Love Hard Rock and visit them all over the world but haven't been to this one for a while. Went on a Saturday night and seated very quickly due to priority seating card. Found the restaurant to be excellent with great service from start to finish. Highly recommended.

This was my first time at a Hard Rock Cafe after years of wanting to visit. I wasn't disappointed! I had the BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich and it was really nice. A bit tough in places but pretty good. The memorabilia was great - I loved the Oasis stuff and The Beatles lyrics in the toilet! Our server, Wes, was very friendly as was the guy who found us our table - Oscar maybe? (Sorry, can't remember)
I visited the Rock Shop and bought a hoody. Wasn't too keen on the Man Utd style T-shirt though ;-)
Great visit!

If you’re a Beatles fan then you need to check out the awesome memorabilia we have in the bar area, my favourite is a letter that George Harrison sent to Stuart Sutcliffe after arriving back to Liverpool from Germany in the 60’s…..

Visited the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch/dinner meal and the service and meal was really good. Really nice cocktails aswell - price is slightly higher than other places but the food was amazing.

We eat here about every few months - most recently about 6 weeks ago. We commented that the menu had changed a little and a favourite salad was missing - among others.

This is a reliable favourite and the service, food and atmosphere are always good.

It's pricey though and there is better food for less elsewhere in the city

Kevin L,

Thanks for the review, we have changed our menu, in October of last year, if you have an old favourite please ask you server and we will do our best to knock it up for you.

We feel are priced quite competitively against other similar offerings in the city, especially when you take into account pretty much everything on the menu is made in house, all our BBQ/smokehouse items are prepared using our very own smoker and hickory woodchips. Where else are you to enjoy such great food sat amongst some unique one off pieces or Rock 'n' Roll history, served by cool staff in a rocking atmosphere??

Love All – Serve All

We dined here after an event at Phones4u arena so it was late in the evening about 10:30. This was our first time in a HRC. We were shown to our table by a friendly guy who talked to us a bit about the memorabilia and recommended a couple of items from the menu, which had just the right amount of choice. I had a burger, my husband had a pulled pork sandwich. Food came nice and quickly and tasted hot and fresh, great onion rings. This was a great first experience of HRC and based on this experience I would definitely visit again and recommend. There was also live music that night which was very loud so if you wanted to avoid this, just dine earlier on in the evening.
