Newer facility - very clean and fun atmosphere. Kids love it here (ages 6 and 3) and the food is really good - maybe a tad overpriced.

My boyfriend and I both got that Legendary Burger, and it was delicious. Prices are not bad at all, normal for the experience of a fun, busy... More

Great burgers, Good kids menu, but $80 for lunch (4 adults, 2 kids) I find pricy. But then this was Hard Rock.

Went in early afternoon looking for specials but was deceived by staff and put in area where specials were not offered. Make sure you sit at the bar for their early specials.

The service was excellent. The food was good. It was hard to have a conversation over supper as the music was very loud.

Visited the new Hard Rock in Pigeon Forge which replaced the one in Gatlinburg. Food was good although beer was very pricey. Had a band that played a good variety of music. Was a bit disappointed in the memorabilia in that there seemed to be much less than in the Gatlinburg location. But my wife got to see the Rev's... More
