Great restaurant, even though it's a chain!

I am not typically a fan of chain restaurants. However, the advantage to chains is the consistency in what you get. At HRC, the fajita meal is always consistently good. The service at this HRC is friendly and efficient!

Great location but food not Sooo good. We had two couples there for a noon lunch on a Wednesday. I ordered Bruschetta appetizer as my lunch. More than enough in quantity. But I needed a chainsaw to cut it. I tried to eat the center because it was a little softer but I couldn't cut the pieces. We were on... More

Went to Hard Rock a few weeks ago before a concert. What a disappointment. Despite having a great waiter, it took forever to get our food from the kitchen. I thought I was playing it safe by ordering a burger. My medium well hamburger was burned to a crisp - inedible. It was so late and the concert was about... More

I couldn't get home fast enough to write this. I have made my last food/beverage purchase at Hard Rock Cafe. Not just this Hard Rock. Any Hard Rock. Several days ago, I slammed HRC after taking my family to eat at the one in D.C. Bottom line with HRC is A) if you've seen one, you've seen them all (with... More

We had dinner here after a full day in Pittsburgh. We normally try to eat at local places, but we had three kids with us, one of which is a picky eater, so we stopped in. We sat on the patio. A great choice since you could see the fountains and hear the music playing. Our waiter was John and... More

I have to say out of the 12 plus Hard Rock Cafe's I have been to, Pittsburgh so far is in the top three, they all are good, but the staff made the difference here, super friendly and helpful. Great food and decor, great location and view! Look forward to my return visits!

I love the atmosphere of the Hard Rock. The food is overpriced for what you receive and I didn't think the menu choices were that great. Our waiter was very awesome! One of the drink glasses had a large crack in it and we did get a new drink right away. Because of the crack, we received a free dessert.

Traveled in from out of town. A bit tired. Sat out back at Station Square on patio. Inside there was a live performance, I have no idea who was playing. Waitress was fine, but, the menu seemed really limited to me, like it was an afterthought. And nothing really appealed to me (again, I had traveled and was a bit... More

While the food is so-so and overpriced, you can't beat the ambiance of the Hard Rock for music enthusiasts. If you are lucky enough to go there when they have live music or an event going on it is great. We've also gone, not for food, but just for drinks, and their drinks and bar service are great.

Food was good waitress fantastic. Pricey for burgers. The location was good. Sits on the river so if you get to sit outside that is a plus. It is right in the heart of Station Square and was great.
