Always dependable when it comes to steak and one of the rare places that will cook it very rare. But seafood is the hidden treasure at this place. Almost as good as right off the boat! Service is pretty good. Parking is always a problem as they seem not to have enough when the restaurant is below capacity.

We have been dining at Black Rock for years. The food has always been very good with the occasional oops dish (? substitute chef) The wait staff is pleasant and attentive. Many people enjoy cooking their food on "the rock". They offer cooking your own food on a hot rock at your table (like steak, fish, chicken etc) Cheapest steak... More

Our family visited this restaurant by change. While the atmosphere is dated and you leave smelling like a restaurant, the food was great. My husband enjoyed the filet and I really enjoyed the vegetables on the rock. Kids enjoyed having their food cook in front of them on the black rock.

OK -- I’ve sung the praises of Black Rock, and then expressed some disappointment over cold service, smaller portions and increased prices. Maybe they listened? Returned today for lunch. Denese, our favorite waitress from the past, greeted us like long lost family, and provided excellent, warm, attentive service throughout our meal. I was glad for the trainee waitress getting tutored... More

Past experience should have kept us away but my Mom wanted to take us out to dinner in memory of her mother. We made reservations 3 days ahead for 6 people. Unfortunately my son came down with a stomach bug and was unable to join us at the restaurant last minute. When my mom arrived there ahead of us she... More

Menu has something for everyone. Speciality is steak, was only OK. The chicken parm was good as was the broiled seafood mix. We went on a busy winter holiday night, very crowded and service on the slow side. I imagine this is not always the case.

Dined here one night while in Springfield. Parking was a little tough because of the crowd even though we stopped in at 5:15. After about a 15 minute wait we were seated and did wait a bit for our waitress who by the way was somewhat slow but extremely pleasant. We ordered the salad bar, which was excellent with a... More

The place was dirty and by this I mean tables, floor, dishes, very uncomfortable seating. The waitress was rude and unattentive. I found a hair in my salad and told the waitress. I said someone should check the salad. She didn't even apologize or anything or offer another alternative. Then I said I shouldn't be charged for this when the... More
