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.

    Other than the steak that we cooked at our table and the potato, everything else was brought to us cold. Soup, fries, Mac and cheese, and a side of ribs. The ribs were cold like they came out of the fridge and warmed up a bit. They tasted good, just cold.

    We did the priority seating and waited a little over an hour for a table. We weren’t expecting to wait quite that long, but sounded like a few unexpected things came up to cause that so no biggy. Once we were seated our experience was great. Food came out quickly and was amazing! Server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food. We will definitely be back!

    The priority seating on open table for the time of the reservation was 7:30 we were not seated until 8:10. They were out of quite a few appetizers and some sides.

    The food was fine when we got it. But the restaurant was short handed so we waited 40 minutes for our meal. The manager did give us a discount but obviously they need to staff kitchen. But my salad, steak and potato were great.

    We had priority seating set up for 3:30. We understood it may not be ready. Obviously, your location is having staffing issues as there was plenty of room in the restaurant. We were seated about 20 minutes later in a booth next to the south window, we were freezing! Upon arrival at our booth, we had to ask someone to sweep underneath the table to remove chunks of steak and other food. Initially, our waitress was pretty prompt yet others around us were seated after and got their food much faster. There were only 2 adults and 2 kids. One of the kiddos did fall asleep bundled up in coats so she never ate but the waitress did send home a lava cake for my birthday so they could experience that at home. It was after 5 before we got our food. Hopefully, you can get some better heating in that section, or new windows, it did warm up when my cooktop arrived!! Maybe use the Mall area seating instead of the cold side! That area was not being used. Good luck with staffing, we would like to try your place again.

    The food was pretty bad. I asked the staff to cook my filet mignon to medium. I received some piece of meat that was over cooked. My wife had uncooked shrimp on her plate. Server was nice but manager did not care

    Not impressed unfortunately. Brussels sprout appetizer had good flavor but not cooked all the way through. Steaks, which were filet medallions, had gristle in a few pieces so not great quality. Side dishes both came out cold. Just overall not a great experience.

    Food was good for the price. The entire restaurant was filled with smoke from the rock, which was a bit of a nuisance because of the smell especially on our clothes and hair after. They could definitely benefit from adding exhaust fans.

    A different experience. Food is good quality, only issue is because everyone is essentially grilling their own steak it can get smokey. Your clothes will definitely have an oder when you leave.

    Went on a recommendation from family. A little disappointed in the experience our table was too small for our party which made it difficult with five people having hot plates in front of you and no where to keep a plate to put your cooked food on. If you go keep your group small.

    We were out for dinner to celebrate a birthday. This was our first experience with Black Rock and it wasn't the best. Three items that we ordered, Fried pickles, scallops and ahi tuna were not available, so alternate selections needed to be made. The steak was delicious, however we didn't expect to have grease splatters on our clothing from the cooking process. The sides were also good, At the end of our meal our waitress, Rose, offered a birthday dessert but said that they were out of brownies so couldn't make the brownie sundae that the menu referenced. That made 4 things that we wanted but could not have. Rose was pleasant and efficient and worked hard to make the best of a sub-par situation. An adjustment was made to our bill to compensate for the out of stock items. This helped but our hopes of a "special dinner" had already been compromised. The noise level was high and the overhead lighting at our table was harsh.

    Food was excellent, and our server was attentive! The one major disappointment was hot ungodly hot the restaurant was…and it’s not because of the hot stones for the steaks. The air conditioner (as advised by listening to some staff) has been down all summer. It made it a way less enjoyable experience. Being on a “priority” list also did not lessen the wait (still waited over 40 min).

    Restaurant was dirty. No ambiance. Smell of burning beef. Need better ventilation. The help was kettle to be desired but understandable with todays work force. Chicken stir fry was over sauced by about 3 times. Inedible. Artichoke spinach dip had no artichokes in it and the bread was fried and greasy. Just not a very good experience for the EXTREMELY high end prices.

    We absolutely loved our meal here. However, having to wait for two hours for our meal was ridiculous. We got our drinks after 15 minutes and our appetizer a half hour later, then salads at about 1 1/2 hours and then waited another half hour to get our meals. While we loved our food and the whole experience, our friends that had never been there before were not impressed with the service and I was embarrassed. The business was not busy and there were plenty of open tables. We then watched another table get seated and within 20 minutes had their meals.

    Okay experience. There have been mistakes on our last couple of visits and unfortunately the service seems to be starting to go downhill. This time a key ingredient—the feta cheese—was missing from my “premium” side and our server kept disappearing for long periods of time. She clearly had too many tables assigned. My husband obviously received the wrong cut of meat and we questioned whether there was an error, but were told no. The error was in our favor; so, we didn’t argue the point. Certain seating areas are under lights that shine like spotlights on whomever is seated under them. That was the case this time. We were also seated at a table with greasy hand prints and food crumbs on the booth seats, which our server took care of when we asked. Except for the missing ingredient, the food was great. It seemed like our server was trying to take good care of all of her tables, but had too many to keep up with. Not her fault.
