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.

A fun and unique dining experience. Like everywhere, they seem to be a bit understaffed. A little pricey but a great time!

Good was excellent but service was extremely slow. Possibly due to being short staffed.

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.

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.
