We live nearby. I almost forgot how wonderful this place is for dinner. The food is yummy, the service is great and it's actually beautiful - especially if it's a nice night and you can dine outside. What a gem!

Met a friend for Happy Hour here and it was very disappointing. The bartender seemed bothered by every question. The food was weak, the place was completely empty, which I suppose should have been the tip off.

If you like meat, this is your kind of place! The food is spectacular and the wine and cocktail list isn't shabby, either. I highly recommend the specials of the day as well as the wine recommendations by your server, especially if his name is...More

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.
