Just stopped in for a couple of beers. Because of the weather it was very busy, but the bartender was great at getting every body served, They where a little short, but did a great job. Beers where cold, typical Hard Rock decor. Nice place...to take a rest. Friendly staffMore

We typically wouldn’t have sought out a Hard Rock Cafe, but we were ready for a drink and decided to pop in. We are glad we did! In addition to wonderful cocktails and view, we enjoyed wonderful service. We were there at an “off time”...and there weren’t any other patrons at the bar; we chatted with the bartender (Ronald) for a bit and his conversation and hospitality was outstanding!More

Thanks to the staff at HRC Cayman for a lovely lunch after our excursion. Our server Flo was so friendly and had perfect timing. The manager Larry came by to ask how everything was and he was kind and answered all our questions about the...island. Hurricane cocktail was just so delicious. The sliders and chic tenders tossed in buffalo sauce were very good!More

I came here for celebrate Indian Independence Day with friends. They offer buffet for the day. They close the buffet without any last call that’s means they just make money from to guest and the bar lady was so rude when I ask for food...from to buffet. Ridiculous I’ll never come this place again in future.More

Location is near the port dock and has a great view. Fast, friendly, and air-conditioned. The BBQ pork sandwich, and BBQ bacon burger were delicious. Enjoyed the Ironshore Bock beer from the local brewery.

We paid almost $20 for two local 12oz. draft beers, thank goodness I didn’t order the “pint” she tried to push on us. I can’t blame anyone but myself, I didn’t ask. What a ripoff joint!!!

On first visit, I ordered the half rack baby back ribs. Let me tell you it was filled with so much flavor and so tender. Even the bone had flavor. Can't comment enough about it. My son ordered the Guinness Burger, let me tell you...my burger connoisseur was highly impressed. My family and I went one evening, even the kids asked to return. We came back; I am here as I type. The NY Strip steak is so good too. It is definitely worth a trip. There is so much to try. It will remain one of our to-go places on the island. The servers are so friendly and even remembered us from our last visit. Remnants of our ribs and steak... in photo. Don't forget kids eat free for free all day everday...More

I go to each HRC that I come accross. I went gladly to this one, situated on the beach with the most beatiful view. At the beginning I thought that there is only one member od staff, but they are more 😊. The service was...great, the ribs were great. The place is swell. Somehow dearer than other branches.More

I was especially satisfied with the service and friendly nature of the bartender in attendance, Ben. He certainly had a good attitude towards his work and was really engaging and warm. At one point I almost forgot that I was at a bar and not...at home with my friends because I really felt at home and comfortable with his service. His aura certainly added in making my experience better. My aim had been to just go and enjoy a drink or two but never would I have thought that I would have made a friend in the process. He's certainly the type many bartenders should emulate. Excellent customer service and a really great mixer. I will certainly be coming back with a friend or two so they could experience what I have. Awesome. I was really really impressed with the whole ambiance of the place!More

Food was lovely, we had mixed sharer and some fries. There was so much flavour, everything was really nice. Staff were friendly and helpful. Beer was good. Only criticism is my partner is allergic to avocados, we got served the spring rolls which come with...an guacamole dip mixed with ranch dressing, so it didn't look like guacamole. I stopped him before he tried it luckily. Maybe an information sheet on the dips ingredients.More

There's about a 6" step and NO indication of any accessible entry. Plus, of course, the restaurant seems to be upstairs with only the gift shop on the first floor. Left hungry to return to the ship for lunch :'(

This is a local "burger" joint with great worldwide acclaim. It is good, decent, clean and friendly--all that is necessary to be average. Is is a 4? Compared to all other similar places in the world--no! Will I return? Absolutely! The fully loaded nacho appetizer...is a great snack along with the local Cayman beer--which is excellent. The combination if the two is a wonderful snack (and a welcome change of pace) for cruise ship travelers. The decor is very nice, but similar to the other HRC sites. Our grandkids liked the place an lot and had fun here. The prices may be a bit high, but you are in Grand Cayman--they have to ship in everything! Just sit back and enjoy the city--our seventh visit & we never seem to tire if the place. Yere is a lot to do and see here if you are into luxury shopping. Additional information for scuba divers only. We have made numerous dives on Grand Cayman-- over 60 dives. We didn't have the time to do one here because we only do the dives on the three sides other than the west wall. The west wall gets all the "dive traffic" and it shows. The other three are pristine, great and beautiful. If you have a stop for a day or two here, plan your dives well in advance and get ALL your transportation lined up prior to your arrival. A quick and easy one is the Stingray City "dive" which is very shallow (5 to 10 feet depending on tides), but it is an easy and wonderful interaction dive with the rays--that tend to stay low in the water. It is a close in dive--in the big open bay east of Georgetown. We would not snorkel it, but if that is your only option.... If the timing is right (and this is critical), is the Tarpon Alley dive in conjunction with the Valley of The Rays on the North Wall is really special. The North Wall dives are subject to bad weather/high waves FREQUENTLY. By the way, the visibility in these waters is typically very good.More

Yes! It's a very short walk from the cruise ship terminal. You can see it on the right hand side as you come in by tender.
