Best of everything

We had a great experience with Jason at Brock’s. It was such a relief to find a venue with a scenic overlook, food, drinks, dj, tables, chairs, linens all in one place. Jason went out of his way to accommodate me more than once and was kind the whole time. Highly recommend!

My husband and I have always enjoyed going here for lunch, date nights, or dinners & love that’s it’s right on the river. It was a no-brainer when the decision came down to where our rehearsal dinner would be before our wedding. Jason was helpful, kind, & very responsive! Jason even helped with deciding what to have for our menu when I was indecisive. Us, along with our guests, we’re delighted with the room, food, and service. Everything was EXCEPTIONAL! I couldn’t have been more happy with the way everything went.
