The "doing-business-as" name matches exactly the restaurants operated by a regional Michigan-based chain, Black Rock Restaurants, which operates 11 "Black Rock Bar & Grill" locations, mostly in Michigan and Florida. The restaurants serve their steaks sizzling on a 755-degree volcanic rock, Black Rock's web site says.
