Consistently Delicious!!

I've ate at a couple Hard Rock Cafe's and this one did not disappoint!! I tried the ribs for the first time and it was a hefty serving and fell right off the bone. It was delicious and had a good waitress.

We have eaten at Hard Rock before - so stopped here for lunch while we were out and about checking out the city. We ordered fruity drinks and appetizers - all of which were delicious. Our meals were good too - and the server was very friendly and attentive. Great stop!

We stopped in for dinner after ice skating at Campus Martius. The food and service were excellent! Even with a large party of 14, we were seated after a minimal wait in the lobby of the Compuware headquarters. Listening to the water cascading from the suspended sculptures was really cool.

First off the atmosphere in this place is awesome! The food was great and they even validate your parking. Best part? They have a shuttle bus out front that takes you where you want to go and then brings you back if need be!! Loved this!:)

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.
