About Big Rock Chop House

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.

Great food and great service by Dave. The steaks are absolutely fantastic, salads are great and the martinis are poured at the table. We loved everything about our evening.

Our server Dorothy was wonderful. She made it a very special occasion for our friends. I appreciated being able to have a menu with no prices on it. When you were treating someone to dinner it's very nice that they don't have to look at the cost. Overall I could not have been better.

Food was great. The bar area was noisy and I was surprised that even though I made a reservation, that's where we were seated. I think reservations should apply for the dining room. This was a business dinner and the noise level made it a challenge to conduct business.

The service & food were great!

So good! It's pricy but worth it. We made our reservation through Open Table, but when we got there (on time) were told that our table wasn't ready. We had to sit in the bar for about fifteen minutes.

I would say for a first time visit it was well worth it. My wife had her birthday there, and we were blown away by the sight of the atmosphere in the area. Felt very cozy even for having our 2 year old son there. My wife had gotten an Italian dish, and was very surprised by the amount they gave us. I had ordered duck and was a little shocked on how small it was. Overall for a rare occasion visit it is worth it.

Great service and the meal was excellent. I have been coming here for years and wanted to take 3 out of town business associates to a place outside of the typical chain steak houses. They all loved the atmosphere and their meals were perfect.

Our group did not care for the type of music that was being played while dinning. We think that the music did not fit the atmosphere of the restaurant . It was too "hard rock" and loud.

Honestly when a establishment such as this one changes its menu or staff you can tell the difference immediately . When they constantly have changing staff members or high turnover rate it's not a good look . I was there for specific items and they were nowhere on the menu. Not happy with the new items .
