    We went for Santa breakfast and it was a lot of fun! Santa was great and my children loved that they were on his list. The movies playing on the TV were a huge plus. The food was good but there was not a lot of options. I wish there had been some other food as well but it was overall good. I probably won't go again because I don't feel like I got good enough food for the cost.

    This was for Breakfast with Santa. Hard Rock could do maybe a craft or something for the kids. Our reservation was for 9 and kids didn’t see Santa until 10:30. After eating they were bored

    Really fun place in the "heart" of the city. Nice views of downtown Pittsburgh. Fun and energetic vibes with music and karaoke, but also has seating separate from the noise if you prefer a more quiet experience. Food was decent, and the service was excellent. They accommodated my reservation, and were flexible in spite of my party being late. Would recommend a visit.

    Not a great venue to enjoy live music. Also, we made a reservation for dinner and asked to keep our table for the show and the seating was poor for a live show - we asked to be moved and we were told all the “good” tables were reserved - and many remained empty during the entire show. So as soon as we saw an opening at the bar we moved there. Very poorly managed…

    Reserved a table, and was glad I did. Its "concert style seating"so you'll sit with strangers. The only thing we disliked was people from the floor were allowed up to where the tables were, blocking our view of the performers on stage.

    From the moment we walked in the door throughout dinner and the concert. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. My table reservation was perfect. I couldn't resist the wonderful smell of the Onion rings from one table over. We ordered the Onion ring tower. Yum. We both had the Salmon for an entree that was delicious. My husband and I were there to celebrate our anniversary and to see one of our favorite bands. Thank you Hard Rock, for a great night!

    Went for a country concert to benefit breast cancer and had a good time. Only down fall was they had the guitarist too loud and it would drown out the singer.

    We were there to see Johnny Angel & The Halos. We had a party of 5 & had dinner reservations before the show & had asked to keep our table through the show. We were told that would be fine, only to arrive & be told there was $100.00 due to keep it through the show. We had been there a couple years back & did the same thing, with no additional fee. Won't be going back to see the bands or for dinner. The place is a total rip off!!!

    This was my 1st visit to Pgh Hard Rock Cafe for dining. I had a ceasar salad that was fresh and tasty. The parmesan cheese rounds within the salad were amazing. Service was quick and our waitress visited our table at the right intervals. Prices were higher than comparable dining experiences, but was excellent food.

    Speaking of hanging out in Station Square, that’s exactly where you’ll find our Pittsburgh cafe. We’re located right between the Grand Concourse Restaurant and the Sheraton Station Square Hotel, and near the historic Duquesne Incline and Gateway Clipper hosting daily sightseeing tours on the Three Rivers. Our one-story building features an industrial ceiling, exposed-brick stage, indoor seating for 200 people, and an outdoor patio for 70 people. Music memorabilia is scattered all around the cafe from rock legends. Be sure to stop by The Rock Shop® to pick up a souvenir to remember us by!
  • Private party facilities
    With space for 20 to more than 450 guests and our living museum of music memorabilia lining the walls, Hard Rock Cafe Pittsburgh is the perfect venue for your next event.
