I’m from Pittsburgh but moved out of state 14 years ago. With family and friends in town, we’re in Pittsburgh pretty regularly. This, however, was my first trip to Hard Rock Cafe. My husband and I stopped here after purchasing tickets to the Ducky Tour (which I’d also recommend) and received a voucher from the Tour for 15% off our... More

Just like all other chain restaurants,this one is no different. Not the biggest or fanciest Hard Rock, but definitely have good food to offer. On Steeler sundays, have trivia game giveaways which is nice. Located in Station Square, it is very nice place to come and have a few drinks and some appies or a sandwich.

Located in station square. Train enthusiasts can sit outside and watch trains go by-CSX line. The restaurant overlooks the bay. There are fountains and music to enjoy.

Had a quick lunch here whilst visiting Pittsburgh. We sat outside without knowing we would be entertained by the dancing fountains which was an added bonus. I had the chicken & bacon sandwich with fries and it was huge. We all enjoyed out lunch and didn’t find it overly priced either. Staff were very friendly and rushed out meal though... More

I have been to Hard Rock Cafe's around the world, and they are pretty much the same. Busy, high priced, good music, same look and feel. This isn't a good or a bad thing, just my comment. We stopped in for a drink on the patio. The patio hostess was awesome, we tipped her for being so fun and friendly.... More

I have been to several Hard Rock's in my travels, the location is great at Station Square, but the menu is limited. The combo appetizer is good for a crowd and the burgers are good, pricey, but it is the HRC, so, you can expect that. Servers there are always nice. The atmosphere is nice, sometimes the music is a... More

Thank you for your comments and for being a fan.
