Description: Though primarily founded during the Gold Rush, San Francisco really made a name for itself in the turbulent 60's. Political protests, the infamous "summer of love" and of course, the ground-breaking music scene all marked San Francisco as an important and pivotal locale for culture. And take it from us—this city with a past still makes the scene, today. Whether we're talking foot-stomping live music or another 6.5 on the Richter, San Francisco truly rocks! Back in the day hippies used to congregate at Haight-Ashbury, but these days the rockinest spot is the Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco. Where else can you eat the tastiest burger in town, trippin' out on groovy rock artifacts and treasures, while jamming to the most outta sight tunes? Our mind-blowing memorabilia collection featuring great locals is far out, man! Grateful Dead, Faith No More, Jefferson Airplane, Journey, Santana, Sly and the Family Stone, Vince Guaraldi… these are just a few of the local bands that made it big. Now you can get in on big action yourself with the Cafe that's rocking San Francisco! Here at Pier 39 we've got fab views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, the San Francisco Bay, and the City skyline, not to mention more than 110 stores, 11 full-service restaurants, and numerous fun-filled attractions. You can find the 45-acre, Pier 39 complex two blocks east of Fisherman's Wharf at Beach Street and The Embarcadero. So if you're going to San Francisco, be sure to stop by the Hard Rock Cafe.

“Hard Rock Pier 39 give it a go”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Hard Rock at Pier 39 is such a great venue. Many years ago it was situated up on Van Ness which was great but this is exactly where is should be at the entrance to the Pier. Great food, Great cocktails, Great service, what's not to like?

“It's a great but HR Café in a beautiful Vicinity”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

I've only been in a Hard Rock Café in Europe before and I was very interessted in all those accessories and guitar etc. on the walls.
The staff is also very friendly and they are also very chatty too.
I decided for a Grill Combo with a half Chicken and Spareribs. It tasted awesome! The BBQ-Sauce is just excellent!

“Quick Bites At The Bar”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We had drinks at the bar along with bites to eat, since it was so crowded, due to the 4th of July crowd. We dealt with it and found a spot at the bar. The seasoned french fries were good, the hamburger was huge and also ok. The smoked chicken wings, however, were delicious. I love wings. They were huge and fired-grilled. We also had the Potato Skins and they were good. Everything came quick and since we were at the bar, we had quick service.

“Try something on the special menu.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

I tried a local speciality, it was a burger and fries, but the bun was sour dough, and the seasonings were great. The Fries were seasoned with a Parm & Garlic seasoning that left me testing it the rest of the day. It was overall great. Our waitress did a good job considering how busy the place was and had a wonderful accent, she wasn't from the USA.
