“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

As there were not much possibilities to have dinner in a nice and secure place on a Sunday evening in downtown Detroit, we chose the Hard Rock Cafe and the dining experience was great. Excellent service, the food was tasty in a nice atmosphere.
Not to be missed !

“Great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Spur of the moment impulse to go to HRC while exploring downtown.

The staff was great, from the hostess to the server and the cashier in the gift shop. Very attentive and courteous. Gave good advice on what to see and do in the Detroit area on a Sunday.

HRC is within walking distance to Riverside Park and a nice view of LaSalle Canada and HRC validates parking.

“Just came to see the cool stuff on the walls, not to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Four of us stopped in for them to have a few beers. I walked all around taking pictures of famous rock star's guitars, clothes and stuff. Very cool even as a museum/attraction! Maybe next time we might try the food.

“Good Meal, Well Done HRC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We had just done some real estate business in Midtown Detroit and decided to eat lunch nearby. This is a little more challenging in the city on a Sunday compared to other days. We made the drive down Woodward to the Downtown area and came across Hard Rock on Monroe. We generally like HRCs so we decided to stop. The exterior catches one's attention but the inside is a little smaller than most. The memorabilia on display was like most Hard Rocks and the background music was up to the quality expected. It was moderately busy but the service was still very good. The menu was typical of most HRCs. The prices were relatively reasonable and the options sufficiently varied. I got the Honey Citrus Grilled Chicken Salad. The rest of the family had a South Carolina sandwich and a Haystack Chicken salad. We were all very happy with our choices. Of course, the atmosphere and the gift shop may be the biggest reasons one goes to the Hard Rock but good food is also a must. Overall, this is a pretty good choice if you are in downtown Detroit.

“Average Hard Rock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

On the small side and kind of difficult to get to. Service was great, food was good. Very typical Hard Rock experience. Not a lot do do around the restaruant..at least when we were there. The manager came and talked to us for a while which was nice. Our waitress couldn't POSSIBLY tell us any more about herself and her life, I feel like I should send her a Christmas card or something now.
