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.

Reasonable amount of gluten free options although only one starter option of chicken wings. Our starters were brought and within a couple of minutes our mains were brought so we had to leave either one to get cold. Food was nice though, it was busy but service was very slow maybe they needed more staff although there did seem to be plenty. Waited a long time to receive the bill and another long wait to pay the bill and our plates still hadn’t been taken upon leaving.

Our visit was standard for this chain. I am a frequent Hard Rocker, and everything was fine for our visit. Food was good, ambiance was good, and my girls and mom enjoyed the food & talking to "Foggy" our server, although I joked with him about his name, he was cool about it. Lol

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.
