Food was rushed to table, as we went to eat photographer more interested in selling his photos taken 10 minutes ago, As such a large place felt as if we were being rushed over our meal. If it wasn't for the displays and interest of the place....i could have been in macdonalds on I-Drive!!!

Hard Rock is known for its collection of rock and roll memorabilia. The cafes solicit donations of music memorabilia but also purchase a number of items at auctions around the world, including autographed guitars, outfits from world tours and rare photographs are often to be found mounted on cafe walls. The collection began in 1979 with the gift of an un-signed guitar (a Red Fender Lead II) from Eric Clapton, who was a regular at the first restaurant in London. This prompted Pete Townshend of The Who to give one of his guitars, also un-signed with the note "Mine's as good as his! Love, Pete.

The Hard Rock Cafe is within a short walking distance from the hotel. There??s something for all appetites at the Hard Rock Cafe. Offering quality, classic American food in a unique, high-energy, music memorabilia-packed atmosphere.

I love this place, one of my favorite restaurants in o-town. The music is loud the crowd is electrified. The walls are covered with rock materials guitars from famous bands etc. Great place to eat any day.

Fun place, everyone that works there seems to be having fun. I had the Legend BIg Cheese burger & it was HUGE, like it was 10 ounces, Juicy & very good. It was cooked to Medium the way I like it. Fries were hot & I couldn't eat it all.
We shared a hot fudge brownie for dessert. The servers said the brownie is made in house & it was served warm with Haagen Daz Ice cream & thick hot fudge sauce. To die for. Enough food if you have a big appetite.
I would go back but it's a bit expensive vs the local places. Everyone was nice & friendly to us.
We'll be back again.

Pros: Fast service, friendly, good food.

Cons: You have to walk a bit to get there.

This is definitely a fun place to go. The food is above average. It is somewhat of a hassle to get to. You have to walk about one-half mile after you park you car unless you valet park which winds up costing about $20 by the time you tip. If you valet park, you still have to walk about on-quarter mile. My biggest criticism about the valet parking at Universal is that if you are handicapped, they do not give you any price reduction. If you are a war hero in a wheel chair, they still charge the same.

I am a very regular guest at this establishment. The staff are extraordinarily courteous, always a smile or a wave--and not just from the bartenders. The security, the box office, the bar backs, the ushers (when appropriate) are all terrific!

They book top notch entertainment. I've seen everyone from KoRn to Tom Jones in this venue, and have never been disappointed by the talent. The in-house production (sound and lighting) are world-class and the facility is acoustically brilliant. (For those who really care, there are a few "sweet spots" and they are NOT near the soundboard! Walk around a bit, look at the curve of the walls, and you'll figure them out.)

The bathrooms are spotless and attended, drink prices are on par with this sort of venue, and the snack bar (pizza, burgers, hot dogs, pretzels, etc.) is usually open, although they do sometimes run out of food, so order early. Unfortunately the menu from the Hard Rock restaurant isn't available in the live music venue--even in a limited capacity.) In general the facility is very, very clean--it's by far the cleanest live music facility in Central Florida, and one of the top five cleanest that I've been in out of the hundreds I've visited all over North America.

The only major disadvantage to this facility it's location. Because it's on the Universal Studios property, it is a very, very long walk from the parking deck to the venue. It can be up to about a mile depending on where you can find a parking space. Also if you want to arrive before 6:00 pm so you can have dinner someplace before the show, you've got to pay $12 to park. Same thing with seeing a show on an evening that Universal is running a special event. Unfortunately the security and attraction folks employed by Universal aren't nearly as congenial as those at Hard Rock Live. (Location and it's associated pluses and minuses is where the competing House of Blues has it hands down over Hard Rock Live.)

A classic tourist trap but fun. Service was excellent and a lot to look at. the only drawback was the food was "so-so" at best and a little overpriced.
