“Chicken Panini was good! While visiting family, my nephew suggested a late evening meal at Black Rock.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

I didn't want to eat a lot see it was after 8pm. I had the chicken panini, it was good. Meat was warm, cheese melted. Iwe had a large party of 10 and was excited to get a booth, however, It was awkward to get in and out of the booth that was made to seat 10 people! We had to "pass" the food and beverages down the table. I would have preferred not to be a helper for the staff that night. I know that sounds selfish and maybe rude, but it was somewhat annoying to stop eating to pass something down the table. The waitress was apologetic, she too realized it was a bit of a hassle. The atmosphere was good. Staff was efficient and attentive. Great night at Black Rock.

“Awesome Concept”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

It is so much fun to cook your own steak on the hot rock! I am always afraid I'm going to burn myself, though. You can tell its quality meat too. The servers are friendly, it's a warm atmosphere. My husband recommends going at the end of the night and ordering the special - you might get extra food that way!

“I recommend reservations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Visited on a Tuesday evening and very glad we had reservations. This is a fun atmosphere location they had live entertainment in the bar/grill area. The main part of the restaurant has a pub/sport bar ambiance. I highly recommend you ask for the wine room area if you enjoy a little less noise and more private feel. The steaks are rather large and top quality, it was unique to cook your own steak on the hot rock. Hubby got the steak/rib combo and unfortunately the ribs were cold. Our server took care of that situation and they were brought back done perfectly. Did have one strange issue, with the sides offered our server told my husband he could not have soup and a salad even though he did not want any other sides with his meal. Never been told we couldn't order something that was a menu item at a restaurant before, would have gladly paid for the salad and did pay an upcharge for the soup which was extremely good, more than ample crock of mushroom soup with bubbling cheese topping. Server said if he got soup one of this other side choices had to be a starch or veggie could not be salad or coleslaw ???? (Think this must have been a misunderstanding and will address it with the manager at another time when the restaurant is less busy.) Desserts are sized to share and well presented. Will return again to enjoy another meal.

“Melt in your mouth Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

This restaurant has excellent ambiance and amazing food. What a great concept of cooking your rather large piece of seasoned steak/meat so it's cooked to perfection and hot as it hits your pallet. The house steak is plenty for any hearty appetite. The flat bread appetizer with cheese was crazy good also. The staff was friendly and gave us a coupon for our next visit for a free dessert because of the distance we traveled. They will be busy, so plan on waiting a bit, but as we all know all good things are worth waiting for. From Grand Blanc, Flint area... We got there in about 20 minutes. We'll be back. Hopefully this weekend. : )
