We showed up for our reservation and everything was put away and nobody was there. A manager came to the door when we were knocking and said "We are closed." We tried to explain that we had made a reservation, but he did not seem to care. We had walked a good distance from our car to the restaurant in the snow, so we did not appreciate the fact that we were not able to eat there, despite having a reservation confirmed for that time. They need to have someone check to make sure people are unable to make reservations during times they close early.

We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated immediately, ordered right away, but it took 55 minutes to get our food. Food came, some was overcooked and the other was cold. It was a busy night and the server was good and apologetic. Manager did comp half the bill. So they tried to make up for the mistake. Will give it another try. Bit pricey, drinks were more than our entrees

Made reservation because was at LCA for an event. Security check point person was gruff and rude. Time from seated to placing order was acceptable. At that time, we were told it would be 40 minutes until food arrived which would be tight before the show but manageable. However, 55 minutes later, no food. Then 3 of 7 meals came out. Then 3 more. My meal did not get served until 10 minutes later. In the meantime a random appetizer was offered. We requested checks so we could pay and not miss show. Orders on the checks were mixed up. Waitress said that restaurant was unprepared as LCA does not inform them of events. What! If you are running a restaurant then it is your responsibility to ask LCA about event schedule so you can adequately staff your restaurant. Will not eat there again.

The only problem we had was that I needed to drop off a family member who uses a cane and can't walk long distances. There was not "in front" of restaurant drop off as snow was blocking the only entrance. She had to walk in snow to the corner which had her hurting and out of breath. That corner was packed with Uber and Lyft drivers who were rude as I was not moving any further and had to wait for her to make it to the car.
I know this is a facility concern and not your establishment but it did make a great experience turn sour on the drive home.

The food was just bad. 2 people got the kid rock burger and it tasted bland, burnt, and like it was just a frozen patty. Very disappointing. I got the steak sandwich, nothing special, over cooked. The only thing I can say I enjoyed were the fries. Everything was incredibly overpriced, although understandable because of it being located in the Little Caesar’s Arena. And the name of Kid Rock in its name. But $5 for a small cup of pop is stupid. Tried this place and will not be returning!

Loved the Bloody Mary bar which has many choices to add to your beverage. Sandwiches were large & salads were large with plenty of the ingredients as listed on the menu. Server was a little "nervous" with our party of 10. Not as much memorabilia as I would have thought from Kid Rock. Solid experience.

Great open space restaurant/bar at LCA. We were there on a non-event night so it wasn't crowded or overly noisy. My ribeye steak was well prepared. My partner had the country fried chicken which he said was moist and tender.

Food was good as usual. Portions are generous. Great deals during Happy Hour. We were disappointed that wine is no longer available by the bottle. They basically offer a red blend and white blend by the glass. Too bad.

Fried green tomatoes were fabulous! Our other two guests also loved their entrees. Bummer they were out of corn bread at 5:30 on a Tuesday, the night of the Taylor Swift concert. They forgot to take it off my bill, twice. But, server was super friendly and overall experience was great. It was my second visit and I will return! Hostess was also super nice as was manager who came over to apologize for being out of corn bread.

Went with a party of 8 but we were waiting FOREVER until the manager came over and told us there was a 'computer glitch' and our order never went in. she offered to pay for dinner and would rush it, but we were already running to get to the concert. We waited, food came relatively quickly at this point, yet we still got a bill for $80 for the drinks. The right thing would have been to pick up the whole bill, but whatever.

When we arrived, they said they had no record of the reservation. Thankfully, we were still seated quickly. The service was atrocious, it took forever to get drinks, and we had to literally flag down our server to get refills. The food took about 40 minutes to arrive, and some was wrong and sides were missing or cold. They comped the meal that was wrong, but the server tried to make excuses that “they aren’t used to being busy.” The food is delicious, but the service and disorganization makes me not want to return.

Waited 15 for our waitress another 10 for our drink order
Out of the fried chicken
Burnt ends chewy and not burnt
Chicken wings were underdone /rubbery because they weren’t fully done
Not worth the $

The food was good and our waitress was great. If you are there on a concert night I suggest reservations. Unfortunately we had reservations but the young lady taking care of seating “forgot us” and we ended up getting seated after everyone else was seated. I noticed this after the seating area was empty. Not good. Also allow enough time for dinner. Our food took over a 1/2 hour before it was served. Give yourself ample time.

It's right at Little Ceaser Areana, so great for events there. We made reservations several weeks in advance but were seated in the concourse area outside the restaurant. And that was 2 hours before the ELO
Concert! Food was good but it took nearly an hour to get it. Drinks were good, prices fair.

I made a reservation for 10 people. 2 hours prior to the event, I let the manager know that I would have at least 20 people. The manager accommodated my late request by moving our group to the lounge area, which was very comfortable and a perfect venue for our group to socialize in. The manager was very helpful, staff was very attentive, and the food was terrific. Several different staff recommended appetizers when I asked, and their recommendations were excellent. Love this place! I will be back for sure, probably with a larger group.
