I'm a big fan of Hard Rock Cafe Restaurants and I try to visit them on every city I go, so this wasn't the exception. Sadly, this was a little dissapointing. The location is ok, as it's far from the crowded zone but close enough to everything. You can get here easily. Inside it's too dark, and we get a... More

Parking was easy, the food was so delicious and a great price! The service was incredible and seriously the coolest place to dine in Chicago. To stare at Prince's blouse while sipping a Moscow Mule is not something this Wisconsin native can do everyday. My daughter loved the Fall Out Boy stuff...I loved the Claptan, Cheap Trip and Lennon stuff!... More

For being a Hard Rock in downtown Chicago, it was a nice dinner. Cost was moderate for downtown Chicago. Had a nice dinner and waiter was good.

As a fan of Hard Rock Cafe I loved this one. It was my first time in Chicago, I went here straight away to have my favourite hickory BBQ ribs! They are the best!! It wasn't too busy, there were only us and another table. Service was good and staff was friendly! Loved it and got my Hard Rock Cafe... More

As a fan of the hard rock brand the Chicago hard rock cafe is excellent... The food and service are of the usual high standard. The interior decor is the usual mix of terrific memorabilia. Overall another great rock cafe.
