We ended up in Waikiki for a short stay. Not only was the Hard Rock Cafe a short walk from our hotel but they have a separate part of their kitchen for prepping gluten free meals. I get very sick if exposed to any gluten...More

We weren't overly impressed with Hard Rock. Wishing we had stopped next door at Tommy Bahama. Burgers were overcooked and beer was overly carbonated. Just not the typical Hard Rock and prices were high. I don't think we'll return which is disappointing.

Description
"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.
