Hard Rock: Dining & lounges

The Kitchen

Incarnating hip and groove, this casual all-day eatery with eclectic décor is the only place to rub elbows with rock legends as they cook up something good at the Chef’s Table. This one-of-a-kind full-service restaurant in Orlando features comfort food with a tinge of Southern twang. Lil’ rockers can chill in the ‘Kid’s Crib’ on bean bag chairs, while catching some TV and enjoying a meal.

  • Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Character dining on Saturday nights from 6:00pm – 9:00pm (always verify schedule with concierge).
  • Kid’s Crib: Kids can hang out in the Kid’s Crib and eat on kid-sized furniture while watching their favorite cartoons. Activities on select nights include character dining, “Kids Can Cook” nights, and other entertainment.
  • For reservations, call 407-503-DINE (3463) or book online.

Palm Restaurant

World-renowned for its prime cuts of meat and succulent Nova Scotia lobsters, along with classic American fare and Italian specialties, Palm Restaurant is the perfect place for a hearty meal in a classic New York style atmosphere. The cartoon caricatures of celebrities drawn on the walls hearken back to the original Palm Restaurant’s roots in the newspaper district of Manhattan, where famous cartoonists would often exchange drawings for their meals.

  • This is Hard Rock Hotel’s fine dining restaurant.
  • Open daily for dinner.
  • Reservations are recommended. Call 407-503-7256 or book online.
