About Us

Brought to you by Jonathan and Victoria Paddock, this restaurant is local through and through. Jonathan and Victoria are local entrepreneurs, who’ve been self-employed since 1999. They’re proud of where they’re from, and believe strongly in giving back to the community in which they belong. They love food, and a great dining experience, and wanted to bring what they love to St. John’s. While dining tastes are more casual today than most “fine dining”, life’s milestones continue, and our busy lives highlight the need to pause and gather to share a special meal in a very special place. This is The Rock Steakhouse.

Sourcing local wood for the interior, partnering with local businesses, and hiring the best local folks: The Rock aims to be your place. Your place to celebrate milestones, to enjoy a relaxed evening with someone special, to host a special event, or to just sit at the bar and enjoy the atmosphere and great drinks. That work meeting. A Christmas party with your ‘bubble’. Let us take care of you.
