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.

Hard Rock food is always below Applebees, anywhere in the world...
But its "HARD" to beat the fun atmosphere!

(seems like at those prices you would accidentally make some good food... oh well)

Was a little rush of putting our dinner order in...
After delivering drinks, should ask if appetizers wanted, then ask if want a few more minutes to order.
Music was a little too loud. We were in a side room.
Food was really good.

We were sent to the worst table possible, the manager didn’t want to help at all! My uncle had to discuss to get us a decent table. It was unbelievable rude! We made a reservation and we were put in a terrible place! I’m definitely never using this app again.

We made a reservation and then they couldn't accommodate us because the reservation they made for us was on the second floor and a member of our party was in a wheelchair. When we told the hostess that we had a member in a wheelchair and we had requested to see the game, we were told that we should "rush him over to the bar" to get a spot (at which there were only high top tables that he could not sit at and also very insensitive to the fact that he is in A WHEEL CHAIR). The hostesses were incredibly rude, even after we complained about the discrimination we felt because a member of our party was in a wheelchair. The member of our party who was in a wheelchair was waiting in the lobby as we paid for the bill (because he was incredibly upset), when he was seated in a chair a hostess came over and said "Sorry I was actually about to use that chair..." and had him MOVE and transfer back to the wheelchair. We also went to this venue because it was advertised to "watch the big game with us," however, only 4 small TV's around the bar with no sound were playing the SuperBowl. Even though we had mentioned we wanted to see the game in our reservation, we were placed at a table where only 2 of the 6 members had a view of the game. It was so incredibly disappointing (not to mention, felt incredibly illegal). We will never recommend this restaurant to anyone, and I want this organization to know just how HURTFUL, ILLEGAL, AND UNACCEPTABLE these actions were.

As a legend member, hardrock always gives great service to all guests. I say if you are visiting City walk in Orlando make Hardrock a place to visit for both food and atmosphere.

Ordered the impossible burger and it must have been impossible to cook. First it came so over cooked you could not eat, tried again and it came raw and most likely thawed in a microwave and thrown on a bun and then the plate. The Tupelo chicken was also over cooked and left a lot of grease on my plate. Very disappointing as this was a birthday dinner.

This is my favorite restaurant in the state of Florida. The best atmosphere and the most amazing food. The service is always AmAZinG. This server was particularly grouchy until the end he brought me a sundae for my bday and was pleasant enough. But for coming to this place religiously this was the first time I've ever encountered a grouchy server so it's rare and I'll be back soon and certain it will back 100% awesome service again.

Noticed from previous time we had been there that they changed the menu which is obvious to happen, but didn't seem to be as many options to choose from on the entrees. Food was still very good but would like to have more of a variety.

I chose the Orlando Hard Rock Cafe for a group dinner to celebrate my birthday. It exceeded expectations. The staff was super friendly and went out of their way to make it a fun and enjoyable experience. The mac 'n cheese burger was unbelievably good! The rock ambience was just what we were looking for and we loved the green screen photo experience. The birthday gift from the rock shop was a nice touch. I'm a big time Hard Rock fan and the value was definitely there!

Went to meet my cousin and his family. Had a very good time and enjoyed the food a good deal. I had the ribs, which were very good, and my wife had the salmon, which she tells me was excellent. The sides were not great, but pretty good. We'll definitely go again.

Fun place for uncomplicated food and great cocktails. Service was fast, friendly and anticipated our every need. We loved our Mac & Cheese with chicken and the BBQ sandwich and fries (although the portion sizes seem to be getting much smaller). Cocktails were awesome! Really great place for birthdays and for a bite before or after visiting Universal parks. Lots of music memorabilia everywhere!

The reservation through OpenTable was great, no problems whatsoever. However the food was not the greatest. I'm guessing since we went to the Orlando Hard Rock they expect a higher turnover of patrons and pre cook their food. We ordered and had our food in under 5 minutes, grilled salmon and baby back ribs, which would have been awesome except it was very dried out and seemed overcooked. We did not send it back however and did not alert the staff to our displeasure as I didn't want to spoil our anniversary dinner date. For the premium price you pay at the resort restaurants it would have been a little nicer to have fresher food.
