Good but not great

A nice spot to catch a good dinner or lunch. Nothing out of this world or special but everything was okay. They are usually busy and it does have a good atmosphere.

Hi Cdawg6016, Thanks for sharing your honest opinion with us. If you are ever in town for a sporting event of concert, make sure you take advantage of our Free Shuttle. My favorite from our menus is our burgers, we would love to have your back again to try our Legendary! Thanks, Mary More

I ate alone (which can be depressing). But the staff was very friendly and made me feel at ease. The server gave me suggestions of places to visit within walking distance. Food was okay but the service more than made up for it.

We ate here at midnight after there was a Kenny Chesney concert and a Tigers game. Downtown was packed and Hard Rock was no different. We have eaten at other Hard Rocks and were not dazzled by the experience, but Detroit was different! There was a wait so we got a few drinks at the bar and although they were... More

Sat on the patio with a group of about 20. Beer was very cold, but service was terribly slow, and there weren't many people there. Was only in town for business, wouldn't go out of my way to go there again.

Hi Bill S, It was nice to have you in Detroit, even if it was for business. I do apologize for the slow service on the patio, and that is not our standard. I do wish you give us a second shot if you are in Detroit again. We would love to have you back and show you the true... More

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

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!

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

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.
