TAMARA was THE BEST server!!! Imagine this worst case scenario: I am the celiac choir director at my local high school, and am on tour with a large group of teenagers. We stop at Hard Rock Cafe for a group dinner with over 70 people. •The menus were labeled w GF options •The servers knew what I was talking about •The food came out with an allergy flag directly to me, and the server again specified that it was gluten free •The burger was decent. The TATER TOTS were a happy surprise- often places will just default to a salad. •when the group dessert (cookies) didn't work, Tamara made me a HOT FUDGE SUNDAE!!! •I didn't get sick. At all. Not even a little. •Tamara was AMAZING!

When I went I was told that I could only get a salad, so I ordered the Caesar salad with no croutons. However they brought it out without any of the cheese as well. I ended up with just lettuce, and like 6 bites of chicken and that was it. So while it is very safe, it is not recommended for people who want to get a good meal.

Regarding GF, this ok but I won’t seek it out again. Burger with gf bun. GF buns are usually better warmed unless they are fresh, this one was slightly warm. Shared fryer, so no fries. Salad option, coleslaw option.

Service and experience. Move on! I should have moved in when we were ignored at the door for 10 minutes. But we went ahead and we’re sat at a table in the upstairs corner. Long long wait for food - 1 hour - and half the order came before the other half. Yet, bacon on my gf burger was cold, had to send it back. Burger was undercooked and cheese not melted. All signs that the gf meal was an after thought. I also bit on something hard in my burger, looked like a small piece of plastic or chip of plate. Gross. My child’s burger, not gf, perfectly done. They gifted us two deserts for the wait. This was among worst dining experiences I have had in awhile anywhere.

Great service! We were with a very large group and two people had gluten allergies. The servers took extra time with us. Due to covid, they are not at full capacity in the kitchen. We could not get french fries or gluten free dessert. The food ordered was very good.

Waitstaff very knowledgeable and there was a separate gluten free menu with many options available. We tried to order fries, as we had read here that they were baked, however our waiter informed us they had changed the process and instead suggested the nachos, which were unbelievable! My daughter with celiac had no reaction and everyone enjoyed their meals. Awesome experience

Our experience at the Hard Rock Cafe was excellent! The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They had a gluten-free menu with quite a few options. I had the grilled chicken on a brioche bun that was delicious. Also fries from a dedicated fryer. Good sized portions as well.

So. They have a gluten free menu with quite a few options, as well as gluten free buns. The server and the supervisor were both very attentive and assured me that my food would be prepared properly and gluten free. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich and it was delicious.
