    Food was quite good and decor was interesting, of course. Prices a bit high for drinks. Disappointing that there was no musical act (unlike most Fridays) - a fact that was not communicated online, etc

    Very friendly staff. This is a hamburger and appetizer order only place. Don’t order a steak from here though. Music was metal rock when we were there and loud. But would be pleasant for other people who are in to that. I just enjoyed being able to book on open table and not have to wait somewhere.

    First I told the waitress it was my nieces 7th birthday and they didn’t even acknowledge her. Second, we got our food and the chicken tenders were cold, fries were barely fried and then they waited until we finished our meal to tell us it was CASH only! We never carry cash on vacation only credit cards. So now we have to pay a cash advance fee for getting money out at the ATM. THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DISCLOSED AS SOON AS WE WALKED INTO THE BUILDING. Basically they kept that from you so you would eat and then have to struggle to find cash or pay a fee at THEIR ATM. Will not recommend and will never be back. Tennessee is a yearly trip and several friends also come yearly. I will definitely tell them how lack luster and inconsiderate this place was. I’ve been to hard rocks all up and down the east coast. Even in New York City the staff was SUPERB. I assumed because Tennessee is a home and family town that this one would be on the same level or better. This one didn’t even reach the bottom tier. It’s sad because I love Hard Rock Cafe. Maybe management needs to do some additional training on customer service and simple etiquette. Just a suggestion from someone who works in management at a healthcare facility where customer service is out first concern.

    Overpriced. Many food items were just not cooked well. Orders were missing. Drinks were forgotten. Expected a lot better food quality for the price. I don’t blame the entire staff since it looked like they were short handed but for the price it just seemed like the food was very basic and low quality.

    I love the decor of hard rock and the food is good…but the prices just don’t create enough value. A burger is $20. The cheapest steak is $32. Thats double what you normally pay at outback or roadhouse. Not worth the upcharge

    Service was fast, food was mediocre compared to other Hard Rocks that I've visited. The primary issue was the waiter... he was creepy... kept hanging around the table wanting to chat since the restaurant was slow at the time. About $80 for 2 adults and 1 child. My son couldn't get his preferred drink of lemonade because they only had specialty lemonade made in the bar.... checked it off the list, won't go back to this one.
