The bar experience was slow and awkward. But once we finished with the bar and went to the table, we got a great server who kept us engaged without going over the top. The food was yummy.

What stood out for me was the obvious positive relationships with the staff -they all seemed happy and relaxed with each other, smiling and greeting each other. They were very friendly and relaxed, and knowledgeable about their menu. Great service.

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.
