Please note that Hard Rock Cafe has moved from Downtown Gatlinburg to Sevierville, TN not to far from Gatlinburg it is located beside Hatfield @ McCoy. Still great place to eat, drink, and enjoy music.

Went there in March, had a great time, kids were very fascinated with the memorabilia, enjoyed the music and always as usual the best burgers.

I didn't eat at the Hard Rock but stopped in to get a tee shirt. There is plenty of parking and the building is huge. There was live music happening outside on the patio and it was very good. The sales clerks were very helpful.

If you like paying $12 for a preformed frozen burger not cooked to order or $6.50 for a kids meal, then look no further. The atmosphere was not as expected either, just a big open room with a few pieces of memorabilia and music videos playing. Definitely not worth the $50 paid for two adults and two kids to eat...

It being Hard Rock, I would have thought we'd wait a while. But we got in super quickly considering it was a summer Friday night. As always, the food is amazing. I had some grown up mac and cheese that was a little spicy, but OMG it was delicious.

I needed help with my son. So he can find these drums of his favorite drummer. The ladies there waited on him, a 15 year old, that was with his grandmother, to give him the tour and show him where they were. I don't have one bad word to say about that place. Everyone was so pleasant and so nice.... More

We walked in and the music was blaring. the hostess said there would be a little wait, which was fine but she was not very friendly at all. The waitress was one of the worst I have seen. Just based on the atmosphere and the people working that I encountered I would not go back or recommend this place.
