The Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls, NY is located across the street from the parking lot at Niagara Falls State Park, on the U.S side of the Falls.
As one would expect at a Hard Rock, the decor consists of music memorabilia hung on the walls, including autographed portraits, platinum records, etc. There are a few enclosed rooms that provide a shield to the loud music of the main room where the bands play.
What we ordered: I was really craving a good burger and went with the Red, White and Blue Burger. The 1/2 lb burger was seasoned with spicy buffalo sauce and cajun seasonings and then cooked medium-well, just the way I ordered it. The thick, juicy patty was flavorful but not too spicy. It was topped with bleu cheese and a giant fried onion ring, with a side of buffalo sauce for dipping. The burger was delicious and way too big for me to eat in one sitting (but I expected an big, awesome burger when paying $13.95)
My companion ordered the Legendary Burger, a thick juicy burger with bacon and cheddar. Good choice!
Overall Impression: This was one of just a few visits I have ever made to any of the many world-wide Hard Rock Cafe locations and it was a fun time. The service was great, the food was really good and prepared quickly, and the live music is fun, cheap entertainment.
And just because it was so beautiful, I will leave you with a photo I took of Niagara Falls at dusk, just before dinner at Hard Rock.
