Walked downtown area from Hart Plaza and stopped here after visiting the Guardian building. I recommend both, food was excellent and service was great! Comerica and Ford field are a few blocks away but are walkable with decent shoes and a jacket. We were visiting only days before the thanksgiving parade, so there was a skating rink, Christmas tree and... More

Went here with the kids before a concert. Every food item ordered was awful and the wait staff is abysmal. The only thing I would ever go there for would be to get a beer. But even then there are much better places to go in the D.

We have been to quite a few cafes around the world, but love Detroit! The items are great and a lot of them from local artists. Not as many as other cafes, but still awesome. Food is good at this location too.

Always love the memorabilia at Hard Rock. This was no exception, especially with the Detroit connection. Had the turkey burger and fries. A really good combination. Not too loud, even though they were playing music.

I have quite a collection of Hard Rock Pins so I had to pick one up on my trip to Michigan. My sister had called ahead to make arrangements. They knew our names when we arrived. Jasmine at the hostess deck was a ball of positive energy. Darling young lady. Jerralyn joined us at our table & gave my a... More

Slow to be waited on. Food was average at best but large serving. Music playing was more hip hop than rock. Memorabilia is nice. Restaurant appears to be newer. Good location. The blah food and slow service will keep me from going back.

If you've been to one of these chain restaurants, then you've been to them all. They all have the same food and same drinks. I have been to several of these restaurants in several different states – I like this one because the service is great--quick and very friendly. The music – obviously – and atmosphere is very comfortable and... More

I was at the Hard Rock Cafe recently in downtown Detroit and all I can say is that I was impressed by the staff there. They were courtesy, and quite friendly. The food was good, not great but good cause I ordered a legendary burger and the burger wasn't what I would call "well done". The burger was actually quite... More
