Stopped in while walking around in the area to cool off on a hot August day. We shared an appetizer (the trio) and enjoyed it. The salsa was spicy HOT and good. Our drinks were fine. Waiter was pleasant too

While being a chain may not be everyone's thing, I enjoy visiting all the Hard Rock Cafes and seeing the memorabilia. I like the fact they play music videos and the food is decent bar type food. The beer is always very cold as well.

Thank you NDtraveler92 for your review of the Hard Rock Cafe from your recent visit. I hope were able to get some insight to our one-of-kind memorabilia, a number of pieces were placed due to the artist special relationship to Pittsburgh. It really brings the pieces to life. More

The Hard Rock is the same pretty much anywhere that you eat at one, but food is good, prices not bad,and atmosphere cool. This one had an outdoor seating area (Burgh weather permitting) with views of the river, city, and the fountain that is orchestrated to the music playing on the square.

This was a comfortable, clean, and enjoyable spot to have after dinner drinks and smoke (cigar) by the riverfront.

We decided to try Hard Rock because we've been to the one in Niagara Falls, NY. We had someone with us that had never been to one. Station Square is a great location. Parking was an issue because they closed the street for a summer concert. We had to park in the garage for $10.00 We were immediately seated. Our... More

We had lunch on the patio. Umbrellas for shade. The fountain is great...a rival to Disney...well, it does dance to music. We played guess that show and song. Food was great! My chicken club was good and almost had too much meat. We were constantly waiting for our drinks to be refilled though.

The Hard Rock Pittsburgh is a lovely restaurant in beautiful Station Square! The restaurant is impressive and was a good choice for lunch after going on a tour of the city via Molly's Trollies. Servers were friendly and attentive, and the food was very good. The rear dining room offers a beautiful view of Pittsburgh across the river and a... More

I wasn't too sure about eating dinner at another Hard Rock Cafe, since we had a very "meh" experience in San Francisco a few years. But I'm glad we ate at the Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh. The service was excellent -- I think we had the same Emily who was praised in an earlier review -- and the food... More

We took family visiting from out of town to Station Square for what was to be a beautiful evening on HRC's outdoor patio. We experienced probably the worst service I have ever experienced. It appeared our server was overwhelmed with too many tables (both inside and outside), while other servers seemed to have only one or two tables. After we... More
