My husband and I decided to try this restaurant as we were celebrating a good outcome of a medical test. Little did we realize how delicious the food would be and what excellent, over-the-top service we would receive. We both had the Short Rib dinner with asparagus along with a Ceasar Salad. From the coffee and tea to the key... More

I like this place. I like the atmosphere, the service, the food. But this time our dinner was below expectations in terms of quality and a bit too expensive.

We go a couple of times per year and it never disappoints! It's not cheap, but I highly recommend it.

We met family members here for a pre-Christmas lunch and we were very pleased. I had the buffalo burger and it was very good. It was served with onion rings that were superb although French fries were an option. My wife had the short ribs and mashed potatoes and included a terrific chocolate Yule log fir dessert which was large... More

My medium steak was way over cooked - charred! All I could taste was burnt steak. For $44, I expected my steak to be perfect. My husband's steak was cold! We couldn't believe that such an expensive steakhouse would serve food like this. We were disappointed.

This is a high end restaurant, with prices to match. It has a dark, traditional, sort of stuffy atmosphere. The frittata was bland; the French onion soup was excellent. The beet salad was fine, but overpriced. Bread pudding was served cool, not warm. The service was a bit officious---like when it is superficially polite, but the server looks off into... More

Big Rock has a dont miss happy hour! The braised short rib and calamari for 5 bucks is a geat deal. They also have all kinds of other items and drink specials. I have eaten dinner there too. Excellent steaks. The Master Chef Gabby is also magnificent and is always checking in with customers.

We stopped in after an evening meeting. The staff was warm and accommodating. It was after 9pm. We ate @ the bar. We had steak tips and aoli fries. Very tasty. Fresh and hot. We look forward to going back for lunch or dinner.

Walking in the atmosphere is warm and inviting; the Bar area is very interesting to design and the over all layout was nice. The Butternut squash soup to start with was very nice; especially on a cool rainy day. The Hamburger was also nice and finished off with Bread Pudding. All in all, it was a very nice lunch and...

Visited for lunch with a business associate. While the decor is warm and inviting, the wait staff lacked the charm to match the ambiance of the interior. Ordered the French dip and found the beef to be tough and well done. Menu items were pricey and definitely worth the $$. Too many other places to spend your money in Birmingham.

Formerly Norman's Eton Street Station, Big Rock Chop House combines the rustic, casual feel of a mountain lodge with the high-energy of a contemporary club, an eclectic mix unlike any other Metro Detroit dining experience, The menu bursts with enormous, hand-cut, aged steaks & chops, including a 24oz Porterhouse, a 16oz Kansas City Strip Steak, a 20oz or 32oz Jumbo Bone-In Rib Eye, a 12oz Filet Mignon, Center Cut Pork Chops, double cut Lamb Chops & a 16oz Veal Porterhouse Chop. Other selections include Rocky Mountain Chicken, Canadian Whitefish & Dover Sole presented tableside.
Adjoining the restaurant is a brew house, with custom, state-of-the-art equipment. Award-winning brew master Dan Rogers has created 4 signature beers to compliment the restaurant's distinctive American fare: Norm's Raggedy Ass Ale, Raymondo El Rojo, Flying Buffalo Stout & Weizenheimer Hefe Weizen. In addition to these, Rogers adds a seasonal & specialty brew to the bar, which he changes frequently.
