It was alright

My husband and I both got the club and it seemed bland but aside from that the waitresses are upbeat and very attentive. We made sure to give ours a good tip. Would definitely give it a second chance.

My husband and I were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary and we've always liked Hard Rock Cafe so we decided this would be our choice. The music was awesome. We sang along and had a good time. He got the steak I got chicken tenders. Both were so excellent! The steak was cooked just as asked and the tenders... More

This visit began horribly as four friends and I sat down at our table with Taylor Swift playing across the sound system and then that same crappy Taylor Swift song played 4 more times in the next 15 minutes! Katie, our server, said that someone had accidentally requested the song multiple times and so the place got to sounding normal... More

My wife and I had Valentine's Day dinner at this restaurant. We enjoyed it very much. Our server Lisa was excellent. I had a ribs and chicken combo, and she had a salad I couldn't pronounce the name of. There was also a young woman performing an acoustic show on the stage. She performed everything from Fleetwood Mac to Skynyrd.... More

I really enjoyed having lunch here. I am sure dinner is a lot more crowded. I liked all the different displays from artists on the wall.

We love visiting Hard Rock Cafe wherever we travel and this was probably the smallest we've ever seen! This Hard Rock is waaayyy too small for the Pigeon Forge tourist trap. There is only one main dining area with a couple small areas on the sides. They also have some tall, round two-tops around the bar area that are first... More
