the universal city walk hard rock cafe is the largest hard rock in the world. one of a world wide chain of restaurants known for their hamburgers and simple american fare. like all hard rocks it is decorated with rock music memorabilia. the hard rock cafe building is rather strange replica of the coliseum in rome. a must do spot for collectors of hard rock t-shirts.
Favorite Dish burgers.
Orlando's Hard Rock Cafe restaurant is located at Universal Studios Citywalk, a dining, shopping and entertainment district just outside the gates of both Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure. Here you can enjoy a giant collection of rock and roll artifacts and lots of music as you dine on great food.
We ate at the Hard Rock cafe after a day at Universal studios. It was great because before we went into Universal, we had to go through City Walk. There's a reservations booth - it's worth going there to make a reservation for the time you think you'll want to go - it's not an exact reservation, but it gets you the next available table. They also give you a money off voucher so it's worth doing & only take a couple of mins.
Hard Rock cafe is great! There's such an atmosphere - there's alot of memorobilia & people there singing away, just generally having a brilliant time - what holidays are meant to be about!
Favorite Dish I had the BBQ pulled pork burger - which was lovely, although it was very strong. Dave had a burger - again he said it was the nicest burger that he'd ever had........he's a burger fiend so did sample about 20 burgers during our trip, lol. We had some onion rings to start with - huge portions, although the meals came almost straight after our starter had been brought out which is always a bit of a pain as we weren't in any rush.
We sat upstairs & had a great server - it was such a huge place though....never been in a restaurant as big! Would definitely go back on a future trip :) There's also a store you can go & spend some further $$$ at after you've eaten, lol.
Love this resaurant so much mainly because prior to going to orlando i had never in my life eaten in a hard rock cafe. Inside you can see Elvis's pink cadillac and tis just a great experience
Favorite Dish I love the starter platter :) I think its about 21 dollars and you got a variety of of different types of food to try from chicken wings, potato skins, spring rolls and other bits and bobs. All with a number of dips :)
The restaurant was lovely. We enjoyed it alot. I was with my two kids, Joshua and Noel, and my niece, Tiffany and nephew, Jason. This was their first "Hard Rock" experience and they enjoyed looking at all the artifacts on the walls.
Favorite Dish I had the hot wings and celery w/bleu cheese dressing and Unsweetened iced tea. Joshua and Jason had burgers and O rings. The girls had chicken fingers and fries.
They all had sodas. Everyone was pleased with their food.
With large, statuesque pillars, it stands prominently as a Roman Coliseum of rock, and boasts more pieces of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia than any other location. The site includes not only a vast, multilevel dining area, but Hard Rock Live Orlando—a 3,000 person party and concert venue.
Favorite Dish THE HARD ROCK HURRICANE: The London HRC favorite recipe that has swept across the globe, AVAILABLE IN ITS OWN 23 OZ TAKE-HOME SOUVENIR GLASS.
NASCAR Sports Grille is a world class gathering place for the tremendously loyal NASCAR faithful & anyone with a passion for sports, good food, & a great time. The food is fantastic and the combination of fun and fast sports with an energetic atmosphere make for a great experience.
I found a discount for buy one drink get one free at a local coupon site: orlandocoupons.com. It sounds like a great deal, and why not try something new for a free drink?
Favorite Dish My favorite dish was 'The Hangover' which goes for $13.49, and it is a seasoned burger patty topped with melted pepper jack cheese, bacon marmalade & a fried egg. Served on a toasted Kaiser roll.
Since we had plenty of time before dinner, we took about an hour to walk all over CityWalk to check out the different restaurants' menus and atmosphere. The one that seemed the most appealing to me regarding those two aspects turned out to be the Hard Rock Cafe. The Orlando franchise is billed as this chain's largest restaurant in the world and I have no problem believing it: the place is huge! We showed up on a fairly busy Friday night and while there were long lines at all of the other restaurants, and even though the Hard Rock Cafe was packed, they still managed to sit us right away at a nice table on the second floor. Despite the crowd, the service was remarkably fast, and our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Of course the music was loud, but that's what you want and expect when you eat at a Hard Rock Cafe! I got a kick out of watching old videos and my husband got a kick out of watching me sing along to old rock songs from the 80s :o) My dinner started out with a very refreshing strawberry basil lemonade and then I had the grilled chicken aragula salad: both were surprisingly delicious! Since they specialize in American cuisine and just about everything else on the menu seemed to be fried, I didn't expect they could come up with such a good salad :o) All in all, it was a really good experience and a really fun way to spend an evening at CityWalk!
Here you can burgers, fajitas, steaks and more. This all in a restaurant full of Rock and Roll Memorabilias. The music the play is offcourse rock and roll. Servers are always in the mood to sing for someone who is having his or her birthday and the will try to get the whole restaurant to sing..
So a great place to take someone who is having his or her birthday..
They opened this restaurant twice !
Once in June 7, 1990 and then in December 11, 1998.
Why did they open twice ?
Well one of our server told us that the place the restaurant was before (about 200 meters from where it is now.) is now being used as an entrance of Island of adventure so the moved it stone by stone to rebuild and reopen it.
Favorite Dish I love the sizzling fajitas, and the really sizzle when you get them on a hot plate.

This was one of the most fun nights I have had in a while. The atmosphere is unlike any other Universal City Walk restaurant. The servers are so much fun and entertaining.
I ordered the purple haze cocktail which was recommended by my waiter and it was great!
For dinner I had the pulled chicken sandwich with fries and my husband had the barbecue chicken and both were phenomenal. We will definitely be returning for great food and fun time!
Yes-they do want you to eat here. YOu know the menu and pizazz if you have been to any in the world.
