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 is great. However I would not recommend the chicken tenders meal as they are quite small and seem more of a starter that comes with fries rather than an actual meal. Other than that I can’t fault the restaurant. Service was great and there is a good atmosphere

El servicio estuvo extremadamente lento y la experiencia en general fue mala. Lastima que se haya descuidado tanto pues nunca había tenido una experiencia tan negativa en ningún otro Hard Rock Café del mundo.

Open Table saved us from waiting and hour! Thank you. The food was average and below. The drinks were not that good. Too much sour mix! The service was good, but dinner took forever as stated by the waitress due to getting “flat grills” in the kitchen and the chefs are still learning. On the busiest week, Easter? Come on! Disappointing

I am very sorry your food took so long to get to your table. We did instal flat top grills in our kitchen and I guess that did cause a delay in some of the orders getting to the tables. We do hope that you give us another try in the future to deliver you a true Hard Rock experience. Thank you Kyle Young

The chicken was very tough. The service was meh. Overpriced food for sure. Our drinks came in souvenir glasses which when we went to retrieve them the glasses with our receipt from the gift store we were told that the receipt had to be itemized which the waitress failed to tell us that and it was too big of a pain to try and track her down for an itemized receipt. Not impressed.

Waited 45 minutes for food. It was ok but not worth the money. Server only showed interest at the end of the meal when the tip was imminent. Not very clean. Wouldn’t bother going again.

With 2 youngsters the wait was longer than expected. A table next to us sat 15 minutes later and was served 10 minutes before us. We only had burgers and kids meals. They had burgers as well. The amount of food received for the price of the kids meals was not adequate. They should of received their guitar plates for free!

I always have a good time at Hard Rock. The only bad thing is that sometimes the music is TOO loud and it took a long time for the food to come (and it wasn't incredibly busy). Overall, a good experience. We weren't in any rush so it was all good and fun. Thanks, Hard Rock!

Great place, great atmosphere but very expensive for what is only average food. We are 2 adults and 2 teenagers had 1 main each (3 of us had salads and 1 had a burger) plus drinks which included 2 small beers and 2 non-alcoholic cocktails = $120

Suppose that’s what to expect if you eat on CityWalk!

Save yourself some money and don’t eat here. There are plenty of other restaurants to choose from in the vicinity.

I was stuck in traffic getting to parking lot. Then I had to walk in. Was 17 min late and my reservation was canceled. The front desk would not help remedy the situation, I went elsewhere for dinner.

The hostess had a hard time finding my reservation. They force you to have a picture taken before they seat you, and then try to sell it to you for $25. It took 10 minutes from being seated to having our drink order taken, and then an hour for our food to come out. We watched another family change their order to go after waiting so long. The food and drinks were good, but expensive.

This is my second time here and I’ve discovered on my latest visit the vegan choices are non existent and require modifying existing dishes which is poor and narrow sighted on Hard Rock’s behalf. The server was fairly unengaging and there isn’t a single dessert option offered. Absolutely cannot recommend this venue if you’re vegan looking to eat. Come on Hard Rock, wake up and embrace those people who care about the planet and our future generations!

The hard rock is always an interesting place to go but it is more about the memorabilia than the food. The food is decent but the one thing that always bothers me is that when you a burger they will not ask how you want it done. So if you don’t like medium well which to me makes a horrible burger make sure you ask for it how you want it. Also the brownie sundae for dessert is always good and enough to share.

Had a Dinning Meal Card In Orlando only bought you kids menu basically but the service was great. Compared to Disney you would get a Entre, Side,Desert,Drink but in Hard Rock Cafe Orlando they have you a drink and a small meal that i would consider like a meal for a 8 year old. Only complaint is what you get with the dinning card otherwise it was excellent service

Sorry, food was not what I expected for the price. Three Caesar salads at the table and all had cold shrimp and chicken. Dressing was inconsistent on all 3 salads. Flatbread was swimming in garlic, couldn't taste anything else. Aside from getting in quickly with a reservation....it was disappointing!

We had a great time at Hard Rock Cafe - Orlando. It's situated between both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The food is good and pricing adequate - especially for being at Universal Orlando. Our server Tyler was great - very efficient, kept an eye on us, and gave us enough time to chat and eat. I particularly enjoyed the Cauliflower Buffalo "Wings". A solid place to eat on your vacation to Universal.
