Overrated – The only reason I can think anyone goes here is the name. Expensive, bland, corwded, and the beer selection is horrible.
Yucky Town Cafe – If you like processed chicken, cooked salads, and uncooked Buffalo Wings, this is the place for you. Otherwise, don't waste your time or your money!!!
Hat Trick!!!! – I recently visited Hockeytown Cafe while in Michigan for Christmas and have to say its the BEST place for hockey fans, especially Wing Fans, by far!
The main bar with the "ice rink" was an added touch! I will definitely be back...... all the way from South Carolina.
Not Your Average Sports Bar – Not your run-of-the-mill sports bar in any way. The food is in no way the usual bar food, and the drinks are reasonably priced. The atmosphere is second to none, esp. during the playoff run when the deck is open and the weather is warm. The HockeyTown Cafe is located steps away from the Fox, Ford Field, New Tiger Stadium, and shares the same building as Second City. The casinos are minutes away, as is the bridge to Windsor.
Good for a Theme Restaurant – We went to Hockeytown Cafe before a Red Wings game. The place was busy and we waited an hour for a table. The whole restaurant was extremely crowded. Once we were seated, service was good and friendly. The food was not exciting, but it wasn't bad either. I had a portobello mushroom "burger" which was pleasantly grilled but very basic. This is a good place to go before a game (or during one) if you're a hockey fan, but otherwise there are better choices than this theme restaurant.
A star in Detroit – I love hockey, so I will say that I love to watch the Wings here when I come to Detroit. The food is good, sometimes the service can be slow before games. But all in all, if you get to Detroit then give it a try, espically during a Red Wings hockey game.
low rate – Too bad this could be a nice place to visit and eat but, the service is horrible. I guess its because they are busy so they don't need your business. I give it until novelty wears off. Who runs this place? Is this their first restaurant?
Is it worth it? – This is a great place if you can catch it on an off day but if there is a big sporting event going on, then forget it. The place gets overcrowded and parking in the area is expensive. Second City is usually a great show and there is a small dance club on the top floor that is fun.
GO WINGS!!!!!! – I love Hockeytown Cafe!!! Being an avid fan of the DETROIT RED WINGS, I had to expierence Hockeytown Cafe, and it was fantastic. The food was great, the service was fast, and fun, and the whole decor thing is AWESOME!!!!!!! I would recommend Hockeytown Cafe to anyone, especially out of towners, to show them what a real hockey city is all about!!!!!!!!!
Not Good. – Bad food. Bad atmosphere. Expensive drinks. Long lines. Get your hockey fix elsewhere.
