Description: Though primarily founded during the Gold Rush, San Francisco really made a name for itself in the turbulent 60's. Political protests, the infamous "summer of love" and of course, the ground-breaking music scene all marked San Francisco as an important and pivotal locale for culture. And take it from us—this city with a past still makes the scene, today. Whether we're talking foot-stomping live music or another 6.5 on the Richter, San Francisco truly rocks! Back in the day hippies used to congregate at Haight-Ashbury, but these days the rockinest spot is the Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco. Where else can you eat the tastiest burger in town, trippin' out on groovy rock artifacts and treasures, while jamming to the most outta sight tunes? Our mind-blowing memorabilia collection featuring great locals is far out, man! Grateful Dead, Faith No More, Jefferson Airplane, Journey, Santana, Sly and the Family Stone, Vince Guaraldi… these are just a few of the local bands that made it big. Now you can get in on big action yourself with the Cafe that's rocking San Francisco! Here at Pier 39 we've got fab views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, the San Francisco Bay, and the City skyline, not to mention more than 110 stores, 11 full-service restaurants, and numerous fun-filled attractions. You can find the 45-acre, Pier 39 complex two blocks east of Fisherman's Wharf at Beach Street and The Embarcadero. So if you're going to San Francisco, be sure to stop by the Hard Rock Cafe.

Just another restaurant on the pier. Would have rather eaten at a local San Francisco restaurant. Food was okay, nothing special and the service was less than desirable.

This was my 12th HRC located @t the good ole' Pier 39, San Francisco! Decent service and atmosphere. The location is great, but it gets crowded ASAP, so b patient. The overall experience was good, not my favorite HRC, but good.

Visited for dinner on a Monday night and was seated straight away without a booking. We were served quickly and the waiting staff called past to see if everything was ok regularly. We didn't have to wait for drinks, food or the bill. Food was great, burgers are always good and the Hot Fudge Sundae for dessert didn't disappoint. The only issue was the wonky table but nothing a paper napkin didn't fix and I couldn't get the free wifi working on my phone but no big deal! Great memorabilia and music. Purchased t-shirts and HRC pins in the souvenir shop on the way out. All in all we hav a great night with grist food and service. Recommended.
