Formerly Norman's Eton Street Station, Big Rock Chophouse combines the rustic, casual feel of a mountain lodge with the high-energy of a contemporary club, an eclectic mix unlike any other Metro Detroit dining experience. Big Rock Chophouse is the proud recipient of the prestigious American Culinary Federation’s 2014 Achievement of Excellence Award, an honor that was previously awarded to only three other Michigan restaurants before that year. The restaurant's mouthwatering menu bursts with flavorful recipes centered around enormous, hand-cut aged steaks, delicious lamb chops, and the freshest seafood.

As a vegetarian, you may be surprised that I am giving a chop house such a high review, but this really was a lovely meal. We were celebrating an anniversary, which was nicely acknowledged. The food was delightful; as several others mentioned, the bread and butter was especially delicious. I had a nice salad (for a pre-dinner salad, it was very large!) and a ravioli dish that was quite nice and not at all heavy. The wine list was extensive and even included a few Michigan selections, something I particularly enjoy. For dessert, we enjoyed the "birthday cake," which was very light and tasty! Our server, Dave, was out of this world! He was personable, offered recommendations, and was attentive without being overbearing. I would go back again just to be served by him! Thank you, Dave, for a wonderful evening!

I had reservations for my husbands birthday dinner. We arrived almost an hour early because Hamilton let out earlier than we thought. They still sat us right away. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was great. They even brought out a birthday cake with a candle for my husband which was a very nice surprise and was delicious as well. We will definitely be coming back. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an amazing meal. :)

We went to big rock gor our 10th anniversary celebration, after our server struggled to convey the specials, i decided on the filet, (mr)baked potato, my wife and mother chose the petit filet, my filet was charred to a crisp on the outside, it was med /rare but cold, the baked potato looked and tasted as if it was left over from the day before, none of our entrees lived up to the price charged, seriously if your going to ask those prices, make sure your waitstaff know about what they are selling, and your chefs/cooks take ride in what they're putting on the plate, sorry we wont be back, disappointed, but our annivarsary didnt suffer, in love with each other, not with Big Rock

I had some of the best onion soup that I have ever had. The chop salad was great also. My friend had the frittata and said it was great.

Had an exceptional dinner, The service was outstanding, My only issue was that for a chop house their selection of bourbons left much to be desired, They did not have any of the top shelf brands. With a cigar lounge I thought that the selection of wiskey, scotch and bourbon would be top notch. To end on a positive note, the food and the service were excellent.I would definately recommend them for that important dinner.

My S.O. and I couldn't be together for Valentine's Day, so we celebrated on February 15th, and everything was perfect. We had the best table in the house: our waiter was attentive, the meal was superb, and we had a great evening! I love their boutique mixed drinks! Great spot for a romantic dinner, even though I had been there previously for a business meeting. Check it out!

We enjoyed a lovely early dinner recently. Our meals were perfectly prepared; it has been a while since I have enjoyed a steak cooked as I ordered, perfectly. The Big Rock's Chophouse sauce is flavorful and delicious - the best! We enjoyed fresh parmesan asparagus and sweet potato frites with a great dipping sauce. Sweet potato fries have become almost passé, but these were excellent, worth ordering. Our server, Beverly, was gracious and efficient. Love the warm atmosphere at The Big Rock and the way the tables are situated allow for privacy for conversation while still being able to enjoy the activity in the restaurant. The Big Rock manages to be both a lively place and elegant at the same time. Well done.

Beverly, our server, was great. However, I thought the food was mediocre. My salad didn’t appear to have very much dressing, my husband‘s duck was a little too rare.

We loved everything except for paying $12 for kids mac and cheese and butter noodles. They don't have kids menu so when you get your bill don't be surprised if your 2 kids meals would cost you $24.

Relaxing atmosphere, pleasant staff and tasty food. Prices are a couple dollars per item more than I’d expect fr the style of restaurant, but we like to stop in when we want to be sure of a friendly experience and solid food and drinks.

It was my guests birthday, which I mentioned in the reservation. It was not mentioned by anyone. No big deal, but it’s always a nice touch for it to be mentioned.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Big Rock Chop. The calamari is the best anywhere and my steak was done perfectly. Make sure and ask for their famous zip sauce. The coconut cream pie is huge and amazing. I highly recommend eating here. We will be back for Valentine's Day!

Disappointing
While the calamari appetizer was very good
the rest of the meal was ok at best.
Food definitely did not match their prices.
Can’t say I would recommend.
