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 came for her birthday, and it was her first time there. We loved the decor, the service was beyond professional, and the food was top notch. Even when I watched customers do things that at most places would cause a bartender or server to groan, the staff of Big Rock smiled, and continued the same level of excellent service. Kevin was our server for the night, and it felt like he became our friend too for the evening. Made us feel comfortable, and took the time to get everything just right. 10/10

The place is not what it used to be. Other than the beautiful outdoor patio, there's really not much going for it. Menu was not particularly appealing. Lots of sauces, game and strange lack of any good entree salad choices. Way overpriced. Parking is difficult, but rather than many restaurants offering complementary valet parking to make it more convenient and easier for guests, this restaurant takes the other side and uses it to force a ridiculous valet parking fee on everyone.

We had dinner at Big Rock to celebrate my birthday. The food was very good as usual. Our service was phenomenal with Mitchell as our server. He is very knowledgeable, fun, friendly and accommodating. He helped to make our experience special.

We frequent Big Rock because it is always consistent with great food and service. We enjoy the friendly attentive staff just as much as we do the delicious food. This is hands down one of our favorite, if not THE favorite restaurant of ours because of these reasons.

We've had great experiences in the past, when Gabby Milton was Exec Chef. Our most recent experience was disappointing. Very poor service from Beverly (not trained well), the Caesar was over-dressed and the rib-eye entree was fatty and grizzly. Not what we were expecting. :(

My husband and I booked online to make this dinner special for his birthday.
The sever was trying to push drinks and food on us from the moment we sat down. My husband asked for the draft list, and the waiter handed it back on the page with special drinks, which were like 18-20 dollars. The next page was the draft list. He later asked; “you want another beer right?”. Since it was my husband’s birthday, he said “I’ll see what I can do about the dessert”. I ordered the coconut cream pie. He remarked “good”, and later on did not take it off the bill. We asked why he didnt, he said he could have only the cheesecake, but made no indication of this at the time. So he did nothing about the difference, so we were charged the full price for the dessert.

Was overcharged for drinks - when I questioned the waitress about it she said that the normal drink is a single, so she made it a double (without asking) and then charged us double for it. My fiancé had a Manhattan and a old fashion. There was a Manhattan ($7) makers mark ($10) and double makers mark ($25) on the rocks on the bill. She had taken the manhattan off the bill, and charged us for a makers mark ($10) and a double makers mark ($25) on the rocks.

Calamari was fake sticks, margarita from a cheap mix, and the natural chicken tasted like Frankenmuth. Would be fair for a cheap restaurant, and unacceptable at this price point.

Taken straight from my Yelp review:
"THE BEST FRENCH ONION SOUP I HAVE EVER HAD!!! So good-layers of flavor. It was the most full-bodied broth I have tasted and the cheese was fantastic. That was what my wife ordered in addition to a burger. I had the Caesar salad, which had freshly chopped romaine, a delicious Caesar dressing, a crunchy piece of bread, and some cheese-typical for a Caesar salad. There were also some dipping items for the bread, but I have no idea what they were. The dipping items were delicious and I think one of them was caramelized onions. The salad was good, but it was huge. I should have asked for a side Caesar if that was an option. I had their burger too, which was nice and juicy, but it was over-done. I ordered it medium and it was cooked medium well, but it still had great flavor. It came with truffle fries too, which were fantastic. The burger was delicious, but for $20 I would have expected one of the best burgers I have ever had. It was an expensive dinner.

They brought some bread to the table too and it was served with a cheesy butter dipping sauce that had pesto on it, I believe. That was extremely addictive and delicious. So, all and all, the food was good, but the service is the main reason why I gave five stars instead of four. Our waiter and I have the same first name, so I knew things would go well. He was friendly, warm, informative, relate-able, and fun. He made us feel right at home."

Diasapointing : (. Our server was nice but had not tried a single wine or food item we asked about. There was an issue finding the bottle of wine we ordered so that took way too long and in general service was slow. That would have all been forgotten if our meal was amazing but it was just average. Our steaks were over cooked and so was my sea bass. The vegetables were fresh and cook perfectly.
