My Mom & I had an amazing dinner out together. I had the prime rib (best I've ever tasted!!) and my Mom had the fish and chips (she said it was delicious). For dessert, we shared the carrot cake and the chocolate torte= wow! On...top of the delicious food, we had excellent service provided by our server, Sadie. She was friendly, welcoming, and worked efficiently. We would highly recommend this restaurant and fully intend to return one day.More

Very nice ambiance on the interior, comparable to a Chop steakhouse or Keg, even though the exterior makes it look more like a casual dining restaurant. On a Sunday night, the service was excellent, our waitress was attentive, and our drinks and food arrived promptly....Unfortunately, even though we didn't have to wait long for our food, it was only lukewarm upon service. I ordered the pork schnitzel, and it was bland, even with the gravy. When the strongest flavour on the plate is the oil the schnitzel was fried in and the seasonal vegetables, there's an issue. I finished it only because it cost $26. My partner ordered a caprese pizza, it tasted good, but could have used another minute in the oven. For a restaurant that is pretentious enough to charge for table bread and butter, there's absolutely no excuse for sub-par main courses.More

Prime Rib dinner to go for Four - this dinner was ordered Saturday for pick up Sunday. The were a few requests about our order and I needed to speak to staff. The chef, the manager and the server were so kind and helpful. Everything...was packaged up so well and easy to manage. The chef provided instructions on how to reheat the Prime rib. The meat and all the food turned out well. The Prime Rib was hot, juicy , tender and pink. Everyone raved about it. Such flavour!!. The portions were generous. We look forward to our next visit. Oh, I must add the cost was very reasonable for a 5 star meal. Thank you Brock House.More

This was my first time dining at The Brock House in Whitby. It's an intimate place offering comfort food, family dining, a full service bar, pizza oven, and more. They have something for every desire. Our party of seven came for dinner on a Friday...evening. We started light, by sharing some Focaccia, and Mini Yorkies (Yorkshire pudding cups, mashed potatoes, shaved prime rib, mushroom beef gravy). For our mains, we had the Short Rib Pizza, Korean Fried Chicken + Waffles, Pork Schnitzel, Slow Braised Boneless Beef Short Rib, and the Pasta Special of the Day, which included seafood in a creamy sauce. Everything was quite good, and very reasonably priced. The food, service, and ambiance at this place were all very good. I would most definitely come back.More

Another shower celebration, this time for my cousin's youngest daughter getting married in Boston July 1/23. We got the elevated room with all the windows. There were 15 of us and it was a lovely lunch with great company and fabulous food.

The wife and I thought we would try the Brock House as we had heard good things, so we went and got seated in the back area with the fireplace and TV on the wall. So far so good. Drinks ordered and then we ordered...the apps once the drinks came. I started getting antsy when my app order seemed to be taking over 15 mins. Folks are hungry when they first arrive so I was hoping our server would speed things up. Not so more talking and watching other tables get their apps whlle we were hungry. App came finally and the Calamari was great. The main food came after not too long and it was amazing, one of the best roast beef prime ribs I have ever had. My wifes food was the Beef Brisket and it was great too. So to keep score 10/10 for food quality - 7/10 for service. Servers need to keep in mind to be there when needed but not become the centre of attention by needless and excessive chatting. Its a fine balance and when the server gets the timing right you will not notice but when you have to wait due to chatter its gets frustrating. Guests may seem friendly but servers have to realize they are not the main attraction. So overall great food, slow app service with chatty server. But will go again. CHeers PaulMore

We were invited to a Baby Shower being held in a party room at this Restaurant. The decor was nice and the food good. Delicious veggie platter, potato salad and Roast Beef sandwiches. The serve was spotty, had to go to the bar several times...for drink orders. Desserts were fair.More

The meal I had was their Lamb Sirloin which I was so looking forward to since I have not been out to a restaurant since Covid hit. Well unfortunately, it wasn't good. It was chewy and fatty, I hardly could chew it without hurting my...jaw. The wine I ordered was good, but for an 8oz at $15.00, I could have just bought the bottle. Expensive.More

My husband and I eat out a lot in Toronto as well as Durham, the US and abroad as there is just the two of us. We have driven by The Brock House many times and wanted to try it as they have a beautiful...patio. We arrived around 3:00PM. The patio was almost empty. We were ushered to a small table for two which would barely be able to hold a dinner plate and drinks. We asked for one of the bigger tables but we were told that's only for four people and there were reservations for 5:00PM. So we went inside and it too was basically empty. We ordered the Mini Yorkies they were okay but way too much salt. My husband ordered the Shepherds Pie and it too was over salted, mainly just mashed potato hardly any meat, he had half a dozen mouthfuls and left it. I ordered the lamb and again hardly any meat over some potatoes. The wine list was poor with very few international choices. Given how nice the restaurant looked I would have thought they would have a much better wine selection. The meal is way overpriced for what you get and for the quality of the food. And as for why we were refused the table for 4 on the patio is still a puzzle because we left the restaurant at around 5:00PM and the patio was still almost empty. We'll never bother to go there again, there are too many other restaurants with lots of choice on the menu and where the food and the wine list is excellent. This place just isn't worth it. The place definitely needs a new cook.More

Now I understand that nothing has been open for so long but just properly prepared food in any restoration should be a must. With less than ideal surroundings simple things should never been overlooked. To start less then friendly service from the server should never...have occurred. No only was she uninformed about the menu the upselling of each product was confusing. When questioned about a dish she recommended she admitted to have never had. The food is where I was disgusted with. Cold lobster mash potatoes was my wife's starter. Then a beautiful looking baked potato until you passed the toppings. The middle was as hard as concrete and couldn't be eaten. The beef dip looked good but same issue. The meat was also bleeding so that was incorrectly prepared. Everything was bland and poor prepared. No social distancing so I guess that is the ambience. The only bright side was the Cesar salad was good but if you can't make a salad properly you should close down. If you like over prized food at a poor quality this is perfect placeMore

Finally, we went out for dinner once the lockdown eased and I'm glad we did. After driving by this restaurant over the years, it was now time to go and give it a try. All I can say was that it was well worth it....This place boasts a nicely designed, fair-sized patio that could easily accommodate social distancing. The menu was extensive with options for almost every palate. We had the Beef Barbacoa Nachos appetizer and main dishes of Cajan Salmon and Fish and Chips. As a birthday surprise, we were provided with a Flowerless Chocolate Torte dessert, which was delicious. The food portions were a good size and the meal was very tasty. Also, the service was excellent and we have Laura to thank for that. This restaurant is a definite "HIT" for me, and I recommend it for a nice meal out.More

My daughter, son in law, and grandkids were visiting from out of town and bought the entire family dinner. I had the 10oz Strip and it was impeccable to say the least! the rest of the food looked amazing but back to that steak whoa...let me tell you that steak was on a level above and beyond anything I've seen from any restaurant in a long time. I mean it was $40 so it better be damn good and it was so much better then that. You absolutely pay for what you get here infact its worth every penny probably the best take out meal I've had during this covid thing.More
