I ordered the 3 grilled meats, highly recommended; my wife had the Fajitas also highly recommended. The waiter was paying attention without being intrusive, offered us lemonade refills every time the glass was low. Great place!

Very impressed how quick and prompt Craig Hawkins the General Manager handles his stores. Love Indianapolis and enjoyed the PRI Show once again.. Great environment.

Visited to take my father in law, Hard Rock Indianapolis is very clean and staff are great but food is always below average and over priced at this chain.

Hard Rock is always a pleasure to visit, and they get into local events, which is always fun! Enjoyed visiting here before a concert downtown and would visit again.

We visited after a pacers game. Pretty slow night, wait staff was nice and fairly prompt. We had desert, seemed pretty much outa the box, nothing special, expensive but downtown..

Stopped in for a bite since it was across the street from our hotel. A Friday night and the place was dead. Very limited menu both for food and quality beer.

Went here with friends on a weekday. The staff was friendly and we were seated quickly. The food was served quickly and was very good. Great ambiance and very clean. Prices were moderate. I would return here again if ever in downtown Indianapolis.

I've been to the Hard Rock Cafe a couple of times and I've always had good service. The biggest sell is the displays but I kind of think that's not even a big deal anymore. The food was average I would compare it to like Applebee's or TGI Fridays but a little pricey. Being that this is located downtown I... More

Arrangements were made ahead for our group of 86 ( not a misprint ), pre ordered meals from a select menu,some in the group ordered from the full menu after we sat .

Food was good but was overpriced which is not surprising. The memorabilia was not the best compared to other Gard Rocks I have been too.
