We've been to other Hard Rock Café and decided why not give Pittsburgh's a try. Very good I must say. Service was excellent. We at mid day so the restaurant wasn't very crowded at all.

Thank you Sherri for sharing your experience. I apologize that we were unable to provide a memorable time on a special night like light-up night in the city. I understand that it is tough for families to go out on a regular basis, and when they have the opportunity it should be a great night for all, which is what... More

You generally know what you're getting with Hard Rock Cafe and this place was the same. Good food and a big menu, wide range of drinks. Made better by outside seating with views of Station Square and downtown Pittsburgh over the river.

I visited the Hard Rock Cafe with a group of 25 business colleagues. We had drinks at the bar and then moved to a private area for dinner. The food and atmosphere were fairly good as was the service. The only negative was that being in a private room some of the overall atmosphere was lost.

The food was okay. Nothing special, not bad but average. Service was painfully slow. The restaurant was busy but not overly full.

Food was ok, my daughter did not like hers. The music was a nightmare--WTH was it?? I have been in Hard Rocks in several cities and in London, this was the worst! The service wasn't great either--did not even offer to refill drinks!
