Steve & Rocky's purchases live oysters, lobsters, mussels, day boat caught fin fish, (un-soaked) sea scallops, fresh aged meats, extremely fresh produce, real heavy cream, pure unsalted butter, imported cheeses, and extra virgin olive oil. All of these fresh ingredients are rigorously specified based on our extremely high and exacting standards, painstakingly shopped based upon seasonality, and carefully inspected upon receipt. At Steve & Rocky's, critical ingredients are delivered daily to insure freshness. Their purveyors know that they will not accept anything but the absolute best quality ingredients and after years of working with them and competing to earn their business, they only send their very best. In the summer months, Chef Steve grows organic produce for the restaurant on his personal micro-farm.

Though many say Steve & Rocky's specializes in Seafood, Chefs Steve Allen and Chuck Rachwitz feel that the menu is diverse with something for every one's taste.

We started with the sampler of three soups which was excellent! With their delicious bread, we could almost have made a meal of soup and bread. However, we also had whitefish as they were out of the Atlantic cod (one of our favorites). It was very good. The side of green beans were excellent, too. We didn't have room for dessert. Thank you to Steve & Rocky's for the gift certificate we won through Best of Detroit.

Great food and service, despite the fact that the restaurant was full and had many large parties. Will definitely be back.

Everything was great with the exception of the house salad. The house salad dressing was almost non-existent.

This used to be one of our favorite venues but lately we are a little less than impressed. The last two visits weren't great and we aren't sure we will continue to go for a bit--we will be taking a break. The food wasn't prepared as ordered for my husband and my dish wasn't as fresh as it usually is. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and we expect the food and service to be on par each and every time.

The last two times we have dined at Steve and Rockys the food has been amazing. Not sure if there is a new chef or the recipes have changed. This last time I had the braised short beef and my son and husband had the walleye. We all enjoyed our meals very much. Highly recommend.

Our dinner was phenomenal and we will definitely return! From the house salad, mushroom soup, bread for the table, app, entree & dessert, it was all great. I had the grilled swordfish, which was cooked perfectly, and my guy the shrimp and lobster fettuccine. We had the fried calamari app which we liked a lot, and want to try the fried green tomato and burrata salad as an app next time. To top it off he got a chocolate peanutbutter pretzel cake and I a chocolate and graham cracker tarte with caramelized marshmallow on top. It's not a cheap place to eat, but you get what you pay for, and is worth every penny & calorie!

Excellent birthday celebration dinner. Filet Mignon was cooked perfect medium rare - most places seem to find this difficult to do. Salad fresh, great dressing, fresh potatoes - not watery, and dessert - wow apple strudel.
Going to go back and have the same meal it was that good.

Steve & Rocky's has long been a favorite in our family. The food is delicious and well-prepared. The staff is top notch. When we order filet mignon at other restaurants, the measure of quality is how it compares to the filet at Steve & Rocky's. Usually other restaurants fall very short. There were 4 of us in our party. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dinners. (Having everyone agree is rare!) In any event, we enjoyed our visit, the food was superb and our waiter Anthony was right on top of things, as always. Thanks for another wonderful dinner!

This restaurant is always an amazing choice! The restaurant itself is beautiful and unique in its decor and live pianist. The food is down to earth but completely delicious. Menu seems pricey for the area, but the portions are well worth it. Highly recommend the brown butter Lake Perch!

Food was great. We waited awhile for our food, we were told because one of us had ordered Duck. It would of been nice to no that up front. We bought our own cake for my mothers 92 nd Bday and they cut it up for us etc which was a great added services. The manager was very nice and overall it was a good experience.

Service was sketchy at night bus boys bussing all empty tables but none of the tables that had guests and dirty dishes at them.
When entrées came the entire table was filled with tasting plates bread and butter plates first course plates empty glasses
general manager walking around not paying attention to what anyone was doing otherwise he would’ve stepped in immediately .our server had three tables on a Monday night wasn’t overwhelmed but didn’t get much support from her assistant servers or general manager
Made for a very uncomfortable dining experience which overshadowed the food.
Which did shine

I've been to Steve and Rocky's a few times. This, by far was my worst experience. Our server was not very attentive. She did not ask if we wanted an appetizer, soup, salad or dessert. We thought something must be going on when two different managers came to our table to ask how everything was. Got the sense they were looking for us to complain.

Duck was dry. Chicken cordon bleu disappointing. Salmon ok. Too many smoked options on menu. Service very good.
