VERY NICE STAFF

Went here before the Stones concert. Our waitress was friendly and they offered a free shuttle to the concert which they started early for us. This is a great place to hit before going to rock out. It is small though so I recommend making reservations ahead!

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday and it was not too crowded. Typical Hard Rock food and this one was number 68 for my wife and I. Jessica was a great server and we had a shrimp Caesar and a salmon Caesar with some Bruschetta. There is a Kiss window that is impressive, Detroit music is displayed with... More

Hi Missparker85, Happy you made it out to the Rolling Stones concert! How was it?! It's nice to read when people take advantage of the Free Shuttle to sporting events and concerts. When you make it Downtown again we would love to have you. Take Care, Dan Glazer More

Came in on a Sunday night on my own. Place was packed and already showing chaos. After my order was taken, it took them over 35 minutes to bring it (a cheeseburger....), and when they brought the cheeseburger it looked like Iron Maiden had rocked this patty for a few hours, I never saw a more horrible burger in my...

The waiters were great with our group of middle school kids. We had a large group. They were fast and efficient. The price was great for our group with selections a little limited due to our size, but still tasty.

What I love about Hard Rock Cafes is that you generally know what to expect from an atmosphere, noise level, service and food perspective. And, the Hard Rock Cafe in Detroit does not disappoint. We recently had lunch there and we're grateful that the music was kept at a level we could still enjoy a chat- that's not always the... More

We just walked in here to get a key chain and we were immediately welcomed? with "we are closed for a private party". Mind you there were no signs on the doors indicating this and we were there during regular business hours.

We ate here on a late Sunday evening (9 p.m.) by default since most restaurants were closed. The service was attentive and the food was better than regular pub food. I had the salmon with mashed potatoes and vegetables which was delicious! The rest of our group were satisfied with their order -sandwiches and the Mac and Cheese.

Our waitress was very patient. The food is nothing super amazing but it was all good enough. They were out of Oreo cheesecake so we tried the brownie dessert and the Apple crumble dessert. The brownie one could easily serve 3 people. The apple one could easily serve 2. The desserts were very good, though.
