The Big Rock Grill is an absolute gem in Foothills Industrial. Do not let the perception of its location fool you, this is the best lunch in town. Not only is the beer a local institution in its own right, the grill has a charming, casual atmosphere, very quick and efficient service, as they cater to business lunches, and an... More

Second time coming to Big Rock for lunch, and it was excellent. I had the schnitzel burger, it was awesome. The schnitzel was nice and crisp to the bite and still moist on the inside. The pretzel bun has to be the best I've ever had fresh and the perfect density. Had it with their Mosaic Lager and was great... More

I came here last week for a retirement lunch for my colleague. There were about 14 of us and although there was a lot of seating and bathrooms were nice and clean, the food was just bland. the steak was lacking flavor and it was pretty much cold when I sat down to eat it (I was in the bathroom...

I have met friends at the Big Rock Grill and also taken business associates there. Excellent on all accounts- Beer (beer menu changes monthly)and beer suggestions, prompt time for meal arrival---choice of desserts was ample. Even the pricing was very fair for a great quality meal. Big Rock Grill really ROCKS. Its always been a consistent winner and with summer... More

Working in the SE your lunch options are limited. If you're looking for an oasis away from the busy roads and fast food fair I highly recommend the Big Rock Grill. With a well thought out menu full of options to suit everyone's taste you're sure to leave satisfied. The patio is beautiful and quiet when the garden is in... More

Over the last ten years I have enjoyed this restaurant and have witnessed many changes to this establishment. Of course the brew is always the best. For a time, the service was slow and the food was cold and beer was warm, but that has changed. The service is fast and the beer is cold but the food isn't keeping... More

My favourite restaurant on this side of Calgary. Great fusion of American and German style food, the portions are good sized. Service is consistently solid, it can get busy over the lunch hour, not the best place for a business meeting. A generous selection of beer, of course, we are in a brewery...
