I would like to personally Thank each and every person as well as The Big
Rock Chop House for the wonderful lunch that was provided for the staff,
clients and neighbors of Cass Community Social Services in Detroit. The
food was wonderful. The love and level of caring that your staff and
volunteers shared with all of us who were there was truely appreciated.
Beyond what words alone could ever express. It is people and businesses
such as yours who really make a difference in peoples lives. Kudos to all
those involved in making this day a blessed one.

I just wanted to thank you for all of your assistance in planning this event and
making it go so smoothly. Everyone was very pleased with the results and those
whom had never been to the restaurant before want to return.

Also, kudos to the wonderful staff that assisted with the party. They were
so helpful and could not seem to do enough for us.

Again, thank you for making this shower a pleasure to do at the restaurant.

My husband and I dined at Big Rock on Saturday evening, and I just wanted
to thank you for a wonderful experience. Our waitor, Dave, was so great and
his passion for his job was obvious and contagious. We were at Big Rock
celebrating our anniversary, but we did not share this with Dave until the
very end of our meal. It was great to know that we were not receiving
special treatment because it was our anniversary, but because Dave must
treat all of his customers with such genuine enthusiasm. Thank you for a
great experience!

Company Event

Hi Laurie,

I just wanted to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU for an excellent job on our special event yesterday!!! You and your staff did an absolutely PHENOMENAL job with the setup, food & drink service, the cleanup, EVERYTHING. I have never experienced such wonderful service across the board, from the waitstaff to the managers (and it was a pleasant surprise to see you there in person right in the thick of it as well), not to mention that the food was absolutely OUTSTANDING. I can’t tell you how many guests were just amazed and thoroughly impressed at the presentation and service your staff provided. That is what meant the most to Sue and I. We are truly grateful for having my first niece (Sue’s grandchild) welcomed with a celebration that was as pleasant as you were able to provide for us. It was such a wonderful overall experience, a seamless event that we will always remember in a very positive way.

Thanks again, and please pass this along to ALL of the employees involved – we can’t thank them enough!!!

Bridal Shower

Dear Katie,

Thank you so much for a job well done!! The Bridal Shower for Angelina was fabulous this past weekend. I have been getting calls all weekend commenting on how over the top everything was from the tomato bisque to the main entree, hors d’oeuvres,cake, service and the spectacular ambiance. I could not have asked for anything better.

It was a pleasure working with you and I will definitely keep the Big Rock Chophouse on my list of favorites for special occasions.

Thank you again for everything you did in making this joyous occasion for my son and his future bride such a fabulous event!

Kind Regards,
