    If you are waiting for someone and want to rest up and sit down, go through the main lobby, go down one staircase, and sit on the big staircase to the left. B sure to get a pic of the famous God Wall!

    I've been here a few times and was there last week for my birthday. This place never fails, friendly staff, friendly environment, lots of rock music and great decor with artist memorabilia all over

    The original HRC New York was the third Hard Rock Cafe in the world, after the original in London and the old Los Angeles location. The Times Square location opened 2005 and it rocks. Believe it.

    The local legendary was one of the most upsetting experiences that I have ever had at Hard Rock. I have already visited more than 10 Hard Rocks all over the world and the local here was the poorest ;(

    They have memorabilia from the Beatles and many other great performers from their era and more. The food is just like any other Hard Rock. But the atmosphere is fun for music fans of all ages.

    What can I say? The Hard Rock is the Hard Rock no matter what city you happen to be in. However, it seems to be a "cool" place to see and be seen if you are in the Adult Entertainment Industry.

  • Kristine C.
    Crowded and pricey, but what else can one expect in Times Square? You can shop for Hard Rock items while waiting. Friendly staff, especially at the bar. Great atmosphere. Great memorabilia and music.

    Amazing bar! A lot of antique items and rock legend. Quality food with a good price. Lovely employees! Ambient music is missing classic rock though...

    Never go when it's seriously busy but when it's a quieter bustle the objects they have all under one roof are extraordinary. If you go exploring you will be sucked into the rock and roll world
    Beth Dean · September 11, 2014
  • Marcos Paulo
    Really really nice place, the service might take forever and they may not always be very nice to you. But the food is awesome and the song too, but be ready to spend at least 2 hours in it.
    Marcos Paulo · April 2, 2013
  • Esra O.
    if you order an appetizer for two, then forget the main course as the portions are quite big for two with beers alongside. the service is generally quick, sometimes you wish they forget you for five m

    Def. purchase a total access pass ... Totally worth not waiting in line for an hour to be seated. We came in and we were seated right away because of it, great $26 investment. ( u even get 20 back!)

    My grandson thought it was cool. (16) If you have teens with you while in Times Square I would recommend a visit. Check out the hot Fudge Sundae. :-)

    The best cafe in NY. The tastiest cocktails, cool music, nice bartenders and wonderful atmosphere. Whenever I'm here, I feel 20 years younger. My advice is the cocktail Bahama Mama
  • Carina L.
    My favorite HRC! In the heart of Times Square, it's always busy and most of the times you have to wait in line if you want to be sitted at a table but it's worth it

    El lugar es enorme. Vaya con tiempo y sea paciente, la atención y la comida son lo mejor. The place is huge. Go with the necessary time and be patient. Attention and food, the best.
    Andrés Silva · August 23, 2013
  • Samantha B.
    If you enjoy "jumbo" wings with bone shards, long waits with tourists, music that isn't rock (i.e. FROZEN), then this is the place for you. Otherwise, try a little bar on 54th called Characters.
    Samantha Buckler · December 25, 2014
  • Ben A.
    Been coming here years and can't believe they STILL haven't come up with a solution to get phone service in this piece! It's like you're in a cave. Or the middle of the ocean or something

    If you can find Tina Benez, it will definitely make your trip to Hard Rock worth it! A hoot and a half, and one of the few people alive to have a hard rock pin made for her!!!

    A shame!The hostess is very stupid and we wait 20 minutes for a waiter! We leave without eat!Besides, they have a very large line and lots of empty tables.the bathroom don't even have toilet paper!

  • Aaron V.
    Worst dining experience of my life! Took us asking twice where are food is, go the response "there are a lot of people here,it'll be out soon".Then when it came out wrong the waiter and mgr were rude!
    Aaron Vaughan · April 26, 2013
  • Jessie M.
    Watch out and expect them to already add the tip to your check before you even allow them to in the end! Also they won't do seperate checks for over 2-3 people at one table.

  • Güneş B.
    Dont wait in the line for a dinner table, bar section is in the center of the same saloon and its more fun. Btw U can also eat dinner in the bar ;)

    Best milkshakes ever! Try the vanilla or chocolate ones, they are to die for. Plus the venue was amazing. Loved it!
    Camille Verdier · October 11, 2015
  • Domi J.
    Please avoid this Hard Rock Cafe, the food is awful compared to Orlando and the restaurant is so loud that you have to yell when you sit next to each other. No atmosphere, annoying waiters.
    Domi Jersabeck · April 14, 2013
  • Emie
    Don't wait too long for a table, they'll usually just let you go right in to sit at the bar. The bar is just as amazing and serves full meals! Enjoy.
    Emie · August 21, 2012
  • Emma B.
    Mention to any team member it's your Birthday & get yourself a free desert. Or even better, for the over 21's a choice of a free cocktail. Worked for me everytime ;)

    Hard Rock at its best. Huge restaurant but still pleasant. Friendly staff and the food and drinks are very good, Hard rock quality.
    Loes Deraedemaeker · February 23
    Since you're so close to the Winter Garden Theatre (50th & Broadway), catch a performance of MAMMA MIA, now 11 years on Broadway. For best availability, try a 2pm Saturday or Sunday matinee.
    MAMMA MIA! · January 21, 2012
  • Gozde D.
    Definitely a must-go place in New York, the 3rd oldest Hars Rock Cafe in the whole world. Wifi password is "rockstar", with a reason:)
    Gozde D · November 1, 2012

    Ate at the Times Square Hard Rock -- Definitely good food, but cooler scenery. Lot's of great stuff inside...and of course out around Times Square
    Matt Doscher · February 2, 2010
  • Selen S.
    Don't forget that you go to the overly touristy place. Cocktails are very nice. The menu is classic American. Big. Very big!
    Selen Serdaroglu · October 18, 2015
  • Tom C.
    Fun,but this place's 9.1 rating is NOT for food quality or service. Waited almost an hour AFTER ordering, food was cold and dried out when served. Disappointment.
    Tom Clukay · August 18, 2014
  • That M.
    Food is OK and too expensive for what you get. Felt like they used cheap cheese like the kind that you spray out the can for the mac and cheese.

    Fantastic price for the Ultimate Long Island: $15. You get the glass on the picture as a souvenir.

    Poor service, the food wasn't that great, and I payed $4 for one glass of soda? Never coming back. Save your money.

    If you're a Kiss fan, you can't miss it!! Theres a lot of Rock stuff you got to see!!

    Burgers are good, margaritas are better! Ask for the vibe host, we got a tour of the best memorabilia
    mickeymania · November 19, 2014
  • Mez W.
    Came for Breakfast everything was cold they only do percolated coffee and we finished breakfast before I got my cup of tea. Total crap service. Not worth the forced tip charge.
    Mez Williams · July 11, 2011
  • Michael Zomick
    Defiantly very touristy restaurant. But on your way out look at all the rock n' roll gear and check out the gift shop.
    Michael Zomick · May 6, 2011
  • Samantha M.
    Try the California burger and substitute the fries for the onion rings! And get the dill sauce... Sooo good!!!
    Samantha Mui · May 23, 2011
  • Alice N.
    Cool place to visit one or two times as a tourist. Somewhat has the vibe of its location- times square
    Alice Nam · March 21, 2015

    Try to get in early for a good table on show nights, otherwise the bar has really good service.
    Lore Benavent · February 26
  • Fuad S.
    The jumbo combo is delicious! Wings, tenders, bruschettas, onion rings... And it serves up to four.
    Fuad Saud · July 5, 2015
  • Michael B.
    Food was not worth the money by far two burgers and nachos plus a diet Pepsi and a lemonade 76 dollars...not worth it!!!
    Michael Boswell · March 28
  • Øyvind Kveine H.
    Staff is awesome, the food okay(although a bit pricey), and they make pretty much any drink on request
    Øyvind Kveine Haugen · April 24, 2012
  • Luci S.
    Bar staff with bad attitudes and who pour very weak cocktails and nearly demand a hefty 25%+ tip for the 'pleasure'. Awful.
