You will find the Orlando branch of the Hard Rock located at Universal Walk , which is part of Universal Studios, not Disney. Universal Walk is similar to Downtown Disney, so you do not need admission from Universal to get into the restaurant.
Most people who come to the Hard Rock do so because either they enjoy the rock’n’roll atmosphere or they are one of those people who are determined to visit as many Hard Rock Cafes as possible.
The food here is typical fare found on the menus of most similar themed restaurants. It consists of burgers, sandwiches, steak, pasta, and salad. They offer a full bar and appetizers, as well as dessert.
John and I were here in November, so it had gotten a bit nippy that evening, even in sunny Florida, so we shared a bowl of Texas Chili. This bean chili included ground beef, onions, Tex-Mex spices, cheddar and jack cheese, tortilla chips, and sour cream. Or hold that off if you’re like us and not too big on sour cream. We both went with sandwiches, with me choosing the Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich and John, the BLT Sandwich. My sandwich came on a toasted bun and offered cucumbers, tomatoes, provolone cheese,
lettuce, a hummus spread, and olive tapenade. For an additional charge, you may add chicken. It comes with a fresh garden salad. John’s BLT was on toasted wheat bread, and it included bacon, tomato, mayo, and two types of lettuce (iceberg and romaine). His order came with fries, but you can get a salad instead.
We had a long day of walking around Seaworld by this point and were pretty hungry, so we also decided to split a dessert and opted for the Hot Fudge Sunday. This calorie-induced dessert included hot fudge over some of the Hard Rock’s own vanilla ice cream as well as nuts, whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry. After that, we were pretty much on full.
While you are waiting for your meal, it is fun to check out the rock’n’roll memorabilia found in just about every nook and cranny of the place. Here you will find album covers, costumes, and musical instruments from just about every
decade and covering a wide variety of musical tastes and talents. Here you will find all-time favorites, such as Kiss, Springsteen, Hendricks, and the Whitesnake, as well as locals, such as Savatage.
The restaurant is open from 11am, and closing time varies by season. The gift shop where you can pick up a T-shirt or pin is open from 9am until the store closes. They serve only lunch and dinner. In busy season or a major holiday, you would be wise to make advanced reservations up to 30 days in advance by going to www.hardrock.com.

We did not go to Universal but just went to go to the restaurant. It was after the hurricane, so many restaurants were still without power. My husband's brother and his family had come to visit us for the day, so we had a nice family dinner.
We took a picture of the kids in front of an Elvis stained-glass, since their grandmother likes Elvis.
