When PNC Park opened in April of 2001, an Outback Steakhouse restaurant was featured in an area behind the left field under the scoreboard. Prior to the 2008 season, the Pirates removed Outback and added a new restaurant called the Hall of Fame Club.
The Trib Total Media Hall of Fame Club features a full service bar, table seating, and a lounge area. There is also a patio on the city side of the restaurant, closest to the Centerfield Gate. During the game, the restaurant is open to all ticket holders. After games, there are often guest bartenders and/or live music. A major benefit of the Hall of Fame Club is that you can easily see the field from all parts of the restaurant.
In the restaurant, food items range from appetizers to burgers to specialty baskets. The drink menu includes Pepsi products, cocktails, wines, beer, etc. Gourmet desserts are also served.
There are multiple ways to get to the Hall of Fame Club:
- Stairs next to the CF Gate lead to the outdoor patio and into the restaurant
- Through the bleachers. The stairs on the Riverwalk side of the General Admission bleachers will also lead you to the patio.
- The elevator inside the gate near the Willie Stargell statue. This will take you to a hallway that leads to the restaurant.
- Bridge from the 2nd Floor of the Majestic Clubhouse store. There is a hallway inside the second level of the team store. This will lead you to the restaurant as well.
The Hall of Fame Club can also be used for wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, private parties, birthdays, meetings, banquets, etc. on non-game days.
@section134blog Might I add that this is perhaps the best place to be during a rain delay?—

As Zac suggests, the Hall of Fame Club is also a great spot during a rain delay. It’s one of the only indoor areas that is open to all fans, and you have the ability to sit down and grab a bite to eat. The HOF Club is definitely something to check out if you’re stuck in a rain delay during a game.
