“Fast food with sports TVs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Food was good quality and served quickly, waitresses were friendly and there were plenty of TVs showing different sports on. Felt like it was trying to emulate Hooters without being sued for copying it!

“Typical sports bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Just popped in for a drink, and were lucky enough to get a special offer on beer, it may have been "happy hour"? We were sat at the front of the bar, with the windows open, so a great opportunity to people watch. Food looked plentiful and good, although we didn't eat. Seemed to be hundreds of large and small TV screens, all appeared to be playing a different sport.

“Hoops throws a BRICK”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

big night out and my wife selected Hoops to watch a couple sporting events we wanted to watch. Well, not knowing what we were walking into, we sat down and looked at all the tv's thinking we should be able to get one of the games we wanted on to watch (Michigan NCAA game, Tigers or the Reds games) well apparently they only get a few channels and couldn't locate any of these games. There had to be 40 tv's in this bar! The 7 over the bar had a football game one one tv, a baseball game on 2 tv's and 5 tv's had TENNIS !!!! our waitress didn't even know where Detroit was located!! The Menu looked bare and uninteresting. Save your money and head a block over to Real Sports bar & Grill you won't be disappointed like at Hoops.

“avoid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Bad service, bad food. Found fruit flies in a martini and got attitude when pointing it out. Our waitress was slow and clearly wanted to be elsewhere. Wont be back.
