I have been to a lot of HRCs and this place has very unique decoration. They used bras as part of decoration. Otherwise it just a standard HRC.

My second HRC in Michigan. Completely different experience from the other one. I had the local burger which is a chicken breast, it tasted like it was frozen. That was the only bad thing.

Hockey night, free parking, free shuttle to the Joe, and good food. I took my wife and daughter before the game started, had delicious NY strip and potato skins. Never mind the overpriced menu if you go on a game day. Go Red Wings

When we were seated, a server came to our table very quickly and took our drink orders. We didn't see her for another 15 minutes until we asked the hostess for some help. The manager came over and was very helpful in taking our orders and finding our waitress and our drinks. The waitress seemed a bit scattered. While we... More

Ordered a seasonal holiday cocktail and a mojito as drinks. It took them forever to bring them. We were just finished our actual meals when the drinks arrived. On the good side, the manager was courteous and bought them for us. Mac, chicken and cheese was not good. Modelo seasonal burger was really good. Wouldn't come back.

Hard Rock Cafe Detroit is a great spot with nice atmosphere, good food, large drink selection, and a mixed crowd of downtown professionals to sports fans in town for a game. It's family-friendly with a menu that caters to all tastes, but depending on the time of day, you may have a long wait. Our party of 7 was there... More

We held our Raider Nation party here the night before the game vs Detroit and had a great time! They were excellent accommodating us, about 50-100 of us were on the patio (indoors) and had our own bar, servers and was great service. I don't remember price of beer but was reasonable, also had nachos and those were good.
