  • Fun atmosphere
  • An affordable and varied menu
  • Conveniently located
  • The original rock and roll memorablia.


  • Doesn't take reservations

Guide Review - The Hard Rock Cafe

Cleveland's Hard Rock Cafe is located within the Tower City Complex, right at Public Square. It's attached to the Ritz Carlton Hotel and the Landmark office buildings. You can even walk through a series of passsageways to Progressive Field and the Quicken Loans Arena without going outside.

The Hard Rock Cafe specializes in fun. The walls are covered with original Rock and Roll memorabilia, including Jimmy Page's (Led Zeppelin) guitar, a guitar used by Pearl Jam, and costumes from Devo.

The varied menu features juicy burgers in many different configurations, hand-cut fries, BBQ ribs and chicken, and the house specialty, pulled pork sandwich. Prices are affordable, with most entrees under $15.

The Hard Rock hosts a full schedule of (mostly rock and roll) concerts throughout the year.
