This was a must stop for us, or son loves the band Motorhead so we had to stop here so he could see Lemmy's favorite hangout. He even got to sit in Lemmy's favorite chair!

Been here before. Food is fine. It's the atmosphere/ambiance that I find interesting This particular visit was very different from my other visits. Usually the service is steady and the food is reliable however my last visit last week our female server with dark hair was so confusing because throughout the dinner from the time she took our order she...

Always had a burger at Rainbow room whenever I made it to LA - but this time it was so mediocre I'm not sure I'll come again. The service was great, but the food seemed just careless: the salad was tasteless, the fries limp, the burger far from awsome. Sad, because the place is special.

An Icon of the Sunset Strip! I have been coming here since the mid 70's (with a fake ID of course). They have amazingly good pizza! It's a quick walk from my office so not bad for a lunch hour. Sure it's touristy but in the best Rock n Roll kinda way.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Rainbow. I've been wanting to go here for years and I finally got my chance. The pizza was excellent and the calamari was pretty good too. Music upstairs was outstanding. Don't expect any sort of posh experience at the Rainbow, it's sort of grungy, but the experience is one you won't forget! Highly... More

First trip to LA and running into this place was the best thing that could ever happen to me. Great beer, huge selection of drinks, awesome music, local bands playing, a statue of the one and only LEMMY! Had a drink with Rob Affuso, long-time Skid Row drummer... It seemed like everyone, locals and visitors, was willing to say hi... More

Great bar with a great crowd and some amazing rock 'n' roll history to it (and I don't just mean the G&R video). Had a tasty pizza, lots of beers and ran in to Ron Jeremy. Awesome.

For the history alone this is a great place, plus you never know who you might see. A popular place for rockers. Also amazing pepperoni pizza....it is what I always get when here.

We went here just because it's almost a must do when in LA. When we went this time they were extremely short staffed. One person working inside and one person working outside. It took us 1.5 hours to order and get a small pizza that my friend and I split. They were only 3 other tables inside. The pizza was... More

Was in LA on my own but new a lot of people also around the same weekend, headed over to the Rainbow and ran into so people I know. Sitting around made a bunch of new friends, had some great food, while listening to that 80's rock and roll!
