Huge Problem with IE Rendering my Site

I made a site that looks good in all browsers EXCEPT for Internet Explorer.  Big surprise, right?

Anyways, the url is here:  http://www.halfoffdrinks.com/staging

Check it out in Firefox, Chrome, whatever.  Then check it out in IE.  I've tried IE8 and IE9.  Both fail to render the site properly.  I've spent like 5-6 hours trying to fix it and I am at my whits end.  I can't take it anymore.  I'm really hoping someone out there can help me out.

Thank you!!

No, it looks awful in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari too.

You're looking at the /Miami page.  It isn't ready yet.  I'm too concerned with making the staging homepage work before moving onto the Miami section.

Please look at THIS page:  http://www.halfoffdrinks.com/staging/

I see two things right off.  You have a CSS link before the DOCTYPE which in IE will nullify the DOCTYPE.  It should be in the <head> section.

<link href="css/hod-style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html dir="ltr" lang="en-US">

<head>

And you have this in your CSS file.  It Only works in the main HTML file.  It's incomplete anyway.
[if IE]>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="hd-style-ie.css" />
<![endif]
