To be honest, we came to the HRC for lunch after a Ducky Boat Tour which entitled us to a 15% discount. We entered the restaurant at 11:30 AM on a Monday. As expected, it was was relatively empty. The music was at a moderate...More

This Hard Rock Cafe is in a very nice location along the waterfront at Station Square across the river from downtown Pittsburgh. Foot access to Smithfield Street bridge is nearby. There are also remnants of the steel factories outside the restaurant. Great views of the...More

This review would have been 5 stars if it hadn't have been for our unfortunately clumsy waitress Nicole. We ordered our entrees after we ordered our drinks. Nicole took our menus, went back into the kitchen to ring it in, and returned 35 minutes later...More
