I remember the first time I went into a Hard Rock Cafe. It was awesome. It was memorable! I was amazed at all of the iconic decor and memorabilia. It was so awesome, I loved all the music themed history everywhere. I grew up listening to a lot of these bands so getting to see what they had in real life was pretty awesome. Heck, I remember at the original Hard Rock in Phoenix, there was even a car in the middle of the restaurant! Now, it had been a few years since I have been to a Hard Rock Cafe but we went recently to celebrate Brian’s new job. In downtown Phoenix, it was a perfect spot for us to meet up as we had both been in Tempe and it was a great location to meet on the way home.

I’ll be honest, after a long day and it being 112 degrees outside I just wanted to go home but found the atmosphere (and of course, air conditioning) to be quite refreshing for a pick me up. I love that they play music videos from now and the past. I ordered a smoothie which hit the spot and we were in time for happy hour so we enjoyed half off appetizers. The wings and potato skins were great! Brian had ordered a beer (we were celebrating after all) and I was surprised to find my total at $20. That’s a steal for a celebratory meal for 2! I wish I had spared room for dessert as they looked amazing but unfortunately, I was stuffed!

They had some other amazing food there too:

  • Cajun Shrimp & Poached Pear Salad – Spring mix greens tossed with goat cheese crumbles, chopped seasoned bacon and a sweet Dijon pear dressing. Topped with poached pear segments, spicy pecans and grilled sweet Cajun shrimp.
  • Goat Cheese Chicken Salad Sandwich – Poached chicken with celery and green onions, in a light citrus mayo dressing with Dijon mustard and dill. Served on a toasted hoagie roll topped with spring mix, dried cranberries and goat cheese crumbles.
  • Shock Top Battered Fish & Chips –Fish battered with a Belgian-style wheat beer with citrus and coriander flavors then served with fries, a citrus spiked tartar sauce and homemade coleslaw.

I will definitely make it a point to try and get back to Hard Rock, at least when guests are in town because it is a must see!

So not only do we get to celebrate but I am sharing the celebration with you! I am giving away $50 Hard Rock Cafe card. Yay!

  1. My family and I dined at Hark Rock a few months back. Our service was amazing! My husband and I talk about how no other service will ever live up to the service provided by our waiter that night. The food and beer were delicious, too!

  2. I started collecting hard rock cafe pins when I was young… I always love bopping in and seeing what fun unique pins they have for sale!!

  3. I have never been there, but would love to visit and try the Cajun Shrimp & Poached Pear Salad

  4. i want to try the Shock Top Battered Fish & Chips

  5. My favorite is when we took our kids to the Hard Rock for dinner in Maui. They were in awe of all the items on the walls and loved every minute of it. They stared colloecting their drink glasses. So now anytime we travel they always ask if there is a Hard Rock in that city.

  6. When the Hard Rock opened in Phoenix on Camelback by the Biltmore, I was working at ABCO on 28th street and SEBASTION BACH from Skid Row came in through my line an bought whatever and he had on a hat and sunglasses and said, “keep on rocking” Later that day i realized who it was and was swooning. :)
