Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

We had our son's rehearsal dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe Indianapolis and I would like to commend the staff for their wonderful service at the dinner. The planning was easy thanks to the Sales Department. They were extremely responsive and helpful. The sales manager was even at the dinner, helping set up and oversee details! Our servers did a fabulous job! They were so nice and fun as well. We will recommend your restaurant to all our friends--thanks!

Our company had the pleasure of hosting our customers at the Hard Rock Cafe in Indianapolis for a very fun 'Island Party'. Sarah Baird was fantastic to work with...very enthusiastic, helpful and professional! Sarah went out of her way to make sure every detail was taken care of, even coordinating with the limo service and the band to ensure everything went smoothly. The staff that worked the party were GREAT and contributed to the success of the evening. Everyone had a wonderful time and most  of the staff in our office still have their leis hanging around! The next day, customers were all talking about how much fun they had. Kudos to Sarah Baird and the rest of the staff for making our "Island Party" memorable!

Hampton Inn

I wanted to take a moment to say just how wonderful the relationship has been with the Hampton Inn Downtown Indianapolis and the Hard Rock Cafe.  I have been working with the Sales Manager, Sarah Baird, for several years now and she has never failed when it comes to meeting all of my high expectations that are expected when they are called upon to cater an event for the hotel. Details are always perfect and the quality of service is superb!! I would recommend Hard Rock Cafe to cater any type of event that is held at my hotel.  Kudos to Sarah Baird for always going above and beyond to provide outstanding customer service.  I will forever be loyal to HRC because of her.
