In a city with so much to see and do, the main attraction for locals, as well as tourists, is Hard Rock Cafe Orlando. Located at Universal Studios Orlando in the CityWalk entertainment complex, Hard Rock Cafe Orlando is the biggest HRC in the world. With large, statuesque pillars, it stands majestically as a Roman Coliseum of rock, and boasts more pieces of music memorabilia than any other location. The site includes not only a vast, multi-level cafe, but also Hard Rock Live Orlando, a 3,000-person concert/party venue.

There’s nothing better than the Legendary® Burger at Hard Rock Cafe Orlando, but if you’re not in the mood for burgers, there are plenty of other menu items to satisfy your hunger. Order a fresh salad, tasty sandwich, or tantalizingly sweet dessert during your next visit.

While dining and partying with us in Orlando, you’ll be surrounded by memorabilia of music’s greatest talents.

Food was extremely average. My Caesar salad was limp and tasteless. We had to ask our server for side plates, water top ups after she had said she would bring them. Fajitas were average, with no rice or refried beans in the accompaniments.

If you are trying to enjoy salad, wouldn’t recommend eating their salad very bland and basic

One of the coolest places I've ate at. It's more then just a restaurants the collectibles hanging on the walls make it a blast to the past. The food was top notch and the staff was very friendly. Best places to eat while visiting universal.

We had a great time and the Ryan Porter the Manager came by and visited and was fabulous. He found out my daughter just won teacher of the year and he made that special for her. He didn't know, but we lost my husband (her father) in January and he made her feel special and it was soo appreciated (he did not know this we didn't share that part with him). Everyone was great, food was above par and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Considering this establishment is on CityWalk adjacent to two theme parks, it is a very appropriate restaurant for the area in terms of food offerings, ambiance and environment. Our service was a bit slow, but the restaurant is huge and became quite busy/crowded due to the time of year, Spring Break in this case. They were very kind in recognizing our wedding anniversary (it was a surprise to us!).

server not really friendly. My two kids were sharing a dinner and we had to ask twice for a second plate. Food getting cold as they waited. Also had to ask for a second steak knife so they didn't have to pass the knife back and forth... That took more time waiting. Not happy with overall service.

Fun but nothing special. Generally good food, but took a ridiculously long time to arrive after ordering. Were seated right next to kitchen so it was loud and also the food taunted us while we waited endlessly for ours. Ok value and taste for price.

The reservation I made on line was extremely convenient. When I arrived they were prepared. Our server was outstanding and the food was very good. I was impressed that their menu wasn’t too big. I think this really helps the kitchen staff and customer satisfaction with less waiting. We ate a delicious meal and made our show on time. Couldn’t have worked out any better.

Visiting from out of town and had an excellent dining experience. Our waitress was very busy and still made sure we were well taken care of. Another server noticed our daughter attends Central Michigan University and made a point of recognizing that as well. Overall great time had by our group.

Table booked and available at time of arrival 👍🏻great. Food was ok but on second visit child’s meal had to be returned as it was burnt, I felt this was unnecessary a burgers not that hard surely? Service was variable between visits. We liked the menu on offer at hard rock and the upfront pricing which wasn’t always the case with other restaurants in this area. We liked the noise and atmosphere here.

The wait staff were more interested in hanging within themselves although the lady who served us was very polite. My steak was not cooked as I ordered but overall was tasty. Just an average meal which was overpriced for the service and quality we got.

We just went two days ago, and this morning I was telling my wife "hey you know what I need? to go back to Hard Rock Cafe, maybe this weekend?" :D

GREAT food, GREAT atmosphere, GREAT service! I would recommend the wings and nachos for sure, but the burgers are also pretty great.

LOTS of fun on your birthday too!

We were in a bit of a tight schedule as we wanted to make the Marti Gras parade and to my surprise, we were in and out in a flash. The service was great and we happily made it out before the parade started. A friend of mine made a point that we were celebrating my 16th birthday and the server we had definitely made it a fun one, as she shouted a happy birthday for me to light the candle off of our ice cream. One of my favorite experiences at a restaurant.

I spent three weeks in Orlando to do both Universal and Disney. This is the only review I will be writing due to my extremely poor experience at the Hard Rock Cafe. I booked reservations for two people for dinner. We were seated pretty quickly and up until that point the service was great. When we sat down was when things went sour. Our server took a very long time before coming to greet us and take drink orders. Once we made the drink order it took 12 minutes to get two drinks. He offered no apology becuase he told us he looked like Freddy Mercury and everything was fine. This was insulting as a paying customer. Our mains arrived before our appetizers. We had to point this out to our server in order for him to correct the problem, he should have noticed immediately. The food was extremely lack luster and not much care is put into preparation. Everything was soggy and luke warm. Overall this experience was horrendous. For about $85 I could have gone to Cowfish and had sushi and drinks for the same price. Never coming back.
