Formerly Norman's Eton Street Station, Big Rock Chophouse 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. Big Rock Chophouse is the proud recipient of the prestigious American Culinary Federation’s 2014 Achievement of Excellence Award, an honor that was previously awarded to only three other Michigan restaurants before that year. The restaurant's mouthwatering menu bursts with flavorful recipes centered around enormous, hand-cut aged steaks, delicious lamb chops, and the freshest seafood.

Big Rock was jumping on Saturday night. Lots of people waiting for their tables in good-size groups. We were a little late for our reservation with frienda . The hostess was very busy having the groups taken to tables when we approached her. It did not go well. Not a good beginning. However, the waiter was excellent, the steaks were particularly good. A problem was the noise around us...large groups of people having a good but loud time. It is what I would classify as expensive, but consider it well worth revisiting.

We love this place! The atmosphere is just spectacular--you can have train-car chic, or upscale woodsy-classy chic; both are gorgeous. The service is outstanding--very helpful and knowledgeable and friendly without being intrusive, the food good. The only less than great aspect was the Moscow Mule I ordered at the bar, which was kind of sour rather than sweet, which was weird--maybe they have their own version? Otherwise, the drink variety is great, the pour is generous, and they have the best non-alcoholic beer option around! I highly recommend!

The menu choices are varied and the food is beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The restaurant has a complementary valet parking, which I very much appreciated as parking is limited. The staff is professional, courteous and qualified.

Fantastic food and service. A little pricy but well worth it for a special occasion. The Brussels sprouts were a little underwhelming but everything else was very good, especially the NY strip.

I hadn’t been here for a few years but I have to say this was the best Filet I have had in a long time. Better than Hyde Park, Capital Grill, Morton’s... all of them. They don’t ladle butter over it before serving, just pure filet with an incredible zip sauce served in the side. the service was fantastic. I will be back more often.

Lovely dinner menu, but they never seem to have the Norm's beer on tap. If you come for happy hour in a group, the bar tender lady can get a bit impatient.

Both of our meals, lobster and fish, WAY too salty. They took the lobster back and “washed” it but still too salty. Also you pretty much have to valet for 7 dollars. Unless you park out on the streets. Atmosphere great. Service also great.

The food was phenomenal, and our server, Beverly, was beyond wonderful -- but what really impressed us was the AMAZING selection of scotch. We are not huge cigar smokers but did end up visiting the cigar bar upstairs, where Tony and Jorge introduced us to some more wonderful scotches. Will definitely make the drive to come back!

Excellent service, good food. Enjoyed our meal but found everything to be excessively salty. If prices had been more reasonable, I wouldn’t complain about salt. But my husband’s filet and fries were $54, and he couldn’t eat more than a few fries because they were so salty. The scallops and seafood chowder were good, but also too salty. Food at this price level should be better seasoned.

Delicious dessert menu, and very attentive, knowledgeable server.

Good food, nice atmosphere, very friendly and attentive service. Only down side was the expense, was odd that their steaks don't come with a side, everything is additional ($40/each for steaks, $12 salad for two, and another $10 for mashed potatoes to share). And this restaurant only had two $ online...Should be at least $$ or $$.

The setting is beautiful, the decoration and atmosphere are superb, the food is... average. And very expensive. If you're looking to impress a lady friend, this is the place to do it. If you're looking to rub shoulders with some very well-dressed people who own expensive cars, this is the place to do it. If you're looking to spend $200+ on a meal for two that you could easily have gotten for under $50 elsewhere, this is the place to do it. Your call.
