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.

Food was great! Service was amazing! Only downfall has been even though we have priority seating we still have always had to wait at least 45 minutes before being seated.

Not a huge fan of the burger I had, but the steak is always great.
Always great offers sent through their Facebook vip club.
Wait was typical weekend wait so not sure if it was really worth using the priority seating on open table.

Great fun and food. Did have a very long wait, even with priority seating. But that is to be expected with the service industry these days.

The food is always fantastic! We did wait over an hour for our food, but listen, every establishment is experiencing issues with staffing, so if you choose to go out to eat these days, be patient and be KIND! Everyone is trying their best. We had a party of six and had a fabulous time. Our waitress was phenomenal and the overall experience was excellent.

Amazing service. Our waiter was helpful as it was our first time there. Great suggestions based on other customers reviews. Very attentive and provided a relaxing and enjoyable experience. All food items were delicious and the portions were generous. We both had the Ciroc punch and it was amazing!

NYE celebration we went early. The food was very good. We left with leftovers and my to-go Cheesecake! Out waitress was very good as well. I signed up on Facebook and got honored a BOGO offer for $15.99 off and our friends got a free appetizer.
The drinks were good also. We had a Magic Potion, which was sweet with a sugar rim and some specialty holiday drinks. All of them were very good. We had priority seating and waited about 15 minutes.
I would recommend. Cooking on the stone was different but entertaining.

The food was delicious, some of our sides were a little cold and the actual service of the food was a little disorganized but other than that it was a fun new place for dinner!

Food is good but the smoke from the rock entrees is overpowering and it lingers in your clothes and coat. I will not wear a coat inside again.

Had to wait which was fine, understood that they were out of many items. However I did not get my soup, and my wife didn't get her steak but just shrimp. Cool concept, but we will most likely never come back.

Came here for my daughters 14 birthday. Good meal, only negative was them forgetting her bday dessert, me reminding them, and then running out of the volcano.

We had a great dinner. We did Priority Seating and when we arrived we only waited about 5 minutes. Our waitress was prompt and efficient. Only draw back was that you have to scan your phone to see the menu and when we asked for a hard copy, they “managed to find one.” It was ok for us but I prefer to have an actual menu and one of the ladies in our party didn’t have a phone. Older folks don’t understand how to use the app or prefer to have a paper copy to look at. I understand the reason for the app but both should be offered. Other than that, it was a good experience and our friends who had not been to Black Rock before really enjoyed it.

Food is so so, server was mediocre at best, restaurant can’t decide if it wants to be a sports bar or a nice upscale restaurant. For what you pay at this place ($180 for 3 people) it should be first class and it simply isn’t. Very disappointing… we won’t be back and won’t recommend it to anyone either.

We always enjoy Black Rock - the steaks and rock cannot be beat! But I will say, of the various locations we've been to, the Toledo, OH location has been the most consistent in terms of service and enjoyability! Appreciate their staff, accommodations, ease of scheduling priority seating, and atmosphere. Great experience every time!

Took my mom when she came up from Kentucky bc we have always bragged about the food.. they had changed the menu so it went from $75 to $130 for less then we used to get steak wise. Server was a week in and she tried but we had to ask her to take our order and for any refills. Times are different but aloy of $$$ for the value.

For first timers, we were pleasantly surprised. Great service, wonderful food. It took a few bites to "get" the grilling done by us. The steak was tender and flavorful. I even tried my steak medium and it worked!! The waitress even offered a new hot stone when I took awhile to eat!!

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.
