our overall experience was impacted by our particular waitress, who had problems with anothet table's check and either didnt put iur order in, or, most likely, didnt pick our food up. most tables around us ordered after us and received their food before us.

We ate there before a Saturday Yankees game and it was VERY crowded leading up to the game and there seemed to be fewer servers than they needed on. We have to ask twice for lemons, three times for straws and we waited quite a while for our food to come out. The food itself was tasty but they could have used more servers to handle the pre-game rush better.

I was very happy to get a reservation. The food was surprisingly excellent (my son had wings and Loaded Mac & Cheese, I had a Cobb Salad). Much better than other Hard Rock Cafes. However, we were crammed in so tightly I could barely move. In fact someone at the next table asked a question and I answered, thinking my son had asked!

I went with friends and I am vegan. We were all disappointed that i had to eat a bowl of lettuce for dinner. None of us will return to Hard Rock until real vegan options are offered.

We had a party of 6. Great food, good drinks. Still made it to batting practice before the game. More Yankee stuff should be added though...it was the only dissappointment.

The place was basically empty, with approximately 5 people ending their visit. I finally see a hostess and state that I have a reservation and was told that they got notice that it was cancelled and they were getting ready to close. It was 6:45 pm on a Wednesday. This was my first and last time at this location.

This is your typical Hard Rock Café with the food you would expect at a "bar-oriented" restaurant. Drinks are a little pricy but that's to be expected. If you go on game day and want to eat before the game and not wait on line forever, you must book a reservation ahead of time.

Only one concern we had reservations for 1215 PM we were told to wait on line inside the stadium then at 1230 they told us the restaurant was full and nothing till 1;30PM had to request to see manager and were seated at 1:00pm. Old Timers day at the stadium that's why we were inside trying to get into the restaurant.

Small restaurant but they accommodated my table of 8. The service was amazing considering how busy it was. Everybody's order arrived hot and correct. Will return soon!

WE love to start off our Yankees experience with a trip to the Hard Rock. We are frequent visitors, and we can reserve a spot and have a delicious salad or burger and WINGS, as well as our favorite beer on tap. Then when we go into the stadium, we have eaten better food, and we can stay on our diet! Occasionally we just go for a beer and then eat in the stadium, but I love the salads! And they are so generous. The waitstaff is starting to know us, and they are all pretty great. Bartenders are busy but friendly and capable. We love it here!
Cool venue inside Yankee Stadium...
This is a cool location if you are after a hat, glass, or pins for your Hard Rock collection; but, it was my least favorite Hard Rock to date. Small restaurant with minimal rock and roll collectables. Service was slow and they messed up several orders. Place is small and as it is crowded on game nights, you hardly have room to push a chair out to stand up.

Waited 2 hrs for food the manager said he would take care of it. Once we recieved bill it was "padded" to compensate for the food write off 2 beers 2 mix drinks and wings for $90.00 really
Easy to get to and quick service
I would definitely make av reservation before a game, fills up quick before. Normal chain food, pretty strong drinks and huge televisions to watch anything.

Very busy & loud. Waiter was very nice & attentive. The hostess was pretty nice, let us know that we were allowed to sit for "70 minutes". I guess they want people in and out to make more money before games. The other worker, who was in charge of checking tickets and bags when you left Hard Rock and entered stadium was EXTREMELY rude and kept yelling at customers where to stand and line up. It was a bit much, definitely could have been nicer since we spent a lot of money at the restaurant, already had our tickets and bags checked prior to entering the restaurant and were following her "directions". Food is okay...overpriced bar food and overpriced drinks. $12.50 for a glass of white sangria... It was an okay experience, not sure if I would bother going there before a game again.

The only problem was that the lovely young lady had our reservation and sat us immediately but forgot to check us in so I didn't receive my points and received a email stating that the reservation was canceled. Bummer.
Looking forward to returning.
This was our first visit to the Hard Rock in Yankee Stadium and it was excellent. The service, the food, the atmosphere was great...and the prices were very reasonable. Would definitely go back!

The food was very good, nice and hot. The service could've been better. Appetizer arrived, but no appetizer plates. By the time plates came, we'd finished the potato skins - using napkins as the plates. Slow at refilling drinks. Drink ordered from the bar has mostly sugar syrup (Hurricane). We did have a good time though.
The Hard Rock in Yankee Stadium. Enough said.
Let's be clear. You don't go for the food. The atmosphere, especially before a Yankees/Red Sox game is worth it. The food is okay. The service, especially given how slammed the place was, was very good. We made an 11:30 reservation for a 1:05 game. That was the perfect time for the reservation. I suggest this time slot. We traveled from Oregon for the game, and I genuinely recommend this place for food and drinks pre-game.

They told us we had 70 minutes to eat and leave. The food was ordinary and they forgot my meal. The table service was disgusting. Not the usual Hard Rock standard at all.
Great place to eat before the game
Great service, great food, quick. Awesome place to eat prior to the game, close to the parking, easy access to the stadium, fast servers. Could not be more happy.
Hard rock really rocks..
Had an amazing time wow the service was great.....i really enjoyed my meal and there bajama ma drink was awesome..
This place was perfect to grab lunch and then head to the game! Staff was so friendly and helpful with what was good to eat!
Exactly what it's supposed to be...
Decent spot to grab a meal before a game. Food was good, service pretty quick. A little on the loud side, but then what Hard Rock isn't? Annoying that there's not an easier way into the stadium for ticket holders instead of having to go through security twice. Other than that, no complaints.
Had tickets to the Yankees game and wanted to sit and enjoy a meal close to the stadium. This was perfect and a surprise. The food was really good and the service was quick but not rushed. My kids enjoyed the children's menu and my husband and I thought the burgers were great! It was so crowded but by having the reservation we were seated as soon as I gave my name!
Very lively place and perfect for a pre-game meal before watching the Yankees beat Houston. It is a bit pricey however $$$.
Excellent food, great service.
It's located besides a Yankee shop in gate 6. It's not a big one but it has a 9-point ambiance. The food is excellent. Definitely recommend for everyone.

What you'd expect from hard rock - good burgers, excellent fries and nice beer/cocktail selection in an extremely loud setting. Great thing is you can access the stadium from the restaurant and bypass typical long line closer to game time.
Great option at The Stadium
The Hard Rock is a great dining option on game night. The food is consistently good as is the service. The place is surrounded by flat screens, so if the game should start during dinner, you'll see everything that's happening on the field. It's a much better option than trying to balance your food on your lap, and it really won't cost you that much more. The Hard Rock is my first choice on game day or night.
Great way to start a trip to the stadium!
The food is delicious, the drink specials are enticing, the atmosphere is incredible and it definitely gets you fired up for a day at the ballpark! Highly recommended!
