Don't be confused. There is a Hard Rock Cafe shop within walking distance from the terminal where the cruise ships dock. However, this is only a shop, not a restaurant If you want this restaurant, you must take a taxi 7-10 miles to the HRC at Palm Beach. It is surrounded by lots of other shops and restaurants and is...

My family stopped in for some traditional American appetizers as a break from the all inclusive resort fare. We had the nachos and cheese sticks. Just ok... Service was also average as it was not a busy and appeared as though initially nobody wanted to wait our table.

While I was in Aruba there was a Hard Rock down the street from where I stayed. I had an excellent bartender named Chase!!! He made our experience wonderful and made it hard to leave the island! Great job Chase for being great at your job and a kind human being!!! Cant wait to come back and visit you!

The first port on our Caribbean cruise was Aruba, which gave us a chance to tick another Hard Rock Café off the list. From the outside it only looked small, but there was a large outdoor seating area that doubled the size. The temperature outside was in the 80's but the air con inside was decidedly cool, nice at first... More

This is a very casual and fun place to eat. It's great for kids and they have a variety of burgers and other pub type foods. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is very casual. The location is also great as it is in the middle of all the action. You have stalls outside that only open up at... More

Thank you so much for your review and comments. Seems like you had a good time with us and enjoyed our fajitas. We know its a little high compare to US prices (16$ p/burger) but the island has heavy taxes and everything has to be imported and this add to the final product; but we can assure you that we...

Four of us ate here in January. All four of us got our meals at different times...not sure why, as it wasn't busy when we were there. The food is the same as in the states...wished we would have tried a local restaurant instead of eating at the same old same old...

Description
NO ONE HAS EVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE IT. Our first landlord in London thought it so improbable he'd only give our shaggy-haired founders a three-month lease. That was more than 40 years ago. But from day one, we were serious about serving fresh, handmade, classic American cooking with a Southern flair that couldn't help but reflect co-founder Isaac Tigrett's Tennessee roots. Even as our menu expands to encompass the best of local cuisines around the world, serving up the good stuff is still and forever our gig.
