We went over the summer when we had an exchange student with us - she loved rock music and we thought the fun atmosphere of the Hard Rock would be great. They wanted to seat us outside first, unable to accomidate a party of 6! We requested a table inside and offered to wait - which we did - and ended up at a long table where we were each sitting next to each other , up against a railing. It was very difficult to have a conversation and not nearly as enjoyable it could have been if they'd made any effort to seat us pretty much anywhere else. The food was average but overpriced. Still, you can't beat the atmosphere of the Hard Rock and the service was great, as were the drinks. It's a fun place to go but it's not a very kid-friendly place and they don't accomidate parties of 5 or more very well, which I find absolutely rediculous!
Another exchange student of mine also went there after the homecoming dance and they also were sat outside of the restuarant. People don't come to the Hard Rock to sit outside, and by outside, I mean in the Compuware lobby!.
