Someone complained about to much Detroit memorabilia... Isn't that the point ? Didn't like the size, needs to be bigger ... Maybe with new Red Wings stadium they'll move

I have reviewed probably more hard rocks on here than anyone else some will skip the food review because its a chain. That being said the food was just as good as usual. My only disappointment with the location was their memo was way too heavy on the Detroit stuff. I realize that every city wants to showcase their hometown... More

Took my father and family for his 84th birthday. Service started out great. Our food came hot and my father said his shrimp was fantastic. About half way through our meal. Traffic picked up. We felt ignored. Truned out Jimmy Buffet was having a concert at Comerica Park a few blocks away. Would have liked better service but the food... More

We stopped here before a concert with our teenage daughters. The food was pretty good and the prices are what you would expect from Hard Rock. The drinks and the staff were great! They were pretty busy but it didn't affect our wait much. They had a great DJ playing and the mood and atmosphere was a lot of fun!

Ok, Detroit is facing tough times, but this means that there are no queues for tables, and no quick rush turnover, like in many other HRCs. There's a lot of decent stuff displayed here as you'd hope in the city of Motown (items from Michael, the Supremes, Smokey etc) plus Madonna. A good burger at a reasonable price. HRC Glasgow... More

We arrived with a party of 12, offering to split into 6 and 6. After waiting for an hour with no one in front of us, and after complaining several times, we were seated in the back room at a table for 8 and 4 and not next to one another. The service was slow and the waitress was indifferent.... More
