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.

    Rock didn’t keep hot long enough to finish cooking our food. Had to request another. Fries weren’t hot at all. I’m not into complaining so I just left well enough alone.

    The smoke level is higher than it should be inside this place. I have been to cigar bars that better manage the air quality than this restaurant. I was not impressed with the food either. My Ceaser salad was drowned in dressing and mushy. The half slab of ribs was covered in a BBQ sauce that was way too sweet for my taste. My steak was good, but I did cook it myself so.... It has been a couple years since our last visit but I got a gift card for xmas so we tried it again. Overall, this is not a place for me, so I probably won't return. BTW, you do not actually get a reservation thru Open Table, you just get put in line so keep that in mind

    They really need some music playing in the restaurant. The seats were also torn up in the booths. It was so quiet in there that all you could hear was the staff from the kitchen yelling. Very awkward. Our server was good, but the experience was pretty lackluster and probably won’t go back.

    Used priority seating, and seemed to work well as we were seated shortly after arriving at our scheduled time. This time on Sunday, 5-6p, was not too noisy to have conversation over dinner. Server was great and attentive.

    The food was amazing as always as this is not the first visit to this chain, but the first visit to this location. The service was probably the worst service we have ever received. First off had priority seating and waited 40 minutes to get called. Then we were seated and waited 15 minutes before anyone even said a word to us. Got menus and waited another 20 minutes before being asked if we were ready to order drinks, obviously we were ready to order everything and did so. Then we don’t see the waiter again for what seemed like forever. After another extended period of time, we get our salads and still no drinks. I finished my salad and still no drinks. Finally I saw the waiter and walked over to him and asked where our drinks were and asked how I could get and finish a salad before we even get a single drink, not even water! No answer really other than apologies. After some more time someone else finally comes over and asks if everything was ok, obviously it was not. It was over an hour before our food came, keep in mind that the steak comes to you raw because you cook it yourself, like wtf took so long? It was busy but not crazy busy. I don’t know what was going on at this place as we heard other tables complaining as well. After almost 2.5 hours we were finally able to leave with our 2 drinks paid for and an apology. Worst restaurant experience I’ve ever had to endure. I have it one star for because the food was good, otherwise it would have been zero stars.

    When your waiter tells you “Not to order the soup” because you won’t be happy with it….ANY FLAVOR!…..an uneasiness sets over the table! Food took extraordinarily long considering we were cooking it! Not our best experience!

    First time at Black Rock. Really enjoyed our food and our service. Sides portions are very small, but entree and dessert portions were very large. It was quite noisy with all the talking and cooking on the rocks. Interesting that they don’t have a strong ventilation system to get rid of the smoke. Makes the entire place look hazy. It was overall a fun experience and we will likely be back!

    Dinner was delicious and very nice atomosphere for my son birthday celebration. I would do it again. Our waitress was exceptional and very engaging. We had a wonderful experience all except we waited over an hour after ordering to get our food brought to the table. But the management gave us complienments to conpensate us.

    Obviously everyone is shorted staffed. We were dining with a toddler. Took almost 45 minutes to order. Choices weren’t available because the plates/dishes were stolen. Seriously they was the explanation. After finally ordering 20 minutes later we were told they ran out of NY Strips. When the food arrived portions were missing and took another 15 minutes before they arrived. Took over 2.5 hours to dine there and just wasn’t worth it.

    I really enjoyed the food and our server was lovely!! The only thing that was a little hard to deal with was the smokiness. I know customers cook their food themselves, so there’s going to be smoke, but it was quite overwhelming most of the time and I did leave with a headache. I don’t know if more fans and vents are a possibility, but they are definitely needed. I know I sound like a Karen, but I’m far from it. I promise. I really enjoyed everything else!! The priority seating was great. We only waited about 5 minutes to be seated after we arrived.
