Very crowded, food was ok, pretty loud. The waiter was great. The bill wasn’t too bad for a family of 6 with no alcohol. I probably wouldn’t go back but I can say I’ve been.

My wife loved her Long Island Iced Tea, mixed to perfection without any of those synthetic crappy fillers used at other bars. Would highly recommend.

I have been to Hard Rock Cafes all around the world, from Venice to Manila, and this matches the decor and good service fond throughout. The food was tasty and the local beers added to the local appeal.

All I can say is the food is great with big portions the atmosphere is excellent but can be loud and is a little on the expensive side for burgers but I would recommend as a treat or special occasion.

Probably about a 20 to 30 minute walk. Go along South and North bridge onto Princes St, along St Andrews St into St Andrews Square the left onto George St, not far down on L/H/S.
