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

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

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

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

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

I heard this place is under new management with upcoming renovations. 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!

We have been coming to Hercs for a few years now because we love the food. It is high quality and tasty. What keeps us coming back is the food, of course, and the family-owned atmosphere. If we want a little change up in a dish, the owners are happy to accommodate us. They are there to please us---this is what restaurants used to be before chains came around. We make a stop here around once a week. We love so many of their specialties, such as the salmon florentine, and I just crave their rolls. Their French onion soup is super too! Every time we finish eating at Hercs, we are completely satisfied. A++++

Pros: Fresh Seafood, Great steaks, Chicken Stir Fry to Die For

Cons: A bit outdated decor, but, you don't eat the decor

Were were there in Oct 2009. Have been hearing about Hercs for a few years. Finally made the ride from the eastside. The roast beef was top notch. The service was medicore. We waited at the door for someone to greet us. The soup was luke warm.
It needs remodeled and cleaned up and also a good manager. The only reason I'd so back is for the roast beef. I'd raste the roast beef a 5 star and the service a three star and the building a 2 star.

I visited Hercs about 2 weekends ago or so.
1st off, i would like to say that Hercs should remodel everything. The "non smoking" section smells more like smoke than the smoking section itself. Everything is falling apart. Honestly, any McDonalds you eat at will be in better condition than this restaraunt..thats how unsanitary Hercs really is.
SECONDLY and WORST OF ALL...
The Staff. Half of the waitresses live in the MOTEL next door!! The cooks are all little grungy punks that wear their hats backwards and handle the food like i have never seen before. The front of the restaraunt is like and open kitchen, so you can see everything the cooks are doing. these teenagers were throwing water all over the place, using EXTREMELY vulgar language, and just plain fooling around.
I first walked in Hercs with my family and waited for about 5 to 10 minutes at the door. All of the sudden this little brunette headed girl that couldnt be older than 12 or 13 comes up like we were bothering/ interrupting her with something..(i mean it is your job, dont act rude.) at this point all i wanted was to be seated. well, finally we get to the table and she forgets the menus and tells us she'll be right back with them. she never came back.A little ridiculous since we were one of the only families there besides the same people who sit at the bar day after day.
i guess the worst part of everything was when my 7 year old son and i went to go get rolls and salad at the front where all of the staff was lazily hanging around. The same hostess that forgot our menus AND our table, and a grungy little dark haired cook were kissing and touching (fooling around) out in the open. Now would you want your child seeing that? i think not.VERY innapropriate for a "FAMILY" oriented restaraunt. It is just sad how my family couldnt even enjoy going out for a little dinner. The food is the ONLY reason my family goes to Hercs. I HIGHLY suggest if you are planning to visit Hercs, you ask for a TAKEOUT menu.

Pros: Some of the food

Cons: ALMOST everything.

The Food was good. All of the cooks are punks and walk around with sideways hats on and piercing in their ears, and are filthy. often walk up behind the bar take a drink touch their mouth and face, smoke and then go right back to prepping food without washing their hands. i have had a very bad experience with a man there named David. Seems two-faced and only talks to his regular customers. the waitstaff was fine except they smoke right in front of their customers, cool bartenders. but really couldn't stand sitting at the bar due to the crazy customers who live in the motel next door. To me the bar seems like a place where alcoholic UAW workers can go and feel sorry for themselfs. All in all, I am very upset with Herc's and will not be returning again. the place is filthy and needs to be inspected by a state health inspector and I'm pretty sure he would be offended byt this disgusting hole in the wall referred to as a Livonia classic

Cons: Looks terrible inside, terrible management

Great place to eat. We have been going to Herc's for over 20 years. I've never ordered something and not liked it. They really need to invest a bit of money into a remodeling job, but the food is fantastic as well as the staff.

As someone who just went to a Chinese chain restaurant recently, it was a welcomed change to go to Hercs. There were a lot of entrees to choose from, but I chose the Smothered Chicken and it was just simply delicious. My husband had the Salmon Florentine and he was also very pleased. Even though the salad bar is small, it is plenty and the rolls are superb. Our waitress couldn't have been friendlier. Our overall experience was stomach-pleasing and heartwarming! We are making this our #1 place to go to for a quiet evening, an excellent dinner, and an affordable price all in one!
Sincerely, Rachel

I can't comment on the food since we were never served. We waited at the front desk for 5 minutes before we were seated. We were the only ones at the front desk and many employees came by but ignored us. After we were seated we were ignored for 10 minutes. In that time other employees walked by but did not stop. The place wasn't busy at all. We left.

Our family has been dining here for many years, I always like to stick to ordering beef,
steak, prime rib etc. because these people know how to prepare it so well.
Service has always been friendly. It has just about anyting on the menu, and specials every day.
There is a french dip sandwich they serve there to die for !!

I could not believe how slow this restaurant is. We waited for 72 minutes (yes we timed it) and still didnt have our food, I think the waitress forgot to place the order or something. Anyways on to the dirty part. The womans bathroom had blood and a feminine napkin on the wall as if someone wiped it all over...

NASTY I will never go back there!
If there was 0 stars this place would get that. Id love to leave negative stars too!

PROS: They're supposed to have good food... I wouldn't know
CONS: DIRTY AND SLOW

I will preface this review by saying that I am not a very critical person--neither is my husband. We are generally very easy to please and dine at all sorts of restaurants. Herc's could actually be one of the worst experiences yet. Actually, we tried this place twice. We went this last time to give it a second chance. The restaurant is very dark--that is smart on their part because it hides how dingy the restaurant really is. Our waitress was not even close to hospitable. We waited forever for our food which was equally terrible. My husband ordered the seafood platter which was mostly beading hardly any seafood. I was not feeling adventurous given the surroundings so I opted for onion soup and the salad bar thinking you couldn't mess it up--WRONG! My soup was terrible and the salad bar--I'm not sure it even should be called that. It basically consisted of lettuce, a few veggies, some croutons and salad dressing. The rolls were the only saving grace. They even charged extra for blue cheese dressing!!! The worst part is it's not even what I would consider cheap to eat there. Average prices but way below average food and service. You can really tell they are trying to save a buck. I say "SAVE YOUR BUCK" and eat somewhere else.

PROS: The rolls were good?
CONS: Too many to list--in a nutshell: the food, the staff and the restaraunt.

Great Fish specials. I had a Grilled Santorini Swordfish Special. Very reasonable prices too. The salad bar was great with all you can eat fresh baked bread. We will come bak again.
