This is a good place to try out if you want a decent beer and a reasonably priced plate of food. Good sized bar area and a handy place to head to if you’ve been on a plane all day from Elsewhere in the world....More

Not sure if this is a chain or not. The bulk of their menu is based upon the concept of taking very rare meat and delivering it to your table on a 700° rock. You then cook to your desired doneness, by cutting off little...More

I’ve been here several times. I love the filet mignon on the rok. Overall I enjoy all items in menu. If you order a hamburger my advise is not to order the volcano rok burger, the mix of ingredients ruins the angus beef.

On a recent evening, we stopped in for a mid-week dinner and really enjoyed our evening. And unlike so many 'steakhouses", ROK offers good value for its delicious meals. The specialty is to serve your uncooked entree on a 700 degree volcanic 'rok' where you...More

I went to Rok expecting another steakhouse. Instead, I found an interesting experience. I ordered the steak which was brought out on a heated stone slab only browned on each side and raw in the middle. I was advised to cut 1/4 inch slices and...More

Wow what a unique way to cook steaks. They should open one on the big island of Hawaii. But the steaks are great and even the picky eater will love these steaks. Their sides are just as outstanding. Vegetable not cooked enough, just place it...More
