My sister and I had dinner here tonight. It was great! We were greeted by two sweet ladies as soon as we opened the door. We were seated right away even though they looked extremely busy (6:00pm). Our server met us at the table, took our drink order and had our drinks to us in no time. She was extremely... More

Ate there last Friday night. The food was great and they had a live band that started at 9 pm that was really awesome, doing some classic rock.

The Hard Rock Cafe in Pigeon Forge was a great choice for dinner. The atmosphere was quieter than most Hard Rock's I have visited, but it was nice for conversation at the table. The service was quick and friendly. The food was very good. BBQ Chicken, Brisket sandwich, Combo Fajitas and a Burger. Everyone was very pleased with their meal.... More

Service was slow. There were lots of empty tables. The food was expensive and it was very loud. Couldn't visit there often.

My husband and I were so disappointed in our meal, first off we had ribs ( a little tough), pricey, and very hard to substitute any side. It took us ten minutes just to place order, all I mainly wanted was a salad and the ribs. I will just go back to Long Horn Steakhouse, better service, better food and... More

This is a smaller Hard Rock, with a big stage in the middle. Bar is right when you walk in and the store is off to the right. Smallest one we've been in, but the food was still good.

Don't claim you are open late when your kitchen closes early. It is a restaurant, after all... When we walked in a few minutes before 11pm on a Saturday, there was no hostess around. After wondering around a few minutes, we finally ended up at the bar to eat. We couldn't hear the bartended because the music was so loud.... More

Went with a large group and the staff was ready for us. The food was good but typical Hard Rock type food. The servers were quick taking drink and food orders. The food was a bit slow coming from the kitchen.

My husband makes sure we visit every Hard Rock Cafe. We just found out the one in Gatlinburg closed and another one was opened in Pigeon Forge. This one is much larger and has a spacious parking lot. Our server was nice, but everything moved in slow motion. The food was just ok. After lunch, I stood at the bar... More
