As artist Billy Swan sang, "Memphis Rocks!" Located in the cotton-trading capital of the Delta, Memphis virtually invented blues, soul and rock 'n' roll. Once well-known for heavy gambling, voodoo, murder and prostitution, Memphis is just a hard-rocking place where you can get great food and hear hot tunes. Home to both Sun Records and Stax Records, this city has always been foremost in finding talent, and the rollicking live music scene is still kicking hard today. Maybe that's why Memphis is mentioned in more songs than just about any other city. So if you're out "Walking In Memphis" on the "Memphis Streets" and you get yourself a mean case of the "Walkin' Blues," just do the electric slide or "Memphis Boogie" right on into the Hard Rock Cafe Memphis and let us ease you into "Memphis Bliss." Our historic building, set on boogie street Beale, has done time as a recording studio and a saloon - the perfect combination for an electrifying menu that'll make you stomp and shout. Memphis was also Elvis's home, and the only place he ever felt he belonged. So come on down, y'all, for a taste of Southern hospitality and "Good Rockin' Tonight," 'cause you're bound to soon feel the exact same way. And while Elvis may have left the building (on a "Memphis Train?"), you can stay as long as you want. It's a "Memphis Thing."

Hmm, not so great. Actually 2nd time to visit. Both times we sat at the bar. 1st visit was just for drinks. This visit we decided to eat. Ugh, it just wasn't very good. I had the chicken fajitas for $19 and the best thing on the plate was honestly the shredded cheese. The lettuce was wilted, the guacamole didn't... More

Kristina H, I'm sorry to see you weren't happy with your meal. By chance did you ask for a manager or did a manager visit your table so we could remedy the situation? We operate the only scratch-recipe kitchen on Beale Street while other venues are simply frozen to fried. We take a lot of pride in our menu so... More

Great decor and wall decorations - just what you would expect from a Hard Rock Cafe. The food was plentiful and excellent. Good choice of wine and live music. A very enjoyable evening.

We ordered the ribs, they were cold and just ok for flavor. They were will cooked and fell off of the bone. I didn't care for the beans that came with the meal. The coleslaw was just ok, my friend had no dressing on hers. The waitress was pretty much nonexistent to tell her the problems. Won't eat there again.

This was my second time eating at the Hard Rock. It will be the last. The first I had been was a few years ago and the food had been good. I was meeting some friends and we thought this would be a good place to go. I decided to get the ribeye with mac and cheese. It looked great... More

The food and service were both great but the size and layout of this restaurant is not as well laid out as several of the others that we have been to. Our table was right next to the stage for entertainment and very restrictive in space.

We went with our two kids to Hardrock Cafe. Unfortunately we were very disappinted. Neither our food nor the kid's food tasted well. In additions my daughters pasta was only luke warm. Not what we expected. Food was one star. I gave a second star for the decoration.

This was a LATE night visit and it was GREAT! The service was fast and friendly and the food was tasty and reasonable. Even got some Ice Tea to go without having to ask the server... He absolutely was a step ahead of us on what we wanted. Can't wait to go back...

The only good things I can say about this place is that the waiter we had was very nice and there was a good live band on the night we visited (Rachael Wise band). However the food was awful and I genuinely couldn't eat it. I would not return even if you paid for my meal.
