Service was very nice. Nice evening out to be sitting outside. Food is consistent every visit. Selfie burger was delicious with the house made sauce.

Delicious pizza. Attentive service to start, but as it got busier, service slowed. Had a party of 13, so excusable, but as it gets more popular, will need more staff.

About the restaurant
EXPERIENCE TEPPANYAKI
Japan Inn was established in 1990 when founders opened their first location in Plantation, FL. Since then we have been serving an extended variety of Japanese and Thai food including fresh sushi. We had the honor to be named Best Sushi Restaurant in Plantation by Hometown Herald readers.

In 2002 a second location was opened in Weston, FL, and soon enough it was voted Best Japanese Restaurant by “Best of Weston”.

Our third location was opened in Doral, FL during the summer of 2019, and we plan to keep growing to share our food and entertainment with our customers all over South Florida. The Japan Inn Group also owns Kimura Japanese Steak & Seafood located in Boynton Beach, FL.

The restaurant was very loud the whole time we were there. I had a reservation for 8:00, sat down by 8:10, but the chef didn’t arrive to cook until 8:50! The value of the food was very good in comparison to other restaurants in the area, just need more chefs….a new hostess with less attitude.

Exquisite. We ordered a number of dishes. Each one was better than the last. Staff was attentive and enthusiastic. We will definitely be back and we're bringing others with us. Don't miss this gem.

Steakhouse
Lauderdale by the Sea
About the restaurant
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 enjoyed out visit to Black Rock. The service was excellent and the meal was certainly unique. My only criticism is that the seating was very uncomfortable and that took away some of the fun that this dining experience offered.

Great for our 5 year old twins. Like going to Disney for an hour. No reason to go without children, unless you’re one of those who goes to Disney without children
