A friendly waiter greeted me at the entrance. I was offered hand sanitation, much appreciated having the coronavirus outbreak in mind, and I was swiftly taken to my table. I was offered a choice of seating options, which was a nice touch.
Specials were explained, menu was shown, order was taken and food arrived quickly.
I ordered a Hurricane cocktail, ribs and a burger.
They arrived one by one with enough time in-between to allow for steady consumption.
Everything was absolutely delicious.
Fresh, full of flavour, soft and tender, warm, sweet, lovely.
The waiter was friendly, funny, knowledgeable, approachable and made me feel welcome.
The interior was rock-themed, quirky and interesting.
Various rock classics were being played and music videos could be seen on the TVs dotted around the place.
Overall it was a fantastic experience, and I would recommend this place to anyone in the area.

Lovely food but we were sadly let down by the wrong food being brought out by the waitress. When we told her she didn’t offer any apology she abruptly replied ‘fine I’ll take it away’
A very nice man I assume was the manager came over shortly after and apologised and told us the replacement meal would follow in 6-8 minutes. We understand mistakes happen but we do feel this one waitress ruined the experience with her unpleasant attitude and we didn’t get to eat our mains together as my partner had nearly finished his by the time mine arrived. We would have left the establishment but we had tickets booked for a show and didn’t have time to make alternative arrangements.

My experience here has been absolutely amazing! It was my partners birthday and he loves it there, they included balloons and the shoutout was amazing! Definitely one to remember.
The food was soo delicious! You get quite a lot for what you pay for. The waitor who served us was lovely! So nice and didn't give anything away that something was going to happen for my partner.
I'd definitely be recommending to everyone and we already have plans to go back! Cannot wait!

Our visit to the Hard Rock Manchester was excellent. We had requested a booth upon reservation and we were seated at one upon arrival. Our host was welcoming, and our server Jakub was excellent and incredibly helpful. The atmosphere was good and we had the space and time to look around at the rock memorabilia on the walls. We will definitely visit again and would highly recommend this Hard Rock Cafe to everyone.

£29 steak with no flavour at all. Fries nasty. Onion rings soggy. Service very slow. Starter chewy shrimp. Manager cleared our table and did not ask if everything had been okay given that we had barely eaten anything. Barman rude “you can’t stand there”. Cocktail list very limited. Apart from that, well worth a visit.

We were celebrating our son’s birthday and were told on arrival he would get a shout out , this didn’t happen ! He sat and watched others get the Birthday treatment but didn’t bother to do his. £2.85 for a kids lemonade is outrageous ! I booked the table in my name but when we got there it was under someone else’s name despite having the confirmation email ? Not a great experience for £105 pounds!!
