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.

    Service was the biggest issue. Waitress never came to check that all was good, which it wasn’t, missing food items that we ordered. If waitress is not the one to deliver the meal she should make a point to come by right after to be sure all is well. Missing side dish was delivered after 2 of us completed our meal. Since the food does not need to be cooked, they brought it out way to soon, still finishing salad. Side dishes were cold before we got to them. Food was ok but I don’t expect to find gristle in a filet.

    Crab legs were cold. My 37.00 steak wasn’t cooking on the black rock. Waitress checked on us at the beginning was not aware it wasn’t cooking at that time. Never came back and I had to use someone else’s rock at the table. My steak was like rubber at that point. The rice that I ordered with it was hard. So I didn’t eat that. When I told the waitress she blow it off so I asked to speak to a manager and the manager said that they were just too busy. I’m not really sure why your restaurants are so busy when most everyone who comes in your door cook their own food. I don’t think I’ll be coming back to this location again. It’s not the first time I’ve had bad service. I do have to say your coconut shrimp was amazing. Thank you for that.

    One of our favorite restaurants however they always seem to be under staffed. We had priority seating and was told there’s a 2 hour wait while half the restaurant was empty. Went last New Year’s Eve and they weren’t taking walk ins because they didn’t have enough staff.

    We waited almost an hour and was being told that it would be ten minutes they are clearing a table off. Then we would see people get sat who came after us multiple times. Went up multiple times to check. Finally another hostess took the table and sat us. It was our first time and was a horrible start

    It was a awful experience our appetizers came out after twenty five minutes plus and were cold . I tried to order the soup trio and was told that was no longer a option. I then ordered a reuben sandwich and the server came back to say they were out of corn beef,and let her go get the menu to bring back again because now I have to find a third option. My wife ordered a salad with bacon which she didn’t receive until remind the server. We told the server it was our first time there and we were celebrating my wife’s birthday and she seemed to have as much knowledge of the menu as of us and never acknowledge my wife’s birthday. The lack of menu items , the server lack of knowledge about the menu and her inability to play attention to details, slow service, cold food , all contributed to an horrible first experience at this establishment!

    Our rule is 3 and done. We like to try a place 3 times before never going back. Tonight was our 3rd time and definitely our last. The food is sub par at best. Service is okay when they are available. Overall each time we have been here it as been a total let down. Hopefully they can figure out a way to turn this place around.

    Me and my fiancé came in for dinner for our anniversary and everything was amazing ! Our server was immaculate , and definitely delivered genuine hospitality even though she was also waiting on a large party behind us. I wish I could remember her name but I remember she was a manager as well. Overall , I highly recommend Black Rock !

    Our waitress was unattentive. She basically ruined our whole experience. We were seated for 10 mins and no one approached us until we asked for the watress. Then we had to keep asking for forks, water from another person because she was nowhere to be found. Also she rushed us to pay our bill.

    Only issue I have is that staff wouldn't seat us until our whole party arrived, not everyone moves at the same pace are whole party did not arrive at the exact time that we set up. It would be great to make people be exactly on time but it just isn't realistic, we had multiple people coming from different places so a little leancy could still work for the restaurant and its customers.

    I paid a lot of money to cook my own steak, and it was totally worth it. I don’t leave the steak on the rock, I cook each slice individually so each bite is perfectly cooked and hot when I put it in my fork!

    We enjoy going to Black Rock. My 9year old son really likes cooking his own steak, and he’s pretty good at it. The chili is a little sweet, but I think it’s very good. Kyle our waiter was very friendly, very attentive to our questions and needs. We will definitely go back soon!

    Initial impression was not good; dour greeter. Took us into the bar. Drink menu had no prices, sever was slow to arrive. So while it didn't start out great, the server rescued the meal. Very friendly and attentive once she arrived. Food was OK. Menu was a little complicated (lots of options to decide, etc). All things considered it was a good experience. My worry about going back would be if we got saddled with a grumpy server, and from the looks of it there were plenty of them.

    This was our first experience at Black Rock, and we enjoyed it very much! Seated immediately, great staff, food was really tasty! I enjoyed the atmosphere and definitely appreciated having the Lions game on every TV, just to keep up with the score! The birthday desert was lovely and enjoyed by the entire party! Thanks again for a memorable experience!

    My reservation was for 4:15 on a Sunday. When I arrived they told me that I’d have to wait because ALL of the servers were in a meeting. The restaurant had patrons dining. So you can imagine how confusing it was that the entire waitstaff was in a meeting. When the hostess sat us, the both appeared dirty. The seat and the table had liquid all over the place. Naturally we asked to move. The next booth had the same issue, so we moved…the third booth had the same issue. So we just asked them to clean the table. After a few minutes of sitting in the booth the ceiling began leaking. There was a leak in the ceiling above the entire section, yet they continued to seat the area. To top it all off we had a serving in training and her trainer was not teaching her to check on her tables. I had to get up and grab my own side plate. The ribeye was tough and the overall experience was terrible. I wouldn’t recommend this location to anyone.

    I love cooking my own steak and lobster exactly how I like it. Our server was amazing. She was so sweet and super professional. The food was outstanding and came out fast and hot. The drinks were so good especially their house drink The Black Rock Hurricane.. this made for a great date night. There’s nothing better than good food, great company and lots of laughs
