We use to go to hercs for their delicious roast beef and seafood, we stopped going cause the place was turning into a dump and the quality of food was below average. Since Herc's is now Midtown grill and bar, the place just reopened after a complete remodel. We cannot believe how beautiful the decor is!!! The new owner's kept the same traditional menu that Herc's was known for and added other newer items. We ordered the roast beef and pesto salmon, both were delicious.
Fantastic! – I loved Herc's. We came to Detroit to see the Red Wings play and we stopped here to eat some food before we left. We loved it so much that we came back after the game too! Everyone was sooo nice and helpful. The employees were extremely friendly ;) The food was sooo good, I recommend their fried mushrooms, we had them twice! Comfortable booths too! And yes they will be renovating it soon. It sounds to me like a cool bar scene look. Black and some purple details.
GREAT STEAKS & SEAFOOD!! – Despite reading some of the bad reviews, i was a bit nervous trying this place out. I took my wife for Valentine's Day and we were amazed by the good food and friendly customer service. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and we ordered an extra plate of salmon and fried shrimp....melt in your mouth!! They pay attention to their food, which is reflected in the taste!!
Needs Improvement – We were told to give this place a try by our close friends. As we walk in we see the owner yelling at a waitress, she ends up being our waitress, the entire time she is sad and you can see that she just finished crying, our entire meal we have to listen to her complain about the owner and how unfair he is. We are here to eat, not be therapists. Also the table next to ours complains to a different waitress about something they didn't like, so the owner comes over and offers them a discount or some free food. (how do you like that, the owner is soooo desperate to keep a customer he gives things away, practically begging them to take it, it is pretty sad to see)
Another problem I noticed, is the place is completely full of customers, but they seem understaffed, they only have like 3-4 waiters/waitresses for the entire restaurant. Half our groups food was cold and the others was warm, so I assume they are under staffed in the kitchen as well, and don't have enough people to make all our food at once. Maybe instead of giving things away for free to customers, the owner should fix the fundamental problems and get more staff members to accommodate everyone there. I give this place 1 star for our experience there, but it does have potential to be better. We will revisit in a few weeks and see if it is any better.
DO NOT GO – Went here for dinner with my family on Tuesday. It was terrible, the waitress was rude to us. All of the employees that were working were swearing at each other, when we went to get some salad from the salad bar, you could here the cooks and people in the kitchen swearing too, this is supposed to be a family place. I think that the owner should do a drug test before hiring people to handle food.
I would not suggest this place to anyone.
Wide variety of Amazing food! – I have to say, out of all the restaurants out there, Herc's can't be beat with their amazing food! Whenever I crave their vegetarian nachos, I have to go in. They are the best I have ever had. Their rolls are so good too, as well as their thick, homemade soups. For dinner, I really enjoy their lean steaks, fresh seafood and their stir fries, which are made perfectly. By the way, they have the best ranch dressing in Livonia, maybe even in Michigan! (I wish that I could make ranch like that.) When I think of Herc's, it brings up great memories of great food. I love this place and the amazing food you get there.
Best Food!! Love the new owner's!! – Love the new owner's!! Heard renovations are in the works, the place really needs it! I noticed some new furniture and the cooks are nicely uniformed! Best food with reasonable prices, casual atmosphere and friendly waitstaff!!
Yummy! – Heard this place is under new management and the new owner's are going to renovate the place. The food was served quickly, the portions sizes were large and cooked to perfection.. I got full, and still had a lot to take home with me. Loved the waitstaff, the pricing was reasonable, and the atmoshphere inviting and friendly. Will be returning for more good food!
WHAT A FIND!! – I took my family here for a family night out. I had never heard of the place, but wow where do I begin! We are still talking about our meals! We ate until we were stuffed! The service was fantastic, the prices reasonable and did I mention the food!? The only negative you will experience is trying to choose only one thing from the vast menu!
its terrible that i belive the employees wrote good reviews to offset the bad ones i had been going to hercs since the 70s and i was there the last 3 times were the worst resturaunt i wouldnt reccomend this place to anyone the food is horrible its gonna go under also i asked waitstaff is this roast beef fresh well with no customers how could it have been 4 hours after i ate i was on toilet
