One can still get a good meal at these places

I haven't been in a Hard Rock in several years as they are a bit past their time. But, in the Pigeon Forge area, I was a bit concerned with dining at some of the establishments in the area as they appeared dated, buffet style, or just not welcoming. So, my adult daughter and myself decided to... read more

The restaurant is a typical Hard Rock Cafe. Loud music, bar type food, lots of logo items for sale and fairly expensive for a family. Our teen boys didn't think much of it.

It's become a tradition to stop in and snag a Hard Rock Cafe souvenir glass when I pass by one for the first time. The food was pretty good and atmosphere even better! By the time I finished walking around checking out the various artists stuff... The food arrived at our table!! Thanks :)

The music quotes and the other memorabilia was so cool to look at. The food was so good. The store appealed to all types of people. They even let us get up on stage to take pictures.

This was my 70th Hard Rock location to visit. Inside, it is one large room with a large bar area as you walk in. They have tables between the bar and the stage as well with more off to the sides. The food was standard HRC fare served with a friendly smile. They have plenty of interesting memorabilia with rock,... More

My husband and I both got burgers, and they were good. Just a bit pricey for what it is. Seems like your paying more for the atmosphere. We went for lunch and had no wait time. Service was good.

We usually go to a Hard Rock Café when we go on vacation. We found ourselves looking forward to visiting this one. We walked right in at 5P on a FRI night. That should of been a warning.

For starters, was cool that they had live music, but the hostess was going to put us in a back corner, had to request to be moved to a table to be able to see, waiter was nice, and food was so-so. Then a little girl kept popping up from the lower level, that wasn't bad as kids will be... More

HRC was not our first choice for dinner but the parking lot that is laughingly called the parkway was not drivable by anyone with patience less than Job, so we walked across the street from our hotel. Kevin was an awesome server/bartender. Besides the excellent service he was friendly, personal and laughed at all of our stories. Wife had the... More
