A Hard Rock is a Hard Rock

Hard Rock Pigeon Forge, is unsurprisingly like a Hard Rock anywhere. The food (burger) was very good, the atmosphere friendly and some excellent decor. Our server was lovely and did an excellent job recommending things & being just friendly enough without overstepping.

Hard rock is supposed to be good eats in a rockin atmosphere. Lately I am not so sure, but this visit showed big improvements. Service has always been top notch here, but this visit had some great personalities too. Very knowledgable and very very friendly. A big improvement was actual live music scheduled! I haven't seen that for years. Keep... More

Nice and easy location to get to. Found the inside to be very nice and pleasant and for once the music was not so loud that you could actually hear yourself when placing an order. Not as well decorated with musical stuff as some Hard Rocks. Was disappointed with the sandwich that I ordered and sent it back for another... More

Waited 30 minutes (told wait would be 15-20 minutes)there were several empty tables but they were not cleared.I asked the hostess & she said she could not help it. But people that came in after U.S. were seated Some... More

I admit I love the Hard Rock Café chain and make it a point to go whenever I am in a town that has one. I was a bit surprised that my son requested to go for dinner since it has always been my thing. The new location is HUGE. It is really cool inside. It used to be a... More

The food was very good, but It was a bit pricey, and then there were small children running around, yelling with teenagers chasing them making them sequel even louder, a bit annoying while you are trying to enjoy a $25.00 meal with a $5.00 beer. Please be considerate of other paying customers, it annoyed me so bad, we left.

The food was good, but pricey. Our server was good and even had the manager deduct a meal because a teen in our group did not like what she ordered. The only thing we did not like is that the music was too loud.

We recently stopped in here on a trip to Pigeon Forge. I've always heard that you don't go to the Hard Rock Café for the food and I'd have to agree, it's for the atmosphere. It was a nice place to visit. I can't say the food was bad, because it wasn't, just not the best meal I've ever had.... More
