Love Hardrock’s and have been to this one a number of times. Left feeling disappointed. Visited before U2 concert at the Arena. My burger was great but my fiancée had a salad which was basically just green leaves and she left most of.

A very busy evening with the concert clashing with a European football match. Didn’t have to wait too long to be seated, time for a drink. Brilliant atmosphere, very helpful staff. The food was really good, started are very large portions so suggest sharing.

Also went on that one. Big accessible space with many tables. Happy staff and a lovely night. A company next to us had a sweet sixteen party and we had a lot of fun. We became one company.

I've not seen any online but a burger meal is about £15 and meals range from at least £10. Cocktails are about £8 but if you pay £11 you get a souvenir hurricane glass included. Hope this helps.
