Decent steak and very fair drink prices but better suited for a rowdy middlebrow night than as an indulgence for a special occasion. If you set your expectations accordingly, you won't be disappointed. If you are looking for an intimate upscale dining experience, look elsewhere.

I really enjoy our experience at the Big Rock. Excellent service from the time we walked in until the time we left. Our waiter Joshua was very professional and very attentive to our every need. Thank you for making my birthday celebration a memorable one. I would definitely recommend and will definitely return to the Big Rock!

Love Big Rock! I was disappointed that those delicious rolls have been replaced by an odd loaf of bread; and once again, my steak had to be sent back because it was raw. So strange! Never the less, I will be back for more. Love the ambience, the service, and the coconut cream pie was to die for!

The small plates menú petite filet was cooked perfectly but the red wine sauce was just okay. It came with mashed potatoes and 3 spears of asparagus which were good. The entree steaks are totally a la carte & come with nothing but a garnish of 3 onion rings or onion straws on the plate. The small plate pasta bolognese was okay. Reasonable portion for a small plate. The Caesar salad was great. The garlic chutney garnish was delicious. The prices were high. The bread was stale and not worth eating. When I told the server, she said it is supposed to be dry and stale texture on the cut sides.

The Desserts were fabulous! Butternut squash soup was a hit but a bit sweet to one of us. Fishermen's appetizer was terrific, big shrimp and the pickled onions on the plate really were nice. Gnocchi was a great seasonal take, but can't rave about the prime rib grilled cheese.

Overall the place is beautiful! Love the spot. Valet was great! Greeted and seated promptly. The drinks were very good. My ceaser salad was excellent! Just enough dressing. The waiter seemed a little distant. Didn’t explain things well, kind of matter of fact. The real problem came when we waited 45 minutes for our food. When it was finally served no we apologize for the wait. The worst part is my food was warm and by the time I started getting into my meal it was lukewarm to cold. My dates food was extremely hot to the touch. The saving grace for the night was the cigar bar!

Reserved the side room for 10 people to attend a special get together. Room was enclosed so we could hear some of the jazz music playing but more than quiet enough for discussions around the table. Also had a dedicated server who was wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and specialty drink options (try the Maverick). Everyone had a very enjoyable evening.

I chose BRCH for my birthday lunch. We had a group of 4 and sat outside which was extremely pleasant with a nice ambiance. Our server was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the petit filet and it was perfect. The others had sandwiches (short rib and French dip) and we were all very pleased with our choices. Excellent experience all around!

We eat at Big Rock a lot. We know and enjoy most of the menu items. This time we were particularly impressed by our waiter, Joshua. He was excellent. He knew the menu items including the specials and could make informed recommendations. Most importantly, he did not make himself out to be a pest as some of the older waiters have. He was available to answer our questions and take our request when we needed him to be. He did not over extend himself with unrequested conversation. We liked him a lot.

While the food was OK, the server left us to our own devices to keep out glasses full after decanting the Opus One. The main course was served long before table appetizers were consumed. Surprisingly unsophisticated service. There are too many good options locally to re-visit this restaurant.

Just a little sad that even though I sent a note the eatery did not mark my husbands 60th birthday .
Kinda made me sad since he is struggling with this and I promised to make it special
Wanted to sit outside but was persuaded not to sit outside or in atrium
Just not the evening I envisioned

Enjoyed a delightful lunch with friends. It was quiet and the service was friendly yet professional. We lingered over lunch for over two hours and never felt pressured to leave. Food was very good especially the salmon with vegetables on the lunch menu. Bartender made special drinks per my husband's request. They were perfect.
