On the campus of ferris state University. Great food, with many station s to pick from. Parking is not the best for locals. Have to feed meters. But is a grwat value for the money.

It is price fixe . . for four adults and one child, lunch was $34 . . and you had a choice of Mongolian BBQ type grill, ribs, mashed potatoes, burgers,... More

OK, this may seem weird but I found the best eating establishment in Big Rapids is The Rock. Having been forced to eat there 45 years ago it seemed like a stretch but WOW what a change. The Mongolian BBQ was great and all of the food was made to order not warmed over cafeteria food. It is open to... More

It is a little misleading to call this a restaurant. It is a college cafeteria and its main purpose is to feed the students at FSU. But, the public can also eat there, which makes for some long lines at the popular stations like Mongolian barbecue. I have a student at Ferris and have gone here with guest passes several... More

My cousins brought us here for lunch. Everyone loved it. The cost was less than $8.00 per person. There was so many different options. I tried the pizza first which was very good. The salad bar had many selections and was very fresh. The mongolian bar was really good as you picked your veggies and stirfry sauce and them your... More

Great variety of food and beverages. Everything we tried was really good. The mongolian grill (or whatever they call it here) was a nice touch...build your own stir fry. There aren't a ton of places with variety in Big Rapids, but the FSU cafeteria certainly has it. My daughter is a student and guest pass'd us so I can't comment... More

The nice part with this restaurant is you pay one price when you walk in and it was under 10.00 A person and you don't leave a tip. It reminds me of a food court at a mall all kinds of varietys of drinks included! It is a nice place that the public young and old can come to from... More

Went there for the first time for an anniversary dinner for a family member. This is a must check out restaurant if you have a family that everyone likes something different. You have several choices to make your dining experience enjoyable.

I am no food expert but the kids and I always enjoy eating at The Rock. For $8 per adult there are a ton of choices and I have not had a bad meal there yet. Love the vast selection and always fun the visit campus. If we are in Big Rapids the kids demand we eat there!
