Steakhouse
Black Rock Bar & Grill, an award winning steakhouse specializing in certified angus beef steaks served on a sizzling stone.

Due to our high volume and traffic, we cannot hold tables for parties like a reservation system. We have a system called Priority Seating. This system secures a table within our restaurant, however, it does not guarantee an exact seat by time. Priority is placed on your party, and if we are on a wait, your party is placed on top of the wait list as a priority. We will seat you as fast as possible, but cannot guarantee an exact time. If the restaurant is not busy, we will seat the party upon arrival.

My husband and I had $75 retirement gift card to use. We had never been. It was moderately busy on a Wednesday evening at 7pm. We had outstanding service from Peyton who was polite, considerate and patient as she explained the cooking process to us newbies. Turned out the food was brought out quickly since we did the cooking at the table. It was very easy to figure out cooking process. Prices are on the higher end but the food is delicious especially the side salad which was large and full of fresh Vegetables. Nice drink menu. The only "less than perfect" part of our experience was the ambiance which was very dark, black with bright can lights over the table and smoky air from the on table cooking.

Sarah was great! We were ordering a filet mignon and she suggested a Kobe and we’re glad we did. It was delicious!!!! She said it was tender and that was definitely a understatement. It was work every penny!!!!

This was our first time at this restaurant. We wanted to try it for the "black stone" cooking experience. Our waitress was really good. No wait time, which was nice. But.. it seemed a little dirty and the food was just "so-so". We had the pretzel appetizer which was good. Husband and son both had burgers. I had the filet medallions and shrimp. There wasn't really enough room for the food on my plate, and the uncooked filets had to sit on the same plate as the rest, while I cooked parts of the meal. Which meant that the juice from the uncooked beef was pooling on the plate. Not very appetizing. The flavor of the shrimp and the filet was just fair. I wouldn't pay for this again. As a novelty, the black stone is a fun idea, but it doesn't translate well to the actual event.

Nest experience. Filet was great. A little Smokey, should have something to cut down on smoke from the food cooking.

The waitress acted like she was forced to take our table. They didn’t have fish n’ chips. The appetizers were very good (calamari, onion rings). The waitress brought the wrong drink refill and didn’t bring a clean plate as requested (1:5 was dirty). She didn’t explain how to use the rock until asked, even though we said it was our first time there. Then she didn’t seem to really know how to explain it or what the sauces were. The smoke just blows in your face from the rock. My husband’s ribs and fries were cold (it was Father’s Day 🙁). The waitress didn’t come back for 20 mins after we got out food. By that time most of our party was done or nearly done eating, so my husband didn’t get a meal. His meal was taken off. I wasn’t able to use the bogo entree coupon despite still having 2 other entrees, but could use the free app coupon. Probably won’t go back. Not worth it.

Enjoyable. The steak was very good and the preparation was interesting to say the least. The only thing that was disappointing was that the filet, though very tender lacked the flavor of the sirloin.

Service from our waitress was nearly non-existent despite being able to see her talking with other servers at the order entry station. Ribeye steaks were excessively fatty, had to ask the food runner for condiments and drink refills, and then felt as though we were rushed out the door. Won’t be back.

This was a fun time. I didn’t have to wait after booking priority seating. It was fun to cook my own meal. This isn’t something that has to occur regularly. The bartender was new and apparently didn’t know how to make a dirty martini. She tried twice and it still arrived with a sweet taste.

We have been the Black Rock twice now. Both on a Saturday. The first time we still had to wait a little but that's to be expected. Service and food was amazing. This last time we went we got seated immediately. Again food and Service was amazing. You get so much food for the price. Black Rock will definitely be our go to spot for date nights.

The only issues we had was the fish tacos were dry and had little or no seasoning on them. Just fish and slaw in the tacos. Believe they need to be topped with a sauce/dressing of some sort. The Black Rock experience with a steak is a fun thing to try but just a little time consuming. Recommend the experience but stay away from the tacos. Also, for first time goers it’s very smoky in some areas so be aware if you have sensitive eyes. Oh, and wait time was nothing. We walked in and were sat right away.

The 5 of us enjoyed the food, but the table we were in was too small for the volume and size of the plates they use. We literally had to consolidate our own food on plates to be able to get what we ordered.

the only complaint I have is not about Black Rock itself it's about the staff apparently there were co-workers who came to dine and were seated before people that did the priority seating. just when we started to question it they seated us but it was obvious what had happened and that was not appreciated. It was our first time the food was excellent and our server was the best

COVID-central; place was packed with no social distancing and a 6:45 priority seating which we were 20th at check in at 6:35p and not seated until well after 8p. Service by Adrian (actual server) and the food were the best things about the night. Otherwise, staff appeared overwhelmed and were rude.

The food is always outstanding but this time the front desk staff were rude and nasty. When I told her I had reservations she quickly corrected me in your “ priority seating”. When we came back an hour later to check she was short and very rude. We stepped aside to wait and waited an addition 15 min. Then she proceeded to tell us we couldn’t stand were we were standing and issuers us out into the mall. No more than 60 sec went by when we were paved by her! We have always had a great experience at Black Rock but might think twice about going back for a long while.

This was our first time dining at Black Rock. The steaks were good and definitely a fun experience. We weren't crazy about the desert, we got the volcano. The brownie could have been warmer, based off the description we thought there would be more than one marshmallow. The campfire sweet potato was a let down as well. I thought it would be more than just a potato with two toasted marshmallows. I thought it would have had butter, cinnamon and brown sugar with the marshmallows, definitely not worth the extra $1.99.
