This place is always a classic stop for great atmosphere. The staff is fantastic and the food is great and the beer is cold, what more do you need.

We found the food good, cocktails were really nice however both were way overpriced which soured the whole experience. Prices were top quality restaurant prices. I recommend looking else where or you could end up spend upwards of $120 USD for a couple

We went for drinks at happy hour, 15:00 - 19.00 hours, a good selection of food and drink. When the bill came 15.07 we were charged full price - no problem took it out the service charge/tip.

We went to the Hard Rock for breakfast and it certainly wasn't disappointing. The menu was quite extensive, the food was great, the service was good. Not overly expensive. Would highly recommend for breakfast.

Not sure but l would think it’s very likely to have a live band playing. I’d ring and double check. See if you can book because it can get very busy.

They do have live music but I'm not sure which days they have them. One of the days that we were there, they had kids playing instruments and singing. It was amazing! As for dress code Id suggest near casual.

"A must do in Waikiki!" is one of our most occurring descriptions in Trip Advisor reviews! We've got live music 2x a day that vibes amongst authentic music memorabilia and a guitar wave spanning two floors. Our open-aired Hawaiian design includes a stage for the best bands on the island performing classic and current pop and rock hits from 5-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Enjoy happy hour specials from 3pm-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Our island specialites include fresh fish tacos, Legendary Hawaiian cheeseburgers, and award winning tropical cocktails. And don't forget to pick up one of our Honolulu classic Hard Rock T-shirt or sweatshirt. We are located at the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Beach Walk Avenue in the heart of Waikiki.
