Hard Rock Cafe Restaurant Review: Grunge was born in Seattle, but the city is okay hosting this shiny rock-restaurant in a prime downtown space just a block from Pike Place Market. The surprisingly lovely in-city roof deck and event spaces win over most patrons. Walls are covered in cool artifacts, which makes for fun eye candy while dining on various dishes from the vast menu and listening to live music (most evenings). When it first launched, the Hard Rock was famous for its fat, juicy burgers and this hasn't changed. Joining the line-up of pub fare is a selection of grilled steaks and fish ‘n’ chips, plus sizzling fajitas. A smokehouse produces Southern-style ribs and chicken that seem to have been created especially to pair with the extensive selection of craft beers on tap.
