As I always make a point to visit the local Hard Rock Cafes in any city I visit, this one was a must. We sat outside on a day that had great weather in February. We drank and ate and were able to people watch from our vantage point.

We decided to pop in the HRC for a beer on a hot sunny day. There was a queue for tables in the restaurant but we go a seat straight away at the bar. The service was very good as was the beer.

I don;t recall ever trying a Hard Rock Cafe before, and for our first visit it was excellent. Located on Duval Street, the main drag of Key West, we had an outside table right on the street which was grat for people watching. My wife and I each had the Norwegian salmon with mashed potatoes and green beans, and although... More

It's what we expected of a Hard Rock Cafe, traditional American food, large basic portions. There was live music outside on the deck next to the bar however this finished relatively early at 8pm. The only downside we had at this visit was the service, the waitress was rude and walked away while we were still trying to order food... More

I went to Hard Rock for lunch yesterday(2/8/17) after touring the Women's Club next door(free tour and the two buildings have a shared history). Anyway, I was seated outside with my fiancée and we had a bit of shade which was nice as it was quite warm. Our server Nicole was great. She helped make sure we had some shade... More

I recently moved to Key West and have dined at the Hard Rock Cafe several times. Twice now I have been fortunate to have Nicole as my server. Each and every time I am seated in her section I am treated wonderfully. My order arrives quickly, my cup is never empty, and my meal is always an enjoyable experience. Consistently... More

It was our first experience at a Hard Rock Cafe. We stopped in for lunch and asked for a table in the shade. The hostess was annoyed by our request, but seated us in partial shade and later our waitress pushed our table so we were in full sun. We waited for 10 minutes to get waited on and it... More

Clearly this is not the level of service that either of us would expect. Although this is not the kind of feedback I would want to hear from a guest, I do appreciate it. Your candid feedback with allow us to specifically correct the shortfalls and make quick improvements. I hope you will reconsider and give us a second try. More
