My partner and I had lunch here during a weekday, we found the restaurant quiet and the staff attentive and friendly. We both ordered burgers, which were delicious and filling. Was very interesting looking at all the memorabilia on the walls.

I think this establishment will continue to be a favourite amongst many people and for myself the food was good as it always is but this time I had a girl that really had the body language that she didn't want to be there. In the service industry or even the people industry it's not that hard to show a... More

As a music lover, the memorabilia is always eye candy for me! The menu offers a good variety of American favourites such as burgers, classic sandwiches and also has some good salads, and more substantial main meals. The bartenders can whip up anything and the service staff are great at what they do. It's a great place for a family... More

We visited for lunch/dinner on our first day on the Gold Coast, and the food and service was so good we came back for dinner the next night Unfortunately going at dinner time it wasn't as great as the day before, as the music was turned up quite loud and it was hard to talk to everyone at the table....

Absolutely love Hard Rock cafe, from the memorabilia, music, staff and the food. The only down fall is it is quite pricey but still worth it for the atmosphere.

Food was amazing here. The service was exceptional. Spent plenty of fun (and worth-while dollars) on goodies in the shop too! Highly recommend this venue.

We stopped here for a bite to eat one evening. The food was tasty as expected from a hard rock. The service was a little slow, but it was busy, so nothing unexpected there. Would recommend

A great cafe that is very clearly a popular destination for both locals and tourists. The music playlist was great, the decor very nostalgic and quite the interesting sightseeing point. The menu was comprehensive and reasonably priced, if not a slight pricey for a cafe-style dining. GREAT staff who assist throughout the entire experience.

What an awesome location. Like all hard rocks with a similar menu and signature dishes for the local area. The staff are always on point and the food is exactly as expected. Love the location set above the hustle and bustle in the tree tops. Great to take the kids for lunch.

We ate lunch here on a weekday. Staff were accommodating and catered well for allergies. Kids menu is around $13 dollars, adults from around $20. Food was nice, but not sure it was worth the $90 odd dollars for what was overall burgers and a drink. Worth a visit though if you are into music and/or the novelty of going... More
