth. We said nothing. We ordered the spinach dip with chips, they told us they were out of spinach. We said nothing. When our appetizer came, the extreme small size and portion given to 3 people to sample was equivalent of 3 sausage links, each cut in half to make it appear like 6. Again, we said nothing. We tried to order any kind of chicken for entrée, they said they do not offer that. We said nothing. My wife asked twice her sandwich to be made without cheese. Yes, it was made with cheese, we said nothing. I asked for extra tomato on my sandwich. Yes, I got a single paper thin slice of tomato, again we said nothing. So, while All of other experiences at Hard Rock Café, including Canada, Italy, New York, Chicago and Florida have been wonderful, we thought we would drive 2 hours and try this café closer to home. The 75 dollar lunch, i will let you be the judge. I have nothing left to say....

Such a nice time here! Our server was seriously amazing! Had great food and drink suggestions and really kept an eye on us the whole time! I loved that when we walked in the door the host was super friendly and even chatted with us all the way to the table! We have been in the industry for a long time ourselves and wanted to make sure you knew how great your staff is - even though we spent a good 10 minutes telling the manager how much we enjoyed our experience! Looking forward to coming back!

Got to the restaurant a bit early. They sat me right away and in a booth, which was a great surprise! Checked out the items on the walls as i had a friend that had never eaten at a Hard Rock Before. Server was really nice and chatted a bit and the food was good. I always come back when i am in town, which is very frequently.

Our server Nina was very nice but we waited a while before another server passed us on to her. We waited over 20 minutes before getting drinks and I waited tables for years so I sympathize but considering how many were employed and they were not super busy I’m not sure what the excuse was. The host was really frustrated. Nina was polite and apologetic and we tipped her well but I think management needs to step in to make some adjustments.

The service was very poor and the food was either lukewarm or cold. Why wife’s chicken sandwich was cold and half raw. We asked for water three times from two different servers but never got it from anyone.

Mimi was an awesome waitress which is why my review submission is an 10 for excellent. Mimi was working the patio June 20th and needs to be recognized for her efforts. My wife and I were attending the Kenny G concert at the Louisville Palace and picked Hard Rock for dining. Patio was set up as very pleasant with an local band setting up across from our patio area. It was an great pre cursor to our evening later. Food was great but drinks way over priced.

If I wasn't there for food it was nice. My food was attracting fruit gnats my whole dining experience...and I got fajitas which my tortillas were hard. They did bring me new shells but by then my food was cold. Not impressed with the dining experience....but loved all the music memorabilia..

We were seated in a crowded little area in a corner that didn’t seem like it was even meant for seating. Our waitress tried her best, but stated she had 20+ tables. Our order was wrong, and the corrected item arrived when we were ready to leave. The food was terrible as well. Very disappointing experience, but that is the pattern of our visits to all hard rock cafes. We vowed never to waste our time or money at any hard rock location which sucks since I enjoy the memorabilia.

Firstly service was bad. We went in on Friday night and the place was dead, which should have been my first clue. Service was very slow and inattentive. Food was burnt and fries were cold.
The only thing decent was the cold beer I had, but it wasn’t the beer I asked for.
Would not recommend for anyone. Price was way to high for the food or service.
I get it’s a theme place, but service inexcusable for the price
