We had a nice meal at Hard Rock Cafe the first night in Manchester. We were 17 people and felt that the waiter wanted us to leave right after the meal, he pushed the bill 3-three times before we were done. We also missed the genuine music and athmosfare we find at other Hard Rock Cafes.

Visited here late Thursday night. Staff very friendly great service. Hubby got a burger and beer and I got chicken sandwich and boozy milkshake think the bill was about £35 which is bit on expensive but worth it for the surroundings and the food was lovely.

Great venue, visited a few times in our 2 days in the city, food always good although a bit overpriced, but having a live band playing on Friday night made it a fantastic night

Me and my 10 year old daughter enjoyed a lovely lunch here back in October before seeing a concert later that night in Manchester. The food was brilliant, came quickly and was hot even though it was a very busy Saturday during half term. We both enjoyed what we had ordered (fajitas for myself and a cheese burger for my... More

Visited a few hard rock cafes and this one does not disappoint. Service was first rate, food excellent and loved looking at the memorabilia. Music was also so good, shazammed everything played and have a great play list.

Been here 2 or 3 times before & this one was by far the worse but won't stop me visiting. Don't get me wrong I love this place & generally is really good. I usually draw the line at inflated costs for chains but as I like this chain so much I draw an exception to this place This time... More

It's like coming home.....My husband and I are regulars of the Hard Rock Cafe wherever we go. Caroline, Andy and the rest of the amazing team surpassed all expectations. Food was exceptional, recommendations were spot on, music was brilliant. Above all the atmosphere and welcoming nature which make hard rock a home away from home was definitely achieved at this...
