I've visited many Hard Rick Cafes thorough the years. Been willing to sacrifice food quality for atmosphere. However, it is obvious new attention has been given to the menus. Food is above average and the atmosphere remains.

Huge let down. I was looking forward to trying this restaurant. The atmosphere was great. Large food portions. Food was less than average and not something I would want again. Horrible waiter who was quite a smart-aleck. We left disappointed.

The Hard Rock Cafe moved from Gatlinburg, TN to Pigeon Forge, TN and at first I was hoping it was just a new location. Actually, after our visit. I won't miss the Gatlinburg location. The free parking and more space to enjoy the ambiance. With that said, there seemed to be less memorabilia then in the old location. Maybe it... More

I went here for my 23rd birthday with 6 of my friends. I've been to several Hard Rock Cafe's, but this was one of my favorites! The people were great, and the band that played were fantastic. They played a great variety of music, that we could all sing/dance along to. I got the Twisted Mac n Cheese, and it... More

The Hard Rock has moved from Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge! Yay! Great new dogs, new memorabilia, great parking, food and music...live music. Don't miss the new Hard Rock! Everything I've come to expect from them!
