Very nice cafe, with good service and friendly staff. We did not try the food because we wanted to try the food at the Yankee Stadium, but menu looked very nice

Great atmosphere and food is very good - visit here after a tour of the|Yankee Stadium. The staff are very attentive and there are some great T. shirts to purchase. The memorabillia on the walls are very interesting and the TV's surround all the walls of the restaurant and are great viewing for rock fans old or young!

I ate here for lunch prior to seeing my first game at the new Yankee Stadium. It's your typical Hard Rock fare but it was good. Service was good. A little pricier than the normal Hard Rock but I didn't care it was worth it. I got the T-shirt and added to my 25+ collection of Hard Rock shirts.

We stopped for a drink before our tour of Yankee Stadim. Good service. memorabilia is related to the Yankees. So guitars with pin stripes. It's small compared to other Hard Rocks so limited memorabilia on the walls. Still worth the visit.

Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you enjoyed. We are a bit smaller than most cafes and have limited wall space to hang memorabilia, but, the pieces we have chosen to hang all have a connection to New York, Yankee Stadium, or both. We were able to add the pieces that we aquired from Anthrax and Megadeth when they performed at the stadium for the Big 4 Concert and will hopefully acquire more from the future concerts.

Fairly solid, but nothing spectacular. Coming from the UK, I found it a bit disturbing having all the calories on show! This is a NY thing rather than a Hard Rock thing, but still takes the edge of the enjoyment when you realise you wasted most of your day's allowance at a single sitting. I guess that's the point! As an aside, Yankee Stadium itself is amazing. I couldn't find anywhere on Tripadvisor to review it, but catching a game should be high on the list of every visitor to NY.

Thanks for taking the time to review and thanks for stopping by when you were in NY. I wish we were "spectacular" on your visit, as we strive to deliver authentic experiences that rock to all guests. The calorie count is mandated and can be a bit of a joy kill. The one thing to remember about the calorie count is that it includes every morsel of every item on the plate. Our portions are large and most folks only eat 3/4 of the food, and the calories, on the plate. We can, and do, help guests work around the calories, when they ask. Sauces and dressings can be served on the side and higher calorie items can be swapped for lower calorie items, if the guest chooses. Many guests merely look at the calorie count, laugh, order, indulge, and say that they are on holiday, at the Yankee Game, or both, and will hit the gym harder when they get back home. I am very glad that you enjoyed Yankee Stadium and we look forward to serving you next time.

Thanks again,
Jason Petrina,
General Manager
