Since 1997, Big Rock Chophouse has been the place to dine in Metro Detroit. The building itself holds a lot of history and memories. Built in 1931, this now restaurant used to be the Birmingham Train Station, giving it city and state historical designations. The gorgeous building was closed down in 1978 due to lack of use and maintenance costs. It sat unused until 1984, when the LePageís and their partners remodeled it into a restaurant – Normanís Eton Street Station. Normanís Eton Street Station was the talk of the town for quite some time, but as it goes in this industry, the restaurant eventually needed an update. In 1996 the LePageís got new partners and gave the restaurant a makeover, unveiling Big Rock Chophouse in 1997.Executive Chef Matthew Fitchett brings new, fresh ideas to Big Rock Chophouse.
