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.

We celebrated a birthday at BRCH and had an amazing dinner. Chef Eric’s new roasted squash appetizer was the perfect fall dish. Everything was so delicious.

Waiter took my meal away before I was done and the chocolate cake dessert was terrible.

Was planning on going upstairs to the cigar bar after dinner but with the disappointment we just went home.

Food was wonderful
Service was excellent
Where we sat between two doors, dining room on one side and heated patio on the other
Cool breeze which obviously cooled the food faster than I would have liked. Another heater and things would have been perfect.

Like many restaurants, they need more servers but the small plates menu is damn near perfect. Try the petite filet for that little meal that you thought you could not get anywhere.

Outside of the Maitre’d being a little snobbish about where we could sit - knowing that a 4:45pm reservation did not yield a full restaurant - we finally got a much better table from a supervisor and I enjoyed my meal completely.

It was my 24th Anniversary and Aaron made our 1st time experts memorable one. Only one small thing I wish the restaurant would have offer a anniversary dessert. Something to consider..

Food was luke warm. Vegetables were supposed to be sautéed in garlic butter but were bland. Tongs for vegetables handled by bare hands were laid on top of vegetables on plate... not sanitary and worse does not follow Covid 19 protocol. I realize prices have gone up due to shortages and Covid-19 closure but food value for price was disproportionate. Compared to prices from when I was there earlier in the year before COVID-19 prices were way higher for little food . The lamb was not hot or cooked properly but neither one of us wanted to send it back. Our best experience was in the cigar lounge where it was lively, and the drinks were well crafted and worth the price. The bar tender was attentive and we enjoyed that experience the most.

If you can get a server, get Aaron. He's great! Always has good suggestions on what to pick. He knows the menu very well. They're menu during covid is still as good as their full menu. Cant wait to go back.

Took my boyfriend there for his birthday dinner. We were floored by how great everything was. The waitress was over the top awesome. Sent us home with a full cake that was to die do. The truffle fries were delicious. His steak was cooked perfectly. You could not go wrong going to this place!

Sat outside on the patio, and watched the world go by, with great wine, and comfort food. Mitchell was our server, and was promptly at our table whenever we needed him for wine, extra drinks, etc. The short ribs were outstanding, as was the smoked salmon charcuterie board, and Caesar salad. Thanks again for a great night!

I used to love dining on the patio at this restaurant. In this instance, during the time of COVID-19, I was very uncomfortable. The place was full, I felt the tables were too close together and diners were not wearing masks while traveling through the restaurant. It also seems the prices have been increased dramatically. To top things off, neither my meal, nor my husband's was very good.

Service was excellent. Waiter was great. The food however was definitely under par. I’ve been here many times in the past and there is usually nothing bad to say. We were a Group of 3, so we each ordered something different and shared. Had the lamb chops ( overcooked and dried. Had ordered it medium ), sea bass ( overcooked) and the ny strip ( under seasoned and undercooked, also ordered medium) . None of us complained to the waiter ( not one to do so) but just leaving a review so they step their game back up. Def would go back, maybe it was just an off night on the chefs part 🤷🏻‍♂️
