This Hard Rock is perfectly located. We enjoyed sitting outside killing some time and watching the fountains and river. Our drinks were good and our Spinach Artichoke Dip appetizer was very good as well. We enjoyed our afternoon respite from a warm day sitting outside watching it all pass us by. Of course we had to get our hard rock... More

We visited this location this past weekend and we got sat right away (on a Saturday evening). Our server was awesome and he did a great job making sure we were satisfied with everything and having a great time. The only thing I didn't like was the drinks, I had gone to the Hard Rock in Baltimore, MD 2 weekends... More

Thank you so much for your feedback, it is always great to have a Raving Fan. I apologize for the drinks not being perfect, we are going to review alcohol pours with our bar team to make sure they are hitting the right amount in each drink. Reading that you have visited the Baltimore Hard Rock recently as well, I... More

I've been a resident of Pittsburgh for eleven years, and have only been to the HRC at Station Square twice. Once was to buy t-shirts for out of state friends, and today's trip was to take a visiting intern co-worker from San Diego. Station Square seems to have lost some of it's hustle, and bustle from previous years, but Hard... More

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
