Way too much wine in the bucatini and the creme brûlée just wasn’t good but everything else was great.

The food and drinks were fine but the noise level was ridiculous as there was a Bachelorette party going on in the bar upstairs and for some reason the partition/doorway was kept open allowing all the noise into the dining room below.

I am vegan and there was nothing really on the menu. The server asked the chef and they said they could mix sides or they would love to be creative. Creativity worked. Awesome meal!! And they had vegan cheesecake for desert.

For a very expensive dinner the food wasn’t that great. My husband had the short rib and it was not done enough so it was tough. My seafood pasta had very little flavor. Overall it was a typical hotel dining experience of adequate quality for a high price. Wine selection was great though! Service was good though! Beware the menu changes every night so don’t count on things you see being on the menu that night.

Very good experience. Third time there for dinner. Nice ambience. Great wine selection. My husband loved his scallops over couscous dinner but my chicken Marsala was not very good. Chicken was over cooked and too salty. Dessert was very delicious- hazelnut chocolate something and the chocolate covered strawberries were wonderful. Love we can make reservations over open table- so convenient. Our service was top notch from hostess to waitress. Will be returning.

Our server, Erika I think, was outstanding, and the kitchen even sent us a tray of free chocolate-covered strawberries at the end of our meal, because I'd told them in the reservation notes that this was a hot date (and it was!). We were well taken care of, and my scallops and her risotto were delicious. It's easy to forget Brock's since it's part of the hotel, but it's a mistake to overlook what they offer.

Kids were running around everywhere screaming, the menu was hard to understand, it was limited and costly in comparison to the experience. The service was really good. I couldn’t help to feel like we were at Disney where the service is always good but the restaurant’s quality is poor and the children are wild.

I have been here many times. It is always a delight. This time we ordered the full top and middle parts of the menu. Yep. Top and middle. We enjoyed ALL of it. I love the tapas here, and the antipasti is equally lovely.
This is one of my favorite places for food and service.
Brittany and Eric were fantastic.

So much potential, but falls short of the mark.

Saturday, 7/14/18, 8p.
Wife and I were seated immediately, restaurant was nearly empty (only 5 tables occupied), with a dull atmosphere.
Limited menu... NO beef dishes (steaks) at all! No specials. Pork tenderloin and lamb dishes were listed at $50.
Waitress was seemingly not well versed in the antipasti selections of meats or cheeses.
Service was otherwise fine.
Antipasti appetizer was very good. Flatbread and grouper dishes were OK. Wine selection is very good with reasonable prices.

Ross Bridge is a fantastic resort that deserves a better fine-dining, destination-type restaurant. We've spent a birthday weekend here for the past 9 years and every year we agree that Brock's is simply no where near a Perry's, Fleming's, Ruth's Chris, or other restaurant that we would normally go for a special dinner. Its simply convenient, and that's a shame.

We decided to do a stay-cation at Ross Bridge and dined at Brock’s Saturday night. We got dressed up and looked forward to a great meal. Brock’s did not disappoint. We shared a mushroom flatbread with a couple of Old Fashioneds to start off. The flatbread was excellent! We both had the filets for dinner with a fantastic red wine from Tuscany. We were full after all that but managed to find room for Creme Brûlée. The meal was excellent and the service was fantastic! It’s pricey but worth the money for a special night out!

We made reservation though Open Table but when we were seated, I guess none of the staff knew who was suppose to be waiting on us. It wasn't very busy, so a waiter
apologized and said he would take care of us. He brought us an antipasto tray, which was a lot and very good. Our meals was good, but I ordered the seafood with homemade linguini but when it came out it had a lot of big flat noodles, and he said they must have run out.
Fillets were tasty but needed to be aged out.
This restaurant is in a very nice hotel, and was advertising a valentine special but there're wasn't any tablecloths on a Saturday night.
They also, didn't charge us for our first round of drinks, which was very good!!

We made a reservation in advance even though we did not anticipate needing one, which we certainly did not. Our party, and a few others, were seated near the party room which had a very loud group of people there. Though the prices were ambitious, the food and service were very good. However, the hostess had no clue about how to ensure patrons in an uncrowded restaurant could be the most comfortable. In fact, though people were complaining about being seated near the loud group when other tables were available, she seemed not to have a clue as to the problem.

I live in the neighborhood and took a large group to Brock's for dinner last Friday. The service was beyond horrible and I was incredibly embarrassed! First off, you could hear everyone from the kitchen yelling, joking and cursing at each other. It sounded like they were having a big party in the back! Next, the waitress had ZERO personality! We had to ask for a drink menu, she never introduced herself and just asked what we wanted. She didn't share the dinner specials and I think maybe spoke five words to us the several hours we were there! Mind you we were big spenders getting everything from drinks to appetizers, entrees and dessert and never once just "checked" on us. Surprising since the entire restaurant was a ghost town. Next time I host a dinner, I will be taking them to Front Porch instead. Sad that you can't take advantage of Brock's when you live in the neighborhood and have a good meal and good service. I would even settle for good not great and this service was POOR! Will not be returning.
