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.

    We still had a 20 minute wait for getting to table. Table next to us came 30 minutes after us but they got food sooner? Our waitress was absent alot and didn't seem thrilled to be there.

    For was very good - pretzel appetizer was very tasty, bourbon smash drink excellent, salad fresh, fish tacos tasty with a good amount in each. Our server, Camryn was excellent, one of the best we’ve had anywhere. Prompt, knowledgeable service without hovering. A true professional.

    Service was slow, not how it normally is. Took 1 hour and 45 minutes to get through. Took an hour before we got any food…other servers were getting food out a lot faster to tables that came in after we did.

    Although a 20 minute wait is certainly preferred to a 90 minute wait, when you make a point to make priority seating arrangements for a certain time you should be seated at that time.

    The food was great a little pricey. But definitely worth it. Recommend using priority seating. Especially if going there for dinner. Seen several couple come in without priority seating and was told an hour to hour and half wait. The waitress was wonderful, great knowledge of the food. And drinks. The experience was great loved it.

    Absolute terrible experience from beginning to end. Waitress had too many tables and took an overly extended time to do anything for us. This resulted in over half of our table getting a cold entree. The best part was the manager lacked courage to even come to our table and apologize. Nothing was taken off our bill and blown away by the lack of understanding for an already overpriced restaurant.
