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.

Waited for over 90 min to be seated and this was with reservations. Many tables were not cleared when were finally seated. Spoke with other who had waited longer than us.

Our priority seating was scheduled for 6:30 and after checking in and a final complaint we were seated around 7:15. We missed our 8:30 event that we had tickets for. Service was less than good. Still paid over $100 and my food came out cold because they prepared my steak for me.

The food was amazing as always but the service was the worst we have ever had there. It wasn’t overly busy but our server was never around.

Despite having priority seating reservations, we still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated, which seemed a bit excessive on a Monday evening. The table and seats were greasy, so they were obviously not well-cleaned between guests. Our server was friendly and courteous but he seemed overwhelmed and struggled to multi-task and handle multiple tables at once. We were seated for almost 10 minutes before our server finally took our initial drink order, and then almost 15 more minutes before we received our drinks. There were things floating in our drinks; it looked like the bartender may have reused the drink shaker without cleaning it out first, which was pretty gross. Our meals came out relatively quickly, and they were quite good. Due to the time it took to be seated, the time it took to be served, and the cleanliness issues, I don't know if I would return to this Black Rock location.

When I first read about this place I thought “why would I pay to cook my own steak”. Well I always try things once and this place is amazing!! Our server was awesome. It’s very Smokey and you come out smelling like steak lol. Will come again. Oh and the lobster dip was awesome (I don’t even like lobster, but it was that good!)

A great place to cook your own steak, if that's your thing. Otherwise, the options from the kitchen are worth the money. Deserts run about $10 apiece but they are all extremely oversized and very tasty. Our table was directly underneath the air conditioning vent and I was cold, but other than that it was well worth it!

Well besides the crazy slick floors and super slow service, the appetizer brought out was cold (the server offered to replace it for us thankfully) and so were the sides brought along with the steaks. Then once you starting cooking your own steaks the grease splatter was so bad that I wished I had taken a picture of the booth seat when we left because there were butt silhouette from the grease. My purse needed cleaned, my phone needed cleaned and I needed a shower ASAP. I can’t imagine bringing kids here. Matter of fact, I saw one family keep their kid pushed away from the table and I was wondering why, well when I got my steak I realized. Not worth the $100 I spent on 2 dinner and an appetizer (we drank waters).

priority seating is a joke, we waited 1 hour at the bar. The bartender and our waiter were great. The food was fair. We sat at a booth with a light that was so bright we had to wear our sunglasses. Not worth the effort.

On a busy night, priority seating still means 45-60 minutes past your time. We almost bagged it, but glad we didn't!! Food was awesome! Service friendly, and good considering so busy. Drinks were overpriced but the food was very reasonable. Enjoyed it!!

We went for my son’s 19th birthday. He had never been, but he loves trying new restaurants. Said it was the best steak he’d ever had. The serve me was friendly and timely. When we arrived to the restaurant we were seated right away.

Wonderful experience. We made a priority seating reservation, which is supposed to reduce your wait but not eliminate it. But ended up only waiting about 5 minutes. Food was terrific and our server was a doll. I feel horrible for not catching her name (cute little blonde, bubbly personality and impeccable makeup job.) But she was absolutely amazing: timely, knowledgeable about the menu, and very personable. We were celebrating my Dad’s 70th birthday and she was terrific with him. Will definitely be back!!

I'm not from the area, but the outside of Black Rock caught my attention. Was out and about and decided to see if reservations were required. Pleasantly surprised that priority seating was available.

Fun experience and the food was really good. We both loved the steaks. My husband said his mac n cheese and mashed potatoes weren't anything special but all of my food was really good. The pretzel app was delicious.

It’s good to try at least once. The food was very good. I would recommend it. If you don’t like to cook your own food, I wouldn’t get the meat selections on the rock, but they do have other menu items. The sirloins weren’t too pricey, but there are some pricey items on the menu.

Food was--as always--outstanding, and our server was great. Only real beef with the whole experience is the overall noise level. Food is fine dining quality, but the TV's etc. give the place an almost "sports bar" feel. That said, we can generally ignore the vintage football game. Black Rock is our go-to special event restaurant and is likely to remain so.

This was our first time.

The Bloody Mary was very good.

Appetizers were out of this world. The calamari was one of the best

The sirloin steak with the burgundy mushrooms was excellent.

Food was excellent. However, the timing of everything was poor. Salads came out with our meal, which was especially problematic here, as our steaks continued cooking while we ate our salads. Our waitress was really nice, but forgot our beers multiple times, and was wearing her mask on her chin. Our last round came out with our check, after we had finished eating, about 20 minutes after we ordered the drinks.

The food was so good that we’re torn about going back. If it had been average to ok, we’d not return based on the price point and the service. But it was delicious, so we may give it another shot.
