Haven't been to Hard Rock in several years. Nice surprise! Very nice atmosphere, great, friendly staff. Pulled pork sandwich and burger were very good. Best onion rings I've had in a long time. Valadated parking and shuttle to events a plus.

Absolutely the most bizarre experience I’ve ever had. We were at an afternoon Wings game and planned to go to Cheli’s Chili for dinner afterwards, but we won free appetizers for the Hard Rock Cafe so we decided to switch it up. We met up with our friends that we went to the game with, but we had entirely different... More

We just went down to a hockey game and stopped here to eat first. You have to do this since they provide free parking and a free shuttle to the game. Also, It doesn't cost much more for a really good burger here rather than stadium food that is almost as much. I have done this many times for baseball,... More

We've eaten at Hard Rock restaurants before and we know the cost is higher. At least in New York, the higher cost still got us a meal that was super delicious so it was worth the higher bill. Our visit to Detroit was not the greatest. We arrived early (about 5:00 p.m.) and even with a hockey game that evening... More

The food came out very slowly but everyone enjoyed their food so we didn't mind waiting longer, but from finishing our main meal to getting our dessert took so long, and then from asking for the bill to leaving the restaurant took 45 minutes. We were told that our waiter was new, which would have been okay if he'd had... More

We've been to several Hard Rock Cafe's throughout the US and this one hands down has the best burgers. Luckily this is our hometown HRC so we try to go a few times a year on special occasions.

When compared to other Hard Rock's we have been to it is certainly smaller. But the staff was polite, the food was ok, and it was just a couple of blocks walk from the hotel. Had an enjoyable time.

This was my 20th Hard Rock Cafe to visit and it was just as expected. There was a lot of cool stuff to see on the walls and the staff were more than helpful. The food was served pretty fast - I had the cheeseburger and chips, my aunt had the pork sandwich and they were both to die for.... More
