After having a horrible experience at Wisky John's and swearing I would never go out to eat again Thank you Brock House for restoring my faith in dinning out....... After a 4 hour hike with my daughter I had no energy left in me to...make something to eat so we decided to go for a late lunch, early super (LunSup) with hesitation because of that awful experience at Whiskey John's........ As we pulled up the parking lot was empty and that raised a red flag. We then proceeded inside and I saw a gentleman with long hair and Jean's and thought, oh great here we go again as we were greeted by him. I can honestly say I was delightfully surprised by his demeanor. He was very professional and accommodating and had us laughing and sat down promptly in a nice private clean fine dining space...... Our waiter attended to us in great time and was very helpful in directing me to the perfect beverage which I enjoyed immensely after the hike. As he served our drinks he rhymed off the speacials but we were both sold on the Prime rib and 4 Mushroom Pizza........ In the perfect amount of time both our food was delivered to the table. We started right into our meals and basically moaned in satisfaction as our taste buds were tantalized by the chef's masterpieces, my compliments to the kitchen......... Thanks again to "The Brock House" for restoring my faith in dinning out. You brought a perfect end to the day in a long over due fine dining out experience!!!More

Went back to thus restaurant after a 3 year hiatus when the owner said "..if you don't like it, don't come back" yes the owner! As restaurants are just opening up here in Durham and we were cebrating a birthday, we decided to give small...local businesses a boost, we decided to try The Brock House once again.......well, although the prime rib was tasty it was luke warm along with the veggies. The double baked potato was piping hot but very dry. I gave never had a double based potato baked then put back in the oven to melt the cheese. My experience has been the white if the potato gets mashed so when it is baked for the second time it is not dry as it was on this case. The waitress was lovely and offered to heat it up. We were do far into the luke warm meal and with the one hour time restriction we didn't want to be rushed and refused the offer. VERY disappointed that the owner didn't even show face! I guess I will take business elsewhere from now own. GOODBYE TBH for the last time. Don't know how you've stayed in business with such an attitude to the people of Whitby who have supported you over the years. Goodbye!More

I ordered the boneless beef short rib. The mash potatoes and au jus were delicious. The veg were carrots and green beans with asparagas The green beans were fresh and crispy. The carrots were very good. I passed on the asparagas. The beef short rib...was ok but there was very little of it on the plate. It was gone in 4 bites. Overall the service was ok. The meal itself was alright but at $30. was way overpriced.More

Pricey but never a bad meal. Staff is great. Appetizers are wonderful. I usually order some form of chicken. Always tender. Good wine selection.

Good food, but would not recommend. They are clearly set in their ways, resistant to change, and have no consideration for their customers. I took the risk to give them my business during the COVID19 pandemic, but they had no interest in accommodating a young...puppy to simply sit on the patio. The Ontario government even changed the law to permit this, clearly recognizing the need, particularly for pet owners traveling during the summer when temperatures are far too high to have them sit in the car. I understand that they probably have a lot of reservation requests so maybe mine doesn’t matter much to them, but I expect to be treated as a valued customer like any other. Any risk posed by having a puppy lie down while we eat was much lower than the risk of COVID19. The distance between most of the tables did not allow 2 m between the tables and people walking by. The person at the front, who was also greeting everyone and walking past all of these tables, was not wearing a mask. The “my way or the highway” attitude at this restaurant is obvious even when it comes to reservations, only offering them when required by law. Given this realization, I cannot recommend this restaurant and will not be supporting it any longer.More

We ordered a wonderful meal from The Brock House last night and it was fabulous. Everything was hot and exactly as ordered. The Beef Short Rib with mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy was melt-in-your-mouth delicious, The Bruschetta was outstanding, My wife ordered the ribs and...really enjoyed them. Kudos to the kitchen Staff, Chris and Maddison. We can make a difference . Support your local restaurant.More

I came here for the Sunday brunch the other day and it was amazing. I’m still full from all the food I ate. The food options were great which were typical breakfast items. There was also an omelette station, carving station, a pizza station and...a great selection of desserts including a chocolate fondue fountain. The ambiance was beautiful and the staff were amazingly friendly. I’m definitely coming back to try their dinner menu another time. I highly recommend you come here as the all you can eat Sunday brunch was an amazing experience and be sure to reserve your seats in advance before coming as I’m sure on any normal Sunday that it would be very busy. Thank you for the hospitality and I recommend anyone to come eat here as it’s great for families, social gatherings, and date nights.More
