Hard Rock Cafe Cleveland: Great Music, Food, & Fun
Update: Hard Rock is now closed. Check out more fun things to do in Cleveland!
Great food, great music, and a lively atmosphere await you at Hard Rock Cafe Cleveland. Located in Tower City Center, a shopping, dining & entertainment plaza in downtown Cleveland, Hard Rock is the perfect addition to a night out in the city. Whether you choose a full meal, grab a few drinks at the bar, or just shop in the Rock Shop, you are bound to have a memorable time.
Cleveland was our first stop on our road trip from Boston to Illinois. When we found out that there was a Hard Rock in Cleveland, we had to stop for dinner as we are trying to visit every US location. We have visited over 15 different Hard Rock locations across the US. I really liked this location, particularly due to the friendly service and fantastic location.
We needed to add another signature Hard Rock logo glass to our collection, so we ordered a vanilla shake. If you buy a drink at Hard Rock, you will receive a discount on the
logo glass. If you are going to buy the glass anyways, it makes sense to buy a drink as you will will only by paying a few bucks for the glass. We used to collect the Pilsner glasses, unfortunately, Hard Rock stopped carrying them a few years ago. We now collect the Hurricane glasses.
For an appetizer, we ordered the spring rolls. Best appetizer ever! We always order these at every Hard Rock. Spring rolls are a delicious combination of: black beans, spinach, cilantro, jalapenos, red peppers, and cheese. You also get 2 delicious dipping sauces. If you are new to Hard Rock, you must try out the spring rolls!
Hard Rock’s “Twisted Mac and Cheese” is excellent: the sauce is mildly spicy which gives it a unique kick. I ordered the side dish because the full size entree is
enormous. A side of steamed broccoli went well with the macaroni.
Mike ordered the Turkey Burger, which came with tomato, avocado, and red onions. This is one of his favorite turkey burgers out of all the chains.
Overall, Hard Rock Cafe Cleveland was a great night out. Make sure to stop by the huge guitar in front of the restaurant: great photo opportunity!
If you park in the Tower City parking lot, you can receive validated parking from Hard Rock. We received a discount of $4, making our total $4 for 1.5 hours of parking. Not
bad for a major city!
