Love the concept - you pick the meat, they provide the 755 degree stone, you cook the meat. But the meat was kind of tough (we chose sirloin), the knives weren't sharp, not much flavor (you have options to add). Also other types of food available. Lobster bisque was yummy - other items were OK. For my money (and it... More

Though pricey, Black Rock provided a fun and delicious venue for a special birthday celebration. The unique cook your own steak idea was great and everyone raved about the food. Service was quick and 2 desserts was enough for our table of 7. Highly recommend, but be ready to pay...

The service was good if not great but the food was subpar and gimmicky for the price. It was good for a one-time visit but certainly not a place I would want to return to. I could find better food at a cheaper price at many other local establishments.

Went here for dinner at about 6:00 on a Saturday night. We were sat down right away, but I think their was a wait to be seated not long after. The service was great and very fast. Our food almost came out too fast! We had filet, lobster tail, house salads, and fish and chips. All of the food was... More

If you don't mind cooking your own dinner this is the way to go. If not using the rock the rest of the food is fine, too.

Seems like a weird idea but this place has exactly that ! A weird idea that turns into a yummy feast ! You cook your steak on a volcanic rock so that each piece is warm when you want it warm! Sauces are great too ! Try it, you'll like it .

In Michigan for the first time, we ate here on a Thursday night. It was busy and we had reservations for a table of eight. We waited a half hour past our reservation time and were pretty cranky but it was worth the wait. Plus the manager comped our appetizers and took 20% off the meal They've got a huge... More

Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff. Food is delicious. Cook your own steaks. Fish, etc. provided a great, private area for a birthday celebration. Very accommodating. Our waiter was amazing.

My husband and I went to Black Rock bar and grill on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. I had heard that they were incredibly popular and that there could a long wait for a table. The restaurant does not take reservations, but other reviewers had suggested calling ahead and asking for call ahead seating. I called about 6:30... More
